“HEY, you there. Yeah, you. What did you do today?”

Hmm, let me see…

[1]I woke up at exactly 11:19 am.  I then took a shower, got dressed, and went into the living room.

[2]Later, I knitted for a bit (the scarf is four foot four-and-a-half inches- only nineteen-and-a-half more inches).  For the billionth time, we are rescheduling the knitting sleepover for tonight.  My mother decided at 10:45 (just as we were starting it last night) that we had to go to bed at 11:00 that night.  I am hoping she does not decide the same tonight.

[3]Jake gave me a book to read.  It is called Off the Map,* and, according to him, is about two girls who hitchhike through Europe.  So, yeah, basically my dream come true.  I cannot wait to read it.

[4]Myself, Emma, Abie, Clara, and Benny went outside and moved the bush trimmings (compliments of Jake and I think my father as well) out of the little garden area in the front yard to the woods in the backyard.  We had an awesome assembly line thing going on.  It was great.

My father left a note on the bathroom mirror reminding us to do this.  However, he put an apostrophe in with the ‘kids’ part.  It is still on the mirror, glaring at me.  I hate grammar mistakes.  I told my mother and she said it was just because he wrote it when he was half asleep early that morning.  I am hoping that it true.  I try not to, but I can never look at people the same way after hearing of or seeing a grammar mistake they made.

[5]I am doing a quick project to listen to the first song of every artist on my Ipod.  I have only gotten through six or seven so far.  This project was started in an effort to broaden my musical knowledge because I usually just end up listening to the same artists over and over again.  Apparently, I like familiarity.  This goes for other things than just music as well.  For instance, in Chemistry the first semester of last year (wow, it feels weird to call it ‘last year’ considering it was such a short time ago) our teacher would have half of us move to the lab area when we took quizzes or tests to ensure that nobody copied off of their partners.  I dreaded whenever my turn to move came and did significantly worse on those quizzes and tests where I had to move to the other side of the room.  I like the same things around me and the same chair and desk when doing things in school.

[6]I think this week’s theme (regardless of the fact that the week is nearly over- it will just go on until next Thursday) is to figure out things about me that annoy other people.  I am sure there are lots, seeing as there are plenty of things that annoy me.  I have a side email account, bagel.dogs@gmail.com, that I will now be using specifically for this purpose.  Please email me at this email to let me know.  I will not be offended.  At least, I hope not.

[7]Today we received Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium from Netflix.  Granted, I only had a chance to watch a few minutes of it before the next thing on the list occurred, but it seemed marvelous.  It is so happy.  I absolutely love the character of Mr. Magorium.

[8]We went to Costco today!  I really like Costco- it is a nice, big open space and there are lots of interesting things to see.  I did not have a chance to look at the books because we were in a hurry near the end, but it was great nonetheless.  I have plenty of library books and whatnot to read at the moment, anyway.

[9]That is basically all I did today, I think, so I am going to do the random Wikipedia aritcle thing to find something else to speak about.

Hey, the one I came across is actually pretty interesting.  It is about David L, Mills, the first chairman of the Internet Architecture Task Force.  He invented the Network Time Protocol and the fuzzball router (whatever that is) among other things.  Today, he is a sixty-nine year old who was was inducted as a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, or IEEE.  Handy acronym, eh?

[10]Alright, never mind, I just thought of something fantastically interesting to tell you all.  It is something my mother told me an hour or two ago.  It is so fantastically interesting I can hardly bear it.

Okay, you know King Edward VIII, also known as Edward Albert Christian George Andrew Patrick David or the Duke of Windsor?  Well, when he gave up the throne for a twice-divorced woman, that woman is my great great grandmother’s cousin, Wallis Simpson.  So, in a sorta kinda way, we are like anti-royalty or something.  How awesome is that?

Okey dokey, I must now bid you a fond farewell.  I am off to knit.  So, bye.

*Once again, pardon me if the underlines refuse to show themselves.  For some reason, once again, underlines are not working on this.  Anybody have any idea why?
