My views on the new year!:
The world won't end. The Mayans just didn't feel the need to make a new calendar 'cause they figured they'd be long gone before now. True dat, me Mayan homies!
It'll probably take till October for me to finally get the year right when I'm writing it down. That really happened last year!
I'll have another historical event to have lived through! List to come later.
And... I got nothing.
List of historical events I have lived through! In chronological order!:
I'm not sure about '98 or '99, so starting with...
Y2K! New Year's Day, 2000
The anthrax attacks! Yeah, a list of my worldly wisdom to come later.
The election of the first black president! And his visit to my hometown's county fair!
Guess what! I just said goat cheese! Random, I know...
The death of Osama Bin Laden!
Owning four parakeets! But that's not historical. And neither is goat cheese!
Two centuries, two millennia, three decades, and thirteen and a half years!
And now for a list of all my worldly knowledge!:
Don't sit up at one am on the toilet reading about the anthrax attacks of '01. It makes you get slightly paranoid.
It's hard to come up with your own worldly knowledge when you're trying to.
Osama Bin Laden autocorrects on the iPhone to pajama bin laden.
Riding a bike hurts me...
Tom makes the most AMAZING cinnamon rolls! (Mom, I don't care if you tell Tom I said that. In fact, it would be nice if you did. He would probably feel appreciated!)
Most of these posts have notes to my mom in them(... not insulting you Mom, but it's true!)
Yeah... these lists are getting boring!
Oh, and I KNOW that there's a site called ListMania, but, well, whatever. Copyrights to them, usage of spaces to me!
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How I screwed up: She said I could (maybe) come over to her house. I took that as a promise. Since I seemingly forgot all the times that happened before. But this time, I got a little over-excited about it. I kept calling her and facebooking her. I was angry, and she got even angrier right back.
And that is how I (probably!!)(but more like ACTUALLY!!!) lost my best(and only!!) friend.
So, there goes my social life!
Second part of title: Every reader except my mom won't give a **** about this. Oh, and Mom, I didn't actually type any word before the stars. I just put that there to suggest a word. Not replace a word.
Anyway. To all my non-Mom readers (of which there probably aren't any), go on with your lives! Ignore my troubles! I don't need your pity! I am a strong, independent person!
Well, I'm still working on the last part.
To you, Mom, I say this: Watch out! I may want to hang out with you more often now that I've lost Ash!
*Oh, and: I (kinda) deserve this treatment from Ash. I'm way too clingy! And she has had to deal with my over-emotional nature for far too long now! Looking back, I'm surprised she didn't ditch me before for better friends! 'Cause there are people who don't cling to her like a pool floatie whenever their mommy yells at them! They respect her! I, though I hate to admit it, used her! Poor Ash. She made a good decision in ditching me. I don't expect a Christmas present. If she does forgive me, then that means that she's probably mentally unstable!(NOT true!!!! Kidding!!!)*
So, to wrap it up: I have no social life. I'm way too clingy on my (ex)friends. Luckily, I have counseling once a week!
*Oh, and I will never contemplate suicide!! Death is scary!!!*

The title of the concert is Dinner and a Show. There's a music-boosters pork-chop dinner that I NEVER attend before the concert. The jazz band plays at that.
After the dinner is the band warm-up time. Both Jr. High and High school bands are playing tonight.
This is a really awesome thing in my perspective. Not as good as Contest, which is in March. But still, it's a big thing for the bandy-pantses! A Christmas concert!
Okay. A rundown of the schedule for ya now.
5:30-6:30: Dinner with Jazz Bands
6:30-7:00: Warm-up and last-minute-practice
7:00: Concert starts
First- 6th grade chorus
Next-Seventh and Eighth grade chorus
Then-High School regular choir
Last- Madrigal Choir
First- Jr. High Band
Then- High School Band
Last- The Bands band together to perform... The Nutcracker Suite!!
I am, of course, in the Jr. High band. So I perform with them. Duh.
Anyway, as of right now, I have two hours- no, one hour and fifty-three minutes- to prepare for the concert.

Get ready for school
Get to school at 8:11 (one minute late)
Wander around on Hoagie-bread's orders (IE, getting a butt-load of books)
Go to tiny, New-Hampshire-esque room to sit for 5 hours.
Anyone who is anyone in junior high will be saying to themselves right now: WAIT! Who's Hoagie-bread?
Answer: My principal. Who my mom, the author of There's Gotta be More than This, un-affectionately calls Douchenozzle.
And why a butt-load of books and the New-Hampshire-esque room?
Answer: I had an in-school suspension today! Fun, fun, and more fun. NOT!!
That's what you get when you don't do your science project! (said in sickly-sweet, Professor-Umbridge-esque voice)
After band, but before lunch, Hoagie-bread beckoned me to the office and told me about my suspension. That's how I found out.
Oh, and the New-Hampshire-esque part is because the room is shaped kinda like New Hampshire. Yeah, go find a map and take a look at it! That's a bit what the room looks like.
Fast forward to like 9:45 this morning. I'm sittin' in the room, havin' tons of un-fun, hopin' it'll get funner. Yes, funner. Tom says it's a word, so why can't it be?
Anyway. Hoagie-bread, who will forever on in this post be called HB, like the pencil, had said earlier that I could go home to get- I mean look for- my CPD packet. CPD's are chapter summaries used for book reports. So, I needed info for my reading project, which is a family tree due about a month ago, and I thought I could ask Mom. So, I had HB call up Mom, got my huge coat and walked home. Sadly, I couldn't find the CPD packet. But I did get info for my family tree!
Back to Room Hampshire. I need more info for my tree, so I text Mom. A big no-no, but I'm all aloney-on-my-owney in a teeny-weeny room. Why the hell not text Mom?
By the end of the suspension, I had ninety-five peoples' names down for the tree.
After a doctor's appointment, I continued work on my magnificent(ly screwed-up and huge) family tree. I taped two pieces of cardboard together and scratched out some guide-lines, then filled in the ninety-five names I had SO FAR. Afterward, Mom gave me more to put down. I added about thirty-six, giving me a grand-total of ONE HUNDRED THIRTY-ONE freaking people on my family tree! There are quite a few more left un-added, too, including three of my classmates. My family is screwed up.
Oh, and, this project gave me an interest in genealogy, which I have learned to spell correctly! Yay! But I doubt that Ancestry.com will accept one person having three parents. That's like some weird sci-fi novel waiting to happen. Oh, and the fact that I have no legal father! The law recognizes me as a sperm-donor baby!
I have as many half-siblings as my biological father. Three
I am, in a very screwed up way that includes marriage, cousins' father's sisters, and so much more screwiness, related to a classmate whose father worked with my uncle. They're both tattoo-artists!
I am related, through the same side of the family as before, related to another classmate who I used to be best friends with. In preschool.
I am also related to a third classmate. But not through the same side of the family! This time it's through a great-great aunt's marriage and grand-kids.
My uncle is dating his daughter-in-law, whose husband left her for her sister.
I just learned how to spell screwiness!
I have over 50 cousins.
If I had REALLY wanted to confuse my reading teacher, who I shall call 7up as a play on her last name, I could have included those three classmates AND my grandma's biological parents! 'Cause she was adopted.
7up is gonna be really surprised when she sees my family tree. I titled it: "My Large (and fairly messed-up) Family Tree (with 131 people) By RJ, 5th hour Reading
I included my last name, but for my own protection, I didn't include it. Tee hee!
As my BFF Ash would say, UNDERWEAR!

My recent life.
I went back to school.
I'm back to being the tuba player.
I'm too wimpy to carry the sousaphone, and the actual tuba in any kind of marching.
The band teacher has no idea what to do.
Wow, I'm just that awesome.
My birds are being excessively loud and I fed them less than fifteen minutes ago.
My life is kinda boring. I wish the birds would be quieter 'cause my fingers hurt from smacking the desk every time they start squawking.
Okay. About the whole tuba deal. I have no idea how I'm gonna march in the football game Friday after next if I can't carry any of the three tubas at school. I guess I'll have to bring the small tuba, which is currently in my parents' bedroom, to school to try and see if I can carry that one while marching. If I can't, well, I'm screwed. If it comes down to that, I get temporarily demoted to the suckish status of baritone player. Just for one night, though! Then I'm back up to tuba until I start high school next year! After that, I don't know.
Ooh, another interesting band thing in the near future. IMEA, the Illinois Music Educators' Association, has a festival every November, and in October there are auditions, and I have made the choice to audition! But only because of the small number of other tuba players who audition. Ten is the usual number of auditioners, but six to eight get picked. It's not that much of a challenge, people! I mean, it is, but still, I only have to really beat out two to four other people! The auditions are next week, the fifteenth. (I know I haven't told you yet, mom, but now you know!)
I have three parakeets now! The new one is green and I named him Archimedes. Fibonacci, Wycliffe, and Archimedes like to squawk a lot.
My brothers and mom are arguing. Not a rare thing here, with a one year old and a three year old and Mom trying to translate between them. Tommy is fake-crying and ignoring Mom. Danny is playing with a train or something.
Nothing much happened yesterday.
I'm bored. You probably are too. I guess I'll go now, especially since I need something to eat.

The reason for this is that I've been reading the "Brick House" webcomic, also called "Reasonably Clever". In that comic, there is no plot and the characters say hilariously weird things that just make you laugh even though they're just plain moronic. I say things like that all the time. Well, all the time within the past, like, month. Sooo, well, the general consensus is... I've been reading too many LEGO webcomics!!! So now I think I'm in a webcomic! Urgh, just thinking about what Mom'll say in response to this makes me want to, well, I don't know, finish my bottle of Mountain Dew? I think I will...
*the rest of my Mountain Dew later*
Ugh... too much fizzy nausea... This is why I prefer flattened pop...
Okay, now that I've finished my Mountain Dew, I'll be able to stay up ultra-late tonight and maybe get to sneak out to the living room and use the computer!! *evil laugh*
Some advice: DON'T USE BAD PUNS!!!!!
That was your ITTBM advice for this post!!! There might just be more in this post too if I think of any...
An interesting fact: Mountain Dew doesn't affect how tired my mind feels (lately, the caffeine has only been affecting my body, so when I'm mentally tired, I'm physically wide-awake. Ugh...)
And, finally, my latest food craving!!! No, I'm not pregnant!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, I currently want: A BAGEL!!! Maybe Mom'll make a bagel for me.
She said no for right now, but possibly later. :)
Ugh, need something to type about.
My mom got a new steam mop!!!
MEHP(game show wrong answer buzzer. Don't know how it's actually spelled, so I made up my own spelling!!)
How about... I still haven't gotten my bagel!!!!! That reminds me, I only just got the idea to give you...
LIIINK TIIIIIIME!!!!!!!!!(notice how I used the extra I's? Crafty, right?)
Well, can't think of anything else to type at you about...

- gotten a new bird (her name is Wycliffe)
- helped out at the local pet shop (I got fish out of tanks for people!!)
- gone to summer school (DISLIKE!!!!)
- eaten free lunches (I <3 the Thursday lunch!! Go PUDDING!!)
- and, finally, been bored.
That's a lot of stuff! Now, more stuff about that stuff.
1. I got a new parakeet for my birthday!! Her name is Wycliffe, and she gets along with Fibonacci really well. They tweet back and forth a lot, but sometimes they get into very loud arguments. Wycliffe was sitting on my finger the day I got her. :)
2. I helped out at the local pet shop. I cleaned cages, got fish out of tanks for people, and played with the owner's dog. As a reward, I got a free shirt!! :)
3. I went to summer school. Does NOT make sense, as I'm one of the smart kids. (Mom, you are NOT allowed to comment on tthis section) Total DISLIKE!! :(
4. I ate free lunches. Tuesday's lunch is pbj, granola bar, an apple, cookies, and apple juice; Wednesday's lunch is a butter and ham sandwich, canned pear halves, a granola bar, m&m's, and apple juice; and Thursday's lunch is pbj, butterscotch pudding, granola bar, carrots, and apple juice. :)
5. I have been BORED. As usual. :(
Well, that's my life so far this summer!
As for the future, I'm going on vacation!!! July 18-22, 5 days, 4 nights, MALL OF AMERICA!!!!! 22 days left!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
I'm ALSO planning to make cake and get ice cream for my mom's birthday. :)
Gotta go now, so see ya later homies! (?)
Friday, May 20, 2011
Anyway, an update on my life.
My birthday is in 10 DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will turn 13 in TEN DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
More stuff now.
I <3 raw spaghetti!!
Sousaphones are painful to carry when you're small and weak!!
Baritones are TINY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You must always KNOW what's for lunch at school. Relying on your nose doesn't really do much except generalize.
I can read one book in a day! Not new. Darn...
Swear words are common in play scripts.
Thank Google It's Friday!
Google is God now. Yay!!! All the people of the world must worship GOOGLE!!!!!!!!!
I've run out of words.......

How many people read my blog?
Comment if you have read at least two posts. Counting this one, of course. But that DOESN'T count if you read another post just to make me happy. That makes me angry. So, just to make sure, when you comment you have to summarize another post from the blog.
That's the challenge. But Mom, you don't have to do this because I know you always read my blog. Also, yes, I got your picture message Mom. It's very cute.
Enough of the one-sided conversations, I'm bored.
Ugh, I wish people would stop sending me requests on Facebook! It's getting soooooooooo annoying!!! I have nothing else to, um, type about. So I guess that makes it link time.
Just an interesting bit of news about pizza.
And, ISAT's are coming up... GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!! Further proof that ITTBM is a year old.
Uh, sorry Mom, but I have nothing else to type about.
Sunday, February 6, 2011
Now, I'll (unwillingly) talk about the Super-Stupid-Bowl. Last year's SuperStupidBowl post was very long and rambling, so I'll just give some statistics.
Teams: Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Green Bay Packers
Date: TODAY!!!!!!!! (February 6th, 2011)
Number: XLV / 45
Wikipedia Link: StupidBowl-XLV
Now for Puppy Bowl discussion. Statistic time!!!!!
Teams: No pre-defined teams
Date: TODAY!!!!!!!! (February 6th, 2011)
Number: VII / 7
That's a lot of statistical facts!!! Now, a recipe for guacamole.
Yes, that was random, and I do dislike guacamole, but I had to do it for all you tailgaters out there. I also know that nobody reads this blog except my mom.
Uh, I have to go now.
Monday, January 17, 2011
NO telling where you live
NO using peoples' real names unless you are talking about celebrities or other well-known people
NO other stuff that would make you or others unsafe
That's my new policy!!
Now, I'm off to advertise!!! SO... To keep you entertained, I guess it's................ LINK TIME!!!!!!!!!!!
A blog that I LOVE, it's very funny.
Sunday, January 9, 2011
Okay, so I guess, since so many holidays have passed, I should say...
HAPPY LABOR DAY-HALLOWEEN-THANKSGIVING-BLACK FRIDAY-HANUKKAH-CHRISTMAS-NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, that's a LOT of holidays!!
Ugh, no one reads my blog! I think I should advertise on Facebook!! I've been running this thing for nearly a year and only my mom reads it!!
You know what's awesome? BiC AI mechanical pencils!! I just bought two at the grocery store and they ROCK!!! They have a three-way lead advance system, and Japanese erasers! JAPANESE ERASERS!!!!!!!!! And French leads!! From FRANCE!!!!!!!!!! Okay, I'm getting WAY too excited, but how can't I?! Okay, the three-way lead advance system works by giving more lead when you click, shake, or write with the pencil; the Japanese erasers are 1.5mm in diameter, and the French lead is average mechanical pencil lead. But the pencils are AWESOME!!!!!!!!
-yaaaaaaaaawn- An hour and a half till bedtime...
What should I do now?!
A link to the Fibonacci sequence, the namesake of my parakeet, Fibonacci.
Random conversation time!!!
Random Creepy Voice(RCV): Hello...
Me: Who are you?!
Me: Good riddance, ya loony!!!
THAT was random.....
