So, yesterday I accomplished all my Christmas gift shopping and wrapping. I had to go to Pier 1 Imports, Barnes and Noble, and Fred Meyer. It was a long but fun day. I'm quite happy with the gifts I bought for everyone, I bought my mother some spa stuff, I got my dad a world calender, I got my friend Jordyn (a girl) some earrings since she just had her ear pierced, for my friend Justin (girl) a funny monkey mug, and for my other friend Taylor a faerie calender, a monkey bookmark and a little glass monkey statue. And for the cards I'm sending out I got this:
Okay so it's not very a very clear picture. But the cards pretty cool right?
Okay one last thing for today. During the Christmas season I'll be gone quite a bit so okay just a bit of forewarning. But I have the goblins making cookies, finger sandwiches, a pot of coffee, tea, and cocoa, there'll also be some spirits, and eggnog, a Christmas tree their decorating, and cheese and crackers, some sweets and snacks for you while I'm gone. But it's not ready yet. The goblins might even play some music for you. But that's for while I'm gone.

Whoop Di Do (Sarcasm)

So as I was rearranging the furniture in my bedroom. For a change of pace. I was moving the two special bookshelves that I keep in my room. I have one on wheels and it's really sturdy. The other one is a somewhat more flimsy bookshelf. I'll refer to them as bookshelf #1 (the sturdy one) and bookshelf #2 (flimsy). So I moved #1 with great ease (it's on wheels) and then I started to move #2. Now #2 already had some issues. The shelves had already collapsed some and the backing was already coming off. I began to move #2 And the whole thing collapsed. All 56 of my Nancy Drew books on the ground (I save things and yes I still read them). All my Agatha Christie, my poetry books, fairytale books. All to the ground. So Now the furniture is moved and I have one working bookshelf and 1 tall pile and a half-of-that-size pile and all the nick-knacks that I kept on the book shelf I've had to put on shelves. Yay...NOT.

Oh and if you want to see what's in my library please check me our on Librarything.

A Couple of Videos

 We need to know that we shouldn't jump right in front of trains? Who knew.

This is actually really a cool trick. Those who have seen the movie Labyrinth will appreciate this.

And I really HATE" Twilight"

Thanksgiving and Thankfulness.

Well yesterday I had Thanksgiving dinner with my mom, dad, brother, and  my cousin of whom I've never met before. We had gone out to eat and we went to The Pump house because they have a buffet and it's just easier for all of us. We got our plates and sat down. Now, because my father isn't very religious we don't often say grace when we eat together. Plus he's of a different religion than my mom, brother, and me. So we started eating and my cousin just HAD to say that he's more elegant. Sure he made us say grace. I did not have the best Thanksgiving. I had to act much more prim and proper. I couldn't even have normal conversations. He then showed us pictures of his children. He complained about his almost "ex"-wife. And then he almost got fresh with the waitress just because he cleans her businesses rugs. He realized we were there and stopped himself.

A few more things to mention:
*He forgot my name
*He originaly wanted us to expand the number to ten people when WE were the ones who invited him.
*He drove his company truck there.

Okay so enough Bitching here's what I'm thankful for:
*My family
*Lynn for having a cool blog.
*Filly for being a kind person and getting me to knit.
*Eve for showing what it means to be different, religious, lesbian, cool, and okay.
*Uncle Don For being the coolest uncle.
*Gene Rodenberry for creating Star Trek
*My 7th Grade teacher for helping me embrace my Trekkie-ness.
*My Friends for being a group of awesome people
*For all the teachers in America
*And finally, The Human Spirit.

Please be happy this holiday season,

Here I am again.

Well I'm sick again. I've got a cold. I've been reading Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester has finally shown up at Thornfield. I've also been watching a lot of "Andy Griffith." IT is really relaxing. Hey, ever noticed how when you're sick your house just goes to ruin? I mean all you strive for just goes to hell. That's not the point though.

Thanksgiving is really soon. I hope I'm better by then. because my mother, father, brother, and my cousin and his girlfriend are all planning to have dinner together. It's all one big fiasco. I feel the pressure and hassle of the day coming but oh well. See ya tomorrow.

Lot's O' Pictures!

So I recently went to a automobile museum. With cars and other things ranging from 1890 to 1960. With clothes, bikes, and cars. It was pretty amazing. Here are some pictures.
 This one is a picture of the tree in front of my house. It was a cool fall day and I had to take this picture.

 Awesome really old bike.
 Really old bike riding clothes. For Women.
 Nice old bathing suit.
 The bar right in the middle is the steering.

 The inner workings are completely hand made.
 It was just a really spiffy car.
 I really liked the peacocks on the skirt.
 I loved this beautiful fringed covered dress. The top is lace.
 Isn't this a beautiful white color?
 I REALLY loved this dress the color is beautiful.
 I believe this was a wedding dress.

 When you look at this don't you think Clara Barton?

These are the most absolutely AMAZING. I wished I owned them.

They even had some "Mobster" cars. Spark plugs, other clothes, and stuff from the 20's. Sorry I didn't get more pictures. My camera died. None of the cars had airbags OR seat belts. We sure have progressed since them. They even once had electric cars! Ahhhh, that day was a step back in time. They restore all the cars right in the building. The hardest things for me to wrap my mind around were people really drove those cars all the time and people actually wore those dresses more than once people went about their lives shopped in those clothes and now they're just sitting there on mannequins.

On Writing...

Ever noticed how hard it is to write even a short story? The art of grammar is one foreign to most well EVERYONE! Yes, even you Mr. Big-shot-published-author! Even YOU. I'm Currently writing a story, I'll probably create a new blog to share these stories. My latest story would nee you to under stand the story of Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett-Browning: during the Victorian era a girl named Elizabeth (affectionately know as Ba.) was the eldest of a family of twelve. With eleven sibling, eight brothers, three sisters. Her brother Edward died, she was devoted to him, she took it rather badly and became an invalid for about five years after that. Robert Browning read some of her poems and fell in love with her. After correspondance the eloped to Italywith the help of Wilson, the family maid.

My story takes place during this time but adds another character Florence Conway to help them elope.

enough about that, here are some tips I live by to write.
1. NEVER NEVER EVER confuse you're and your
2. Be careful of there, their, and they're
3. ALWAYS have someone check your work!

Even once you read this you'll probably find errors but you know WHAT IT'S A BLOG.

And a couple of thoughts, the answers to all your problems in 42 and, ever had a contact break in half IN YOUR EYE... I have....

An Election, and Some Music to Sooth My Soul.

Well whoop-di-do for Obama(nation) he's here for four more horrid years. Yay for the state of our nation we're really going to make it with HIM. In office. Check out this article on seceding. Well for what it's worth I hope Obama is unable to do anything because congress prevents him. Well when he cut into my Jeopardy time I'll just get really made like I have for the last four frikken' years.

So I've found a really good new group called Celtic Woman. I love their music. It's so soothing and beautiful. It's a good combination of Celtic folk and modern pop. Here are some videos:
