Way back in August, a movie came out called The Rocker. It was HILARIOUS! Me and my friend went to see it.
It comes out on DVD tomorrow! 😀
I’m going to buy it on iTunes, and I recommend that you do as well. It is honestly worth the money. Rainn Wilson (Dwight from the Office) does a really great and funny job in the movie. At first, he is in an 80’s hair band, but the rest of his band replaces him with another drummer to get a record deal. Then, he promises he will become more famous than them. 20 years later, after he hasn’t forgotten about his promise for a second, and he isn’t as famous as them. In fact, he’s a normal person. But when he gets a chance to join his high school nephew’s band, he does, and takes them for the ride of their life. It is absolutely hilarious to see someone who would have been cool in the 80’s be in a band with some normal high school kids! I can’t wait until tommorow!

No, it isn’t a snow day, It is pretty annoying how all the 7th graders think there will be a snow day when I’ve never had a snow day in my life, not to mention just 8th grade. Its some staff development day or something.
Anyways, tomorrow I’m going downhill skiing, then going to a party. Next week is conferences…. 😦
In other news, according to Homer Simpson, “Well I did bring this envelope full of money…. and nowadays betting in a bar is safer than any real-estate, stock, or mutual fund investment…”
The quote is actually pretty true if you think about it.

Hey Everyone! There is a 3 day weekend and I’m super happy about it! Sorry I haven’t posted since the 4th, I’ve been buried in homework 😦 I have science fair, a stupid english project, math, french, and history day.(History Day is like Science fair but with History)
Next week is going to rock! There is no school on monday, there is school on tuesday and wednesday, on thursday our entire school gets to go to either an Arcade with laser Tag, Snow Tubing, or roller-skating. I’m going snow tubing. Pretty much its mostly the 8th graders going for snow tubing and the 7th graders going to the arcade. And then we don”t have school friday because its some teacher thing day. So yeah, its going to be a pretty awesome week!

Yesterday, while on Yahoo Answers I saw an ad for Travian, and it said “Build your own Village”. Being bored out of my mind, I clicked on it. It brought me to http://travian.com. It looked somewhat interesting, so I signed up. It was a lot more fun and addicting than I realized!
You get to chose a Tribe, Romans, Gauls, or Teutons, create a Village, build stuff in it, and build stuff outside of your city limits to gather resources. There are about 150,000 registered players, with about 120,000 of them active. It is a very social and strategical game, with most of the players adults. A good thing about it is that it is very simple, no complicated graphics, so it won’t take forever to load. Also don’t be tricked by the friendly looking characters, it is a very challenging game to win.
Gameplay is based on simply a few short visits each day, basically a few minutes every couple of hours. It is definitely a waiting game, you get a number of resources per hour, it takes a while to build stuff, and it tells you when your new building will be done, and when you will have enough resources to build another building.
I recommend this game. It is free, and that never hurts! You can register at http://travian.com.

I can’t believe its 2009! Now I’ll always mistakenly write 1/2/08 on my assignments for the first week or two…. But hey who doesn’t do that?
Anyways there is a post on http://redcowz.wordpress.com with a list of archaic laws. Some of them are pretty funny! So here are some I found, with my comments in parenthesis)
In Ohio it is illegal to get a fish drunk (How would you even do that? Would a fish really just drink some Budweiser that easy so that they have to make it illegal?
In Nebraska it is illegal for a bartender to sell any beer unless they are continuously brewing a pot of soup. (???????)
In England picking up abandoned luggage is an act of terrorism. (What if you’re just returning it?)
In Minnesota a person may not cross state lines with a duck atop his head. (How would you get the duck to stay on your head?
In Texas it is illegal to shoot a buffalo from the 2nd story of a building. (What about the 3rd story?)
In Alamosa, Colorado it is illegal to throw missiles at a car. (lol)
In Boulder, Colorado, ones Llama may not graze on city property. (Are there really Llamas in Colorado?
In Iowa one armed Pianists must perform for free. (That’s kind of demeaning)
In Iowa Tanning bed facilities must warn people about the risk of getting a sunburn. (That would only be the point of a Tanning Facility)
In Kansas City, Missouri, Minor are not allowed to purchase Cap Pistols, but they may purchase shotguns
In Kansas, It is illegal to catch fish with your bare hands. (Illegal, yet impossible)
In Kansas, It is illegal to use a Donkey to help you hunt ducks. (What use would a donkey be in Duck Hunting?)
In New Mexico, Idiots may not vote. (The people who made this law must have not wanted to vote)
In Nevada, it is still legal to hang someone on your property for killing your dog. (I know a few dog people who would enjoy that law)
In Nevada it is illegal to drive a Camel on a highway (Don’t Camels live in the Middle East?)
In Illinois, the English language is not to be spoken. (I think they might have changed this one)
In Champaign, Illinois, it is illegal to urinate in your neighbor’s mouth. (Once again, the meaning of an archaic law)
In Chicago, Illinois, it is illegal to eat in a place that is on fire. (Do I really need a comment for this one?)
In Chicago, Illinois, it is illegal to give a dog whiskey. (I don’t know if the dog would want Whiskey)
