ShayCarl suggested a yurt because it was a word that started with the letter y in a really old video.
I HAD ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what a yurt was.
This is what wikipedia told me:
A yurt is a portable, felt-covered, wood lattice-framed dwelling structure traditionally used by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia. A yurt is more home-like in shape and build, with thicker walls than that of a tent. They are popular amongst nomads.
Traditional yurts consist of a circular wooden frame carrying a felt cover. The felt is made from the wool of the flocks of sheep that accompany the pastoralists. The timber to make the external structure is not to be found on the treeless steppes, and must be obtained by trade in the valleys below.
The frame consists of one or more lattice wall-sections, a door-frame, roof poles and a crown. Some styles of yurt have one or more columns to support the crown. The (self-supporting) wood frame is covered with pieces of felt. Depending on availability, the felt is additionally covered with canvas and/or sun-covers. The frame is held together with one or more ropes or ribbons. The structure is kept under compression by the weight of the covers, sometimes supplemented by a heavy weight hung from the center of the roof. They vary regionally, with straight or bent roof-poles, different sizes, and relative weight.
A yurt is designed to be dismantled and the parts carried on camels or yaks to be rebuilt on another site.
Hmmm…. I didn’t bother to read any of this. Besides the first paragraph… or stanza. This isn’t a poem, Joanne! I’ll say paragraph. Or stanza. I can’t make up my mind.
I am insanely inlove with this song. I can’t stop listening to this, besides a couple other bands. Like mother mother, said the whale, and the airplane song by b.o.b., lotus child, and plants & animals.
Nom nom nom nom nom.
Also, it’s the first day of freedom! No work today. Haha, I didn’t get out of bed until 3. I should try going to sleep earlier and stop late night snacking on instant oodles of noodles.
What day do we have to go back to school for report cards? The things I ponder about. But really. When?
getting stoked for shopping in europe. just checked out the topshop uk site. they got tons of awesome (and slightly quirky) stuff right now. HELLZ YEAH. its gonna be awesome.
EMMASECKEL, you are just evil for going to europe. You and Adam should reenact the episode of “Elementary, My Dear Stacy”. You guys should read all the Sherlock Holmes stories and meet up with the Agent Double-0 0. And the fact that P and 0 0 spells “oop”. Then make a waterslide at Big Ben.
I love how I just woke up, I’d say.. Maybe like 5 minutes ago, and I’m like yay! First day after exams! Let’s go to the beach!
I then open the curtains… WTF!!! Are you serious? It’s friggin’ cloudy. No way no way.
So I’m just going to upload this picture of cheese because I have had (← That ain’t grammatically correct, eh? Oh well. :D) , well I’ve loved cheese since like grade 4. From the posters, to the insane cheese shoelaces on my black converse hightops. Oh he was a cool lactose intolerant chocolate milk enthusiast. Enthusiast sounds a bit much. Oh, ok. Just a lover. He was cool.
I still think that this is my gchat picture. Haha yeah! It is. It’s been like what, 6 years?
