My crazy weekend

Wattup, Everybody!

This past weekend was a blast! My parent's went out of town. Actually, they went out of state. I made up a song about it... on a date, out of state. On a date, out of state. Wooooooooooooooo. You get it. My little sister went to a friends' house for the weekend, and I stayed home! Weehaw!!! I hung out with my friend Claira up until 11:05, when I kicked her out of my house. See how I did that? MY house! Ha! Anyway, then my friend Madeline and her family came over. We had lunch, and went to Cat's Pajamas, which is a clothing exchange that happens every year in March in the small town I live in. After that, Madeline and I got dropped off at a make-up dance class, only to find that it had been canceled, and the phone number they called to reach me, was the old number for our old phone. Luckily, there were cookies and cupcakes and shortbread to gaze upon. I did a lot of gazing in the time it took to call my house (which was where my friend's mother was) about twenty times with no one answering. We had to wait an hour and a half until she arrived to pick us up. "Aren't you a bit early? Doesn't it end at 4:30?" She asked. "NO!" Was our answer. They went home, leaving me alone again. Then, my friend Abby came over!!! We got burritos and tacos, and watched a Bollywood movie called Paheli. It's awesome. You should watch it. In the morning, we made pancakes with chocolate chips in them, whipped cream on top, and syrup all over it. With a sausage on the side, of course. Then, we watched another Bollywood movie. Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. Also awesome. Also watch it. Then, my parents got home. YAAAAAAAAAY!
And that was my awesome weekend!

Fictional poem by myself

My Picture Wall

My picture wall, above my bed, where I can see all my friends. I can see my dog Cali, her tongue sticking out, it was a hot day, even if it was autumn. I can see myself standing under a tree, the same tree where Angel broke her arm, she tried to jump off her horse into the tree, but she fell down. I can see the woman who owned the hotel in St. Paul. The same hotel where I found a knife under the mattress.

Farewell, Pockets

My friend, Pockets (only nickname used here), is soon to be moving to Main for a year. Pockets, if you are reading this, you are probably thinking something like, "Oh no she didn't!" But, I wanted to write about you since I'm not going to be seeing you for a year. I hope you have a wonderful time, send me letters, and of course, you can email me, but snail mail is so much more fun. I have a snoggestion, you should start a blog so you can keep me and Nightpoo (nickname for other friend used here) posted on your doings. You will be attending public school, correct? Which is going to be a change (we are both home schooled). Have fun, keep being odd, and eat pickles! (inside joke)
Here's to you, Back Pockets!

A work-in-progress story.

Hello, guys! This is a work-in-progress story that I'm writing. Here is the first chapter. I thought you might want to see it. So, here goes!

Chapter one

She’s mad at me. I knew she would be. I was expecting this. But I didn’t know how mad she would get. I run across a log over a small creek and keep running. I don’t want her to catch me. She runs right through the creek, silver high heels and all. Her dress gets muddy but she keeps running after me. I spot a tall tree and rush up it, she can follow me, but not in her getup. 

“HANNAH! YOU GET BACK HERE!” I keep climbing until I’m way up in the tree, and a good four feet above her head. Her heels have sunk into the dirt, her dress torn by brambles. Her hair has come down from her updo and her mascara is running. I’ve never seen my sister this mad. 
“HANNAH! WHY?! WHY DID YOU DO THAT?!” She’s not going to listen to me if I tell her why. She won’t believe me. 
“I’m sorry, Courtney. You don’t understand. I had to do it.” I’m right. She doesn’t listen. 
“OH! YOU HAD TO DO IT! YEAH, RIGHT! I DON’T UNDERSTAND, HANNAH! YOU LITTLE RAT! WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU DO THIS?!” She’s scratched her face, and I can see white lines on her red cheeks where her manicured nails have dug into the flesh. “You wouldn’t understand.” I say. 
“OH, I UNDERSTAND! I UNDERSTAND PERFECTLY.” She’s glaring at me and trying to climb up to me. I know that if she catches me, she’ll scratch me worst than she’s scratched her face. 
“WHY DID YOU HAVE TO RUIN MY WEDDING?!” I ruined her wedding because Ben, her would-be husband is a bad person.

Things I like about summer

It's true, I totally dislike summer. The only things I really really like about it, is lemonade, swimming, cicadas, fireflies, sleeping outside, going on the roof, toenail-painting, going barefoot, leaving windows open, turning on fans, sleeping with no blankets, shorts, tank tops, yoga outside, warm wind, summer dresses, vacation, thunderstorms, ice cream, eating outside, sleeping all day, peepers.

If I can think of more, I will let you guys know.

Blog views from around the world!

So I was looking on the stats on my blog that you are currently on right now, if you are reading this, and I found out that I can see what countries some of the people who read my blog are from! Hi, guys! I had no idea you were there! That's great! You can comment too, y'know! Make yourselves heard on mah blog, we can be friends!

Here are all the countries I found on my blog's stats:

United States
United Kingdom

WOW. I HAD NO IDEA MY BLOG WAS SO POPULAR! Maybe it's not that popular, but what the heck!!!
If you are reading my blog, and you are from one these countries, please let me know which one! Don't be shy.


Springtime approaches

Hey, guys. So we can all agree that we want winter to be over, right? I, at least, am tired of the cold weather. A couple days ago, it was, like, 68 degrees, and I got really happy!!!! But then it got in the 40s again.... pooooooooop.
I was walking my neighbor's dog, Homer, a week ago, and I saw crocuses in somebody's yard. There were purple ones, orange ones, white ones! And not too long ago, crocuses started growing in my yard!!!!!!!!! Only orange ones, but heck! They're lovely, and orange is my favorite color!
I know I want it to get warmer, but I also don't particularly like summer, it's too warm and humid, and I always smell bad, and then there's the matter of Ticks. My favorite season is Autumn.
Comment what your favorite season is, and if you are planning any summer vacations, and if so, where you may be going!

Joke #1:
Two muffins get put in the oven. One muffin turns to the other and says, "Man, it's hot in here." The other one says, "AAAAHHHH! A TALKING MUFFIN!"

Joke #2:
A mom goes shopping and leaves the dad to watch TV and the kid to play "tea" with her plastic tea set. While she's gone, the kid brings "tea" to the dad, who thinks it's adorable. Finally, when the mom gets home, the dad shows her what their kid has been doing all afternoon. She says, "Didn't you realize that the only place she can reach is the toilet bowl?"

Crafting package surprise

Two days ago, my mom and sister and I received a package. It was full of fabric and crafting supplies. It was heaven! It was from some place in Seattle, but we don't know who from. We have our suspects, though. In the package, there were these little studs things that you can put on your clothing. I painted some, and put them on my shorts. 

I didn't put the studs in any real pattern. and I left three of them unpainted.

This one I just took with an effect on Photobooth. I think it looks pretty cool.

Comment if you want to know what other crafty stuff I got! 

XOXO, Eliza

More on the trip to Virginia!

Hey, guys! I'm not sure if I've told you this already, but we went to a couple of thrift stores while in Richmond and I got my awesome high tops (I told you about them, didn't I) I got a lovely blue sweater (suuuper soooft!!!!) But that was only the first thrift shop! On the last day there, we went to this huge Goodwill all the way across town. It was worth the long drive, I didn't get a ton of stuff, but I got some amazing junk, people! I got a huge purple sweatshirt and a lovely navy dress. My friend Awen found a shirt with Kermit The Frog on a rainbow and it's good to be green! written underneath. Me and Anwen also made a video that she uploaded to YouTube! Watch it here!  If you watch it, and look in the description, you see that she linked to my blog! What a darling person she is!

I'll have some photos of my trip soon!

11:10 AM

We are about to venture out into the world and go swimming at the indoor pool! This pool is cleaned with salt, so no chlorine!
Yesterday, we went to Carytown and got ice cream at Bev's and went window shopping at every one's favorite vintage clothing store, Bygones! We also went to Chop Suey Books and I found this huge book about Hollywood costumes, but it was $20.00, so I didn't get it. We also went to the biggest goodwill EVAR!!!! I scored a blue sweater and .... drum role, please .... purple high-top converse!!!

2:41 PM

So, we are back from the swimming pool! It was super cool! Though, the deepest part was only 4 feet and 6 inches. There was a tiny lazy river and you could jump in front of this jet of water and it would push you down it. I liked to flout down the lazy river on my back. There was a water slide, too, which I did not go on.

I will tell you guys everything else later, because now I have to go eat lunch.
