Hello Again, Deserted Readers

Hi.

So…

First of all, I could say my absence since the day of I-don’t-know-when was due to busy schoolwork, scheduling, activities, my computer dying and me needing to get another one and consequently losing all my bookmarks (and therefore neglecting WordPress), and other post-delaying obstacles, but that would be untrue. Yes, yes, yes, there are kernels of truth in all of those, but the main reason I haven’t been posting is due to laziness at first, and then utterly inexcusable forgetfulness. So I am sorry, dear readers. I know I have said it before, and I probably will say it again, but I sincerely apologize for not posting for an undefined amount of time.

With that said, I will move on to more interesting topics. I know, nobody likes reading apologies. And they are nothing new on my site, anyway. (For that I am sorry, as well – apologies for apologizing :P)

Yesterday was THANKSGIVING!!! Wonderful, wonderful holiday. After gathering with relatives, we tucked in to a fabulous feast with scrumptious squash, bountiful beans, marvelous mashed potatoes, succulent stuffing, and of course the tantalizing turkey. After recovering from our food-induced comas, we set about demolishing perfectly pleasant, pleasing, palatable pies paired with amazing a la mode and wondrous whipped cream. 😀 Wonderful dishes, all. The conversation was just as nice, and afterwards we switched between watching football and Punkin Chunkin, the annual pumpkin hurling contest in which catapults, air cannons, and trebuchets chunk pumpkins as much as three thousand feet. Rather impressive, I must say.

I am currently out of school until Monday, which is nice, because teachers aren’t allowed to give homework over Thanksgiving break. Usually long weekends mean extra homework, but not on holidays! 😀 I still have a few days of stress-free bliss, and then back to tests, quizzes, homework, classes, activities, and general mayhem. Gotta love high school.

Yes, this is not a full catch-up on what I have been doing for the last couple of months, but it is a start for posting again. As soon as I can find some fresh and interesting ideas to post about, this site will be up and running again, as I’m sure there is something better out there for me to write about than half-baked updates and apologies. 😛

Thank you to all readers who stick with me despite my unfaithfulness to my little site! Smiles to all! 🙂 😀 🙂 😀 🙂 😀

Snow, Vacation, and the Week of Celebrating at My School

I absolutely love snow! Today there is a small chance of it, because there is supposed to be a Nor-easter (at least I think so) on Sunday. My friend is leaving on a trip today to a very warm place, so we were gently teasing her about missing all of it. But I think she is more happy than sad to go to the place were her cousins and relatives live.

Sigh… I’m so glad to be on winter vacation!!! My brother doesn’t get out of school until two days before Christmas, so he is very jealous of me. I think his school won’t be doing any real learning this week, so maybe he is more lucky than I because he might just have five straight days of parties and movies and all that fun stuff. Our school had lots of fun, too, because we decorated homerooms, poles in the cafeteria, put on Christmas skits, and exchanged Secret Santa gifts. On Monday, my Secret Santa gave me a cute little doll dressed in winter clothes. I named her Genevieve, even though she doesn’t look French. I gave my Secret Santa (A girl in eight grade, one grade above me) a GIGANTIC cookie and a pack of instant cocoa. It goes on like this, until by Friday, you give a 10-20 dollar gift with your name on it. It yields much merriment, and I think it’s the perfect way to celebrate Christmas at my school.
