France

On my trip to France I had a wonderful time! Okay so I didn’t really go to France or London or England, but my sister Mary did with her husband Tim. Tim blogged about all the places they went, so I thought I might as well blog about it too since we are on our way to Chicago to pick them up from the airport. All the places they went sounded like loads of fun, and I would love to go on a similar endeavor if I didn’t have to fly for 12 hours to get there. The only reason I am writing this blog right now is because I am stuck in a lousy car driving to a lousy city sitting next to a lousy friend. His name is Garry, he has a blog to at: http://www.G-is-me.blogspot.com. He never updates it thought so I highly recommend that you DON’T read it. Anyways the car is pretty quiet.. REALLY quiet in fact. Nobody is talking at all. The radio isn’t even on. Both of my parents are listening to audio books so they can’t talk and focus on that at the same time. Garry is just reading this as I type. Hi Garry….. he is getting kind of board I guess. He is getting his iPod and headphones out. I assume to listen to music.

I haven’t blogged for a couple of weeks so I decided to do it now since I’ve got some free time and not much better to do. I have been meaning to write a blog about the trees that fell down in my backyard but I need to put pictures in that. I don’t currently have access to the pictures thought because I don’t have internet and they are on The Facebook.

I only have talked to Mary once since she and Tim went on this trip to a foreign land. Tim write several blogs about the trip so I have still heard quite a bit of their adventures and the visits they have had with friends from over-seas. You could read Tim's blogs is you would like at http://www.frimtanklin.blogspot.com. They are a little on the long side though and there is a blog for each country so only read it if you have plenty of time. But please read it they are funny and they tell everything about the trip.

I only know one of the people that Mary and Tim met up with on this trip. Her name is Kristie. She is from Germany, and she came to America a few years back as a foreign exchange student. She lived with my family for a while and we grew to know her pretty well. I was probably only about 7 or 8 at the time but I remember the experience well. I loved the German chocolate she brought with her! Kristie is really nice and her and Mary have been friends since they met. Since they still talk every now and then Mary and Tim stayed with Kristie for the time that they were in Germany. It is really great and helpful that they got to stay there. It saved them a lot of money and I’m sure they loved seeing Kristie again.

My mother just turned on the radio and The Beatles are playing Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da so I’m too distracted to keep writing this right now so I’m going to end it here. It seems plenty long enough to publish as soon as I get a decent internet connection.

All About the Party

Whelp here it goes. The first blog that I have done in months. Lets talk about yesterday, the 15th of June. It was my birthday and I was planning on having a great party but everything went down hill the moment I woke up. It was raining and 3 people had already texted me saying they couldn’t come. All of them were for different reasons. now there were only going to be about 4 people able to come total. But it was too late to postpone…Okay all of that is a lie. The true story is that it rained all night long but by the time I woke up it was fairly nice outside. Most of the people that I invited could still come, it would turn out to be a total of about 10 people. We all had fun. We didn’t do too many specific activities. I didn’t plan much at all for this party. We had a fire, we jumped on a trampoline, but for the most part we just hung out. A little bit later in the night *insert name here* sprained *insert gender here* ankle awfully badly. But everyone still managed to have a good time. The girls left at 11:30 like planned and all the guys transported to my bedroom where we did not much just a little bit of computer stuff. My mom then made us go to the basement where we made some prank calls to places like McDonalds. In one call that I made I tried getting the manager to fill out a job application for me over the phone. I said that I would pay her if she did it but she refused. After a few minutes I called back and talked to her for another 10 minutes about how to fill out an application online. The conversation didn’t amount to much after that and she finally had to leave. After a few more calls some of my friends went to sleep, but a few of us didn’t. I did some miscellaneous computer stuff with Noel and we didn’t fall asleep until 10 AM the next morning. I slept for a couple hours and a few people started leaving so I got up and shortly after the remains of my friends followed. We ate breakfast and moped around my dining room just waiting until the departure of each individual. I was getting bored so I started writing this blog because I realized that I haven't updated this site in ages. I would have been terminated from Blogger due to  lack of activity if that were possible. I don’t have too many plans for after my friends all leave I just have to shower and clean the house then I might go to noels house… That pretty much sums up today and yesterday and I’m getting tired so I’m going to finish up here with a bang. *BANG!*
