Flirt, flirt, flirt.

Ignore, ignore, ignore.

Why is this the pattern of the men in my life?!

Or shall I call them boys?

Immature B O Y S. *rolls eyes*

You'd think I'd learn something from it all too.

But no, I'm left, clueless as usual.

Please forgive me if I sound bitter.

I don't have the right to be.

Well I'm a litte exhausted from the big day today.

School, Baseball game, the movies...

Could it be that I, Andrea, have a social life?

Doubt it. haha.

And now it is time for me to leave you.

"So until we meet again, I am thinking of you always. I love you; I wish you were here.... in my arms."

Read the book.

hmmm well today was Valentine's Day and unlike my usual curse of haveing a bad day, this one was actually good. horray the curse is gone! Even tho I still do not have a "boyfriend" or "significant other" or "someone who likes me" I have nice friends and people were very nice today. Nice people make me happy. Like cake. and the word for pineapple in German (Ananana). So it was fun. and I got lots of chocolate and gave lots away. yay!

...but few people know that one of my biggest pet peeves is when people say "I hate Valentines Day cause its a Hallmark holiday. They made it up." HECK NO!! Ugh how stupid can people get!? ANYWAYS: Valentine's Day has been around since about 270 A.D. but did not become popular till about the 1400s/1500s. Anyways if you wanna know the details and educate yourself: here's a site thats pretty accurate although all the stories of St. Valentine differ slightly (some say he married the man's daughter in jail). Anyways here it is: http://www.theholidayspot.com/valentine/history_of_valentine.htm

So anyways... things have been going good so far this month... although I really dont like this month too much. But I did get my driving time and my permet. yesh. hmm its not as fun as I thought it would be tho. Anyways: here are a ton of exellent quotes for the bored and the restless:

You're only as sick as your secrets. ~Author Unknown

It is known that there is an infinite number of worlds, but that not every one is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so if every planet in the Universe has a population of zero then the entire population of the Universe must also be zero, and any people you may actually meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination. ~Douglas Adams, The Original Hitchhiker Radio Script

My heaviness comes from the heights. ~Antonio Porchia, Voces, 1943, translated from Spanish by W.S. Merwin

We dance round in a ring and suppose,
But the Secret sits in the middle and knows.
~Robert Frost, In the Clearing, 1962

I have figured for you the distance between the horns of a dilemma, night and day, and A and Z. I have computed how far is Up, how long it takes to get Away, and what becomes of Gone. I have discovered the length of the sea serpent, the price of priceless, and the square of the hippopotamus. I know where you are when you are at Sixes and Sevens, how much Is you have to have to make an Are, and how many birds you can catch with the salt in the ocean - 187,796,132, if it would interest you. ~James Thurber, Many Moons

My whole life is waiting for the questions to which I have prepared answers. ~Tom Stoppard

If you come to a fork in the road, take it. ~Yogi Berra


Happy V-day to you!

27th-Jan-2006 08:53 pm - Jealousy and Ignorance...
lindsey & me
Well I guess I'll start off with a quote, which I found to be quite true indeed:

"Silence moves faster when it's going backward" - Jean Cocteau

Don't ask. Seriously.


I'm so jealous of KATIE because not only does she get a driving time, she also gets a job... that involves birthday parties. errrrgle.

Also: I hurt. Moving heavy equipment isn't all that fun.

I keep thinking about going to Germany this summer. I'm really nervous. Why, you ask?! Here's why:


1) No mummy or daddy
2) No friends of mine going
3) Different culture= different WORLD!
4) Weird food. Nuf said.
5) How the hell am I gonna pack ALL my NEEDS in a suitcase?!
6) Too many shoes. Not enough time.
7) I even need to buy a thingy so my hairdryer will work!
8) My passport picture made me cry. It was THAT horrendous.
9) My summer is already PACKED full of activities.
10) I won't be able to breath.
11) I'm missing my GM's bday, VBS, and a chance to get my driving license.


1) Germany. HALLO!
2) Different Language. Different Culture.
3) Excitement and a Learning Experience!
4) I wanna go into the field of languages. duh.
5) So many amazing sites to see!
6) 300 types of bread. 1,500 types of pastries.
7) German boys. (In America there are more girls than boys. In Germany its the opposite. HELL YES!)
8) Chocolate. It's the best in the friggen world!
9) I'm going with Frau. HILARIOUS!
10) I'm gonna make an AWESOME video documentary... like on MTV. hah.
11) I'm gonna be the fat, obnoxious, no-idea-what-the-hell-I'm-doing tourist.
12) 2 weeks by myself. (With the exception of the whole German class...)

.... I guess #11 makes it all worth it.

Well I was gonna put more quotes in. But Im tired. NIGHT NIGHT everybody!

And a HAPPY MOZARTS BIRTHDAY TO YOU! (250 to be exact!)

.... Katie should have done a reptile-birthday-thing for him! lmao.

Later Hobbits!

lindsey & me
Well this was the first week of the *NEW* semester:

YAY! ... I think?

Anyways here are the new classes and my 1 week analysis of them:

Global Business: Ew the teacher used to go out with my dad in highschool. My parents are like good friends with the Frickes. How odd. And disgusting. Anyways the class is O.K. But, I usually day-dream about my "FUTURE" cause that's all we frickin talk about!

Safety: Teacher-kinda a jerk. Class- OMG Im so SCARED! AH! Me on the road. Creepy.

Government: O.K. Winker is EXACTLY like Mr. Welton from Immanuel. REALLY creepy. In the class tho all we do is talk and we never get anywhere. We've been on the same freeking topic for days now and in A.P. its like 1 chapter per 2 days. I like it better fast.

Well there's my physcoanalysis, Dr. Freud! yay! hmm well its 9:00ish soooo Im gonna chillax and perhaps do some Chemistry. YEAH RIGHT.. like thats ever gonna happen.

Well to leave you with a quote for thinking:

"My father always told me that all businessmen were sons of bitches, but I never believed it till now." -John F. Kennedy

Have a happy weekend!
14th-Jan-2006 07:27 pm - I HATE MY CONSCIENCE!
lindsey & me
Hallo! Happy 7:27 p.m.!

Well I guess working my ass off on my verse last night was worth it cause I got a 4 4 4 which might not sound great cause the best is a 1.. but its a personal best.. and I had hard competition. So snaps for Andrea! yay!

..But... I still feel terrible. Its not like "wah poor me" its nothing like that its more like "I'm such a bitch! Why did I do that? Why do I feel bad about it? It was nothing!! Why am I such a terrible person?!"

I dont want to spill everything but lets just say some gossip, backstabbing, and hypocritcal bullshit is going on and I took part in it. WTF!

The thing about this is that normally I dont drive myself insane about it. But God loves irony, also known as giving me a crap conscience. When I was little and I felt guilt about lieing or something stupid, my parents would know because I would cry and scream in my sleep. And its happening again. shit.

So now I dont get good sleep. Bad sleep + drama + stress + school = A very, very screwed Andrea.

Hmmm it prolly doesn't help my conscience by constantly reading Revelations and listening to depressing music.

All I can say is:

"The man who fights too long against dragons becomes a dragon himself" -Friedrich Nietzsche

Well I dont feel like whining about my life anymore. Sorry for the boring read. Later Hobbits.

.....it wouldn't have been so bad if she didn't cry..........
13th-Jan-2006 05:59 pm - chicken fillets anyone?

"They're a bit like chicken fillets really. You can hit people with them!" -talking about her temporary breast implants for Pirates - Keira Knightley

"Those of you in the cheaper seats clap your hands, those of you in the
more expensive ones rattle your jewelry." - John Lennon

"Commit the oldest sins, the newest kind of ways." - William Shakespeare (THOSE PANTS SURE DID MAKE HIM CrAZZZZY!!)

"She looks like she combs her hair with an egg beater." - Hedda Hopper

"This is on me" -(what Dorothy Parker wanted on her tombstone)

"Anybody who sees and paints a sky green and pastures blue ought to be
sterilized." - Adolf Hitler

"You have to be a bastard to make it, and that's a fact. And the Beatles are the biggest bastards on earth." - John Lennon

"I love New York City; I've got a gun." - Charles Barkley

"I don't listen to music. I hate all music." - Johnny Rotten (Sex Pistols)

"I got a lot to say, I got a lot to say, I got a lot to say. I can't remember now, I can't remember now, I can't remember now." - Ramones, "Got Alot To Say" (HMMMMM who does this one remind me of???? LMAO KATIE!)

"And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make." - The Beatles

Well I hope you enjoyed! Maybe I'll post more later... if people's eyeballs don't fall out of their skulls from boredom! Later Hobbits!
13th-Jan-2006 10:20 am - Sitting in Study Hall pondering..
lindsey & me
Hullo! I'm soooo excited for the long 3 day weekend! whoop whoop! Too bad Lynd-z's gonna be gone and there's no youth group... but it still should be cool. Well right now Im really bored (OBVIOUSLY) in Study Hall and I have 20 minutes to do nothing but surf the web. fun fun.

Well earlier at my 5th hour I totally failed my Chemistry Final. Good thing its only 10%! But that could STILL hurt my grade. ugghh I just want to go get some lunch!

Speech Tournament tomarrow at our school. I'm nervous. I'm gonna suck. But it's still ALL GOOD.

Hmmm well I'm gonna surf the web some more. Later Hobbits!

p.s.- Happy Early Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

7th-Jan-2006 11:08 pm - Jokes on Shakespear and Doctors...
lindsey & me
Hmm surprisingly Im happy! yay!

Which is surprising because I worked hard on my verse for Speech team to get it so I was comfortable with it again just to find out that I couldn't go to the meet cause I had to go to the Hospital.

I didn't end up going to the Hospital.. but the doctor's office which is fun... they didn't tell me anything new besides "eat more fruits and veggitables". Yeah right. But, my parents seem to be takeing this serious. ugh. Anyways no more talk of this serious crap. I was just reassured today how smart "DOCTORS" in this town really are.

I really wanted to make puppychow today but my mom was like no. So I didn't.

All day my dad was talking about Shakespeare. Since he's a stay at home dad all day he does wierd things... like he bought an accordian and learned how to play twinkle twinkle little star on it. he also started reading Shakespeare and making puzzles. fun.

hmm well Im tired. Church tomarrow. Later hobbits!
26th-Dec-2005 08:03 pm - Just Chilaxin
lindsey & me
AH! Basement making wierd noises! Oh well. Anyways.. my Xmas was O.K. although talking with my realitives opened my eyes to more stupidity then I really wanted to see. No women in my family have ever gone to college, in fact every single one has gotten themselves pregnent IN HIGHSCHOOL. So, I'm really living up to a lot... hah.

Anyways... so instead of having to talk with older realitives and have them explain to me about why "I should go to college" (*DUH*) I sat at the little kids table and talked about Yu-gi-o and Star Wars with all of my cousins (ALL 11 of them that happen to be boys under the age of 10) soooo that was fun! The upside was that I got to play with all of their toys... gee I <3 toys!

...But NO unfortunatly I didn't get the Barbie guitar! Dang it! Ohhh well I still got some cool stuff... like clothes, and clothes, and clothes! fun!

I hope everyone had a really HAP HAP HAPPY Christmas tho... (if any of you got the Barbie guitar.....grrrrrrrrrrr.)

LOL oh *JOY* Bill and Issac just came over.... well its time to be the "annoying" sister... Later hobbits!
lindsey &amp; me
Well, Well... technically I am supposed to be at church... but I'm not. Dad forgot and the rest of the family left. So I'm stuck here making Mac-n-cheese all by meself! Which is kinda fun, in a way.

Btw... Merry Christmas Eve everybody! Katie's in Wisconsin, Lynd-z's at home, and Caroline is MIA..? anyways... Im in a lot better of a mood than yesterday. I dunno why I was so wierd... I just get spacy like that sometimes.

Anyways, today I almost burnnnnnnt the house down [again] when my dad "decided" to make a fire in our fire place and left for choir practice.... low and behold he didn't make it "sturdy" enough and after everyone left it came tumbling down and a few ashes went onto the carpet and I had to "stomp" them out. funfun. Not to mention the fire was really hot... I didn't know fires were hot, did you?! but it was interesting. at least it didn't burn the rug... or the house...

I haaate TV during Christmas!!!! Is it law that all television stations need to show holiday specials, reruns, and marathons that last FOREVER?!?! So I've been reading and avoiding Berchtold's assignment of memorizing those Ionic compound things... however I DID write them on notecards... I was so impressed with myself I told all my friends (ALL 3 OF THEM!) and they teased me. hahah. Friends are fun.

My cat (Patchalantis) keeps staring at this glass thing in my basement.... I think she's going to attack it. hahaha. She's been avoiding me all day cause earlier I picked her up, acted like Santa Claus, and pretended she was a little kid on my lap. hahah I dont think she liked it too much but TOO BAD. It's Christmas after all, isn't it?!

OH MY GOODNESS I'm sooo excited for tomarrow! Usually on Christmas I wake up at 4:00 a.m. and annoy the crap outta my parents cause "technically" its Christmas!!! LOL they always get really pissed off for some reason, tho. Well well I think it might be time to play Christmas music and dance around. Later Hobbits!

P.S. [I'm still hoping for that Barbie guitar!!!]
