Quotation Marks For Proper Titles

Some people just won't get off my case, will they? And yes, I remember a couple months ago when I asked y'all to keep on my case. So bonus points to those few who stuck to their guns. Funny fact: now that "Paramount Canada's Wonderland" in just plain old "Canada's Wonderland" all the rides named after Paramount movies have been renamed. And not good names either. "Top Gun" is now "Flightdeck". *eshudder* I need to go to Canada's Wonderland this summer. Gotta ride "Behemoth"! Canada's biggest steel coaster? Am I right in assuming that? I think I heard that somewhere...

I remember going to Marineland once. Rachel was really really young. Like ride-in-stroller young. So it must have been at least five to six years ago. And they had the greatest roller coaster I had ever seen. "Dragon Mountain". "Canada's longest steel roller coaster". Marineland probably hates Canada's Wonderland now. Because, really, who goes to just see the belugas anymore? I feel bad for those whales. Such big animals. Such tiny tanks...

Super Battle Tank 2. David owns that game for our Super Nintendo. It's terrible - we never play it. Subsequently, that was the last game David bought for our Super Nintendo. I have a credit card now. That's not a good thing. Ebay is about to take all of my money. All of crazy rare and expensive Super Nintendo games. And Amory War comic books. And something else. I can't remember what though. And there's no stopping to think about it now...

Gotta take everything one step at a time these days. No more trying to do everything all at once. And no more doing little pieces of different things at different times either. Just one thing, finish it, then move on. Well, except for music. That's just sort of on the side. Although, I have already said many times that I do art on the side. So i suppose that would place music on the side of the side. Or, maybe that means music has gone full circle, and is now sitting on my left hand side...

Kelly Clarkson. I can still never truly appreciate her, because she was a part of that cesspool of television entitled "American Idol". In fact, she's probably one of the main reasons it succeeded so well. I can't ever truly appreciate Chris Daughtry either. Maybe if he had had the brains to at least make his group name something other than his own name. Then maybe I could have forgotten his connections to the cesspool. I need a new group name. I need disconnection from the cesspool. But the only good one's I've thought up so far are "The Jade Fragrant Methadone" and "The Tobias Project". But the first one sounds more like a song title than a group title. And the second one does not disconnect. Input?

I don't think my Mactop has an input key. What's an input key? Running out of steam. Too distracted by conversations and Kris Van Soelen. Which is never a good thing. This one did not come out quite like some of my other ones. But it's not bad. It's progression. Progression is a basic part of life. Life is an amazing cereal. Except I can seem to get the right amount of milk on it. The sogginess is never quite right, because all I seem to taste is the milk, not the cereal. It's like I'm supersaturating the Life. Chemistry was fun in grade 12. I don't know how I ever managed to get such a good mark, I was easily the dumbest one in the group. Not to mention that we distracted Miss Campbell at least once every single class. She's married now, and Mr. Templeton is coming to Guelph. Which is where I am staying for next year. Templeton is the rat from "Charlotte's Web". We got our VHS copy of that movie from McDonalds, back when McDonalds gave out movies (can you remember those times? I can. I only ever got milk with my Happy Meals. Didn't like pop, it was too unhealthy. I wish I could be more like my younger self again...) We also got "The Land Before Time". The original one. IE: the only good one. I totally called that they would eventually make one that involved an ice age. Which is ridiculous. But they did it. The new "Ice Age" movie is going to be all about dinosaurs. "Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs". I suppose Hollywood writers don't need to be very fluent in basic science or history. Maybe I don't belong there. Maybe I can bring change to that world, make it a better place. We also got "Wayne's World" from McDonalds. Excellent movie. Shame what happened to the actors though...

I think I just de-progressed a little...

I love your ADD posts.
Why is Templeton going to Guelph now?
And I always associated him with Sandra Templeton (who later marries Ed Bloom) from Big Fish, randomly.
I don't remember McDonalds giving out free VHS's, but I remember those Disney compilation discs. Man, Happy Meals suck now.

He's getting his PhD in super math or whatever. And I still haven't seen Big Fish in it's entirety. Shame on me.

Soon, Maddy. Soon.

i was actually surprised that i remembered that mcdonald's gave out free vhs's

and i remember the ride at marine land. i think it was the first roller coaster i went on.

"back lot stunt coaster" you can't be serious?!

that is definitely the worst name of a ride i have ever heard.
