I’m going to a Girl’s Camp thing for four days starting tomorrow, so I won’t be seeing any of you for a week!
See you all next Monday!
I went inner-tubing for the first time on Saturday and I fell in the lake only once. It was fun.
HA guess what I just did!!!SpoilerSpoilerSpoiler
I just read the 300th page of The Fellowship of the Thing!! Only 241 pages are all that separates me from joining!
My little brother got ketchup in his eye.
What happened when you take the “r”s out of literature?
You get Six Cows and one Cooked Kingdom.
Also, fireworks are unicorn bombs. Why they have never succeeded in abducting me, I’ll never know.
I may not be able to come here to the Shard as much as I’d like because I usually use my school chrome book, but we have to return those on Wednesday. I guess I’ll just have to get used to using my mom’s old phone that is now a communal kids phone for me and my siblings.
I have some very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very VERY exiting news!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A couple of weeks ago, I found out that we are doing a class read of a novel in third period with two other classes. There were three candidates: Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien, and [Drumroll please...]
For the next while, I brought my copy of Skyward to school, shared hilarious Spensa quotes, and made people vote for Skyward. When my teacher put out the Google Form for the vote, I was really exited. I kept recruiting people to my side, and the winner was finally released.
The winner is...Spoiler
The winner was released on Friday or Thursday last week, and me and my family went on a vacation to visit family over Memorial Day weekend, but we had to (sadly) miss school (Where they would start reading the book) yesterday in account for us driving back home. I brought Skyward with me so I could read it on our drive.
When we were packing to go home, I could not find Skyward anywhere.
This really scared me because, in my opinion, books have the equivalent worth to diamonds.
When we got home and eating dinner, I suddenly remembered something. Sometime during our trip, I put my book in the front pocket of my backpack. I tried not to get my hopes up, but when I opened my backpack, there it was.
Today at school, three classes read part of Skyward and was introduced to the wonderful world of Sanderson books.
I'm just so elated.
Anybody else not have enough time for the shard for about a week and come back and find out everyone has been having fun without you?
This happens to me all the time.
Also, sidenote- What is the time period to respond to status updates for you people? I usually only reply if the last comment on the update is within about a day.
Today I had my first tennis match of the season against another school, and I lost 1-6.
It should have been a closer match because the girls on the other team (I was playing doubles) were switching the scores on me, so they were either incompetent, or being cheaters.
Today, I found a four-ounce container of OJ in the fridge, so I asked my siblings if I could have it. My older brother (Enter a username) thought it was his, but my younger sister (She asked to be called Maniac) also said it was hers, so we decided to compete for it. The challenge we decided to compete on was "Who Could Stay Seated the Longest." All three of us sat on the floor and we couldn't stand up. Our bottoms had to stay on the floor, and the last to stand wins, therefore getting the orange juice. We began as the afternoon session of General Conference started. My younger brother (We'll call him mini-Enter) twice gave us mini-challenges during our sitting session. The first was we had to keep a piece of pepperoni on our tongues while Mini-Enter went to the bathroom, and the second we needed to keep a book balanced on our heads. I won both of the mini-challenges, along with Maniac on the first one. As General Conference was ending, Enter stood up, and Maniac soon after, declaring me the winner! During that time, though, our mom found two more orange juices and an apple juice in the fridge... I still got first dibs on the OJ, though.
Today was the last day of the quarter for my school.
And what does that mean?
One entire week of no projects hanging over my head. Seven. Days. I'm just so exited.
Today, I was doing my classes online and outside on our porch swing. The neighbor's cat, Rosie, came and walked up to me. This is not an odd occurrence because she often comes up to our back door and meows at us to pet her, but instead of sitting at the back door, she came up next to where my chromebook is and put her front paws on the swing. Then, she jumped. On the chromebook. While I was in class. She was walking on the keyboard and it was adorable, but also annoying and surprising! I tried my best to get her off and eventually I was able to get my chromebook out from under her. Then she just sat down in the middle of the swing like she owned it. I took some pictures of her while on the swing 'cuz she's super cute:
Something happened that made me start to think that Dominoes Pizza is really a cult. (But not really, the cult part is a joke. But the rest of the story is true.)
One day, our family ordered some pizza- one regular-sized pizza with cheese, and two small cheese-free pizzas for us weirdos who can't have milk. We opened the larger pizza box, and on the inside of the lid, there were four dots of some red substance. It was too deep a red to be pizza sauce, so our conclusion was it's either some red ink (It looked to be about the same hue as the red on the pizza box) or blood. Just to be safe, my dad called the pizza place and asked for a replacement pizza, just in case it was blood. It probably wasn't, but still.
We got the new pizza and my dad showed the employees some pictures of the red splatters(To prove he wasn't crazy or just scamming to get a free pizza), after we found two more red spots.
(Cue the pictures)
Still, it probably wasn't blood.
But, to make sure, we wanted to do a test to see how similar the splotches look to blood, so we sterilized a sewing needle, and my dad said whoever was willing to prick themselves got five bucks. My older brother, @Enter a username, immediately said he would. I mean, it was for science, so why not? He tried pricking himself, but it didn't work, so my dad tried it himself, but still couldn't. Then I suggested something. I have these weird bumps on my arms that I sometimes pick at, so I had a few teeny scabs that I said I was willing to break open to get some blood out. I was able to get out some and smeer it onto a piece of cardboard we ripped off of another pizza box. Once the blood dried, it looked exactly the same. Same hue, same sheen, same way it dried, everything. It was uncanny. But, we wanted another sample that was dripped instead of smeared, so I picked off another scab and laid on my back with my feet up to try to get enough blood to drip the same way as the pizza box to compare the to. Want to see the results?
Same. Exact. Storming. Stuff.
My dad called Dominoes and told them what we found out, and that brings me to my hypothesis: Dominoes is a cult.
I think that the way Dominoes gets the red ink for their pizza boxes is from the blood of their enemies (A.K.A. the people who leave bad reviews about their pizza), and the pizza store is a front, and the way they get their money. That's my conspiracy theory.
(I don't actually think Dominoes pizza is a cult. That was a joke. But the bloody pizza box was real.)
And that, my friends, is how I became a blood donor, for science.
(Even though I didn't get that five bucks.)
One of my worst nightmares is coming true: I'm running out of books.
What would you do if there were not any books you wanted to read in your house, because I have only been without books for a day, and my mind is already having a meltdown/I'm getting ridiculously stir-crazy. (I'm pretty sure I am addicted to books)
