Multi-Genre Paper

Happy Easter imaginary legions of fans I pretend I have!
To celebrate today, I'm going to eat an entire box of Peanut Butter Smidgens and then take a nap.

I have just spent the last week or so writing a multi-genre paper for a class I don't even really like. The subject is supposed to be "Teaching Writing", but I think we all know you can not "teach" someone to write, you can just guide them through the writing process. Anyway, I ended up doing this whole big report based on Kurt Vonnegut and his "Eight Rules for Writing Short Fiction." I worked quite hard on it, but my professor will most likely find something horribly wrong with it and decide I fail. I will, in turn, bitch and moan quiet but say nothing because she is also my professor for next semester and I want to get my masters as painlessly as possible.

This is my life right at this very moment. Hopefully, something better will happen soon and I can tell all you imaginary people about that.

 Anyway, to celebrate today here is an awesome video about the Easter Bunny

Ordinal Linguistic Personification

So I was looking up Synesthesia the other day, because I was convinced that I had it. While on Wikipedia, I figured out what this "neurologically based phenomenon" I have is called. Anyway, I have a definition.

Ordinal linguistic personification: a form of synesthesia in which ordered sequences, such as ordinal numbers, days, months and letters are associated with personalities.

Anyway, I was reading about it on Wikipedia, and all the reports that are on the sight are wrong.

1 is a loner girl
2 is 1's only friend and a boy
3 hates 1 but is in love with 2 and is a girl
4 is 3's friend, but she can't stand him.
5 is 4's pushy older brother
6 is friends with 5 and is a pretty cool guy
7 and 6 are best friends, but 7 can't understand why 6 hangs out with 5
8 is friends with 7 and 6 and he's a pushover
9 is dating 8, but she's very controlling. Nine can't stand 3, but 3 follows 9 around like a lost puppy. She also has a crush on 6, but 6 doesn't want anything to do with her
10 is 9's older sister, they are both bitches but 9 looks up to 10 while 10 can't stand 9
11 is friends with 10, but doesn't understand why she is such a bitch
12 and 11 are dating. They are an artsy couple. 12 is the boy and 11 is the girl.

From there, the numbers are pretty similar to the last number in their sequence. Expect 20 is like 2, 30 is like 3.

I can also do this with letters, days of the week, and months of the year.

Does anyone else have this?
