Daddy's Friends

I'm thankful for them.

It's now time for another update on my house. YAY!!! Actually, it now has four walls, a roof, a ceiling, two floors, three windows, and..... Some other stuff.

The other stuff hasn't been installed yet. But last night my Uncle gave us a skylight, for over the stairs, I suspect (I may be called down today for my opinion on that matter), and he gave us some wood flooring (woot!). And then daddy's friend (almost another uncle to us) gave us some carpetting for the loft. What would we do without them? Well.... we'd end up painting the floor and getting splinters. Ouch.

So now there will be a lovely wood floor to go under my rug, and then we can dance and cut a rug. haha.

Anyway. I tried to tak a picture for you all, but..... It didn't work.

The windows in the loft face east and west, so I'll be woken up by the sunrise. :) Well, if I weren't going to be investing in some window treatments. :P And we're going to put bookshelves over the stairs (my idea, and totally brilliant, if I can say so myself). It's sooo Exciting!! I can hardly wait. :D

I talked to Jason's mom and she said that you folks out in Washington are feeling cold, wet and depressed. I understand. The Redskins beat you. But then the Redskins were beat. *sigh* The whole area was rooting for them. Even people like me who don't follow football. (I just had to ask my sister to make sure you'd been beat).

I apologize to all of you for being out of contact, my parental controls are being stupid, so I write comments then they are lost in cyberspace. I declare, this is oppression and fascism if I ever saw it.

That's also the reason for the lack of posts. (argh!!)

And Elisabeth's Xanga is turning her into Joe. (A kitten sniper? that is sooo Joe)

The wind finally quit blowing. I think. But last night we went out to my uncle's in the country and it was CHILLY. Like you're standing there, no wind or anything, in your coat and hat and scarf and shivering in your moccasins. And then you get in the car and just shiver for the first fifteen minutes. It's sooo cold!

We had to read this story in English about a lady who is a bit mad and she's put in this room for the "rest treatment" and the room has garrish yellow wall paper and she starts seeing things in the wall paper, like a lady. Then she starts seeing the lady outside her windows, all of them, whenever she looks out. At the end, she thinks she is the lady trapped in the wallpaper, and she tears the paper off to get free. That was an interesting story.

Then there was the boy with the rocking horse, who rocked to find out who was going to win horse races, then he bet on them and won 80,000 pounds before he rocked himself to death. All for his poor unlucky mum. That, in an odd way, was a very sweet story.

Enough of my random ramblings. :) I'm off to write a "Writing Sample" for English. Whoopee!

And the big bad wolf said....

haha! I scared you!

I scored as William Wallace. The great Scottish warrior William Wallace led his people against their English oppressors in a campaign that won independence for Scotland and immortalized him in the hearts of his countrymen. With his warrior's heart, tactician's mind, and poet's soul, Wallace was a brilliant leader. He just wanted to live a simple life on his farm, but he gave it up to help his country in its time of need.

So yeah, I'm William Wallace, But I PROMISE!!! I don't look like him. At least, I'm clean, and today I'm not wearing plaid, though it's cute. I scored lowest as James Bond... what does that say?

The wind is blowing really hard, whistling around corners and leaves sail past the windows in straight paths. It's also snowing, it's rumoured.

Yesterday was my dad's birthday. He is very old now.

Hmm.... think of something witty....

School Started!!!!! And I"m going to be going crazy. So don't mind me. I"m taking four classes three of them on one day and I don't know how you all do it, because I am seriously confused. Like, my assignments, I'm trying to remember what I have to do for what class. I did write them down, so no worries... But still. And then I don't have all my books yet and they're not supposed to be in for two days and a week at least. *pulls out hair*

I have school everyday. I have to get up at 5:30 Tuesday and Thursday. I am not good at that.

Hmmm.... And.... So far I know.... No One in any of my classes. Actually, the guy who sat in front of me in Math is in my English class, and a girl named Neelam is also in English with me, and she was either in english or Math with me last semester. English. They've stuffed twenty five of us into this Leeetle Tiny room. The teacher's looking for something bigger. And we're reading and writing about short stories and we had to talk about our theme statements with one of the other students and I got stuck witht he guy who thinks the whole story was about.... well... Let's keep this G. That was delightful. Then we had to say whether we were a "talker" or a "listener" in class. (this is the same professor who gave a quiz on the syllabus). Then we were paired up with one of "our own kind." That was fun. I'm a listener mostly, and I got paired up with this guy who is seriously quiet. But..... THat doesn't matter, because I just asked him about a gazillion questions. Why do people sign up for classes if they're never going to show up?

I am avoiding reading my management book. But I think now I have to go get ready to go to school. (Doesn't that just sound so cool? "I'm Going to School!")

And today is Friday the Thirteenth, also my dad's birthday. His friends are all calling to say happy birthday and I get to play secretary.

I have had some deep thoughts of late, but they don't linger long enough to make it here.:-P

A Post

You're right Marlow. I do need to post. My computer is still acting all weird, but when we took it in to be fixed, it was normal. Stupid thing. So I'm working on the family computer that I must pry away from Anastasia.

Let's see........... Christmas. We went to the Christmas eve service at our church, then went home and went to Midnight Mass with Brian and Tim. That was interesting. We didn't get home until 4 AM. Then four hours later we were up opening presents. My mom says Faith and hayden were up earlier at like 6, but they lay down and went back to sleep (Thank you!). I was so tired at eight, I went back to bed until 3 after we finished. Our Church didn't have a service, which irks me. I think I went over that already though. Then my aunt and uncle and grandparents came over, and Brian and we played games and Uncle Barry played the guitar and I sang. Uncle Barry is an exceptional guitarist. We're going to have a music night at his House soon. :-D There are few things better than that.

And..... Let's see. The week has been pretty uneventful. Sunday Bethany and I went hiking with, guess who, that's right Brian and Tim. I think we need to get a life or something. Anyway. We went to the forest down here by us, which Jason might remember. That was fun. Beth and I took off and they couldn't find us. (They say they weren't looking, whatever) That was enjoyable. Bethany and I got to do some talking. Haha. THen we went back and they'd moved the car and climbed up trees. We taught them how to play MASH. :-D And we made Tim watch A Walk to Remember. It's a great joke, because our dad has said some of the things her dad says. And we're not allowed to date either. We are a bit disapointed in her attitude about it. It's not the end of the world. Golly. *rolls eyes*

And............ Tim came over yesterday and showed the boys and faith how to wrap their hands for the new punching bag that they got. You'd be surprised that he knows how to, He and Brian have scabbed up knuckles from theirs. Crazy boys. We taught him to play a new game and we played Rummy and then after dinner we took a plate up to Brian who was sad that he couldn't come too. He has to work ALL the time. We put tiny portions of food on his plate. The real plate was left in the car. He was so disapointed. :-D

I saw King Kong. SCARY!!!! ARHRHRHHHH!!!! I spent half of it with my eyes closed. I must thank you all because it was on your recomendation that Faith stayed home. It was too scary for her to see.

The Nanny Job fell through, which is something of a relief. IT was really messing uop my schedule and stressing me out and I hadn't even met the family yet.

Ok. there a post. An awful one, I apologize.

Oh yeah. One last thing. We live in a not so great neighborhood. The "Ghetto" is just down the street. LOL. Anyway, you know, you don't take walks at night, basically. Actually, I was at the Chinese place the other day and there were some guys there talking about drugs. Yeah anyway, not so hot neighborhood. So last tuesday the boys were out playing and riding their bikes at the church next door. Suddenly Hayden comes running inside crying and babbling. My mom can't understand what he's saying, so Fletcher comes in after him and his questioned, and come to find out, Hayden's been shot. Yeah. They think it was a highpowered BB gun or this special kind of handgun for shooting groundhogs and such. IT was shot from across the street, and they couldn't see whoever it was. Anyway, he has a big bruise and a scratch, not a bullet embedded in him or anything, but they aren't so eager to play outside anymore.

I think I"ve got to go to work now. Take care you all. :)
