Do say something funny so she can laugh! July 10, 2009Posted by bookbutterfly in blogs and blogging, books, friends, holidays, movies, quizzes, school and other academic stuff, websites, writings.

I pulled this off from Goodreads, though the original quote is “Now, do say something funny so she can admire!” It’s from River Secrets, and as most of you probably already know, I’m reading it right now, but I haven’t yet got to the part where that quote is but it just randomly stuck in my head because it fits so well with what I want to say.
First of all, I have been swamped (and I know I haven’t used that word sparingly, but I really, honestly do mean that this time) with work, and really cannot keep this up on a regular twice or three times a week basis. But also, I’m just a bit stressed at the moment. Well, actually, quite stressed.
I won’t go into details, but allow it to suffice to say that I’m in need of a break which I cannot get ahold of, and I feel like I’m just going up and down with everything.
And I feel guilty. I shouldn’t complain. It’s summer. I’m on vacation. And despite all the work I’ve had to do, I’ve had some of my own share of fun. I’ve been watching a LOT of movies. I’ve been staying up reading. I’ve made it a habit to stay up so late that two in the morning is quite early for me now. Especially after this week I stayed up until five twice.
And why am I complaining? I have good movies, good books, good websites, good blogs to read (which I haven’t lately; I have four hundred fifty unread items on Google Reader, but most of it is probably because I subscribe to three different Harry Potter fan sites, and you know how much buzz there is right now. Plus, I have so many of those interviews and fun Harry Potter stuff, so it’s still counted as unread. I don’t just zip through it and really take it in, you know.), writing that I want to do (including some quizzes and reviews! Funness!) and…good friends! So, that’s why I’m turning to you guys. Since I haven’t seen a single friend since school got out (except for a couple friends from my old school who are sisters that I got to talk to for a bit after Mass one day because they also happened to attend church at the same time), I’m asking you guys for a bit of help. This should be easy though.
As the title of this post states, I want something amusing. Funny. They could be articles, videos, songs, something Harry Potter related would be nice… You can e-mail them, or post them right here.
Or you can comment with funny questions for my FAQ (or FAQTWNRABSB, as I actually call it) on Butterfly Forest. Check it out here.
Or, if you’d like, you can guest blog on here. You can blog about anything. You can talk about potatoes. You can talk about how you began to collect slinky toys. I don’t really care what you blog about as long as it’s appropriate and clean, and contains more than one word and isn’t the length of a novel. Oh yes, and no posting your own writing…not that I’m against that, this blog just doesn’t seem like the right place to do that sort of thing. But you can talk about your own writing, or about writing in general. Honestly, I really don’t care about the topic except for those two…exceptions. 😛 😉
And WordPress changed their smilies!! Aw…I really miss the old ones. They remind me of LRRH. I miss LRRH, too. 😦
QUIZ!!!!! October 26, 2008Posted by bookbutterfly in birthdays, quizzes.
I made a quiz! So happy! I kept getting friends making quizzes of how well they know themselves, that i though it was about time I made one of myself. Only difference between me and my friends is…that I posted it on my blog! And I want my online friends (you guys) to take it, s’il vous plait? It’s right here, just scroll below my Jango jukebox, and click “Take the Quiz!” Let me know what percentage you guys got. I’m curious to find out! 😛
Edit: I just want to take the time to say happy birthday to the LRRHers whose bdays I missed.
HOPE YOU HAD A FANTABULOUS DAY, HOHO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Sept. 17)
FELIZ CUMPLEAÑOS, ENNALEE!!!!!!!!!! (Sept. 22)
JOYEUX ANNIVERSAIRE, REBECCA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Sept. 30)
HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, CELLY!!!!!!! (Oct. 4)
Even if you guys never read this, I still want to honor your special days! 😀
Edit 2: I’m going to keep updating the quiz scoreboard here by stating who is currently in the lead, which is still Delaney with an awesome score of 70%! Give it up for Fauny! w00t! w00t! 😀
You’re Like: Audrey Hepburn
Stylish, sophisticated, subdued and always impeccable, both in dress and demeanor, that’s Audrey and that’s you, too. The actress won people over with her onscreen skills and her off-screen charity work helping children in need. She’s the ultimate example of someone who is beautiful inside and out.
Want to rent some films starring Audrey? Check out Roman Holiday, Sabrina, My Fair Lady or Funny Face. Modern-day actresses you have a lot in common with are Natalie Portman, Joy Bryant and Penelope Cruz.
w00t! Audrey Hepburn is my favorite actress of all-time! I’ve seen most all of her movies. I’ve taken quizzes like this before, and I always get her. My mom always says I sorta have the same little chin as she does; Audrey is also my mom’s favorite actress, that she also thought about naming me Audrey! I’m so happy I got Audrey!!!!!!! 😀 *happy dance*
[edit: the quiz can be taken here.]

Oof, sorry I haven’t been on in forever! In case there are any misgivings against me (which I don’t think there are, knowing you guys, but like I said, just in case), I would just like to clear things up and say that I haven’t been on the computer (ie: Blogger, LRRH) in four days, and I was unable to check anything due to crazy stuff and HW. So sorry, sorry, sorry again! I also have finals coming up, so I’ll probably diappear yet again. I’ll give a shot at scheduled posting.
BTW, although the last post was about my b-day and I had that up forever was totally on accident. I meant to post more on MM after my b-day, but I couldn’t use the computer after that. Even though it may have looked like I was trying to spread the news about my b-day (which I was not at all trying to), it was a complete accident. I only posted that b/c the info on it was funny and I thought that the perfect day to post it would be my b-day. So I’m really sorry about that again. I have to check out y’all’s blogs. *goes off to do so* 😉
