Welcome, one and all! I know, I haven't updated since June, but I've been busy. [Summerschool, Vacation Bible School volunteering, the chitlins (my little step-siblings), et cetera.] So, here's some FAIL and hilarity for you -- along with a few other pictures. (My favorite one's the last one.)
Speaking of the Chitlins . . . .
I really don't like my little step-sibs. I have never -- ever had to explain my vocabulary on a daily basis. EVER. But they're Eight and Six years old, and having an older step-sister with the vocabulary of a Forty-two year old is kind of a downside. But, also, having Eight and Six year old step siblings that can't read really, really agitates me. I'm serious -- I was half of Megan's (my Eight-year-old step-brat) age and twice her IQ when I could read! Dylan (Six year old step-brat) can't read at all, as apposed to Megan, who can read a bit. When I was dylan's age, I was reading fourth-grade stuff!
*Sigh* Schools these days are going to the dogs -- especially because parents think that schools will teach kids everything. I mean, I learned to read at home. Same thing with most of my spelling. I couldn't tie my shoes until I was dylans age, though. (Don't judge! My mom did it weird! I still tie my shoes the bunny-ears way, and I'm completely fine with that!)
Speaking of ("When I was dylan's age, I was reading fourth-grade stuff!"). . . I remember that I was an avid lover of R.L. Stine when I was dylan's age. I thought about that a few weeks back, and I remembered that I had a 'Ghosts Of Fear Street' book in my closet. I took it out, and I read it in less than an hour. (It was 'How To Be A Vampire,' if you're wondering.) I brought back a lot of lame, six-year-old me memories. One that I remember reading the most was 'Say Cheese and Die!' in the Goosebumps series.
. . . Ah, memories. I kinda miss being six or seven. But now, I've grown up in leaps and bounds and have graduated into my current state of mind.
Katie's Quote of the . . . period of time!!! (Ha! You probably thought I'd forgotten!)
[Sung in rap form]
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
-- and all the kings horses
and all the kings men said
What? Ain't that funkay now!
Jack and Jill went up the hill
to fetch a pale of wa-ter
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
said What? Ain't that funkay now!
There was an old woman, who lived in a shoe
She had so many children, didn't know what to do
She gave them some broth, without any bread,
Said What? Aint that funkay now!
[you can actually do this with most mother-goose rhymes.]
Ok, that was like, amazingly fun!
