Phew. Just gave a speech about "The House on Mango Street," by Sandra Cisneros. I talked about "The Family of Little Feet" (one of the vignettes) and how the girls were role-playing with the high heels until the bum started hitting on them. I liked my speech title: "Little Feet Aren't Made for High Heels." It reminded me of the time I had to find high heels for my cousin's wedding (BAD memory!), and it was insanely hard to find heels in a size 2. There's a reason they don't make heels in kid sizes (they make platforms, but not heels... yet...). Yessireebob, I prefer my Powerpuff Girls shoes. At least they're comfy. And cute.

So, what's on the slab for today? Well, I have to do a bunch of poetry critiques (I don't mind cranking out a poem a week, I just get a bit stressed when I have 15 poems to critique and I can't do a good, thorough job if I wait until the last minute). Then there's laundry, poetry class, and I have the rest of the afternoon free. I think there's a showing of "Hamlet" tonight, so I need to see that. And I need to get some work done and WRITE WRITE WRITE. I'm going to need to hide the "Age of Mythology" cd-rom if I want to make it through finals with *some* of my mind still intact.

I was looking for pictures of Velma yesterday and found this. Needless to say, I just about drooled all over myself. Velma rocks my world! Of course, Velma's profile on the site is all wrong - she is NOT 5'5"! I found a profile on the Cartoon Network site somewhere (can't find it now) that says she's 4'9". I almost squealed when I saw that. Well, maybe Velma is smaller in cartoon form, and Linda Cardellini (she played Velma in the recent movie) is normal height... oh well.

    Now I'm picturing the most awkward conversation with a new person... Person: Hi! I'm person! Ade: Hi, I'm Ade. Person: Have you accepted Jesus…

    Time for another "year in retrospect" post. 2010 was actually a pretty good year for me, all things considered. In the middle of January, I adopted…

    Well, NaNoWriMo is over. In one way, I failed to meet my original goal, but I didn't fail epically, and I did make good progress. The original goal…
