Live Puppy Stream

****** NEW !!! 12/03/08 I took off the puppy stream because it took so long to load, (it used to be right here) but you can still see it right above my playlist at the bottom of this page.

I added a live puppy stream to my blog at the bottom of this page....and here if you are too lazy to look. It's an actuall live stream of the inside of a puppy kennel. Watch you favorites play and chase their tails 24 hours a day. And live a sad and pitiful life, if you really wish to spend your time that way. No, but really, it's a nice way to see puppies with out allergies or cleaning up poop, or even getting up at 4 AM to run your little scrump out the door to do their business. Enjoy and please, don't obsessise over it. I know it's addicting, but we must learn to resist.

So Beat the Drums 'cause We're So Thoroughly Mod-ern Mil-lie Now!

Come see my play!!! I don't know if you can see the dates and stuff in this picture (if you can't just click on it) but it's November 13-17 each night (but Sunday) in the East High Auditorium at 7 pm. My school is at 840 South 1300 East. The show is called Thoroughly Modern Millie and it's a 20's styled show. IT'S SO COOL AND WAY FUN, everybody should see it. Tickets are $5 and it's full of family friendly fun and comedy. Today we just had a performance for the elementary schools and it actually went really well, except for a little prop trouble...heh heh. Yeah somebody missed their cue for raising some windows out of the way of moving doors so they broke right before intermission. But that was ALL that went wrong! It still rocked and was by far the best performance (counting like dress rehersals and all). When I was walking home today I passed the Uintah kids all playing during recess and some of them ran over pressing their faces against the fence yelling "HEY WE SAW YOU AT THE PLAY!" or "YOU GUYS WERE REALLY GOOD!". Just little things that make you feel good, you know.

9 More days!

An Update

Did everybody enjoy their Halloween? I had a blast. Yes, I actually went to the Masquerade at East.

Oh my gosh, I've been wanting to write about this for a few days, but It's been the end of the term and I've been super busy....

Anyway, in biology a few days ago we were examining live goldfish under microscopes to be able to see a cell in full function. The sequence went in this order:

Take one happy healthy goldfish in a beaker and prepare it next to your microscope. Get a clean paper towel barely BARELY wet and wrap it the 'hotdog' way so it's an inch wide.

This is the gross part:

You then quickly grab the goldfish out of the beaker and cup it in your hand (don't let it flip and drop) while your partner holds out the paper towel strip. You carefully lay the goldfish near the top of the piece of towel and wrap it slowly and gently into a litle goldfish burrito. It's tail should be sticking slightly out so you can shove it under the microscope to see the cells in it's fin. This all has to be done before your fish dies. If it dies, then the teacher would flunk you. Automatically.

But that doesn't mean that kids are carefull with their goldfish -- right next to me I saw a group drop (accidentally) their fish repeatedly on the counter. It was REALLY sad to watch, but better then what happened near the end of the class period. This girl named...we'll call her Julie...kept picking the poor fish out of the water by it's tail between her fingernails and then dropping it back in. At the end of the ordeal, I couldn't exactly tell what she was doing because she was facing away from me and blocking the view of the glass but some others who were near her asked, "What are you doing to that? Did you just kill it." No answer. But later the teacher saw that it was dead, floating in it's beaker that was studiously placed next to everybody's healthy just used fish. He didn't know who ever did it. It was terrible.

Well, everything is moving on like normal. Some things are boring, some more exciting. Bleh, it's the end of the term soon and I should go get on my homework now. Sigh, highschool really sucks sometimes.
