Geeking Out.

Have you heard the news?



Fine, I'll just tell you.


Some of you may be thinking, "And why is this such a big deal?"

Well I'll tell you. By purchasing Lucasfilm, Disney has now acquired the film rights to...

...Wait for it...


It is too early to tell, but this may be either super epic, or the worst thing in the history of the galaxy far away.

Because they have annouced that they are going to make a new Star Wars movie, set after Episode 6.

And this is where I geek out. I really like Star Wars. I'm not a total die-hard fan, but I know the basics. I've seen the movies, played the games. So the next chapter? This could be awesome, especially the special effects.

On the other hand, I'm slightly wary. Even though the movie will supposedly be set about 30 years after Return of the Jedi, they probably won't have the same actors. Which sucks. Also, I hope it isn't cheesy. Or lame.

Okay, geek out over. Resume your everyday lives. Until next time.

Weather, the Supreme Annoyance.

Weather is annoying. (I think it does it on purpose.)

"Why," you may ask, "Is weather annoying?"

That is a very good question. And the answer to that question is that it never does what it is supposed to. For example, take a look outside. What is the weather doing? Now log onto a weather website and look up what's it supposed to be doing. See? Annoying.

(Uh, for those of you whose outside weather matched the forecast, good for you. Please disregard the rest of this rant.)

Big storms in particular are especially irritating. Like hurricanes. And tomato's, er, tornado's. Now I don't mind rain. I like thunderstorms, and watching the lightning. But when a storm gets so big that it's killing people and being extremely destructive, that's when I really want to put my foot down.

But it doesn't work that way.


All we can do is be ready for stuff like that. As Scar would say, BE PREPARED!!!!

So yeah. That's about it. Stay safe, east coast. We're thinking of you.

Miranda out.

Why Palindromes Rock My Socks.

Hi. It's me. First Blog post. Yippie. Okay, palindromes. I love 'em.


Some of you may be asking, "What the heck is a palindrome?"

Well, that is an excellent question. A palindrome is a word or phrase that is spelled the same forwards and backwards. Take for example, the term race car. Now here it is spelled backwards: race car.

See what I mean? You just can't go wrong with a word that's spelled the same both ways.

Here are some more:

lion oil

nurses run





Can you think of any more? Tell me! (Feel free to google it. That's what I did.)

By the way, did you know that someone who really likes palindromes is a palindrome emordnilap?

No, not really. But that would be hilarious, no?

Well, I must go now. Goodbye. Until the next piece of Mirandomness!
