Next time EVERYONE decides to skip a club except for the person that offered a ride...it might be wise to let that person know. just for future reference.

library podcast

i was talking to justin via blog comments, and he said he wants us 2 do another podcast when we get the chance. he said george's idea of doing it on Brisngr was a good one, so i said we would all have to read it first. he's also accepting book reviews, as always...(soph, go to cmclibraryteens.blogspot.com and listen to the Teen Podcast #1. it's us.) so, anyone who reads the inheritance trilogy should think about doing a podcast for the library...
on the subject of Halloween...is everyone planning on going trick-or-treating? i was thinking maybe we could go to the library party, but if u'd rather not, i'd rather not go alone. but maybe we could trick-or-treat as a group through court house, like last year, n stop in on the library party? just a thought. oo, i need a costume idea...i was trying to think of practical applications for a snowflake costume, but couldnt come up w/ any...

Madison and I won't be able to party this weekend as we're headed up to her relatives' house in PA.
I know you all know this but just a reminder.

I am sorry I'm a grouch at youth group. usually I am worried about math the next day or irritated at various people present.

I hope you all have fun this weekend

Best regards

Popped in my head...

This book is so awesome I can do anything
This book is so awesome I am the potions king
Did you hear that Half blood Prince
I said I was the king
Can you hear me Professor Snape
I can make anything.
This book is so awesome....

By Harry and The Potters.

He's not gay

I was just told so by someone who I trust more than those people who told me he was gay. Plus I got the roommates mixed up. Stupid naive me.
i'm not sure whether or not I'm excited about this. Gay guyfriends pwn, they're just so uncomplicated... on the other hand... he is quite a nice lad. But he wouldnt be into me anyway, so that shouldnt really matter.

I was looking and found this.

For anyone who doesn't know it's a post card sent in to postsecret. It's a project book thing were you send in your secrets of any type in on a post card. They have copies of Post Secret at the Library so go check them out if you like the idea.

Pink EYE!

The Pink eye is official. Left eye pink eye. Thank you Doctor I could have told you there. I begged my mom to let me stay home today but for the next three days I have eye drops ever 2 hours. fun fun.

I moved

my blog moved. From caboodlesofspaz to http://LaurenRodia.blogspot.com

Check it out!

I just met a freakishly nice guy

and spent an hour with him at lunch, where he saved me heroically from becoming an evil russian girl's appetizer. i was pretty excited about this
Then i realized that he is gay and possibly in a relationship with his roommate.

Story of my life

It hurts!


I have seen my doom, and it is scary beyond belief. And kinda smells like socks. THE ELDERLY VERSION OF LAUREN WAS SEEN TODAY. How did I know? I walked up to her and asked her if I could help with anything, only to notice that she was standing alone petting a peach.

But they are fuzzy, so I understand what goes on in E.L.'s brain

IM WORKING ON IT! I can't have a party this month because I am working. And have school. So maybe next month. Or on my birthday. But not now...

And btw TEAM LIMO. Because we all remember the pumpkin smashing incident. And how people inviting people for you doesn't exactly work out as planned. But maybe I just have horrible luck. Idk

Slightly less boring than school

I have something I need you guys' help with.

I've been talking to my parents and they want me to decide what i'm doing for my birthday. i didn't even know i was having a party until yesterday. anyway, they said some possible ideas could be to rent a place and have a dance-type thing where i can invite everyone i know OR to rent a limo and take only my closest friends to see a show in Atlantic City or Philly (sorry, no New York).
As much as i like the dance idea, i dont think i'd be able to get enough people to come.
If i'm having my party this year (as apposed to the beginning of 2009), possible dates are either the weekend before Thanksgiving break or the weekend before Christmas break.

So, I really need you guys' opinions on these plans. let me know what you think of the party choices i have right now or give me some new ideas that i could mention to my parents. also, what do you think of the possible dates?
Help me out here guys, you know how INDECISIVE i am!!!

Friday, September 12, 2008


I realized something today...The blog is very boring. But mainly because school is boring. And work is boring. And then I realized that I've died. As in, because of my fear of internet dial up, I haven't been on AT ALL.
So I have a sekrit. Yes, it isnt spelled that way. We all talk like we dont see each other (Sophie excluded because she is being awesome in Germany and we are having soph withdrawl). It makes me sad, even though it kinda cracks me up. In a strange way. Where is the randomness? Where is the eggo waffle stalking and mandarin orange eating? WHERE IS THE KID WITH THE UNDERWEAR ON HIS HEAD DANCING THE CHA CHA SLIDE?!?!?


now im driving myself crazy trying to remember what song it was! need to write these things down!
i wonder if there even was a song. that would be so like me...like just KNOWING that i had to call george last night but not knowing why, then i realized it was really kaity i had to call...haha.

The Blog

I see what everyone means about the blog dying out a bit...but maybe this is just cuz we mostly know what we're all doing every day and it isnt very exciting?
I have no plans for the weekend, as of yet, tho i need to talk to my boss to see if im working. I kinda hope i am, because i lent my twilight to a turkish girl that wont be in the country for much longer...
today in exploratory we made PB&J sandwichs at each other's instructions and cracked up laughing at the stupid mistakes/leavings out/jelly flinging everywhere/etc. Several of the boys had about 5 sandwichs, cuz no one wanted theirs...soon we'll start the real class tho.
and...not much else going on (that im willing to post about, anyway, haha). so, i shall go, and check the retarded teen ink emails i got, and look up song lyrics (i 4get which song, but im sure itll come back to me soon.)
ttyl, yall

Secrets, Literature, Candlelight and Caves

So yesterday my Politics Class went to the State Parliament. We watched elected, well-payed representatives of the people insult and yell at each other like ill-educated preschoolers and then we had a long dicussion with the president of parliament, where we kinda attacked him... a lot. But we were way more polite and content-oriented than the members of parliament, so.
The whole point of the story is something completetly different though. On the trainride, we randomly came to talk about the Dead Poets Society and I was like: Hey, why dont we start something like that? Especially seeing we're a boarding school and all
And then the girl across from me said: Well, i'm part of a club that is kinda like that. But it's sort of a secret... I can take you the next time.
Can you imagine how excited I got? So apparently they meet at night in a cave in the woods where they read poems and literature or stuff they wrote themselves. weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! It's just like the Dead Poets Society!!
I was totally filled up with bounciness due to this when we got back to campus. But that's when it got even crazier.
There was a note on my door with my name written on it and a very beautiful poem from the point of view of a girl that died somehow. On the back there was written "What happened to me? Come to the the blackboard (there's this huge blackboard in one of the hallways) at 7:30pm"
All of this was in English. Which made me guess that it was coming from the American Literature Club for which I gad signed up, but seriously? Which school club club would do something that awesome?! So I went to the blackboard and it turns out I had been right. The club is just really that awesome. Everyone got different poems, which by the way come from the "Spoonriver Anthology" one of my favorite poetry collections, and together they were a puzzle that told a story. The people are interesting. Everything is discussed in English. The projects we will work on are things like an E.A. Poe themed Halloween party, and last but not
least: Our next meetings are gonna be held in the attic of an unused wing, the "duke-house". !!!!!
So I'm in two really awesome-seeming literature clubs now. I have dreamed my ENTIRE LIFE
of having a literature club! Even before I was able to read!
AAHHH! This is making me so excited, that i had to ramble on about it in a huge post!!!

Gotta go and read now... Bye!!!!

By the way: could it be, that the blog is getting less lively? What happened to commenting and posting random things? and what happened with Lauren? oh, if you read this lauren: i'm sending your letter this weekend. sorry that I'm such a pen-turtle

Saturday, September 6, 2008


I haven't been posting on here anything to exciting other then pictures. To tell the truth that is because I have little to say right now. Nothing has been happening other then Lauren and I hanging out. I post mostly on my personal blog thats were you can read most of whats going on in my head. I love when I get comments on there to tell the truth. I will try and post on here more but for now you can pretty much find me there.

Scabbers' story part II

Just letting you know: The mouse has been caught and set free into the garden. And my room has been nearly destroyed in the process. But oh well. I have to give lots of credit to foxi, who assisted awesomly, without even touching scrabbers. And he looked adorable while doing it, too.

So i finally got a reply from that email i sent to Chris J.

Hey Girl!
Good to hear from you. Hope all is going well and thanks for the kind words... check out the new video on Monday!

urgh..."hey girl" ? i told him what my name was...he couldnt even answer the question i asked!!
at least he wrote back...

My new pet

It's a mouse. It's living in my room. Fix brought it in yesterday night - at 1 am. I made him let go of it and bam: it immediately ran into my room. Of course it's perfectly healthy too, because Fix never kills his mice. He just kinda treats them like the toy-mice we always give him: Carries them around, plays a little - he never hurts them intentionally but being carried around in a mouth with sharp teeth tends to be a little damaging for your health...
Anyway, the poor little thing is hiding somewhere in my room now, which by the way looks like a warzone due to me chasing it all night and morning. Have you ever tried to catch a mouse with your bare hands? It's not fun, let me tell you. It takes for ever to find a tiny little mouse in a stuffed room in the first place, but even if you do find it somehow - it's just way too fast. And able to run to places you can't reach.

I already tried to make Fix&Foxi catch her for me, but not even they were succesful. After a very exciting morning, they just kinda gave up. I can't let them in my room unsupervised now, which annoys them too.

Since I can't tell when this mouse-affair will be over, I've decided to name the little thing. I was thinking Scabbers or Fridolin (you pronounce it Freedoleen). Any other suggestions? I would also be really grateful if anybody could tell me what to feed a mouse, since I don't want it to die because 1) that would be very sad and 2) i'd like to avoid a rotting corpse at some unknown place in my room. I put bread at random spots, but she (i've decided I need some ostrogene-type support in my household, so it's become a girl) didn't touch it, instead she prefered old newspapers. i think I can actually hear her nagging on something under my desk right now... i should go.

Love, Sophie

Being the cleaning lady's daughter has its perks

So i sometimes go to help ma clean the condos or houses that she does on the side, cuz she really doesnt like doing it by herself and i can use the spare cash. So today she takes me to do a house that she's been talking about for a while. So we're driving down avalon and im thinking about towing, cuz we passed the dock we go off of. And i realize all those huge houses that we like to look at and pick out from the boat are the ones to our left. So im thinking, im gonna laugh if we turn left and go to one of those houses.
We turned left. when we get to the house, first thing i do is go on the back porch and look back at the house from the dock, to see if it looks familiar. sure enough, i definitely recognized it. haha...so if i get to go towing again, ill point it out to u.
anyway, the house was pretty awesome.its 5 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, porches everywhere looking out on the water...it was the type of rich old lady's house that has an elevator and dozens of knick-knacks and oriental rugs that, combined, are probably worth more than all the furniture in my house (which isnt really saying much, considering we occasionally get furniture out of other ppl's garbage....) but anyway, u get the point. the entire 3rd floor was the master bedroom. The master bath was about the size of one of ur bedrooms (smaller than mine, but mines a ginormous attic room...). The master closet was alice- sized. and mostly empty...
the one detail u guys would have loved, tho, would be incredibly insignificant to most people...see, i now know what i would look like if i had a mind-controlling alien inside my brain. in two of the bathrooms, there were these mirrors/ light fixtures. the light went around the outside of the mirror, and it was completely circular. when you went up close to the mirror, you could see, going right around ur pupils, a glowing silver ring that was the reflection of the light. now, u KNOW what that reminded me of.
anyway, the whole thing reminded me of good charlotte's "lifestyles of the rich and famous..." but the owner seemed pretty nice...she owns a car dealership or something. this was just her summer house. she has 3 others. and this was her small one.
anyway, rant over for now i think. im so jittery about tomorrow...burning my tongue on chamomile tea...not cool that im starting to get a cold just now...anyway, i think ill go now. i think i have everything set up for tomorrow...ugh! gotta go zone out to nirvana and maybe fall asleep sometime...hopefully not waking up at 3:30 once again....

A couple things

So I havent posted in a while. Here's some babbling about the past few days.

1.) RevGen: AHHH! It was A M A Z I N G! I have this intense addiction to Skillet now. I've had the CD on repeat. I'm still listening to it. Creepy right? Yeah next time (if there is a next time, i hope there is) I'll know all the words. I hate going to a concert where i dont know all the songs. TobyMac was the only one i knew that well. I've been listening to Kutless too but not as much as Skillet.
Surprisingly and thankfully I didnt have nightmares about Flyleaf's bass player even though SOMEONE put some very disturbing images in my head! (Joe!)
Yay! I got to talk to Sophie on the phone!
And we got to see peoples from school that i hadnt seen all summer!
Yum, giant breadstick.

It was a very good day!

But now my face is peeling from the sunburn. I'm gonna be peely going back to school ewwww.

2.) Guess what i did Sunday!!!
I went to see The Rocker! Wooooo! And it actually didnt suck as bad as i thought it would be! yes! I mean, it wasnt funny and there were parts that made me wince and want to cover my brother's ears but it was ok. there were two things that made it bearable. 1. Teddy Geiger. 2. The drummer dude "Fish" actually had a personality aside from being completely insane and a wild party animal. He's very good with the kids in the band. My favorite part was when Curtis (Teddy) was all depressed because they couldnt get a gig and Fish took him for a car ride and blasted their music. it was nice.
And you know what else is nice? Teddy Geiger played an emo kid. and let me tell you, he makes a HOT emo kid!!! *drool* He had a few bad*** scenes which were pretty awesome. Like when he totally told off the band's jerky manager.
the end of the movie was so corny. and you know how i love corny.
Ahh... ;-)
