Pineapples!

Heyas!

So, we're having a fundraiser!
Cirque Du Be Doo, that is.
If you live in Raleigh you should come drop by!

It's at the Kroger by the goodwill.
I don't have the adress..
Email me if you want it! savysavant1[at]gmail[dot]com :D

So anyways...
Japanese pop music is awesome.
Sometimes, I really wish i was Japanese.
Their culture is just so interesting!
:/

Maybe I can be an exchange student?
Mom probably wouldn't like it though.
If only!
That would be so awesome!
I wouldn't mind going other places too though.
I'm not picky.
But Japan would be my first choice.

Where would you go?

Love,

But now its changed.

PINEAPPLES

Oh and

PEANUT BUTTER
But I don't like peanut butter (the food, not the word) very much.

What's your word?

Whatever today is, I lost track

Hello.


Today I went to a "Owls Of Hogwarts" Presentation by this guy I know who runs a Raptor rescue.
It had very little to do with Hogwarts.
But That's ok.
I got to see screech owls!
♥♥
They're my Fav.
What's yours?
Mom likes them all.

Prompt:
What toy from your childhood do you still have in your possession?

Hmm...
My baby Blanket.
I loved it to shreds.
Literally.
It's awesome.
:)
But right now, It's safe in a box with my baby memorabilia.
Sometimes, I miss it.
Do you ever miss the things that comforted you as a child?
I bet you do.
What was it that gave you a sense of safety?
What protected you from the monsters under the bed?
How long has it been since you felt that safe?
In the arms of a loved one, maybe?
Or possibly on a holiday?

Answer me honestly.
If you don't wish to do so here, send it to me here:
savvysavant1@gmail.com
I'll reply.
But only if you want me to.
Promise.

Love,
~Sav

Day 13 and 14 because I'm tired of being one behind.

Good Morning!/Afternoon!

Today we voyage home.
:)
Sad part?
I have school tomorrow.
But oh well!
Just means I get to see Gabbs again!
She's one of my bestest friends.
So bestest that I wouldn't pick her to go zombie voyaging with me.
So she wouldn't get eaten. :)

So yeah. :D
Anyways, I got to go now.
Need to finish getting ready to leave and all.

Toodleoo!

Day 12 :)

Hellu.

Today, we burried Uncle Billy.
It wasn't nearly as sad as I thought it'd be.
And the lunch afterwards was fun!
The fish was awesome.
=)

And we're leaving for home tomorrow.
I'm hoping to convince mom to get us Ihop for breakfast.
I really realy REALLY want some of their stuffed french toast!
<3
Delish.

And today at the boardwalk, I got 1560 tickets.
:D
I didn't cash them though.
I'm savingup sor something cool.
I don't know what yet though.
Mom got 3,00 and some though.
She won at poker.
But the game I played a lot, ATE my two quarters.
It didn't even shoot them like it was supposed to or anything. :/
And the pop thing got stuck, and ate another.
But it was still lots of fun!
Mom got salt water taffy, and She got me some fudge.
Mmmm.
Fudge.

Anyways, I should go.
Family and all.

Love,
~Sav

Day 11 from a Mac!

Hiyas!

So today, we're in New Jersey!
And we're Italian!
BUT WE'RE NOTHING LIKE JERSEY SHORE.
Seriously.
That show is SOOO Stupid!!!
And I only saw 2 minutes of it.

Anyways, today is the viewing, so...
And our car has some problems with the front brakes.
So Uncle Scott, the motorcycle guy, is helping my dad, the techie guy, fix it.
By themselves.
Mom and I are heating the popcorn now.
:D

They're off getting the pads and rotors (??) they need to fix it, and I'm borrowing my Uncle's Mac. This is the strangest computer I have ever seen.
But at the same time, it's pretty awesome.
BUT CONFUSING AS HELL.
I literally had to search around for 5 minutes to find the friggin browser.
This is ridiculous.
But, I guess if you know how to use it, it'd be fine.

And hey, since when has Shaggy been dating Velma?!
I don't seem to remember that in the original story line...

Anyhoodle. (I seem to use anyways a lot, so I'm mixing it up. :])
Tonight, we're staying at a hotel,
and tomorrow is with the grandparents.
So basically, I'll be sleeping on sofa couches and futons.
With Teeny Bopper.
Meh.
:/

It's pretty chilly up here, btw.
Just thought you ought to know.
Incase I come home with frostbite or something.
But It's not that bad.
Really.

And my Aunt and Uncle's town house is beautiful.
Lots of pretty stuff, and comfy furniture.
:D
This is the kind of house I want to live in.
Not necessarily the town house part, but I wouldn't mind if it was.
But the stylish, comfy house.
Welcoming...
Lived-in, without looking messy...
Warm (even if it's cold inside the house, too.)

So, how's your day going?

Mine's been pretty good so far.
Waffles for breakfast. :)
Mmmm.

Unfortunately, because of the breaks, I can't get my Zune HD until next paycheck.
Which is two weeks away.
:(
This sucks.

But there's nothing I can do.

So, I guess I'll talk to you tomorrow.
:)

Love
~Sav

P.S.
How did you like Dr. Horrible? Awesome, wasn't it?
Told you. XD

Day 10 and still going strong!

Hello!

Sorry, i don't have time to post much, but I don't know if I'll have a computer to write on when I get there. I do my best to arrange something though.

So, while I'm spending 9-11 hours in the car today, you can watch Dr. Horrible!
You can thank me later. :D

There's no prompt for today yet.

So have fun watching!!

Day 9!!! Wooo!

Yola~

Anyways, we leave tomorrow.

:D

Looong car ride ahead of me.

I only wish I had my Zune HD.
That and some other stuff...

But mostly that.

Say Hi to Jay everyone! ♥

Prompt:
What do you like most about cold weather? What do you like the least?

I like the freshness of it. It promises good memory's and holidays.
It's the feel of the earth renewing itself for a new year.
It's the feel of frostbite.

:/

Another Day (8) Another post

So, I just typed all this out, but I clicked the worng button, and accidentally deleted it so...

Hello!

We're going to the funeral on Friday.
Anyone nitice how the word Funeral has FUN in it?
I just did.
How ironic.

Little sis got a facebook page today.
I dont know about this,
But mom locked her down, sooo....

Anyways, i have a question:
Why do YOU think we have to be respectful of the dead?

I've already answered it for myself,
and had a long discussion with my family about it,
but I want to know what you think.

Let me know!!

Love,

Day 6

Hello!

I'm feeling a bit better today.
Not much, mind you, but a teeny weeny bit.

Anyways, we lighted the gas fireplace for the first time this season tonight.
It's wasn't as exciting as it sounds...
Really.
And now the house smells like burning dust. :/

But oh well. :)

Two more weeks until Thanksgiving!
Gobblegobble ♥

Mom's trying to get into the holiday spirit a little earlier than usual this year.
She's usually grumping about the Christmas music before thanksgiving, but this year, she's determined.
Or something.

You know, I never realized how much I love Christmas.
Even though I'm Pagan, We've always celebrated Christmas.
But now, mom's trying to switch us over to Yule.
That's cool. I don't mind.
I guess...
I'm just reluctant.

But I really prefer Christmas as of right now.
All of the festivity, and stuff.
But I think it might be in part to my sucky Yule last year.
Mom always gets kinda grumpy and defensive when I bring this up.
I just had a bad season last year.
It felt off.
And I wasn't as happy on Yule/Christmas morning as I usually am.

The year before was great. :)
We were in my Grandparents house, and there was lots of happiness and presents.
But last year, we were in the apartment, and my family just couldn't seem to muster up the joy.
I hope it'll be better this year, now that we're home.

Whether it be Christmas, or Yule, I bet it'll be awesome!

And, We've decided to go Christmas caroling this year.
But we're not just going to sing the regular Christmas songs...
We'll be singing Zombie Christmas Carols too!
XD
This is going to be awesome.

What are you going to do this holiday season?

Love

Day 5

Hi,

I don't feel well. I haven't all week. But now, It's worse.
I really hope I feel Better soon.

I helped clean up Halloween today.
Because I helped mom, and I'm going to help her clean her closet, she's going to gelp me get my Zune HD next Friday.

Anyway, I'm going to go lay down.

Day foooouuuur. (all dramaticy)

Yola peoples!

Guess what? It's FRIDAY, that's what!

And the One acts are today.
At 7.
But I have to be there at 6:30.
So I have to leave in 25 minutes.

This is going to be a short post, but I'll still talk about stuff. And answer yesterdays prompt.

It says:
Would you rather be wealthy and ugly, wise and sickly, or beautiful and stupid?

Easy.
Wise and Sickly.
It might suck to be sick all the time, but I would be able to continue to live my life. It says nothing about HOW sick, mind you. I just might have allergies. Though that sucks too... Oh well.

My friend posted the Assumption song of facebook today. It's kinda funny/strange. You should listen to it, and tell me whet you think. XD

Here it is:
The Assumption song!

Weird right? It's an old english folk song or something like that...

Anyways. Got to go!

Day 3, and going strong!

Hiyas!

I'm not going to post very much tonight.

Mom's not feeling well, and is kinda grumpy, so...
I hope she feels better soon. I hope all of us feel better soon.

Had sushi for diner tonight!
IT WAS YUMMY!

I like Spicy tuna, and Eel. Those are my Favorites. ♥

Do you like sushi? What's your favorite kind? If you don't like sushi, why not?! It's good. :D

HEY! Tomorrow's Friday. That's awesome. It's also the one acts at my school.
I'm excited to see them. XD
I've always loved plays and musicals. Especially live!
Hopefully, I'll get to be in one!

Have you seen the Squishables?
They're sooo cute!
I want one sooo bad....
This one is my favorite right now:

And the Cthulhu:

Kay, got to go.
Bye!

Day 2!

Hello!

Sorry about the earlier posts, I think I might have been abducted by aliens. O.O

Anyways, i signed un to the NaBloPoMo website, and they have a bunch of prompts to help you out with your posts. Today's was:

Describe the plot of the next book you want to read, even if the book doesn't exist yet.

So. Being the bookworm that I am, this poses a problem. Why genre of book?!
Hmm...
Maybe.... Nah....
ARGH!!!!

Alright, so if I HAD TO CHOOSE, I'd probably go with fiction. Not Mystery, or science fiction, those have their merits. Fantasy is what I read most of the time anyways, so...

But for the plot!?

Well, I have a good friend who is a wonderful writer and has come up with many, many good plots. Some which include: A princess who is kidnapped by a female pirate, a girl who falls in love with an alien and joins their world, and a girl who falls in love with her guardian angel. All very good, compelling stories! I wish she would finish them!

I have another good friend who also writes, and she came up with many good books (fully written, too) and her plots include a theif who joins a small band of con artists/thieves, and their adventures. She also has one about a girl who finds out she has been raised in the human world, but is actually one of the cat/human hybrids.

NOTE: These are not my stories, and they are copyrighted. if you steal them (which I doubt you will, but still) I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN, STEAL THEM BACK, AND DUCT TAPE YOU TO A WALL. Kay? ♥

All of these stories, fully written, half plotted, or just word doodled down on paper are wonderful. I would LOVE to see these in print one day, grazing the hands of millions. If you have and stories that you are working on, thought about, or even just threw down on paper, I'd LOVE to read them! Please, send your stories to savvysavant@gmail.com, and I'll read them as soon as possible!

As for real, honest to god books that are on my bookshelf, these are some of them:
  • The Maximum Ride series by James Patterson (♥♥♥SQUEE!!♥♥♥) (read them all)
  • The Dark Powers Trilogy by Kelly Armstrong (read all but last book)
  • Farest by Levine (single book)
  • Wicked Lovely by Marr (Only read first one so far)
  • The house of Night Series, and The Divine by (mistake) series by P.C. Cast (All but newest book)
  • Nightwaklker by Jocelynn Drake (only first, own second but haven't read yet)
  • Nobody's Princess by Friesner (Only first)
  • Night World Series by L.J. Smith (All three, 4th not published yet ): )
  • The Mysterious Benedict Society Series by Stewart (all but newest)
  • The Percy Jackson Series by Riordan (Loved the movie, read all but the last book)
  • Old Magic by (I can't remember!) (Only one book)
  • The Dead is Trilogy By Perez
  • The Looking Glass wars Series By (I can't remember) (only read first)
  • Probably some others I've forgotten at the moment, but will remember at 3 in the morning...
And there's still more I've read. I have to have read at least a few thousand books by now.

♥♥
♥♥♥
I
LOVE
TO
READ!
♥♥♥

Plain and simple.

Talk to you tomorrow!

NaBloPoMo

Hello everyone.

So, since I've leaned away from blogging recently, I have decided to participate in National Blog Posting Month.

I accept the fact that participating in this may nearly kill me.

If you don't know anything about it, here's the low down (Abbreviated style)
  • You HAVE to post a blog EVERY DAY of November. That's 30 posts people. 30.
  • You can't skimp out on a post. It has to be an actual post, not a wimpy picture of a pansy and an apology as to why you can't write today.

That's about it. And by the way, that's the Sav version of those rules, so.... BEWARE!

Now, I know that I missed yesterday (THE SHAME!), but that's not my fault. I skipped school, and vegged all day. Besides, you won't belive how hard it is to get on a computer in this house.

BUT!
I
WILL
PARTICIPATE
IN
NABLOPOMO!

Even if it kills me.
Because from what I've heard, I don't stand a chance.

O.O

Adventures!

So, Hi.

What's up?
Me? I'm good I guess. Nothing particularly awesome to post...
I failed a math test, and that really sucks. (I got a 57%)
I"ll probably retake it, but I reeeeally don't want to. :/
Doing grate in all of my other classes though.
Didn't make it into the one acts, but I'm going to try out for Sweeney Todd and Winterfest.
Winterfest is in November, and it's a talent show.
Sweeney Todd is the Musical we're doing in the spring.
I really, really, really hope I get a part.
Preferably Joanna or Ms. Lovett.
I hope to get a singing part. ♪♫
The first quarter ends this month! XD
Panda and I have been planning mom's birthday. It's going to be AWESOME.

There's this creepy guy in my theater class who I'm pretty sure like me.
He's from Canada.
That's cool. And I was nice to him for a while.
But then I started to think... that he likes me. :/
He's not spectacular.
He's actually really creepy.
In all of the skits he's been in, he's kill one or multiple people or been a stoner.
I also found out he's a Junior.
I don't have a problem with this normally, but it amps up his creepy-ness.
He wsits in the same seat everyday, adn he doesn't talk to anyone.
But when I walk in, he waits for me to sit, and then he belies for me.
The other day, he randomly got really close to me while I was getting ready to go, and asked me the color of my eyes.
And he got the color wrong.
I've told Panda and my mom, and Jay, but they just joke about it.
He's SO CREEPY.
And I'm sure to get grief about this, but I don't really care.
He also cuddles chairs and sleeps in class.
BLEH.
I hope someday I find someone no creepy to like and who likes me.
But I know for a fact, my soul mate isn't Mr. Creepy in Theater.
*Shivers*

But other than him, I really LOVELOVELOVE theater! ♥♥♥
It'll be sad next sememster when I don't have it anymore.
But I'll deal.
I'll have french, and seminar (study hall) with a whole bunch of friends.
It's going to be AWESOME.
And, if I'm lucky, I'll be in the musical.
So I'll still be involved.
:D
Going to mow the lawn this Friday.
Our new shiny red lawn mower is itching to be used.

One of the librarians knows me by name now.
:)
She's nice.
I hope I remember to get the user name info tomorrow...
And that I pass the Math Quiz and the Science test.
I think I'll be fine.
^-^

I want my ipod...
Still quite far away though. :/
I spent $20 at PPD.
And I lost the opportunity to earn $20 when I didn't mow the lawn.
My foot was hurt.

Pleh.
Going to join a gym!
It's going to be GREAT!
I'M SO EXCITED!
XD
It has a HUGE mirrored room that we can use for practice.
And lots of awesome stuff, like a peppermint/eucalyptus steam room and pool.
And I'm old enough to finally use the equipment!
This is so exciting!

Wish me luck on all of my adventures.
I'll try to post again soon, but I often forget....
:)
Kay, Luv you
BuhBye.

Catching Up (AGAIN?!?!)

Hiyas~

Sorry I haven't posted, in like AGES, and you're all old and dusty now because all you have to look forward to is my posts, but seriously. Okay, I'm done being Narcissistic now. ;)

So, last Wednesday I started high school. *Cue streamers and confetti* Exciting, right? Yeah. It was kinda sorta terrifying that first two days. But it's better now. I have Gym :(, Sci :), 1st Lunch, Algebra 1 :/, and Theater Arts 1 XD. So yeah. And lunch SUCKED, until I met a Foreign Exchange student from France. She's awesome. And I have a girl from Gym in first lunch too(Amb). I met a whole bunch of awesome people, but none of them had 1st lunch until I found out Amb did.

And I ♥♥♥LOVELOVELOVELOVE♥♥♥ Theater! It's great. But I'm a little paranoid because I'm pretty sure this guy from Canada like me. :/ He's nice, but...

So yeah. So far, I've killed a guy with a banana, and pushed an evil witch into an oven. And now, the guy I killed with the banana in class ( I have him in sci, too) keeps shouting Banana at me. I think he said he was going to start calling me Banana. I don't know why. Oh well. :)

Might be doing a Burn for Labor day! XD And pagan pride day is coming up the weekend of the 18th!!! And Dadinator's birthday party is on the 10th. I get to baby sit Ben~ ♥

Joined Drama club. :D Might go to New York, but I need to get the monies. :/ Lotsa fund-raising. I'll post the details later, so you can help. ;P
So Drama Club is going to see 'To Kill A Mockingbird' at Burning coal theater. I'm excited!
I love plays~

Found an AWESOME new band, called NeverShoutNever. Go check 'em out♥

So, what's new with you all?

Love,
Me♥

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Yeah, yeah. Don't Nag.

Okay, I know. I'm waaaaaay late again, but at least it's not November yet. And trust me, I'm SO participating in the blog every day thing. :D You can start looking forward to it now.

So... I have to catch you up on everything, huh? Well, here goes.

My cat Dugan (Tuxedo, really cute, 10 years old) had to be taken to the Vet yesterday because he wasn't moving 2/3 of his tail. Took him in, blah blah blah, turns out he just had impacted anal glands (which is rare for cats) and it was painful to move his tail. He's fine now, but Mom has to stuff an antibiotic down his throat twice a day. She tried covering it in yogurt (it's ridiculous how much that cat loves yogurt), but he can smell the medicine, and wan NOTHING to do with it. :/

Other than that, I can't really think of much. Part of why I didn't post for so long was because I went to New Jersey for a little over 2 weeks. The rest of my family came down a few days later. I think I was down there for too long. It was kinda boring, and we left early. It sucks to be on the boardwalk and not have money to spend on the games or vendors. Next time we go, Mom's going to make sure we can have fun at the boardwalk. :D

Mom's going to finally register us for school tomorrow! I'm excited to go back to school, and get some new clothes and shoes, and a new backpack and school supplies. For some weird reason, I've always loved pens that wrote well. I don't know why... but they're awesome! :D

I still can't decide what classes I want to take though. I'm hoping to learn more about them tomorrow. I know I either want to take French or German as my language, but I'm having the hardest time deciding. And it's between Visual Arts 1, Theater Arts 1, and Vocal Arts 1 for my Arts elective. I can't decide... I always take visual arts... And Theater arts sounds fun, but I don't have any experience with it. (Except for one class in 7th grade which I LOVED) and Vocal arts could be fun too. I like to sing, but I haven't been in chorus since 5th grade. :/ Help? What's your opinion?

I really hope I choose correctly!

Also, Bitti-bopper's birthday is coming up, August 10th. Her party is going to be boardwalk themed, and it's going to be fun~ :D

Hmm.... i can't really think of anything else right now... I FINALLY got a move with my Poi!

But i have to go, I'm being yelled at. :/

Okay I luv ya buhbye!

Behind again... =P

Sorry! I know I said I would post on the 20th, but I was BUSY.

So anyways... Midsummer is the celebration of the Summer solstice. It is also known as the longest day of the year. It is said to be one of the few times a year when the veils between the realms is thinnest. It is said this is the time when the fey come out and play. :D

So there 'ya go.


On to another subject...

This week was Circle school at the Loxley, and I taught(?) the second class. I had to teach a whole bunch of little kids about Air. It took me forevvveeeerrrr to figure out what I was going to do for the class, and then came the fateful day: Tuesday. Turns out, the didn't like either of my stories, but quite enjoyed my snack and pinwheel activity. And it was HOT all week. Today is the last day, and it's my mom's turn. She's teaching them about the moon. Hope all goes well for her tonight!

Okay now time for a secret! It's been slowly killing me that I can't talk about this on Facebook...

This weekend on Sunday, my grandparents (on Daddy's side) are coming to visit us. Then when they go back up on Wednesday, I'm going with them. ^_^ I'm going to spend 19 days in New Jersey, and possibly some in Vermont. I get to go to the Board walk, and the beach, the Mini-beach by their house.! I AM SO EXCITED. I also get to see one of my favorite cousins, who's two years older than me. She's awesome, and I don't get to see her too often, so this make it even better! XD

SO EXCITED!

Kay, I'll keep you updated if I can...

Luv ya!

Ketchup isn't as delicuous when not in a bottle...

Hi!

I got on to post today, but then got caught up in other things, and then decided to post after all when I found out that someone I don't know likes my blog! ^_^ This has made me extremely happy! And that was a runon sentence, but oh well...

Anywho, I think I'm going to demit to this assembly. I really like it, all the girls are super nice, and the adults in charge seem to care about the members, and not just the member count. I'm going to go to Grand the last week of June before I decide and submit the papers though. I'm looking foreward to wearing formal dresses again though. =D

Also, this weekend (the 19th) is Midsummer! I will be posting more about Midsummer, and our celebrations on the 20th. I made some REALLY AWESOME fairy wings for it, and am still working on my coustume, but I think it'll look good. I have also been voted 'Wing Queen', for some reason. Maybe because I've made three sets of wings so far, and each one has turned out really nice? i don;t know, but its a handy skill to have aquired!

I have also been catching up on my Circus skills. I'm getting pretty good at poi, but I still haven't mastered putting them all together as smothly as Panda. And I know that I'll get there, but I still can't help being impatient... = l

The Mominator is going to college! She had her COMPASS tests today, and she scored really well: 99 in reading, 92 in writing, and 32 in math. She expected to do badly in Math, but the instructor said she doesn't have to taka a remedial Math course. So YAY! She's really looking foreward to it~

So good for her! ^_^

Hmm... What else?

I know! Since I'm watching Invader Zim, it's time for a quote!

Zim: Computer, give me all the information you have on the FBI.
Computer: The FBI is a government law enforcement agency.
Zim: Continue.
Computer: Insufficient data.
Zim: "Insufficient data"? Can't you just make an educated guess?
Computer: O... kay... Um, founded in 1492 by, uh... demons, the FBI is a crack law enforcement agency designed to... uh, I dunno, fight... aliens?
Zim: I KNEW IT!

Or...

Dib: Ms. Bitters, I think a pencil is lodged in my brain. Can I go to the nurse?
Ms. Bitters: How far in your brain?

Gir: Yeees?
Zim: What have you done to the telescope?
Gir: Nothin'...
Zim: You haven't touched it? Something is broken and it's not your fault?
Gir: I know, I'm scared too!

Okay, I'm done now.

Okay I love you buh-bye!

One can only hope...

Hillo!

How are you? Me? Oh, I'm good, I suppose.
I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while. I meant to, really. But, I was too lazy, I guess. But! I'm posting now, so it does not really matter. :D

So, to the point.

Back in AZ, I used to be in Rainbow. I quit though, because the entire adult hierarchy was really screwed up. The adults didn't trust us to do anything for ourselves.

But now, in a different state, I'm going to try it again. I really enjoyed being Drill Leader, and dressing up, and memorizing the ritual. So, I'm going to go to meeting tonight, and HOPE TO EVERY DEITY I KNOW that its different out here.

Hey, at least I get to wear my favorite short dress. ^-^

Luvluv,

Like the kid nobody wants on their team in Gym

I'm feeling left out.

Yesterday was my school graduation. And I wasn't there. This SUCKS. I'm looking at all the pictures, and commenting on how nice my friends look... and it's all well and good, but it kinda hurts. Especially because I think they got to ride in limos. T.T

Now, I'm not a particularly girly girl. I'm like melted Neapolitan ice cream: a little of both, without one overpowering flavor. Well, except for the weird flavor. That one's pretty strong...

But I like to dress up. I enjoy doing my make-up and hair, and putting on a nice dress that I have no other occasion to wear it to.

On the other hand, my very tomboy friend was forced into so-sparkly-it's-kinda-ugly dress, heels and make-up, all against her will.

I would've gladly traded places with her. Well, maybe with a different outfit though...

This sucks sooo much. I mean, my 5th grade graduation was nothing spiffy, but I was really kinda looking forward to my 8th grade graduation. I mean, it signifys the end of grade school, and the beginning of finding out who we really are as our own people.

And I know that there was nothing we can do about it. I know that we had to leave before the graduation because the house was empty and we just couldn't afford it. I know all this, but I can't help but feel left out.

Especially looking at all of the graduation pictures.

I mean, they have to MAIL my certificates to me. Like, POST OFFICE mail.

Have I mentioned lately that this SUCKS? Because let me tell you, it totally does.

~Sav

Thinking. It just happens sometimes.

Okay. I've been thinking about posting these things since before I had an actual blog to post them on. But now that I'm starting to write about them, all the words escape my nimble fingers as I try to grasp the thoughts that have floated around me for quite some time and twist and bend them into a piece of art to withstand the ages. Poetic, right?

I have always been told by my mom, that I am an old soul. And for those of you who have no idea what this could possibly mean, I'm here to explain it to you.

It basically means that my soul, the little wisp of color and life that pours my being into everything I touch, has lived more lives than I could ever remember. Have you ever heard of reincarnation? The theory of having more than one life. Your soul is implanted in your body as an embryo, to grow and learn as your life progresses. My mom believes that in each life, you're sent to learn something different, and that if you don't learn your lesson, in the next life you must try again. Being an old soul just means your soul has already lived many lives, and is almost done learning it's lessons.

And because your soul is so knowledgeable, and wise, the current you is calmer, and smarter, and takes to life with a practiced ease. But each soul is different, so the outcomes can vary.

I believe that I am an old soul, and that maybe, just maybe that may have something to do with my morals. Sometimes, I just teach myself things. Like to not call people after 8 pm, unless it's an emergency, or you're VERY close to them. (Once, I shocked my mom because I told her I would call a friend in the morning, so as to not break this courtesy. She was shocked that I had discovered this manner on my own at a young age.) Or maybe it's a result of the stories my friends and family have told me. My mom lead a very...interesting life so far, and has told me all of her stories, and has let me learn from her misjudgments, so that I don't make the same. And yet some of my morals have come from things that could happen, and things I hope that will never happen.

I don't know. Maybe I'm just some random girl with an imaginative mind who has come to these conclusions simply by luck. Either way, I refuse to doubt the ethics I have come to trap in my mind.

But, I' m rambling now, so on with the post, I suppose.

As I said before, I have come to a set of morals and promises to myself. I will only share a few, but I hope that whoever reads this will find them logical and of good reasoning.

I have promised myself that I will wait for my soul mate. Whoever he may be. And if I can't find him in this lifetime, than I am completely happy to become 'the Batty old cat lady who makes good cake'. Something like this, right?:

*****~~~~~*****
Me: "Oh come in! It's so nice to have visitors nowadays..."
New Family: "Oh, Okay..."
Large Lion pokes his head out from the foliage.
New Family: "Um... What's that?"
Me: "Oh! This is Mr. Pooky. He's such a good little kitty too. Aren't you Mr. Pooky?"
New Family: Laughs nervously
Me: "I'll just go get those cookies I baked..." Walks off into the Thick foliage with a parrot on her shoulder, 3 chickens, a fat cat, a litter of kittens, and a llama following her.
Mr. Pooky growls.
*****~~~~~*****

:D
Or maybe:

*****~~~~~*****
Neighbor: "Do you remember the Watkins' Kid?"
Me: "Oh, the brat who kept egging my house?"
Neighbor: "Yeah, do you remember what happened to him?"
Me: "Hmm... Didn't he get eaten?, ah, Run away?"
Neighbor: "Yeah, I thought so."
Mr. Pooky Licks his lips.
*****~~~~~*****

Don't mess with the crazy old cat lady, man. Bad things happen, baaaad things. XD

Another of my promises was mentioned in a diffrent post of mine. Disappointment Stings was it's title, I believe...

Hey, good news! My Mom just hollered over from the other room, that Our friend just had her baby girl at 1:59 today. Welcome Lilian! <3

Okay,
Lotsa love!

Home again, home again, Jigity Jig! :)

Yola Everyone!

Sorry it's been a while since I last posted, we've been pretty busy.

When we first got here, we were welcomed warmly. Everyone is VERY happy to have us back. All our neighbors, and our friends. It so wonderful to be home!
They helped us unload the truck, and we're now trying to settle in. Panda, and her new (ADORABLE) baby boy Benjamin have been over here almost every day. She's helping me catch up on my hooping and Poi skills. So, YAY! Ben is really adorable, and he's only a month and a half. I love baby's. :D She helped us move stuff around, too, so that's good. Today we went over and saw her new town house, it's really nice! She also gave me a whole bunch of Manga to read, so I'm happy. We're also going to borrow Anime once our DVD player is set up.

Also, a big thanks to Mag for coming over and helping us settle in some on Monday!

When the cable guy came, I got a DVR for my room, so I'm super happy. XD I can finally record as much stuff as I want without Dadinator grumping at me. I also get some On Demand channels, so that's AWESOME!

Oh, quick note, Dadinator tried to quit smoking, and was so grumpy, he just went out and bought a pack. That didn't last very long. But I really hate it when the go through that RAGH! phase. :l

SUPER GOOD NEWS ALERT! I'm going to one of the biggest Anime conventions in the WORLD! WOOT! I've wanted to go to Animazement for a while now, and almost went before we moved, but never made it. This year, I finally get to go! XD I'm going on Saturday, so this should be fun. I'M SO EXCITED! I designed my own Lolita costume, and I'm psyched up to make it. I'll post pics when it's done, so don't fret. I also hope I'll get to make the uniform from Love Monster, and wear elf ears, but I don't know if I'm going to do that yet. >.<


Hm... It's really weird. I always get motivated to do stuff, i.e. post, clean, organize..., at night. Maybe it just means I'm a night owl, in the literal sence of the word. Oh well, it just makes my life more interesting. And explains why I don't like bright light. I'd take an overcast gloomy week over a bright sunny day any time. Not that sun is bad, it's great! But only in small doses... O.o

I climbed a tree today! My first real climb in a looong time. It was fun! It was a pine tree, too, so that made it even more interesting. I've never climbed one of those before today, so it was a new challenge. I got as high as I could before I ran out of strong limbs. :D The funny part is that I'm clumsy on the ground, but fine in trees. :) Oh well, that just gives me a reason to climb them more!

Quick note, as she just reminded me. Yesterday was Tink's birthday! Happy 8th Birthday Kitteh! I loveh youes! =^ - ^=


Kay, it's late, and I'm thirsty, so...
Smoochies!

Hickory, North Carolina!

WoOt!
We only have a few hours left to drive tomorrow, and then all of our friends will be there to help us unload the truck, and then the May Fire Festival on Sunday! FunFunFun!

The right back tire on the U-Haul almost went KABLOOY today, so we had to stop at a Jack-in-the-Box, and wait for the repair guys to fix it... Chocolate Shakes!

The rest of the trip was uneventful. When we first hit the road, we saw a truck trailing a, get this!, TANK. Like a real, honest to goddess, Military TANK. My camera is REALLY slow, and has been costing me LOTS of really cool pictures. I want one that I can just continually snap, and not miss anything. That'd be AWESOME!

We didn't see much flood damage, just debris on the side of the road, and all of the flooded out residents. The Econo Lodge we stayed in last night SUCKED. If you ever have the opportunity to stay in one, turn it down. PROFUSELY. You can thank me later. :)

When we passed the North Carolina boarder, Mom started crying. It startled me. Especially when she told me why. She says that it just now hit her that we're going home. It was kinda shocking seeing as that's all we've been doing for the past 3 days... Oh well, to each their own shock, I suppose.

Dougan just freaked mom out by disappearing behind the bed. Same thing happened with another one of our cats when we first did this. Scared her to death. So now, she has Key locators on them. The cats now beep. :D

The La Quinta we're in right now is Bliss compared to the Roach Motel we were in last night. it's only been open 8 months! Every thing is BRAND SPANKING NEW. XD Extreme yay!

It's really humid here, and it's kinda odd, but we're readjusting fast. It even rained for a few minutes today! And last night, and today, we've been seeing Lightning bugs!

We're sooooo happy!

Okay, it's 12:14 here, and I'm tiiiireeeed!

Sleep well, and thank Hermes!

Jackson, Tennessee

Hi.

Oklahoma was pretty. :D

And we passed by Henrietta! I took lots of pictures.

Now we're in some horrible Hotel in Jackson, Tennessee. Bleh.

But we had to stop here, because of the flooding. Turns out everything from Memphis to Nashville was effected. The people here are really nice, and have all banded together to help with the problems. Tonight we saw a police man help a Dyslexic man into a hotel room because he left Mississippi without his wife's knowing. So, he's being cared for until she can come down in the morning.

To me, that's not a act of kindness, it's what all people should automatically do.

We'll probably get halfway through North Carolina tomorrow, and stay in a hotel until we can get to our house.

Saw lots of funny signs today, Such as:
  • Toadsuck Park
  • Lotsawata Road, rright next to the river
  • Fort Pillow
:D We had fun with that!

I'd post more, but I'm tired, and want to get to bed.

Good Night, ;)

Shawnee, OKlaaahooomaaa....

Turns out its right next to Kickapoo Indian Nation. Yes, that's right. KICK-A-POO.

(If you're not at least snickering right now, just wait, you humorless lump.)

After we saw the first sign (Kickapoo Casino), Mominator and I started debating about who we were supposed to be kicking poo at. And if we were supposed to kick Pooh Bear (which is just Cruel, and, we don't want Tigger sicked on us.), a poodle (which is just as mean), or real poo. Which is just discusting.

Then we saw it: Kickapoo, Indian Nation.


After we stopped laughing hysterically, we began to wonder, are we kicking petrified indian Poo statues? An Indian covered in Poo? Or is it just poo at an Indian?

What do you think?

Mom is stilly really stressed, but today was pretty calm. We left Tink (the easily upset one) in her carrier, and everyone else just found a place to hunker down, or wandered. The only cat problems we had was when Dougan fell on her accidentally, and when Missy purpously sat on her. Twice. Luckily we arrived at the hotel then, so I didn't have to hold onto her long. We're just shy of halfway through the trip!

I wish we could pass through Henrietta, just so I can see where Stevie Rae* was born!

The rest of the trip wasn't nearly as funny, but Oklahoma is really pretty. As soon as we unpack the SD card reader, I promise to dedicate an entire post just to pictures and Videos I'm taking. Really. :)

Oh! I've been reading a series my Mom dug up for me before we left. It's kinda old, but really good. I just finished the first book today, and I highly recomend them. It's Spider Robinson's 'Callahan's Crosstime Saloon'. Look for them. You can thank me later.

'Kay, It's late, and I'm off to bed. I'm already dead on my feet.
Talk to you tomorrow!

Albaquirky, NM

Alrighty.

We just spent from Noon this morning until 10pm tonight in the car. It was okay, I usually like road trips. But Mom was worrying over EVERYTHING, and the cats were really nervous. We also ran into a pack (Hoard?Group?Flock?) of bee's and now have bee guts all over the cars. That was earlier, in Flagstaff. I'm taking pictures, but I can't upload them until I find the thingy that attaches the camera to the computer. But I will as soon as I can. :) Promise.

Anyways, I need to vent. Just a little.

I have spent the last two nights on the floor, with little to cover me, or separate me from the floor. It was less than comfy. But I delt. I also helped load the truck, and pack. And then we drove all day today. So I'm fine in the car, but then I get grumpy. And my cat doesn't want to come out of the car. And mom is worrying. A LOT. So, we get to the hotel, and the cat's being difficult, and I'm stuffing cats into the carriers, and packing up stray stuff... ect, ect. So I'm fretting about the cat as Dad trys shoving her out. They send The Biti and I up to the room. I walk in and am SO excited to FINALLY sleep on an actual bed again. And I round the corner, to see ONE bed, and a Hide-away. Okay, at least I'm not sleeping on the floor, right? So, i pull it sou, and it turns out it's a TWIN. That I have to share with a bed hog. My resolve broke. And it wasn't helping that I'm just trying to help my parents, and they are yelling at me. I know I'm supposed to Listen. I am listening. I'm also shooting off good ideas, and it's you who's not even bothering to listen to what I have to say. Or maybe even cast a spare thought my way. Because I understand why your stressed out, and why you don't want my ideas. but my ideas are good, and would it kill you to think about how stressed out I am or why I'm trying to help? I'm thinking about the cats, and the dog, and Biti, and me, and you guys.

When everyone else is freaking out, i'm fine. i'm the one who's got a sound head on my shoulders while everyone is panicing. And I have good ideas, but no one bothers to listen.

And I don't cry. It's not that I don't, its just that I don't Like crying. It kinda sucks. Everyone trying to console you, and treating you like a child. I HATE THAT. So, I've learned to cry less.

That's why it really freaked me out when I acctually cryed tonight. It was just all too much. Everyone yelling at me when I wanted to go het ice. I really just wanted to get away from the room with the tiny bed, and my family. I just wanted a casual moment alone to calm myself down. And I got yelled at. So I ended up crying, and being consoled.

I hate that.

Here's hoping tonight is restful, and tomorrow is better than today.

May Hermes bless our journey.

Just staying out of the way!

Hello.

I come to you from a chair, in the middle of my slowly emptying living room. Yes, that's right. Today id the Big Day! Moving day. We've been packing non-stop all week to prepare for this, and just like all the times before, we are totally unprepared. And let me tell you, it SUCKS. Even my nose is complaining! It has made sure to let me know just how it feels. Everyone is really excited though. It's just the packing and loading that we don't like. We have no problem with unloading or unpacking. So, we just have to tough it out for now.

We are scheduled to leave tomorrow, but we may end up leaving later. It all depends on how fast we can pack the truck up. Mominator has decided that she isn't going to rush, and that we will take as much time as we need to pack up. I don't mind, but I am really anxious to leave.

My last day of school was Wednesday. At the time, I had no idea that it would be my last day. But I had fun. The entire 8th grade went rock climbing. Apparently I was pretty good, I scaled two walls to the very top, and the Staff dude asked me if I had ever done any outdoor climbing because I "have some techniques of professional outdoor climbers.' :D That was really cool. But being up so high can be kinda creepy. I was okay, as long as I didn't look down for too long. Others, though, couldn't climb and had to belay because they were so scared. I really hope to do it again once we're home.

I am hoping that once we are on the road, I will be able to take pictures as we travel, and post each night. This would keep everyone up-to-date, and help me keep a chronicle on everything that happens. It's not every day you travel cross-country.

So, wish us luck! I'm pretty sure we're going to need it!

Tah-tah for now,
~Sav

Disappointment Stings

Hello,

This is a rather dreary post.

It's about cigarettes.

For many years my Mother, and Father had smoked. They stopped for a while, then when my mom's cat Sadie died, they started again. It took many years for my mother to be able to quit again. She read a book on how to quit Cold-turkey, and listened to hidden messages on CD's. Finally, she though she was ready. On one day in November, she quit. My dad, at the time, wasn't read to quit, just yet. And personally, I doubt the Bitibopper and I would have survived if they both quit at the same time. When someone quits smoking, they suffer from Nicotine withdrawal. It sucks. They become very cross, and easily irritated. And it lasts two weeks. After that it went back to normal.

When my Mom quit, my life was bettered. I was no longer around second-hand smoke, or cigarettes in general unless my Dad happened to drive me somewhere. I rarely inhale that unpleasant stench anymore. And soon after ( about a month ) my Dad quit smoking too. After the two weeks of hiding from him, I was supremely proud. It had always worried me, that habit of theirs. And I always just stood around with my silent disapproval. I knew that whatever I said would only irritate them, and that they had to quit on their own. I always became quite irritable when we had to sit through the seminars about smoking and it's dangers. I knew them quite well, and it was scary to think about any of those horrible things happening to my parents. So, I hated being reminded of the risks they were taking.
But when they both quit smoking, and I didn't have to fear anymore, I was so happy. It had taken so long, but it had finally happened. If you have ever had someone around you who smokes, I believe you can relate to the freeing sensation you get when they finally quit. This all occurred only a few years ago, too.

And my mother is still cigarette free! I am very proud of her, even if I have not expressed this before. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for my Father. We were at the pool with some neighbors who smoked, and he bummed a cigarette from them. 'Cheating' He said. And my mom asked him if it made him feel any better. He replied that no, it didn't, and he promised it was only going to happen this once. At that moment, I didn't believe him. The wonderful feeling I hadn't seemed to notice before was suddenly being eaten away. It was as if my disappointment was gnawing on it, savoring it like some rare delicacy.

A week or two ago, he came back from the store, and joked around before saying that he had bought a pack of cigarettes, and that, as my mother had asked him before, he might need to cheat a little, just to stay sane. She looked at him disapprovingly, but agreed. I avoided looking at him, for the small monster that was savoring my pride seemed to have taken a particularly large bite. It felt as if I had grown something rare and wonderful inside me, and he was killing it ever-so-slowly with pesticides and clippers.

Nothing new has happened since that night. He has walked in once, or twice with the familiar stench of cigarettes n him, and I finally realize what my mother had meant when I asked her why she began smoking in the first place. She had said that the smell was comforting, because her parents had smoked around hr as a child. She had grown up with that smell, so it was comforting. Although she doesn't have the same stand point now. Her body just can't handle it, and she detests the smell. I know know that although the scent is familiar to me, I will never find it down-right pleasant.

There is something I want to do. Here, on my blog, in front of my astonishing 3 readers. I am going to solidify a promise I had made to myself for as long as I can remember. It is burned into my heart, and I will never break it, along with any others that accumulate over the years. But I have never said it out loud, and wish to do so here. So, without further ado, here goes:

I, Savvy Savant, do here by swear to never, for as long as I shall live, EVER smoke a cigarette. I refuse to put my children through worrying about me as I have my parents, and I doubt I could live with myself afterwords even if I dared. I do believe myself to be a strong, smart young woman, and if I am so, then I will be able to stand up to anything that dares to challenge my promise.

I hope that anyone who happens to stumble on my blog will have the courage to do the same, no matter their age. Even if you have, or do smoke, vow to stop, and NEVER touch another as long as you shall live. But make sure you tell some one. You never know who might be worrying about you.

Love, and Many Long Lives,
Sav~

Apologies and Explinations

Yola. >.<
I am here to apologize, and explain.

I haven't posted in a while due to strep throat, and friends.

Last week, I missed Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. On Tues. I went to the doctor, and she prescribed me 20 Penicillin, twice a day for ten days. She told me not to go to school Wed., because I was still contagious. So, School on Thursday right? Nope. Got a horribly itchy rash-type thing. The Mominator though it was an allergic reaction to the penicillin, because Daddyborg has a deadly allergy to the stuff. So, the next day, I'm back where I started, and was diagnosed with "Oh, that's just scarlet fever. No need to worry, it's a side effect of strep." Great! Mom had her change my prescription anyways. So, I'm now feeling much better, and mom seems to have caught it from me, and started taking the penicillin, now that I wasn't taking it.

Now you know why I wasn't at school. What you need to know is what I missed.

Now, since I'm Anonymous, I can't use their real names. (Sorry girls, this isn't going to be your 15 minutes of fame.) So in this little anecdote we have: Ali, Ley, Pearl, and Val.
Ali and Ley are in my close group of friends. This also includes Momo, but she doesn't appear in this. Val is a good friend of Ley, but we're not very close. And none of us really liked Pearl... But she latched onto Val and Ley like a leech. Now, I'm not rambling, it's important that you know this.

So, a few weeks ago, another girl heard a rumor that Val was, I belive the term used was 'talking crap about her'. This was untrue. I may not be very close to her, but I know enough about her to vow that she would never do something like that, unless they had done something to seriously offend her. So, this girl, with a few of her friends came and found her in between classes and punched her. Val was suspended for a few days, while the other girl got a longer punishment. (there was reason, she had hit her back in defense.) For a few days after my little group was mostly on Val's side. We all argued that she was wrongly accused, and shouldn't have been punished. Pearl, however was on the other girls side. We now believe this was because she has more friends than our little group contains. Ley felt strongly about this, being very close to Val, and was quite unhappy with Pearl. This continued for a few weeks, until things started to get uncomfortable.

Week before last, Pearl started spreading rumors about Ley, saying that she [Pearl] could take her in a fight. This got her into a lot of trouble. Ley almost went and punched her Monday at recess. I was able to convince her out of it, but was absent due to the above reasons the next day. That afternoon I get a series of text messages from Ali telling me very little. I later got the whole story. Turns out, Pearl slapped Ley before school, and Ley retaliated by pulling her hair. Ley didn't get in any trouble because she was able to talk to the front office. Note: I didn't know any of this until Friday, so I was worried sick.

Especially because she has family problems. The next day I learn that she ran away, and was forced to fear the worst. I had no way of contacting her because she had her phone, and all connections to the outside world, taken away when she got an F in Science. She was with Val for a period of time, but I never got to talk to her, even though it was being debated if she could stay with me. When I finally got the whole story from Ley on Friday, she says she went home with Val because she was tired of her parents. They grounded her until the end of the school year, extending her flunking punishment. She then went through a series of people to try and stay with her aunt, who ended up being in some far-off Arizona city. Eventually, that same night, she ended up back home again.

Now after resolving all of this, and squeezing as many people as I could for details, I came to wonder: How do I fit in with all this? I am often called the 'mom' type person. The one who takes care of everyone else. I make sure none of the jokes go to far, provide solid advice when necessary, pester friends until they tell me the problem and I can help... Things of that nature. And, I've noticed that I'm the only one who does this. I am the ring leader. I had a partner in crime, but she moved to a different school. I would have no problem in continuing this role, but I leave for Raleigh in 19 days. And I only have 13 left in school. So, my mind began working furiously. Do they really need me? If so, what will they do without me? I keep every one sane. What happens when I'm gone? Will they kill each other? I suppose it will go back to as it was before I met them. Jen will lead them just as she did before I showed up, and just as we did together. But where does this leave Ley? She is only friends with them because I dragged her into my group. She became fast friends with Jen, as everyone does, and soon with Ali, too. But who's going to help her? She's in a catch 22 with her family situation, an I am who she relies on. Well, Val and I. But I keep coming back to the same question: Where does this leave me?

I know they will miss me. Just as I will miss them. I guess I just hope everything will be okay...

And, in the meantime I'll just go back to leading my friends in Raleigh. :)
I'm sure they could use a little more trouble in their lives.

Bear Hugs & Smoochies ~♥

Can we have our holiday back?

Happy Easter, everyone!

I'm sure that many of you did not know, that this holiday was stolen (in a way)?

It's true! Many centuries before it became known as Easter, it was being celebrated as the fertility of the earth being renewed each springtime. Many of the symbols you familiarize with Easter are actually symbols of fertility; The rabbit, eggs, chicks... Even the name was stolen! It was taken from the Goddess of Spring, Ishtar, or, as she is sometimes known Eastre, or any of her other names.

Have you ever heard of a May Pole? Wonderful things. They too, were a symbol of fertility, and used to coax in spring, and healthy crops. A tree was cut down, and brought to the town square. It was then decorated with flowers, and the traditional ribbon dance was done. I can speak from experience: this is a lot of fun, but can be quite confusing if the ribbons get tangled. In the end, you will have a wonderfully decorated pole, that you helped create. When I did one with my (Pagan!) Church, it came out really nice. (I'd post a picture, but I couldn't find a good one. D:)

I hope you found this enlightening, and interesting to know that many of the Christian Holidays were derived from Pagan celebrations because they were rooted too deeply to be pulled out entirely. I'll tell you more about this later, when the holiday gets closer.

There are lots of fun things to do on Easter, but I think getting to bite the head off of a chocolate bunny is one of the best parts!

Hope your basket is filled with awesomeness!

Lots of Love

Being stunned is such Sweet, Sugary Goodness

Hello again!

I wasn't planning on posting about this, but it shocked me into an awed state of happiness, so I suppose I must.

Since first quarter, this guy at my school has promised me a cake. I'm sure you know the type. Funny, popular guy who dates a lot, but is nice to every one? Yeah, well one of my friends and I became buddies with him. Not the kind that you talk to every day, but the kind that you say Hi to and joke around with every so often.

Anyways, back to the point. He purposely butchered my name, multiple times, just for fun, and wished me Happy Birthday every time someone with a similar name was announced. He promised me a cake on each of these occasions too.
Well, two months ago, my real birthday rolls around, and he wishes me Happy Birthday for real. And I remind him of his promise, and he says that he remembers.

Well, this entire week, he's been asking me questions about it:
  • "What kind of cake do you want?"
  • "It's going to have Sav across the middle."
Things of that nature. And I tell him that's fine, and that chocolate is best, but any flavor is fine. I also tell him that I would be fine with just a cupcake. Yesterday he told me: "Hey Sav, expect you cake tomorrow, Okay?" And I reply with a simple "Sure", not really expecting him to bring me a cake.

Today, I walked through the school gates, and one of my friends is waiting for me.
"He got you a cake!"
"What?! No way! I didn't think He's really get me a cake..."
So we rush into the main part of the school. Half way there, another friend of mine grabs my arm and tells me not to look. I am then dragged to the group of his friends, but he's missing.
"Hey Sav! He got you a cake!"

So, we glance around, and I decide, that he'll find me eventually. We go inside, and to their first hour. Lo and behold, there he is, trying to hide it under a desk. Our conversation went something like this:
"Hi Sav,"
"They told me. I can't believe you actually got me a cake!"
"Yeah. Here."
And then he pulls out a white, 1/2 sheet, yellow frosted cake. And simple hand it to me. "Happy Birthday."

This is where I proceed to walk around the room, carrying the cake completely baffled, and wondering what I'm going to do with a CAKE.

Turns out, sticking a note on it that says: This is SAV'S CAKE. Touch it and you will DIE. (I'm serious), and putting it on top of my teachers cabinets doesn't really work too well.

(Note: Sticky note like that has opposite of intended effect.)

Also: If you are carrying around a cake, expect to scream "NO! My cake, BACK OFF!" Really loud, very often. And, after ding this, watch out for angry people who want to knock the cake from your hands.

Later that day it was really cool, because for some reason, his girlfriend was okay with it. All she said was, "I hope I get a cake on my birthday too."

I spent all first hour smiling.

P.s.Upon closer inspection, the cake cost $28.99!
