so we got our christmas tree today. the place we went apparently was thinking everybody already got their trees by now so they don't have anybody actually AT the place so it was like 'u-pick'. but REALLY it was u-find, u-cut, u-drag, u-shake, u-drill (tho this guy did show up to help us drill), u-bind, u-tie, & u-pay! *laugh*

the family got this crooked tree tho and it got drilled crooked, so we couldn't put it into the usual stand, so parents had to wrestle it around for like an HOUR to get in into the old-style stand. it's vertical now, we hope it's gonna stay that way!

mom & dad are planning to go to body-great-aunt's memorial service 8hrs away from here. they'll be gone friday, saturday, and most of sunday. me & bro get to be home alone again.

tonight we're making green beans with bacon to go with the leftover chicken/rice/picante enchiladas we made for dinner yesterday. then today or tomorrow we're gonna make rhubarb bread with the rhubarb in our garden. the rhubarb bread recipe is prolly one of the most delicious things ever. *grin*

i wish SOMEBODY inside LIKED raisins. we've got this peanut/chocolate chip/sunflower seed/raisin mix that's SO GOOD except we don't like raisins, so we've gotta pick them out. most of the time at least ONE of us likes something. haha, if somebody other than ^merrick ate dinner (dinner time is family time so it's ^merrick's time!) we'd totally SHOCK mom by eating all this other stuff. *grin*

SO HOT!

it is SO HOT! today's high was 103°F. i love hot weather but nobody else inside does. & 103 is getting a tiny uncomfortable even for me..... the family has the a/c on and it'll prolly stay on.

the google street view car just drove by. i saw it from the upstairs window and saw it turn so i ran downstairs and went outside to see if it came back from the dead end. it did and it drove past my house again and i was standing at the end of the driveway and waving.

we were under the impression that they erased people, but my bro says they just blur faces. ^merrick is embarrassed but i say it's awesome i'm gonna be seen standing in front of my family's house for everybody to see for the next many years. (last time they went by was may 2009!) i'm really excited to see if i show up or if they don't use that bit.

it was awesome to see the street view car tho. *grin*

1) we got our grades last night! 4.0 in the math class, woot! the programming logic prof apparently gave us an incomplete even tho we didn't ask for it. he never contacted us like to explain how the incomplete contract should be worked out, but we're gonna take the class again anyways. AFTER we get this inside stuff worked out.

2) about 3 and a half hours into fable: the lost chapters, i'm just about to start the rescue scarlet robe/prison escape quest. today i fought the white balverine, went through the arena, rescued the archaeologist (minions!), AND took the graveyard path. the arena is SO LONG. so is the prison escape, which i'm gonna do tomorrow. tonight dad* needed the tv so i had to quit.

*i made up my mind to call the body-parents just parents. maybe they don't know it, but i AM half the daughter they know, and they're good to me. (i'll forgive the driving ban! *wink*) so, mom & dad.

moving day

we moved body-grandma from her apartment in a retirement community to another apartment upstairs in assisted living. it was SO HARD. i carried some heavy stuffs today. it's WEIRD being 7 inches taller than myself, it gets REALLY awkward trying to remember my arms & legs & torso are longer. (i'm 4'11", the body is 5'6".) we spent 7hrs minimum packing, carrying, and setting up everything in its new place. for our efforts, we got dinner, and it was pretty good. sadly, we're not done yet.

tl;dr?

so we think we're gonna get good grades this semester we just finished. our online grades for business computer apps are looking like 98% right now & we got great scores on the major parts of interpersonal communication, so we SHOULD get a good grade there, too.

next semester we're taking 'fundamentals of algebra' and 'programming logic' which means that i'm not gonna get a whole lotta class time. ^kv is the math guy. me & ^merrick are both ok with math and i KNOW we'd pick it up quick, but ^kv deserves some time just for him. he never gets that. a class or two should satisfy him and we all know that will make EVERYBODY happy. sheesh.

but classes don't start till january 9th, so we've got WAY too much time off.

we're watching 'avatar: the last airbender' now, which is cool, and i REALLY wanna write fanfic for it, but ^merrick doesn't want me getting into that. he has plans for another story, original fic, but i keep telling him that's how he works BEST - yunno, he gets things done when he has to cram them into the spaces between somebody else doing something. so.....it's fanfic for me!

other things we've gotta do are just boring like fixing the website of body-mom's psychology workplace. it's gonna be tricky to fix it or redesign it so it LOOKS like we fixed it. you wouldn't believe all the extra tags all over the place, like blank paragraphs that SHOULD be <br /> are formatted with <span> & 2 or 3 <p> tags plus extraneous CSS. it looks sorta ok on the web, but the code is garbage.

me & ^merrick are kinda excited about xmas. i've gotten in some shopping in stores and online and there's one more thing i've gotta buy at the local store. i know a lot of the presents we're gonna get, and that's ok with ^merrick who likes getting what he wants, but i like being surprised. ehh, oh well.

umm, like i said, cooking for grandma and parents tonight, so i'm gonna do a little planning for the fanfic before i've gotta go and start cooking. *waves to everyone*

update!

we have been so busy. nano is taking over our life. we got to 9k, started over, and now we're at 40k....just barely! then there's class and we've got a research paper to do and homework for the other class. tomorrow is the family (well, body-mom's and ours) traditional cooking day, so we got permission to skip class. i'm excited about thanksgiving, but i hope we have somebody interesting over to eat with us. just body-grandma gets a little, ummm, boring.

the body-brother was complaining how i don't ever play the other xbox rpgs he wants me to play. he thinks i should LIKE all the character interaction and stuff where you've gotta choose what to say to everybody. well....i don't. so we were chatting about this when:

me: the only thing other characters are good for is buying things from and killing.
(silence)
brother: you're gonna be a murderer when you grow up.

*sheepish grin*

gonna eat dinner with the body's grandma today after taking one snuppy to the vet. (they're gonna talk about the other snuppy who has some endocrine disorder with really complicated & expensive treatment too.) i LOVE going places and talking with people.....i just wish that i could be ME while i did it.
