Scarf and such

November 24, 2008

First off, here are two pictures of the flying spaghetti monster scarf:

Up close:

Second, other things:

Instead of going to the grocery store yesterday, we went today. We got pretty much everything we’ll be needing for Thanksgiving. I will be making a pecan pie, which I already mentioned, and layered jell-o, which I think I also already mentioned.

My father and I noticed a dear old couple at the supermarket, a little old man and little old woman. They were so sweet. My father said that the man reminded him of his grandfather, who died when he was young.

A little while ago I was almost done knitting a lovely mitten out of this very same yarn:

when I realized that it was humongous. Like countless others before me, I had almost finished making something that closely resembled an oven mitt, or something of the sort. A mitten for someone with ginormous hands, anyway. So, I frogged it and am now looking for another mitten pattern, one that uses yarn of similar weight to my yarn. No success, yet.

My father (with a bit of help from my younger siblings) has spent this weekend painting all of the cabinets in our kitchen. Now they are a cheery white, matching the warm yellow walls and now newly painted chocolate brown counter bottoms. All together, the colors make the kitchen look much bigger and happier.

Well, it is almost time for bed and I still need to take a shower and other traditional before-bed happenings, so good night and farewell.

Until we meet again, I hope you have a lovely life. (And after that as well, for that matter)


Oh, Stop Being Such A Drama Villain (This Title Goes Out to You, Daniel)

Happy Pig in a Blanket Day! The letter of the day is Z, the word being zanyism (meaning ‘buffoonery’). Both are marvelous words.

I finished the Kevin Clash autobiography and am now almost done with If Harry Potter Ran General Electric as well.

I got a one hundred percent on my vocabulary quiz! That is exciting, especially considering I am on a one hundred percent streak for those quizzes. Words entice me.

Tomorrow, I, along with many others across the world, will be participating in a Day of Silence. I have scanned and posted the card we must show to our teachers if given any grief for not speaking. It is below:


There are only five more days until my birthday. I am extremely excited, seeing as I comprised a list this year, something I have not done since I was much, much younger. Because I made a list, I will be receiving things that I actually want and will use. Thrilling, eh?

Oh, books, you never cease to amaze me.

I am still keeping an eye out for job opportunities. I still really want to work at a grocery store. I love them. The best place to work at, I guess, would be Giant. Because it is right next to the library and all. The only problem is that it is about fifteen minutes or so away from my house. More money would end up being spent on gas than I would actually earn.

My mother got the family cellphone bill today and, whoopee, I spent the least out of anybody! I only spent about $2.65 on text messages, about important things, a few months ago. So, hooray, I do not have to pay off anything (unlike my older brother Jake and my sister Clara- they both have to pay around thirty dollars)! I am such a good kid.

Conformity, marketing, consumerism, I dislike you all. And society, for causing all of these to exist.

Blasted world, messing up my sense of time. I keep getting mixed up on the date, time of day, and day of the week. Ironic, considering I have a pocket watch hanging around my neck at all times.

Wallie was absent today. I am wondering what will happen when he (if he) gets back tomorrow, considering so many people will not be speaking.

Friends, I love you. Family, I love you. Strangers, I love you. Baby Hitler, I love you. Adult Hitler, I despise you. Dead Hitler, I wish you had experienced a regular life and gotten some help. Sad people, I hope you become happy soon.

Best wishes, global beings.
