"I'm a nun - I'm a penguin!"

(no subject)

I found out that my dad is doing Navy stuff in another part of the state for several months, so during part of the summer, he'll be away 4 days a week. My mom and sister are flying to Vermont in July, so I'll probably have the house to myself for at least a few days. Alpha is in late July, right around when they're going to Vermont, and afterwards I might go to Vermont too, possibly with a friend of the family who is trying to find time for Vermont in her schedule, preferably when I'm around so we can talk in British accents and she can rave about my writing. I don't know when my mom and sister are coming back from Vermont, and I don't know how long I'd stay there, but it would be really cool if I had the house to myself for a while. Then I could have people over without my family scaring them away (when you have weird friends and a relatively normal immediate family, things get strange), I could use the jacuzzi without worrying about someone walking in (I don't know why my parents don't have a lock on their bathroom door, and I don't know why they don't use the jacuzzi when it's right there... it's a JACUZZI, for crying out loud!), and I could play all the computer games I wanted. Of course, I'd also have to cook, keep the house reasonably clean, and answer the phone and door. Oh well. I still don't know what's going on this summer and if I'll even have a job (I've been trying to get one for several months now, but it's not really working), but we'll see what happens.

Today the Rodgers came over briefly, and I planted some snapdragons. Our new next door neighbor's black lab came over and hung out with us, and apparently he likes our yard better than his. He's a nice doggie. Yesterday Spam and I went to see "Bruce Almighty, and it was hilarious. During that scene where he makes his rival anchor talk in jibberish, I nearly had a seizure from laughing so hard. I couldn't breathe, and my cheeks and back ached afterwards. After the movie, we went to McDonalds and back to my house, where Spam fell in love with Mox and decided to steal him (and me too). We had some more AIM fun with Megan and a future Alphan, and we had some fun with the kitten... and each other (Aieeeee! Cold hands! Cold hands!). And I'm sleepy. Me go night-night now.
