Grar! And Other Angry Noises!

Erg, I have to type this dumb thing AGAIN because the Internet decided to be retarded and not publish my post and appear as "This page cannot be displayed". So I told the Internet where it could go and what exactly it could do with it's undisplayed pages in rather rude terms.


I got back from King's Fest and Mar-Lu-Ridge, and also finished helping out with Hampstead's community Bible School at the end of the month. Camp and Bible school were within two weeks, so that meant no getting up at the crack of noon for Amanda! But it was worth it; I had a lot of fun. There's not a whole lot to tell, except at camp, I was the ONLY high schooler in our group, which amounted to a whopping total of seven kids. I was the only one out of last year's group (I did kick-ass archery camp for the second year in a row, woot!), which was 12 kids that said they would come back the next year and I was the only one that actually followed through. AND, I was the only other girl.

I managed to (barely) survive amongst of other middle-schoolers/former elem. schoolers (kill), but believe me, my sanity, which is NOT something to be reckoned with, was on the very edge afterwards. I had fun, activity-wise, but MAN, I was done with the kids, except for one, maybe two or three. RAWRG!!!! Believe me, when backed into a corner, the she-beast emerges, fighting. At one point, I threatened one by saying that if he didn't shut up, I would beat him and throw him down the mountain and then repent for my violence in the chapel (It's a Christian camp, muah). And believe me, I was seconded! This kid was SO ANNOYING!!!!!! See, this is why I only babysit my next-door neighbor, who's ten, I think, and my cousins. Cos all the others are pretty muched deathwished. And most of my violent tendencies come out when I'm around smaller, annoying children. I like quiet, well-behaved children. In other words, the non-existant kind.

So in short, child psychologists have a wasted career. Just cuz you have a PhD and a nice fancy certificate, doesn't mean you know the minds of dumb children and psycho teenagers. To me, your "practiced skills" mean precisely dick.

Speaking of stupid children, my friend's mother, who does crafts every year for Bible school says that there are 1st and 2nd graders that still write their letters backwards. I FIND THIS VERY DISTURBING, SHOCKING, AND APPALLING!!! WHAT are teachers teaching? Or not teaching??? Maybe first graders can get away with it, but SECOND GRADERS???!!!??? Or being the open-minded person that I am, maybe there are more dyslexic children than I thought. Whatever.

I can't believe it's friggin' August already. Where does the summer go?? Actually, I'm kinda excited to go back to school. and OUR POOL IS GOING UP THIS MONTH!!!! Jeez, it only took all summer!!!!!!!!! We finnaly got the money from the settlement on the house, so HAPPY JOY FUN YAY!!

On another happier note, I have discovered, along with my good friends Shannon and Jake, THE CRIMSON ROOM!!!! This game, along with Viridian Room, White Chamber, and Blue Chamber, is frustrating, infuriating, and JUST PLAIN ADDICTING!!! They make you think and use logic, but in a good way! OMG, they're sooooo fun, check them out at Yeah.

Rating, like anyone cares: 8/10

Also, check out flash artist, game-creater AND fellow Blogger Lut at He's got some cool stuff going on. If you haven't played Toom of Doom, also featured at Albino, I suggest you check it out. He is also the creater of the Darkness series, with the third one coming out shortly! (I talked to him recently and he said he's about halfway through it.) It has a surprise factor, so turn the volume up for the full effect. However, it is NOT reminiscent of the Grudge, unless you scare really easily. I played this game at 10:30 PM by myself in my room and wasn't scared, and those who know me know that I practically jump at my own shadow. So if you like being spooked, minus the wetting yourself, this game is off the heazy. Even if you don't, it's still off the heazy anyway.

Rating: 9.5/10

Yeah, so rock out and party hard, or whatever.

P.S. I only rate flash games, not video games. The only video game I have that I play the crap out of is Pokemon Yellow, so there.

P.P.S. I'm expreimenting with new layouts, so...yeah. Thought you should know.
