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. 😦
Y’all blog too much. I can’t keep up. April 15, 2009Posted by bookbutterfly in blogs and blogging, music, websites.
Maybe it is sort of my fault for not checking Google Reader in months. And then for a few days.
But when I came back from my “disappearance”, I kind of thought I’d get like seven hundred new stuff, and it was just five hundred. That’s all. Plus, after cutting off the hundred something posts from MuggleNet, another hundred from Leaky Cauldron, and a few more from HPANA (yes, I subscribe to them all), it got narrowed down to about…eh, three hundred. Or two.
And I didn’t check for some time, and there were about one hundred seventy left. Geez Louise, how much do you guys blog and post??? Ay chico. I’m still working on reading them all, but the going is a bit slow since so many of your posts are eye-catching and I just have to stop and read them.
I’m not complaining. I want to thank you all. I still have one hundred thirty-three “items” (as Google Reader calls them) to read through, and I haven’t gotten through my beloved Harry Potter fan sites yet as of right now, being nine fifty-four prime meridian Pacific time.
As a side note, I don’t know if you guys noticed, but I’m not writing numbers anymore. It bothers me to see numbers, and somehow I feel like if I really want that degree in English, I have to start focusing on writing a lot, and that includes numbers. Weird, I know, but I can’t stand initials anymore either (note the “prime meridian”…but not the HPANA part. Okay, okay, so I should have said Harry Potter Automatic News Aggregator, but I just had to look up to see just now what the full title of the site was called. I never can remember the “Automatic” part.)
Sorry for the boring post. I can’t beat you guys at writing amazing posts. Plus, I have blogger’s block at the moment. Grr. The only cool thing I can talk about right now is that I bought three songs from iTunes yesterday and I hate Apple for marking up Carrie Underwood and Colbie Caillat and Jason Mraz’s “Lucky” (I bought the latter song anyway though, especially since I first heard it from a photo slide celebrating my cousin’s engagement. She’s getting married next week. Yay! Everyone’s getting married these days…). I also bought Emily West’s “Rocks In Your Shoes” (a great song if you ever feel like you’re never going to accomplish anything), and Tim Myers and Lindsey Ray’s “Brand New Day”, which I first heard in a Target commerical, haha! (I just noticed I bought two duets. Awesomeness.) I’m including videos from Youtube (I just figured out how to do that, and it’s so cool!!!! 😀 ) for all the songs here so you guys can all obsess over them like I am at the moment. 😉
SurveyMonkey See, SurveyMonkey Do! January 9, 2009Posted by bookbutterfly in blogs and blogging, survey, websites.
I made an amazing discovery yesterday. How did I find it? Google suggestions, actually. I was looking up PollDaddy surveys, and lo and behold was SurveyMonkey. I love it (except for the fact you have to pay if you want to make a survey with more than 10 questions. Grr)!!! 😀 Anyway, I was wondering if you guys could do me a GINORMOUS favor. I made two surveys, one on Celebration of Blogs, and one of this blog. I will be making another one later for Butterfly Forest (once I get more reviews up there), but in the meantime, y’all can take this.
Have fun, y’all. These are perfectly anonymous, so don’t worry about being honest. I’d rather you all be HONEST. Really honest. No lying to BB now. 😀
♥Lots of Love and MOLD,
