    And now, to make matters worse, the plantlife is starting to BLOOM ALREADY! I am NOT joking: a good deal of the foliage down here has already turned that early spring lime-green color that I hate so much. :scary:

    I ordered a used copy of Muppets Magic from the Ed Sullivan Show. It's in good condition and all, but good lord, the cover is incredibly hideous. I mean, it never looked appealing in the pictures I've seen, but up close, it looks like it ran through the Ugly Woods and hit every tree on the way through.

    A little over 24 hours to write a 5-page History paper on Plato that I haven't started. Let's do this.

    I have absolutely no idea where my chemistry textbook is and I am praying I left it someplace dumb in my dorm and didn't lose it somewhere in school, considering I rented the book from the bookstore :eek:

    Sorry Ozy. My sister always picks fights with my parents and they are the worst. Hopefully your family can patch things up soon.

    The temps have dropped down into the 60s... I'll take 60s over 70s any time, but it's still too warm for this time of year.

    I don't have a sore throat anyomre, but I am so stuffed up and I don't know if it is me or I am losing my sense of smell. (sighs) I don't like colds. They're miserable! :sigh:

    I think you and I need to start some sort of sister-and-parents-won't-stop-fighting club. My sister tends to exagerate past arguments and make it so that she's the victim and never wrong, and my parents believe that what they have done to raise her is right and won't readily admit to times when their conduct wasn't exactly the best or the most tactful. Honestly, if I could do the events of the past four years over again I would have said "We clearly can't work this out amongst ourselves and we need help" and dragged them all to individual and family counselling.

    It sounds a lot like my sister and mother there. My sister is too stubborn to ever admit that she might be wrong, and my mother either decides to dig in on something or feel bad and buy my sister's favor. They don't have a healthy relationship, and probably do need some counseling. It's hard to watch, but hopefully someday they'll realize that. I hope your family can patch things up soon. :sympathy:

    Same as yesterday. While 60s is certainly better than 70s, it's still not appropriate for this time of year.

    Man, the list of celebrities that died this year never seems to quit. Throw Dave Brubeck on the pile, just short of his 92nd birthday.

    Jazz giant. Plain and simple.

    For the longest time, some people were led to believe the opening musical sequence to Sesame Street's "Jazzy Triangle" clip was Brubeck's "Take Five". It wasn't, but certainly inspired by it.

    Keith Emerson took Brubeck's "Blue Rondo a la Turk", changed it to 4/4 time, renamed it "Rondo" , and the piece became a staple of his 60's group The Nice, and the encore song whenever Emerson, Lake, and Palmer got together. Saw them back in '92, nothing short of incredible showmanship.

    Now Brubeck and Vince Guaraldi can have piano duets in heaven.

    No, colds are never fun, especially ones where you're stuffed up. I absolutely hate that as well. At least, you don't have a sore throat now though, I guess. Hope you feel better soon. :)

    Ooh, really sorry to hear that, Muppetgirl. I really hope that the bullying decreases for you soon. Though if you ever need someone to talk to, feel free to shoot me a PM.

    I don't know what they did, but deviantART somehow bypassed adblockers, because I'm seeing ads throughout their site again, and I haven't changed any of the settings on AdFender.
