i'm going away for a while, but i'll be back

so i just finished packing for florida and... i need a new wardrobe. desperately. everything i have has either been worn a million times and i am sick to death of it or it doesn't fit me thanks to my new found marriage fat. (this was going to be a post on its own, but i never got around to writing it. basically, everyone in my family - and i'm talking sisters, cousins, aunts, etc - gains weight after marriage. i don't know what it is about us, but i don't like it.) i will be leaving early tomorrow morning, and there is a high chance that i won't be blogging for the next week. hopefully, though, i will come back with a fresh brain that is capable of writing posts that are worth reading.

in my absence, please enjoy this medley of random links and videos.

>>i know that clips of the mickey mouse club are pretty much everywhere since it was where a whole bunch of actors and singers got their start, but this clip of ryan gosling, justin timberlake, and jc whatever his last name is, in my opinion, hilarious. i find the dance thing they do at the end especially funny.

>>remember recess (the cartoon)? well, this class remade the theme song with real people. aside from the fact that the elementary students are suddenly old, i think it's pretty awesome.

>>i thought this was a nice mash-up of the killers' somebody told me and the gorillaz feel good inc. both of which are songs you should listen to if for some reason you never have.

>>this poem, called the cold within, is worth a read. it tells a lot about the way of the world/society.

>>if you're on any other social media sites, you have probably seen the "shit girls say" videos. just in case you haven't, though, you can watch episode one here and episode two here. i have to admit that, stereotypical as this is, i actually do some of these.

>>this amazing fact generator is a great way to procrastinate (in case you were looking for one) and get smarter at the same time. a win - win situation.

>>i found this article interesting about how smartphone cameras are gaining popularity. now 1/3 of all pictures taken are with phones.

oh, and my professor finally posted my grade, officially ending my masters degree, but still no word from mason about the phd program. grr.

also, i was wondering. do people still go caroling these days? if you do or know people who do or see people who do, let me know.

    1st was going to be you guys suck for deserting me ...but now its you suck! omg thanks a lot... sisters get fat after only have one sister who got married...and you're calling me fat?! on your blog?! i hate you!!!!! :'(

    and his last name is chavez

  2. *huggleses anon hippo* you no be fat hun. I think your sister forgot to proof before posting :p

    And gone through all your links and am now bored... so please return to the blogsphere and post again.

    And that poem was awesome!!!!!

  3. anonymous hippopotamus: i did not call you fat. i said that everyone in my family gained weight after marriage. gaining weight does not mean fat. gosh. plus, i gave you an excuse for the arab mentality questions: genetics.

    and thanks.

    Hannah: i'm exhausted right now. who would have thought that sitting in a car for fourteen hours would be so tiring? but i'm hoping that, since i have good internet, i'll post a couple of times this week. if i have time in the mornings/nights, that is.

    What the hell is wrong with you???

  5. I did think twice before I posted that pic .. now that I come to think of it .. it looks all disoriented.

  6. anonymous hippopotamusDecember 26, 2011 at 10:32 PM

    Sarah: gained weight...fat its all the same. you're so mean! and guess who else just recently called me fat??? a certain husband of a certain sister in law. :'(

    Hannah: Awww thanks!! I wish you were right lol

  7. You aren't!! (not if this is who I think this is on FB - If there be any other sisters I might be wrong >.>)

    Yeah.... defo not fat.

    And gained weight doesn't equal fat... you could have gained two pounds or summin... wouldn't make you fat

  8. anon hippo: stop being so sentsitive. you're not fat. sheesh.

    oh, and anonymous, just in case you were wondering, i deleted your comments, not blogger. you went from being mildly entertaining to crass and offensive. i'd appreciate it if you learned some commenting etiquette before commenting again. also, insulting my family is not cool. insult the blog/writing/anything of me i put on here to your heart's content, but if you want to go further than that then stop taking the coward's way out and put your name so i can return the favor. please and thank you.

  9. Anonymous: um, i meant i deleted your comments on THIS post. i still think that you've been deleting the other ones (and this latest) to make yourself look cool. it's not working.

  10. anonymous hippopotamusJanuary 4, 2012 at 2:22 PM

    man! i missed a comment from anonymous?! well that just sucks... lol

  11. i'm not deleting any comments at all. i've already lost my train of thought, i'll be back!
    i know exactly why you deleted the comment(s). it's obviously the best way to hide guilt and the false personas you're trying to hide. an apple does n't really fall far from the tree.

  12. anonymous hippopotamusJanuary 9, 2012 at 10:34 AM

    hmm soo anonymous claims to know the tree interesting. And if anyone is hiding its you...why not man up and let us know who you are?

  13. That "tree" will break if I were to open up.

  14. Anonymous, sometimes (read: most of the time) you really confuse me. what is that even supposed to mean?

  15. anonymous hippopotamusJanuary 13, 2012 at 2:45 PM

    apparently he doesn't understand what he meant, and that tree actually refers to our parents.

  16. anonymous hippopotamusJanuary 13, 2012 at 3:11 PM

    :S its saying i commented at 11:45 and its 3. :S

  17. yeah i noticed the times are messed up. i dunno what's wrong with it cause the time settings are right and in those it shows the right time. i'm guessing it's just some glitch.
