This HAS to be saved for posterity.

So I'm talking to Chloe on Facebook, and when Choe went to make her tea, she put James on. Here's an excerpt from our conversation:

Me: Haha so has Chloe told you I'm going to visit you all around Christmastide?

Yuletide, rather.

Hold on, it's a quarter to one in the morning and they are eating Toblerone?

Chloe: She has indeed. It's likely I won't be there - I'm not planning on returning to Ireland after I go back to school in September.

Eh, yup. We're all what you could term 'insomniac's.

Me: NOOOOO!!! You have to. We have to meet!

Just!! for a day.

Chloe: Trust me, not even the promise of nightly sex (it hasn't been promised yet) could drag me away from Lonsgbu righbs .\vg frd eghn ,.noi gikbl

flj vcdev

Me: the what?

Chloe: jl p;; o

Ohmygodohmygodohmygod, I can't believe the asshole typed that. =O

Me: Lmao, I'm missing something.

Chloe: James..ohhhhhhhh my God I'm morto right now.

(Oh yeah, and this is Chloe.)

Me: This is why he has to come back to Ireland to meet me!

I am literally laughing so hard I'm crying.

Chloe: I am too, but I'm also quite paranoid because the last time I wrestled a keyboard off somebody like that, my sister broke her foot. =P

Also what he just said. WOW he's being kicked out now. =P


HTML peace signs!

Dude, I just found this on the webs.

That's just.
super cool.


Chloe, I think I earned you like, twenty euro today..
I've been clicking on your blog like mad all day, whenever I've had the chance.

Therefore, if you get plenty of money from this...

You won't have any excuse not to give me pretty moneygrams...


As of today, the 12th graders are gone. Which sort of means, I am a senior. ... On the other hand, it's Senior Prank Day. I'm slightly scared.


Games and contests!

Chloe and I have talked about this already, but me and the boy have a bit of a contest going on.

The game is as follows:
We don't have a name for our relationship.
We're more emotionally serious than friends with benefits, and we're very close to dating- but not quite there yet.
We are trying to come up with a name for our relationship-thingy, and decided to make it a game!
Well, see, we've been at it for about three days, and it's super fun.
The game ends this Friday (5/21/2010) at 5pm American Central Time (GMT-6 hours). The reason it's so short is because we're going to see each other next Sunday... two days after the game ends! And I'm SUPER EXCITED!!!
Iiiiannnnn!! Please help!!! I trust yours and Chloe's imaginative minds, and I REEEALLLY wanna win!!

Rules are:
1. Winner picks their own prize
2. We have to tell each other our potential prizes by the end of the game
3. We can ask friends for help, but not our mutual friends (i.e., Marianne and Bret)
4. If we can't decide on a winner, we both get our prize. ;)

My prize, if I win:
He plans and takes me on a date.
He's already told me a few things about where he's planning- he's taking me to the
Mongolian Grill and then a crappy movie. (You can guess what that part's for ;) that was my idea.) Seeing as, at this moment, there are only children's movies, romantic comedies, and the new remake of Nightmare on Elm Street in theaters... Looks like we'll be seeing a crappy romantic comedy. (Considering seeing Just Wright with Queen Latifah. I like Queen Latifah, but.. well, the movie's about basketball.)

His prize, if he wins:
I swear, this boy constantly thinks with his genitalia. He wants to go as far as I feel comfortable with. It's not really my place to ask, since we're not really together, but sometimes I wonder if he's no longer a virgin (he was dating a college chick for a while, so I have my doubts that he is, although she never really seemed to me like she had it in her), or still a virgin but rather desperate to not be.

Either way, he and I are going to be at his house afterwards, watching The Nightmare Before Christmas. He's never seen it, so I'm going to definitely school him... and I've made him promise that he will watch the movie and not me. It was hard for him to promise it, but I told him that we have the whole rest of the day to spend on each other.

Anyway, I'm sure that my dear art teacher is getting irritated that I'm not working on things for her class, so I should probably post this and GTFO.

I have four, and he has one.
Mine: friends with potential (Jenny), flirtationship (Chloe), fauxmance & fromance (both from Khari. Fromance: friends + romance).
His: confused romantics.

Thus far, I am winning, and intend to stay this way.


So i haven't bitten my nails in almost two weeks, which is a big thing for me- I've been a nail biter for over ten years. But... What will i do when i've quit?


I feel like I'm having an identity complex.

is not my name. it doesn't feel like it.
is the same way. there's no distiction there.

And my last name?
Definitely not. it doesn't seem like it's mine.

I don't feel like I have a name, or a me, or a someone.

there's just.. i don't really know. I don't know how this happened, me not having a name and all...

but it did. I don't know when it happened, either. I'm just- someone else.

Like, I've changed since moving here- I'm still the same person, but different. I'm used. I'm disrespected. I'm...

different. from them. everyone.

I can't relate to people here, and the ones I have, even a little, will be gone soon. (graduating seniors and all that.)

But where is me? Who is me?

it's somebody else, that's for damn sure.

I want to find it, me, her, whoever. I'm still Harlequin, to a degree, but who else am I? Who's the real me?

I think right now, Harlequin is the only name I have, and people don't even know who she is.


I really must avoid falling for fictional characters. Steven Hyde, man... Not only is he a hella hottie, he's also a nonconformist, anarchist, and zen master.


Two good news! 9/24/09

[Back to vintage blogs for the time being…]

Ok, we’ll start with good news:

I am morally against dissection (but we know this). When I first added Animal science to my schedule last year, the counselor told me there wouldn’t be any dissections. But, as I found out, there is a major unit involving the dissection of a cat. However, she and I talked about it, and we agreed on alternate work for me. The unit’s not for a couple months yet, and she hasn’t ordered the cats, but I went on PeTA2 today and found a couple alternate options to the whole class dissecting: virtual dissection software. Like, legit stuff, interactive and not just pictures. But this means that not only will cats have to die for the purpose of education, I can score some street team points on the PeTA2 site. Amazing!!

Then, more good news:

Brokencyde is playing in St. Paul on October 16th! I have the money, the ride there and back, and the friend to go with. (But Spencer might not be able to go, since he’s slightly broke ATM, but I told him, “Dude, I will pay for your ticket AND gas money. I need this concert.”) All I need to know is the time it’s at- ‘cos it’s a Friday, and I have school that day, plus the ride there and back, and finding a parking spot… Oh, and Permission. I need that too. Those are the things I need to know for parental purposes, but I’d personally like to know what openers are playing. Anyway, I’m grounded ATM, but I’ll be ungrounded on the 6th, so I don’t think that’ll be much of a problem. I’m just a little more concerned with… well, sucking up to my folks.


That's cute. Just... cute.

Love is the fart
Of every heart.

For when held in,
Doth pain the host-

But when released,
Pains others most.


Ha, so I'm looking through some notes I've kept for years. I'm not even halfway through the pile and have found two confessions of love to me from others. Wow.
Sure, my new Vans LOOK cool... Ah, but the backs of my ankles hurt like Fudgie Wudgies hurt a diabetic's blood sugar.


I just bought new Vans. They're lovely. Oh, and rather expensive. They sucked up half my money. I also bought a new pair of glasses and some makeup.


I think, even after I'm famous, I'm still going to use Dollar Store makeup. That stuff is amazing. oh and Happy Paddy's Day! You folks partyin' it up?


So for art, I get to do a sort of pen rendering technique that uses words for the shading. I'm doing four Tyra pictures with words like confidence and beauty.
