Six Flags

Yesterday I went with my Venturing Crew to Six Flags, for FREE! We did have to work in the haunted houses, but I would do that any day to get in free. We dressed in the same black cloaks as last year, and thankfully our shift was at 5:00 so it wasn't nearly as hot. I hid in the corner which I hated at first. There were slits in cracks in the walls and ceiling so some light seeped through and I didn't have a chance to really scare anyone, because they always saw me. Sometimes they would point and try saying stuff to me. Urg I hated that. But once it got dark out, my little corner was perfect. I scared the crap out of so many people, it was so much fun!

After the haunted house Jen, K and I went to batman. I had to pee really bad and I tried convincing Jenna that I really had to go, but she just said "Well just hold it for an hour!" An hour? Okay Jenna. YOU try holding it for an HOUR, even you've already had to go really bad, and still hold it through roller coaster! So Jenna didn't believe me when I said I was about to explode. I ran off without her to find a bathroom. It took me forever to find one and then get back to Batman. K was saving our spots in the line, so we had to walk through a couple hundred people while saying "excuse us... sorry... I had to go the bathroom... we're trying to find our friend..." And the people were so mean! They didn't understand the situation and they were trying to tell us to get to the back of the line, and we were cheating and stuff. I was glad I got to ride Batman before we left, but I didn't enjoy the ride that much. I felt like I did cheat. But if I hadn't had to go to the bathroom, I would have entered the line with Jenna and K and everything would have been fine. It's not my fault I had to go so bad!

Game and barf

Wednesday night, the day for the big TCU vs. BYU game we were going to go to, I woke up 2:30 a.m to someone being violently sick in the bathroom. It scared me half to death. Which direction I sleep in on the bed, which wall my bed is against, and how my bedroom is situated next to my parents bedroom makes it so my ear is literally right against their bathroom toilet. I got very little sleep that night. I had several methods of blocking the sound. First I blasted my my ipod in my ears, then I got up and got ear plugs which didn't totally block everything out, so then I tried singing, then I put the pillow over my head, with ear plugs, while singing. That helped a lot. And I still went to seminary.

It turned out it was Scoutmaster who got the flu from Davy. Every time we have the flu in our house my hypochondriac-ness starts to REALLY show. I sprayed EVERYTHING with Lysol flu virus kill after seminary. All the light switches, remotes, any kind of handle. I was using hand sanitiser every minute and wandering around sniffing my oils. 

Thankfully I haven't gotten it and it's been a few days since it all started. I don't think I will get it. Knock on wood knock on wood knock on wood knock on wood knock on wood knock on wood knock on wood knock on wood...

The game was totally different from the home game I went to. BYU lost :( everyone seemed to be... meaner. And grumpy. From now on I only want to go to home games. I learned the song, and I really want to "rise and shout" now.

Mall and barf

Today, my friends and I decided to go to the mall and get twilight shirts to wear to the midnight show. The night of, we are going to all wear them and we are going to make ourselves all pale. We even considered getting some gold or red nonprescription contacts to wear from walmart for 20 bucks! But I decided not to do that since I learned that you can go blind from wearing one size fits all contacts, even for just a few hours. Yikes! 

After we got our shirts, we walked around the mall for a few hours. We didn't buy anything else until we were about to leave and we were starving. We pulled together whatever change we had, then divvied it up equally and we each got $1.35 to spend on food. I got a jr. burger and N got two corndogs! Did you know that Sonic charges 50 freakin cents for a slice of american cheese on your burger? What a rip off!

When I came home from shopping, Davy was here, and happily tromping around as usual. He saw me eating a popsicle, and came right up to me and "begged" for some. As much as I love my cutie-patootie nephew, I was not willing to share my last coconut popsicle (he'd also just had the flu and I did not want to take the risk of catching it) but I gladly got him his very own raspberry one. I couldn't help but laugh every time he took a bite. The cold must have shocked him or something, his eyes would get so wide!

Later that day, we were just getting ready to take him home and he was screaming his head off, and we didn't know why, until he threw up all over Madre. I don't know how many times Madre has been thrown up on. But I admire her... calmness..? She never freaks out like I know I would. She always takes care of them first. She took Davy into the bathroom where he splattered all over the floor again, and stripped him down and made him stand near the toilet, all the while saying "oh you poor baby, that's why you were crying. Your poor tummy hurt!" She didn't once complain like I would have done.

Good job Madre. I hope I can be like you when my kid barfs all over me.

Loved it!

I just finished reading this book and I loved it! It is one of Madre's favorites, and I think I might have to add it to my list of favorites too. It definitely wasn't what I expected. I thought, oh its one of Madre's favorites it'll be something with a profound message and big words I don't understand and I won't be able to wrap my head around any of it. But I enjoyed it all the same. It makes me want to have a nice big journal that I can write in everywhere I go.

Last spot open

Last night was Young Women in Excellence. My best friend Jenna finished her personal progress and she got her medallion and statue last night also. Yay Jenna! I am really happy for her, but now there is only one spot left on the plaque and Jenna's sister S is sure to get it. I am close, but not nearly as close as she is. So I'm going to have to battle it out and see if I can get that last spot right below my best friend. That would be neat. I would LOVE to be next to Jenna. But if I can't do it, I will make sure I am FIRST on the new plaque :)

Another Obsession

This show is rapidly becoming another obsession. Scoutmaster (who, BTW was released from his calling as the scoutmaster, but I'll always see him as the crazy OCD-about-scouting dad so I'm still going to call him Scoutmaster :) started it. And he has been putting the Office on the netflix queue for the past two months. I know the show backwards and forwards, and Scoutmaster and I are always quoting it and sharing our favorite parts of the show. The new season started a couple weeks ago, and the first episode is hilarious! I think I might watch it again.

Just putting it out there

My family had started this new... tradition. I guess. I don't know if we will keep it up every year. But for the past 2 years we've picked names for Christmas, and I don't know who has me. And I have been trying to find out, but everyone just says "I don't know, Em" so, just putting it there for my sisters and family that read my blog: Can I have this?

If you haven't ever read the Artemis Fowl books, I strongly suggest it. They are so much fun, I love them!
