Heroes and Villains...and Compiz and Podcasts.

I went to see Les Miserables this last Thursday! It was awesome! If you ever get the chance, go see it! I do, however, strongly recommend reading the book, first. It's an awesome story, and every time I've read it (and also now seen it!) it reminds me of how God's got everything planned out for us.

I also saw Iron Man at the Drive-Ins last Friday. It was a lot of fun, but I got randomly cold and commandeered a blanket formerly used by a couple sitting next to me (they had, for some strange reason *cough* gotten out of the car). The movie was awesome. The music was awesome. the effects were awesome! Seriously, I cannot find a stronger way to say how much I enjoyed it! It was so exciting! Mind you, I wouldn't take my little sister to see it...

I realised the other day that I have nice cheekbones. mind you I didn't notice until someone pointed it out to me. I was really happy, because one of the things I always admired in other people was defined cheekbones. As well as a defined jawline. It looks kind of hero-like. You know, I have never seen a picture of a hero without defined features like that. Usually the slightly classical baddies are more lumpy. Look at Darth Sidious and Frank Burns. Lumpy and chinless, the both of them. One massive contradiction, though, is Dick Dastardly from The Perils of Penelope Pitstop. In case you haven't guessed, that's the Dastardly one on the left there, himself. His chin is exaggerated over and above the call of duty. Maybe that's why he's a bad guy...his chin was too big so Hero Academy ditched him. Now he's after revenge, in the form of tying pink-loving cartoon blondes with over-the-top accents to rail tracks.

On another note, Compiz is awesome. I love it. In case you're wondering what compiz is, look here. There's information on it here too.

I'm listening to a podcast [discovered by my dad, who said I'd probably like it]. It's a teen linux one. It's really hard to concentrate on what I'm writing, so don't mind me if the rest of this entry makes no sense. It's a really odd-yet-awesome one...though it is technically a Linux one, but they've so far spent 40 minutes roleplaying and insulting each other. It's pretty funny. If they went to my school I'd have added a quarter of the stuff they've said to the quotes page. It's that kind of funny.


I think it's time to look at work again.

Or sleep.

Goodnight, sardines.


Here's an interview with Melissa Brock of Superchic[k]

I'm going to an 18th Birthday party with the theme "Rockstars," And I want to go as Melissa Brock. She's pretty awesome :)

Love, Elise

I had to post this!

This is one of my favourite movies of all time. The clip below is from one of my most favourite scenes...I hope you enjoy it too. :D

Here's the link! Go watch it ;)

I think I love this movie because it's ridiculously funny and just plain sweet. I love how Lyle gets paid back in the end, too. Very fitting, I think...

Time for me to do some work.

Happy surfing!

Love, Elise

Hoooold on your dreams! mmm yeah! [a confesion]


The soul purpose of this blog is for me to confess something to the world in general. here it goes.


I. Am. A. Nerd. Sort of.

I have accepted the fact! I'm no longer in denial! I realised this listening to ELO while drinking tea, wearing my glasses and reading some random article on OpenSource software. So now you know. Do you no longer love me? Does my nerdiness offend you and make you want to no longer sociallise with me? Are you going to ask me for homework help more often? Is your view of me forever changed?


I'm glad you still love me. I knew I could count on you.


`/()\_| \\()()|3

! |-|()|*3 `/()\_||2 5|-|()35 |= 411 4|*4|27 !!

yeah, take that. But I still love you anyway.

Hooray for glasses!

I'm proud of my new-found nerdishness.

Well, I shall return now to my ELO, tea and homework. With my glasses on. My awesomely cool glasses.

Love, Elise.


REMEMBER: Nerds = awesomely cool.
Dorks and geeks are two entirely different (and less awesome) bunches.

The Joys of Addons, Glasses and TV


Firstly, I have my glasses! Everything looks amazingly clear and...and...well, let me put it this way. think about a imperfectly tuned, slightly fuzzy analogue television. Now think about a giant plasma on a crystal clear High Definition channel. It's great! It's amazing! I've always been able to read, but now I have far less headaches, and measuring for TAFE and my art have all improved. I'm stoked!

Also. I upgraded to Ubuntu Hardy Herron. It's pretty cool. In fact, it's awesome!! I have scribeFire working with blogger through FireFox, which is also awesome. I love it!

I was just watching this thing about the Most Hated Family in America.They're pretty much a text-book cult. I can't believe it. They've taken an ounce of truth and torn it to shreds, twisted and warped it and made it completely unrecognisable and ...anti-everything that Christianity is founded upon (being God's love, mercy and grace). There's never a mention of Jesus. They're driving people away. Homosexuality may be a sin, but does God say "Thou shalt cast fire and brimstone upon thine sinful neighbour?" No! Au contraire. He says, "Love your neighbour as yourself." It's up to God to bring change to someone's heart: no matter how much we want to, we can't. The only thing we can do is live by grace and love and be like a light in the darkness. God's rules were set down to keep us healthy on the outside and pure and clean on the inside. If everyone followed the rules, it would be a much happier world. Leiderlich, this is not the case.

Anyway, back on topic. I feel sorry for the kids in that family who have grown up in that very closed-in society with that one opinion pummelled into them every day. Some people may say the same about me. However, I have made my decision on what I believe out of personal experience, as well as some study. I listen to other people's opinions and don't instantly trash them if they're different to mine. You can learn so much from listening to other people, as well sa gain a better understanding of the world you live in. One more thing that needs to be clear: you don't inherit a relationship with Jesus, you make it yourself.

Well, I need sleep. It's late-ish. All this bossing about of blog readers has made me tired.

Love, Elise
