I ASKED my dad if I could give Baby a bath and he said no.

"[In this lesson] find out:

* just how friendly the Native Americans were with the settlers.
* which Native American learned English and traveled to London.
* who was the father of Pocahontas.
* about Powhatan's marrying habits!"


Why the fuck am I learning about this in my English class?

I have finished Deathly Hallows. And since I have not actually used the "Reading Deathly Hallows" icon yet, I will use it now, when it is most irrelevant. I enjoyed it very much, and anyone who says it is boring is dimwitted.

My oldest sister, Harriet, came by yesterday for a few minutes and during her visit she told me that she was reading Deathly Hallows, but I knew that she had not read Half-blood Prince and I...basically scolded her. Haha, I did it very jokingly and histrionically though and basically told her that these two books are more connected than any others in the series and that the information in the Half-blood Prince is vital.

I can see how Deathly Hallows would be boring to someone who could not see the connection in all of the stories. If you look at the seventh book by itself, it is just a story to be enjoyed or not enjoyed. But if you look at the seventh book while simultaneously attempting to grasp the hugeness that is everyone's life story in the Harry Potter realm, it is quite overwhelming, and for this reason, awesome.

Alright, I suppose I should go wake up Ricky now since we were sort of planning going to Gainesville today. I feel uncomfortable doing anything in the house when Debbie is here, possibly because I know that she will be leaving soon (at around noon) and that when she is gone, I am able to do whatever I want. I can eat without worrying if the food I will be eating is mine. I can go get bleach or toilet paper or tape or an envelope without asking. I can play music without wondering if it is audible in the living room. I can watch what I want to on TV. I can go outside without being asked why. I can bring Baby in without being told it is a nice day outside and that that is where he should stay.

I think I would like some cake.

EDIT: Oh my crap! And I never mentioned! Remember the earrings I mentioned in this post? My Secret Craftster made them for me! She (or he) is so fucking cool! I have been wearing them ever since I got them, which was a few days ago...except now...I only have one. They were sort of loose, so when I went to touch my them (as I kept doing) and only felt one, I went insane with worry. I am still insane with worry. I have no idea where the other one is. We just got back from my uncle Mike's in St. Pete, so maybe it fell out there? Oh, I can find it...

You can barely see them, but there they are: Luna's radish earrings! I heard that she actually made them, which makes me very happy. I wish I knew how to work with wire and seed beads. Maybe I should learn. Do people learn? Or do they just pick it up? Ricky's dad tells me that they have lots of crafty bits for needlepoint and beading that he would like to give to me once he has found it, so I am excited.

Someone on Craftster made them for their very lucky friend:



There's been some more Luna-ness going around as well on the crochet boards, because of her cardigan (which I don't really care for) and her scarf (made by cynalune, inspired by Luna):



Alright, that's it for today.

EDIT:


Which Hogwarts house will you be sorted into?

It's times like these, when I sew the two sides of a lining (for a project that is about a month overdue) right side to wrong side that I feel as if I am the stupidest, most hopeless in the world, in the stupidest, most hopeless situation. Why do little things send me spiraling? And at big things, I just blankly stare.

I got dropped from my English III class and I'm fucking pissed about it. Trying to contact Mrs. Timmons and convince her of undoing this horrible crime against me. Kelsey and I shall rise against these evil FLVS fiends who do not even talk to you, just drop you, even when you ARE doing work, as I was. Quality work. And they say, "This message was sent to be received and not replied to, you cannot reply to it," but oh, I can. I found your phone number. And I left you a message. You should reconsider.

I think I was dropped from my American Government class too, but I don't care too much about that since I never even started (and it's not like I got an F in the English III class, they just dropped me, but I actually wanted to take it after I did that pirate journal entry, it was fun--even though it took forever). Plus, Ricky says it is all essay and no fun (but I think essays are fun, so his may be a biased opinion).

Yet my hopes remain high! Because I'm going to finish all of these old crochet commissions. And I'm going to do all these awesome Craftster swaps. And I'm going to pay Ricky back. And I'm going to be the best swap angel ever. And I'm going to go to the thrift store tomorrow and buy Cody something that is forest green. And then this weekend I'm going to go to the release of the new Harry Potter book with my awesome new cardigan (it is gorgeous--though, I admit, granny-seeming) and The Schwag-Collecting Bag that I intend on making with my stained Hogwarts shirt that doesn't fit.

I just woke up half an hour ago to the tickling of a large, black spider up my arm. My thoughts on the matter? AAAAGGGGGGHHHHH!!!

EDIT: It is now three in the afternoon and I have since vanquished the previously-mentioned spider. I foresee many of his friends coming for vengeance tonight while I lay innocently asleep.

Gotten to Assessment 2.5 in Economics, huzzah! That is including the Honours as well. To keep myself sane, I have been doing things in between assessments and taking little breaks (because with the vast Interweb awaiting, I cannot help but take little breaks and explore the rest). Some of them included requesting a hamster that was posted on the Freecycle of Lake City. Then I made a new post asking about any yarn, fabric, or any other crafty supplies that anyone might be wanting off of their hands. I am hoping for responses in the forms of large boxes full of cool fabric and buttons and sewing needles and stuff. That would be marvelous.

In all of my FLVS classes, I put on a very casual disposition when talking to my teachers. As in...I talk to them IN my assignments. Not really, but I do add unnecessary blurbs. It's ridiculous, but so far all of my teachers have donned me the funny, Harry Potter-obsessed one. I'm not too offended by that, so it's all the same.

My back is hurting me. I think I need to relocate my computer.

My grandma has invited me to church tomorrow and I do not want to go, but I am going. But of course I am going. And then, at six in the evening, we are all to head over to Harriet's new apartment (which I am guessing is Jessica's new apartment too, as well as Zach's and Shaun's) for dinner. We never saw their other apartments before.

On Craftster, I prodded iampoison after seeing her awesome talent with polymer clay and proposed a personal swap between us. It took us half the summer, and I ended up making everything within the last two weeks before our send-out date (which kept being postponed because of life and all of that). Anyway, so she finally received and so did I. She took wonderful pictures of everything for me, since I lack a camera with batteries or a dock. Here they are, I'm actually sort of proud:

And, of course, if anyone is ever interested in a personal swap with me, I am always open to consideration. Here are the things she sent me (excluding extra sweets charms and food stickers):

At first, I was disappointed because it seemed like I had sent more (I'm still sending a package to go along with the first one), but her polymer clay projects much actually take loads of time--the cutting and sculpting, the baking, the finishing touches. They just happen to be small. But whatever they lack in size, they seem to make up in utter cuteness, so I'm very content!

And just because I'm super image-happy right now, here is the new and awesome banner that you should use to promote my new community:
