Father Daughter Camp

YYYYEEEESSSS!!!! My Dad and I are going on a father daughter camp out on September 4 and 5, which is two day's after my birthday. He was supposed to tell me on my birthday, but he decided to tell me last night. I had a hard time falling asleep last night, because I was too excited! This camp out is held at Fort Rock Family Camp and it's in Arkansas.
There will be horse back riding, archery, canoeing down the Mulberry River , talks, and more! We will be staying in a cabin which will be really fun! The views are awesome as far as I can tell by the pics on there website! Thanks dad and mom!

Jokes/Pranks

Okay, if you are a person who likes to play jokes/pranks on people then this is the post for you! These are hilarious jokes to play!

Things to do on an Elevator
1) CRACK open your briefcase or handbag, peer Inside and ask “Got enough air in there?”
2) STAND silent and motionless in the corner facing the wall without getting off.
3) WHEN arriving at your floor, grunt and strain to yank the doors open, then act as if you’re embarrassed when they open themselves.
4) GREET everyone with a warm handshake and ask him or her to call you Admiral.
5) MEOW occasionally.
6) STARE At another passenger for a while. Then announce in horror: “You’re one of THEM” - and back away slowly
7) SAY -DING at each floor.
8) SAY “I wonder what all these do?” And push all the red buttons.
9) MAKE explosion noises when anyone presses a button.
10) STARE, grinning at another passenger for a while, then announce: “I have new socks on.”
11) WHEN the elevator is silent, look around and ask: “Is that your beeper?”
12) TRY to make personal calls on the emergency phone.
13) DRAW a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers: “This is my personal space.”
14) WHEN there’s only one other person in the elevator, tap them on the shoulder, then pretend it wasn’t you.
15) PUSH the buttons and pretend they give you a shock. Smile, and go back for more.
16) ASK if you can push the button for other people but push the wrong ones.
17) HOLD the doors open and say you’re waiting for your friend. After a while, let the doors close and say “Hi Greg, How’s your day been?”
18) DROP a pen and wail until someone reaches to help pick it up, then scream: “That’s mine!”
19) BRING a camera and take pictures of everyone in the lift.
20) PRETEND you’re a flight attendant and review emergency procedures and exits with the Passengers.
21) SWAT at flies that don’t exist.
22) CALL out “Group hug” then enforce it. Hope you liked it! :D

Awards

Child of God award! I'm so happy to have this award. Any Child of God may have this award!
Hehe! I'm going to award hm.. Maiden of Purity!
Okay, you're probably wondering why I have this award when I'm not even writing a book. Well, I recently started to write a book! *giggles* Anyway, I will award Marissa, Earwen, and Lucie!

I've Finished It


Well, Ive finished Prince Caspian and have started Pride and Prejudice!
Prince Caspian was a very good book, but it's disappointing how the movie is nothing like the book.
I'm sure that Pride and Prejudice will also be a very good book and I've heard that it is very much like the movie.

Happy Reading!

It's Raining

YEAH! I am, as you can see, so happy that it's raining. We haven't had a really good rain in a month or more. We've had little showers, but not a lot. It's 40% chance of rain today and I hope that it doesn't pass.
I usually hate it when it rains because you have to stay indoors, but I wish it would rain for a week or two, straight!
I'm just so excited that it's raining! =D
