I just...don't know.

This morning, noon, afternoon...TODAY my bro showed me a computer article that said Lucasfilm was being sold to Disney.  My reaction?  "WHAT NO NO NO CHECK THE SOURCE IF IT WAS THAT SHADOW DUDE DISREGARD IT BECAUSE HE MAKES UP STUFF ALL THE TIME."

(Did I actually say that?  No, probably not, but I think I summed up what I said, basically. XD  Was I actually yelling?  ...maybe.  I was definitely talking loudly at some point.)

Seriously, though.  A reaction of horror and disbelief.

And when I came online later, THE WEB BLEW UP.


(Okay, I'm not being entirely honest here, it was on a few of the sites I frequent. XD)


So, just look around the fan sites, and you'll likely see people that are really excited about it, people that hate the idea, people that are trying to be optimistic.  Me?  I'm still trying to get used to the concept.

So, yes, my first reaction was something of horror, but really it was just because I liked the fact that Lucasfilm was a major company on it's own and now it's hooking up with another franchise.  I liked that it was on it's own.  Stupid, I guess.  So, not really horror, I suppose...something more like dislike, or disappointment.  But I don't think that was the prevalent emotion.  The prevalent emotion was more like disbelief, as I said.  I couldn't believe it.  I still am trying to wrap my mind around it.

A few other fans of the franchise have written on the subject.  Check out Amaranthine'sSavanna'sAutumn's, and Jamie's blogs.  There's also a Yahoo article that has some info.  (This article brings up an excellent point: the question of Princess Leia being a legit Disney princess!  That'd be cool!)

After writing this post up, and thinking on the subject, I think my statement is that I am tentatively optimistic on this subject.
 Let's face it: it's done.  There's no going back.  So, why do the whole "what might have been"?  "What might have been" is for storylines and stuff...it's called fanfiction.  Real life "what might have been" is pointless.

And like my friend DSK said: "the earth will keep spinning and it doesn't really matter in the big picture".

And after all that about not knowing what to think (I am such a drama queen) you now know what I think! XD

Thanks for reading!

Did I say I'd post again today?

Yes.  I did.  That was a stupid thing to say, since...what do I say?

Um, I'm caught up on school, for once in my life.  Well, I have to discuss some stuff with Mom and then I'm--WAIT NO FORGET ALL THAT I HAVE TO READ THAT END-THINGY IN THE SCREWTAPE LETTERS!

Literatue and NaNoWriMo

I am CAUGHT UP on American Literature!

...Okay, so maybe I didn't get caught up yesterday...exactly...but I caught up today so that's all good.  :)

NOW I just have to get caught up on everything else.  When I next report in, I'll be caught up on Religion, no?  Yes.  Caught up on Religion (and staying caught up on Literature!) shall be my goal. :)

By the way...
Yup.  NaNoWriMo, also known as NaNo, nano (when you're too lazy to capitalize), and National Novel Writing Month.

Yup, I'm a participant!

What's NaNo, you ask?  Well, the full, non-abbreviated title, the little diagram, and the link I provided (click here if you didn't see the last one) should furnish you with a good idea.  

Too lazy to click the link?  Still waiting for me to explain?  Okay, fine.  
So, basically, NaNo is this little project, group, idea, website, whatever you want to call it.  The goal is to write a full novel, 50,000 words or more, in a month (November).  You can write up characters, plot, an outline, anything really, to prepare for your novel...except the actual novel.   Nope, you're not allowed to start the novel until November 1st.  And if you write at least 50,000 words by November 30th, you WIN!!!!! :D  

Now, the smart people have their characters and plot all neatly planned out, with their outline prettily tucked away in a binder.  Me?  Ermmmm...well...no.  I have a basic idea of my story and a hazy idea of the characters.  I believe I shall be using this nifty name generator for at least some of the character's names.  

Am I freaking out over my almost total lack of preparedness?  Maybe.  Sort of.  

Okay, now I have no clue what to say.  Something random?  Yes.  Good idea.  RANDOMNESS FOR THE WIN!


Bowties are cool.  XD

I'll post again tomorrow! 

And now for a signature.  


Thank you, Snuffles (wow that looks weird written out...maybe next time I should say Snuffleupagus?), for mentioning Nano as a possible blog post topic.  :)  Look at Miss Procrastinator me, I got around to it like three months later!  :/
At least I did it.  YAY me! XD

Hello, everyone! Glad to see all of you!

...Well, I can't see you, per se, but thank's for checking out this post! :)

I have been inspired by Autumn's wonderful post, and have decided to post something.

Now, what to blather about?
Good word, blather.  Blather. Bllllllaaaaatheeeeerrrrrrr. Blllllllllaaaaaaaaaatheeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.  Blather.  Blatherblatherblather.  Blather.

Have you ever said a word so many times it doesn't even sound like a real word anymore?


I'm chewing gum right now.  It's nice gum: Orbit peppermint.

...PEPPER. :(((((((((((((((((((

I haven't even watched the trailer yet but it's supposed to be really...heartbreaking?  scary?  tear inducing?  I don't tend to be a very sad-emotion-cry-very-easily person.  Feel sad? YES.  Cry?  Um, maybe I tear up.  Maybe. Let's see how much this trailer gets my feels.  I'm going to watch it, I'll report back when I'm done.



In case any of you are wondering what exactly in that trailer made me react like that...everything.  It. Was. Terrifying.

I hope I can watch Ironman3 when it comes out.

I should get back to my school now.    I should have a goal.  Ummmm....get caught up on American Literature.

I'll report tomorrow on whether or not I reached it.
