I finally got back to importing entries from when I was on Blogger to this LJ, in part so they'll get archived offline with the rest of my LJ posts (ljArchive is a nice little tool), but largely so that all my online journaling will be in one place. (Once I finish with Blogger, I'll move on to the Xanga I had.)

OH MY GOD DOING THIS SUCKS. I have to open up each Blogger post-in-edit-mode in it's own tab in order to copypaste it over (because I'm not going in and hand-inserting italics tags and so on if I copypasted from the blog itself), but also have the blog open since the edit windows don't show the date of the post anywhere obvious, nor the time, and I need to properly backdate these things.

Plus, I have to do a month of posts at once or else I'll never remember where I left off, which means doing this SO MANY TIMES IN A ROW. I posted at an incredible rate back then compared to what I do now, and so much of it was UNIMPORTANT SHIT. There's a reason I have a "why I regret importing everything" tag, and it's only going to see more use as I go on. At least the frequency with which I have to use the "gratuitous Japanese" tag is going down already, and I'm only five months into a good few years worth of posts. (Thankfully, I do have a dead spell in early college, and I don't get back up to my ridiculous posting frequency until after I already was on LJ. Less thankfully, that ridiculous posting frequency continues past where I've imported to for some time.)

Did I mention I started this importing old posts project in 2008? Yeah. Still going to finish... someday. At least the "read through everything in one go" project that will follow will be significantly easier.

(Mostly I'm just making this post so everyone will go to my archives and lol over how ridiculous I was in 2001. Because oh god, was I.)

I just spent around half an hour copypasting and backdating my blogger posts from September of 2001. Check it out!

There are some posts in there labelled "AngelAnne". Blogger allows for collaborative blogs, and we were internet friendsies in the way only middle/high schoolers on the outer rim of fandom can be. Anne also happens to be [livejournal.com profile] evil_authoress. I asked before copying her posts, of course. (A while ago - this is a very slow project...)

So, I have this old Xanga that I wound up leaving for LJ, and sometimes I like to read through the old posts and see how... not the same I was back then (It starts a bit after I started college, I think.)

And then there's my old Blogger journal that I started my sophomore year of high school, though I kinda forgot about it a lot while I was a senior.

Who's up for me using spare time to back-date those entries here? I'd even tag them with the source and so on and maybe even just generally tag my entries?

(I probably won't start until winter break though, if I do this.)

I was talking to Elusion last night, and we got to talking about how NATALIE IMBRUGLIA ROCKS MY WORLD!!!!!!!!!! And his, somewhat.

And guess what? She's finally making a second CD!

**Dies**

If it's not released here in America, I'm going to kick all the record company execs who decided not to, then get it by was of Elusion. It probably won't happen that that'd be neccisary, but you never know.

By the way, if you hate Natalie because of "Torn," skip that track and listen to the rest of her CD. It's all good music, unlike most new releases which are a couple good songs and a ton of crap. "Smoke" is the greatest song ever, followed by "Here Comes the Rain Again" by the Eurythmics (Also great music-makers) and "Impressed," also by Natalie. "Smoke" is thoroughly un-"Torn." "Torn" is almost pop. "Smoke" is quasi-depressing and I sense some subtext about child abuse, though I might be wrong.

"Impressed" is half a step away from techno. The other day, band period was a study hall, so I brought my CD plaer and that CD, and had people try to guess who's CD it was by having them listen to "Impressed." Nobody guessed right, and everybody was surprised. 'Specially the girl who used to listen to the CD all the time. Then she said she usually stopped about track 6. **Kills girl for not listening to the whole CD**

And she's making a new CD! **Dies** (Yes, I know I told you that already, I'm just really excited.)

Pff.

I've got a 350-word book report due tomorrow. Not a bad assignment, but I chose a very bad book to do. Ah well. Won't take too long.

I suppose I should give you my opinion of the Harry Potter movie.

It was good. Could've been better, but it was good, given that it was already two and a half hours long. I liked the slight change of the zoo scene, having Dudley fall into the snake's habitat as it left,then the glass coming back. Dudley deserved it. Especially book Dud;ey. Movie Susley was cruel, but wasn't given enough time onscreen to be as bratty or cruel as book Dudley.

I feel sorry for movie Neville. He was hardly there. He had his important part for getting points for the house cup, but the impact of it is somewhat lost when we don't know that he's dismal in all his classes and such. The only thing we know he's bad at is flying.

And Almost no actual learning was shown, and we don't even know what McGonagall teaches. That was kinda upsetting. I was looking forward to seeing the first-years starting to try magic and not really doing well, and I wasnted to see some of the stuff they did.

Snape's class was almost completely cut, so we didn't get much of Snape's... Snape-ness.

I thought quidditch was interesting in the books, but the movie showed me just why it's the big wizarding sport. I'd kill to play quidditch just once.

And Oliver Wood is hot! He's the first person to warrant fanboy reaction from me. And quite deservedly so, mind you. He's hot, has a Scottish accent, struggled to contain a bludger while in tight pants, thereby giving a nice view of his ass... etc.

But that's quite different from my Eric-hanyaan, so don't think I've given up there.

Back to the movie, they cut Hermione finding the right potions at the end. They compensated by slightly changing the devil's snare scene into a Hermione success worthy of 50 points, and moved the joke at Hermione's expence ("ARE YOU A WITCH OR NOT?") to one at Ron's expense. ("Good thing I didn't panic." Watch the movie if you don't understand.)

Voldemort tempting Harry was a good addition. Doesn't change the characters at all, but it show's Voldemort's evilness well.

I can't wait for the next movie. (And book.)

Oh yeah, I've still got the main reccurring theme stuck in my head. The movie had some very good music.

Also new in my life is my decision that as soon as my older brother goes to college, I'm going to come out at school. If he weren't in school now where the information would reach him, which I don't want it to do, seeing as how he's a somewhat bigoted bastard at times, I'd already be out.

I'm thinking band camp will be a good time, unless he goes to a college with a really late (relative) start of courses, like OSU. I'll at least have that weight off my chest. I'll probably still have the Eric thing, but at least people'll know I'm gay.

I just took thespark.com's gay test, and it said I'm 34% gay. But also that the average "straight" guy was 39% gay. And that the average Merner is 105% gay.

Sorry. Just had to throw that in. Not really sure why...

Wheee. Homecoming has come and gone, and I'm not sure what to make of it.

Jillian came over to my house about 5, and I cooked dinner. Nothing fancy, just chicken fingers, pasta, and corn off the cob. We ate. She went home, and we got into our nice clothes.

How I hate ties...

I go to her house, and parents take pictures. And take pictures. And take pictures. Then we move to a different spot, and parents take pictures. And take pictures. Etc...

We finally go to the dance, and well, neither me nor my date are really dancers. 3 hours of standing around and talking to freinds we see every day. Fun...

Well, it was fun when I showed everyone my dances for people who cant dance. ^_^

And when we got our picture taken by the professionals who set up a camera in the gym. We got a group picture, with 12 of us. As we were being puit in place by the photographer, Bob got off-balance, and ran into Toni, who fell onto the backdrop, a cardboard semicircle base, with cardboard columns connection to a cardboard semicircle top. The top starts falling, but the base was staying in place. The photographer rushed in, and got the top back up.

Well, the outer coluims end up like this: / \ instead of l l. The photographer fixes one (l \) and tries to fix the other, but got this: / l.

So, the backdrop was not all that straight in our picture.

Then, after the picture is taken, we move away, and there's a huge dent in the front of the base, and a hole on the top of it, where Toni fell on it. I'm sure the photographer was glad we were the last picture.

Schu may not be so happy that the thing was broken though. Seeing as how she helped make it.

Which is why I'm glad she doesn't know who broke it.

The dance ended not long after that, and we all went home.

The end.
