You're an Expert Kisser

You're a kissing pro, but it's all about quality and not quantity
You've perfected your kissing technique and can knock anyone's socks off
And you're adaptable, giving each partner what they crave
When it comes down to it, your kisses are truly unforgettable

This is retarded.

Your Life is Like


He Could Be More Than a Hookup

But you're not really sure what you want him to be.
Sometimes you have fairly serious feelings for him.
If you think there could be more, than go for it.
(Just make sure he wants something more too!)

All these ask about 'my guy.' I don't have a guy. Okay. Stop rubbing it in.

That first one catches me off guard. I...miss kissing.

17. Leah
18. Ross
19. Scott
20. Caitlin
Now answer according to the names listed.


1. How did you meet 13? Dude. Dance at the Bay Landing when we were 4. I was a pretty princess and she was Barney. *sigh* Good memories

2. What would you do if you had never met 5? I’d be less one really awesome, tomboyish friend who I can tease and poke and steal foo from

3. what do you honestly think of 10? Kirk? Uh…annoying. Seriously needs to be neutered. You guys know what I mean.

4. Would or did 19 and 8 date? They don’t even know each other. But I mean, Scott’s a crazy sax-playing-kind-of-stoner, and Jess is a tree hugging rugby player. Maybe.

5. Did you ever "like" 4? *glares* Well…you know, obviously. Not anymore, though, thank you very much.

6. Would 2 and 11 make a good couple? Mary and Amy? They’re both girls. Although…Amy…
"Who’s the little boy now, Zach!"

7. Describe 7 in three words: insane, hot-jell-o loving, bunk buddy. Love ya Kyla!

8. Do you think 12 is hot? *laughs* LMAO LISA!!!!

9. Would 1 and 17 make a lovely couple? Why does this keep pairing up my girl friends. Janet and Leah would never ever date, that’s silly.

10. Tell me something humiliating about 16? That’s terribly mean, I love Brody to death! But he does have a strange obsession with his book characters!

11. Do you know any of 3's family members? Yup, mom, dad and sister Emily. Her parents are crazy!

12. What's 20's favorite color? Oh…I haven’t talked to Cait in the longest time…I think it’s blue.

13. On a scale of 1-10, how cute is 14? This is a bad question. Although the laws of the survery’s command me to answer so. It depends on the day…usually a…um…8. Yes. *cowers*

14. What would you do if 15 just confessed his/her love to you? What do you mean, what if? Candace-chan loves me! Lol, I don’t know, I’d probably ask her how many coolers she had that night. ^_^

15. What language does 19 speak? Scott: English. But when he’s high, it’s quite different…

16. Who is 8 going out with? Jess? I don’t think she’s going out with anyone.

7. Would 18 and 10 make a good couple? *laughs so hard she cries* Ross is my really, really tall random high-five buddy and Kirk is the pervert of the stairwell. Never in a MILLION YEARS. The closest they’d get to a couple is if Kirk raped the poor boy.

18. What grade is 15 in? Candace-chan is in her second year of University at Brock.

19. When was the last time you talked to 12? Awhile ago, actually. I think it was the other day in the stairwell when Amy made me and Zachary waltz…

20. What is 2's favorite band? Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, etc. Anything from way back then. Such a bohemian.

21. Does 9 have any siblings? Sam? I don’t think I’ve ever asked her.

22. Would you ever date 6? Matt? This question makes me laugh in a ‘sarcastic way that isn’t really sarcastic, just me being weirded out’. Possibly. I think so.

23. Would you ever date 1? Janet, darling. I told you. You can’t pay me enough.

24. Is 11 single? Hell no. Amy dates Music. Du-uh

25. Would you ever want to be in a serious relationship with 3? Silly survey, tricks are for kids! This is Laura-June we’re talking about!

Haha, that was cool. Now I should go work on my NaNoNovel ^_^U

So happy [03 Nov 2005|09:47pm]
[ mood | happy but tired ]

Today has been amazing.

Not one thing has gone wrong.

Woke up this morning. Mom drove me to school for second period because of my free.

They did Sax and Flute juries in band, so I went down to Starbucks and got a really, really good hot chocolate and worked out my new NaNo plot.

Walked back up to school. Had lunch with Kathryn and Evan.

Sneaked off to LOST club.

Kathryn: "You weren't in the bathroom! You went to LOST club, you dirty whore!"

On my way back, I overheard Lisa talking about musical parts, and I thought they might have put the list up.

Go over to the other stairwell in an attempt to drag Mary down to the band room to check.

She convinced me that it wasn't up because the last audition was yesterday night, so I don't go.

Go up to Toursim.

Amy: "So did you check the musical list?"
Me: "...Musical list?"
Amy: "Yeah, they put the list up."
Me: *stares* "Yeah...tell her I'll be back." *runs off*

So I look over it.

I got chorus!

I don't even care, I'm just so happy and relieved that I got in. I'm just so brillantly happy to be able to start gushing over all the stuff we're going to do without looking like a bigger retard than if I gushed and didn't get in.

Amy got Gavroche! It's a little boy part, but he dies in the end. And John Han is her father!

This year is going to be amazing! I think everyone from last year got in.

So me and Amy spend Tourism looking up Les Mis things.

Then we go to CALM, where we're working on our resumes.

I'm typing mine up according to the sheet that she gave us.

Her: "Katie, you're doing a chronological resume, you're supposed to be doing a functional one. See where you put education, you should be putting skills and abilities."
Me: "...uh, I've used this resume before, and I have three jobs."
Her: "I'm sure that's great for Burger King job---"
Me: "They're definetly not Burger King jobs, thank you."
Her: "Yes, well, junior leve jobs..."
Me: *glowers*
Her: "Anyone here can write down that they've gone to school. You're trying to make yourself look better than the people here. Now I'm sure you think you're better than the people here..."
Me: Uh-huh.

Pssh. Junior level jobs. I've been at the Center for three years, it took me years to get the certification to become a swim teacher, and the theatres...I mean...come on.

Anyways, so then I go home. I actually fell asleep on the bus. I thought we were on Carmela, but I opened my eyes and we were going up my hill. Whoa...

Mom says we can take all four people tomorrow. YAY FOR MAD PARTAYZ IN KATIE'S VAN!!!!ONE!!!!ELEVEN!!!!


Ohh...I'm just so hyper!

And I learned how to play 'Time Of Your Life.' It actually sounds quite decent.

And Matt says he'll help me with the gui-tar on the weekend. ^_^

Tomorrow is going to be the greatest thing of all time.

1. Auditioning for musical and actually getting in.

2. Making it to tomorrow without messing anything up big time.

3. English projects

4. MONDAY. Or, um, getting into musical. Again. [this seems to be a pressing matter...I think I'm more stressed out about this than I was before auditions.]

5. Physics in general.

6. The weather on the weekend [if it rains, I will cry]

7. My NaNoNovel and why my plot hates me.

8. MIDTERMS *cries* I hate parent-teachers.

Breathe, just breathe [02 Nov 2005|07:07pm]
[ mood | [catiously relieved] ]

It's over.

Thank god it's over.

*breathe, Katie, breathe*

I think I did okay.

I hope I did okay.

I hope we did okay.

They always say you did okay. But you don't know if they're saying that because it'd true or to make you feel better.

* in and out, in and out *

My hands were shaking so much.

As was my voice, as it always does when I sing in front of people.

Or in stressful situations.

This is why I don't sing in front of people if I don't need to.

My stomach feels so weird right now.

I don't know if I'm hungry, or if it's just left over nerves.

Makis was talking about how there's so many grade eleven newbs. I laughed, it's true.

So many teners too.

And John Primack is coming back to coach us.

This is all more reason for me to be worried about getting in.

Missing musical practices with John Primack is not something to be proud of.

* breathe, just breathe *

It went so fast...I don't even remember most of it.

But it's over.

I'm so glad it's over

And Monday can't come fast enough.


PS: Thank you Zach, I [obviously] couldn't have done it without you. <3!

Choose a band/artist that nobody else has chosen yet & answer ONLY using titles or lyrics of their songs:  The Spill Canvas

Are you male or female: Fade in, start the scene / Enter beautiful girl / But things are not what they seem / As we stand at the edge of the world

Describe yourself: And to be completely honest / You're not like all the rest

How do some people feel about you: In one fell swoop it became clear to me / that I despise you entirely / but the good news is I'm gonna keep you around / And so your lust is just convenient now

How do you feel about yourselfI was hoping I could tell you this with two feet on the ground / But I don't think I can talk, because I'm not very stable right now

Describe your ex boyfriend / girlfriendYeah, we all flirt with the tiniest notion / Of self conclusion in one simplified motion / You see the trick is that you're never supposed to act on it / No matter how unbearable this misery gets

Describe current boyfriend / girlfriend / love interest Do I have to spell it out for you / or scream it in your face? / Oh, the chemistry between us could destroy this place

Describe where you want to beWith smiles on both our faces / We spit their faulty ammo to the ground / And remind them once again / With smiles on both our faces
We spit their faulty ammo to the ground / And remind them once again that you can't kill heroes

Describe how you liveI will sleep another day / I don't really need to anyway / What's the point when my dreams are infected / With words you used to say /
I will breathe in a moment / As long as I keep my distance / I wouldn't want to go messing anything up

Describe how you love Yes, it's true / You've brainwashed me and now I'm more confused / I still somehow hope I end up with you / Yes, it's true / I romanticize every single thing I do / Especially when it comes to you

What would you ask for if you had just one wish: Could somebody show me the kind of affection / That you only see in the movies, you know what I mean

Share a few words of wisdomHeaven's not a place that you go when you die / It's that moment in life when you actually feel alive / So live for the moment / And take this advice, live by every word / Love is just a hoax so forget everything that you have heard.

Now say goodbyeThe curtains rising just like the ante / Here we go now, break a leg / No, I literally mean it this time around / I'm sick of you leading me on / I'm sick of you stringing me along, on

Simplified Motion [29 Oct 2005|12:19am]
[ mood | tired ]

I have a new love, and it's name is The Spill Catch

I don't know what it is abot them....but their music is just so moving...and pretty [for lack of a better word.]

I was listening to them in the background yesterday at the library and I just got chills listening to the last few verses of 'Self Conclusion'. Look:

I would be lying if I said that things would never get rough
And all this cliche motivation, it could never be enough
I could stand here all night trying to convince you
But what good would that do?
My offer stands, and you must choose

"All right, you win, but I only give you one night
To prove yourself to be better than my atttempt at flight
I swear to god if you hurt me I will leap
I will toss myself from these very cliffs
And you'll never see it coming"
"Settle, precious, I know what you're going through
Just ten minutes before you got here I was going to jump too"

Yeah we all flirt with the tiniest notion
Of self conclusion in one simplified motion
You see the trick is that you're never supposed act on it
No matter how unbearable this misery gets

I was so proud of myself that I understood what it was talking about...soo good.

Today has been very good. The better of my week.

Went to the library with Zach this morning. We figured out a dialogue and found him some songs. Played around on the computer for awhile [OMGWTFNINJA!!!]

Walked down to Lacewood. Zach left. Called up Kathryn. We went to see Zorro on a whim. It was a good movie. The little kid is my hero.

After the movies I ate supper upstairs. Talked with Justin. Apparently they fired Kendall because HE DIDN'T DO ANYTHING. This is good news.

Went downstairs. Got a new nametag from Greggo.

There were six of us working. Me, Ryan, Krista, Kendra, Chris and Jeremy.

I think Jeremy was on crack. That would explain a lot of things. He was so hyper around the customers. It was nuts.

Kim: "And here's tonight's duties lis---JEREMY! STOP FEELING UP RYAN!"

Kim: "All right! JEREMY! No more singing until 10:35!"
Jeremy: "But...what if it's 10:34?"
Kim: "NO! And there can't be anyone in the lobby. .... And NO ONE touch him."

Soo funny.

I was right on with my cash. SO HAPPY. I got an entire S.M.I.L.E tonight. Score one for Katie.

Working on one of those "Fill out this survey with these lyrics" that I got off of Candace-chan's blog. It's interesting.

Candace-chan, I found you! And yes, you can get drunk without me as long as you find a nice boyo. Mary seems convinced that I need to do this also. *shifty eyes*

Going apple picking with HEAT [hopefully, if it doesn't rain] on Sunday. Should be a fun time. Speaking of HEAT, I should really try to work on that support letter that they need.

I'm off.

[ mood | bored ]

Mmm....bored now.
We have a sub in Tourism. I don't feel like doing anything. At all.
Today has been...odd.

Waltzing was just awkward. Pssh, silly musical.

Guh. I can't wait until musical. I swear, if I get in, first day...it's gonna be this big reunion with my camera, the Chigago CD and some Michelinas. All shall be well. ^_^

I don't really feel like going to work tonight. It's always busy on Fridays, even though it was DEAD last night. Ray only gave us one card. ONE. And we were out by eleven. =P

This weekend should be fun. Mary's wicked party. Then possibly conning someone into seeing a movie with me on Sunday after craft crawl. Happiness abounds.

This keyboard is really hard to type on, it's actually hurting my wrists.

I have a free after this. So, that's like, 4-ish hours from my last class until I have to work. What am I supposed to do for four hours? *sigh*

Anyways...I might go...*mutters something about stupid online space game*


1. Actually auditioning for musical and getting in

2. HEAT events and booking work off for it without totally ruining my school week.

3. English Essay

4. Physics in general

5. Winning the bet. [I'm working on it, I swear]

6. NaNo? Not too sure

7. Actually getting around to seeing people outside of the center.

Today is going somewhat well. I actually had a decent sleep last night. Hee, with a much better dream than the one last night. With someone I haven't seen in awhile... ^_^ 15 more days!
Garg. I don't want to go to work tonight. I feel kind of sick, and it's pretty cold [I slept in my sweater] And I have to work tomorrow to. -_- I don't know what I'm supposed to do for the 4-ish hours between my free and working. This sucks.
Moulin Rouge is the sweetest movie. Their whole 'disguising love affair in a play' is brillant, and Christian is just so...guh. I wish I had a guy like that.
This is turning into a really long post. Yay, it's like my MSN blogs. Maybe I'll just elaborate this and stick it on my MSN blog and be happy.

CALM [19 Oct 2005|11:07am]
Did I mention how much I hate CALM? I spent the entire hour playing that LOST game on ABC [omgwtfBOAR!!!!!one!!!!eleven!!!!]. And wishing I had food. And...wishing I wasn't here. I pretty much killed that stupid portfolio that's due tomorrow. Screw goal planning, it's FINISHED.
Hanging out in the music room at lunch. Then getting Mary's present after school. I'm gonna buy a white pillow case and we shall all discreetly sign it behind her back tomorrow. Swootness.
Moulin Rouge is the funniest thing ever. It's like Obi Wan singing. Soooo good.
"Thank you for curing me of my terrible obsession with love!"
But yup. CALM sucks. Tourism sucks. I want to go to english, and watch movies.
I need some food.

So there's this reoccuring dream I keep having, where my parents are divorced and my dad is making me move away from my friends and everything I love so I can go to JL. It's really...not a good dream. And I had it last night, resulting in little to no sleep.
I'm still worried about musical. I'd do it on Halloween, but I don't have a drive home. Even if I got her to put auditions for another day, I still have swim afterwards.
Maybe...I dunno. I'm going to hang out in the band room at lunch, see if I can find anything out. I'm still pissed there was a musical meeting at lunch yesterday and no one told me. That's the last time I leave third period before announcements. -_-

[ mood | bored ]

Bah, I'm in CALM. This class has no meaning. I hate it. With a fiery burning passion...of doom. And...other bad things. If I wasn't falling asleep in Tourism, I sure feel like it now. Eff...
Zach, stop leaving messages on here when you're in Electrotech. This is why you're failing. And I'm not a butthead. And come up with better names. Loser
And gosh darn, no 28th? Guess I'll just have to hang out with my super cool camp friends ^_^ Kidding, kidding.
Yes, it's true, my MSN blog trumps all. As does my dragon. I think I'll have to give this journal a pirate picture...or something. Yes.
But now I must do other important things. Like...read Greys Anatomy fanfiction. I mean, Izzy and Alex? Did she kiss him?
Peace out
