Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. And, Okay, No Trains.

I just booked a flight for Nikki's wedding, which is only forty-five days away! (Don't panic, Nikki!) This will be the first time I have gotten on an airplane since 1999. I am a little wigged out by the prospect.

I'd originally planned to drive, but it turns out that right now, plane tickets are pretty cheap. So I managed to get a round trip ticket for the same amount I was planning to spend on gas, and that will save me two days plus hotel room fees coming and going. This time last year, even with all of that, it would have been cheaper to drive, but right now, it's actually cheaper to fly, and I said if that turned out to be the case closer to the day I would fly, and so...HERE I AM MAKING WITH THE WIGGING OUT.

I've also recently (as in, like, ten minutes ago) set up my phone with my Twitter account*. I could see Twitter getting really addictive really fast this way. So maybe I'll begin updating Twitter more. OR MAYBE I WON'T. I DON'T KNOW. Either way, if you aren't following me yet (and I don't know why you aren't, with tweets hitting you as fast as four months apart, you're really missing out), I'm...wait for it..."kandigurl" on Twitter. I KNOW IT IS VERY CREATIVE AND CLEVER.

Seriously, The Internet, I didn't need another thing to be obsessed with. Calm down with the incredible social networking capacity, already.

*The desire to do this may or may not have something to do with one John Green having a Twitter account that he uses to alert people when he'll be hosting a live Internet show...

Guys, I am listening to the archive of John & Hank on Pottercast, and they are going on and on and on about unicorns and how lame they are, and now I totally, totally want to write a book about unicorns.

Why Soda is Bad For You - By My Little Sister

So my mom made my little sister write a paper on why soda is bad for you. The results are SHEER HILARITY. I love this paper so much. Seriously. SEE IF YOU CAN PICK OUT THE TWILIGHT REFERENCE.

"Whenever you go to a popular fast food resturant or a mexican resturant or a mongolian stir fry resturant or any kind of resturant, you always want a drink to go with your delicious meal. There are many things to choose from, like Sprite, Dr. Pepper, Root Beer,(and no, it is not alcoholic), Coke and Fanta Orange. What do all of these tasty drinks have in common? They are all classified as the kind of drink called S-O-D-A.
Sure, all of these sodas taste good, but like Transformers, there is more to them that meets the eye."
