Vacuum- Janelle
Sweep Kitchen- Me
Mop Kitchen- Janelle
Wash Dishes- Me, Jeanah and Janelle.

We get to go to do something fun tomorrow! WOO!

Dedicated to Action Packers

I have not shown my appreciation for something that has allowed for our family to move around at ease.
Action Packers.
Those tough, locking canisters that are black with a gray lid. And a red lock.
I really appreciate that they stick with you through thick and thin. That they hold as much stuff as they can and aren't obnoxious like Tupper Ware. Those break and seem very mean about it. And that means that we have to re-pack because they can't hold a few extra pounds. I don't like Tupper Ware.
Now, Action Packers, they helped me bring my turtles from the jungle. They helped me unpack my bedroom. They took good care of my hammock for me while we flew it out from the jungle.
Action packers truly are a jungle-missionary's best friend.

How Not To Clean Your Room

Here are some tips on making your room the messiest it can be!
And I would know, I am a professional at this.
(This is just a joke. :)

1. Forget about buying a clothes hamper. This will only give the impression that you TRIED to be somewhat neat. Trash cans are GREAT to be tipped over, as you can see later.
2. Make sure that your bed is NOT made. Throw the comforter on with your eyes closed and toss pillows on with your back turned to the bed. Don't touch it after that. Let it be.
3. If you have a bookshelf, make sure that they are stacked! In a messy pile. And, be sure to stick something like a candy-wrapper in there.
4. Your desk should be covered with pens, homework, computer games and notebooks. Don't bother piling them this time. Just leave it to be settling there.
5. Make an effort to knock your trash can over. This gives off the 'I don't care' impression.

I have been tagged.

Here are the rules of this meme:

1) Link to the person who tagged me.
2) Mention the rules.
3) Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about myself.
4) Tag 6 other blogger's by linking to them.
5) Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that lets them know they’ve been tagged.
And for some reason there aren't 6 rules.

1. I pretend I am playing a piano by making my fingers move like I was playing keys.

2. I have to have my room A LITTLE messy at least. Can't stand super duper neat rooms.

3. Sometimes I imagine I am doing something else.

4. I eat when I am bored because eating has no effect on me and never will. It is great!

5. I love preppy outfits. Like stripes and dots and polo shirts.

6. Um...
I don't know what to put for my 6th quirk!

I'm tagging-
Um...Giggle Mistress
Uh...Marina, even though she doesn't have blogger.
Eh...My cat

The Little Things In Life...

There are some things I love, and some that bug me. Maybe you can relate.

The Little Things In Life That Bug Me:
1. When you are having Oreos, you dunk it in milk and the cookie falls apart.
2. Sugar ants.
3. Instant message noises...Like when you are talking to someone else, and another window starts blinking, and making animal noises and singing songs and screaming and AAUGH! I hate those noises!
4. When your foot falls asleep.
5. When you have to get the pickles out of the jar with a fork because your hand is too big.
6. I hate seeing stuff stuck in people's teeth. Gross. Eww.
7. When people apply make-up constantly in public.
8. When people spit on the street. *GAGS*

The Little Things In Life That I Love:
1. When you find a penny on the ground.
2. When you have an idea on what to blog about.
3. When the rain falls on your rooftop with that soft pat pat patter sound.
4. Reading a book at night with a flashlight. Hey, it saves electricity! And it's cool!
5. Buying someone a present.
6. Getting a present! ha!
7. Eating chocolate chip cookie dough ice-cream.
8. The taste of my favorite food.


Today my cousins are coming...At like 3...And I am so excited...Which is why I am blogging about it. *AHEM* Moving on...
The poor things, they have to get to the airport, then drive about three hours to where we are! When they have already been on a plane all day. Wow...I know what THAT feels like *hint, hint*
I have been cleaning non-stop because I know that Aunt Verde will want a clean house when she gets back.
Mom is making some sort of soup/dish thingy and it smells awesome! It has chicken and black beans and cheese and salsa...YUM! It's in the crock-pot, and it's for dinner...I can't wait for that either!
Today I have the task of entertaining myself until my cousins come to provide plenty of entertainment for me...They always know what to do.
So my plans are:
-chat with friends
-write scheduled posts
-send ecards
-play stupid online games like Bloons which involves popping balloons with a monkey who throws darts...Stupid, yes, but it is extremely hard and VERY entertaining. I like games that challenge me.
-make a few youtube videos of nothing in particular.
-watch a few videos that my friends have favorited
-eat lunch
-tidy up the house
-write some stories
-draw, because I am illustrating a book that TDF's son is writing. About ninjas! YES!
-make myself snacks
-read MK biographies
-do headstands (YES I CAN DO HEADSTANDS)
-go on blogthings for a while, and do some quizzes.

Hopefully when I am done with these odd activities, they will pull into the drive-way, tiptoe up the stairs and that's when I run outside, hug them and help them carry their luggage in.




Till My Next Post,


They are coming tomorrow! The whole bunch of them! Verje, Verja(2), and Verjo and another Verja. Ha!
HOPEFULLY, Verje and Verja 2 will come back to visit with us in Florida. PLEASE PRAY THAT THEY WILL!
I want them to...But, help them to make up their minds of staying here to visit with their brother or coming with us...
I know we will have fun....I cannot wait!


Again...Please pray that they will want to come with us...


This is Verja..I have chosen this name because it is much safer than using my real name. I have heard of many cases where people track you down on the internet, and find your address (we'll leave it at that), and quite frankly it scares the heebydubbajeebies out of me!

So, I am here to announce that my new name is verja-thewittywriter. I like it very much. Know that it is still me.
Most people know me as:
-my real name
--and a few others.

I have been told that I have personality and wit when I write so I figured that THAT would be the perfect name for my blog... I like fresh new things and Verja is a neat name and much safer than using my real name, and, like Obama always says: THE TIME FOR CHANGE HAS COME!
I am making fun of him by saying that. I do not like him in any way. He annoys me and I find him very ignorant. Before I get kicked out of Bloggotopia or am reported I will stop talking about him.

So don't be alarmed. I am just changing my name, and that is all!
Keep commenting, I am still here!

Until Next Time,

Crazy Laws That Still Exist!

I just found these and I knew I had to post them!
So here we go!
Sorry, it is not organized. But this made me laugh so hard!
(That means that some are in Indiana, some in Florida, some in Michigan..etc.)

It is forbidden to imitate an animal.
It is illegal to eat cottage cheese after 6:00 PM on Sunday.

It is illegal for a chicken to cross the road.
You may not fish on a camel's back.
"Dwarf-tossing," the strange practice of hurling dwarfs in padded suits, is outlawed in the bars of Springfield, Ill., because it's dangerous and exploitative. The practice is apparently allowed elsewhere in town, with a special permit.
Bathing is prohibited during the winter.
You will be fined $1,000 for worrying a squirrel.
It is illegal to put ice-cream on cherry pie.
It is illegal to catch a bullfrog in a tomato patch.

I'm on the bus on my way home! WOO!

I have been away from my blog so much!

I'm sorry but you all have seen that I have been faithful and not starved my blog like these people have:

their pets
. . .shall i go on?

I am freezing! The air conditioner is set to like 50! GAH!

Thanks for sticking with me!

Hi Peoples!

Of the world...From Ukraeena, Paraguay and anywhere else you happen to be at the moment. Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

I really DO try to post, it's just that I am a procrastinator! And a very bad one at that...I tell myself 'you need to blog your bored you don't have anything else to do. go.', but then something else pops up just as I sit down. Such as, someone I know is online! I receive an email! I am told to wash the dishes! I remember I forgot something! Plenty of things come up, and I forget completely about my poor blog. I promised that it won't starve while I am at camp. I wrote a bunch of posts and scheduled them for the week that I am gone.

So be sure to check it even while I am away!

Thank You!

Hi...I'm bored...Happy whatever day it is! Thanks for looking at my blog...Nothing much to see but yet you are still faithful! :)
I will entertain myself today by doing one of the following:

soccer with friends
cleaning the dorm
music class/choir
canoeing/jumping off rocks into water

Or I could mess around with GIMP and turn Phika purple and orange..>She'd like that!
She is the one who showed me, she should realize the consequences when I am bored.
Wanna be purple Phika? Haha!
OH WAIT! I'M AT CAMP! So I can't.

Thanks for reading this useless bit of literature for no particular reason at all other than the fact that you must be bored out of your skull.
But anyways.

Poems For Your Boredom

One day in Papagulilo,
On the side of Franipance.
In a tiny hole was a male armadillo,
Who was shopping for some pants.

Hiding on a footstool,
Holding on tight.
Sat a crazy little beetle,
Flicking on the light.

Time flies,
When you're having fun,
They'll come and bite you,
Till the day is done.

Little Millie Mutter,
Sat on the floor.
Asking for some more butter,
Some more and then some more.

To All Missionary Kids...

Have you ever:

wished you'd never see an airplane again?

had a craving for your favorite food, and felt heart-broken because they don't have it in the U.S.?

spoken the language you learned as an MK, just to see the faces of people who understand you and actually look like a person who speaks the language you are?

packed in less then 5 minutes?

predicted the questions people will ask when they approach your table at a church?

mouthed the words to your parents' slideshow at a church?

made it known to the world that you are proud that you don't fit in?

accidentally offended someone because you greeted them like you greet people in your field?

asked what a TCK is?

recognized the native guide on National Geographic?

felt that cringe when someone pronounces your field language wrong? or country?

made someone say 'im a monkey' when they wanted you to teach them how to say 'hi how are you?', so they could impress someone?

Jet Lag (Thanks for the idea, Phika!)

Missionaries and their children understand completely what I am talking about.
It is the feeling that you get after you have been on an airplane for a long period of time. Such as, five hours, seven hours, or in our case, (Paraguay), twelve hours with layovers.
It is the feeling that you get when you long to lay down in a bed and sleep for days. When you wish you could sleep like the little babies you see in the airport, so peacefully.

When you get off the plane, and so many feelings and questions hit you like a gust of hot air getting out of an air- conditioned vehicle. Believe me, I know...
Mostly, these emotions are:
I'm so tired
Where am I again
Are we there yet
Can we stop
or my personal favorite:

Time zones are either behind or ahead but to you they are messed up, and seem to float around in your head.
You are clearly done.

It's when you are allowed to stop and rest and you spend it writing hate notes to the airplane, and wishing you never have to see it again.

When you wonder, why is it people find this exciting? What kind of person wishes they could fly around the world like this?

And it's the feeling when you appreciate your bed when you reach your destination.

Know what I mean?

Boredom Strikes Again!

I found a funny video, someone with talent who knows how to speed up videos and make it sounds as though chipmunks are talking! HAHA. And I'm bored so here it is:


I cannot wait for camp, and even more so because it is now A WEEK EARLY..This monday! We are going to Georgia!

I Have a Cherokee Nose!

As you probably know, because my mom posted about it, we have Cherokee blood...I have a Cherokee nose, it's long and the bottom is wide...Here is a picture of me, so you can see:.
My eyes slant, too...That's a big thing to distinguish Cherokees and Cherokee decent. I think I'm about 1/16th Cherokee...Check out my mom's blog in order to see our research and my great great grandmother, Nycetye.
