Weird dreams and bad vodka


I tell you -- sometimes I think my mind drinks without me knowing. Do humans have the same suspicious things all the time?

I've been having these weird dreams. Yesterday's dream was that I was teaching at a public school... but I was half horse. I mean, in the dream, I KNEW I was half horse, but you saw me and I was normal, you know --- HUMAN? but I swear, I was half horse. Anyway, in the dream, I ran (like when you're a kid and you run as if you were ridding a horse?) from my house to my sister's job (because I was going to give her cake --- ) and then I RAN back to the school I was teaching at -- all this while listening to the KLAQ morning show, okay? So here I am, running (because as I've said, I was HALF horse) and I get to the school and my class has to sing in a baseball stadium a song by the Foo Fighters I've never heard of. But get this: they're playing AIR INSTRUMENTS that HAVE SOUND. And then I take a look at the kids -- yeah, they're the kids from "School of Rock", okay?

I tell you --- sometimes...

At school they're going to teach us how to use the new system. Now, instead of giving Gloria the grades, we'll just upload them into the computer. Here's the dealbreaker (for me): the computers that we are going to use for this procedure? Only two... FOR THE ENTIRE SCHOOL. And they're both in the little cramped room at Control escolar, I mean... How f-ed up is that? So they're going to teach us how to use it because apparently we're to dumb to figure it out. We have to learn all these new codes.

I need to go to the store. Mikuni needs new sand for her box. It's all full of poop and pee.

Mikuni, BTW is nuts.

I have finished the VIDDHEA story! At LAST! Cover and all -- I LOVE it. I don't care what anyone else says, I loooove how this story went out. Now, I shall submit it to a lit. contest here in Mexico in hopes to win (if not the grand prize, at least the recognition of someone)

Michael Jackson Dies



Michael Jackson dies after being rushed to L.A. hospital

Aidin Vaziri, Chronicle Pop Music Critic
Friday, June 26, 2009

(06-25) 15:54 PDT DAY: Thursday -- Michael Jackson, the troubled recording artist who covered himself in sequins and appointed himself "King of Pop," died in Los Angeles today. He was 50. The cause was cardiac arrest, according law enforcement sources.

American pop star Michael Jackson waves to photographers ...Michael Jackson performs on stage during his "BAD" concer...Singer Michael Jackson smiles in 1983 in London.

According to wire reports, the singer was unresponsive when paramedics arrived at the Bel Air home he was renting while rehearsing for a series of 50 sold-out shows at London's O2 Arena beginning next month and continuing into 2010.

The concerts, financed by a pair of billionaires, were planned as a way of reviving his career. Those close to the singer hoped it would serve as a trial run for a lengthy world tour, new album, Michael Jackson museum and Las Vegas stage show, according to news reports.

Jackson, however, had publicly protested that he was not physically ready for shows, which sold out almost instantly. The opening dates had already been pushed back.

Earlier this month, he reportedly told a group of fans outside his Burbank rehearsal studio, "I'm really angry with them booking me up to do 50 shows. I only wanted to do 10, and take the tour around the world to other cities, not 50 in one place. I went to bed knowing I sold 10 dates and woke up with the news I was booked to do 50."

Jackson started singing at the age of eight as a member of the Jackson 5, the family band that included his brothers Jermaine, Jackie, Tito and Marlon. It was the start of a long and turbulent career that peaked with the release of 1982's "Thriller," which holds the title of the best-selling album of all time.

So Long, Miss Farrah...

Farrah Fawcett dies at 62; actress rose above 'Charlie's Angels'

By Valerie J. Nelson
10:12 AM PDT, June 25, 2009
Farrah Fawcett, who soared to fame as a national sex symbol in the late 1970s on television's campy "Charlie's Angels" and in a swimsuit poster that showcased her feathery mane and made her a generation's favorite pinup, died today. She was 62.

Fawcett, whose celebrity overshadowed her ability as a serious actress, was diagnosed with a rare anal cancer in 2006, died about 9:30 a.m. at St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica, said Paul Bloch, her publicist.

Three months after she was declared cancer-free in 2007, doctors at UCLA Medical Center told her the cancer had returned, spreading to her liver, and she repeatedly sought experimental treatment in Germany.

Bluebird's Classroom: A Good Parenting Lesson


I got this from Bluebird's Classroom I thought you should give it a read...

A Good Parent Lesson
Teachers and support staff had to report to school today for some reason only known by the individuals who create our yearly calendar. If that isn't bad enough, it was decided that we would also report tomorrow to make up the extra snow day that we used this year. The kids, however, are enjoying their summer break and were no where to be seen.

So, most of us spent the day packing up our rooms. We empty bookshelves, go through file cabinets, pack up odds and ends, and then label everything with our name and room number. The reasoning behind this is that our rooms are completely emptied during the summer while the custodial staff strips and waxes the floors, and touches up the paint. The key thing is to leave a map of how you want your room set up so that you don't have to struggle as much getting it together in late July when we show up to get the new year started.

I went to drop some items in some teacher mailboxes and cruised by guidance to see how the Guidance Goddess was doing. This is a crazy time of year for her, what with moving files on up to the high school, updating records, enrolling for summer school, and so on. I was kind of curious as to how many of my students had already enrolled for summer school (we had recommended about ten).

"So, how's summer school going?" I asked her.

"Really well," she said. "We have more registered today than we had all of last summer."

"That's pretty good. Mind if I see how many of mine have signed up?" I asked her.

"Of course not," she said as she handed me the list. "By the way, Gawky Girl was one of yours, right?"

Oh yeah, she was one of mine. She was one of the youngest kids on the team but was also one of the tallest. She was also smart as all get out, but did absolutely no work whatsoever, and consequently managed to fail seventh grade. This from a kid who should have been on the A B honor roll if she tried.

"Well, she's signed up," said Guidance Goddess. "You won't believe what her mom did, however."

"What did she do?" I asked. I had seen a few moms and their children marching grimfaced to the guidance office to register for summer school. You can bet that it wasn't a pleasant experience for either of them.

The Guidance Goddess continued. "I know the family and know that they are on fee waivers, so they wouldn't have to pay for summer school. So, I was reaching for the fee waiver list and mom told me to hold it right there. She wasn't going to utilize the fee waiver. She made Gawky Girl pay for it out of her birthday money."

"Seriously?" I asked. Accountability? Finally?

"Seriously," Guidance Goddess answered. "Gawky Girl was not happy, but mom insisted. She said maybe she'd learn to value her education if she actually had to pay for it."

Maybe the best birthday present this mom gave her daughter was the lesson that there are consequences to behavior. And sometimes those consequences hurt us in the wallet.

Way to go mom!

Rambling


Well, the TOEFL test was taken last Saturday... all those days of constant bickering about how they're supposed to write a good TOEFL, and how they are supposed to answer the questions correctly served their purpose and I am proud to announce that the 2009 class of English IX PASSED, with flying colors!

So --- summer's here and I was wondering what can I do to spend time without spending money (because I don't have any?)

I could clean my room. But that's like Mission Impossible. Might as well call in Tom Cruise to do it and see if he doesn't cry three days after. And yes, I do have a room. I am a civilized panda, not some schmuck panda who still lives in a cave, o though sometimes I wonder if the panda who lives in the cave isn't cleaner than me... Mikuni did it!!!

I could go out to the park. But that's like playing Russian Roulette right now. If I don't get shot, I'll probably get mugged. (O though, the thought of having the all-mexican burrito holiday there is quite tempting)

I could go out drinking... but unless I have someone who pays for my drinks.

Movies I wanna watch:
- Star Treck (IMAX)
- Up
- ... that's about it... Ooooh! The Harry Potter movie when it comes out!

I feel like having a Sonic Burger... and a cherry limenade.

I have gotten v. good reviews for my writing. Maybe I can do that -- write.

I just hope I'm not too lazy to drag my ass around and say stuff like... "but it's three in the afternooooon... who writes at three?!"

I sooooo know myself.

Of course, I'll plunder some money to go to the coffee shop! That's even a stubborn question!!

Inspirational Kittens

It's Friday -- it's kind of a chilling day. And today, since I have nothing else to do but to STUDY and I don't wanna do that, I took a surfing around the web and found THE cutest thing in the whole wide world (and if a panda says so, then it must be true):
KITTENS!
So, do enjoy the kitty-words of wisdom... and use them well... may the kitty force be with you, children, always.
Me? I'm just gonna... hang around...

Grey's Anatomy and this Panda says NO!

It has come to this panda's attention that there is a matter that is of utter importance. Heck! The stability of the free world depends on it! And that is the season finale of Grey's Anatomy.

Grey's Anatomy: Goodbye, Gizzie?
Tuesday, June 02, 2009

E! Online reports that "multiple sources" have confirmed the oft-mentioned George-will-die-Izzie-will-live hypothesis on Grey's Anatomy, firming up beliefs that TR Knight, who plays George O'Malley, is indeed on his way out of Seattle Grace. His character, misshapen after an almost-fatal accident, flat-lined just when the ABC medical drama's fifth season came to a close. The 36-year-old reportedly wanted off Grey's for the longest time.

There has been too much friction between Knight and Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes, adds E! Online. He asked to be left out of his contract late last year after growing frustrated that with his character's lack of solid storyline and screen time. Fans of George all noticed the lack of screen-time for O'Malley.

"He hates her, and she hates him," a source says.

Rhimes has denied these reports, but she is known to toy with the lines of truth when it comes to these things.

The hypothesis, which posits Izzie (Katherine Heigl) will live while George will die, was prompted by a dream sequence on the finale that saw a torn Izzie on the elevator when the door opened to an inviting George dressed in army uniform.

In a news that can bolster this claim, Heigl has recently reentered the Emmy race, reports Entertainment Weekly. Her metastatic melanoma storyline has drawn raves from fans, not the least of which is Rhimes, who said, "I think she did beautiful work. I think she always does beautiful work."

The Knocked Up star, who won the best supporting plum in 2007, took herself out of contention last year, citing lack of material for her character. Like George, last season's closing episode ended with no certainty whether Izzie will live after the brain operation that has wrought some damage in her brain.




.... George can't die... he just CAN'T!!!

This is probably the characters who has done so LITTLE growth during the show and he still has SO MUCH to give! I mean, com'on! He's got SO MUCH TO GIVE!!! EXPLOIT GEORGE!! He's got a lot of story line to go by. So he screwed-up with Izzy... so he didn't give Lil'Grey the time of day... so he didn't go that far with Meredith (oh... wait, he DID but the bitch cried... STILL --) and he got to Christina by calling her a robot... He got married, he dumped Callie... I think that the fact that Dr Bailey named her child after him is a reason more to keep him... I didn't see Dr Bailey name her kid after IZZY, did I??? And how about him taking on a difficult specialty? Or-or him being the boss' intern? I mean, he has done so much for the hospital -- he should STAY!

So, to the death of George..

Hermione's Stand!


Today I woke up to a message delivered by a friend of mine... well, I still consider her my friend, o thought her message - cold and crude - have me wondering if I am still a friend in her eyes (seeing as I am still talking to this other friend who is not her friend anymore -- oi!). So, the message basically says that I should tell this friend to stop bothering her and this other friend... Since I've been told to tell this guy this and then tell this person that... there is once thing I think people should know. I am taking the Hermione stand and screaming to the world, people:

I AM NOT AN OWL!!!!


I am not here to tell this person this or tell this person that. If you have something to tell someone, TELL THEM YOURSELF. I am not a messenger girl, and even if I was, I would probably charge you for the service.



Moving on...

On Saturday I had a meeting with my very close friends, Ofelia and Diana. So much going on with them! Diana has enrolled to college (again!) and she is now in Accounting. Ofelia is still undecided if she wants to go to do a M.A. or if she wants to pursue another career. I didn't want to start from zero because, honestly? I don't have the mindset to deal with teens who are barely out of high school. I would probably smack them in the head and then be considered the biggest geek/nerd/monster that they have encountered. So, that's why I decided to go forward and do the MA. But back to Diana and Ofelia -- they're doing good. I'm so glad that after all these years, we're still good friends. If we consolidated the friendship in 1996... more than ten years! We're probably going to end-up in an asylum, at old age, sharing an oxygen tank.

This week marks the last week I have of classes. Then, back to scratching the floor to find loose change in order for me to eat something. The good thing about summer vacations is that I get to lose weight because of this.

The problem is that now I have a little mouth to feed... and she gets all cat-zilla on me when I don't do it.


PS: I have found out that my mother's hatred towards Kobe Briant is as deep and founded as her hatred towards Yoko Ono.

The good, the bad, and the Mikuni...


The Good

Yesterday we went to this thing where all the top universities in the border region got together at the Mexican Consulate. It was UTEP, NMSU, UACJ, ITCJ, ITESM, LaSalle Institute, UNITEC, Universidad TEC Milenio, and URN (us). We talked mostly about how we can bring the schools together and find a parameter to do more research. I got in touch with the NMSU rep. and if all goes well we might have guest speakers from the university at the URN. I'll keep you posted on the bridges that we can form with this school. My boss is happy.

The Bad

This friend of mine who has deleted her web page because she cannot handle the pressure brought by others who apparently hate her and have released "ye old hounds of hell". The web page was a social page and most of the people there logged in to get that sense of belonging. Now -- I know that most people can get really stressed out about situations that are out of their control, but seriously, to allow these situations to affect you in a way that you would rather give up something you have worked so hard to build -- just because you find it hard to fight for it? BS if you ask me. I have been through tough situations -- and I have found that you shouldn't throw in the towel just because others pick on you. On contraire -- fight the good fight, hang tough, keep the chin up, and stop crying around that by crying nothing will be solved.

The Mikuni

I have a new kitty. Her name is MIKUNI, and she has already become the light and joy at the Rainy household. She has her own little kitty bed, bowl for water and food, toys, and litter box. She is 2 and a half months old. She likes to sleep in high places, chase her own tail, and chase her own hind paws. She plays and plays and then falls a sleep while she's playing. Hates not being around people. She loves my nieces and nephew. She enjoys playing with the plants and the chair. She can now climb into the bed with no help. Yesterday she discovered that she can fuzz.

Mikuni -- WELCOME!!!

NIEVE DE MAMEY
Gloria Trevi


Vas a querer decir que nunca te guste
Que tu solo decias para ver que sucedia
Mas te descubriré frente de quien estés
Cuando pase por tu lado y se te PARE…
El corazón
El corazón

Vienes a proponerme que viva a tus costillas
Pero eso si que te tenga limpias las camisas
De premio me daras una buena revolcada
Pero solo como y cuando a ti te de la gana

De que quieres tu nieve, quieres de mamey
Y aparte de todo quieres ser mi rey
No mames güey

Me prohibes el gimnasio pero das pa’l frijol
Y pa’ muchas tortillas mira que fregón
Y quieres que me ponga como miss Colombia
Mas vestida de monja pues sino te enojas

De que quieres tu nieve, quieres de mamey
Y aparte de todo quieres ser mi rey
No mames güey

Ahora inventaras queriéndola voltear
Que para casarte quieres ser el primero
De la que te da mas
Todos se reiran, no te enseño mama
Que en esta era lo importante no es ser primer pendejo
Sino ser el ultimo

(2x)
De que quieres tu nieve, quieres de mamey
Y aparte de todo quieres ser mi rey
No mames güey
No mames güey

Y este es un himno de las mujeres…

The Writer's Cafe


I have joined a new website called The Writer's Cafe in an effort to portray some of my writing in English and get some insight about if I am doing it right or wrong. So far the reviews have been good. I guess that I got fed-up with Fanfiction.net and Fictionpress.net and I just wanted to breathe a little. I will be posting the Russian Blue story again in this new network... but I have to edit it first because DAMN!

It's been a while since I've written any fanfiction and I remember that I used to love it. I still do. Maybe it;s the fact that I've been too wrapped in my own crap that I cannot take the time to write. I should. If I want to be taken seriously as a writer I should start with myself, right?

Just wished that the muse that inspires would drop by without me having to drink vodka to make her come... you know?

I found a poem that I just ADORE...

Falling Asleep in Class
by Kenn Nesbitt

I fell asleep in class today,
as I was awfully bored.
I laid my head upon my desk
and closed my eyes and snored.

I woke to find a piece of paper
sticking to my face.
I'd slobbered on my textbooks,
and my hair was a disgrace.

My clothes were badly rumpled,
and my eyes were glazed and red.
My binder left a three-ring
indentation in my head.

I slept through class, and probably
I would have slept some more,
except my students woke me
as they headed out the door.


Hilarius!

Pumas won... and to say that is to say that means that my father is EXTREMELY happy. The PUMAS from the Universidad Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM) are his favorite soccer team since he was once a student at such university. Yesterday was pandemonium at ye Hernandez chateu as my dad put on his pumas shirt and hat and sat to watch the championship. He almost had a heartache and I think he even cried... So, PUMAS are the 2009 champions.

I was happy. Deep down inside I was rooting for the PUMAS as well -- just because Pachuca beat the INDIOS... and what better way to get back at the team who beat your team than to cheer for the team who you are rooting for?

Hum?



The spirit... the feel... Soccer!

Now, a new dawn awaits me and my dad -- as Football season is almost here. We are looking forward to seeing our favorite teams in action.

Go Pack!
