I remembered J!...

One time when Caroline, J and davey were over for dinner, J and I were talking about dreams that we've had. And I think I was describing one that I couldn't wake up from, and I really didn't like this dream, I think I was stuck somewhere surrounded by people or something. Anyways, J just said, "Anytime I'm in a battle or fighting something, I just say I need a LightSaber, and all of the sudden I have one and I can beat the other people! It works every time". Well, I remembered that today, and I even thought of it while I was dreaming. Which is not very often, it's really rare for me to be able to think for myself while I'm sleeping and control my dreams, but I know its happened. In this dream that I had today, I realized I was dreaming, and for whatever reason I didn't like the people around me, so I just thought "J said to 'ask' for a lightsaber". So I did, and poof! I had one, and I was so excited cuz it worke…

Busy Weekend

This weekend my friends and I planned a birthday party for Meggy. Because of everything that happened this past week, we thought that her birthday might be a little overlooked. Not forgotten, just not what a birthday should be. So we planned party: At 2:00 Sat. she came over and we watched Sydney White. A movie she had never seen. After that we surprised her with Chili's. I think Chili's was her favorite. She was really happy, and her normal self while we were all together. We went to a Chili's inside a mall, so afterwards we could go shopping with her. She got a generous ammount of *cha-ching* $$$$$ from some people in the ward, and she spent it all that night. Then we went to K and N's house and watched a movie. Actually... we didn't really watch it. We had had way too much sugar at Chili's, and we were on a sugar high. So we ended up just wrestling and throwing pillows at each other. K and N's parents quickly shoved us out of the house, and we went home …

What a day eye wasted...

So I'm sitting in Holly's empty bedroom, with a camera. I'm bored spitless. What do I do? I start taking pictures of my eyes, and some actually look pretty cool, so I start taking more, and then I decide that later I'll do a little photoshop-ing on them. It was fun! Except that you were left momentarily blind after each take because of the flash.






The last one was only enhanced a wee bit, aint it per-dee?

Big Shocker

Last Saturday one of my best friends older brother was shot in the middle of the night. I went and visited her and the morning, and she was really upset. I felt (and still feel) really bad for her, and I really wanted to be there for her. I was planning on going to the funeral as soon as they announced it, but I was NOT planning on playing the organ for the service...

How. Nerve. Wracking.

I wasn't mad that they asked me, I should have expected it. Organists frequently get asked to accompany, and perform for different church related stuff. I always say "piano/organ is a blessing, as well as a curse."

It was so quiet, so everyone was listening, and if I made one very small mistake they would all hear it. I wanted this to be perfect! I mean, this is someones funeral! And I don't want people remembering it as "geez, the organist sucked!". So I was shaking really bad, and worrying about everything, and i was hyper-aware (is that a word?) of everyone sniffing and m…

Just for you Caroline...







Ps. Caroline was complaining in the comments that Josh needed a haircut, which those were actually older pictures, so yea, he's cut his hair.... I actually think it looked just (mighty actually) fine longer....

Confession (or Obsession)

Image
Ask any of my friends, they'll tell you. Its no secret, I make it way too obvious. my biggest ever obsession: Josh Hutcherson. OMGosh OMGosh OMGOSH!!!! In my free time I check out his latest pics, news, movie updates, everything. I even check the weather report for Union Kentucky! When I'm with my friends at a book store, we go over to the magazines and they make fun of me while I tear through teen magazines looking for articles about him. It doesn't take very long to find one (I usually start hyperventilating and my friends all roll their eyes), I swear, I could recognize his face from a mile away. A few months ago I moved into another empty bedroom in the house. And in my old room I had this great collage of magazine clippings, pictures, and posters that I stuck to the back of my closet door. And in the center of all of these pictures was 7 or 8 good pictures of Josh. I'd spend a good amount of time each day just staring at the pictures. Sometimes, when I'd go …

*silence*

So you're always hearing about those people who "just want some darn peace and quiet!". I'm definitely not one of those people. I guess I used to be, but ever since Holly and Caroline went away and Dad working n' all, it's been pretty quiet around here, and I don't really like it. It's so.... unnatural. Peace and quiet probably should be natural, but I think people have gotten obnoxiously loud over the years, so now loud seems to be pretty natural. I usually have a TV on, or an iPod glued to my ears, or some sort of electronic buzz going on. I've noticed that I sing a lot when no body is home. Really loud. Like this morning I was belting "No One Mourns the Wicked!" while listening to my Ipod. Maybe to fill the empty air? I don't know.
