anyway...I too am psyched for friday!! really can't wait. and i actually get to see u guys!! i miss u all so much...well, we'll be seeing each other soon enough, right? feel free to call anytime, any of u! well, if it's 2 am or something i probably won't answer, but I'll try to get back to u ASAP...
Guess what!!! I'm buying The Rocker soundtrack when we go to Borders on Friday!!! When I discovered the soundtrack was already out (which made my whole week pretty much), I started hopping up and down squealing... you know what that looks like ;-D
The CD has 9 Teddy Geiger songs on it and 3 other random songs from the movie.
;-D ;-D ;-D
Ok, I'm done now...
I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Going with gibson to see obama was awesome - I put the video up on my channel.
I introduced him (gibson, not obama) to brotherhood 2.0 with Hank's Harry Potter songs. He liked it! So now he's officially a Nit. I've been working a lot on french lately - which is strange. i start speaking french at random situations. I dont even like french.
Also, i'm now the official caretaker of the evil-bunny-brigade for the rest of the summer. Which means I need to eat a lot of vegetables, in order to have enough leftovers for them. i'm not entirely sure if that makes any sense. The Catcher in the Rye is really awesome, by the way. If anybody gets the chance, you should definitely read it. Although I'm not sure, if any of you will like it too much... but it's not a book that you need to like in order to like it.

Not only is Mamma Mia full of head exploding ABBA awesome-ness, but it also has a trio of hot old guys, a tattooed butt, exploding dolphin mosiacs, and random background singers that pop up out of nowhere. Occasionally in flippers.
back to the topic.
Ok After having watched the most recent batman movie, i must say that it was amazing, and you should go see it, whoever of you reads this.
ok reason number 0: the plot. well technically i cant tell you about the amazing plot i dont want to ruin the fun. so sorry.
reason 1: The joker. Im sorry but heath ledger did an amazing job conveying a genius who sees the world differently than the rest of us. Ok you know how johnny depp invented his own, inventory of mannerisms and odd actions for his role in pirates (his floppy wristed gestures, odd way of walking, frequent side glances, etc.), well ledger did just as good, but hes portraying a far more twisted character, so that makes the movie all the more startling because of the realisticy-ness of the joker.
reason 2: Everyone else. Absolutely every actor did an amazing job specifically the old dude who played alfred the butler person. sorry not as familiar with the actor so i cant give a name and im too lazy to look it up. but regardless, he did a great job. that character was quite often funny. very cool.
reason 3: the implications. Similar to wall-e, this movie has some startling implications, but you have to dig deeper to see them. Essentially the underlying theme of the movie is 'what is the nature, of human nature?' its an exploration of human nature in its realities, diversity, and the question; are we all intrinsically good or evil or neither? sorry i notice this stuff and sorry that sounded cliche buuut its true.
so go see it or rent or buy it when it comes out.
il see you guys soon i hope,
I will make a new video tomorrow, because gibson and I are going to the speech that Obama will give here. I'm very excited for that. Oh, and before you roll your eyes at me: It was Gibson who suggested it =)
French Class is starting to be really fun, but my head is beginning to be such a mess, that Babel looks like a little shack in comparison. Beth, the weird-words-story is progressing, but it's getting kind of creepy... although it started out as a comedy... sorry. I'm going to look for Fix now. If i can't find him before the maid starts vacuumcleaning, a disaster is bound to happen. And it will involve extremely dangerous biological weapons in the form of pee...

In honor of one year. I will be re reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. (typed in Deathly Hallows orange)
I have decided to lift my blog's imaginary curtain. I don't expect anybody to actually read it, though. I mean, that would be great, but I dont think the stuff there would interest you so much... You can get to it by clicking on my name at the bottom of this page or you can go over the adress: www.theblogwiththeaccent.blogspot.com
As you might remember, I ran around with a videocamera a couple of times in the past months. I've started digitalizing the tapes and ... today i tailored the first Amoeba video out of it and uploaded it on our channel! Check it out! Either on our channel http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAmoebaOfAwesome , or right below this post.
I've also (rather accidentaly) started on working today on a very secret nerdfighter project, that I've been planning to do for a while and which will be subject of at least one video. It will be made of awesome, in a totally altruistic way.

My mom was going through our old books and she holds up Pooh Gets Stuck!
from the other end of the basement I yelled, "Keep that!"
my mom gave me the weirdest look, but handed the book to me.
for those of you who don't know, Pooh Gets Stuck is one of the most awesome titles with the "in my pants" rule.
Pooh Gets Stuck... IN MY PANTS!!! Yay!
Everybody else should too if you like. But Sophie must! Only because I can't call her and tell her all the stupid things I do. Like getting run over. And i post on there almost every day unlike I do here.

So after i had these names established, i was using 2 vacuums in another condo. one was clumsy, difficult and broke easily. Bella, of course. the one i had to use when it broke was small, dainty and efficient. Alice. There's still one I haven't decided yet...
And just so u know, this isnt pure obsessiveness. Its pure boredom.
anyhoo, news from the band that you may or may not care about, we will be actually recording some stuff this week and sticking it up on myspace. We are working to (gasp) play stuff that sounds good instead of brandon trying to just do complex/heavy stuff. anyhoo
the songs in the works are a cover of 'push' by matchbox 20, 'Angel' the first song with the music written by me, dedicated to madison, of course. And 'close' the first song co-written by ryan. That one is dedicated to Tozer.
oh yeah we have a dillemma, should we have meghan mehan, whos a reeeaaly emotional sounding amazing singer, but shes picky abourt what she sings, or madison who has a very sweet voice and would sing along to a buzzsaw but isnt as skilled. rrrrrrrr decisions.
anyway sorry for bugging you guys just figured id spew some things that had been bothering me.
Lauren, I commented on every single one of your posts, expect for the ones that already had comments. Your invisible glowing in the dark readers are gonna think I'm stalking you. Also, i'm proud to announce that the works on my blog are progresssing (Which, if u start from zero, is not hard to achieve). Sometime soon I will officially open it. So that in the unlikely case that u want to hear me rambling on about stupid stuff that I consider unworthy of this blog, you have a place to go.
Joe, I'll leave the house tomorrow at 7 - 7:30 pm my time and 1 - 1:30pm yours. But I'll probably be home all day before that, cause I'm a couchpotatoe like that. Just in case you still want to call me.
I digitalized old tapes of us today. It was very funny... and a little sad. I'll try to load some of the stuff up some time. And maybe make a collage, if I feel really artsy and find the time
Something of great historical importance has happened while I wrote this post. The Amoeba has an official youtube channel! It's right here. To get the password, just contact either George, Lauren or me privately. I will try to upload some of the stuff I just mentioned there. Tomorrow, probably.
There's a Jason Mraz concert!! On a thursday , the 2nd of october! i was going to die out of dissapointment, because Jason Mraz may very well be my favorite pop-artist (if you dont count the beatles as pop. which you probably should. but then Jason Mraz wouldnt be my #1 anymore. so don't). But on the typical thursday in october, I'll be in boarding school. Then I realized: The 3rd of Otober is national holiday, so I'll probably get home thursday afternoon! YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!!!!! This is one of those few occasions where i just love my country. George, without you i would have never known Jason! You probably put it on my playlist cause u thought i might like it... and I LOOVE it. and you. Thanks so much!!
Congratulations, you got to the end of my way-too-long-chain post. As reward you get a video! Enjoy. (And YES, the first part is sideways.) (For those of you with weak stomachs: The video includes scenes of me shoving thing that may or may not be eatable in my mouth. So beware) And NOW you get to enjoy. If you can call it that.
oh god. I do not know, why there are THREE of these. Sorry. Can't change it
so i am proposing (for the girls, joe isnt really expected to get excited about this) a mall run, up to the Hamilton Mall or Shore Mall or one of those. It's been a while, and i for one still need to replenish my wardrobe for when I start at Tech. I'm sure none of u would mind coming along ;-).
so...my days off are wednesday, thursday, and friday usually. My mom has off work thursday and possibly friday, i believe, so shes willing to drive 4 of us one of those days, preferably thursday. if any of u can/ want to come...
pls tell me ur schedules 4 work, if u have a steady one, itll make planning attempts so much easier :-(.

1) Shopping at the boardwalk and my friend got a ring stuck on her finger. Anyone whos gone jewelry shopping with me knows I have some experience in this subject. I asked the foreign teenage boys behind the counter for windex, because it would help make her finger slippery and get the ring off. They thought I was going OCD. Tho I think they were very impressed when it actually worked ;-).
2) My cousin's IN-CRED-I-BLY cute "friend" Mike, who my mother introduced to me while I was chowing down on a turkey leg. I'm sorta hoping he likes girls who like meat...and isnt my cousin's sometimes-bf i've heard about...and will be there again today...tho all those things are probably very unlikely.
well, that's all i have to say for now. and to those (nonexistant) outsider readers, I am not insane so much that i should be locked up. I promise. No matter what Kathleen says.
WATCH IT!! It's the same trailer they used for that clip on ET, but this is complete and u hear the actors (*sigh*) insted of some random anchorman. It's awesome. I nearly fainted.
I'm glad you liked my randomly videotaped outburst of dorkiness. I'm gonna make updates very soon, I just haven't decided on topics yet... It's either german junkfood or some major fix-bothering... Also it would be really amazing if people who have some kind of camera could make videos, too. A photocamera works just fine for youtube. Just so we could, you know, keep track , get to know different sides of each other... it would be fun. Just putting that out there.
kaiti!! Survivalpackage weeeeeeeeee!! but you know that shipping stuff is pretty expensive, right? Don't go broke because of some weird german girl... And congratulations to your winning Breaking Dawn! I can cope. It actually makes me feel pretty special - I'm the only one who'll get to wait. I mean, when you are already long done with the book and have to put up with everyday life and not-as-good-as-Stephenie-Meyer books, I'll still be totally caught up in the awesomeness of Breaking Dawn!! Yay!
öü! ßßßßßßßß€! ÄÄÄ,
I made pasta with a friend! We didn't know where to put it, so we hang it on a laundry-hanging-thing.....

2.) Yoga. Starting the 30th at 3:45. Madison, Lauren, Kaiti, and I are all signed up. People should sign up. if not for a love of yoga, then to watch me make a complete fool of myself!
3.) There is an awesome contest on the library teen blog where you can win a free copy of Breaking Dawn! Omg! ;-) Check it out... if someone else doesn't get to it first...
4.) I just want to thank those wonderful ppl who came to visit me in the library. (or maybe you just went to the library and happened to know i was there... either way... it makes me feel special so don't ruin it.)
P.S. I can write in yellow on this new background! Yay! ;-)

I have been reading the magazine over and over again. And Robert just keeps getting hotter. Lauren can we share him? Please. I like the idea of locking us in a padded room with the books and the movie. just I NEED Harry Potter in there.
I think I am going to go with the idea Keri said about writing a story about the boy out there that loves Harry Potter as much as I do.
just felt like ranting.
I want to create my own blog because sometimes everything I want to say just does not fit on this one. I don't want to wear out this poor blog with all of my ramblings.
There's just one slight problem....
I SUCK AT TITLES!!!
So help me out; leave suggestions for blog titles i can use for my personal blog. it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I'm going to go to bed now to cry
Friday, July 11, 2008
Btw, u should all check Steph Meyer's site.
anyway...I will no longer be posting in itallics, it bothers me, this is my new font. Similar to the old one.
Today is my day off. I got up for swim practice at 6am, my bedroom is being recarpeted and I am sporadically helping, and I need to write a 500 word story titled "The Window" by tuesday which is half done, 3/4 imiagined and already over twice as long as it can be. Urgh. I'll be working from tomorrow til Tuesday I think, I get off 7:30/8ish on Saturday, so i can't come to Kaiti's party party but ill try to stop by afterwards to hang for a lil bit, maybe sleep over depending on what time I have to work Sunday, and drop off a couple things. So to everyone, I'll see you then!

it's so exciting! Well. No. It's actually kind of weird. I'm having a major culture shock . But anyway.
Gibbson and Selina were at the airport!!! That was exciting, but since they showed up out of nowhere 5 inches behind me, i couldn't do the Lauren test. Well, I guess i could have, but i would have had to run away some feet and then turn around and run back at them. Which could have been a little confusing for them.... So I just group-hugged them.
My cats recognized me!! Not that I ever doubted they would. And they were so happy to see me! Or at least Foxi was. He wouldn't let go of me until, like now. Fix was very irritated. He threw up and peed on my bed within the first 60 minutes of my arrival. And he doesn't like, that I'm taking over "his" room. So all in all he's taking it a lot better than I had expected. When I came home, my neighbors had decorated my room with flowers and pretty paperthings (I forgot the word in englsih) and a sign that said "Welcome Back". I nearly cried. A couple hours later my little neighbor aka little adopted brother came over and gave me flowers. Aw! He has grown so much!
A lot of things have changed. Little things like new furniture and new stores, and big things like... well, me. It's hard to get used to. When I went to America, I knew that things would be different, but coming back I expected it all to be the same. Which it pretty much is, I guess. But I don't fit in it like I used to. People here look so evil. In a high-heels, dead-baby-cow-purse way. And everybody thinks I'm American! Apparently I have a strong American accent. Great. So I speak English with German accent and German with an english accent. I'm probably going to be known as the girl with the accent for the rest of my life. I like pretending that I'm American, by the way. I did it first in Frankfurt, when we missed our flight, cause I felt like yelling at the airline people for their supid German-ness. But I did it in the airplane too, cause I didn't know whether I should use the formal or the informal "you" with the guy next to me (only english doesnt have this stupid formal/informal) business. It might have confused him, since I was redaing a german book... also, I find myself saying "Thank you" and "I'm sorry" to random people in the subway. And once in a while I catch myself in the middle of an english sentence. Ooops. But I'm actually considering to use a fake American identity in public. People are nicer to you. And if they say something you don't wanna hear, you can just pretend to not understand... name suggestions are welcome.
I have to continue unpacking now. There's not enough space for all my stuff!!! My little room is so messy that it scares even me - and that is saying something. Oh, and I have to study french cause I have French School for the next weeks =(
the girl with the accent

Tonight we pretty much introduced ourselves, talked about our favorite books and authors, and described what kind of writers we are. Keri gave us all a copy of her book (Kaiti, she has one for you, don't worrk). I think I'll start that tonight...
She has a blog too! It's kerimikulski.blogspot.com. So check that out.
She's doing this cool contest where she's giving away free books! (I know how excited you guys get about free books. If you dont know what i mean, i have two words for you: advanced copies.)
(That gives me two entries for linking it ;-) )
If you want to come to the next session of the workshop (which you should), come prepared with a notebook for all your writing and 5-10 of your favorite books (you could also just find them in the library when you get there).
so... i guess that's all for now!
Monday, July 7, 2008
I just wanted to remind people that the teen writing workshop starts wednesday. i want you to come if at all possible. it's from 6 to 7 p.m.
Since you can't see me, I just helped a little girl find a book. it took 3 searches. I feel proud of myself. Books awaiting...

Only when she isn't dancing"
Downloaded she is brighter. I need the CD. BAD
I posted 3 times on my blog today (http://caboodlesofspaz.blogspot.com). But then I realized the amoeba has been neglected. And also that we are getting ever closer to the 200th post. Who will get the honor of postng. I can't spell for crap.

1. You're welcome, Sophie.
2. I'm sorry, but Twilight is geeky. Emo kids can be geeky too.
3. I really want to go to the army of freshman concert!
4. I also have no life but it's because all you other ppl do and your lives apparently dont include me!
5. WHY THE HECK WILL NO ONE ANSWER ME WHEN I CALL AND TEXT YOU 17 TIMES?!?!?!
6. I wanted to have a sleepover tomorrow but since no one will answer me, it'll probably just be me, kaity and kaiti. I'm begging you, please call me back!
7. I miss everyone soo much!
Lots of love,
well as u can c, since im only posting about swim team, i am sorta lacking a life currently...i would appreciate it if u guys could help with that. of course, work is getting in the way, im not even sure if ill be able to make the army of freshmen concert saturday...will be able to go to fireworks in goshen tho, and willing to meet anyone there, but i think we'll have a full car since adams bringing Jess. (the female one, the one that doesnt want dreads. as far as i know.)
fun fact of the day: the turkish word for chug is "fundip." not sure if thats the spelling, all i know is that Ulka got the candy mixed up with the action...haha.

... I found a Twilight band.
I was bored and on Stephenie's website. I decided to go on twilightteez.com to see if there was any new stuff. There was this huge banner advertising t-shirts for a band so i was like ooh! twilight music! so i searched them on myspace and listened to the songs. The music is actually really good, if a bit slow. It's like Wrock - Twilight style! yay!
Give them a listen: http://www.myspace.com/mitchhansenband
The song called Jacob Black is really funny.
It made me happy that there were two downloadable songs! ;-)
so... yeah... now my music is even more geeky on my ipod...
