lauren.

several chemistry pages and a cleaned kitchen ago...
My parents went out, so I made dinner for me and the kids. We had quiche lorraine. No lie. At least that's what it started as. whatever hoser wrote the directions said it would cook in 20 minutes. It didn' t cook in 30. When I finally served it to them it was STILL not cooked enough. They suffered through it for about 5 minutes. Then I just looked at thier faces and said "Baloney and to heck with this. Anybody want grilled cheese?" So I made grilled cheese and ham sandwiches instead. Good thing about not being a mom you can do crazy things like that.

my pinkie fingernail is still teal. i believe i am the only one with it still on.

stories. last friday night. mrs derry got me, Rebekah (aka pippin) and Stevie from the new orleans church in for free to disney. three 17 year old girls into photography, God, roller coasters, walking in the rain, laughing, coldplay and chick-fil-a hanging out...good times. years. i'd never pay to go, unless it was to spend time with someone i never see.

it rained so we took off our flip-flops and walked around. that's the best because you're not sweating anymore and there are less lines as the tourists are all hiding in the over-priced resturaunts. we looked all over the park for pretzels. stevie and i were dying of starvation and all of us were craving them something fierce. when we finally saw some we were screaming happy. the guy who served us thought we were insane. and i scared beks. by accident. wish i'd planned it: the people who work on haunted house try to be scary. the woman locking us into the car was trying and i started laughing. out loud. her face was so straight, i laugh easy and i couldn't help it. just as our car moves into the dark part she leaned around rebekah's side and screamed at her in this freaky possessed voice. rebekah jumped and screamed. sooooo funny. we probably ruined the ride. it's supposed to be all creepy; and stevie and i were laughing hysterically. oh well.
stevie likes sharpies. ya'll canadians would love her.

i think this got really long.
the stars are brilliant right now. sparkling cold. like in virginia on a 30 degree night.

Oh thank you for this most random post. but I think that you give yourself a wee bit too much credit saying that you are probably the only one still sharpieing (haha) your finger nails, because I must say that as the creator of the whole fad, my pinkie is still pink. and it gets a new coat every day. You made quiche lorraine? hahaha. that's good. haha.

hahaha. but since you don't read anything good, you wouldn't know.

jem said...

Neuroperson

wall hugger said...

HAHAHAHAHAHA! I should get a list of book ideas from you sometime.

jem said...

yeah.

jem said...

To Kill a Mockingbird first of all

wall hugger said...

Do you read any mystery novels?

wall hugger said...

I think I may read that one soon.

jem said...

Then the Chronicles of Narnia.

wall hugger said...

YES! I am definantly reading that this year. I think I have to write a big paper about it too.

jem said...

Then Lord of the Rings, and the Hobbit.

jem said...

And the Sillmarillion.

wall hugger said...

Hmmmmm... I saw about an hour of the first movie and I did NOT like it.

wall hugger said...

I don't think I've ever heard of the Simillirain or whatever.

jem said...

And then maybe....

wall hugger said...

Yeah......?

jem said...

The books are better than the movies by far.

jem said...

Then read Tom Sawyer

wall hugger said...

I still don't think I'll try them.

jem said...

And Huckleberry Finn

wall hugger said...

Oh, I have read Tom Sawyer a LONG time ago.

wall hugger said...

And I am pretty sure I read Huckleberry Finn too.

jem said...

then something full of history

jem said...

Then hmmmmmm..... what else.......

wall hugger said...

Yeah, uh-huh something full of history. My favorite:-)

jem said...

Ahhhh. I love history.

wall hugger said...

Ahhhh. I don't.

jem said...

Something Dickens....

jem said...

How bout David Coperfield, or Oliver Twist, or Tale of Two Cities.

wall hugger said...

You do love classical works don't you?

joel sczebel said...

They are the best. More recent writers should learn something from them.

wall hugger said...

Yeah, I suppose. Do you like to read anything else or mainly "old" stuff?

jem said...

Old stuff.

wall hugger said...

Well, thanks for the suggestions. I may take them into consideration.:-) I have to go now. It is late here our time.

wall hugger said...

Nothing new, at all?

jem said...

No. never.

wall hugger said...

Ok, why?

jem said...

Because it isn't as good.

wall hugger said...

Do you like mystery and suspense novels?

jem said...

ahh. Sherlock Holmes. Read them all.

wall hugger said...

Hmmm, that's a good idea.
