Snowflake Season Day 21 and My Weird-O Dreams


I had three of the weirdest dreams ever last night.

First I dreamed that we were going to Utah for Christmas. So I asked Mom, "How long are we going to be in Utah for?" and she said "2 hours" and I said, "Isn't it kinda silly to drive for 6 hours and then only stay in Utah for 2 hours?". And she said "NO, we're going for 2 hours!" And I said "Whatever" (cuz you know how much I like the word, even in my sleep).

Then I dreamed we were on our way to Utah. We has to ride in a big leaf boat, cuz the whole way there was a big ocean. You didn't have to paddle the leaf boat to make it go, but if you stood up and leaned your weight from foot to foot you went faster, but only I could do that cuz I was sitting in the back. And there was this BIIIIIIIG, tsunami-sized wave coming toward us
(except it was to our left) and even though I knew it would help us go faster, in that crazy dream-logic way, I wanted to get as far as I could before the wave picked me up (my family was on the leaf boat, too, but they weren't talking so I forgot they were there) so I leaned as fast as I could, and then the wave got there (cuz somehow now it was behind us insted of to our left) and threw us WAAAAAAAY up in the air and we fell back down on the snow. And in that crazy, dream logic way, it made sense that we should land in the snow. And it made sense that it didn't hurt, too.

The Third Dream was that the angel that goes on top of our Christmas tree was broken.


4 days till Christmas!!!!!!

This might be my very favorite one, but I haven't made all of them yet, so I dunno. But lookit, it's so wiggly-looking. I like it.

This one was really fun, but not as good as I hoped it would be. I need to keep working on it.

10 Days till Christmas!

Snowflake Season Day 14 and some added randomness


I dunno what to call this one. It's like a whole buncha arrows, without the straight part, like
this: >
instead of this: ->


Way too much stuff has been gone over here lately. I swear I have spent, like 12 hours singing last week. 5 hours in school choir, 2 in stake youth choir, 4 in children's choir, plus randomly breaking out in song when I feel like it = 12 freaking hours!
And I can totally feel it in my vocal cords.

We FINALLY put up our Christmas lights! well, actually, mom put them up, cuz she wouldn't let me come out on the roof to help her, which is stupid cuz it was my window that she was climbing through all the time. And also cuz I used to go out there all the time to read in peace (peace = away from my brothers, no matter what's going on in Afghanistan) but then Dad found out and he totally went off on me and it was so not cool.

I needed a few more commas in that sentence, but whatever.

The Uglies books are starting to get stupid.

Apparently there is such a thing as too much sugar cookie dough. I'm shocked.

I need to watch Star Wars.

My jaw hurts.

Hi.

I really need to think of something to write.

I know!

It has been raining like crazy here in Vegas! (well, for Vegas, it's been raining like crazy) We've probably got almost half out annual rainfall this week! Do you know how much rain fall that is? ALMOST ONE WHOLE INCH, BABY!!!!!!! WHOOHOO!

And it's getting warmer, too. I love it!

My school choir concert is tomorrow, and my Orchestra concert is on Friday. I never thought I'd say this, but THERE IS TOO MUCH MUSIC IN MY LIFE RIGHT NOW!!!!!

I can't wait till Christmas break.

Gentle readers, adieu.


11 days until Christmas!

Snowflake Season Day 12

This one has Great Big Roundy Triangles in it. I like Great Big Roundy Triangles.

We're about to start 12 Days of Christmas-ing tomorrow! It's like ding-dong-ditch, but you leave a gift that has something to do with each day in the 12 Days of Christmas song. For example, the first day icould be a bird ornament and a pear tree branch, the 2nd day could be a 'turtle' made from dove chocolate (mmmm....) etc.

We do that every year, and it's really fun!

13 days until Christmas!

Snowflake Season Day 11

I don't really like how this one came out, but you take what you get when you're in a hurry, right?

Seriously, though. It looks like an octo-splinter.

With a hole in the middle.

(Where do I come up with this stuff?)

Snowflake Season Day 9


This one is like the Messy Fingerpaint One or something. It seems like something Monkey would make if he knew how to make a paper snowflake. Maybe I should teach him how....

Snowflake Season Day 8


This is the Circle Snowflake. Except it's more like an Oval Snowflake.

Monday, December 7, 2009

Snowflake Season Day 7


I would like this one a lot, but I punched holes to close to the edge, and so some of them are not full circles. I really like the shapes on the inside, though.

Sunday, December 6, 2009

Snowflake Season Day 6


This is one of my favorites. I think it looks the most like a real snowflake. If you haven't noticed already, these snowflakes have 8 points, not 6. I think all real snowflakes have 6 points, but I digress. I think that this one looks more real cuz it is pointy. Most of the snowflakes are roundy, and I can't make more pointy ones, cuz i don't know how. This one was a fluke.

Every time I write the word 'snowflake' I forget the 'l' and write 'snowfake' I might actually stick with that, since these are fake snowflakes. What do you think?

My Favorite Christmas Ornament



Snowflake Season Day 5


I kinda cheated on this one. Instead of putting the hole in it when it was all folded up, I put it in after I unfolded it. Does it really make a difference?

I had a choir side last night. All the choirs from my stake came, and the some other choirs They were BAPTISTS there! They were like my every idea of what a baptist choir should be, except they didn't wear those long robes. Other than that, they were perfect! They swayed and clapped when they sang, and there was lots of scooping, and there wasn't a single white person in the choir. And they called god "You". That was weird. And their pastor said the closing prayer- it was so different! Everybody stood up and held each other hands, and the pastor (I wanna call him a bishop, but that's not right) said a buncha stuff that actually sounded pretty good (except that he called God "You") and after every phrase, all the baptist said "yeah, yeah, that's right". And then at the end everybody had to look at their neighbor and say a buncha funny phrases that I couldn't understand 'cuz I was laughing so freaking hard and so was my friend...and...and... and nobody said "Hallelujah!" at the end. I was kinda disappointed about that part. But other than that, it was awesome!

And my choir got a standing ovation. That was pretty cool too.

Snowflake Season Day 4

I had to take this photo twice cuz one time it flashed really bright and you couldn't see it. Actually you could see it, cuz this is the one with the flash, I decided it showed up better (is that bad grammar? Probably). But I didn't know that it would when I took the picture, so I took two. Here's the other one:
New Subject:
Hopefully I will finish decorating the house today. My mom is not a big decorator- she does pictures and that's all. So I get to do The Christmas decorating! Here is what the front room looks like right now:I hate this stupid underlined thing!
But I should be getting it cleaned up today.

I hope.

Snowflake Season Day 3


I think the hardest thing about this will be coming up with something to say for each post.

Whatever.

Snowflake Season Day 2


For Some Reason this didn't come up on the second day of December, like I told it to, but thanks to Blogger Post Options, I'm still posting this on the second. How cool is that? It's like time travel, or something!

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

Snowflake Season

I've been inspired by DeNae's Month O' Gratitude. Every day in December I'm going to post a picture of a paper snowflake I've made. At the end of the month (or really the begining of next month) I'll put up a poll and you can tell me which one was your favorite. Fun, right?

Right?

Nevermind.
Anyways, here's the first snowflake:

24 days till Christmas!

I'm Back! (Deja vu)

If (when) you don't get it, "I'm Back!" was the same title I used when I got home from Girls Camp. (duh)

So I'm Back from Utah. It was AWESOME!! (I told you it would be)! I ate THREE freaking pieces of pie EVERY DAY I WAS THERE! (except Sunday, but I left on that day so it doesn't count) AWESOME!! And Jello. The good, homemade kind, not that cheap stuff from Walmart (that's how they spell it now, have you noticed? I liked it better before). AWESOME!! And they had a Mythbusters marathon (insert deliriously happy music) for, like, 12 freaking hours! It was AWESOME!! The only problem was that it went through dinner, so I missed a lot. That was not AWESOME!!

Anyway, there is not actual reason for this post, but I wanted to up the number of posts in November, and today is my last chance, so I wrote this. AWESOME!!


P.S. I made my Christmas Wishlist a Power Point. I am that good.


Wait for it.....







Wait for it......





Wait a little more for it...





Ok, say it with me, internet:

AWESOME!!

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

For Thanksgiving I'm going to see my aunt and my other aunt and my other aunt and my uncle and my cousin and my other cousin and a whole bunch of other cousins and aunts and uncles and grandparents and great-aunts and great-uncles, too.

It's gonna be awesome!!!!!

Also, I got SOOOO sick on Sunday, I pretty much just laid around the house and cried all day (when I wasn't sleeping). Then I woke up on Monday (at 6:00) and I felt like 97% better; and I wasn't even tired! But I've been stomach-achy on and off since then. Boooooooo.... I hate being sick.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving (all 2 of you)!!!

In honor of Thanksgiving

Ok, first of all, I think it's kinda funny that we (as Americans) need long weekends so much. This big national holiday is on a freaking THURSDAY! Seriously, how could we ever go back to work/school without getting a chance to work of all that pie? So we make throw in a perfectly nonsense 'holiday' for no (almost) no reason at all. I just think that's funny (but I am SOOOOO not complaning or anything...).

So, In honor of Thanksgiving, I am re-posting the declaration Abraham Lincoln gave, setting aside the last Thursday of November as a day of Praise and Thanksgiving (and mass turkey consumption).

"By the President of the United States of America.
A Proclamation.

The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consiousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the Unites States the Eighty-eighth.

By the President: Abraham Lincoln"



And just because I can, The Gettysberg address:

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

I love that. It's like poetry, the kind I like.

Happy Thanksgiving.

(BTW, I know It's not Thanksgiving yet, but I was afraid if I waited I would forget)

Guest Post: By Mom

(Migillicutty: BTW, my Mom is a realtor)


I took the boys with me show houses the other night....well really afternoon, but we went at 3:00 and it starts to get dark at 4:00 so it felt like night. Migillicutty was babysitting and it was the only time all day I could take this woman to look for rentals. So I decided she would just have tolerate the boys. She's actually not my favorite client and I wouldn't mind if she ditched me, which she may in fact do after our exciting evening.

In general they were wild and crazy, climbing on things and jumping off of them, throwing rocks trying to see if they could put a whole in the screen that was laying on the ground in the yard at one house. They are completely out of practice behaving with me in public and I am out of practice disciplining them in public because for the last few years I have been able to leave them at home with Migillicutty. Which is so much better!

Finally, we were leaving the last house. It was about 5:30 we had been to 5 houses the boys were crabby, the client was beyond crabby, my feet were killing me cause I'd been wearing my fabulous cute new patent leather shoes all day long, but I was trying not to be crabby because seriously, that never helps anything. And that's why when Thelly mysteriously broke the water pipe that leads to the sprinkler box and it started spraying water five feet in every direction right outside the front door, I didn't even yell or scream or attempt to discipline him in anyway. I just threw my keys and papers as far as I could onto the driveway and jumped in; cute patent leather shoes and all.

The worst part was the it took a a good three minutes standing in the spray, tugging and pulling on the sprinkler box, which I never could get open, before I realized that the box I really needed to be opening to turn the water off to the whole house was down by the street, completely out of the way of the impromptu fountain.

But the good news is that I did figure it out, I shut off the water to the house and then I called the listing agent on the house to tell her what had happened. She didn't answer. I left a message. We took the client home and as I was dropping her off she told me that she didn't want any of the houses. Never mind that the house she is living in has been foreclosed and she is going to be evicted any day and she is a section 8 renter-that means the government pays her rent-and she is going to loose her section 8 voucher if she doesn't find a new place to live by Monday and I had just showed her five houses, four of which were perfectly nice. But whatever! We needed dinner so we headed to Costco for pizza.

Remember the part about how I didn't beat Thelly for braking the pipe by doing I have no idea what, but I'm sure it was something he shouldn't have been doing? Well that was mistake. Because 30 minutes later after having ordered our pizza I was using the bathroom at Costco when Scaffy opened the emergency door and set off the alarm.

I kind of forgot not be crabby after that. I mean I wasn't really super crabby, cause I just don't even have enough fight left in me for much in the way of nastiness towards children; it never helps. But I did develop a new mantra which I repeated for the rest of the night "DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING!" Don't touch the cart, don't touch things on the shelves, don't touch your brother, don't touch the water fountain, don't touch the floor, "DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING!" Why are you touching the freezer door? Didn't I tell you "DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING!" Isn't that pineapple something? Then why are you touching it? I said "DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING!" It was a good time.

After we were done shopping and we still had a few minutes to wait for the pizza I decided to play hang man with them rather than continue to rant. Guess what the first puzzle was? Yeah, Scaffy got it right away too _ _ _ 'T T_ _ _ _ _ _ _ T_ _ _ _!

-Migillicutty's Mom

P.S. The agent called back and said they had a handyman who would be working on that property over the weekend anyway, so I don't need to worry about the pipe. They are taking care of it. I assured her that I was happy to take responsibility for the damage but she insisted that it was fine.

P.P.S. The client called and said she is reconsidering a house that I showed her a few weeks ago-the dirtiest, stinkiest house of any that I have showed her which also happens to have the highest commission of any rental I have ever seen. It's the only 5 bedroom we've seen that will accept section 8, which I guess is why she wants it. We'll see if she changes her mind again but if not I may have to take back all my negative thoughts about her.

ROTFL

Rolling on the floor laughing, look: http://overheardintheward.com
That's where I got this:


*Primary president: So as the 3rd article of faith says, “…by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.” So if we want to live with Heavenly Father again, what do we have to do first?
*CTR boy: Die!

*Bishop to Primary: What is something that we are supposed to do every morning and night, by ourselves, and with our families?
*4-year-old girl: Brush our teeth!

*Sunbeam Teacher: Now fold your arms, bow your head and say, ‘Heavenly Father.’
*Sunbeam: Heavenly Father.
*Sunbeam Teacher: Thank you for our blessings.
*Sunbeam: You’re welcome.

This place is going on my bloggroll (is that how you spell it?). It's hilarious!

Saturday, November 7, 2009

This actually happened.

A for reals conversation between me and Thelly:

(He is rattling of the stuff he wants for Christmas (every other thing for boys in the Christmas catalog))

Thelly: "...and I want this board game and this race car and this ping-pong ball popper gun...."
Me: "What would you do with a ping-pong ball popper gun?"
Thelly: "Uh...."
(He looks for that page in the catalog so he can read the description.)
Thelly: "Lookit, it has a spring and so you just push this button and then the ping-pong balls shoot out super fast!"
Me: "I didn't ask what it does, I asked what you would do with it.
Thelly: "I would get one for Scaffy too and then we could shoot at each other with them.
Me: "Wouldn't it kinda hurt to get hit with a ping-pong ball going super fast?"
Thelly: "Well...um....we could miss."

Why don't you just throw air at each other? Then you would certainly miss!
********************************************************

And a for reals conversation between Thelly and Scaffy:

(Thelly is looking at a picture of an aquarium.)

Thelly: "Scaffy, what is that fish called?"
Scaffy: "I dunno."
Thelly: "No, really, what is that fish called?"
Scaffy: "I just told you, I do not know!"
Thelly: I know you don't know, but I just want you to tell me what that fish is called!"
Scaffy: How am I supposed to tell you something that I Do Not Know!?!
Thelly: Um....I dunno......

Why I Am Not A Normal Girl--or-- Reasons My Mom Says My Husband Will Love Me

(btw, I got this idea from Motherboard, but I'm giving her credit for it so she can't say I stole her idea (she has a copyright, you know...))

*My favorite genre is science fiction (but you already knew that, right?)

*My 2nd favorite genre is fantasy/action/adventure with huge (really HUGE), bloody battles.

*My 3rd favorite genre is murder mysteries.

*My favorite video games (not including Lego Star Wars) are RockBand and Ravin' Rabbids.

*I love Mythbusters, and my favorite episodes are the ones where they blow stuff up.

*I prefer to spend my money on Smithonian and National Geographic magazines rather than Banana Rebublic/Hollister/Areo-Postale outfits.

*I spend most of my time on the internet either blogging (or reading other blogs) or reading the Star Wars databank.

*I play Star Wars board games w/ my brothers. (you know the game Chewie and R-2 are playing in Episode 4 (when C-3PO says "let the Wookie win")? I play that with my brothers)

*I don't like to decorate all that much. More or less all the decorations in my room are Star Wars posters. That's it.

*I very rarely wear jewelry. Like every other Sunday kinda rarely.

*I love playing soccer.

And for the Grand Finale.......

*I don't like Twilight.


(hear that? that's the sound of my friend never speaking to me again.)

OWWWW!!!!!

So yesterday, I'm running around my room trying to get ready for church (how unusual).

And my room is a HUGE mess (how unusual).

And I'm barefoot (how unusual).

And my belt is laying around in the middle of the floor (this is actually unusual).

And the metal point (the (usual) one that goes through the holes in the belt) is sticking straight up in the air.

And I stepped on it.


(I just want to take the time to say that I am glad for modern medicine and vaccinations, 'cuz other wise I would probably lose my foot. Which I might anyways, 'cuz I can barely walk. I'm not even exaggerating. It HURTS!)

Um....very randomness

*I have been babysitting like CRAZY!!! Like, this week I did Tuesday afternoon, Wednesday afternoon, Thursday afternoon, and Friday night. It's kinda nice to finally have some cash.

*Mom did a Triathlon this morning, and she made all of us get up at 5:00 ON A SATURDAY MORNING to come watch her. I was SOOOOO mad! She did good in the race, though.

*My orchestra teacher is still being mean, but I'm doing my best to not give an excuse to pick on me.

*Random Star Wars question: Do you think the Classic Trilogy (4,5,6) is better than the Prequel Trilogy (1,2,3), or the other way around?

*I made chicken and broccoli casserole for dinner last night. It was good, except that I couldn't find the curry powder in the spice drawer. When mom got home, after the casserole was all made, she looked in the spice drawer and found it immediately.

*I think a Halloween Imp stole it, and then put it back to make me look bad.

*Please don't ask me why a Halloween Imp would care about making me look bad.

*I don't ever want to do a triathlon.

*Star Wars is awesome (but the Prequel Trilogy is the best).

*Dad brought home half of a Lemon pie the other night. It was REALLY good!

*Don't ask me what happened to the other half of the pie, please.

*Once me and Mom had this argument about Latin. I said it wasn't a dead language because there are people who speak it, but she said it is a dead language because nobody speaks it as their native language. So I said when I grow up I'm gonna make my husband learn Latin, and we're gonna talk to our baby in Latin, so that will be her native language and it won't be a dead language anymore.

*Mom laughed hysterically and said I was gonna marry the kinda guy who would already know Latin.

*I have no idea why I told that story.

*Dad is watching football behind me.

*I hate football.

Holy Cow!

As I type, it is 63° outside! 63!!!!!
I live in Las Vegas, and it is 63°, on the first day of October!!!! That does not happen I Vegas. It doesn't begin to get cold until the end of October, or maybe the middle, it it's a really cold year, but NEVER the first day of October!!!

I love this weather.
What is it about the cold that makes the air seem so clear?
It's so cold! (and BTW, don't tell me that 63° isn't cold. Where I live, 63° is freezing)

Because I should be taking a math test.

'Key, I am seriously having a problem with blogging lately. What is wrong with me? It's not like I don't have stuff to blog about, and it's not that I don't have the time, cuz I do, I just have less time than I would like. It's just that I never get around to doing it.
So, I'm blogging today, because I should be taking a math test right now, and I DON'T WANT TO!!!!

so...a post of randomness

*My family's schedule is ridiculous. Seriously, look at this!
Me 4:00-7:00 Baptisms for the dead
Mom 4:45-5;00 Set up for Choir
Thelly and Me 5:00-6:00 Soccer practice
Monkey 6:00-7:00 Soccer practice
Scaffy 6:30-7:300 Choir
Thelly 7:00-8:00 Pack Meeting
Me 7:30 Choir performance

I had one of those choir performances almost every night for two weeks! And there was at least two other things going on all those nights. It was CRAZY!

*I am on a soccer team for the first time in my life. there were only 2 practices before the first game, and I missed one of them. Our team was TERRIBLE! Everyone was afraid to kick the ball. they would either run up to the ball and just stand there, or they would run up to 5 feet away from the ball and then just stand there and watch the other team kick it onto the goal. AARRGGHH! I kicked the ball a LOT, but I ran out of gas after a while, otherwise I think I would've scored.

*I babysat two little toddlers on Saturday night. It was really funny to watch them play with each other, because after every move they would look up at me to see if I was watching them. They were so cute!

* I tried out for the school district honor choir. I didn't make it :( :( :( :( I also tried out for regional choir, which is like the honor choir for ALL OF THE WESTERN STATES, so I think my chances of making that one are about zero.

* I am learning to play the cello. So far I know how to unpack my cello, set it up, hold it, pluck the strings and shorten the strings with my left hand so they make a different sound. And repack the cello, of course. I am taking lessons on the public school beginning orchestra class, and private lessons from my Aunt. Sh eis teaching me how to use the bow, but my orchestra teacher (at school) took it away from me (she took the rest of the classes bows, too) so it wouldn't get broken. When I went in to pick up my cello so I could take to my private lesson with my aunt, I went up to the orchestra teacher and said:
"I'm going to a private lesson, and I need my bow, can you get it for me?"

And she said: "You are not ready for the bow, you haven't even mastered the left hand yet. And she shooed me out the door.

So I sent my mom in to get it, because honestly, that teacher scares the crap out of me and I really didn't want to fight with her.

(At this point I should say that I was within a few minutes of being late for my cello lesson)

So Mom went in to get the cello. normally when we have to pick it up we just go straight to the OT's room, but officially, parents have to sign in at the office. Mom got caught in the hallways and she had to go sign in at the office. And they made her put a name-sticker on and when they found out where she was going they had to call down to the orchestra room, and it took at least 5 min. before she got out of there.
And once she got there, the OT wouldn't give her my bow.

"I'm Migillicutty's mom, she is going to a private lesson today and her teacher wants her to have her bow, can I have it please?"

"No, Migillicutty's not ready for the bow, she doesn't have the left hand mastered yet."

"I know that, but her teacher want her to have her bow; can I have it please?"

"If she starts the bow before she masters the left hand, it's gonna really mess her up."

"Her teacher wants her to have her bow, please give it to me."

"Fine, but it's gonna mess her up...(grumble, grumble, grumble....)"

So then my OT went over and helped some other kids, hoping Mom would go away if she was ignored.
Mom didn't go away, so after like, 5 min. the OT finally went and got the bow.

*I was very late for my private lesson.

Quick-ish update

I still haven't figured out how to set up that Star Wars background.
I can get it to appear on the screen, but it won't go around like an actual background.

Harumph.

If anybody knows how to upload a HTML as a background (or template, I don't care) (Melanie J, could you ask Kenny?) PLEASE HELP ME OUT!

I'm tired of coming up with clever titles

I made a copied of a new background for the blog, in honor of my musical 'career'.
I am currently in:
Ward choir,
Stake youth choir,
A totally awesome children's choir,
Advanced choir at the middle school (even though I homeschool, yes)
TWO beginning cello classes,

AND trying out for honor choir next week, AND another choir a few weeks after that!








(not that I'm trying to brag or anything........)

Guess what?

I have almost completed my very own, designed by me, Star Wars background for my blog.

Almost.

It is actually REALLY hard! First, I had to find the images I want. That was really easy, since I found a website full of cool Star Wars pics. BUT then I had to crop it and change it from one picture into 2 columns to go on the sides on my post. I have a mac, so all those photo editing programs wouldn't download to my computer. So I had to figure out how to import the cool Star Wars pic to iPhoto. It took a while to figure out how, but once I did I cropped it into two pics. Then then I put it on Power Point For Macs and made it into 2 columns with a black background. I'm starting out simple, OK?
Then I had to upload it to photobucket, but photobucket can't read Power Point, so I had to turn it into a regular picture. THAT was really hard to figure out! But I did it, and now all I have to do is figure out how to upload it to my blog.

YAY FOR ME!

P.S. Did you understand any of that?

Catching Up

I haven't posted in more than a week. I don't like that at all.

But... I have nothing to blog about. Commence random-ness;

*I have been sick for the last month... nothing really awful, just congestion and a minor earache.

* I also hadn't watched Star Wars in almost a month. (insert MANY MANY MANY sad faces here!)

* I watched Star Wars in Saturday night.

* I have been feeling much better since then.

Coincidence? Who knows.

* I put my brothers to bed 2 nights in a row. Yay for me! On the first night when I went in to say a prayer with Thelly, I asked him to say it. He did, but he didn't say Amen at the end. So I was still on my knees, waiting for him to finish the prayer. After a minute or two he came over and poked me.
"Aren't you gonna get up? The prayer's over."
I looked up at him. "You didn't say 'Amen'."
Thelly looked around uncomfortably. "Well.... Mom never notices."
I had a hard time concealing a snort of laughter. "You should say it anyways."
He looked at me, and then looked at the ground, and looked back up at me, and then gave a VERY exasperated sigh. "Amen".

That is probably the first time he has ever willingly done what I told him. Ever. In his entire life. Do you get the magnitude of this event yet?

*I am trying to make my own Star Wars background for this blog, but Mom is on the computer ALL. DAY. LONG. (when she isn't out showing houses (didn't post that she got her Realtors license? sorry)) and when she's not I have to be doing school work. Arrgh!

* I was doing a research project about almonds and peach pits, and peach pits taste like almond extract, so Mom made almond cookies out of them, but Dad went online and it said they were poisonous and he wouldn't let me have any. (which is dumb, because they are only poisonous in very large doses (VERY large) and he doesn't have a problem with her using almond extract, which has the same semi-poisonous stuff in it)

* Mythbusters is awesome.

* Hypothetically speaking, if your dad happened to check out Mythbuster from the library and you happened to make your self a taco with lettuce in it and then you microwave it, the taco will taste VERY VERY VERY horrible! And then if you hypothetically watch Mythbusters a month later, the taste of that awful taco will come back and haunt you all day. Not that I have any first hand experience or anything....

Now you know what's been going on lately.

Last weekend (I know it's Thursday, jeez..)

Last weekend I went to a family reunion.
It. Was. AWESOME!!!

It was at this "family ranch" right above that Zion canyon-thingy in Utah, so it was SUPER pretty. All MY Mom's siblings (except for one) and their spouses and their kids were there, and My grandpa's siblings were all there, and maybe even a few other people, like Bailee. I don't actually know how she is related to me, but she is AWESOME! And somebody brought RockBand, that was really fun, I stayed up till...um...I don't even know how late it was. And everything I had for breakfast the next day was fried, and, and, and.....

And they had a LAKE.

OK, so it was really just a large-ish pond, but still! They had canoes, and I paddles till my back burnt off (I forgot to wear sun block) and my cousins pretended they were pirates and they would go and attack everybody and try to tip their canoes over (everyone had a life jacket that needed one, don't worry) I got tipped twice, maybe 3 times, and it was SO MUCH FUN!

AND they had a GIANT slip-n-slide and that was surprising fun, especially when all the moms went on, and they kept getting stuck at the top, it was so funny!

And then we did this play that was like you had to act out the other meaning of all the words. So, when it said "she turned a little pale" my cousin picked up a bucket and dumped it in another cousin's head. It was way funny!

So that's what I did last weekend.

P.S. The reason I didn't write this until Thursday was because of all this stupid schoolwork I have to do. But that's a post for a later date. Like WAY later, if my mom has anything to say about it. Which she does.
Crap.

School (even homeschool) make it very difficult to blog

Seriously, I don't really like this whole school-thingy. It's totally restricting my free time. But that's not what I'm blogging about, that's just my excuse for not blogging very much lately.
What I'm actually blogging about is Mutual last night.
It was really fun.
The end.
Hahahahahahaha!
We did newspaper this fashion show. We split up into three teams and each team had to make their model (who was another Young Woman) a modest prom dress out of newspaper and tape. It was super funny, even though our team lost.
We did this floor-length- dress with a really puffy skirt. We did the puff by folding and taping the paper at the top. The shirt was just a long piece on newspaper wrapped around our model's waist, but we made it modest with a piece of newspaper covering each shoulder.
We folded the back of the newspaper into a V shape (with pieces of newspaper behind to make it modest, of course) and put laces made out of tape going across the V. It was a lot of fun to make, even if our team didn't get 1st place. We got the "most creative" award.
They gave the "most creative" award to Scaffy at the Halloween party wheree he was Nightcrawler from the X-men.
My mom couldn't find a Nightcrawler costume, so she turned his pajamas inside out and made an X across them. And she gave him blue face paint all over. He though it as the greatest thing EVER! (I thought it was pretty cool, too, especially all the face paint)
The guy who gave out the award thought he was a smurf. Fortunately, that didn't bother Scaffy.

My dad figured out how to set up RockBand so that you can actually play the drums. It's a lot more fun now. We play it every night.

So last night was really fun, even if I did spend HOURS and HOURS writing a report on the War of the Roses (that I'm still not finished with)

Wish me luck on my choir audition! :)

No title

I really need to write some witty and very funny post to officially bring myself back to bloggy-land after my long vacation, but I can't think of anything. Hmm....

Well, today was the first day of school. Hallelujah (sarcasm intended).
Thelly, Scaffy, and Monkey are all in school, in 4th grade, 2nd grade, and kindergarten. I am in 8th. So for the first half of the day, Mom and I are the only ones in the house. It is SO quiet!
Mom made me start another blog where I can write down all the stuff I do at school, but I'm not gonna write down the URL, because it is really stupid and boring. Today I studied the structure of a water molecule and a oil molecule, and how come oil and water don't mix. It was a lot harder than it sounds. I also started learning Greek (I started learning Greek once before, but I wasn't very good at keeping up with it).

I dunno what to write. That is kinda a problem. Hmm...

I think I'll just write some of the stuff I did in Utah.

We had Thelly's and Monkey's B-day up there at this really cool family fun center. It had a water park with 4 different slides, so my cousins and I would race each other like, a million times. Literally, we did that for 2 hours, it was SO MUCH FUN!! Then we had pizza and cake and soda, and we went inside where they had the HUGE bounce houses, it was GREAT! There are these mushroom shaped ones and they're totally round so they are really hard to stay on and so of course all the kids have contests to get on top and stay on top while the other kids try to get on and/or knock you off. It's way fun!

Grandpa took us to this hunting gear shop with lots of taxidermy animals and fish. But the fish were alive :) That was fun.
We also had a girls night on Friday. that was fun, even though all my girl cousins are way younger than me. We went out to eat and we watched old movies and we ate Ho-ho's and we made lemonade. It was a lot of fun :)

Grandma also showed me 2 new authors that I really like. She is a middle school teacher, so she knows what girls my age like.

My dad bought Rock Band on sale for our Wii. My parent's think it is the greatest thing ever. I think it is stupid.

I have to go to bed now. Bye.
:(

I don't want to come up with a clever title for this, so.....

Guess what peoples? ( BTW, that's a real word according to spell check)
I am going home tomorrow! I am really looking forward to that. Hanging out with cousins is fun for a while, but after a week and a half you sorta start getting tired of each others company. And my cousins (being girls) can drag out a fight way longer than my brothers (being boys) so I'm not used to it. And I'm just sorta just ready to get back to normal life, you know? The only problem is that since school start the day after we get back, and I still don't have a schedule , so the chances of getting back to normal life are pretty much zero :( Oh well. I will be seeing my dad in about an hour and tomorrow I get to go to the Okirrh Mountain Temple Dedication (I know I spelled it wrong) and then later that day I get to see my mom, so that's all pretty good :) So there you have the ups and down of my life in the next 48 hours. Good night!

I'm a Mommy!

Ok.........please don't get all ' oooo......I'm gonna go tell her bishop' on me here. What I mean is I'm a BLOGGY mommy. :) I have inspired THREE (3) of my cousin's to start their own blogs. Here are the links, if you wanna follow them :
justinmanstories.blogspot.com
goldilocks2000.blogspot.com

I would post the third one but I don't actually know what it is yet. But I'm working on it!


Anyways.......... I was thinking today about how different people 'sound' on their blogs and in real life.
For example, any aunt Alison Wonderland seems (and this is just my opinion, and I mean no offense to her (or anyone else mentioned in this post for that matter)) way more funnier on her blog than in person. In real life she seems (and again, this is just my opinion) much more serious and Grown-Up (make of that-a compliment or not-what you will, Dear Auntie).
Except, of course at a birthday party the other day when she yelled at her siblings "WHY WOULD ONE SACRIFICE A PIE IN SUCH MANNER???!!!??!!! They were talking about hitting someone in the face with a pie (just in case you couldn't tell). My best friend, self-acclaimed
"Ultimate Pie Luvar" (and that is a quote) would totally agree.

I think I am also more quiet and reserved in real life, unless you really get to know me (and sometimes even then). I personally think I am way more funny and outgoing on my blog (and if I am incorrect in that thinking, please don't correct me. "Ignorance is Bliss" after all!)
I think maybe that is because I don't really know the people who read me blog that well (except for Mom, of course).

After all, if someone doesn't like my blog, all they have to do is stop reading it (and not tell me you don't like it, because just imagine what a terrible blow that would be to my fragile self-esteem, oh you poor dear......... (and also I would hunt you down and... well... be very mad at you...(yeah, that's it......))) and I will be none the wiser, because I can't figure out how to get my stat tracker to tell me the names of the people who are reading this blog.
BUT if I creep my Beehives class out in real life (as I'm sure I have on many occasions) I have to hang out with them for years (...and years and more years...oh dear...) and so I am a little more quiet and shy.

Or it could just be the usual explanation- that I am socially handicapped, and since blogging is virtual, my social handicap does not cover blogging.

A or B, folks.

Any way where was I....oh yes, blogger personalities....let's see....

My cousins (the ones I posted the links to) seem to be a lot more talkative and expressive in real life, especially Goldilocks (and again, I'm not trying to offend at all, if she's reading this).
On their respective blogs they are, well...short. That's not really a bad thing, but they
( just Goldilocks, actually, I don't think it's very fair to generalize JustinMan's because he's only posted, like, once) just seem to use short words and sentences and posts and stuff like that. Probably because she is a heck (excuse my french) of a lot younger than me.


So..................... in many fewer words, today I learned two (2) things....
1. That people might behave very differently in real life than their blogs might suggest.
2...... That I am VERY long-winded.

Happy Last Week Of Summer! :)

Thelly's birthday present

I have been messing around with my all my cousins for the last week, so I've kinda been to busy to blog. But with my mom and her sisters all warning me that I will lose all my readers unless I get back to my blog, and Thelly's B-Day tomorrow, I really do have to get around to updating my criminally neglected blog (Heehee, I like the sound of that). So..............

10 good things about Thelly:

1. He is very good at getting things clean.
2. He is always honest.
3. He isn't a follower.
4. He always lets you know when something is wrong.
5. He is never purposely mean to anyone, no matter how mean they are to him.
6. He tries very hard to be reverent in church.
7. He never lets what people think about him stop him from doing what he wants.
8. He is very good a sports.
9. He loves his family VERY much.
10. And we love him too!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY (tomorrow) THELLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm blogging from a computer that is not my computer. It isn't even a mac. It isn't even in the same state as my computer! How COOL is that?!!

Monday, August 10, 2009

I like parenthesis

My mom surprised us younglings (Star Wars nerd, remember?) with a trip up to the mountains of Southern California to visit some friends from our old ward.
And let this stand FOREVER as a record of my maturity that I did not pitch a fit about going away with no warning {If I didn't have a social handicap, I might've had plans, right?} ).
It is SOOOOO pretty up there! and we went to the beach and nobody drowned (and that is no mean feat when your take 3 kids under the the age of 5, and 2 7-year olds, and 2 9-year-olds, and me to the beach) and I boogie-boarded like heck (excuse my french) and so did one of the 7-yrs and 1 of the 9-yrs. It was a lot of fun. And I read New Moon AND Eclipse (I'll do the book reviews, don't worry, Mom) in the many hours it took to get there and back (my dad drives under the speed limit. GGAAAHHHH!!!!).
And so we came home on Sunday afternoon and we are leaving tomorrow to visit my mom's family in Utah. And a week after that we're going to a family reunion with that same side of the family (Maybe my mom has developed the reverse of leaving-the-house-phobia).

So now you know why I'm not gonna be posting very much (if at all, my grandma has a computer but it's ANCIENT) over the next 2 weeks.

In loving memory.....

Our dear fish, Georgie passed away quietly ::sniff:: (with a lot of jostling of his tank from my brothers trying to get him to move again, actually) on Tuesday afternoon. He was 1 1/2 years old. ::sniff:: Georgie's body was laid to rest in the toilet yesterday morning. ::sniff, sniff:: May he Rest In Peace in that great fish bowl in the sky. ::sniffle::

At least Georgie died in the water. When I was about 3 I took my fishy (Strawberry) out of the water 'cuz he wasn't swimming and went and showed him to my mom. That was the last time we had a fishy until a year and a half ago.

And we're NOT getting a replacement Georgie.

Questions

I'm a little upset. Like, 60 people viewed my blog yesterday and the only one who commented was my mom. ::sniff, sniff::
So today I am gonna ask a question, so you have to comment:

What is your favorite book?
movie?
board game?

Is anyone here?

Hello? HELLO?

(crickets chirping)

Just me, then.
My favorite book of all time, I couldn't narrow it down to 1, but Harry Potter, Eragon, and Peter and the Starcatchers are definitely the top 3 series.
Favorite movie.......Star Wars. Episode 2. Duh.
Favorite board game........who has a favorite board game? I don't. I guess if I had to pick one, I would pick Sorry, but I'm not really into board games since the only people to play with are my brothers, and they throw a tantrum when they lose.

Now it's your turn.....

The 13th Reality


Tick (a nickname) Higginbotttom (I didn't make it up, the author did, blame him) starts receiving mysterious letters one quiet September from a mysterious Master George (do you get that it's a mystery yet?), who wants Tick's help saving the universe, (and the other 12 versions of it) from the evil, yellow-loving Mistress Jane.
Tick has to put together 12 clues to discover how to actually meet Master George and receive further instructions from him. Along the way he meets Mothball (a very friendly, 8-foot tall woman from the 5th reality), Rutger (from the 11th Reality, he is short, round, and Mothball's best friend), Sofia and Paul (an Italian girl and American boy to whom master George has also sent pleas for help), and Norbert Johnson (the Alaskan postmaster who originally sent Master George's letters).
Once Tick, Sofia, and Paul arrive at Master George's secret Headquarters (in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle) he explains that there is not 1, but 13 versions of the universe and that people of various genetic (and other) differences live in all of them. Mistress Jane is plotting to destroy the realities and rebuild them according to her own preferences.
Master George sends Tick, Sofia, Paul, Mothball, and Sato (another boy to whom Master George sent his letters) to steal Mistress Jane's source of power and trap her in the 13th Reality.

Gee, what a cliffhanger..........

THE Twilight book review.

Read the book before you read this post. That is the closest I will come to a Spoiler Warning.
It just wouldn't feel right if I didn't put a picture.

I can't think of a way to dramatize this up a whole lot so ......... I liked it.

I don't think anyone but my best friends (and possibly my mom) can truly understand what an extraordinary statement that is. I spent at LEAST a year refusing to read Twilight because I thought it was to popular and romantic to be any good. But I read it and I liked it.
I didn't really like the romantic-y parts (they touch each other to much)(it's like this love potion in Harry Potter that actually only creates a powerful obsession insted of real love) (WOW, I am such a nerd, using Harry Potter to make an analogy). It starts out like Edward is all mad at Bella and she is scared of him and then she is suddenly all like 'oooh.... He's mysterious and handsome and perfect' when there is NO romantic interest before that and it makes me want to GAG. And then a little while after that Bella is saying that he is like the center of her life. UGH!
And, everything else aside, it's just creepy to be going out with someone who wants to kill you.
Just.
Plain.
CREEPY!

And I don't really like all the stuff about his moods changing super fast so this second he's angry and then he's all soft and tender and then he's teasing and then he's serious. ARRGH! I just don't see anything desirable in his character. He's creepy. That's it.
And it's really just odd that he sparkles. That's just weird.

BUT

I like learning about his family and their history and their pasts and his history. Edward himself is creepy, but I like his family, especially Carlisle and Esme. Those names are just weird, though.
(Totally random: I'm writing Weird and Creepy way to much)

I really liked the end, though. THAT'S the kinda book I like; the mystery and the action and the bloodshed. Not all the romance-y stuff (actually I do like the romance-y stuff in Star Wars and other places, just not to the absurd degree the romance-y-ness is taken to in Twilight. Confused yet?)
So I liked the end and I liked the history of the family; I just didn't like the absurd-ness of the romance.

The End

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

This is not a real post.

I am 100 pages into Twilight and it is still stupid. Maybe I'm just prejudiced.

My aunt Diana Bananna MUST comment on this blog or I will...........umm.........think of something.

The End

And no, this was not supposed to be a good post, would you prefer I didn't post at all?

Oh....wait, don't answer that.

I have no title for this random collection of random-ness

You know how at the bottom of this post it says 'posted by MIGILLICUTTY at whatever time'?
Why does it do that? I am the one writing this blog, so OBVIOUSLY I posted it. Duh.

Iam currently grabbing scsaffy and toturung himand thelly is hitting with areally hard pillow so [please excuse any typos.


OK, I let him go.

What to talk about.......

My cousin came over to visit on Tuesday. He left on Saturday. I not overly sad about that. Wanna know why?

He SINGS.
Constantly.

I thought I was gonna go mad.

He got my brothers to sing. too. My singing cousin would sing : "Let's sing about CAKE!" And they'd all be off:
"CAKE is yummy!"
"i like CAKE!"
"CAKE has frosting!"
"I'm singing about CAKE!"

They sang that for, like, 30 minuets. Then they sang about "I see Icy Ice cream" for 45 min.

Like I said, I wasn't overly sad when he left. OK, he was kinda fun some of the time, and he kept my brothers outta my hair, and he helped them pass their favorite video game, but- seriously?
A FREAKIN TEN-YEAR-OLD WHO SINGS ABOUT CAKE!??!?!?!!!!????!!?!?!?!!!!!!!!

I'm gonna pick a new topic. The stake Pioneer Days Celebration
(RANDOM: Why do they call it Pioneer DAYS? It's only 1 afternoon.)

A girl in my class that I know kinda well and I am kinda friends with spent the whole afternoon trying to flirt with the guy I like.

I hate her.

I had to sing in the stake youth choir (my aunt is the director).
You know how they have that little box full of singing and dancing and bobbing-up-and-down puppets in SHREK? We had to do that bobbing-up-and-down thing in one of the songs we sang. It was just a little bit humiliating. Like, a LOT.

My mom won the 5 k pioneer race in Saturday morning (the lady who usually wins was injured).

I started to read Twilight. So far I hate it. (For those who don't know (like everybody) I have been refusing to read Twilight for a very long time, but since the movie came out I just wanna figure out what all the fuss is about.)

I went back-to school shopping (for clothes of course) on Saturday.
I'm homeschooling next year.

That's about all I can think of right now.

It's a miracle!

I'm actually looking forward to doing a book review.

(sounds of several people in the background falling over in a dead faint)

That's because I have a totally awesome book to review on (drum roll, please).

This is the greatest practical how-to book EVER!
It has all kinds of cool stuff, from Jump Rope Rhymes to Cool Science Experiments to Gin Rummy to A List of Books That Will Change Your Life to Putting Your Hair Up With A Pencil to Back Walkovers to Joan of Arc to Build Your Own Scooter- out of wood boards!

Every girl needs a copy of this book (there is a boy's addition, too, BTW). There is also a Double-Daring Book for Girls, but I don't have that one. I would recommend checking it out, though.

My aunt Alison Wonderland is one of the greatest people EVER (right up there with the guy who invented the printing press and Master Yoda {told you I'm a nerd}) for getting me The Daring Book For Girls (plus I know she's gonna read this and a flattered aunt is the best kind to have when you're going to visit a few weeks from now) .

This is starting to get really, really old...

..'cuz I have to do a book rveiew. You know the drill.


NNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Animorphs
Book 1: The Invasion

Wow, this is a pretty big picture.

It's about these 5 kids; Jake, Marco, Cassie, Rachel, and Tobias. They're heading home from the mall one night and they decide to take a shortcut through and abandoned construction site. while they're in there, an alien spaceship fall from that sky. Inside is a fatally wounded alien called an Andalite. He warns the kids that there is another species of alien called the Yeerks. The
Yeerks are parasites. They can enter the brains of other species like Andalites and humans and take over their brains. The Andalite gives the 5 kids the power to morph-to collect a sample of animal DNA and use it to change themselves into a replica of that animal. The kids run away, and the Andalite is killed by the leader of the Yeerks- Visser Three.
Now Tobias, Rachel, Marco, Cassie, and Jake are mankind's only hope of stopping an alien invasion.

It sounds really bogus, but I like it.

I really REALLY just do not want to blog today.

But I have to. I would be OK with blogging today if I didn't have to do a book review (just in case you haven't noticed, I REALLY HATE (excuse my french) doing book reviews!!!!). And I have nothing else to do a book review on. The only thing I could even do a book review on is 'Scary Stories for Campfires' that was so lame I didn't even finish it. All the stories are like, "Once Upon A Time, there was a ghost in a house. The ghost never hurt any body or anything, or did anything spooky. It was just there. The end." Exciting. It's doing the stupid word underlined thing again and I am NOT happy about that!

Moving on.

Ummmmmm..........I have nothing to move on to. Wait.......oh yeah!
Dad is taking me to see Harry Potter tomorrow. I am expecting it to be VERY VERY bad, but I'm gonna go see it anyways, because you have to see the Harry Potter movies, DUH!

I have a swim meet on Saturday. I'm gonna suck, because I missed a lot of practices when I was at Girls Camp, so everyone is faster than me now.
I don't really like swim team.
I bet I would like it a lot more if it helped me get more tan. I can't tan to save my life. I am all ways the whitest person (by a LOT) at young women's swim parties. :(
STOP LAUGHING AT ME!!!!
(now you're creeped out, 'cuz you think I can hear you)

The End.

P.S. I love my grandma for her orange drop cookie recipe. The End.

Dang it.....

....I have to do another book review.(Turns out Blogger can upload an image faster than I can unwrap a Starburst)


Harry Potter is a wizard growing up with his non-magical (muggle) relatives. They are really mean! He doesn't want to live with them, but his parents were killed by an evil wizard called Lord Voldemort. Voldemort tried to kill Harry, too, but he couldn't. Voldemort was defeated, his powers were gone, and he was allmost killed, but (unfortunately) not quite.
So Harry had to go live with his Muggle Aunt and Uncle and cousin, who never told him that he was a wizard. But on his 11th birthday Harry receives a letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and Hagrid (keeper of the grounds at Hogwarts, and the deliverer of Harry's letter) tells him that he was a wizard.
So Harry sets of for Hogwarts, meeting Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger on the way. Harry finds himself very unexpectedly famous for making Voldemort disappear, and so he attracts a lot of unwanted attention. Voldemort, however, is not a far gone as Harry thinks. He is back, and he is trying to steal the Sorcerer's Stone from Dumbledore. (the headmaster at Hogwarts)
But when Dumbledore is called away from the school, Voldemort is free to move in and try to capture the Stone, and only Harry Potter stands in his way.

I've this book 10 times now, so obviously I really like it. When I first started this series, I never expected to really like it, I just wanted to know what everyone was talking about. But I really, really did like it, and I still do. I like the mystery and suspense, and the humor, and the effect it has on my imagination, and all the detail, and everything. I persuaded Mom to read the series once, but she didn't like them all that much (she never likes good fantasy book though). I think I might have liked them better when I was 10, but they're still pretty darn good.
Ummm....... The End

The post about about what I did at camp

I'm writing this post with lotsa pictures!


Welcome to Camp Stimpson!
(I tried to get some of the prettiness of the mountains in the background,
but I don't think it worked)
A couple of my friends posing with the port-a potty
(I dunno why those words are underlined, sorry)The infamous rope bridge (dunh dunh DUNH!)
Someone on the infamous rope bridge.My feet (foot actually) on the infamous rope bridge.

We had flag ceremony every morning and every night.
(and it was REALLY boring, standing there for 5 minuets
watching them trying to get the flag on the pole right-side up)We played stick-pull with the girls from another ward.
(I was not very good)They had a really fun rock wall, too.
(I went on twice, and it was hard!)One of my leaders had a lot of fun on rock star day!
(she put colored get in her hair an pulled it up into a
Mohawk and everything, it was SO funny!
Some of my friends dressed up in silly costumes.
The left is a Disney princess, the middle is a Vampire, and the right is an
Olympic athlete [her face is on the box of Wheaties in her hand] )This is supposed to be the inside of my friends tent
after her secret sister decorated it (there was confetti and
balloons and streamers EVERYWHERE!) but it's to blurry to really tell.

So now you know a little bit of what I did at Girls Camp. Maybe I'll write more later, maybe not, but I am SO DONE with Blogger images for right now!
