To Treat or Not to Treat?

That's the sucky question.

I enjoy trick or treating. But there comes a time when OTHER people think that it's inappropriate for you to continue trick or treating because you're "too old".
I personally believe that that is a myth perpetuated by the lazy people that don't want to buy enough candy for the entire neighborhood.

Halloween is (just about) tomorrow, and I'm conflicted.
Do I go out and beg strangers for candy while pretending to be a fictional character, or do I do the "adult" thing and hand out candy to the greedy little children?

Now, I can understand where some people are coming from. There comes a point in time when certain people just need to stop. Imagine looking through your peephole expecting some cute little costumes... and instead feasting your eyes upon this:"Quick honey, get the gun, I'll hide the children."


Now imagine looking through the same peephole, after firing a few warning shots at the previous visitors, and seeing this:
Nowhere NEAR as bad, right?
... Right.

So what do I do? Do I revel in my last Halloween as an "adolescent"? Throw caution to the wind, and blow chunks from too much candy?
Or do I sit by the door, weeping over the fact that instead of gathering candied goodness from my neighbors, I'm giving a bowl of it away to selfish kids?
In my spiteful, jealous nature I could easily give only one piece to the kids.
Or I could just give away the little flashlights we have, and save the candy for myself.
But would that be fair?
Would I end up like this?I've always wanted a tan. It could work for me.

What do YOU think I should do? To treat, or not to treat?
or beat up kids at my door and steal their candy? <------ I like that one. You decide! Vote in my poll in the sidebar!

Did You Know...?

Did you know that people who have had ties between the left and right side of their brains severed can only blindly name objects placed into their right hand?

Say you blindfold said person and put a fork in their left hand. They will have NO CLUE what it is.
I would start having fun with it.

"Can you tell me what is in your left hand?"
"Nothing? Okay, okay... do you know what you're touching now with that same hand?"

"Still nothing? Well yeah, a pencil. But I said in your left hand. Well... that sucks. Whatever, put everything in your right hand and get to crafting. Only two months until Christmas, and those poorly made paper ornaments won't make themselves!"

Did I forget to mention I own a factory of crappy paper ornament-making slaves?
Huh, thought I told you guys.
Eh, hindsight is 20/20.

Psychology Mumbo Jumbo

Today my 8 week psychology course opened up online.
I was dreading this day.
"Oh no, ANOTHER class."

It's really not that bad. 13 chapters, each one has a quiz. A few of them have homework assignments. One final exam.
She gives us all of the assignments up front so that we can work at our own pace. I LOVE when teachers do that. I'm reading chapter 1 right now, and plan on doing the quiz later tonight. If I do 4 chapters a week, it'll only take me about 3 weeks to finish all of the quizzes and homework.
That'll leave me with the rest of term to study my other classes and prepare myself for the final.

Apparently I pulled a solid B for my journalism midterm. Now I have a B+ in the class. I'm hoping that future assignments will pull me back up.
I got an A on my History midterm, so that's awesome.
No word yet on Anthropology, but I'm assuming a B just like in journalism.

Next on my agenda is preparing my Anthropology ethnography for the end of term, finishing up a quick journalism assignment, and highlighting the snot out of my psychology book.I have a pack of colored highlighters and an urge to ace this class... it's going to be epic.

My Weekend in General

My Saturday was spent doing fun things, since Sunday was supposed to be study day.

First we decorated the outside of the house. It's not finished yet, so I'm not going to show you!

I felt that we didn't have enough decorations, so my mom and I went to Walmart, and then Target, and then Party City.
At Walmart, we couldn't find any decorations. I did buy something for my room, though...Oh yeah, you betcha. I bought another New Moon poster. I was torn between that one, and one that was just Edward. I realized afterward that I did something STUPID.
I had been DYING for THIS poster:But of course, I was over-eager. I jumped the gun. Now I don't get the Cullens on my wall.

At Target, I bought Tiffany a little present...I've never been the type to dress up my animals, but you know what?
Every cat in the world deserves a chicken hat. And it's a crime if they can't have one.
But it also makes your cat develop a hatred for you.
You win some, you lose some. CAT IN A CHICKEN HAT = WORTH IT!

After our Halloween shopping, we went to see Law Abiding Citizen.I liked the movie a lot, but the ending was a let down for me.
You'll have to see it to understand.

The last thing I did was add a little more henna to my arm. Hi, I'm Lee. I'm an addict.And that was it... that was my weekend.
Pretty dull, eh?
By the by, where'd all the commenters go? It's WAY too quiet around here. I used to average 10 a post! Here, I'll coax you guys back. Here's a picture of Tiffany the day we got her (6 weeks old)Awww, right? Now COME BACK! (Plus, vote for tiffany HERE)

Because I was webcam chatting with a friend, I couldn't use the cam to take a current picture. So, I took it upon myself to come up with a solution.

This Weekend

... will be spent sleeping and studying.
I've got one last midterm on Monday.

I haven't really slept at all this week, because I've had to get up so early for school and work.

The good news is that Drew's decided to go to college.
Less "decided" and more "was me".
I realized by watching so many people do it just how easy to is to go to college for cheap.
So I told him that if he didn't go, I would kill him.

He enrolled, and next week he's going to get everything sorted out with school and everything.
Gears are finally grinding, lives are finally changing for the good.
And that's how my week will end.

They've put my grandmother into a nursing home. They didn't do ANY surgery, so we're furious. Over a month in the hospital, and they fixed NOTHING. All they did was suck money out of her insurance for physical therapy.
So we might be suing them.

I'll leave you guys with a funny quote I just read, hope you have a great weekend:

Until one gains the credentials to be regarded as a professional, a person who has sex for money is called an "amateurstitute."

Heh heh, Suckers...

You know, all of us Twilight fans are being suckered by Summit.
Because the New Moon DVD has already been made, packaged, and shipped to the stores.
How do I know?
My friend Seth works at Toys R Us, and he had his hands on 15,000 copies of New Moon yesterday.

So then, dear production company... why does it take FOR. FREAKING. EVER. for you to come out with the DVD, when it's SITTING IN A WAREHOUSE?
I call shenanigans.
I tried to bribe my friend into stealing one to no avail.
Not FAIR. I want to touch New Moon!
But, I do get to see it before (almost) everyone else. My dad's friend does movie previews, where he gives tickets to certain people to come and give their opinion. He had remembered that I wanted to see New Moon, and when he got tickets he asked my dad if I'd like to go.
So, I'll be seeing New Moon on November 18th.
Sure, it's only two days early. But... it's still two days early. AWESOME.
I would invite you all... but I only have two tickets, and if all of you got to come, it wouldn't be as special for me! So neener.

Top Hats

Today in History, I zoned out. A lot.
You know, it happens.
But while I zoned out, I doodled. A lot.

I decided to share with all of you the doodles that I created.Can't see it? That's fine. I split it up into chunks for you. I even took the liberty of coloring it in! Except the first one. I'm lazy like that.Turtles! Yes, the turtle is wearing a top hat. And a bow tie. This is what started it all... the loss of my mind.Bird with a top hat, and a monocle. Oh, and don't forget the cane. "Tweet tweet good sir". Aw, he's a gentleman.
Plus a dolphin with a top hat, holding a knife. Why the knife? I have no clue. Just one of those things.A tree with a noose... and a top hat. I have to say, I'm rather proud of the tree.
Grapes... wearing a top hat.A pencil wearing a top hat. And of course, a top hat wearing a top hat. Who could resist?

Now I know this makes me look crazy, but this is just a small look into my strange mind. But this embodies me so perfectly. Everything has to have a top hat, because top hats make everything classy!
In honor of this odd doodling session, I created a few t-shirts that you can buy with my doodles and my new saying.It looks better on the shirt, trust me.
You can purchase it by following this link:
I'm going to hold a contest soon involving pictures of people in my shirt.
Because I want people to buy it, and getting something free is good incentive.
It'll be hand-chosen by me, and yes, worth more than the shirt. (It'd be stupid if it wasn't).
By the way, the cheapest shirt happens to be this one:
So you can be snazzy, and not spend loads!

Go ahead, buy one. Or three. Or a thousand! You know you want to.

I Should Do This For a Living

I'm not too shabby with the henna tube.
Sure, it took me 2 hours.
But I'm still not too shabby.
This is what it looked like right after I put it on, while the ink was soaking into my skin:Here it was the next morning, when I woke up and scraped off the dried henna paste:It'll stay on for about three weeks. They gave me enough for 30 tattoos. The dye only lasts for four weeks... so looks like I'm going to be covered in tattoos soon.
I have to save enough to give Drew a tattoo when he comes over. I really want to do it on someone else!

A few people noticed it at work. They all thought it was cool, so it felt worth it.
I like looking at it. It's actually really intricate across my wrist. There's little suns among the ruffles.
Once I run out, I'll just buy a refill kit.
It's a great way to kill time, and do something a little funky.

If YOU want to experiment with the art of henna, visit
They shipped ROCKET fast, for a good price. And the instructions are ridiculously easy to follow.
Honestly, it would be something fun to do with your kids. It's much more personal than a normal temporary tattoo. It actually stains your skin. Plus it's non-toxic since it's completely natural. They even make a kit specifically for kids.
Too bad I didn't look into doing a blog review for them. Would've been neat to see if they'd let me test it. Oh well! At least I've got a kit for myself!

Midterms 2009

Well, today was the dreaded midterm day.
And honestly... I don't think I did too bad.

I probably messed up some on the Anthropology, I probably left out a little information on history.

But overall, I'm not really sweating it. It wasn't that bad.

I've got one more midterm on Monday for Journalism. I'm going to study over the weekend, and hopefully that one will go just as smoothly as these.
How much do you want to bet I completely failed my midterms so I spend the rest of the semester being emo?

I really hope not.

I'm at work right now. Workin' hard, hardly workin'.

It's nice to keep busy. Sometimes my fear and paranoia come back, so being able to keep my mind off of it really is a blessing.

Plus the people I work with are really funny.

For lunch I bought a salad from the refridgerator in the snack bar. It's like I can't learn my damn lesson. I know the food there is mediocre at best, and yet I still spend $5 on it. I could walk to the burger bar and get a burger, fries and a drink for the same cost.

You would think the pre-packed food would be cheaper than the stuff that's made fresh, but no.

I wrote most of this post at work. Now I'm home. My henna kit came today. You have to let the dye set up for 2 hours before you can use it. I put the stencils on my skin. I'm going to do the stuff at 10:45, and then wrap it in toilet paper once it dries, and then go to bed. I'll show you what I do tomorrow. (If it even comes out right).
I should go to sleep now. Hope ya'll had a good day.
Oh and for the record, I love how none of you noticed that my pictures recently are oooold. I've just been randomly grabbing pictures from old posts to see if you'd notice.

Obviously no one did.

Found It!

I searched far and wide for a good deal on henna.
I wanted some that came with stencils... I really have no artistic ability.
I ignored the first place I found... it seemed like it really didn't come with enough stuff.

I spent two hours scouring through websites. I eventually just came back to the first place.
The company is Earth Henna, and I got the original kit.
It was the cheapest and came with the most things.
If I want to, I can buy refills for everything at some point.

I really like Henna. When I turn 18, my biological dad said he'd take me to get a tattoo. I have no idea why I want one, but I do. Probably a fairy or something girly. Maybe even something religious.
But right now I want to mess around with Henna. It stays on for 3 weeks. The henna I got last saturday is still there. It's faded now, but that's because I only left it on for an hour instead of 3.
I always like doing things out of the ordinary. So if I show up to school with my hand completely covered in henna, it'll be fun for me.
I wish I was artistic enough to do a really intricate pattern, but maybe I can find someone that will.

My dad is coming over tonight, and then the rest of the weekend will be devoted to studying for my midterms. I really hope I do well. I'm mostly worried about history.
Wish me luck!

I'm looking all over Vegas to try and find a place that sells a henna kit.
I know I can buy them online, but I wanted to buy one in person.

You'd think SOMEONE would sell it. I tried India stores, psychic stores, even those cigarette shops. Nothing.

I can't even find any online. It's driving me insane.
So, I ask you... anyone know where to get some good henna kits?
