[Error: unknown template qotd]As much as I try to convince my parents it was actually "Horsey", they maintain that my first word was "Hockey." I'm so Canadian, and proud of it.

But speaking of being canadian, and my current exile in the US, I'm going to be missing Canada day tomorrow. This is the second time in a row, as I missed it last year when we went house hunting. This year, I'm gonna be at Science camp. So I'll celebrate one of my favorite holidays by studying proteins. Fun stuff.

But seriously. Canada day at the embassy would have been so awesome. Sometimes, I REALLY hate my life XD.

Hide, mostly. Sometimes a bit too well.

Heh, this is more like it, though just 5 books would get a little boring after awhile. Could I bring a Kindle instead? ^_^ It doesn't need batteries, it's solar powered!!

Ahem. So assuming that I can't bring a Kindle I would bring:

The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden

HP and the Deathly Hallows by J.K Rowling

The Iliad by Homer (I haven't read all of this yet, but I figure I should bring at least one book I haven't read)

Catch-22 by Someone whose name I forget

and... wait, that's it right?

And no, I am NOT BRINGING ANY LOTR!!! Surprisingly enough, I haven't read any of them yet, so rather then just bring one and torture myself for the rest of my life wondering what happens in the other two books, or bring all three of them and only have room for two other books, I shall just scrap them altogether. Sorry. XD


EDIT: I possible, I might trade one of my first choices for the Complete Works of Shakespeare because I'm a nerd in love with English literature and all that good stuff. XD

Ummm, can I just trade in the DVDs and bring extra books? ^_^

...but I guess I'd bring my RENT movie and Doctor Who. And The Last Unicorn. And Rurouni Kenshin.

Going off topic for a bit here, but we get a two-hour delay from school tomorrow ^_^ That makes me very very happy.

I'd like to say that I'm a realist, but if I want to be honest I guess I should say I'm a little bit of all three. I try to look at things the way they really are, and not try to convince myself that the things that might be are true. However, in some cases this might come out as slightly pessimistic, only because I'm not concerned with the brighter side of the picture or any "silver lining," I concentrate on what really happened, and the options that are really there. But when it somes to people, I'm an optimist in the way that I'm always more ready to believe the better of a person rather than the worst. I try not to stereotype people; I'm fully aware that everyone is their own person and that most people aren't intentionally mean... thats why I have such a hard time understanding when someone goes out of their way to hurt someone else.

But if you were to ask me if a glass was half empty or half full... well, I would say that it depends on what was in the glass in the first place.

"Don't worry about the stock market. Your investments are good."

And then all my friends screamed: "IN BED!!"

How ironic!! XD I've been saying this to myself for awhile now... haha... Call me weird but I would fall completely for japanese singer Ayumi Hamasaki. Just watch some of her performances live and you will understand. :D

Either that or Morena Baccarin, who plays Inara in Firefly.

...or K-9.

I'm still pretty crushed that David Tennant is actually leaving. It hurts me. But since I'm not British, I've never heard of Matt Smith before now (though I'm sure other people have, I'm not really up to date on most things like this anyway) and I'm interested in how he will fit the part. It's been mentioned that he is the youngest Doctor to be casted - he's 26 - and I have to admit that he DOES look really young. What I've kinda noticed in the Doctor Who trend lately is the different relationships between the Doctor and the companions; he was very close to Rose, and Martha was also very attracted to him. I can't speak for Donna, because I haven't watched all of the fourth season yet, but there has also been some pretty deep relationships with outside characters as well, such as the Matron from the third season and Astrid (sp?) from the fourth season Christmas special. So I'm interested to see the series will change with our youngest Doctor.

Honestly, I don't know who I would cast as my "ideal" Doctor. I'm a big fan of Tennant; so probably if anyone asked me the only honest answer I could give would be to keep him.

But I do wish Matt good-luck; the great thing about the Doctor Who series is that it doesn't expect the actor portraying the Doctor to have the same personality as the previous ones. Each Doctor has their own quirks (would you like a jelly baby?) and has brought more depth to their character. Honestly, I think choosing someone so young is a nice way to explore new frontiers with this show; and hopefully Matt will offer something new to this legendary series.

...But I'm still gonna miss David Tennant. Wah!!! :(

What are your favorite and least favorite words? Any reasons why?

Most favorite word: Inconceivable!

Actually it's not. But it's so hilariously funny in "The Princess Bride" so I just had to put it in. My most favorite word is probably "Pinkleworthishly" (please don't ask), and I'm not even sure if would consider that a word of not... But other than that... I guess I'd have to think about for awhile. I don't have a favorite word, I'm not a word person.

But I do know what my least favorite word is. It's "totalitarianism." I don't know if I spelled it right or not, but there it is! It don't like because I can't really pronounce it. It annoys me to no end.

So know that everyone knows about the problems that my brain has...
