Fun, fun, fun

Last night was tons o' fun. I was babysitting (like I had mentioned before), so I was doing all the good aunt things. I took the kids outside a bunch, made them a spaghetti dinner and let them eat ice cream. At 8:30, Nikki came over and we called other people to join the mini party (oops, "gathering"). JC came first, then Lewis. They played Smash Bros with my 7 year old nephew. Nik and I ordered a pizza cus neither of us had eaten (I made too few noodles so only the kids got pasta.) Charlie came over next and the boys continued video games while Nik and I waited for pizza, watched Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead and put Zoe to bed.

When Zoe was asleep and we had devoured the pizza, Nik and I joined the guys downstairs. We all decided to watch Almost Famous. I put Mikey (my nephew) on the couch upstairs with cartoons on, and he fell asleep there. I was going to move him, but when I tried to get him up to take him to a room with a bed, he was unresponsive.

Candace came right as Almost Famous started, and we watched until about 12, when we paused it so the curfew people could leave (and of course we spend 15 minutes rearranging cars in the driveway because no one can park logically). As they were leaving, Jenny and Elliott showed up, so they, Charlie, Lewis and I finished the movie. It ended around one, and they all left. I cleaned/straightened up the house, checked on the kids, turned on night lights and off hall lights, locked doors, and all the other responsible care-taker jobs. I would have updated my journal last night after they left, but I was too tired. So I do it now.

Already this morning, I'm been checking out the NPosters (or NPostors...I checked a dictionary and they both mean the same thing, but whenever I see NPosters, I think of a wall poster). Anywho, I should go...maybe shower and get some lunch. Perhaps I will go shopping today, I'm in the mood to spend a lot of money that I don't really have to spend...hmmm, money! Yummy.

Alright, that's it for now. Parents and sister come home today, no more house to myself. Sucks, but I had a good weekend anyway.

New Entry - So Much Happiness

Well, I have nothing really new to say, but ya know, it's been about 3 1/2 hours since I last posted. *Gasp* *smiles*

I enjoy getting responses to my journals and comments, so I figure, the more I write, the more people I can make laugh (or at least chuckle...okay, maybe just raise an eyebrow, shake their heads and keep reading). Either way, I'm reaching new people. The internet is a wonderful thing.

The NPostors just keep growing and getting funnier. So great. Thus far, I've made comments and gotten responses from Lance_Bass, Bobbie Chasez, and Therealdirk. I think it's the coolest thing ever. It's so fun, and gives me something to do when I sit around bored during summer vacation.

Only one month and six days until school...yuck. I enjoy the building, the teachers, most of the people, most of the classes. What I can't stand is the homework. If there wasn't homework, I'd probably be the best student ever. Oh well, I'll stick to slacking off and having more fun than my studious friends. In the long run I will remember my high school experience as being better than theirs because I had the most fun. That's all that matters is the memories.

Not too sure what else to say. I have 417 mp3s on my computer. They rock! I love music sooooo much. I'm going to be getting one of those new mp3-CD players. They can play up to 20 hours of music because you burn mp3s onto the CD-Rs instead of wav files (which are significantly bigger). It boggles the mind that I bother to buy as many actual CDs as I do. I actually prefer to buy them than download all the songs. That's cheating. If my sister owns a CD, sure I'll make a copy of it (that's the one CD per household rule), but I usually just buy it any way. To each his own I guess...or as they say in France "Chacun ses gouts".

Parents are home, which sucks BIG TIME. Within the first 5 minutes of them walking through the door, they were already fighting. I think I enjoyed the weekend not because I had the house to myself, but because they weren't there. And they wonder why I go out every night. Parents can suck a lot sometimes. :o(

Well, I hate to end on a bad note, so I will try and cheer myself up. My sister's wedding is in a month and two days. How scary? I still need to decide if I'm going to be bringing a date...and if I am, I should really ask him soon. Hmmm, who to ask. Actually I know exactly who I would ask, I just haven't seen him in a while. I should really get on that.

Okay, I feel better, I can go now. I'll check back later! Ta ta for now everyone...and have a great Sunday! :o)

    My playlist is above (the return of mp3s!!!)

I gave in...

It's too hard to keep checking all the NPostors journals, so I gave in and put a few on my friends list. I'd like to say "hey" to therealdirk...thanks for the wonderful complement and for mentioning me in your journal. You are the best (and the coolest ferret ever!).

Nothing to really say now, but I'll be back soon, never fear!
