But she was still MRS. SCHÄCHTER!!!

The funniest three things I ever heard today:

So, I have a project in reading class where I have to pick four quotes in Night that have to do with one of the symbols in the book and explain each quote. I picked fire as the symbol, and had asked pathvain_aelien if she could help me with it, and she agreed, but then she said she doesn't remember any instances of fire in Night. Then this happened:

ME: (something about the part where Mrs. Schächter says, "Fire! I see a fire! I see a fire!")
PATHVAIN_AELIEN: Wait, what?
ME: You know, that woman on the bus who--
PATHVAIN_AELIEN: Did you just call her Trogdor?

Later on, when pathvain_aelien was getting something:

PATHVAIN_AELIEN'S BOYFRIEND: Come on, Trogdor!

Even later, when we were talking about the project again:

PATHVAIN_AELIEN'S BOYFRIEND: Is Trogdor a symbol?

Sure, the Trogdor comes in the night, but not the one by Elie Wiesel.

I don't see anything wrong with the subject line, or the post, and it was funny. It's still funny, because it made me laugh. :)

(Explanation to anyone besides us who happens to revisit this entry even later than we did: Some drama on LJ that happened much later made it seem not only plausible, but likely, that a lot of my old entries and comments - including this one - might make people, even my LJ friends, hate me, so I linked to all of the posts that I was worried about.)

Um, what about the fact that I made a joke, at all, about a very serious novel (even if it's less related to the novel itself and more to Mrs. Schächter's name being misheard as Trogdor)?

It turns out no one's actually offended by this yet, yes, but that's why I was worried about this...

Because people make jokes about EVERYTHING. I make jokes about serious novels/movies/things that happen because that is what humans do. In fact, I am the one that made the joke about Trogdor, but it doesn't mean that I don't think the things in the book were funny or don't take them seriously. I do. Jokes are completely allowed so humans don't go insane from the depression of everything bad that's happened.

Well, okay. If no one's offended about it yet, then I guess it isn't offensive.

Blurb

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
