I'm a hero for women everywhere - even if I'm a little scary.

^not answered truthfully




I'm A 1950s Geek
You're smart... and also slightly maniacal. There's just no hiding plots for world domination, sorry.

^truthful (i'm going to have to agree with the answer on this one)

you are violet

Your dominant hues are red and blue. You're confident and like showing people new ideas. You play well with others and can be very influential if you want to be.

Your saturation level is lower than average - You don't stress out over things and don't understand people who do. Finishing projects may sometimes be a challenge, but you schedule time as you see fit and the important things all happen in the end, even if not everyone sees your grand master plan.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

^truthful (violet, eh? who'd have thunk it?)

that's it. tech tomorrow. w00t. comments ARE working like a dream.

you want the pineapple, you need the pineapple

thanks to , there are now comments on my blog!! who wants to help test them out? (dibs on first)

oh, and by the way, if you would like an email everytime the bloggy is updated, just tell me and i can set that up. just post in comments or AIM me, or see me at school or something.

Ten Pounds of Happy in a Five Pound Bag

woooooooo buddy!!

i'm in a good mood (it might or might not be the gallon of mountain dew i just drank). come to think of it, i always seem to be happy. i don't let things get to me. i see a lot of teens get mad at many random things i just don't get. i don't get bothered if i don't understand something, and i'm not mad at my parents, and i'm not mad at the system. what kind of world is it when being this happy is weird? i used to get mad at silly little things, but now i shrug it off. heck, part of it is probably my transformation from Colorado Nathan to Illinois Nate. I was a very different kid in Colorado. i was an outcast in colorado. i had very little friends. i was focused in my studies all the time. i would play football during recess and nobody would ever pass to me. i was kind of sad then. i'm different now. i have lots of friends, i'm not afraid of girls anymore (ewwww!! cooties!!) and i'm just having fun living in the fact that i'm 16. i'm trying to get a job now. (emphasis on TRYING... bestbuy and compusa haven't called me back!! do they realize how much geek they are missing out on? i'm prime nerd material here!!) i don't look at that as a bad thing though. i always thought of getting a job as the worst thing i would ever have to do. now i WISH i had a job. mainly, i want a car of my own. and i want a license. it's something i'm gonna have to work at but i'm excited. i guess all this happiness is giving me a good life. i'm in a great house, eating great food, with great family, and great friends, and i'm ecstatic. people today don't see how good they have it. just look around. are you in a house? do you have food? do you have a family that loves you? do you have friends that love you? i guess all i'm trying to say is people need to lighten up, y'know? this is especially true in geneva. many people try to put on a front of not caring. "i'm too cool to care". it makes me sick. anyhoo, i think it's time for a and i'll move on, ok?

viking revue is gonna be teh shiz-nit!!! especially the underground techie radio!! oh, and a certain wardrobe malfuncion by a certain person... i'm on sound. go me. i think i'm finally figuring this stuff out. i'm still a spud techie, and working my way towards full pirate techie. meh. still gotta learn lights. i enjoy learning about the belly of the beast (and by beast i mean auditorium). ITS THE EYE OF THE TIGER!!!!*duh!!! duh duh duh!! duh duh duh!! duh duh duuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhh!!* i'm so amused. i especially like the baton twirler and the flaggies. mainy because i have the attention span of a field mouse, and the glitter amuses me greatly. i got the techies upstairs mad when i was singing along with the flaggy song.

anyways, i have a lot of time on my hands. i'm prob gonna play a lot of Final Fantasy VII right now, and prob a lot of AIM/MIRC. crazy reece has track AND baseball today after school. that kid has so much on his plate. this is his first year in high jump, and he is clearing 4'6" and he came THIS *pinches fingers together* close to clearing 4'8". and by THIS close i mean he has a really cool cut on his back from the bar from trying to clear 4'8". (reminder, reece is about 5'3" tall). meh, my dad is gone on business again, and he'll be gone all next week. it's tough having him gone all the time, but he's been doing REALLY well at his job. so one one hand, he's doing great for the company (just turned the company's biggest rival into a competitor... that's like if Burger King started selling Big Macs!) so i'm extremely proud of him. it's hard having his gone so much, but i'll get through it. he gets home tonight!!! that means kill bill this weekend!! (i hope). he's and assistant coach this year (a perfect postion for him) and he's upset that he misses so many practices. he's a good coach though, and he's really starting to understand the finer points of the game (with my help of course >.>)

so in summary: i'm happy, tech is fun, family is fine.

this has been my longest post ever. my fingers hurt.

oh, btw, (WTB!!!), i'm trying to get a comments system working, a la GJ but i don't know if i can find one for blogger. and no, i'm not switching over to GJ, though i might get an account there just for responding to the buddies.

heh... i just ate a sausage, egg, and cheese McGriddle with a hashbrown. i'm in heaven... Of course, i had to drive to McD's to get one, but it's well worth it.

yesterday my dad got home. he's been gone since monday in orlando on a business trip. that made me happy. then when i got home from school, i found out that the injured dog behind us (cut it's thigh, 11 staples, it's fine now) needed watching. reece and i, being the good samaritans that we are, watched the dog to make sure it didn't lick itself. fun fun. however, we were given free reign of the basement that includes

  • Big Screen TV

  • Surround Sound (5.1)

  • Recliner

  • 200+ DVDs (yes, two hundred plus)

  • Kool-Aid Jammers in the fridge (OH YEAH!!!)

  • so, we just watched fletch and italian job, then we each got $10 for it. huzzah!!!

    what did the scotsman do when he found he didn't have any pants?? HE KILT HIMSELF!!

    Geoffrey (Tailor) - Kiltmakers & Weavers

    for all your kilt needs

    boy, are my legs tired!!

    sadies were yesterday, SOOOOOOOO much fun.

    it started at about 4-ish when lissa and i went to old navy to get matching shirts. an hour later we walked out with some nice baby blue.
    we grabbed some chipotle tacos and chilled at her house til 8-ish when we went to the dance.

    the theme was the 80's and some people really dressed for the occasion. in other words, i'm happy i didn't live in the 80's. me and lissa danced soooooooooo much and it was sooooooooo fun. we constantly had big smilies on our faces and i loved it. the songs were interesting. a mix of 1980's (footloose, cyndi lauper, etc) with rap and a wee bit of techno. we even got a giant blake shake going with a song that i currently can't remember. we had about 10~15 people doing a synchronized blake shake. there was the cha-cha slide of course (it's a proven fact that ZERO males of the human race can "cha cha real smooth") and don't forget Stomp To My Beat. I was a little disappointed by a lack of Sandstorm, but the "I Like the Way You Move" to "Hey Ya!" made up for it. but really, i didn't mind what song was playing cuz lissa was there ^.^

    this might be the longest post i've ever done. w00t.

    oh, snap, the answer to the trivia question was "Nick Bakay"
    kinda forgot about that one...


    bloggy is going well, i'm not too sure about the theme though. if anybody has any suggestions, then by all means.

    the problem with the site randomly NOT loading has been fixed. it now works like a charm

    also, if you would like a XML Feed of the site, it is
    but i'll also put it on the side bar

    also, im a little bored by the name..... Gummy Bear On The Window.
    i'm open to any suggestion to the title AND the url. it's anything http://**** not too many have this site in their favorites anyways yet. just aim me or pm me if i'm on your forum with your ideas.

    Nate. Out.

    The Laporte Report: The People Have Spoken

    Leo is back on Call For Help!!!

    now for him to return to TSS!!

    whoa doggy!!!

    tech=teh crayzay!!!

    holy sheebees running one acts was fun. a little stressful, but fun. even when i knocked a chair off a platform accidentaly. Everybody laughed and i thought it was pretty funny too. I was happy that my first time running was with lissa... we make a really good team. Of course, while the actors left to get ice cream, the creatures of the night, *hint: techies* were stuck doing set strike and GUESS who got the honor of some couch duty AGAIN?? *sigh* twas fun. of course, steak and shake was full of batavians as opposed to the actors we were expecting. Since Lissa, Caroline, and myself were in the mood for ice cream (and liquid refreshment) we went to colonial. Guess who we saw there? THE ACTORS!!! actors of course had trouble figuring out money but at least they showered us with praise. *yay! attention!*

    anyhoo, today is the sadies *w00t* so me and Lissa gots ta go shoppin'! tonight's gonna be fun. but this morning/afternoon i gotta help with mulch. I hate mulch. I really do. The worst thing i could possibly do with mulch is spread it around. I mean, it's stinky... and it gets in my shoes!!

    This is groundhog, over and out
