flowers & courtyards

today it was a bit windy in logan, like always. i walked by a patch of flowers on campus on my way home from school..and i got a beautiful waft of pansies and babies breath... brought me back to the little courtyard on 4360 westwood avenue. major flashback.

oh that getto darling courtyard. lots of cement and bricks..and  mostly dirt..and bikes and toys..and a few little flowers. i remember pouring cups of water in the dirt and making mud pies.. filling up buckets of water and having my barbies swim and splash in them..(usually i used a laundry basket, and that didnt really work..)shameful ester dress pictures.. etc.

 we also had a sad little hibiscus plant, that never really adorned our courtyard because everytime a flower bloomed, one of the 5 sisters would promptly pluck it off and place it behind her ear, clad in the famous pink hawaiian dresses, and pretend we were maylie in 'blue hawaii' and proceed doing the hula.
(i miss hawaii and hibiscus flowers.)

i hope when i'm married and live on a ranch and have 16 children, they will always pick fresh flowers for me from the yard so we can always have them on our kitchen table. (and i hope they are smiling like kristin when they give them to me hahahahahha)

did i tell you..

i had boy flush luna down the toilet a few weeks ago. she was trying so hard to die.. but just couldnt. i got her 2 different types of beta food and she refused to eat. i even got her a cute little floating lily and a flower plant to go in the bottom of her bowl. still. trying to committ. i couldnt stand her floating to the top and freezing and going back down. i blame it on walmart for keeping her in that little container for so long. sorry luna. you are now with arogog.

also.. friends of the elderly started a few weeks ago. wooooooo. i seriously love it. so so much. i love that johanna cant hear anything we say and she always gets the wrong idea about everything.. i love that colleen makes slightly inappropriate comments to the boys who come to volunteer, and i love jesse and what she said after she played yahtzee.

jesse: we played bingo. i mean. blunko. i mean. blatzee.
me: yahtzee?
jesse: yes! nazi. it was fun.

i'm already behind at school.
(sorry mom)

i just am so sick of it already.
you know when you get the first day of school jitters? you're all excited because you bought your new pencils with your name on them (i may or may not do this)..
you have new white shoes and a new back pack and you are just set to go?
and then you go to class at that excitement turns into wishing you were anywhere but the classroom.
the gallows, getting tortured in china, whatever...
anywhere but listening to professor ratburn's 3 HOUR politically incorrect lectures and his daily use of the word "poop", just for fun.

keeeeel me.

you know that myth about the lost hampster in someones house..and then you find a little bump under the carpet where the handy man just finished installing the new expensive carpet in your house...
i have that. in my room.
and i swear, the little lump under the carpet is a hampster, or rodentlike thing.
what else could it be?
gives me the willies everytime i accidentally step on it.

also, speaking of pets. i got a beta fish. named luna lovegood. she is pretty.
but maybe blind/suicidal because she refuses to eat the special beta food for her.
do you have wrackspurts in your fish ears?
 (do fish have ears? is that a stupid question?)
 gimme a break. all i want is ONE good pet. just one!!!
