Telling someone that she has a distinctive walk is a fabulous way to guarantee that she will never feel as if she is walking normally again.

Friendship bracelets are extremely difficult to put on by oneself, but they fall off like overzealous lemmings or gangrenous appendages. Ingenious metaphor for friendships themselves or crazy coincidence?

Angel food cake without Cool Whip is worthless. See also: pound cake without powdered sugar.

What really makes me happy is basking alone in the afternoon sun with some playful jazz floating softly along with the breeze, lazily stirring through my thoughts as they simmer in my head.

Committing to the fantasy and ignoring the reality is much easier than committing to the reality and ignoring the fantasy.

For future study: Is there a correlation between boys who burp like wusses and boys who are spineless, annoying pansies? Can it truthfully be said that boys who burp well are worthy of love and adoration? Finally, is it possible to teach a boy to burp well?

zomg, diary. What on earth am I going to say to Elijah Wood on Twitter to set me apart from the thousands of insipid, moronic fangirls undoubtedly clamoring for his attention?

ARG. BOYS.

Well I certainly hope I break the correlation between wussy burping and spineless pansiness... :-/ I've been known to display a lack of spine on occasion, but it's developing a bit more as time passes. :-)

HOWEVER! Not sure how much I can actually comment on the rest of this post, as it's a wonderful deep thought time for pondering and thought... I'll simply agree with your last sentence. ARG. (Also on feelings and people in general.) Cheers!

1. totally agree about walking. I had a friend in middle school who told me I walk down stairs kinda sideways, and I have been subconscious of it ever since. That's almost 10 years, people!

2. Angel food cake is not a food with out cool whip. Bonus points if it has Strawberries with it.

3. Totally agree about the burping thing.

Strawberries are a good substitute for cool whip. Strawberries + cool whip = ZOMG

Pound cake drizzled with limoncello or amaretto don't need no powdered sugar.

But I can't think of a single application for angel food cake where I didn't think devil's food was more effective. Which may say more about me spiritually than I care to admit.

So, just wondering...
Does Elijah Wood burp well?
Or is he a spineless, annoying pansy?

Ask Elijah how well he burps. Duh.
