First of all: I like Italy rubber bands much better than Korea rubber bands. That probably makes no sense, but just know that Korea is much more painful than Italy.

Now, for something that is comprehensible: I no longer have a job!! I didn't quit but I didn't exactly get fired... they're just currently in a financial crunch and so can not pay me. As a consequence, I've entirely stopped buying stuff, except for chocolate milk.

And finally, I just found out that my father didn't know the seven continents. He was convinced Australia was a part of Asia. (He can name every country in Asia, though... try it, it's hard!)

Scetch Dump!!

Since I have been all alone with nobody except my mother, two toddler siblings, and WALL-E to keep me company, I've spent a huge amount of time doodling. Here are a few of my more sketchy sketches... I may finish some of them someday. ;)

My favorite on this page is the papillon with the huge ears. :)

I drew a page of some of the "Things that make me say D:". On the list is... errr.... a lot of random stuff.

I-trip. Featuring clumsy Jake Thomson. ;)

A random lady on the left... the personification of my (are you ready for this?) Webkinz Black Friesian Horse, MD. I had fun with her. :P

A new group of characters, the Magee kids. Simon, Paige, Ian, and Theo. Created mostly because I wanted characters with those names. ;)

The four main characters in one of my weirder stories. (left to right, Dion Dickens, Isaac Reese, Variel Wexler, and King Akenhamen III)

I don't know if I've mentioned this... but I've been really really bored. So, while watching Fantasia for the eleventh time, I drew a centaur. :|

One of my favorite fairy tale characters ever.... Queen Cat (from the White Cat)!! (fairy tale here: CLICK.)

My character Malcolm "Mal" Davies. (Athena)

My other character Mallory "Mal" Chandler. (Ares) (I changed her name to Meredith, because her best friend was the other Mal, but I still think of her as Mal Chandler, unfortunately.)

My character Jillian North (Hermes) in her summer outfits.

Yet ANOTHER character... this one's Sonali. (Aphrodite)

And finally, two more characters. Zach (Apollo) and Alice (Morpheus). Originally Alice's name was going to be "Hester", because I personally love the name, (I think it's so pretty,) but Kievan seemed to think it's quite hideous, as did my baby name book (they classified it under "So Far Out They'll Probably Always Be Out). :P Lately I've been holding a poll about whether or not people like the name, and it's gotten a pretty lukewarm response. I still love it, though. :)

So there you go! As you can tell, I've been mindlessly doodling a lot this week.

And, before I go, I'd just like to say that our cat had kittens! There are two of them, and I named them "Sushi" and "the Happy Cookie Crumb." It's been fun telling people what I named them and seeing their reactions. :D Supposedly Allie wants to change the Happy Cookie Crumb's name to "Sharkfin" but when she told Mommy over the phone, Mother doubtfully told her that personally, she preferred "the Happy Cookie Crumb" to anything that had to do with sharks. I'm gonna be taking pictures of Sushi and the Crumb to send to my vacationing siblings, so soon you'll get to see them too. ;)

And then Chloe ran around screaming her head off....

... because that is what Chloe does when she goes crazy. And trust me, Chloe has gone crazy.

Talking about yourself in third person is just one of the many many symptoms of insanity, so I'll stop that not. You may be wondering what has driven me over the edge, though, so I'll elaborate.

  1. Allie and Ben and Kiki have gone away to stay with Nana, leaving me to amuse myself. I am very lonely.
  2. I've been sleeping on a couch for a month and I'm suffering from sleep deprivation.
  3. Most importantly....... NANOWRIMO is in SIX MONTHS!! I'm waaayyy overreacting, I know, but I feel it's very important for me to win this year! I have to finish my novel!!! Which means i have to have a plot, and characters, and a plan for what I'm gonna do, and the time to do it in.... and AGH!!! DEATH! INSANITY! I'm going crazy already!!

Also.... I fell in love with Pixar's WALL-E. It's so cool the way there's, like, NO dialogue, but it gets the point across so well! Also, I found out that they used a slinky to make the sound of EVE's laser gun firing. Who would have thought, right?

Well, there you go. My (immediate) life in a nutshell.

Today my younger sisters and I retreated to the mall (another air-conditioned place) and did our normal things. This means that we went to Target and read books, then we went to the bookstore and read books, then, we ate candy. Luckily, we also did something entirely abnormal: shoe shopping. I hate shoe shopping, but I kind of needed some new flip-flops, and this store had some nice ones for super cheap, and I had my tips from working at the restaurant, so after about fifteen minutes of fruitless and slightly nerve-wracking searching, we finally bought a pair. Why was this lucky? Well, see, as we were leaving Target (in case you were wondering, we were reading books) Kievan's shoe strap snapped, leaving her foot totally shoe-less. We had scissors in my purse, so we snipped off the tags on my new shoes and VIOLA! We were safe!

Anyways, there is the random news for the day. :)
