Shop Rat — July 31, 2015

Shop Rat

I saw there were new season 3 Shopkins at the store. After this crazy week I deserved some. I bought myself 2 baskets. I’ll open them later.

I saw the new Monster High Boo York Boo York it was a nice 3 pack, but there were no stands, brushes or accessories. Just 3 dolls. I fell in love with the Mouscedes King doll.  She’s cute! I’d love to dress up as her. Her father is the Rat King. It made me think of 30 Rock and the episode “Jack Meets Dennis”.

I really wanted a 64 box of crayons, but they were sold out so I got a 48 count box instead of the Crayola brand. I couldn’t pass up 25¢ Cra-z-art crayons and 50¢ markers of the same brand.

I’m saddened by the passing of the wrestling legend Roddy Piper.

The Definition of “Over” — July 30, 2015

The Definition of “Over”

I was awoken to some much needed rain.

Too bad Wordgirl is ending. It was one of the few current PBS Kids shows I liked.

Then I was thinking about how I want to buy my books for school. Should I get them in person or online.

I looked all my professors on the ratemyprofessors website. The one for the secret elective has no ratings they aren’t even listed for the school! I guess they are a new comer. The other 2 have good ratings, but I can’t judge until I meet them. My Poli Sci teacher did too and I didn’t particularly like her.

I’m living on my neighbor’s schedule due to her playing loud music.

Looking up or Looking down? — July 29, 2015

Looking up or Looking down?

Things for school look pretty good right now. I checked on the school website. But I’m not sure. Then the school website was having problems, so I couldn’t even contact anybody.

I noticed on Rockapella’s facebook page that Sean Altman liked the comment I made to the nostalgia teaser post. Should I thank him? Or would I just look like a suck up? Until I realized Sean liked everybody’s comment on that post. None the less thanks Sean! ^-^

I need to really start shopping for school supplies. I should shop my room first.

Do it Rockapella! *points to sky* — July 28, 2015

Do it Rockapella! *points to sky*

After I took that break I feel really peaceful. Ok not totally, but way less stressed out than I was before. Since finding that vitally important thing is not as important since I’m taking a break.

After I thought about it for some reason I feel a lot like Phil Tandy Miller from the show The Last Man on Earth I mean with the fellow hobbyists.

Rockapella was teasing about doing something nostalgic. I was hoping Greg would be involved. Too bad. He’s probably performing with the Tokens show. Well it’s good for nostalgia’s sake.

There was an Edward Snowden parody (not with Rockapella current or former members) and now the El Chapo parody. Which elusive real world criminal is next? Is there going to be a whole series of these? But a World lineup Rockapella singing this is not bad! Now where is my trip to anywhere in North America?

You know what I want to buy on a whim? Crayons! I had some but they were bits and broken pieces I threw them out when I moved. Since they are on sale for back to school anyway 1 box wouldn’t hurt.

I realized I had more money saved up than I thought which would probably cover driving lessons with some possibly left over. That I could put towards my secret hobby. I’m not gonna worry about hobby funds.

Relax Your Mind — July 27, 2015

Relax Your Mind

I just need another long break from my hobby I’m gonna fill up my time with writing, dolls, and old game shows. And hopefully get my sanity back. What little of it I have left.

I think I’ll take a vacation to Nerdo Crombezia. That’s the fake country from Match Game.

Plus it’s really straining the relationship between my mother and I. She was ready to kick me out and no hobby is worth that. Most of these people are older than my parents and have big houses to store all their stuff.

Cooking Self Esteem — July 26, 2015

Cooking Self Esteem

So I watched the movie Julie and Julia. The movie was ok. Not that I really loved it or anything. I don’t know the 2 stories were kinda hard to follow for me.

I understand how she got all wrapped up in her blog and trying to cook all the recipes. And drove herself crazy. It made me feel like how I’ve been treating my secret hobby. If I don’t watch out I’m gonna drive everybody around me nuts!

Then I was thinking about how I attempted trying to make an omelet like she did in one of her cooking shows. And my dad got mad because I wasn’t making it fast enough or right. So after that I made up the “no cooking” rule  for my dad. I refuse to cook him even the simplest of foods not even toast! He’s just gonna criticize it anyway.

Seriously keep me out of the kitchen! I’ve had quite a few mishaps in there. Luckily I have not lost any appendages.

Nobody really likes to eat the food I make anyway. I usually cook for myself. Perhaps I should work on my cooking self esteem?

When Barry Carl was playing Mrs. Pumpkinklanger Was he trying to do a Julia Child type voice? I could get the PBS connection. It’s just so funny to hear him talk in falsetto. It’s funny because he was the bass of Rockapella. He had the deepest voice he was not a tenor.

This has nothing to do with the movie I saw but in the past 3 weeks UTB has messed up the 10:30-11AM airings of Detective Conan The first time they didn’t show it at all! The next week when I was trying to watch it an EAS test came up The week after that the show cut off before it finished it was a blank screen for a least 10 minutes.

George’s Horses: Snoopy and Prickly Pete — July 25, 2015

George’s Horses: Snoopy and Prickly Pete

It’s nice to see Converse redesigning their shoes. I was thinking about somebody who used to wear those shoes a lot. Anyway I like to write to this person and I was planning to write them an email about how I’ve been frustrated with my secret hobby. I had previously told them that some of the other hobbyists I talk to give me plenty of material. This person is a writer too so they understand what I’m talking about.

I just need a breather.

Anyway I thought about it with the 3 classes I signed up for if I do get back to school. Even if I do have to start from scratch I don’t mind I don’t want to be a journalist. I’ll see a counselor later since I would be taking no classes related to my major anyway this semester.

Those hobbyists are so bossy! With big egos to boot! Egos the size of Jupiter. That is a pretty huge thing. Anyway I was told to change my major the audacity of them!

The hobbyists don’t like that I’m doing it differently. So I might not be good with the other aspects of the secret hobby, but after I thought about it the answer was in my face all along! Writing! I come from a writing hobbyist background, so that makes me a little different in how I approach it.

When I have to clean I hope I don’t lose the new thing I bought. I already lost the important thing I really need that is driving me nuts cause I lost it. Seriously I tore apart my closet to find that thing. (and still haven’t)

*screams in blog*

See? You didn’t have to hear the screaming. It’s implied.

Then my mom found out that I lost that thing and she made a big deal out of it. She wondered why I needed that thing and why was it so important, but I didn’t want to say.


*bangs head against wall*

She told me I’m not on Finders Keepers. (nice retro reference there.)

So I still look like I’m not doing anything about my hobby. And it was bothering me until I thought about George Costanza and what he would do in a situation like this. Obliviously he would resort to a crazy scheme. (the blog title is a reference to this) Two years ago I did another George Costanza scheme.

“The Jerk Store called…”

So my dad wanted to meet some celebrity. But he didn’t do any research about the event besides reading about it in the newspaper. He didn’t know what you needed to do, if he had to buy anything, or even if he needed to line up early. If I had done that he would have yelled at me. It was a good thing I didn’t go, and well I didn’t wanna. It was no celebrity I was interested in.

Brick House Pig — July 23, 2015

Brick House Pig

This blog entry has nothing to do with the Commodores’ song “Brick House”.

After I thought about it I’m approaching my secret hobby very much like the brick house pig from The 3 Little Pigs. Remember that pig was made fun of by the 2 other pigs for taking his time to work on the brick house instead of hastily putting together a house of straw or sticks/wood (depending on the version you hear)?

This cartoon is one of my favorite versions. I did manage to find a copy of the 3 Little Pigs cartoon on video in 2011 I think? That was before I had fast internet and could watch videos on youtube. I just want to mention that when I was a kid I watched that 3 Little Pigs cartoon so much I practically memorized the dialogue.

I screen capped the frame they seemed to use for the video box.

I even used a picture of the mother pig for a Mother’s Day card for my mom. (she likes pigs)

So I found the supplies to do one thing, and I made it. I don’t know it doesn’t look right. :/Anyway I did find something for the hobby at the thrift store. That thing I bought was also on sale! Things are looking up for me hobby wise…possibly? I should not be trying to throw money at the problem, but maybe that thing I bought was just the thing I needed to get myself out of the dumps. Once I find my other supplies I’ll show them! I’ll show them all! *laughs maniacally*

I know I’m under unneeded stress I’m having stress dreams about the hobby. I think I need to stop for a while. Or perhaps I shouldn’t read buzzfeed before I go to bed. (I was not reading an article related to my secret hobby)

I saw these pencils at the Walmart. I saw them in the back to school circulars in the newspaper it might have been a Walmart paper might not have been. All I can say is “A throwback to Yikes pencils!?”

I was looking for beef sandwiches and sausage breakfast biscuits. But they didn’t have any. 😦

I did have some luck in the toy section there. I found the My Little Pony set with Babs and Apple Bloom. I don’t need another Apple Bloom It was about $5 not including tax. Which comes to about the same price as buying 2 blind bags. Plus I got that cute little table accessory. They also had the Applejack and the Cider machine playsets. The Bin’s Toy Bin video review was very good. I think I’ll review mine later.

The toy sections of Target and Walmart are being cleared out for stocking the Christmas toys which happens in October. They had POP Ponies on sale, but they were not as big of a value as the $2 ones at the 99¢ store. The packs with 2 POP Ponies were $10 on sale. There were also the Wild Rainbow Cutie Mark Crusaders stuff on sale, but the price wasn’t slashed that much. It was only like $1 off the toy. I’m looking for deeper discounts.

And Take Your Time, The World’s not Going Anywhere — July 22, 2015

And Take Your Time, The World’s not Going Anywhere

The title today is a lyric from the No Doubt song “Blue in the Face”.

Then I was thinking what if I’m not really meant to the secret hobby and I’m just fooling myself? Am I writing about being worried about being a fraud too much? Has this notion consumed me? And my thoughts? Ok so I found one thing I need. I still need to find more stuff. Now I all need is the “pièce de résistance” still. I’ll show them!

I had this crazy dream about this girl I was friends with in high school and I introduced her to my former speech professor. She told me she didn’t like him because he was too wacky or something like that.

I think I was thinking about her because I visited recently. I got an email from the site. That made me realize 2 things. 1; the email address I used to sign up for that website is very old. 2; does anybody even use that website anymore? Or was it usurped by social media?

Does anybody remember the tv show?

I don’t like to visit websites like or school groups on facebook and stuff because it just makes me realized how little I’ve accomplished in my life. After I realize it I feel “weird”. I can’t really describe how I feel.

I got Nothing to say, I got Nothing to Prove — July 21, 2015

I got Nothing to say, I got Nothing to Prove

The title is from a Jeffries Fan Club song. I think I used this title for an old myspace blog.

That Buzzr channel is trying to ignore the fact that the fans of the channel are upset. They removed some of the comments from their facebook page. If I only get 3 weeks new episodes and 1 week repeats then people will figure out the pattern and stop watching.

I went online looking if any Halloween stores were hiring, but I think I’m too early.

I was thinking about my forms I turned those in on the June 4th I remember because that was the day I asked my speech professor for a hug. That was 8 weeks ago! Processing is supposed to take 6 weeks. Maybe processing is congested or something?

I’m so pissed because I have the time to work on things for my secret hobby, but I cleaned up and can’t find the supplies to work on them. And now it looks like I’ve been doing nothing to the other hobbyists. They are getting on my case. My mom is mad at me because all I seem to care about is finding the supplies. It’s a vicious cycle. That was like the one thing I really wanted to do over the summer. Perhaps I need another break from the hobby? X0X

The more and more I think about it the less and less I care about selling on ebay.
