Follow the Naming School's Movie Poll (Haha, yay for title conglomeration :D)

Thanks to Mitchel Drake and Elrania for following! You guys have no idea how happy that makes me :)

Name Day: I cannot think of anything significant. Isn't that weird? Usually I'm just full of names, but now I can't think of anything worth doing. Hmm. Okay, well, here's one: Palamon. It's the name of the main character in Chaucer's "Knight's Tale". It's part of the Canterbury Tales that I'm reading for school. I don't know the meaning of Palamon, and I can't find it either. He's my favorite character so far. The story is about two knights, Acrita and Palamon, who get captured and imprisoned. They both fall in love with the same girl, and then they fight to see who "wins" her. I don't want to say more just in case you actually read it someday :)

Anyway, back to real life. Today was better than yesterday school-wise. I think I just overloaded myself yesterday. Today was better. Still insane, but, hey, I'm done, aren't I? Yesterday I didn't get done until after 5 o'clock. Ugh.

My cousin Kathleen is in town! She's on her way to her first year of college, and she's stopping to spend the night at our grandma's house. We're going over there to see her and eat dinner in a little while. I'm very happy about that :)

Okay, so I was supposed to go running yesterday morning, but I was too tired when my alarm clock went off. Then, this morning, I just felt stupid for some reason getting up and running around the neighborhood. So, I didn't go again.

GRR! This has got to stop! I have to get up! I need to DO SOMETHING! My brain is getting plenty of exercise now, but my body...not so much. *moan*

We might go see the movie Julie and Julia this weekend. Have you heard of it? It's about a lady named Julie who decides to cook her way through the Julia Childs cookbook in a year and blog about it. It's not usually my type of movie, but it's supposed to be really funny, so we'll see. I'm excited just to get out of the house, really. Something about doing school all day makes me frantic to get out of here. Some girls from class might go, too, so that'll be awesome.

Um, not much writing action to record. I read over the last 30 pages or so of "Mirror", just getting a feel for it again. I got my touch back toward the end, but then lost it again at the very end. Well, not really the END end, but the end of what I have so far.

The W Chronicles isn't going anywhere right now either, but I'm sure it will eventually. I'm not alarmed at the lack of progress.

Well, Kieran won the poll! Gosh, I'm so torn, though! I really love the way the meaning of Vega goes with the meanings of her brothers' names. And I love the way Vega sounds. But, I also love Kieran, and its meaning is cool, too...*sigh* I'll have to think some more. Thanks for voting, though, y'all! I'll probably end up going with Kieran.

So far, Memory Day and Character Day look like they will replace Word Day and Carpe Noctem Day. Agree with that and want to make sure it stays that way? Vote! :) Disagree and want to change the outcome? Vote! :)

Talk to you later, y'all!

I like Keiran... it sounds better. :P
And don't you find it difficult to just get up? I always have to get ten minutes more, I can never get up just when the alarm clock goes off. Oh well.
