Your Smile On Fire

...from the song Xavia

old emails, amazing names, and my outrageously expensive notebook

     I spent a little while today reading over some old emails I sent Mich. From over a year ago, from the beginning of 2006 almost. Eesh. I really do tell her everything. It was cool reading it... not so much the big stuff, but the smaller things. Those tiny random moments, moments I'd nearly forgot about until I read them in my old emails. (If you're wondering why I was reading my old sent emails... um... I can't actually remember why. To be honest, I probably didn't even have a reason.) Anyways, all those little moments, the little insignificant seconds in life that make your day.

     Like when I went to get my haircut and the lady asked if I'd ever modeled. I remember now, having to stop myself from laughing because it's such an absurd thought to me. Me, modeling. That is impossible. And the idea that someone would think I could, um... it's just a little crazy. And anyways, it was one of those moments that made my day. Maybe that sounds weird. I don't know. A lot of times I think I type or say things that only make sense to me and no one else.


     In other news, I'm watching Spider-man 3. Um. I'm a big huge fan of the first two... but this movie is just a little bit weird. Seriously. What's with that guy made out of sand? And the weird little creepy black things that attack Peter Parker? (As a side note, do you ever notice how superheroes have the best names ever? Clark Kent. Peter Parker. And I can't remember Batman's name right now, but I remember that it's awesome. How come real people don't have such awesome names?) (I take it back, actually. I do know some real-life people with awesome names.) But I digress. Sorry for getting off on that tangent... I'm a sucker for names. Names, titles of movies and books and songs. Lines in movies and books and songs, quotes I find amazing. I have this notebook, bought it for an outrageous price at Borders a while back. Anyways, this notebook, I copy quotes I love from different books in there. It's nice looking back and reading them because in a really weird way, some of them (some, not all) are reflections, in a way (a weird way) of what was happening in my life at that time.


     In any case, the tuna casserole should be done by now. So I should go.

I wiki'd Batman's real name, and it's Jonathan French. Hm. I never even knew that, but it DOES sound cool!

Superheroes and their appealing names. -_-

The quotes journal thing is cool. I should try that--I'm always reading and always finding quotes I love, but I don't keep a record of them. I should, though. Good idea!

I wish I had an awesome name. Though, not, like, Peter or something because, well, I'm a girl. But I've always hated my name weirdly a lot.

Isn't it funny when strangers ask if you do something (such as modeling) just based on your appearance?  I've been asked if I'm a gynmast or basketball player or dancer, and I'm none of those things!  And my hairdresser asked if I modeled too, weird.
