Yay for Honesty! :)

Here is the moment you have all been waiting for...when my lies (and truths) from the last post are to be revealed!

Okay, fine, you probably weren't waiting for that, but just play along!

1) FALSE!!! I was only suspected of being a murderer by my English teacher. My AP Human Geography teacher just recommended that I see a psychiatrist.
That's not much better.
Well, not completely normal. I am a bit eccentric. But I'm not crazy enough to harm people! 
By the way, I did have a pet leaf. What? Stop looking at me like that! She was so soft! I had to keep her! She was a silverleaf, by the way. I got her when I was helping to decorate my city's Rose Parade Float. I was supposed to glue silverleaves....somewhere on the float. But I couldn't glue Leafy! And yesterday, at Relay for Life [a very meaningful and fun event, by the way], I got a pet cup! But I lost it.
This is what happens when you prohibit your child from getting real, actual pets.

2) FALSE!!! I was (am still am) terrified of heights. I'd never have wanted to fly. 
I was an easily frightened child. Did I ever mention that I was also terrified of short people? I don't know why, but I always used to cry when I played with short people. They could also boss me around easily. But then again, I was (and still am, sadly) a pushover, so anyone could boss me around. I guess the only bossy people I knew were short people. How odd.

3) FALSO!!! Thank God.

4) I bet you all were cracking up when you saw this "lie/truth." How could part of me be something that DOESN'T EVEN EXIST?! And who ever heard of a ninja dragon-lion-dog? This is obviously FALSE, right?
Actually, it's not that simple. 
Of course it's not true LITERALLY, but it's true figuratively. Before you try and tar and feather me and yell, "If something is true figuratively, IT'S NOT REALLY TRUE!!!" let me explain my reasoning. And if something is true figuratively, IT IS SO TRUE!
First, let us consider the zodiac. 
  • I am a Leo, which is a lion. Hence, my being part lion.
  • I was born in the year of the dog. Hence, my being part dog.
Secondly, let us consider class mascots. At my school, each class (i.e. class of 2012, not history or math classes!) vote for a class mascot and (usually) color. We didn't get to vote on color. We got assigned to purple and silver. I like that color, but I think it's a laaaaame class color. Anyway, onto the considering of class mascots:
  • My class's (the class of 2012) mascot is the dragon. The purple and silver dragon, to be precise, since purple and silver are our class colors. Hence, my being part dragon.
And the ninja part? Well, I'm just super ninja. I can sneak away easily! I don't care that that's really the class of 2010's mascot! I'm just super ninja! :)

5) TRUE!!! During a dinner party, people were remarking on how sad it was that I was mentally retarded and couldn't talk. Then, I suddenly screamed my nursery rhymes! That shut them up. Then, I showed my smartness to all even more. And now, they're expecting me to get into Harvard easily. That's a problem...quite a problem.

6) TRUE!!! My latest rant was at my printer, which can't even carry out its purpose in life: to print stuff! Sure, it could scan things, but it couldn't PRINT STUFF! I was enraged. 
7) FALSE!!! In fact, I have never had a sugar rush. Ever. 
8) FALSE!!! I can say "Hello" in NINE languages:
  • Hello
  • Namaste
  • Assalam-wa-alaikum
  • Hola
  • Shalom
  • Ni-hao
  • Bonjour
  • Gutentag
  • Konichi-wa
No one gets e-cookies for getting them all right, but Scott gets e-cookies for guessing number 4 (though he probably was trying to be sarcastic...).
Oh, what the heck. All of you can get some, too. Scott just gets more.
But WAIT!!! I have an announcement!!!
I'm going to start posting Weekly Illustrated Stories on this blog! YAY! I already know what I'm going to write for the first WIS. Here is the first paragraph:
Every fairy tale involving knights, dragons, and princesses depicts knights as chivalrous and noble and dragons as mindless man-eating machines, and it always ends with the knight slaying the dragon and rescuing the princess. But that wasn't always the case. Sometimes, the noble knights didn't win. But, more importantly, not all dragons were evil, and not all knights were good. Sometimes, a knight was just in the business for the fame and glory, and they confronted dragons who were only being nice to everyone around them. Those greedy knights did win sometimes, unfortunately, but other times, the dragon won. These instances either were forgotten or, if the knight won, were twisted to praise the knight and vilify the dragon. Here is one of those tales that was simply forgotten with time:
 What do you guys think? Plus, some of you guys will be included in my story. But I need an evil knight. I don't like to make someone the villain without their permission.

YAY FOR LIES AND PROPAGANDA!!!...well, except not the "propaganda" part

Scott gave me a very prestigious award! WOOHOO!!!

According to Scotty:
If you want this award, you must:
- thank the person who gave you the award
- copy the logo and place it on your blog
- link to the person who nominated you
- tell up to six outrageous lies about yourself and at least one outrageous truth, or vice-versa
- nominate seven "creative" writers
- post links to the blogs you nominate
- leave a comment on each blog letting them know they've won the award. goes...
By the way, the pictures are not necessarily true...they may be exaggerations. For example, the last panel of the picture for fact/fib #3 probably didn't least, I would hope not!
1) I've been suspected of being a murderer by two people. One of them was my English teacher for no other reason than the fact that I smiled a lot (he must have loved Shakespeare's idea of "smiling villains") and the other was my AP Human Geography teacher because of my gory, graphic drawings on his tests that looked something like this:
No, I don't color them (this is during a test! Who has time to color?) and the drawings themselves waste my time (I find myself rushing the last portion of the test...but I still get an A, so it's all good). Oh well. 
2) I wanted to learn how to fly, so I captured many birds and tried to steal their feathers. Needless to say, that didn't end well...

Birds can be scary.

3) I've been conked by every type of ball...even a bowling ball! Eep. That was unpleasant. 

(As you can probably tell, I don't appreciate the "cures"--so to speak--of some doctors. I'm definitely not saying all doctors are as greedy as the one in the above drawing--I certainly hope I don't turn out to be--but some are, and that's sad. Those types of doctors shouldn't be allowed to graduate from med school.)

4) I'm a ninja dragon-lion-dog! Be jealous of my awesomeness. >:D

5) When I was younger, people thought I was mentally retarded because I never spoke much. And then I showed them by yelling my nursery rhymes...and later, getting into Gifted and Talented Education, and afterwards, getting into my middle/high school that accepts people based on test results! 

6) I yell at inanimate objects. A lot. I don't name them, though, or else I'd get too attached to them to yell at them when I'm mad. Yelling is therapeutic. When you yell, your blood pressure decreases by 96.978832%! And did you know that 80% of statistics are made up on the spot? (Clearly, the statistics are false, but their falseness does not necessarily invalidate the sentence "I yell at inanimate objects", because that part could be true. I say "could" because it's just a possibility. It doesn't have to be true. But the possibility is still there...and...I should probably just move on now, shouldn't I? :D)

7) I've gotten so hyper due to sugar rushes that once, I ran to the nearest park, played on all the equipment, and still wasn't tired! My parents were, though. 

8) I know how to say "Hello" in eight languages.

Which are false and which are true? Guess the comments! :)

Oh, right, I should get to nominating people already. Oh and I probably will nominate people who have already been nominated (I don't know too many blogs) so, if I nominate you when you received an award already, then TOO BAD! And sorry. But TOO BAD! BECAUSE I REFUSE TO CHANGE IT! Write another post of lies if you want, and if you don't want to, then that's okay. It makes sense. I know I wouldn't want to write another post of lies. (it was hard enough to do so already, anyway!)

(I decorated the award to make it seem more awardish just for you guys! And Scott, you can have one, too, to print out! :D)
So there. Those are the lucky (or unlucky) recipients! Goodbye, and have fun guessing! A word of warning: the lies that you think are lies may indeed not be lies at all, and the truths that you think are truths may not be truths either! Good luck to all!

Sorry about the lack of posts!!!

Yeah, what the title said. :(
Teachers appear to love piling on the workload the few weeks before we obtain freedom. This, unfortunately, seems to be the case with my teachers. Ugh...three projects and a spaceship-load of homework. The upcoming SAT II Chemistry test isn't helping matters much either...So, I haven't been able to post anything. SORRY!
BUT I do have a post planned. Here's a picture that might (read: most likely will be, unless I get conked by some meteor and I get amnesia) appear on my next post.
What/who is that? Why is his head shaped like a triangle? And why is he so GOSHDARN CUTE (or ugly, if that's what you think...but it was supposed to be cute)? And what in the world does he have to do with anything? Keep checking back for the answers to these questions and MORE!!!
