My sister is a really good cook. Wow. We have like, nothing at all in the house to eat and she whipped up egg sandwiches. Weird, right? But it's darn good. There are sunflower seeds in it. It's... really good.
Next month Emma and I are heading to Florida for my great-grandmother's birthday (she's turning 90) and we get to drive for fifteen hours straight in my Nana's tiny car - with my Nana and uncle. Oh joy. My uncle is kind of impossible. Emma's already called the seat behind Nana because uncle (yes, I call him just "uncle") has like the longest legs in christendom. And he practically lays down when he drives.
What will be the biggest challenge is making uncle let us listen to our music. He kind of hates showtunes. (Actually, I'm pretty sure that deep down he loves them, but that's beside the point.) We have been coming up with ways to barter with him to get our way. First of all we're going to pull the old "we're the ones who have to be squished in the back, so we should get to listen to our music." and threaten to make him sit in the back otherwise. If that doesn't work, we put on our look-at-us-we're-your-sweet-baby-nie
Heehee. We're persuasive, no?
Holy crap. I love Sutton Foster. That has got to be the cutest/most hilarious thing I've ever seen.
While on the subject of Sutton, today is her birthday so: HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUTTON!!!
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
And that's all.
(Except I'm rather nervous about a certain piano concert that I'm playing in this evening.)
I think the cosmos is having trouble deciding. Let me help. IT'S TIME FOR SPRING!
---just had to vent
Okay, so. I have nothing very interesting to write today, but I just feel like updating. I have a ton of stuff I need to get done today, writing being one of them... but not exactly writing on my livejournal page. Ha! I also have a lot of piano and schoolwork to do as well.
Anyway. My piano teacher is having a baby shower tomorrow night, I'm so excited. I adore baby showers and I adore my piano teacher. Her name is Nadya (she's from Russia) and this is her first baby. =D It's a boy and they are going to name him Peter. She had originally wanted to name him "Alexei" but everyone discouraged that saying it was too Russian! Lol.
I've been kind of obsessed with the musical 'Little Women' lately (more like forever) and I found myself interested in re-reading the book. I haven't read it since I was like eight, so I didn't remember much of it anyway. It's really fun because I imagine all the people from the OBC acting it out in my head and I stop and think of the songs during the appropriate points of the story. I'm crazy, I know. But, it's my new pasttime, reading 'Little Women.' I find quiet moments at every opportunity to immerse myself. Please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks this is fun. It's much more interesting than reading 'The Seven Queens of England' or whatever it was that I'm supposed to be reading for school.
So, FUNNY STORY OF THE DAY: Last night my little sisters were being general nuisances and were directed to the schoolroom where they were told to read or play quietly or they had to go to bed. They disappeared for a few hours. When it came time for bed they came upstairs snickering. "What?" My mom asked, with a worried tone. "We're leaving the puppies downstairs alone!" They replied in unison, before bursting into hysterical laughter. Upon investigation, we found the schoolroom in a most disastrous state. It looked as if a tornado had unleashed it's fury upon the very room. Not to mention the fact that the puppies are still un-housetrained which meant an enormous amount of puppy mess to clean up. I was not home at the time, but when I came home and heard the story I couldn't help laughing. It wasn't quite as funny to my sister, Emma, who had to clean everything up. Nor to my parents or my little sisters who ended up with spankings. But, I found it humorous. So, there. Maybe some of y'all might too.
Virtual M&M's to you if you read all of that.
Until next time,
I just wish it would hurry up and start.
