My Band’s Name is Moiré Rhône

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — Saff @ 12:45 pm

As I was stalking going through some of my friends’ pictures on Facebook (boo to the new layout btw), I came across an album cover she had been tagged in. At first I thought she had joined a band and was doing really well. But then I realized it was a meme of sorts (I actually don’t know what a meme is, but I’m assuming right now).

This is my album cover.

This is how it goes…
To create your own album cover, follow these steps:

1 – Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/. Click “Random Article” in the top left navigation box. The title of the random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 – Go to http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3.
The last few (4-5) words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 – Go to http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

I think I’m going to make more over the next few months. Maybe with the same band name. Maybe not. We’ll see. It was fun =)

Share if you make one!

One Day I’ll Speak Many Languages Too!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Saff @ 12:39 pm

I just found this blog entry: How to learn, but not master, any language in 1 hour. It seems pretty… simple. yes?

I plan on learning French and Spanish while the girlfriend is gone. And then surprise her when I see her again. I wonder how long this plan will really last… haha

Also, I was looking around his blog and his latest entry is kind of a social experiment/fundraising thing where if you follow him on twitter, he’ll donate $1 to US public schools, and another company will match $2, so a total of $3 to our public schools. You can read more about it here: The Tweet to Beat: Paying $3 Per Twitter Follower . It seems pretty cool. Also, he’s giving away stuff. So… support our schools and possibly win free stuff! Sounds like a good deal to me! haha

Your Smile When It Rains

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — Saff @ 3:17 pm

Your Smile When It Rains

The rain is blowing outside.
Swaying leaves and branches. The pool oscillates
Cyan blue spills over onto grey concrete
soaked in the earth’s tears.
I sniffle my nose
smothered by the smell of wet dirt.
I can’t breathe without opening my mouth in awe…
The thunder drums and fills my ears
If only you were here to hold me now.
Only four seconds ago there was a flash of light
how close is that?
one-one-thousand, two-one-thousand,
the thunder is loud.
the bass rumbles through the speakers
vibrating my heart strings
made of cat gut resonate so nicely against the wood grains
running so smooth along the neck
across the back
Like a tiger’s shoulders
arching as she stalks her dinner
quietly in the tall, tan grass
so dry against my hands they crinkle and crack when I bend them
snapping into little pieces between my fingers before I toss them in your hair.
You think I am so immature
but one day…
one day I’ll show you that I can do more than take care of myself.
I don’t cower as much when the thunder comes.
but I’d still like for you to hold me.
because the rain is blowing outside,
ripples are breaking the pool below your window,
and I’m watching with my hands pressed against the cold glass,
wide eyed,
the world fogging over as I breathe.

I’m a Lazy Ass.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — Saff @ 10:54 am

I’m never going to get this consistent blogging thing down. I just am too lazy and never have anything interesting to write about.

I really want to scan and post up some of my doodles though, but I’m too lazy to scan them. And upload them. Maybe photoshop them a little. And what not.

I like having pictures with every post. I mean, I like the idea of it. Or at least have something intersting to write about. This post is pretty much useless. I’m just really bored at work right now.

My girlfriend and I started playing Kingdom of Loathing together. It kinda makes us huge dorks. It’s a very interesting and well made, super-complicated sometimes, game. You should check it out. It’s very different, but at the same time, kind of the same as all the other RPG’s out there. But this one will make you laugh. It’s pretty awesome.

These are some of the things you might come across in the game. There’s lots of booze in it too haha. My character is an accordia thief. I’m super moxious =P.

Also, a random free-write (which I should start doing again probably):
Just today I looked out the window to see the world in the morning light, when the sun has just come up, our plants turning up their leaves to feel the warth the sun gives, like a gift to the earth so that we can grow.

New Profession: Locksmith

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — Saff @ 4:10 pm

Last night my friend got locked out of her apartment. She was pretty upset about it too because the only two people who have spare keys were in Europe. And while she was calling people and debating whether or not to call a locksmith, which btw would cost $70, I googled “deadbolt lock picking” and found several sites about lock picking.

Everything looked so complicated when I tried to read them, but then I found this site, How Lock Picking Works, sat down and read it and decided to give it a try.

I found some Allen Wrenches

a small flat head screw driver

and a nail filer thing from a nail clipper

and that is all I needed to pick a deadbolt lock. =)

Got her into her house in under 10 minutes. It was pretty awesome. I should consider becoming a locksmith haha. Or thievery. I just need to learn how to be sneaky…

Never One Foot on the Ground

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — Saff @ 10:30 am

Ah. Finals are finally over. On to winter break…where I get to work 8 hours a day at school for the next week. *sigh*

And on top of that, girlfriend has gone away for the break. Shh, I can’t tell you where she’s gone because she’s a top secret super sexy spy hehe.

Oh well. It’s not so bad. I’m working more hours than usual, so more money. yay. I need to make up for all that I spent over Thanksgiving break and then all the money I’m about to spend over Christmas break. And there’s people I can chill with at work. And some of my sorority sisters are still here. So at least there are still people here to hang out with. Just not used to not having her around. Especially sleeping in an empty bed. It’s weird.

This is kind of how I’ve been feeling since last night. heh. But I’ll get over it. Anyway, I’m hoping to finally hook my computer up to girlfriend’s printer so I can scan my doodles again. I’ve been getting more and more encouragement about the whole web-comic thing. I think I should do a collaborative one in case I run out of ideas or whatever heh. I don’t know if I can keep up a consistent flow of good doodles. I just get sporadic inspiration now and then.

“I never loved nobody fully
Always one foot on the ground”

…cept it’s more like:

I’ve never loved nobody fully ’til now.
She took me with both feet off the ground.

Ai ya. I can’t wait until she’s back.

What am I going to do when she leaves for New Zealand for four months…

Not Yet a Housewife

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — Saff @ 3:30 pm

At 4:30 in the morning I finally finish my first draft of my 12 page Language, Gender, and Society paper. Went to bed. Got up at 8/9 ish to work on it some more. Skipped my first two classes to get it all done.

So one paper done. One more take home test to go. One more linguistics paper to write. Two more linguistics finals to study for. And one History of Jazz class to cram for.

However, I am still considering the housewife career…
Although I did get a nice breakfast in bed from my lovely girlfriend. =) I wouldn’t mind cooking one for her next time.

I cannot wait until I am done with my finals. Actually just my linguistics ones, cause after that I’m pretty much homefree!!! Except I’m working the first weekand few days of winter break. 8 hours a day. woot. Gotta make me some money for the holiday season. Or really just make up for all the money I already spent over Thanksgiving break haha.

So back to stressing out. But before I go…

Sorry I took so long Betsy!!!

Photoshop Tag #1

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — Saff @ 3:39 pm

I decided to start a game of Photoshop Tag with my friend from Sideworld. We started with a picture of a lake in New Zealand (which I chose randomly, but happens to be where my girlfriend is studying abroad in the spring) and we are going to take turns adding things to it.

This is the photo we started with originally.

This is what we have so far.

Can’t wait to see what we’re going to end up with.

If anyone else wants to join us, you should let us know! The more the merrier!!!
