Favorite Sites & Other Fluff!

Hi everyone! 

It seems every time I commit to something it always ends up falling flat on its face. For example, I was going to do a summer writing challenge & write a short story everyday until school started. Guess how many short stories I made this summer? FOUR. Only! I wasn’t productive this summer at all – I only wrote 4 short stories &  rewrote bits of Film. I didn’t even write any poems :( I tried journaling, which lasted longer. I wanted to journal everyday but slowly, (like always) I lost that commitment. I stayed strong for about a week then I slacked off again. I’m disappointed that I didn’t reach my goal. :( So now that summer’s over, I’m doing a new challenge, & hopefully I’ll make it! It’s called the 30-day drawing challenge!

It’ll be a bit hard because I’m really not the best drawer :( I’ll post my pictures on here :) I already drew a picture of myself but I just need to upload it on to the computer. I’ll post it next time I blog. I’m also doing another thing called OneWord, but I’ll talk about that later :) Here is a list of my favorite websites! Try some out! :)

1)  STUMBLEUPON.COM

My goodness StumbleUpon is just about the best website known to man!!! If you’ve never heard of it, SU collects the best of everything on the web – stories, jokes, other funny things, great videos, songs, infographics, games – & presents them to you! All you have to do is sign up for it & you’ll have the best of the web at you fingertips. You can save you favorite sites & look at them later. I really really recommend SU. It’s really entertaining & I literally have stumbled for hours (it’s a great time waster ^_^ ) If you want to add/follow me, my user is kezisicecream :)

2) SKETCHSWAP.COM

Long story short – draw a picture (it helps if you have a tablet ^_^ ) & get a random picture in return! b/c the pictures are approved by the owners of the site first, they’re usually really good! I find it interesting to see other people’s drawings!! :)

3) SECRETSSAFE.COM

Same concept as above! Enter a secret & have someone else’s secret be delivered to you! There is no way for the other person to track you, so it’s safe as long as you don’t put your address or something O_o also really fun! But be warned: sometimes the secrets are inappropriate.. 

4) OMGPOP.COM

I don’t really go on much anymore, but they have really great games! They’re very fun. My user is… KawaiiKezi21?? I think .. ^_^ But anyways, this site is great. My fav games are Balloono & Draw My Thing! Check it out!! :)

5) SKYPE.COM

Not really so much as a website, but more like a program. It’s free to download, & you can talk to your friends who also have a Skype account! You can even video chat for free if you have a webcam. It’s easy to use, I go on all the time! The ideal way to keep in contact with your friends. 

6) ONEWORD.COM

Oneword is really cool! I just found out about it today! (on SU, another reason you should get a SU account) This site is best if you love writing. OW iss where they give you one word each day & you have 60 seconds to write about it. Don’t think, don’t ponder about it – just write. I think this is the best kind of writing – when you write what comes naturally to you. It’s really fun, & I’ll be posting my ONEWORD of the day here! Try it out :) My user is kezi21. 

Not much of a selection, is there? I’m sorry :( I usually don’t do much while on the computer, just watch videos, blog, read ASW stuff obsessively, stumble or read articles >__< Arg I know I do more than those, but they’re trapped in the back of my mind right now!! Maybe I’ll post another blog about this topic later ^_^

NEW THINGS: I’ll be posting my OneWord at  the end of each blog post (read #4 for more info!) & I’ll also be posting the song of the day! Sorry if my taste of music isn’t the same as yours, but it’s always good to try new things!! Hope this post was helpful to you! Bye bye.. just so you know, I probably won’t be on till next Saturday? So see you! 

OneWord of the day: POISON

Nothing is so deadly. She clutched her heart, an icy, not hot, to her surprise, feeling crept up her veins, chilling her, freezing her, engulfing her in an uneasy sadness that could only mean one thing – she had been infected.

It’s so short b/c we only have a minute to write about it & I was typing on my mom’s iPad, not a real keyboard :)

SONG OF THE DAY:

Boom Boom Boom Boom by Vengaboys!! This.song.is.so.catchy!!!! And awesome! I love the beat, and the tune. It gets stuck in my head often :) I wish I could’ve posted the actual music video, but it’s very inappropriate.. b/c if you listen to this song closely.. um.. it’s not exactly kid-friendly o_O .. but of course I only like the tune & stuff, not the lyrics. See ya ♥

 One night, four college students were playing games till late at night and didn’t bother to study for the test which was scheduled for the next day.

In the morning they thought of a plan. They made themselves look as dirty and weird with grease and dirt. They then went up to the Dean and said that they had gone out to a wedding last night and on their return the tyre of their car burst and they had to push the car all the way back and that they were in no condition to appear for the test.

So the Dean said they can have the re-test after 3 days. They thanked him and said they will be ready by that time. On the third day they appeared before the Dean. The Dean said that as this was a Special Condition Test, All four were required to sit in seperate classrooms for the test. They all agreed as they had prepared well in the last 3 days.

The Test consisted of 2 questions worth a total of 100 Marks.

Q.1. Your Name…………………….( 2 MARKS ) 
Q.2. Which tire burst ?……………( 98 MARKS ) 

a) Front Left
b) Front Right
c) Back Left
d) Back Right

**This one is kinda long, but definitely worth reading :) ** 

When I was quite young, my father had one of the first telephones in our neighborhood. I remember well the polished old case fastened to the wall. The shiny receiver hung on the side of the box. I was too little to reach the telephone, but used to listen with fascination when my mother used to talk to it. Then I discovered that somewhere inside the wonderful device lived an amazing person-her name was “Information Please” and there was nothing she did not know. “Information Please” could supply anybody’s number and the correct time. 

My first personal experience with this genie-in-the-bottle came one day while my mother was visiting a neighbor. Amusing myself at the tool bench in the basement, I whacked my finger with a hammer. The pain was terrible, but there didn’t seem to be any reason in crying because there was no one home to give sympathy. I walked around the house sucking my throbbing finger, finally arriving at the stairway. The telephone! Quickly I ran for the footstool in the parlor and dragged it to the landing. Climbing up, I unhooked the receiver in the parlor and held it to my ear. “Information Please,” I said into the mouthpiece just above my head. 

A click or two and a small, clear voice spoke into my ear. “Information.” 

“I hurt my finger. . .” I wailed into the phone. The tears came readily enough now that I had an audience. 

“Isn’t your mother home?” came the question. 

“Nobody’s home but me,” I blubbered. 

“Are you bleeding?” 

“No,” I replied. “I hit my finger with the hammer and it hurts.” 

“Can you open your icebox?” she asked. 

I said I could. 

“Then chip off a little piece of ice and hold it to your finger,” said the voice. 

After that, I called “Information Please” for everything. I asked her for help with my geography, and she told me where Philadelphia was. She helped me with my math. She told me my pet chipmunk that I had caught in the park just the day before would eat fruits and nuts. 

Then, there was the time Petey, our pet canary died. I called “Information Please” and told her the sad story. She listened, then said the usual things grown-ups say to soothe a child. But I was unconsoled. I asked her, “Why is it that birds should sing so beautifully and bring joy to all families, only to end up as a heap of feathers on the bottom of a cage?” 

She must have sensed my deep concern, for she said quietly, “Paul, always remember that there are other worlds to sing in.” Somehow I felt better. 

Another day I was on the telephone. “Information Please.” 

“Information,” said the now familiar voice. 

“How do you spell ‘fix’?” I asked. 

All this took place in a small town in the Pacific northwest. When I was 9 years old, we moved across the country to Boston. I missed my friend very much. “Information Please” belonged in that old wooden box back home, and I somehow never thought of trying the tall, shiny new phone that sat on the table in the hall. As I grew into my teens, the memories of those childhood conversations never really left me. Often, in moments of doubt and perplexity I would recall the serene sense of security I had then. I appreciated now how patient, understanding, and kind she was to have spent her time on a little boy. 

A few years later, on my way west to college, my plane put down in Seattle. I had about half an hour or so between planes. I spent 15 minutes or so on the phone with my sister, who lived there now. Then without thinking what I was doing, I dialed my hometown operator and said, “Information Please.” 

Miraculously, I heard the small, clear voice I knew so well, “Information.” 

I hadn’t planned this but I heard myself saying, “Could you please tell me how to spell fix?” 

There was a long pause. Then came the soft spoken answer, “I guess your finger must have healed by now.” 

I laughed. “So it’s really still you,” I said. “I wonder if you have any idea how much you meant to me during that time.” 

“I wonder,” she said, “if you know how much your calls meant to me. I never had any children, and I used to look forward to your calls.” 

I told her how often I had thought of her over the years and I asked if I could call her again when I came back to visit my sister. 

“Please do, she said. “Just ask for Sally.” 
Three months later I was back in Seattle. A different voice answered “Information.” I asked for Sally. 

“Are you a friend?” She said. 

“Yes, a very old friend,” I answered. 

“I’m sorry to have to tell you this,” she said. “Sally had been working part-time the last few years because she was sick. She died five weeks ago.” 

Before I could hang up she said, “Wait a minute. Did you say your name was Paul?” 

“Yes.” 

“Well, Sally left a message for you. She wrote it down in case you called. Let me read it to you. The note said, ‘Tell him I still say there are other worlds to sing in. He’ll know what I mean.'” 

I thanked her and hung up. I knew what Sally meant.

This woman can’t hold her tongue :)

A male driver is pulled over by a cop and the following conversation takes place:

Man: What’s the problem officer?

Cop: You were going at least 75 in a 55 zone.

Man: No sir, I was going 65.

Wife: Oh Harry. You were going 80.

(Man gives his wife a dirty look.)

Cop: I’m also going to give you a ticket for your broken tail light.

Man: Broken tail light? I didn’t know about a broken tail light!

Wife: Oh Harry, you’ve known about that tail light for weeks.

(Man gives his wife a dirty look.)

Cop: I’m also going to give you a citation for not wearing your seat belt.

Man: Oh, I just took it off when you were walking up to the car.

Wife: Oh  Harry, you never wear your seat belt.

Man: Be quiet, woman!

Cop: Ma’am, does your husband always talk to you this way?

Wife: No, only when he’s drunk.
