Going to Camp!!

Okay, so I know I've been pretty terrible with regular posts, but here's a warning that I will not be posting AT ALL for the next week because I am GOING TO CAMP!!!

Every summer, I spend a week at Camp Wightman. This will be my third year doing this.

I love camp! Yeah, sure, it's a Baptist camp so it's pretty Jesus-y, but they're actually really tolerant of heathens like me. Plus the grounds are gorgeous and there is SO much fun stuff to do (swimming, sailing, kayaking, ropes, campfires, singing...), and the food is AMAZING!

When I return, I shall do a post solely concerned with the amazingness that is Camp Wightman.


P.S. In honor of mandachan, I will be forcing my cabin-mates to learn/sing "The Campfire Song Song" Every. Single. Campfire.

Haven't... posted... in so... LONG!

Sorry! Very sorry! Very sorry for not posting in so long!

It's just that, well, nothing's been happening with me. I've been spending all my days mostly alone in the house either watching Doctor Who or reading fanfiction.

I didn't do much today either. Slept until 1. Started the impossible task of going through all my clothes to see which ones are going to Goodwill. Began the preparations for going to camp (love camp!). Made some tentative plans for tomorrow.

And yeah. Not much interesting stuff going on in my life. I'll try to post more though... as soon as I get home from camp. I leave on Sunday. Whoo!

Because I'm Five....

Ho-Hum. It's a rainy day. All my friends are busy or have vanished off the face of the planet. I'm bored and lonely. I guess there's only one thing for me to do...


....Because I'm five....

In the lineup for the marathon we have some classics: "The Lion King", "The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride" (only Disney sequel that was ever good...), "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (personal favorite), "Hercules" (spawned my mythology obsession), "Mulan" (I heart Chinese culture), "Pocahontas" (my Dad's favorite, oddly enough), and "Tarzan" (for the following quote: "Are you sure this water's sanitary?! It looks QUESTIONABLE to meeee!!").

I may decide to watch some more later, but these seven are my favorites so they get priority.

Going to go watch Disney, sing along to cute songs, and generally act like a child now...

Another One Bites the Dust

MUAHAHAHAHA!!! Yet another of my friends has been initiated into the cult of Firefly!!

Yesterday, I went over to Tara's house with Hannah. After being mobbed by her puppies, we sat down to watch the first episode of Firefly. Hannah LOVED it! We're going to try to get together to watch more of the series soon. Hannah is the seventh person I've indoctrinated in Firefly (Laurel, Tang, the EGE, mandachan, Tara, and Matt).

It makes me happy to bring another person into the Firefly fold. :)

...Yeah, I'm weird.

Hannah and Tara also showed me a funny script for a mumblecore movie (an extremely low-budget movie starring the writer's/director's friends) that they're making. They apparently created a character specifically with me in mind: The Not-So-Fair Maiden. I am actually very amused by it.

Anywho, an awesome fun day with my buddies.

Beach Day of Amazingness!

Yesterday, I jumped off a bridge because my friends were doing it.

No, seriously! That's what I did!

My mom took me, Kyla, and the EGE to Esker Point Beach. It was amazingly fun!! We sat on the EGE's "Thomas the Tank Engine" blanket and had a nice lunch, built a causeway out of rocks (well, the EGE built it, me and Kyla just threw rocks), swam through this little channel, and most fun of all, we jumped off of the bridge over the channel!

This bridge carries Groton Long Point Road over the Esker Point channel. It's about an 11 foot drop into the channel (14 feet, if you're jumping from the ledge). When we saw some kids jump in, the EGE and I immediately wanted to try. So we climbed up onto the bridge and... well, jumped.

It was amazing! Normally, I hate being in free-fall, but this was just FUN! It was made even more hilarious by the fact that, right before I jumped, Kyla started whispering Edward's lines from "New Moon" to me. Wacky fun.

So, me and the EGE jumped off a bridge about a dozen or more times. We even got Kyla to jump once. Kyla and I both got horrendously sunburned and I sliced up my foot on some rocks, but all in all... It was an utterly AMAZING day. I can't wait to go bridge-jumping again! Next time I'll hopefully have Tang, Katherine, and mandachan to convince to jump with me! The EGE even had this funny idea of "let's convince passer-bys that one of us is a suicidal jumper and the other is trying to talk them down"

Lots of fun death-defying stuff!

And now I go to nurse my sunburn...

Not much doing...

Exactly what it says on the tin.

Just sitting around. In my pj's. Dad says there are no good movies playing. All my friends are busy.

Not doing anything for the the 4th of July, either. Blah.

It's why I haven't been posting recently. Haven't done anything of interest. Except for Thursday, which mandachan covered in her blog.

Had some odd dreams last night involving humanoid puppies, the 9th Doctor, and Taylor Lautner. Don't even ask. Last time I eat peaches after midnight...
