Free Willy! I mean, Rice!
OK, so I got sent this
e-mail, from Ideal Bite (a cool, green living newsletter thing), and in
the one for today, they had Free Rice, which is a vocabulary game, that
for every one you get right, they donate 20 grains of rice. Which really
isn't much, but it's a really addictive game. It's not easy either. It
gets harder as you get them right, and easier as you get them wrong.
They had crazy words that I had never heard (argillaceous apparently
means clay-like), and words that were pretty easy (a fen is a marsh).
and apparently I haven't posted, like, anything about what's actually
going on in my life. I've decided I'm going to do photography. I've
convinced my mother to help me pay for a $700 camera. I'm taking 2 photo
classes next semester at Santa Monica College. And I cannot possibly be
more excited. I think what I fully want to do, long term, is Set
Photography. I want to be the person who runs around on set taking
pictures of people, getting paid by the promotional people to get the
shots and still of the actors and the director and the camera to be
published in Entertainment Weekly or some other magazine, or a press
kit, or even in a behind the scenes package on the DVD. I'd get to work
with cool people, but not actually have to deal with telling them what
to do or get in their way, or babysit them!
in other news, some of my family is coming to visit for Christmas. My
parents are coming in on Saturday, as is Kim (my dad's little brother
through Big Brothers) and his wife and step-son, Yolanda and Stephen.
Jessica is leaving for Singapore on Thursday, and she is crazy sick
right now, and freaking out. We don't have a heater that works worth
anything, so we're both more susceptible. The heater is in the wall, and
heats the apartment upstairs nicely and the 3 square feet around it. So
we haven't even turned it on this year.
Question of the Day: What are your Christmas plans?
