Why Not?

I have recently started reading the book Little Women, and I'm at this part where the March family and Laurie, (the boy next door) create their own mailing system in a bush. Laurie sends stuff to the Girls, the girls send stuff to Laurie, they send notes to their mother, etc.
It suddenly dawned on me that it would be amazingly fun to do something like that! I mean, why not? It's like email, just.... in a bush, you know? I just think that it would be really fun. I actually tried something like that with my brothers but they were still learning how to write so it didn't really work out... :D

Also! It's official!
I auditioned for a piano solo for our choir dinner THIS SATURDAY, and I made it!!! Along with several other YW from the amazingly amazing sixth ward! (now, don't you wish you bought tickets??)

Oh Russel....

Recently my brother Russel has become very interested in a book series called Alex Rider. (it's about a teenage spy kid.. :D) I happen to have one of the series, and keep it in a bookshelf in our bonas room.
I was walking up there for some reason, and Russel was looking through my books, listening to his ipod, and all of a sudden he starts rocking side to side, and is saying "poffin" in a british accent.

Maybe all that pie from Thanksgiving is getting to him... :D

Darn postal people.

Two weeks ago I ordered a marimba solo for my percussion class online- and today it came in the mail.
I ordered a level ONE.
they gave me a level.... HARDER.
I'm pretty darn frustrated at the postal people right now.
I have to have this thing passed off in like, a week!

Hey! Guess what?

Hey! So you know how in my last post I said that I could no longer sell you tickets to PHS's holiday dinner?

I lied.
I'm very sorry.
I can still take money until tomorrow! So if you despretley (I don't think that's spelled right... desperately? Yeah i think that's right....) want or need tickets, then come talk to me or send me an email! Just check on my last post for information- but instead of the Matinee being thirteen it's only twelve dollars. ANYWAY! Happy birthday to a certain boy that lives down the street. Oh look! He's at my house. That was weird.

On a side note, I'm drinking hot chocolate.

The Food Drive

Friday is finally here! This week has just drug ON AND ON. I don't know why. It's actually been a pretty great week.
Anyway- today concluded Provo High's food drive, and we raised over 13,000 cans/ boxes of food!! When we started the food drive, we made goals; if we raised this many cans, this teacher would do this, and so on and so forth.

So today at our big assembly, we had quite the performance.
Some highlights of the day were:
A teacher got his huge poofy beard styled/shaved by a student.
A teacher got coated in expired coconut milk. (It smelled so bad, i had to put my face in my jacket.)
Several teachers ate sardines.
The Guy teachers performed a lovely ballet for us.
My choir teacher sang us a song while sucking the air from a helium balloon.
More Guy teachers dressed up as Gypsy ladies. (This one was hilarious and disgusting at the same time.)

As school let out today the office announced over the intercom that our assembly would be broadcasted on KSL tonight sometime. Please watch!

Also! If you wanted to buy tickets for the holiday dinner, hate to break it to you, but you can't. Today was the LAST DAY for me to turn in money. Sorry!

Okay. That's all. HAPPY FRIDAY!

A few posts ago I told you about the holiday dinner my school is hosting on December third, and this friday is your very last day to buy tickets from me!
Here is the information that you will need....
When? December 3, 2011.
Where? The Provo City Library Ballroom.
Time? The Matinee Showing is at three o clock, and the Dinner is at seven.
Cost? The Matinee costs $13 and includes a show, salad, and dessert. The Dinner is $20 and includes a show and a full meal.

I would really appreciate it if anyone could come and support! The sooner you buy your tickets the better your seats are going to be- and if you are planning to come as a family/group you need to buy your tickets at the same time. If you want tickets, please talk to me, email me, or call me!

Also, my school recently started its showing of "Children Of Eden." I went and saw it on opening night and, let me just say, it was amazing. It's just at Provo High School and there are shows this week on Monday (tonight), Friday, and Saturday. I think they start at seven. It's worth going to!

Another great story, at our competition (which was the day after we went to disneyland), as we were waiting for the awards ceremony to start, we were all so zonked from Disneyland that we all fell asleep in the bleachers! Two guys walked by and told us "Great Job," and we all lifted up our heads, said "Mhm..." and fell back asleep. We called it, 'Disneyland Hangover'. I started to draw a picture of it on the way home today- I'll post it when I finish.
