Black Friday

It is time.
Black Friday was today. Sales. Sales everywhere. Gift wrap, gifts, stores were screaming my name. Thanksgiving was wonderful, but it is now time to prepare for Christmas.
I did some MAJOR shopping today. I bought little lady bug clips for McCel, a little pink purse for McCab, a black bangle bracelet for Lenma, a _____ for McCja, ______ for Mom, and a _____ for Verje. I have yet to buy Daddy something. But I know exactly what I'm gettin' him.
If anyone dares to enter my room tonight they will wish they were never born. NOBODY comes in my room anywhere near Christmas! Why? I'll tell you why.
Because I'm wrapping presents and I hate it when someone finds out what they are before Christmas, that's why!
I bought some pretty purple wrapping paper and silver wrapping paper to wrap my gifts. That way everyone knows they're from me.
I was browsing like crazy today. I had so much fun! I now know the true meaning of shop-til-you-drop, because I'm exhausted. But I will NOT rest until all of my presents are wrapped up and hidden away. Only then can I rest.
Verje is a snoop. Daddy would find out. In fact, I still have YET to buy him something. I know exactly where it is, though. And how much it is. And I shall buy it, because I know he'll love it.
I was about to spend the money I was given for today, all on me, to buy myself a pretty termo as soon as I bought everyone else stuff.
Then I realized that out of all times of the year, Christmas is the LEAST great a time to think of yourself.
So I bought everyone something. And, sure, I don't have the pretty termo I wanted. I'll survive. I've made a commitment. I will give more than I get this year. That's what Jesus intended.
I'm going to make everyone GIMP creations, too.
I'm going to make a sign for my door.
I think I'm going to make some decorations for my room. Wouldn't that be neat? I know how to make paper snowflakes, and I have lots of nice candles, and a little fat snowman named Fred, and a bunch of ribbon. I shall.
Email me if you want to know what I got everyone. I feel a bit sad about Mom's gift, because..I don't feel it's all that special as the others are. But I know she'll love it. And maybe I'll find something at the last minute.
Now I'm off before Verje peeks in my room and sees the mess of tape, bows, ribbon and wrapping paper!



How was everyone else's Thanksgiving?

I will get to the good part. We had fun. And food. We had:
-pecan pie
-apple pie
-pumpkin pie
-mashed potatoes
-cranberry sauce
-bread rolls
-green beans
-marshmallow banana pudding

Let me just say..It was delicious.
We all took pictures of everything, well, me and McCja did, I charged Chloe the entire night before because I knew I'd be taking lots of pictures, and McCja charged Nikki, her camera.
I took plenty of pictures. Then I entertained 6 kids out in the pool. 6. But, I'm a natural entertainer because I am like my father, who is also an entertainer. We both like to talk, we're both crazy and funny and we like to be the center of attention. :D
I got a sunburn, and also, a pool sinker hoop tossed between my right eye and my nose. I can still feel where it hit. I'm just glad it didn't turn purple. I did what my father would have done. The little kid threw the hoop, so I made a big deal out of it, slunk over to the corner holding my nose as if I were in great pain. For the first 25 seconds, I was, but I just slunked over, and heard all this:
"Joel! That's enough!"
"Go inside!"
At that last one, I peeked out from behind my hand and looked at everyone as if I were about to cry.
"GOTCHA!" I screamed, and we played volleyball again. I made up two games on the spot, and they were really fun. Or so the kids thought.
1. Noodle wars.. Separate into teams and beat the tar out of the everyone with your eyes closed!
2. Snake. (It's great with lots and lots of people!) Everyone except ONE brave little soul is lined up with their eyes closed. All linked together, they have to chase the little brave one! Whoever touches 'it', gets to be alone and brave next.
It was fun! Then we all stood around on the patio as we dried off, and we sang Sound of Music songs. And Christmas songs.
We have to have that family back over, because they are a riot!
And then of course, I didn't get seconds because of course, 'it's not polite' mleh mleh, so as soon as everyone else left, I got the seconds I wanted. =)
I hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving!

So, I hope you had a great GLUTTON DAY!



:) Please let me know how YOURS went!

We all know the stereotypical meaning of today. Long ago some old people shared loads of nummy food. But what is the real meaning?
To stuff our faces with mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, pecan and apple pie, green beans and pumpkin rolls.
Let's put aside all that. What things are you truly thankful for? Today is Thanksgiving. So give thanks!

I'm thankful for all this food that we're so blessed to have, when people on the other side of the world haven't seen a crumb for months.
I'm thankful for a nice house when people in Venezuela and other countries are living on the street.
I'm thankful for my family and my friends, who are always there when I need them.
I'm thankful for everything that God has so graciously given me.

What about you?
What are you thankful for?

This Is FUNNY.

(A video, but I don't remember the link or how I found it. Sorries!)

Picture This.

A Christmas play. Behind the curtain are a bunch of extremely nervous kids. One of which is a little girl, about 7 years old. Another one is a little 4 year old, dressed in a little white star outfit. He looks really nervous, as if he might faint.
Onstage now, are the shepherds, making food together with their flocks. 'The First Noel' is playing form a CD Player in the background.
The little 7 year old girl is the narrator. She is pushed through the curtains by the producer. She stands there, turning white with nervousness. She clutches the microphone. Shaking, she brings it to her mouth, and yells,
"THE STAR CHASED THE SHEPHERDS!" then runs behind the curtains. The shepherds are still a bit shocked at the narrator's words, but they continue their cooking.
The cue for the star to come out, is the ending of the song.
The little star is told to do exactly what the narrator says the star is to do.
The shepherds are watching the area where the star is supposed to dangle from. Instead, the little star sneaks up behind the shepherds.
They aren't acting. They expected the little star to hang from the curtain and sing a song to to them, not scare them half out of their skulls.
So, now we have a bunch of little kids with fake beards taped to their chins, yelling and screaming and running from a yelling, screaming little star.
The star corners them behind the 'stable' and hollers at the top of his lungs,
Then he runs out of sight and hides behind the curtains.
The audience will never forget that as long as they live.


If you can find it, it is SO worth watching!!


I'm sick. I think it's tonsillitis again. I've had it enough to know when it's coming, and believe me, it's coming.
The doctor told me, the first time I had it when Mom and Dad took me to the doctor, he said it was caused by weather changing without warning. And Paraguay changes weather a lot. One day it's freezing cold, and the next it's Sahara hot!
My throat is scratchy, I have a fever, my eyes are watery and I have a cold and cough. Let me explain this in grave detail, for those of you who are blessed with unbeatably strong immune systems.

When you have tonsillitis like this:

1. You feel like bashing your head against a wall to stop it from hurting.

2. You want to jump in a tub of ice to get rid of the awful burning fever.

3. You're considering sleeping for a decade and never waking up, if ONLY you could get to sleep.

4. You want to blow up the juice in the cup on your nightstand.

5. You feel as though your eyes will melt out of your head any minute.

6. You start writing your will.

So there. That's how I feel. I also have something else I'd like to blog.
I have invented a bunch of smileys.

b=^. <--a doctor who has just discovered an unknown disease.

d=^) <-- a baseball hat on a lil' dude.

I'll have to post the rest of them later.
I have to go now.


I'm ba-ack!

Well..nothing much happened over the weekend. Except for Skittle's birthday.
* cleans up streamers *
* throws away package wrapping *
* tosses party blowers..keeps one for self *
* sweeps up cake on floor *
* wipes melted ice cream *
* emails balloons to Skittles *

I made her a GIMP! WOO!
I didn't really do much. I told Skittles a wonderful story about a little man named Puppo who lived on the twelfth floor of an oak tree apartment tree. He had a mean dog. XD

I love The Honeymooners. I have been watching them and they are SO FUNNY!

That is Ralph Kramden. We have the seasons...XD


I'm sorry I'm late!

Dear Katie,

You are the sweetest person I've ever met. You're meek and humble, yet funny and you're just a wonderful friend. I hope you had the best 14th birthday of your life! You deserve it.

* throws streamers *
* hands Skittles a cake *
* hugs *

I love you, and thank you for being my great friend. =)

* teary eyes * I miss you. :')


Hello everybody!

I am bored today. And it's Friday! I don't know about you, but after Sunday, Friday is my favorite day. It means that there will be no school for 2 days. That is just wonderful! At least to kids, anyway...;)
I have had plenty to think about today. For one, THAT GIRL WHO CHANGES HER NAME SO MUCH, I think it's Skittles, now...Maybe...? She'll probably change it soon...So, don't count on it. Anyways, her birthday is tomorrow, and I have a present, which I shall create with GIMP, in mind, but the sad thing is, GIMP is on the older computer and that computer just shut off..So..I can't GIMP. But I have to so that I can make TGWCHNSM's present. (that girl who changes her name so much)...I only have until TOMORROW!! I have to! I have to make it!! NOW NOW NOW!

Alas, all my friends are not online. I think they left as soon as my computer shut off, meaning I couldn't communicate with them, thus, as soon as I, their entertainment, left, they got bored and left. I love ya, friends! :D

I am writing a mystery novel. Nothing scary, don't worry. The problem is..I don't know what to do for a mystery! I have started it..and..* crickets * ALRIGHT-ALRIGHT I KNOW! I procrastinate!! I haven't sat down and thought very much. I'm more of a 'make-it-up-as-you-go' sort of author. And another thing, I write and write and then I can never finish the book...Or I get bored halfway through and KAPUT. I forget entirely about it. For example...I have about 5 stories in my email drafts and another 12 in Microsoft Office Word. And they have been there since...* crickets *...About 5 months now. Maybe? I don't know. Just a guesstimate.
So, please leave me a comment with an idea on a NOT-FREAKY mystery. And it has to be made up by you, and I want it to be creative. And different. Not typical. Where is Jerry Bruckheimer when you need him?

I drew an interesting picture today. I put my art supplies given to me by about 40 churches, (THANK YOU!! :D) to good use and drew a charcoal picture of a little girl on a swing in a little place by a creek. Personally, I think I could have done better, but...I don't have a charcoal eraser, and thus, I will leave it as is. The little girl is cute! With pigtails. And there is a little stool under the swing. And in the creek behind her, are cat-tails and fish...I want to go there...To that peaceful place. And I don't believe in looking at it, staring and concentrating on it because, um. THAT WON'T TAKE ME THERE! I have a vivid imagination, but I refuse to use it for that...
I have a dilemma. I want to draw something to match my room. I want my own artwork on the wall. Since I can't use my paint-by-numbers, I want to draw or paint my own piece. (My paint-by-numbers' paint dried up...BOTH KITS! * sobs in despair *) Any ideas?? My room is colorful. Themed INDIA, because I've always admired how India is so colorful! I want to go there...: ) Anyways, here are the colors, if, in any way this helps you to think of something: turquoise, pink, yellow, green, orange, and stripes in all those colors along with blue butterflies. I have thought of drawing the Taj Mahal,( Not sure HOW you spell that!) because I have always thought that that building is COOL-LOOKIN'!

I have named my camera Chloe. Thank you very very very much, Skittles! I love that name! And it fits my camera perfectly. Because she has a little beaded dog and a little trinket made by my dear, dear friend BosSha hanging from the hook. Chloe...I love it! : )

I have a few more lessons in math and then I'll be DONE. For about a week, I'll get some freedom, and then I will start the next book...Oh, the joy.

Turkey Day is coming up! TURKEY DAY! The day where everyone gathers round, is thankful, and stuffs their faces with mashed potatoes, gravy, pies and all that other wooooonderful food...:)
We are having the H family over. They have 8 kids. Yes, 8. But they are such a wonderful family! They gave me books!! : ) Wonderful, glorious books. I've read them already. I can't wait until they get here. Their family is so fun! : ) I plan to sing Sound of Music songs with them, because they all harmonize and know the songs by heart. I LOVE that movie! Julie Andrews has the voice of an angel.

To celebrate any holiday that has a hat involved, (except for Halloween or any other bad holiday), ugh..x|) I wear the hat through the week of the holiday. Since I don't go to public school * shudders at the thought *, I have fun and wear funky hats on holidays. This week, I shall wear a black top-hat that I found in the toy-box. That is as close as I can get to a Pilgrim's hat. AROUND CHRISTMAS, I will wear my Santa hat that Skittles gave me. : )

I have been thinking. What comes to mind when you think toiletries? PRONOUNCE IT.
I think of a group of trees with toilets growing on them. What do YOU think of?
Any other funny mental pictures of strange words? How about...Napkin. Doesn't that seem like a better name for a toddler-size sleeping bag? "Mommy...Did you pack my napkin?"
Isn't that CUTE!? I like that much better than something that we wipe our messy mouths with. What can you think of that people say often and don't realize what they sound like? Please leave it in your comment. I like to laugh. :)

I think I've kept you long enough. I'm off to go and write a chapter in the story blog. BLUEY, SKITTLES AND NETSIRK HAVEN'T BEEN WRITING IN IT!!! I, Verja, shall take upon myself the perilous danger of writing in a story blog that is hungry from not having been written in for months and months.
* places sword on both shoulders *

Bye bye! :D

Lots of Stuff to Say, so...SIT TIGHT!

First off, I was tagged by Bluey:

SEVEN RANDOM THINGS ABOUT ME: (even if it wasn't seven, it's seven now!! xD)

1. I'm a stickler for capitalization in chat messages.

2. I hate strawberries.

3. I get up at 5:45 AM to do devotions.

4. I have five email addresses.

5. I have 6 blogs.

6. I express my opinion VERY STRONGLY, which means I can be pretty sarcastic...Like me mommy!

7. I love candles!

* pushes that aside * There.
Movin' on.

William is bossing my mom! He is being an over-eager Democrat brat who is upset that he isn't getting his way. He teaches public school, and I feel sorry for the kids in his class. Here is my letter to you, Willy !

Dear William,
Have you any brain at all? Or do you just shout out random sentences that seem to make sense in your mind?
Well, you have fun in your little world with all the magical ponies and rainbows pretending that life is simple and perfect.


Today I did more math than I usually do. I have decided to name my Canon Digital Elph camera. I wanted to name it a boy name, but, I have three little pink charms hanging from it and I don't really want a gay camera.. And there is a picture of my camera on the side-bar here. No, here. WAIT WAIT! I'm serious. Right here. Click here. JUST CLICK IT WILL YOU!??! Here, here. Here. Here, here, here and here. Aqui. Por aca. THIS ONE. Riiiiight here. Driving you nuts yet?
Good. Have fun on your little internet scavenger hunt! =-) Here. Here. Here...
(You can't skip back to where I first introduced it. If you even try to, you'll see that that post is in my drafts!! MUAHA! * laughs evilly *, * lightning flashes *..* scary music * MuahahaHAHAHAHAHA..ahahaa.aaha..ha. * turns out light. *
Anyways, here are the girl names:

2.Canon...(|:P...That one seems too ordinary..)

(Please feel free to comment with any suggestions. I want the name to start with a 'C'. Thankies!)

I also am about to break into the wonderful, controlling world of Sims 2. Unless, my friends come on.
So, bye bye for now! :D

I Have Been GIMPing...

Obama's New Secretary

"Obama?...Oh, no, I'm sorry. He isn't seeing anyone today...Well, he went to the bank to cash the money from last week's fundraiser. Yes. Alright. I'll let him know you called, Mr. Chavez. I'm sure he'd love to meet with you next week. Alright. Goodbye!"


The Choices are:

(left to right)


1. Santa's beard Ice cream, tasting like coconut.

2. The works.

3. Oreo-Reese's Ice-cream!


Some of My Favorite Photos...: )

Ya'll are gonna love me!!

Greetings, Comrades!

Well, today, I sit at my computer.
I type this. And this and this and this.
I have been whistling a LOT lately. I don't know why, I just have!

I got a clean streak today. I went through my room and tidied everything, straightened everything and I found something WONDERFUL to use as a knick-knack catcher.
While in Ohio, Dad bought me, Verje and McCja and Verna, (all the girls in the family) little baskets. Well, okay, they are made out of pretty wood, and they are the shape of a heart. They are napkin-holders that double as a hot-pad. They are absolutely lovely. I have mine set on my desk to catch whatever I don't have time to put away...OKAY! YOU CAUGHT ME! It's a place where I can put little stuff when I'm lazy and don't want to put them where they belong, and it won't look messy.
I cleaned the kitchen on my own choice, because I felt the strange urge. I found a wonderful paper flower made by my great friend, Higpa, and it just happens to match my bedspread PERFECTLY. So, I tied the pretty flower around the handle of the

McCja went and got my ring from the store, and Dad is supposed to bring it to me as soon as he gets back from their house.
I shall be VERY angry if either of them forget. I don't think they will, though.

Here I sit. Bored.
Help me.

Someone get on Gmail, Yahoo, MSN..ANYTHING! HELP!

Adios, comrades!


Are interesting...

I needed something that would take my mind off of Obama and his baby-killing nonsense. He doesn't care.
If he doesn't care for babies, he has no heart. What makes America think he even cares for America?
He makes me mad.

I have an awesome confession:

I beat ALL of those mind-readers!! WOO! I don't know how they do it, or how I do it!! But I can beat them!
And they all involve math, which, I am horrible at...* ahem, I HATE IT, ahem *

So, just see if you can beat them. I caaaaan! WOO!

Please pray for America...They need it.
Obama as President...Wow...

And, today is Wacky Wednesday, so I decided to post those wacky mind-reader thingies.

AND, TODAY IS WE'RE GONNA DIE BECAUSE OBAMA IS PRESIDENT DAY...I'd say that's wacky...scary...and enough for this Wednesday.

* breaks into tears *

Obama is President.


Obama won.
Simple as that.
As my Mom said, there are going to a bunch of people whining in a year or two.
I have had a terrible life. First Chavez, now Obama. I deserve a medal or something.
Any Christian who thinks God would be pleased with a baby-killer as our President, is a very shallow Christian.
My question:

WHY DO PEOPLE THINK HE'S OKAY!??! He says it's fine to chop a baby's neck. He thinks it's okay, that if the baby happens to survive, that we have every right to just leave it in a bucket in some dark alley to suffer and die.
All I have to say to America on that is,

Get a brain.
and soon,

I can't believe this...I am so upset! And to think that someone I know voted for him...

Well, time for something that doesn't make me grind my teeth...

Oh, yes!!
Yesterday I went with my two sisters to go jewelry-shopping. I found a pretty silver band, and it's being engraved with, "True Love Waits ♥"

So, here we go...4 to 8 more years of this...

Can you see my excitement?
