Today was another story, which doesn’t really matter to me because I wouldn’t have gone either. However, I’m not sure why it was a snow day because there is about 5 more inches of snow, but the roads are perfectly fine. They’re even better hype here, now, than when we have 2 or 3 inches. So my day off isn’t so special.
I actually didn’t go to the courthouse with mom and Tim because Tim told me not to. I was really tired and couldn’t drag myself out of bed. Then I decided I have nothing to wear that isn’t black, which is true. It sounds like I didn’t miss much. Liz, my aunt, and Grandpa went too and from what Mom says Liz got the car stuck in the driveway because Grandpa told her that she needed to turn around and he’s driven “for over forty years” so he should know. Then when everyone was in the mall parking lot Liz said “if he hadn’t said anything” and Grandpa said her husband deserve to beat her. So she was crying and said “Fuck you” really loudly while Mom and Tim were heading to the car and trying not to be associated. Later Grandpa was all “I still love you Lizzie.” I know he’s aging but these aren’t just personality traits. Sometimes the thing that he says are downright scary.
Mrs. Farmer said my interview went well, and that I really won people over because of my decision to go to Arizona blindly. They know that financial circumstances are a problem and we can’t really overcome them at this time, so I hope that will be a factor in what scholarships I may receive and how much. On the topic of money, Ben made me feel better the other night because he said one day I will own a house and have five cars and not have to worry about it. II <3 Ben
I had some problems with my Lita Ford fanlisting, but now they’re fixed. We really need some people to apply to be reviewed at Adrenaline. So pretty, pretty please? -gives puppy dog eyes*
Here’s the Friday Five
1. …your first grade teacher’s name?
I think it was Mrs. Louis, but I don’t remember her at all. I don’t even remember my kindergarten teacher’s name.
2. …your favorite Saturday morning cartoon?
Garfield! dun dun dun dun (Garfield theme song!)
3. …the name of your very first best friend? Crystal
4. …your favorite breakfast cereal?
We never had anything good. Once we had to eat oatmeal for two months straight because my mom’s ex is an asshole. Needless to say, I rarely touch oatmeal anymore. I really like honeycomb now, though. Oh! Wait! I remember that I used to have cream of wheat at grandma’s house and I loved it. She always made it so perfectly and I could never master that art. Go Grandma!
5. …your favorite thing to do after school?
I used to have this Best Friends Forever club thingy. So I did that a lot. I’d call meetings on Saturdays and the like. Hum. I’d come home and play Barbies a lot. I also played house and took walks. We lived in the country so I could disappear for hours down by the creek. I didn’t watch a lot of TV, I know that. I would play with the cats and dogs and sometimes I would go out into “the shed” which is where Dan kept all his “junk” and take some inside. Dan was a “junk man;” he collected old appliances and tore them apart to sell the metal to places as scrap or to sell as parts. He kept this in the shed and out behind the shed. So the stuff I was bringing in was dirty and not very healthy.
