I have a stuffy nose and I'm hoping it's due to plain 'ol allergies and not a darn cold. I have a good fear it's the latter. Blegh. I dislike being sick with a burning passion. Granted, I'm not sure I know anyone who enjoys it, putting aside the fact they might be able to stay home from school and evade whatever dangers there. I swear I'm going to have to invent a machine that automatically blows my nose for me. Wow, don't I sound very lazy. Ah, whatever. It's spot-on and true.
I'm re-reading the book, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, for duel purposes. One, it is the first book our book club plans to discuss in two weeks time, and two, the sequel to it comes out on September 1st. I have it pre-ordered and everything. I seriously recommend going and checking it out of the library sometime in the near future. It is futuristic fiction, a 16-year-old female is the protagonist, there's a love interest and it's well-written.
I wish I could fast-forward time ahead enough to Wednesday so I could be done with an art project. I'm just dying to show you all! In the meantime, though, feast your eyes on this, a new art project:
A Starburst edible necklace! I was inspired by my friend, Patricia, who thought this necklace
that I already own, was really Starbursts assembled on a string. I know these two versions look pretty different at the moment, but I should probably keep the Starbursts packaged as much as possible until I'm certainly ready to eat them. Still, I thought it was a neat idea.
I went to the library yesterday to return a book that was overdue on my card, even though my mom had all the intentions of reading the book, not I. While we were there it was hard to resist not getting anything else, so we passed by the travel section and I picked out a book about Glasgow and Edinburgh. I also perused the CD section and walking away with the Atonement Soundtrack--it's already on my ipod I love it so much-- Less Than Jake's album, Anthem, Jack Johnson Sleep Through The Static, a random Paul Simon and the Broadway Original Recording Soundtrack of The Fiddler On the Roof.
YouTube videos take forever to upload and it's ticking me off. *Shouts at laptop*
