Time for More Random Thoughts

Quite possibly the most popular blog post here ever was a bunch of meandering random thoughts. I asked people to respond with their own inane ponderings. So, here's what's been on my mind:

1. I can't believe the summer's almost over.
2. My classroom needs a LOT of work.
3. I really want to see District 9.
4. If the best things in life are free, why does chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream cost something?
5. My cat Jingle is really fuzzy.
6. I need to write more of my next book, so why am I doing this?
7. The Surreau family rocks.

haha...nice Mr. Batson. Especially the ice cream one ;)
Here are mine;

1. I have nothing to do on the internet that I haven't already done...so why am I online?

2. Being a teenager rocks and stinks all at the same time.

3. Why is a "w" called a "double-U" when it's really two v's?

4. Does pi have a square root? And if it does...can I eat it?

5. I don't procrastinate procrastination.

I HAVE TWO CATS.

HANNAH IS A BUMPTIOUSE BARREL OF LARD AND NEVER GETS TICKS OR WORMS OR ANY OTHER KIND OF DISEASE (CALICO).

TOM IS A TICK MAGNET AND GETS WORMS OR FLEAS OR BEAT UP EVERY OTHER MONTH. DOESNT HE REALIZE WHEN HE EATS THOSE RODENTS THAT IM THE ONE WHO IS GOING TO BE SHOVING THAT PILL DOWN HIS THROAT??!! DAD KEEPS THREATENING TO COOK HIM IN THE MICROWAVE CUZ HE HOGS ALL MOMS ATTNTION(TABBY).

I ALSO HAVE A TRICOLORED GUNIEU (I KNOW THAT IS NOT SPELLED RIGHT) PIG NAMED LINCOLN. HE'S SO FAT I THINK HE WAS NAMED AFTER THE CAR RATHER THAN THE PRESIDENT.

Josiah said...

1. I have way to many storylines and way too much fat on my middle, and I am eating ice-cream.

2. I should be writing right now, hmmm, I wonder who one, the seattle seahawks or the green bay packers....

That's my favorite Ice cream flavor too!

1. Is it true that I get less math this year?
2. How many glimpses does it take to change a light bulb?
3. How long would it take them to find out what a light bulb is?
4. Would a glimpse be just as good with a lightsaber as with a sword?
5. Will I ever get to meet you?
6. If I do will you sign my copys of The Door Within, The Rise of the Wyrm Lord, and The Final Storm?

P.S.
Nathan R. Petrie, in another language doubleyou is doubleve (doub-le-ve).

1. I think something’s wrong with my pencil. It seems to keep inserting extra b's into the word 'stabs.'

2. Nine days of summer is nowhere near enough time.

3. It’s too sunny to drive.

4. Winning a friendly sword fighting tournament by shouting literary quotes meant to make the opponent laugh might not have been completely fair, but was definitely entertaining.

5. Who exactly came up with the annoying plan to start closing all the parks near my home?

Evergreena said...

1. How many non-Ukrainian people have actually eaten cherry vareniky and enjoyed it?

2. BACK UP YOUR COMPUTER! (my hard drive recently died...)

3. There is a tree frog stuck to my window on the outside. I think he wants to come in.

4. I recently watched all three extended editions of The Lord of the Rings and loved them!

5. I am not going to college, okay?

***Flinn-fan-of-the-Twins*** said...

Heehee! I love these.

1. Man, do I hate allergies...*sniffle*

2. I love to draw.

3. My best friend just came back from being gone all summer, YES!

4. I'm making a weird DW video, and boy do I get on my soapbox! lol

5. I really want my liscence...so..close...

6. Why does everything good come out in October?

7. G.I. Joe was GREATNESS!!!

Ellie said...

:P Here are mine

1. I really want to write, but can't decide which storyline to work on...

2. I am most definitely NOT left-brained!

3. Pirates of the Caribbean music is awesomeness!

4. Why must the school year be longer than the summer?

5. Adventures in Odyssey is the best radio drama ever.

6. Idioms make no sense. :P

Barie-ah Hue-en-la said...

A new post!! Yippee!

*jumping for joy*

A few totally random thoughts all of couse relating somewhat to writing because I can't think of anything else:

A. My room is a mess.

I literally had to clear at least nine of my 'Writing Inspiration" books, and multiple drafts of my book in-the-process of my bed last night.

B. Everything that I truly believe will happen, happenes.

I know I read somewhere in The Bible that if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can move mountains, but this is ridiculous. Crazy things keep happening, I feel like I'm in a "What if twist" story. Our guests always arrive when I say they should, Mr. Batson always posts when I expect it, and when I want a good writing day, I get it.

C. I love to write about nothing.

I shouldn't have even mentioned that, because once I get started on it, it is really hard to stop me. But I'll try to be brief: Nothing raises so many questions. Like what color is it? Is it rare? Does it even exist?

D. Wow my thoughts are long.

E. Was I going to write something important?

F. No, I don't think I was.

Barie-ah Hue-en-la said...

Am I really that weird? It's so annoying when people blank me.

everlastingscribe said...

Hm, random? Lessee. . .

1. I hate fevers.

2. I'll be delighted to return the mice I've been sitting next week.

3. I love the way that the inside of old books smell. DON'T JUDGE ME. I sniff old books. Okay, I sniff all books, but only the old ones smell good. And I'm not talking the edges. You have to crack the sucker open and get your nose down into the spine.

4. I hate fevers, but fever dreams I find really funny.

5. I want a do-over this Summer for various reasons. July rocked, but June and August need to be redone.

Barie-ah Hue-en-la said...

Scribe:

I love old books too! I have this 1915 version of Nicholes Nickleby, it's so kuhl! I've never thought to sniff it though.
Also; nothing is worse then a mistreated book. I bought a 400 pg book for $1 thinking it was a great deal- I was wrong. It smelled like burnt toast.

Nathan R. Petrie said...

Scribe, I know what you mean with the books lol...my set of LOTR smells pretty good too ;)

Josiah, don't we all have too much writing to work on? lol

everlastingscribe said...

Barie-ah Hue-en-la:

Wow, a 1915 copy of Nicholas Nickleby, hang on to that!

Nathan: I think that all of Tolkien's books have an ethereal and otherworldly scent. I mean ;) they get shipped here from Middle Earth so, of course they're going to smell great.

Justin B. said...

Awesome random thoughts, especially the one related with "District 9." Since I really want to see that film. Here are my random thoughts:

1. Luckily I now have a job at the library, which hopefully will earn me enough for Book Expo America.
2. I hate contacting writers about "review" copies of books. As those authors think I'm exploiting them.
3.Maria V. Snyder's Study Series is extremely addicting, as is Patrick Rothfuss's "The Name of the Wind."
4. I've begun rewatching "Buffy-the Vampire Slayer" from the beginning again.
5. I'm in great need of a Mocha Frappucino from Starbucks.
6.I really need to overcome writer's block so I can continue progress on Blase and Death Seer.
7.About the latter, my artist still has not completed the art for the planned web comic.
8.I've begun watching "Gargoyles," one of my favorite cartoons from my childhood. Nostalgia rocks!!
9.Hopefully Kamelot and Within Temptation will release new albums sometime next year.

Barie-ah Hue-en-la said...

Scribe: I will. That book, it's my precious.

***Flinn-fan-of-the-Twins*** said...

To me, Autumn smells like Lord of the Rings. The scent of trees on
the brisk air, along with a wiff of damp earth. ;D

Lydie said...

1. Is Bomb diggy a word?
2. why do we say 'I have a sister' when we don't actually own the kid?
3. Why isn't my Ipod working?
4. Is calling someone a ding-dong head an insult?
5. If I've already done everything I need to on the computer why am I on?
6. Why can't movie directors ever follow a book and do it right?

Oceanblue said...

Hey! Mr. Batson when are you going to make another book in the Isle of Swords adventure? Or a movie about the Isle of Swords.

Just one random thought...I can't wait to go to Hawaii!

Barie-ah Hue-en-la said...

Nathan: THE NAME IS BARIE-AH HUE-EN-LA.
Is it really that hard? You can just say Barie, my name is a bit long. It's a good thing I don't have a middle name, though, or people would really hate typing it out! lol.
I liked the free read I read (where they went into the old cottage in the forest)and hopefully someday I'll get around to buying a copy. I haven't even bought one of Mr. Batson's books yet, lol.

Yeah, so with you on the cookie dough ice cream thing. Why does it cost money? shouldn't it be free for the whole world to taste it's delicious awesomeness?

1. Why is the Lord of the Rings video game so hard?

2. I want a new iPod.

3. I really want to go to the movies. But there's not much to see

4. I like being a teen. You get to do all the cool stuff. But it's pretty bad at the same time. With ya Nathan!

1. Why did all the songs on my friends ipod get scrambled?

2. It's pretty ironic that after my friend and I go camping (It was HARD!) my friend gets to go to a five star hotel. Lucky.

3. When will my dad get the other computer working?

4. You said yourself that the best things in life are free, so why do your books cost something?

Chris said...

I like your last one Anonymous!

Melia and Lorelei said...

Haha! Great post

Random thoughts? I have plenty of those.

1. The word bed, actually does look like a bed.

2. Left handers use the right side of their brain, which must mean that leftys are the only ones in their right mind. hehe

3. Who was cruel enough to put an 's' in lisp?

4. If you sleep funny, do you wake up laughing?

5. When is Tenth Avenue North coming out with a new CD?

6. Why do all the good movies come out either next year, or in two years from now?
