Yesterday, I went to Anna and Regina’s along with Amelia and Jackie to have a LOST party. I hate the word party. Anyway…
we had so much fun! First we played Yahtzee and goofed off looking at pictures in National Geographic books for kids…then we made a movie! It was great. We all dove into the dress-up box and started digging around…this was my first time over there…one of Mary’s friends commented, ” This is great! Ninth graders playing dress-up!”
I love it. And anyone who thinks it’s immature had better go jump in a lake, because it’s perfectly fine. There’s much worse ways we could be having “fun.”
It was a western setting- I was the piano player, you know, the guy who plays upbeat jazzy tunes on an out-of-tune piano…I started to play a song, as Amelia and Jackie poured themselves something to drink at the bar. Then Anna swaggered in wearing a poodle skirt (of all things!) and cowboy boots…after roughly demanding a drink, I somehow switched songs, and began dancing to “Blues in C.” (If you’ve heard me play, you may know which one this is…even Jessie, I was playing it at Peniel! :P )
Amelia joined her, wearing a very pretty dress, much like the yellow one I wore for Patience, and the blue one Emy Keenan wore for Pirates. Perfect dress for G&S. So the two are dancing away, and then Anna bumps into Amelia…this gets them into a fist fight, then they both yell “DRAW!” in their best western accents, and shoot each other. I end my song, and Jackie walks over. Mwaha. We shook hands over their bodies. We’d been planning it alll along. :P It was so fun just acting our age. Because HECK, kids our age can play dress up and make movies and plays and all that! Modern society, especially at school, calls for a person to conform, and “grow up,” but in trying to be grown up, you end up looking like a blazing IDIOT!

SO that’s my rant for the day. Oh, right. I didn’t even finish the story. ‘Tis long, watch out!
SInce the whole purpose of the evening was to watch the show LOST (featuring Dominic Monaghan) together, we sat down and got ready, with homemade smoothies and nuts and crackers. The show came on, it was a repeat, but that was ok, because I’ve only seen one episode. I’m too scared to watch the others, I only know all about it because the Tibbets tell me every Thursday morning how it went.
You see, I have a love-hate relationship with this show…I love it because it’s dramatic, well written, and has Dom in it, but I hate it because it’s DARN scary!! Oh well. I hid in my pillow half the time, but it was good.
But the most EXCITING thing happened! I’ve been studying up on medicinal herbs for a while now, and just the other day I made a eucaluptus lavendar rub for congestion…on the show, Shannon, one of the characters, was having a really bad asthma attack. They thought Sawyer had her inhaler, but he wouldn’t give it…(turns out he didn’t have it in the first place.) She couldn’t breathe, but suddenly we see the Korean woman using dark green leaves to make a paste, and rubbing them on Shannon…I said that I guessed they were eucolyptus, because I remembered it from me research…and I was RIGHT! I nearly started yelling, I was so happy. Man, I thought all my work would NEVER pay off! I actually got it right! Almost died I was so happy.
So we watched the two episodes…had to mute and change the channel a few times, their parents are a lot like mine when it comes to what’s appropriate and what’s not. Eeep. Sawyer…never mind.
Afterwards, all Mary’s friends (ages 15-18) came out to talk to us. We watched a bit on the tsunamis, then turned it off because it was so disturbing. We got to talking about sewing and all, and I said I liked costuming, even though I was not very experienced. Laura, (18) mentioned that she did too, and we discovered a common interest: LotR costumes. The coolest part is yet to come! I asked if she ever used websites for references, and she said ALLEYCATSCRATCH.COM/LOTR! YES YES YES YES YES! I finally met someone else who goes on that site! And she also goes on TORn…then one girl mentioned that her brother got in the TORn “RotK EE DVD” gallery! And I found him, I remember which one it was! The boy in the red TORn t-shirt! YES YES YES! It was so cool! I mentioned that I had a review published on ACS, the BIGGEST LotR costume site on the web, and she was pretty amazed! Oh it was the neatest thing…!!!
I mentioned AU, and she’s going to check it out. We ended up talking for at LEAST an hour about LotR…it was really really fun. Then the next morning, people heard me playing the piano, and started to applaud and ask me to play other things! I played almost all the LotR music I knew, then solfeggieto, and they loved it! It was really neat.
So yeah. I had a wonderful two days. At the end, when I had to go, even the two people I didn’t know hugged me, AND Mary, Anna and Regina’s sister! It was really neat how these people just accepted me. Unbelievable. And the four girls were awesome, even though I was a relatively new friend and they’d all been friends for YEARS. *sigh* I’m happy.

Merry Christmas!

Well, Christmas is tomorrow. It’s come up fast, I didn’t finish my shopping until today.
We just had our Christmas Eve service at church. I think that must be my favorite part of Christmas celebrations..I’ve been doing it all my life. Pastor Mark reads the Christmas story, interspersed with hymns and carols, then the pastor does his “sermon.”
For the past few years, he’s taken a story and acted it out. He’s the best storyteller I know. Last year he played a guy who only cared about himself, lived low, drunk…this year, he was an eighteen year old kid with the house to himself, with unexpected guests. I love our pastor. He’s such a hardworking person, he puts in a lot of time on these things.
Than and I made a powerpoint display for Mom and Dad, to a Calvin and Hobbes poem about Christmas. Than played Calvin, and if we have time, we’ll do a second one tomorrow morning with Pippin as Hobbes. He’s got the stripes! Thanks to Sonja and Krissy for helping with the project. :)
Sonja and Krissy and Mal and Megan came over for an overnight RotK EE get together. ‘Twas fun. Ohh…Mal got a dog; here’s a transcript of the conversation I had with Drew about it..
(I called to see if Mal could come that day, and Drew, her little brother, answered.)
Me: Hey, it’s Hannah! Is Mal there?
Drew: Yes.
Me: Can I talk to her?
Drew: Yes.
Me: Can you go get her?
Drew: Yes.
Me: WILL you go get her?
Drew: We got a DOG!!!!

Man, I love that kid. :P He’s great. Mal’s getting DDR for Christmas, can’t wait to go get some excercise. It’s great fun.
Well, I’m off to bed. Merry Christmas to the family and friends who read this. God bless. :)

School tomorrow. I have two tests. One of them is a makeup Bible verse test and I don’t know the material. Had a very busy weekend…I went to the mall today with Dad to do some Christmas shopping, and wore my “I’m allergic to ditzy people” shirt. It was awesome…heh we were in “toys r us,” and I said something about how I hate the mall..this girl looked up at me as if I was a martian…with three heads. Yeah. A martian with three heads. My dad is awesome.

*Hannah is tired*

Hello. I need to go to bed. I sang Laudamus Te with Emy today at church, along with two other songs with choir and the Tibbets.
Been talking to Tulcakelume lately. Extra points if you can pronounce that.

Hardly anything is more comforting than having a kitty on your lap…

Oh yeah!

Oh gosh, I can’t believe I forgot to tell you all about this!
This weekend I went over to Mallory’s for the first time in months, and after the snow, we went out and played in the morning, with her little brother Drew! He’s about Than’s age. Well, we took his bows and arrows and shot them all over, and then some broomsticks, and acted out all the scenes from LotR! I felt like a little kid again, it was so much fun. Drew and I did the Lurtz Aragorn fight, complete with chopping off his head, and then he proceeded to become Treebeard and stick his arms awkwardly around us and try to walk and talk and hold us at the same time…hahaha it was so funny! He’s an awesome kid, but apparently only when I’m around, according to mal. :P
And then we took the blue and green broomsticks and did the fight with Qui-gon jin and obi-wan and darth maul…hahaha that was awesome. And then drew got on his bike and rode around like an orc on a warg, but when he tried to turn on the ice, he kept falling off! Man it was hilarious. Then the little idiot got a real axe and decided to play Gimli, then went and hit himself with it! He was ok, but had a big bruise and a little cut. Needless to say, we made him trade the ax for a stick. We kept playing. :D We were only out there for about a half hour, but it felt like hours! So cold and clear…it was tons of fun. Every once in a while it’s great to just act younger than your age. :D
The night before, Mal and I had put the cd for her church Christmas program in, and sightread all of it! I’m so glad I can sightread music for voice so well, it’s an awesome blessing when I want to just sing for fun. :D We probably sang for at least a half hour, and goofed off, and man she’s one of my favorite people right now. We’re both struggling relationshipwise at school, but we’re working on that. I’m feeling left out a lot, but again, I’m working on that.
Well, now I should REALLY go do my journal. :D
