Quiznos Leftovers

Friday, June 25, 2004 at 12:19 AM | Filed under , , ,

We didn't picnic at the park because it wasn't sunny enough for a picnic, so Granny, Gramps, Stephanie, and I ate inside Quiznos instead. I have leftovers! Leftovers are special for when you don't like to cook because "POP" into the microwave and it's ready to eat! So I have the leftover Quiznos sub, and some microwavable lasagna that I can heat up for lunches.

Kevin came over today (again). We played outside and played Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour on the GameCube. It's cool because you can transfer characters from the GBA version to the GCN version!

The weather has decreased in sunniness. It's bittersweet, I guess, in that it's not so hot, but then again, it's not as sunny...

I can't believe this guy! That Jeopardy! champion is still running strong! He's already won at least a half-million dollars! I wonder if he'll get to be a 20-day champion.

Well, I gotta get my sleep now. I don't want to end up staying awake till 2:30 AM and waking up at noon like last summer.

Finals

Friday, June 18, 2004 at 5:08 PM | Filed under

On Wednesday, the schedule called for my Art Books and Drafting finals. The final for Art Books wasn't that bad. Ms. Coburn has us fold a few origami papers into some kind of box-like spherical thing. Folding each page wasn't too hard; piecing the twelve papers together was the hard part. I think she gave everyone who finished it full credit, so yay!

Mr. Huddleson cancelled the final for us Drafting 1/2 students. The Drafting 1 students, however, had to do a rather difficult project.

Thursday was my Precalculus final. The schedule also said it was my English final day, but remember, we took that last month (I aced it). The math test was not very hard, overall. I got frustrated and confused with some trig though and left a few answers blank...

Today, I had my World Civ. final. It wasn't too hard. Just a few fill-in-the-blanks and a short response to a quotation. That wasn't hard. I also had my Biology final. That wasn't hard—I'm good at this stuff.

During Precalculus class today, a few of us went to the Mac Lab to take an Accuplacer test. This test was not easy, even for a Pre-Calc student. We got our results immediately (except for Aaron—his computer got messed up or something), and I finished in the ninety-nine percentile! Wahoo. Next year, I'll be taking Calculus for college credit!

We're having a garage sale today and tomorrow. I'm taking a break right now from it. It's been sunny as hell until about an hour ago. Whew—tired and sweaty. Fortunately, the neighbors too are having a garage sale, so they've been talking with us, so at least it's not boring. I took the fan outside a while ago.

Well, I'm going to get back outside now.

Dad Sang at Chevys

We went to Chevys today. We got 50% off of our meal because Dad sang a song, we brought in an avocado, and some other things. Then we went to Office Depot so Stephanie could get some Vis-A-Vis Pens. While there, I looked at the PDA's. These things are so cool! I wrote with the stylus, and it recognized my handwriting and converted it into text! Awesome! Then we went to La-Z-Boy. Mom and Dad bought a pair of recliners—we're getting them delivered here some time Saturday.

Garfield: The Movie

Friday, June 11, 2004 at 11:57 PM | Filed under , ,

At about 8:30 p.m., Mom, Dad, Kevin, Stephanie, and I left home to go to Target. While there, I bought a pack of Garfield Trading Cards. I got four cards: one of Lyman, one of the movie version of Arlene, one of the entire Garfield cast, and one with the Garfield and Friends TV show on it. I also got a window cling sticker!

Then we crossed the street to the Grand Cinemas to get a 10:00 p.m. ticket to Garfield. Of course, we got there at 9:00, so we had to wait a while. Mom, Stephanie, and Kevin seemed to spend a lot of time in front of the concessions stand getting a huge bucket of popcorn. Dad played a racecar arcade game, and I made sound effects (the game was muted). On our way to see if we were allowed to be admitted into the theater, I ran into Bryan. He had just gotten out of the 8:00 showing of Garfield. I asked him what he thought of it, and he said something about it not being as good as he had hoped. Before we were admitted into the theater, Stephanie tried to catch popcorn in her mouth, but failed miserably...

Oh, and Stephanie thought it would be fun to bring the stuffed Garfield I got for my birthday. She held it in her lap during the movie.

Then we entered the theater. We sat through a slideshow of advertisements for perhaps 20 or 30 minutes before the movie began. There was also some short Ice Age thing about a squirrel with nuts who fell and almost got killed by a nut or something. Then the movie started.

It was a pretty good movie. I understand that Arlene couldn't be pink—otherwise, it would look unrealistic—but Nermal's voice was waaaaaaaaaaay off. Nermal's supposed to have the soft, cute, high-pitched, annoying, childish kitten voice. I guess I'll say that the book is better than the movie—it has more details and tells more than the movie does. However, the train scene was much more fun to watch in the movie. I was laughing throughout it. I guess I'll be buying the DVD... Eleven thumbs up. That's right. Not as good as Harry Potter...

Stephanie's in the living room right now, trying to catch popcorn in her mouth. I just heard Kevin say, "I think it's the throwing, and not the catching, that you're having trouble with."

An Ordinary Day

Thursday, June 10, 2004 at 5:12 PM | Filed under

Today was quite a day. First, I awakened. Then I thought about getting up out of bed. Then I got up out of bed. Then I climbed down from my bed. Then I thought about misting my lizards. Then I misted my lizards. Then I changed clothes. I did my hair and ate breakfast. It was Froot Loops with marshmallows in it. The marshmallows are supposed to be aliens for some reason...

Then we drove to school. I went to Mrs. MacWilliams' class. We did English there. We read "The Missing Piece" and it was quite a day. Then I had Pre-Calculus, and again, Mr. Youngren had trouble getting people's attention. Then it was lunch. It was rainy, so we had to eat lunch under the cover of the thing instead of eating in the lunchroom. Then it was Biology and we had to watch one exciting video followed by a less exciting (boring, if you will) video. Then I boarded the bus. VROOM!

Tonight at about 5-ish, Animal Planet is going to air a special about Garfield the Movie. Then at about 7-ish, we have to go to Stephanie's school for a concert of some kind.

Shrek & Harry Potter

Sunday, June 6, 2004 at 9:03 PM | Filed under

Yesterday at around noon, Kevin, Ryan, Stephanie, Mom, and I went to a private showing of Shrek II hosted by Mom's bank at the Edmonds Theatre. It was quite a funny movie. I like the part when the Starbucks customers (it actually wasn't Starbucks, but a spoof—Farbucks, I guess) ran across the street into the other Starbucks when they got frightened by a giant "something". Better than what I thought it would be. I liked the dilemma that Shrek faces. Nine thumbs up. The movie ended at 2:30.

Then I went to Nick's birthday party from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM. I was barely on time. It was a good party I guess. We played tag and capture the flag for a long time (yeah, a little too long)... I liked playing Mafia. I gave him a card and money inside. I didn't want a hot dog—I wasn't hungry. I did, however, take a marshmallow, and shove a tiny Hershey Bar segment through a marshmallow. It tasted like a chocolate bar with marshmallow in it, but in this case, it was a marshmallow with chocolate in it.

At 10:30 PM (well, actually, we got at the theater at 9:30 and waited an hour), Kevin, Stephanie, Dad, and I went to see Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban at the theater next to California Burger. Now, this was my favorite book, but I didn't know the movie was going to be so good. I like the whole time-travel thing there. I guess this Harry Potter movie is better than the last two combined. Seventeen thumbs up.
