Today me and my mom went through a car wash in my mom's convertible. Yes, the top was up (duh), but even then we got wet, because there were cracks between the windows and top. So when it went through the 'high power rinse cycle' it was like I'd just walked through a sprinkler. Wet. But it was kinda funny.

When I volunteered at Vacation Bible School, we went on field trips every afternoon. On our way back from the zoo one day, me and my friend sat with a cute little girl (7-8 years old) who absolutely loved my friend. Anyways, my friend was doing her chicken impression for the girl (bok, bok, bok). Then the little girl says, "boogly boogly bok!". We both asked her what that was. She told us it was an alien chicken. Because aliens say 'boogly boogly' and chickens say 'bok'.

Yesterday at me and two friends were in line for a Tilt-a-Whirl. Waiting behind us in line was a little boy (probably about 5 or 6) and his mom. The mom asked, "So honey what does this one do?". The boy just said "It tilts and whirls". Very discriptive kid.

So, at Vacation Bible School, there is a lot of singing. One of the songs sounds like it came out of a scary movie, or a Scooby Doo chase scene. "God is watching watching over you. 24/7 watching over you. Your life is in His hands, He's got great big plans because He's watching over you". Even though I know the song and God have good intentions, it still sounds creepy. When we sing this song, my friend pretends to make claws with her hands and make a creepy face, to try and suit the mood. Creepy, but it's one of the few songs all the kids sing along to.

A while ago me and my sister were talking about skiing and snowboarding (skiing's better). Anyways, we were talking and she goes, "You know that guy. . . what's his name. . . oh yeah Snow White? Yeah well he has his own half pipe!". So I said, "You mean Shaun White?". It took me a while to stop laughing.
Today, after volunteering at Vacation Bible School, my and my friend waited outside for my mom to pick us up. While splashing in puddles, she tells me how great it is to be immature again (We'd been watching little kids all day). I agree. And now my shoes are soaked.

A few days ago I was watching Extreme Couponing. These people are OBSESSED. True, they save lots of money, but they have stockpiles of food and other stuff that take up a whole room, their whole basement, and even sometimes their whole house (one mother kept the paper towels under her 5-yr-old daughters bed). One lady allowed close friends to go shopping in her basement. One said that losing her stockpile would be like losing a member of her family. Some spend 60 HOURS a week preparing for their shopping trips. These people are insane.
Last night I went to a volunteer training session for Vacation Bible School. As volunteers, we all wear matching t-shirts. So, the people running it decided that since the theme is "Panda Mania". They would make us look like pandas. I'm just praying they don't make us wear ears. . .
So today I was thinking about oranges (very creative name). Ok, so if oranges are called "oranges" because they are orange, why aren't apples called "reds" and bananas called "yellows"? My first answers was "because that would sound weird", but oranges must have sounded weird before everybody had heard of them. Why?

Dear spam emails that keep showing up in my Inbox:No, I have not had recent knee surgery, therefor I don't need to contact a Knee Replacement Lawsuit Center. In fact, I don't need to contact any law office or attorney for any reason. I don't want a "DIRECTV Limited Time Offer!", a walk-in tub or a "free" trip to Las Vegas. My teeth are fine and I don't need a new dentist. I'm not old enough to drive a car, so that rules out insurance and cars. No, I don't need a personal assistant to help with any mental heath problems I don't actually have. And no, I'm not going to give you my nonexistent credit card number. I'm good.

So yesterday I had the hiccups and was looking up possible cures. . .
- Don't do anything: just wait for the next hiccup
- Tell yourself "I'm not going to hiccup again"
- Sing loud and with heart
- Put your head on the ground and hold your breath for 10 seconds
- Swallow 3-6 times without breathing inbetween
- Say "Pineapple"
- Repeatedly tell yourself "I am not a fish"
- Rub your earlobe
- Jump out of a plane
- Breath into and out of a paper bag
- Drink dill pickle juice
- Eat a marshmallow
- Do three cartwheels with a jolly rancher in your mouth

Yesterday, me, my friend, and my sisters and their friends were watching a parade. A float representing the Science Museum and the King Tut exhibit there was going by. My younger sister yelled "GIVE ME KING TUT!". So I asked her why on earth the museum would ever give an 8-yr-old kid King Tut, when even they don't have the actual body (It never leaves Egypt). She simply said "Because I'm awesome", and continued to yell. Apparently, she wasn't awesome enough.

A while ago, two girls that go to my school were telling me about what had happened to them over the weekend. The two of them were walking down the street, and on the other side walked two kids, a baby and little girl with their mom. One of the girls (not the little ones), pointed across the street at the mother and two kids and shouted "BABY!". The mother told her daughter to get in the car, quick.

In school (which is out now =D) we have "kinder buddies", kinders who we play and spend time with throughout the year. Last week, we were playing together on the playground, and the teachers gave us cookies for a snack. My cute little buddy went to the monkey bars and did them backwards, with a cookie in her mouth (as not to drop it). She is a skilled little 6 year old.
