Dear Cara 29 June 2010

Dearest Cara,

Oh dear, I still don’t understand why WordPress was being so stubborn. Who knows; I’ve far too ignorant to figure it out, so I’m excepting it!

My shot was just as I expected it to be. But on the upside I got a really shiny band-aid so I’m a happy camper. Grace and I are just angry we didn’t get stickers. I mean really, if you were just stabbed with an object of extreme sharpness and then had some unknown fluid pumped into your flesh causing a painful pressure that lasts for days afterward, wouldn’t you want a sticker too? I mean, there could be some amazing little treasure of a sticker in that box just waiting for me to come along and now I’ll never take it home with me! Sigh, poor sticker.

I just watched the trailer for HPDH and now I can’t wait! I need to reread that book. It’s been too long. I also need to start working on all the extra junk for summer reading. I’ve just done the reading.

OH! I saw TWO of your appearances today! You were on “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” and a commercial for something. I don’t remember what it was unfortunately, but I saw you! And believe me, it was amazing. On Sabrina you appeared out of a cloud smoke which was totally epic.

Geez, I’m still reeling from Doctor Who. I really don’t know how we’re going to make it to Christmas without going crazy. But what’s really scary is that will be a mere two weeks until I turn 16. That’s a great early birthday present if I’ve ever seen one! Sigh. And GOSH I’m glad Rory is back. That was a nice ending. Happy but still leaves things unanswered. Who could the mysterious voice be??? Like I said, Christmas is a long time from now. Sigh X 1000000000000000.

Oh! That episode of Sabrina also had a copy of “The Bell Jar” by Sylvia Plath in it which made me very happy too. That’s another one I want to read. I don’t have it yet. I think I’ll look for it at 1/2 Price Books, which we still haven’t visited. Sigh. Though, I think we’re going to the library tomorrow. And they have a book cart kind of like at Mercy except you have to pay for them, but they’re cheap, and some of them have good character. Nothing like the character the Mercy books have though. They’re not old enough, but still good quality. Some people donate the strangest books but others the really good ones. There was one picture book that I don’t think had been there since the beginning of the library because it looked old, but it’s called “Pulcifer has a Problem” and It’s one of my favourites. It’s a close second after “Jane Eyre” for rescuing it from a fire. It’s about a boy who loves to read but in this messed up fantasy world the reputation of TV and books are reversed. It’s neat little book. Very vintage so therefore I love it.

Ohhhh, what else has been up… Funny, pretty much nothing. I wonder what the weather will be like tomorrow. Nice I hope, but hope hardly ever changes the weather. Oh who knows. Anything could happen!

Farewell dear Cara,

Dear Cara 18 June 2010

Dear Cara,

I feel quite bored, so I’m watching a SciFi movie from 1995. Stephen King’s The Langoliers. It makes me happy that they mentioned Omaha. I thought that was funny but spooky because they mentioned that they didn’t know if the city still was there. Creepy.

We did end up going to those garage sales. There were some good ones. I found a Norton Anthology of American Literature that’s quite good. I think it’s fourth edition so it’ll be good because of all that time to work out the kinks.

La dee da dee da. Hmmmm…. What else is going on today… I don’t think anything is really going on here. We had Runza for lunch, but beside that… Well, you’re traveling. Seven hours is a long time to be in the car. It’s a good thing you have all those Doctor Whos on your ipod. Soon enough you’ll have them on your iphone! I wonder what you’ll name it… I think you’ll have to take some time to really get to know the phone before you name it. For instance, I waited to name Spaz because  Machine of Mechanical Wonder doesn’t really do the job for him.

Speaking of the Doctor, Grace was lucky she stayed home from the garage sales because she got to watch two Doctor Whos including “Midnight” and “Turn Left”! Those would be good ones to put on your ipod.

HA! I can hear my mom making herself a Latte. Figures, it’s around the time for her usual second round. Poor woman, she’s so addicted. Oh well, it’s not her fault. I’m addicted to my hot chocolate but not quite as severely as she is. I know you understand that addiction. Sigh.

Good grief, the British guy in this movie is driving me crazy. He has the worst accent ever AND he says the most typical “British” phrases.

“Hang on Matey.”

“Jolly good.”

“Mr. Jenkins, pray continue.”

See, this is what too much BBC does to a person! You become picky about your cinematic Brits. Sigh. He sounds Australian now. Strange.

Sigh, my family went to the pool again. I don’t like that pool. There are bugs everywhere in it and gritty sand and everything else you can think of. Nasty it is. That’s why I only like indoor pools.

I really hope you don’t trip into a pool or anything while you’re gone. Or a ditch. Where did pool come from? That’s random. Anyway, call me if you die. I’ll be very much in your debt. I wonder if you’ll have internet access. I hope so. You might go crazy if you don’t. Too many sites to keep up with. I wonder if the weather will be cooler for you. Who knows?

And so farewell for now Cara!

Love, DFTBAOYD, Pickles, And All That Jazz,
