I'm sitting in a railway staton.... Aw never mind.

Have I told you all that I like Simon and Garfunkel? Well I do. So there. They're left over from my hippie stage.

I really don't have anything that I want to write about. There's still the thing with my sister trying to marry me off, and then bringing it up again. There's the thing on monday. I rode the bus home and had a nice conversation. Or perhaps not so simpatico. Joe and I talked about beliefs and such. He says he's going to make up his own religion and he believes in Evolution. Hardly anyone does anymore. It's just stupid.

We had a quiz today in Spanish which I'm fairly certain I flunked. I'm awful at spelling. I mean I could probably do okay using the words in a sentence.... but ... Oh well. She drops the lowest grade.

I tuned a string on my guitar by ear. Yay. I"ve never done that before. And it actually sounds decent. Not perfect, but decent.

We went camping. It rained. We went in a cave. That was cool. Actually it was really cool. And cold too. I drove my car on a real road.

I placed right behind Jason in the snowmobile game we played at Chuck E. Cheese's. That was really fun. It was really cool to see Jason again. It reminded me of how crazy he is. Or was. He's mellowed out a bit I think.

Second English class tonight. We get to actually meet our teacher. El Professor. Scary, you know. Like, we have to have read stuff and have stuff ready for him before we meet him. Which is scary, because you know nothing about him.

How about a career as a foriegn correspondent? That could be fun. Like as a journalist. OOh.

HSG starts next week I believe. Yay. I'm going to miss it so much. Do you know how different it is to be surrounded by people who aren't Christians and don't have the same values? Ugh. So different. What I"m going to miss most of all is the afternoons spent in Gary's office discussing stuff. Some stuff completely dumb and some Biblical. I probably learned the most there.

OK, well I have homework to finish. Later.

Gone Camping, be back soon.

Yeah, we're going camping. I like camping. :) We've added three friends to our already overflowing abundance. :) That makes twelve of us. At the moment I'm exhausted. :P That's me all the time now.

Last night I got to see Jason for the first time in two years. He's grown. When he left he was shorter than me. I'm five six. Now he's tall. His voice doesn't sound quite so funny in person. Mostly because you can see he's not making a funny face. I always suspect he is when I talk to him on the phone.

We went to see Pride and Prejudice. I LOVE PRIDE AND PREJUDICE!!! It was really good. Mrs. Bennett really stole the show I must admit. And Lady Catherine was marvelous also.

I just filed down my nail playing There is A Time. That was fun. Now my fingers are numb and they're typing to the same rhythm as that song.

My sisters, mother and my sisters' debate coach started scheming last night. It is evil. There was a line in the play about women's minds immediately turning to marriage. Tis true, I regret.

They tried to set me up with Mrs. S.' son. My sister makes a comment about us being "cute" or something, and his mother replies that he IS eligible. So she drags me over and introduces us. (not really drags, but calls me over, and I hardly know her... :P) Weirdness. Anyone else have a mom like this? I certainly don't. He's nice. Later I found out he has an awesome job.

Did you know that there are journalists that go overseas to find stories? Ok, yeah, duh. It sounds like a very interesting job... Perhaps i should pursue that..... I've got to stop shooting down every idea.

My english professor is weird. He's doing our whole semester on Blade Runner. Yeah, that old Harrison ford movie about the guy who is looking for clones or robots or something. I mean, weird or what?

I have to write an introduction for one of my classmates, shannon. She seems really nice. And then I found out she was a pagan. I mean, weird. Ok, not really. But.... yeah. Like on the one hand she's really nice and all, something of a kindred spirit or something, I mean we both hate toe socks because of the way they seperate your toes, and flip flops too. I mean how cool is that? We both like milk and horses. She says I remind her of her sister. And she and I could probably be good friends, but she's pagan. I don't want to be good friends with someone like that. You know?

CAMP IS OVER!!!!!! I am so glad. And my boss' daughter is going to work this year. And she's really nice. Today we went to the pool with all the kids and the two bosses' daughters and my sister and I hung out. It was a lot of fun. Crystal and I took Beth and kai's sandals, and we took one of each pair and wore them in the water during break. Um yeah, we're weird.

Then while we were waiting for the bus, I braided one of the girls' hair. And all the kids were surprised because I was doing big cornrows. Like a white person can't braid. :P Sheesh, we're still human you know. :P One of the girls said, "Miss Marguerite, I didn't know you could do nappy hair." lol.

Anything else to add while I'm writing meaningless things to keep you all busy while i"m gone?

Math class is interesting. We're learning about sets and venn diagrams and such things. Interesting stuff.

I'm not sure, but I think I may be actually learning Spanish. Despite not practicing.... Shame on me. It's a cool class, lots of talking. You learn a bit about people.

I'm going. Woohoo!! I've got a hammock! and we're camping by a water fall! and it's not blazing hot! In fact it may turn out cold and rainy!! But that's ok! Cause we're camping! yay!

The Lord Be with You My Dear Friends!

*someone needs more sleep, and it isn't AO*

How many days til I graduate?

Tis I, the college student. I like college. My profossers are nice. My classmates so far are nice. I have one classmate who has the exact same schedule as me. Scary huh? His name is Joe and he works in a button factory. Er, not. He works at a store. He also lives near me, so perhaps we can carpool to our evening English honors class. He's smart. Or at least, he knows the answers in our math class and our Spanish class. Hopefully I'll do all right in English. I didn't realize it was such a writing class. I had to write an essay in class today. Three pages is what i managed.

I do like college though. I've met some people and I'm doing ok. For the second day you know. I talked to people. That I don't know. And made conversation. Decent maybe even.

I'm so.... surprised by the language I guess. I have been sheltered I guess.

But... I've been getting up at 4:55 AM every other morning. And I 'm tired.

So I bid you adieu.

Buenos noches.

How many days til I graduate?

The County Fair

Yeah, we went to the county fair today. It never ceases to amaze me. Just all the different people that live in our county. Ok, I guess I'm labeling people again. But that's a post all in itself.

See, we live on the east end of the county. And we don't go to the west end very often at all. That's the end with the farms and such. Also, we don't hang out at the same places most of the people that come to the county fair do. We're not preschoolers and we're not hicks. I have nothing against either one. But truth be known, I wouldn't know where to find them if I tried. At least not in our county. Ok, perhaps that's not true. I know a lot of them live in our own town. But we do more stuff in the town next door. The town that's half country club half ghetto.

Boy. I like the rides there though. I can sit on the Scrambler for hours, spinning round and round. I don't like rollercoasters. But give me a good fast spinny ride and you can leave me there for hours. Well, at least three turns. That's how many times in a row we rode the scrambler. And then we went to the mud bog and got nice and baked. Like red. Yeah I know dan, I tell you all the time to wear sunscreen, and what do I do, not wear sunscreen. Now I'm all red, again. And my brothers and their friend. :) But it was a lot of fun.

I added some new links. If I've forgottem anyone, please let me know. I don't have Elisabeth's. I'm working on it. :D Jason, when you get here, if you still need help with yours, let me know.

I start school on monday. Oh Boy. I'm nervous. What if i forget something? What if I'm really too stupid for the Honors class I'm taking? What if my professors hate me? Thankfully they're all women. I don't know why that would make a difference, but it does. Unless they're feminists. That could get interesting. :D

I'm rambling on and should go to sleep.

My sisters are at a debate picnic thingy. This year's resolution is to change the medical malpractice policy. Jason, when you get here, it's going to be just us, against all those Debate Nerds filling their heads with Medical malpractice stuff, and spewing it back out at us at random moments, sparking heated discussions about everything to do with it. You are lucky. You missed the petroleum addiction resolution last year. That's not what it was called, but perhaps it will keep certain people from spewing random facts. :D

And to all a Goodnight.

Friday, August 19, 2005

Finally, another post.

I'm considering deleting that last one. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

I have a little sister who is six. Her name is Faith. She's awesome. She happens to like fortune cookies a lot. :) Sometimes we'll walk down to the library and get a bunch of books. We share a love of reading. Then on the way home we'll stop at the chinese food place and get some sweet and sour chicken. We both like that too. And she always askes for a fortune cookie.

She's eleven years younger than I am. When I was younger I figured she could live with me when I moved out. Now, I don't think that's going to happen and hopefully things will improve once we move. But I am looking forward to having her over to my house and having girl nights. Ordering chinese and fortune cookies and reading books. Perhaps she'll like Jane Austin as much as Ana and I do, and we can do a marathon of Jane Austin, reading it or watching the movies. Though they really can't compare, even if they're five hours long. :)

I guess you guys are a bit "huh?" as I keep on listing sisters. I have three sisters. And three brothers. I'm the oldest of seven kids. There's me, Bethany, Anastasia, Jackson, Fletcher, Hayden, and Faith.

Anyway, that nasty post is out of the way, but I'm running out of time. So I'd better go.

Farewell My Friends!
The Fool :D

Ever seen Marguerite Angry?? Well, this could be your chance.

Ok, truth is, I think I've calmed down now. Now I"m just sad. I don't understand how some one can be so twofaced.

Here's the deal, I thought as a treat, though, I wonder if it's really right, That I might rent a movie for the family to watch. We don't have a tv, but my laptop has a dvd player on it and my brothers recently acquired a PS2. We don't see movies at home very often. Today was tiring and I thought it'd be fun. I think MUCH too highly of fun.

Anyway, I brought hom a movie about three kids planning a bank heist to get money to save one of their dads. Now that I think about it, it's against my morals too. I don't think it's ever right to steal. But I didn't think of that till now. I also got fiddler on the roof, because I've never seen it. So, I get home, tel my dad about the movie. Unfortunately, he's already het up about us taking so long at the movie store, and is ready to snatch up any reason to be angrier, it seems. And.... I'm not very diplomatic at times. Neither am I a good salesperson.

He got mad. Talking how I"m bringing evil into the house. So I said, ok, we won't watch the first one, we'll watch Fiddler. But no.... We couldn't watch all of it tonight anyway. So what's the point? OK, then I'm sorry for wasting your evening.

But why does he have to get so mad? I didn't think. I'm sorry. I appreciate him watching out for us. In this instance. But do you think we may have learned more if he had explained it minus the yelling? At least he's cut back on the cursing lately. And then he sets into my mom. That tears me up. This movie was completely my decision, nothing of hers. I am an adult. Please allow me the responsibility of my choices. And of course the topic turns to money, but by this time I am upstairs.

And my other sister who has a bitterness and rebelion problem, chooses this time to come in and call him a name. I told her to watch her mouth or get lost, because, frankly, I hear enough of this stuff at work and seriously, I'm the one who he offended, not her, and he is looking out for us, though that's something she never appreciates anyway.

I think I have mascara all under my eyes now...

How about some good news? Josh has consented to go to Church with us on Sunday. Ok, so he's going cause they let you skate in the parking lot, or so he says. I think he wanted to go anyway, but .... I don't know, too macho? (Josh Macho? lol not that he isn't strong or anything, but he... isn't like that.) I'm glad he's coming. Sometimes... I don't know, we all have our tough things to go through. Ugh.

I apologize, this post has such a pessimistic feel to it. But I needed to vent a bit, and ... Well, usually I just dump on one of you, but I thought, you guys see lots of other parts, why not this?

It may not be wise, but then I never said I was. I didn't name myself the Fool for nothing. Biblically, I am. I"m also a loser.

I have a pride problem, I don't need help with my self esteem. Please don't try to make me think I'm not a loser. Or a fool. Because, you all are too.

Ok, so you might be wondering how to reach me through something other than my blog.

Or you may be overwhelmed with all the Margueriteness on this blog and couldn't stand to see anymore of me. In that case you can skip this post and go back to your happy life. :)

That's also my msn messenger.

AIM: Jael2413


So, now you know how to reach me! Yay!

LOL. At work, we must have a director's signature on all accident reports. We have to fill them out if we give a kid a bandaid, or ice or anything for a wound or injury that's all in their head but they're screaming about anyway. So today, I filled out about a half a dozen of them. And my boss has to sign them all day long.

So to switch things up, I decided to throw in a bit of drama. My boss was sitting watching soe of the folks play Madden football. So I walk over, and then start yelling, "Oh My Goodness!!!! It's Miss Steph!!!!" And going hysterical. It was lots of fun. So then I hand her the paper to sign, "Can I have your autograph!!!" Then one of my coworkers who doesn 't like me anyway, he's one of those one's who thinks I'm too smart or something, he starts going off on me. And he used improper language. So I told him to go refresh his memory of the Code of Conduct, somewhere around number seven it says "Avoid the use of improper language." I'd just had one of the kids read it. :P Actually, he wasn't one of our kids, he's a schoolyear kid, and he was visiting. Anyway, Mr. Football, told me he wasn't reading any stupid code of conduct. And I made a crack about his reading skills that I'll have to apologize for tomorrow. Anyway.....

That was my fun for the day.

Also, me and one of the other girls who works there have this week started to get along splendidly. The other staff has shown their true colors. And we're kinda in the same boat. Unfortunately she heads off to college this weekend and I won't see her again. Totally bummer.

oh, and josh had a water balloon that he was going to use on AO, when he came outside, so he's sitting in a chair talking about what he's going to do, and LP is sitting next to him with a pen. So he's scheming and she reaches over and pops the balloon all over him. It was really good, he had no idea it was coming and he was drenched. :D

Oh, and I have a book in my room at work with stories from shakespeare. On the front it has Titania kissing Bottom. Anyway my girls thought it was gross, too gross for me to even explain or read the story to them.

Good night!!

Tuesday, August 09, 2005

Ahem, I have an announcement to make.

I'm now an official college student. Or officially registered for all my classes. :D Yay!

I'm also an officially exhausted counselor. I'm going to bed.

Monday, August 08, 2005

um... reread the part of my post on why Christian guys should stand up for modesty.
I forgot something. Do guys realize that they, too, can dress immodestly? *coughdancough* the incident at the mailbox... cough cough...
Jason, Adam has been DonutGuy for ages, like three years or so. So, you lose. And no racial slurs please. You have no Idea Jason. And um, have you talked to Beth lately? Heh Heh. We live in the ghetto. And my phone isn't a verizon, it's a cheapo phone. :)
With the staying close to Papa thing, we only need our Papa's approval, not any guy's. But doesn't mean we don't want it.
Guys get in the rest of our business, and negatively in the clothing business, why not go positive? I know, let's all start wearing sheets. Then they'd notice and comment.... Of course there'd be a lot of teasing... See what I mean??? :P
Christine, that is a wise woman. but does that mean I should wear a mask? don't answer that. :P
another boy at work offered to give me a makeover... They can't leave well enough alone. If these boys are willing to get into my business, why can't any other guys? NOt that I'd let you guys pick my clothes anymore than I'd let them... :P

I took my math placement test tonight! It was freezing in the testing center. My fingers turned red and got stiff. I had goosebumps. I sat next to where I took my english test. The same lady was there, who I saw on saturday. (awful grammar) I used up three sheets of scratch paper.... And they had a calculator...

Oh, did you want to know how I did? I did better than average Barbara said. I was surprised, because I didn't remember some of the stuff at all, some I'd never heard of. But I did manage to make an honor's liberal arts math class. Unfortunately, I won't be taking it because they don't offer it my campus. Bogus. I could also take a precalulus class. But I don't think so since I have no clue what calculus is to begin with. I'm going to take either an Algebra class, or the Liberal Arts Math. I think the latter... but I like Algebra.... I don't know, I"m going to see a counselor this week... I'm going to take a history class also, An honors one, I can becasue I'm taking Honors English. Yay! It's the history of western civilization, or some such thing. I'm not sure what Science.... I don't have any classes on Thursday so far, so I can come to HSG!!!!! YAY!!!

I got a lot of sleep last night and it felt really nice..... I think I"m going to try that tonight.

Farewell Dear Hearts,
For I must needs be gone
Her Eyes do show her days are almost done...
But I shall never die!
Yeah Right, I lie.

Heehee, and three merry men.

Stand up Stand up For What You believe in believe in believe in God....

I think that Christian guys should stand up if they think that girls should dress modestly. The world is not afraid to say, "Hey wear that disgusting dress," or whatever. It's in songs all over the place. And yet Christian guys are all quiet about it. I mean our dads and all will encourage us. But when does a guy compliment a girl on dressing modestly. Other guys whistle in the mall, on the street, encouraging the girls to dress like that to get attention. But do Christian guys give girls who dress modestly any thumbs up or... Attention? I mean, we may dress modestly, but that doesn't mean we don't want attention. Just not the whistling on the street kind. Why should a girl have to dress like that to get attention?

I admit, it's harder to be friends with the guys at work than with the guys from HSG or church.
1) some of them I don't want to be friends with because they are so worldly. i.e. After findingout last summer that my mmom had a daughter 2 years his junior, he promptly askes if she's available. (Once he actually met me and got past that, He's actually ok, like he does his job and isn't completely stupid, doesn't tease maliciously, knows how to apologize.)

2) Some of them are just.... Not very smart, and lazy. And they, hmm, may be intimidated, because I know more than them? Because they act like they know nothing? I'm not saying they do know nothing....

There are the exceptions. Brandon and Josh are nice. My boss is the awesomest, Jeff watches out for other people. He's also grown up.... :P

Ok, sorry guys to be ranting on you. I'm not sure that you should be paying us all that much attention. Girls need to listen to their Papa.

In other news:

I took my English Placement Test for College.... And I did Very well and I'm completely psyched!! And I get to be in Honors English. yay!!

And I bought a cell phone. Beth bought one... kinda riled my dad 'cause she didn't ask. So I asked, and pointed out that I' m going to college and Mommy likes to drive my car. And he said yeah I could. So now.... I have a cell phone.

Jacob bought a pink shirt. It's cute.

The Mall used to have a "Breakfast foods" Playplace. It had Pancakes and waffles and bacob and eggs and sausages and fruit, all really big, for kids to crawl on. Well, they've gone on the Atkin's diet. They took out the Pancakes and Waffles.

We found our writing teachers books at the bookstore. They were on the Clearance shelf. We were crushed.

We went to the Mall last night. Without any money. That was weird...

My mom said I was weird last night because I was doing a "dance" that we did at camp to all teh techno songs. We were listening to techno music.

Today on the way to church, we say this guy in his car. He was rocking back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. In his car. While driving. The whole time we could see him. Like three minutes. We first spotted him going up a hill, and we thought maybe his car was weak , but then he kept it up going down the hill.... Strange folks in these here parts.....

I have a foam sticker stuck to my leg that says I am Bossy. Anastasia wrote it. There i took it off.

Hows abouts anotha song?? Hows abouts ah new ahtist?

By sanctus real

Yeah mister deeds has got you wrapped around his finger
With what you think you need to be delivered
You look for accidents so you can be the hero
You wrote the charity check that ends in double zeros
You help old ladies cross the street
You welcome homeless where you sleep
YOu give to everyone in need
You even hold a city key
Aren't you great?
But that's not good enough

If you don't have faith you have nothing at all
if you don't have deeds you faith will fall
They can't be true without eachother
You can't have one without the other

You think your faith is where
You sit on Sunday morning
You've got a front row seat
Where you can't be seen snoring
Throughout the week you
Live your life inside a bubble
You find your happiness
Avoiding peoples' troubles
Your life revolves around
Yourself, you don't treat
Others very well
You day your faith will get
You by and that you won't be
Left behind
You might be right, but that's
Not good enough

If you don't have deeds you
Have nothing at all
If you don't have faith your
Faith will fall
They can't be true without
Each other
You can't have one without
The other

You know I can't see thinking
That I'd be
Better off living just for
Selfish ambition, noI know that faith is more than
Just believing
We should do the right
Things, for the right reasons

Sanctus Real is Coming in October And I"M GOING TO SEE THEM!!!! YAY!

Saturday, August 06, 2005

I nearly repeated a headline. Golly.

Ok, I don't look at Barlow girl as having to be Christian. The song doesn't say anything about God. It's a rant on stupid fashions.
Will, my subjects seem related because at this point it's a bit of what's going on in my head.
I've been thinking lately... I'm glad I'm a Christian, because the world keeps on pushing me further and further away. If I weren't a Christian, I'd probably be dead. NOT that I'm suicidal! I know I'm not of the world and this stuff is Supposed to happen. I'm saying if I didn't know that, I'd be suicidal probably. Or a totally different person. wow, let's not even think about that.
Anyway, I adore beautiful clothes. But I don't like to spend so much money, so I"m a fan of thrift stores and walmart, the latter of which is not known for so much beauty. And thrift stores.... I like to dress up my sisters... :P Most of the stuff at the T-store isn't my size. :D
elisabeth, I love! that line about the models. I thought it was sooo funny. Welcome to my blog, btw. :D
Mella!!!! I ABSOLUTELY TREASURE YOUR COMMENTS!!!!! It's the best to come home from work and find that SOMEONE IS ACTUALLY READING MY BLOG!!! YAY!
Work has been hard this week. It's nice to have some people who actually know what I"m talking about.
You all know what a thesbian is, right?
And Will, Don't mind Jacob, he actually agrees with you more than it seems. (you do jacob, admit it) He just isn't as loud about it as you are. He should be. I don't understand the pull either, and I feel it. Weirdness. I mean, they do it to stand out, but it makes them look like every one else, if they dressed amish every day, Guys would notice them. But they don't want to be noticed that way. Some days I want to be "normal" so much I could cry. hmmmm.... My dad was talking about normal tonight.
He said that normal people follow the Lord. He doesn't know how wrong he is. normal people don't even go to church. Or they do, but they certainly don't follow the Lord... I didn't realize my dad was so sheltered....
Ok, time to go, tomorrow I have to go take tests. So I can go to college. Yay! First day of school stuff! ugh, I"m nervous. I did algebra 2 twice and I don't remember formulas or anything.... glug....

Thursday, August 04, 2005

lol. I don't have a problem with what my grandmother did. I mean she brushed her teeth and took showers. People don't have a problem with that. I don't have a problem with being different, and I'll call it courtship. hmm... About the middle ages, they do have their down side, but they're fascinating. Like robin hood and ivanhoe and all that lovely stuff. We had a Mideival Banquet thing for Homeschool group. That was a Whole lot of fun. I don't know if I could take no plates every day. Yeah I have to wash the dishes, I could take it.

At this point.... I'm not sure how I'd handle even courting. I mean there's the get my dad's permission thing, and the get to know the family too thing. But at the same time.... I'm out of highschool.... It's different. Like... I don't know, maybe it's me and my expectations changing... I know they have.

Mella, I read Clothes to Jacob. He didn't find it nearly as amusing as I did. I'm wondering if maybe the humor I saw was purely a girl thing. I mean the things I find funny are not in any way original, they're things the "Modest" say all the time. Any way, I'm going to post it here, so you can all decide for yourselves. :)

by Barlow Girl

Clothes aren't what they used to be
They don't seem to fit you and me anymore
Modesty is out the door
Flaunting what we've got and more is in
Yeah it's in

They're saying
Don't ask why just do what we say
You'll look like a model if you'll only obey
To get the attention, just do what we say

Pay so much for clothes so small
Was this shirt made for me or my doll?
Is this all I get?
I looked so hot but I caught a cold
I was doing just what I was told
To fit in

We're saying let's ask why
Don't wear what they say
Don't want to be a model
They can't eat anyway
that kind of attention will fade with the day
So I'll stand up and say

Clothes that fit are fine
Won't show what's mine
Don't change my mind
I'll be fine

I realized why the song sounds so familiar. Every time my sisters and I go to the mall, it's a game to make light of all the skimpy clothes. We don't go to the mall That often. Well, Anastasia and I don't, Bethany goes every week or so to stock up on Chucks.

And yeah, barlow girl doesn't have the greatest songwriter. They're pop punk, it's to be expected. But That wasn't the point :).

Ok, forgive me. But I found this song. And.... I've been having something of an identity crisis of late, and was ready to cry tonight, but it cheered me up. So here you are! :D

Average Girl
So what I'm not your average girl
i don't meet the standards of this world
Chasing after boys is not my thing
See I'm waiting for a wedding ring

No more dating
I'm just waiting
Life sleeping beauty
my prince will come for me
no more dating
I'm just waiting
'Cause God is writing my love story

Boys are bad, that's certainly not true
'Cause God's preparing one for you
If you get tired waiting till he comes
God's arms are the perfect place to run!

Sleep that's the only thing
For me 'cause when I sleep God's
Preparing one for me....

Ok, some of those lines just seem weird, but.... People think I'm weird, I don't mind being different, but this is different. And yeah, waiting is hard. Like you wouldn't believe. Guarding my heart isn't easy. I'm just thankful for the weekend to recover. Seventh day is good.

The song starts nice and with an attitude. Which sometimes I really wish I had. lol. Anyway. devos should start soon. I think I shall work on plans. Farewell my dear friends.

Shout out to Jason. Holla! er, yeah. yes porky I hear you. :)
