money money money


Today I realized that for money we pretty much just give value to a piece of fancy green paper. And we spend a lot of time working for pieces of paper, and think about pieces of green paper all the time. The paper by itself is worth nothing.

milkbox?


So at Costco my family gets these chocolate milk juice boxes. But then I thought, That doesn't make sense, it can't be called chocolate milk juice boxes because there is no juice in them. The box is just the same as on juice boxes. But "milkbox' doesn't sound right either...

annoying

I have sucessfully found one of the most annoying websites on the internet: www.tothewater.com
you can never touch the water and it makes an annoying beeping sound when you do. However its not the most annoying one I've ever been to.... If you google "the most annoying web page" and click on the first result.... well don't, or have fun with it.

fear

Last night I was thinking about the quote "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself." and wondered what life would be like if nobody was scared of anything. People wouldn't be scared of falling, or getting in trouble, or of spiders or anything like that and everybody would start doing things they normally wouldn't, maybe things that were more dangerous.........

concert

Yesterday at school we had a band and choir concert. My sister told me her friend got so bored she counted how many people were picking their nose. Her count? 50. I guess not everyone was super into the concert.

cool

On my walk home from school today I was in a bad mood because I was cold, carrying a box of coffee, and there was snow in my shoe. A few blocks from my house, one lady who passed me said "I like your hat. You're cool!". Made my day a bit better.

aahhhh

still need a history day project!

SNOW!

Last Saturday, we got about 2 ft of snow and it was (is) awesome. Except for shoveling. That's not cool. Anyways, ski practice and the swimmeet was canceled for me, so I got to be lazy all weekend, and today, too, because we had a snowday. Our street wasn't plowed until 2 hours ago, and on Saturday I walked through the blizzard and up to bread and chocolate for hot coco with pebbles. It took me 20 mins to walk the 3 (about) blocks back to my house. That was my weekend. yay.....

ummmm.... uhhh......

So you know how, like, 5 hours ago I titled a post 'hazard' and didn't finish it? Well I homestly don't remember what I was going to say, and I will post about it if I ever remember what i was going to say.

Sorry that last post was a fail. I,ll finish/write it letter

super mushroom

Last night i had another weird dream. So it started out at school, and me and my pet rabbit (why a rabbit, i don't know, I don't even own one) were writing a skit in Spanish class. Then it got all twisted and I (and the bunny) was on this grassy cliff overhang, and fell onto another overhang, much lower, rocky, and on it were my Spanish teacher, Luna Lovegood, Olivander, and a few other randoms. I asked Luna how to get off the cliff and she went all creepy and said ''you will never escape if you can't answer the question right before the force field forms, and if you don't you will be trapped forever!" The force field was already forming, and I didn't know the answer, so I was freaking out and then my rabbit turned into a giant mushroom and bounced me up to the top a the cliff. Then i was in my house and i looked out the window and the rest of my family was cross-country skiing down the street.

salt

Today at school, on a table, there was a container of salt. On the back it said "for the use of normal, healthy people only". I wonder what their definition of 'normal' is...

countdown

Hey so I just added a countdown to Christmas eve on the sidebar... I tried to get Christmas but this is what I got. Just add 24 hrs and it's all good... I think.

Bandit the Snowman

Today I was at skiing and they were making snow and blowing it all over the place. By the time I was halfway done with practice, i was completely covered in a thin layer of snow, and it took about half an hour for the snow to melt out of my hair... Bandit the snowman!

umm.... dream again

So since i have nothing to post about right now... I'm going to post about the dream i had last night. It wasn't very exciting and all i remember is being in a tree and somebody else winning the butternut squash....


another weird word:
winklepicker: "usually refers to a style of shoe or boot worn in the 1950s onward by both male and female British rock and roll fans."

I don't know.... I found it on the internet

swimmeet

Oh my gosh I'm so mad right now becuz I just got back from a swimmeet, and i got second on two races (100m free, 100m back) by 20 miliseconds! If i had gone 21 miliseconds faster i would've won! If you were first, you got a free icecream token, and i didn't get icecream by 20 miliseconds. That is crazy.

Lutefisk

Last week, I helped out at my grandparent's church's lutefisk dinner (for anybody who doesn't know, lutefisk is fish that people soak in butter and other sauce that is a traditional sidedish in Norway and Sweden). During the dinner, their priest sang songs and everybody sang along. One went something like this:

Oh lutefisk, oh lutefisk,
How horrid your aroma.
Oh lutefisk, oh lutefisk,
you put me in a coma.
You smell like glue,
and taste like shoe...

And ended with: I guess I'll eat you anyway...
Or something similar, to the tune of ''Oh Christmas Tree"

watermelon

Today, I went to a website with a color changing watermelon... I'm honestly wondering why somebody bothered to make this site... http://www.unliketherest.com/
On Halloween, my family sang Christmas carols, and last night (Thanksgiving) we made ginger bread houses.

icy saturday

Last Saturday, It was super icy out. The streets and sidewalks were completely covered in ice, and it was the kind you don't see until you've slipped on it. So when my sister went outside, she fell right away. Then, later, all of us were out there sliding around. It was awesome. On the down side, there were more than 370 car crashes in Minnesota, and the Vikings failed their game.

super duper frustrating board game

In religion, we had to make board games as a project on the unit we were learning about. I was playing these other people's board game, and it was sooooo frustrating because there were four corners, each with a star or start on it. If you landed on a space with a question on it, if you got the question right, you could move to the next star. But the problem was, if you landed on a star, you had to move back to the one before it. So every time you got a question right, you had to go back, like 10 spaces. So basically you never moved anywhere. And the start/finish was on a star too, and the goal of the game was to go aroundas many times as you could. aka: it had no end. Oh. my. gosh. most. frustrating. game. ever.

monkeys!

So on my mom's ipad, we have this game called fruit ninja (funnest game ever!) and when you finish the game, it gives you a random fruit fact. Appearently, sometimes trained monkeys are used to harvest coconuts.

In Morocco, camel races are a popular sport, since they can run as fast as horses and camel fights also attract a large audience. (useless knowledge sidebar)

snow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So the night before last I woke up at like 2am and it was snowing. By the time I got out of bed @ 7:30, it was still snowing. Then I got in the car with my mom and sister and drove for 45 minuets (usually a 25 minute drive) to the ski hill for dry land, and it snowed the whole way and the whole time i was there. And it was still snowing on the way back. It continued to snow for most of the rest of the day.

mars...........

Okay so in science we are learning about the planets and my teacher told us how NASA is considering terraforming mars (turning it into another earth) since there could have been life there long ago and it could be kind of like an extinct earth so we could possibly live there. And that got me thinking, what if mars was exactly like earth, and the marsians thought," oh no, our planet is being destroyed, we should terraform another so we could move there", and made earth?And then they die off before we know about them. And so we were actually made from microorganisms the marsians sent over and we are thinking of doing the same thing back and it's just this ongoing cycle? Ahh! confusing.

poster

So today i stayed after school for 45 minuets. In that time, Pebbles and I painted a huge, like, 15 foot long poster and splatter painted it (and the classroom floor, desks, and ourselves) in neon pink and orange for our school service project, coins for cancer.

dog.

So when I was walking home from school, I was about to cross the street, but had to wait because a man sitting on a skateboard was being pulled by his tiny (like foot tall) dog. So many questions.

Facebook Dream

So the other night I had a dream about Facebook (hence the title), which is strange because I don't have or want a facebook. So, in my dream, I was going to the facebook headquarters to get a facebook (duh). To get there, I had to ride on a bicycle from 1950 down this long dirt road until I got to the facebook building, which was huge and grey. Inside there was this HUGE pond/pool/lake right in the middle and about 5 floors around it like a stadium. Also there were huge tv screens everywhere, advertizing kids birthday parties. There were seriously pictures of little fat kids with balloons saying "I had my birthday at Facebook!". Soooo weird.

Island Dream

So last night, I had a dream. In my dream, Global Warming was causing the water on the lake at my cabin to evaporate and little tropical islands were popping up (which is not normal for Northern Minnesota). So we went and explored them. Turns out they were inhabitated by purple dinosaurs.

Halloween @ School

So on Friday at school, we celebrated Halloween in the afternoon. For 6th and 7th hour we go to wear our costumes during class (but i didn't ) and after we got to just walk around and talk to friends and watch twilight zone and play cards. It was really weird because the math teacher put on the regular uniform we are supposed to wear: Blue oxford shirt, Grey and navy plaid skirt (that must go down to the knees), and white knee-highs as a Halloween costume It was so strange. Then the social studies teacher wore his old national park worker uniform, the science teacher was a green crayon, and the English and Lit teacher just carried around a whip all day.

Creeper Halloween Store

So today when I went shopping for a Halloween costume, I went to this creepy store, where they had this huge zombie-demon baby display, a whole wall devoted to people who want to be Lady Gaga, another creepy zombie that crawled towards you on the floor, and "A life size and very realistic" model of Michel Myers (But only while supplies last). Made me wonder who would buy that sort of stuff. Not me.

Costume


So today I got my Halloween Costume. Spongebob Squarepants.

New followers gadget on sidebar! So now if you follow my blog you are also on my blog! = )

grass trimming

So on the drive back from my cabin, we passed this billboard that said "affordable grass trimming, only $149.99" Why not just cut your own lawn? Most people who have a lawn have their own lawn mower. No need to pay $150 dollars.

ninjas

At my cabin over the weekend, me and my younger sister spent half an hour pretending to be ninjas and stalked my cousin through the woods. So much fun.

Fruit snack

Today I wondered what a peanut butter flavored fruit snack would taste like.... but then I thought, It would taste like peanut, wouldn't it? But you know how some fruit snacks don't taste like something says they do? Whatever.

The Apple

This post is all about apples. (which is why it is titled 'the apple')

I realized that people can cook almost anything with apples- pie, spread, lots of deserts. Yum.

"You can always count the number of seed in an apple, but never how many apples are in a seed."

"The apple never falls far from the tree."

My great uncle (I think he's my uncle) has this, like, 100 year old apple tree in his farm's yard, and he apple are all small and they taste really good. You could pick all day with 5 other people and not even come close to picking them all.

finger-fencing ninjas

So last night my school had a spagetti dinner and me and pebbles spent somewhere around an hour finger fencing and playing ninja. I was exausted later. So was pebbles. I never knew being a ninja was so hard.

Mermaid

So on the way back from a soccer game me and my dad passed this place called The Mermaid Bar and Grill. On top of it was this, like, 50 foot statue of a mermaid. Except this mermaid was scary. It was right above the door, and was holding a net over her head, as if she were going to trap you in it. She didn't look too happy either. Didn't make me want to go to that resturant.

ouch.

So today while walking into the Religon classroom, these two guys were arguing about the difference between verbal and physical assault. Then one of the goes, "okay, so if i went to Bandit and said 'I am going to grab your face and rip it off!!!!' that would be verbal assault. And if i went like this...." (and then wacks me super hard) Then I said. "THAT would be physical assault!" before he could finish. "Exactly!" he said.

N

down here in the deep blue sea....

la la la la la la...

Yeah.

tree slide

So today @ a soccer game we were playing on the park before it started and on the side of the park were these woods, and right where the two met there was a slide. It started by the park and went down into the woods and trees. It was one of those long metal ones and we all took turns going down it backwards, fowards, on our stomachs and backs, both facing backwards and fowards. It was fun.

squirrell toss

Today I was visiting my friend at her university. While walking through campus we saw a sign that said "Please do not attempt to throw the squirrels." I'm oh so very curious. MLIA

Spanish story


So today in Spanish, we made up a story. It was about a 'chica' named La Fonda who was magnificent and fat. She lived in Madagascar. She wanted 2 "gatos azules" ( blue cats) but there were no blue cats in Madagascar, so La Fonda goes to Russia. In Russia, she meets a 'chico' named Marty, who is very handsome. He has two purple, cats, not blue ones. Oh no! La Fonda is sad.

kick

So today in science, this guy stepped on my foot. A minute or so later, he goes to the teacher, and said, "Bandit kicked me!" (bandit because I'm not supposed to use my real name on the internet) And I said, "no, he stepped on my foot!" but appearently, she didn't hear me, because she said "Well, she should have kicked you harder!". Made me laugh.

So next Tuesdsay, I have a test on the human body. All the systems and every single little part of every one. The brain and nervous system, the heart, the immune system, the lungs, the skeletal and muscular systems. Not fun.

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Today, my mom told me that when I was little, I thought that eggs were bouncy balls. Apparently, I was very much determined to find a "bouncy ball" that would actually bouce and not break. My mom had to put a lock on the refridgerator. MLIA.

mlia

Today was the last day of high school. At the senior luncheon, my freshman language arts teacher walked around and handed us letters that we had written ourselves three years previously. Most of the kids had "good luck" and "way to go" written in theirs. Mine was filled with glitter, doodles of my algebra teacher and a dollar. On the back was written "THE GAME." Have I always been this awesome? MLIA


Darn it I just lost the game!!!

Pray for you

So there's this song called "Pray for you" and it's really funny because it's about this guy who's kinda depressed and mad at this girl, so he decides to do what the preist tells him, and pray for her. And he prays for all these bad things to happen to her.


"I pray your brakes blow out running down a hill,
I pray a flower pot falls from the window sill,
And knocks you on the head like I'd like to.
I pray your birthday comes and no one calls,
I pray you're flying high, when your engine stalls,
I pray all your dreams, never come true.
Just know where ever you are, Honey
I pray for you

It has been raining ALL DAY and we have been on flood watch ALL DAY and I have been super tired ALL DAY.

English Skit

So in Engish we have to do a skit where one person can only speak in one kind of sentence. (exclamatory, interrogative, imperative, decalarative, If you don't know what those are, I don't really care). Anyways, our skit is a newscast about a boy named Billy whose limbs get eaten off by bedbugs, and then he dies. And there is this one guy in our group who speaks in a really weird accent. And our sk4it isn't done yet, so I should probably go work on it... and study 4 science... and do my lit homework...wait , o my gosh I have lit homework!!!!!! Gotta go!

hello

Today I noticed that when people answer the phone and talk to someone, most will say "hello". But If you are actually talking to someone, most people will say "hi"

Cheese stick theif.

So today @ lunch, I ate may sandwich, then my cookie, and then I started to unwrap my cheese stick. I unwrapped it, and as soon as it was out, this guy walked by and took it out of my hand, and kept walking. So I yelled at him,
"Hey, you just stole my cheese stick!".
"I know. Can I have it?"
"No!" So then he rips it in half, looks at the pieces for a minute, then says,
"Here, you can have the bigger half."
I gave up and took the bigger half.

i have a silent conversation with a cat

Today, on my walk home from school, I passed a big black and white cat. It opened it's mouth and closed it again, and looked at me. I mouthed the word "meow". It did the same thing. And the cycle repeated 3 more times before the cat looked at me, and walked away. I'm sort of beginning to wonder what I said to the cat...

Sleepover @ IHOP

So the other day my friend told me a true story. It went like this.
She and her family were driving back from a vacation somewhere, and were going to stop for the night. All of the hotels were full, and when they asked if they could sleep in the lobby ( Because they didn't all want to sleep in their car) The lady @ the desk said "the lobby is for hotel guests only". And then, as they were driving away, their car broke down. They were right by a 24 hour IHOP, so She and her brother and their parents slept in the booths and got free coffee in the morning.

NB again

I don't know if i like this one as much....

adding on to the last post....

When I told my sister and her friend about this, my sister asked if I'd rather go to jail or get kicked out of the country. I said I'd probably go out of the country because I could just go right on the edge of Canada and still be pretty close to my family and Minnesota.

Motley Crue was kicked out of Germany in 1984. Their offense? Throwing mattresses out of hotel windows and watching them bounce off cars.


I would be so mad If i got kicked out of the us for throwing mattresses out a window.

mlia again

So, the other day in my science class my teacher was rambling on about how things fly. When he realised I wasn't paying attention he looked over and asked "Maxine! What causes some things to have the ability to fly?" Without thinking twice I replied, "Wingardium Leviosa?" My teacher looked at the green polo I was wearing and shouted, "Ten Points to Slytherin!"

About 10 minuets ago I played chess against the computer. I lost after 5 moves. And it said where it was moving to in a very annoying computer voice. " queen-to-G-4" It was really annoying.

Tootsie Pop



So you know that commercial for tootsie pops that says, "How many licks does it take to get to the center? The world may never know!" ? Well yesterday I got bored and decided to find out. It took 189 licks and lots of patience to get to the center. It was frustrating because I couldn't suck on it, because that isn't licking, and I couldn't do anything else while I was licking it because I needed to count. 189.

zucchini

Yesterday, my mom bought my younger sister a little pink two-piece swimsuit. When my other sister asked her if she liked her bikini, she said, "This is called a zucchini??" And my other one says no, it's called a bikini. Later in the car, my younger sister asks my mom why her swimsuit is called a zucchini. she just laughed and said she didn't know.

So, I was watching phineas and ferb this morning, and they were playing the episode about aglets. (Aglets are the little piece of plastic on the ends of shoe laces) and were talking about how aglets are one of the most un-famous and most used inventions. And now I have the song stuck in my head... A-G-L-E-T, Don't forget it.....

In my dream, Professor Snape (from Harry Potter) somehow got my phone number and kept texting me, telling me how much trouble I was in for finding is secret hiding place in the muggle world, which, appearently, is located in the second floor of my school. It was kind of creepy.

Muffin Tree


So last time I was @ my cabin, my younger sister and cousin were talking about how awesome it would be if there were muffin trees, where you could just walk outside in the morning, and pick a perfect blueberry muffin off of a tree. I agree. It would be awesome. : )

New backround

pool

So today I was at a water park/ pool with two of my friends. There were these creepy people who kept following us and asking us what our names were and stuff like that. My friends decided to lie about who they are, just for fun. One became Becca, a 14 (going on 15) year old with a boyfriend named Joe, who was in Minnesota to visit her cousins, and the other became Julia, also 14 and going into 9th grade. The first girl is actually 12 and the second 13. I decided not to lie at all. The creepy people believed every word of what my friends said (lies!) and refused to believe that I lived in Minnesota, or that I was 12. I insisted that I knew where I lived, I lived in Minnesota and I know how old I am and that I know my own name (which they didn't really believe either). Isn't it strange they only believed the lies??? Appearently, my friends are better at lying then I am at telling the truth.

Today, I slipped over a sign that said "wet floor, don't slip".

So I was with pebbles and another friend at pebbles' house a while ago. Pebbles and her brother were arguing and insulting each other. Me and the other girl were just sitting there watching. After pebbles said something, she said "can I get a what what?!" "And me and the other girl just sit there. Then a few minuets later, She says something really confusing. And me and the other girl both say what. Her brother started cracking up. It took us a minute to figure out why.

fire truck

Today I learned the evolutionary way to tell why fire trucks are red... ...Cause there's eight wheels on them and four people, and four plus eight is twelve, and twelve is a foot and a foot is a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth is a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth is a ship, and ships sail the ocean and in the ocean are fish and fish have fins, and the Finns fought the Russians and the Russians were red and fire trucks are always rushin' around therefore they must be red.

-MLIA

That was hard and confusing for me to read. Wow. I never knew it was that complicated. Why can't they just be red???

oops

So I had a good post idea, but then I lost it. So now this is a post about nothing. Yeah.

hot dog people vs. bratwurst people




So I was talking with these two guys from my grade a while ago. Then, one if them says, "you're one of those hot dog people, aren't you?" And I said kinda, but other stuff is okay too. Then the other one is all "how dare you! bratwurst is amazing, and way better than hotdogs. I said whatever, and the they told me how annoyed they were that at the state fair and places like that, they only have hotdog stands, and no bratwurst. And then they started telling me how they were going to open a bratwurst store withe bratwurst from all over the world, from places like poland and belgium and germany, and how it was going to be super aweswome. I just told them to go for it. Whatever.

summer stretch

This summer I am doing this summer stretch thing with the church where you volunteer somewhere in the morning and go on a field trip in the afternoon. So 2 days ago we went to como zoo for our field trip. We looked at all the animals and stuff and ate cotton candy. It got kinda boring but they had the new polar bear exhibit open and there were also puffins. : )

I designed this new template. Be honest, is it better than before??? If you don't like the backround I can change it....

shoes.

You know what's weird? How when you're driving down the street/road/highway, and you see this random shoe. Sometimes is a flip flop or sandal, or some running shoes or high heeled ones. It bugs me because, like, who leaves one of their shoes on the side of the road. Then they only have one left. Someone somewhere is walking around with one shoe. Haha.

Dream

The other night I had a dream. I was on a cool bike, I was a green dinosaur thing, and I kept getting hit by these green and red shells, getting struck by lightning, and slipping over banana peels (what kind of person leaves those on the ground). I bet you guys can guess where I was.

FIELD DAY

So today at school it was field day where the 7th graders (me) ran stations with games. Me and another girl did water medic. Which is medic, which is basically medic with the little water squishy balls- splash balls. Yeah. it was cool. I got soaked even though I wasn't playing and we soaked the hose person with a bucket of water. It was awesome. And guess what? I only have 4.5 days of school left!

silly putty

Silly Putty started as a mistake in a New Haven laboratory, and was turned into a consumer hit in the 1960s. According to engineers, Silly Putty is a self-contradiction. Chemically, it is a liquid, but it resembles a solid. The molecular structure will stretch if the structure is slowly pulled. But if tugged, it snaps apart. The toy has a rebound capacity of 75 to 80 percent, whereas a rubber ball has only about 50-percent capacity. A silicon derivative, Silly Putty won’t rot; it can withstand temperatures from minus 700 Fahrenheit to hundreds of degrees above zero. On top of all that, it picks up newsprint, which often appears sharper than the original.

cool huh?

still

There is still syrup on my shoe. It makes me mad.

The blueberry flavored banana.

One day me and pebbles were at the ywca and they were giving us bananas and apples. I took and apple, and pebbles a banana. After she got it, she came up to me and told me that she was about to ask what flavor they were. I laughed. So now every banana has a flavor. Most commonly you will get a blueberry flavored one, sometimes raspberry. (since banana things are sometimes gross no bananas are banana flavored.) (School bananas are just banana flavored) But occasionally you will get a pineapple or pomeranegrate one. Those are good.

Syrup spiller

So the other day was french toast day at school. Which means syrup. So the french toast was good and then I went to ump the trash on my tray and go out to recess. While I was dumping my tray, somebody spilled syrup on my shoe. Later I had to re-tie my shoe. The syrup had, like, glued the knot together. I had to pick at it to untie it. And then I had to tie my shoe. This involves grabbing the laces. Sticky grossness. If that's a word. And now, 4 days later there is still syrup on my shoe, it still is gross, and it still smells like syrup when I tie my shoe.

Today, I wondered if an octopus with one leg would be called a unipus

Today I bumped into the wall and said sorry

Last night, I couldn't get to sleep and I even started counting sheep. I then started imagining the sheep doing things like somersaults and ninja kicks while they were jumping over the fence. It just kept me awake for longer.

Today I got bored so I was looking up weird phobias. When I came across a page about Anatidaephobia, the fear of being watched by a duck, I noticed a rather large add to the left for Aflac Insurance. And the duck was staring right at me

So yeah. That's it.

There is this website called My Life Is Average (MLIA) where people post funny stories. Here is one of my favorites.

"Today I was ironing some cloths. Then I noticed that the ironing board had a wrinkle in it. I laugh at the irony. Then I laugh because "irony" has the word iron in it."


Quote: "I once had a friend he's an insect,
You'd call him "misquito" or "fly",
I wanted to keep him forever,
But suddenly one day he died.

Soup! Soup! He drowned in my bowl of so-o-u-p! Soup! Soup! He drowned in my bowl of soup!

La profesora de espanol

(Bread!)My spanish teacher is sort of weird. She is mad at us for talking most of the time, and the other times she is being weird. She randomly starts singing these spanish songs we learned like "pan!" (Bread!) and "Bistic" (Steak!). They are both really weird songs.

"Pan!" is about these people who go to a mexican restruant but want bread with butter. They demand bread and butter, and the waiter gives them chips and salsa and they say "NO!!! Tenemos hambre. Tenemos much hambre. "
(no! I'm hungry! I'm hungry!)

"Bistic!" is about this wacko frog that wants stake, and dessert and says "YIP!!!".
"bistic! bistic! quiero, quiero! (Steak! Steak! I want, I want)

Odd.
Here's a line from pan.

Mesera, por favor Waitress, please
yo solo pido pan I only want bread
pido pan com mantequilla. I want bread with butter.

Kitchen Party!!!

So at wolf ridge there was this thing called KP (Kitchen Party) Where every few days you went to the cafeteria early to serve the food for everybody else and then wash the tables and sweep. Not fun. One time I was serving gravy, and people were getting all mad at me because I was pouring it where they didn't want it. They didn't tell me, so I just poured it on. Then they guy next to me (served veggies) started singing about how "Eating veggies and being nutricious makes you delicious". Then the guy serving salad threw lettuce into the gravy and it got messy and gross.

Wolf Ridge

So for the past week I was at Wolf Ridge, the Environmental Learning Center. It was tons of fun. So I guess I'm just going to post stories from there for a while.

Orienteering: I orienteered withthis other girl in my grade. There were 12 points we needed to find with our compass and map. So we punched the starting point stamp into our paper. Then we found one more. That was it. We got Seriously, seriously lost. We outside three of the boundries, I just gave up and wandered our way back. We ran into Wolf Kill Hill, where the wolves drag the roadkill and eat it, Found 2 rivers and a marsh (none of which were on the map) Sat on a rock and looked at the lichen on it, and went up the stairs of health (and Fitness) and through campus. The Stairs of health are also known as the stairs of death. There are 245 of them, winding up the side of a steep hill. NOT FUN. If you people ever go there, hope you don't have to go up the stairs.

Thai Food

So yesterday I was over at our friend's house. There are two kids there, about the same age as two of my younger sisters. The older of the two had a neighbor over. Me, my three sisters, the two other girs and their friend (all the kids, our parents were in the basement band-practiceing and the moms were other places) were hungry. So the older girl's friend pulled out her cell phone, and called her family's thai restuant. Fifteen minutes later, her grandma drives up with egg rolls, pa thai, curry, chicken, and these cream filled things. We all had a Thai food picnic without the adults knowing. They didn;t really care. It was good food. Yum.

hello kitty guy

So today I (me and my family) were driving through downtown Minneapolis. I was looking out the window, and at all the people walking by in suits and ties. I was sort of bored. Then this other guy walks buy. He was wearing jeans, a black t-shirt, and, a hello kitty belt. It seriously had a big hello kitty face on it. It made me laugh.

Wolf Ridge

So, guess what? In 9 days I (and the rest of my grade) get to go to Wolf Ridge (Enviromental Learning Center) For a week! Yeah! We get to do lots of stuff, take classes, get pushed off a cliff (according to older people who have been there) and get plopped in the middle of the forest with a compass and a map and have to find our way back to civilization. Anyways I think it's going to be lots of fun.

Quote: If I have to wait any longer, I might blow up!
Did you blow up yet??

Cow suit.

So today I was at a easter brunch at my grandparent's country club. This little kid group called the Splatter Sisters were performing and this on lady on the Splatter Sisters asked me to dress up like a cow for one of their songs. I said sure, whatever. So she handed me a cow suit, complete with mask-like thing. So I put it on. This one lady tells me I look "udderly riddicilus" (yes, I know it's spelled wrong), I say thanks anyways. The Splatter Sisters introduce my as "Our speical guest, the dancing cow!" So I go up on stage and dance with the band in the cow suit. I felt weird, But whatever.
True story. No joke.

April fool's day joke.

After school yesterday (April fools day) my friend ran up to me and said "Wait, I've gotta pull my exploding pen trick on somebody." So I say okay, but only for a minute, I want to go home. She ran up to this guy and said "Will you open this pen for me?" and handed it to him. He looks at it and shouts "Ahh! It's one of those exploding pens, I'm not falling for that." and throws it to the ground.

friend: What are you talking about?
other guy: "The pen will explode!
friend: no it won't
other guy: Here! Take this end! (gives one end of pen to his friend)
guy's friend: why?
other guy: because we need to open this exploding pen. On the count of three 1, 2, 3... (pen slips out of his hand, doesn't open)
guy's friend: Let's open it. 1...2...3...
BOOM (both jump back shouting "O MY GOSH!")
other guy: I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT! I'M TELOKENISIS!

I was so glad I had stayed that extra minute. It was worth it.

everybody clap your Hands

In class this one time, this guy yells "EVERYBODY CLAP YOUR HANDS!!!" and guess what happened? Everybody aside from the teacher started clapping in sync. It was awesome. Then today a police car drove past school with it's siren on. Some people got up and ran to the window. (not me) Then the teacher said "you know, it's always the boys who run to the window when a police car goes by..." Then a bunch of police cars go by. One boy jumps up, runs to the window and yells, "IT'S A CAR CHASE! And practically everybody (not me, again. too lazy) got up and ran to the window.

My amazing hat

So I was walking home from school today, and wearing my hat. It's red, yellow, pink, and purple and has 3 spikes on top. it's awesome. Anyways, I was walking and across the street there were two girls skipping and laughing. One of them shouts "HI!" so I say hi back. Then one says "I like your hat" I say "thanks" the other one says "yeah, it's the bomb!" and then the other one says, No, it's DA BOMB!!" then they start laughing and skipping again.

OJ

This happened sort of a long time ago, but here it is.
One day I got home from school, and I wanted a glass of orange juice. So I went to the fridge and got the container and put it on top of my head. (I wanted to see how long I could balance it up there). And went to the cupboard to get a cup. I got the cup. But where was the orange juice? I started looking for it. Then it fell off of my head. I felt really stupid and was amazed that I had balanced it up there for so long. I got my OJ. (Yay!)
By the way, whoever named oranges "oranges" must have been very creative.
"Look at this fruit! It's so... orange! I shall call it an..... orange! Yes!"

Mint!!! cherry.

Yesterday I bought these mints. They tasted like cherry. I am seriously confused.

The Amazing immortal......jellyfish

The turritopsis nutricula species of jellyfish is capable of cycling from a mature adult stage to an immature polyp stage and back again, there may be no natural limit to its life span. It cant basically make its self a little baby jelly fish again after being a adult. They are the only known animals that can do this. They are immortal.

The key lies in a process called transdifferentiation, where one type of cell is transformed into another type of cell. Some animals can undergo limited transdifferetiation,like salamanders, which can grow back their tail. This Jellyfish, can regenerate its entire body over and over again.

Because they are able to bypass death, the number of individuals is spiking. These Jellyfish are now found in oceans around the world. It's kinda creepy. Of all things, our world is being taken over by immortal jellyfish. It is kind of cool though. They don't just die.

Large vs. Big

So yesterday I noticed that we don't use the word "large" for anything other than food.
"I'd like to order a large pepperoni pizza."
"I'd like a large chocolate shake"

McDonalds Person: "Hi this is McDonalds, what would you like to order?"

Customer: "Yeah, hi, I'd like a large cheese burger with a large serving of french fries and a large coke."

McDonalds Person: "Anything else?"

Customer: "Yes, I'd like a large vanilla ice cream cone."


See? We say "Big". That is a big building. Wow, that's really big! Etc. Etc.
