pretty soon, i will be an aunt. a real life, honest-to-goodness sister of a mother. now that thought will occupy my thoughts for awhile. plus, we will be moving. again. to a Chicken Farm. yup. three quarters of an acre with a house with FOUR regular bedrooms, a huge master bedroom, a living room, a recreational room, a kitchen (duh.) and a very nice bathroom that is actually able to prevail through a shower (the plumbing in the cabin all messed up. so far I've had to satisfy myself with...baths. it's just like bathing in your own sweat and grime. ugh.).
and a chicken coop! with about fifteen scruffy chickens, four cockatiels, and two budgies. and Jayda gets the latter six birds. that is an injustice. the budgies are sooo cute! one is bright blue and the other is lime green. i wanted to name them Blue and Lime. but Jayda will probably name them something stupid. she's no good with names. when i am.she rejected my idea for her fish to be named Keiko (meaning lucky in Japanese) and named the darn thing Sam. it looks exotic (like a peacock!) but she chooses a name she has  heard in a story about a dog.
plus, Ammon is mad at me for not returning is emails which i never got. that is also an injustice. so he didn't friend me on facebook. and that ticks me off.
anyway, that's all the news from me!

catch up

wow do i ever have a lot to tell you. i went to a dance and met one of my friend's cousin. his name is Ammon, he's Hawaiian, and he has blue braces! and he likes lighting stuff on fire. that is cool. my other friend's mom, Liz, completely embarrassed Ammon in front of everyone at the dance. she took the mike, called Ammon up to the front, and told everyone Ammon had been rejected three times by three different girls that night!!! sadly, it was true. while me and Liz's son Brandon were trying to make Ammon feel better, Liz and Ammon's aunt Kirsten rallied up a flock of girls to crowd around Ammon and try to get him to dance with them. when i saw him again he was looking distressed and was drinking water in the kitchen. i really didn't want to make him feel bad, so i told him that he and i were dancing. he could choose the song, but we were dancing. then we left the kitchen coincidentally, right when a slow song was playing, so we danced. and i gave him my e-mail. and now he has a good memory from that really suckish dance.
the dance really did suck. the deejay did not do a good job at picking songs, the snacks were, well, not the greatest, and there was hardly anyone there. and it was in Duncan. and the Moore boys weren't there. so, yeah. the dance sucked.but i made a new friend! the one good thing about that night!

blue braces rule!

and salt spring is in charge of the october dance. we are planning to make it a Harry Potter themed one. it will be awesome and i am going as Luna Lovegood! i plan to dye my hair a light blond for it. did you know my hair is now almost brown?!? yikes!

what happened today

yesterday i went to a sleepover and we played truth or dare, and... they found out. i really didn't want to answer when they "truthed" me to tell if i had kissed a guy. maybe that would have been a good time to practice acting, but, stupid as i am, i ducked down to avoid answering and whimpered. (earlier i had been dared to make animal noises so when i whimpered, Keeshana asked "what animal was that?" my response; "i don't know, but it's endangered.:(" so... yeah.) i was freaked out. i didn't know what to do.(a first, since i almost always have at least one idea on what to do) i was thinking; "oh, gosh! this is bad!" but, of course, since i had to answer truthfully, i admitted. (sorry, "patty"!) (you know who you are)
anyway, i was going to work on a project with a friend at his house, but he was to tired to have anyone over yesterday, and his little brother had a sleepover  the next day, Keeshana was dared to draw all over my face, and i had to go the whole day with it on my face. i was trying to act as the tough, careless older sister at my sister's ballet dress rehursal with drawings that look kind of like war paint, with a girly design on my left temple. try being cool with a face like that. not easy, even for a great actress like me. currently, i am watching the second game of the Stanley Cup Finals (Vancouver Canucks vs Boston Bruins ) score; Vancouver: 1 Boston: 2. at least the Canucks made it to the Stanley Cup, and the Oilers didn't. in case you were wondering, the Oilers are the team that my friend's friend supports. all well, sucks 2 B u Rory, when the Canucks win the Cup and are on to the Winter Olympics. i will never let him live it down!!!!!! >:) (evil smiley face!) (never mind.)
anyway, Kevin Bieska just got hurt. not good.
okay... new update.................................................................................
WE WON!!! eleven seconds into overtime by Burrows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! we rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

and, boy, am i excited. but, i forgot 2 tell you about youth conference. it was a blast. i beat my record at number of boys i danced with. at my 1st dance, 3 guys. 2nd dance, 3 guys. 3rd dance, 6 GUYS!!! and the latest dance, one guy, and that was only because i found his shoe. i would have danced with two guys, but the one who really wanted to dance with me got asked by a girl before he could get to me. i think that's really nice, especially after the dance he gave me a daffodil from the vase on the table where we were sitting at. i have kept the flower, but now it's all dried up:( . he said something i will never forget as we were staring at the flower. it was a comment on the flower, but it was more directed at me than anything else. he said: "the cool thing about this flower is that it doesn't have to try to be pretty, it just is." meaning that he was saying i don't have to do anything about myself to make me pretty, because i already are pretty. now you are probably think i am not being realistic, right? but, it makes perfect sense when i add on my own comment before his. i said "i wish i could be like this flower, you know, pretty, and flawless." well, now it makes sense, doesn't it?
any way, on to san francisco. i will be eating at the hard rock cafe, and i will be spending a whole day in santa cruz. (yipee!) and i will be preforming a solo (fireflies by owl city) at the golden gate park (and in various elementary schools.) and i will be seeing a CATS performance (more luck!!!) and, boy i can't wait! i'll update you guys when i get back next week.

science conference

the science conference was a blast. i was able to listen to some lectures on biodiversity and i was able to take my own DNA sample (and i don't think carrying it around in your purse is normal) and, during a game of truth or dare (this was totally a dare) a boy had to kiss my cheek. and, although i was soooo against it, a dare's a dare, and he did it. i still don't think i got all the germs off my cheek.
on another note, youth conference was this weekend, and there were two dances, one every night. the first one i danced with six guys (one of whom i like and another was a good friend) and the other one i danced with one guy (my crush) and that was only because i got his shoe. (boys were to take off one shoe and put it in the middle of the dance floor and the girls grab a shoe and whoever it belongs to, that's who you dance with, so i got to dance with my crush.) i picked up a sneaker thinking; good, a sneaker. cool boys wear sneakers. wait this is ______'s shoe. oh, great. :) happy me. after the dance i was staring at a daffodil that was in a vase on the table i was sitting at and my friend came and sat down next to me and said "the cool thing about this flower is that it doesn't have to try to be pretty." right before megan came and said we had to go. my friend (i will exclude from saying HIS name in the unlikely event HE should read it and yes, he's a boy.) pulled the flower out of the vase and handed it to me with a smile that was clear evidence that he liked me. and now i'm getting mixed emotions because i like the-guy-who's-name-i-blanked-out, but i also like another guy from my class, but now i'm developing feelings for my friend that are sort of strange, like, not a crush type feeling, but a weird sensation that with every fiber in your body wants to just stay friends, but you know, deep inside you, that you really want to be more than just friends. it's weird.

i can't manage my time!!!!!

for some reason, all of my engagements have overlapped. my science conference (Thursday all day) is on the same day as my first coast guard meeting (Thursday night), and i will miss the first session of my youth conference (Thursday night). i am so overbooked!!!!! how could i miss that i had the coast guard on the same night that i had the science conference when i had been planning for it for way longer than i had the coast guard meeting. it sucks!!!! i want to go to all three, but they overlap so i can't do it all =(

quick test, can you say all of the shows i can possibly think of (listed below) in one breath? i can ('t). can you?

my not-so-new interest

i am absolutely insane about Harry Potter. i know almost everything about it, and have read every book at least five times each. my favorite book is the Deathly Hallows, and my favorite movie is the Chamber of Secrets. i am absolutely going insane. i can't wait until the middle of July to see Part 2 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and if i have to wait, i'm going to E-X-P-L-O-D-E!!!!!!!!!! IT WILL BE TORTURE!!!!!!
on second thought, IT IS TORTURE!!!! =(   (EXTREME SAD FACE) is there anyone else out there that is waiting for the second part of the Deathly Hallows? because i think that it should come out about this time instead of in six months from the debut of the first part, because people would have forgotten what happened in the first half of the movie!!!! (i think that sucks) only if they read the book (which i am currently reading for the tenth time) would they remember the first part of the movie (except for the fact that the movies are always different from the books and thats what makes them always cool to watch even if you've read the books a zillion times). so, my point being, that they should bring the second part out about four months after the first one is shown in theaters, that gives people enough time to see the first one all they want, then they can see the second one and everyone's happy.

BIG NEWS!!!!!!

dad just told me and i start on Thursday!! (well, he told me a few hours ago)
on my last blog, i said i was obsessed with killer whales, well, now i am watching Free Willy 2: the adventure home. before, i watched Free Willy, Free Willy 3: the rescue. i love killer whales!!!! especially Keiko, the whale who played Willy. i'm really sad that Keiko died in 2002. it was really upsetting. he was so cool. there is a neat marking where he was buried. i think that is so cool. anyway, i am still obsessed with killer whales and love anything to do with them.

killer whales

i am doing a project on killer whales for science and i might be able to go on a whale watch tour and see the magnificent creatures for my self. i am also doing a 1 minute blurb on killer whales for an assembly in two weeks. i love killer whales!!! did you know, that their original name meant "demon dolphin"? interesting. anyway, got 2 go!

daddy's doing a bike workshop!

that's right! dad is teaching the kids from MY SEEC about bikes and teaching them how to fix their bikes so we can be all ready for the biking trip next Wednesday, where we're going to Beddis Beach for the day. so far, he has taught my class about how to adjust their seat, and how to take care of their chains. it was very fun for me because i got to help my class mates with their bikes, and, after the workshop, i helped the kids lift their bikes up the stairs (i especially liked that part, because i got to show off my 'immense' strength : ) before the other class came in for their turn on the workshop.

a story of my life (because i want to write, but don't have anything to write on)

well, where do i begin? i was born i medicine hat, and, before i was born, i was pre-adopted. so, two days after i was born, i was handed over to Lorraine and Richard Cullis. after they picked me up from the hospital, they went to Pizza Hut for dinner (and i have never been to Pizza Hut since.). we lived in Calgary for a year, while mom ran a daycare and dad was a principal. after Calgary came Plamondon. we were there until i was four. but, just before we moved, we added onto the family (as if i wasn't enough)and-lo and behold-we got Jayda, a little African-American new born girl with one flaw. she was VERY sick, and i mean sick. With a disease that only occurs in 1 in every 500, 000 people, which had scientists flown from every part of Canada and the U.S.A. to study her. she was nearly dead, when a miracle happened, and she recovered so well, the doctors claimed she never even had it, although there was clear evidence that she had had it before. Anyway, back to my story. after Plamondon we moved to this tiny place called Uliac Beach in northern Alberta, where i lived in a mobile home, found my first cat, bought a border collie and named him Rex, started school, my cat (named Nemo) had kittens, gave one of the 3 remaining kittens to my friend Sianna (one died under my bed and we didn't find it until we moved again, two years later), named the kittens Rosie (i still have her to this day), Ginger (got ran over by a car when she was two, sadly) and Smokey (the one i gave away). i moved to Raymond just after after i was baptized, where i started 3rd grade. Jayda befriended a brat, caught on, and gave everyone except our parents (she acted like an angel around them) a lot of attitude. (she still is giving me attitude)
   Wow, did i ever get off topic. after Raymond came Pincher Creek where i joined a baseball team that won gold in the district tournaments, went to my first girls camp with the girls from my ward and had a room that made up a whole floor in our house (it was the top floor and it had a balcony (smiley face!!!!!:)) and that concludes my summary of my life in Pincher Creek. after that, it was on to Saltspring Island where i lived on a boat, went to my first dance, danced with the guy i have a crush on, am about to go on a trip to san francisco and there is a western dance coming up in 2 weeks and i dare you to say this sentence in one breath. and thus concludes the summary of my life.

my sister, amy, and her husband sean, did the prank of the century. sean made it seem as though amy was pregnant with triplets! he totally freaked us out. he even had an ultra-scan picture to go along with it. his family immediately smelled a rat, and didn't believe it. us, on the other hand, believed every single detail.
i still feel used.
anyway, turns out, it was sean's sick idea of a joke. i was, above everyone, the most freaked out out of all the house-hold. i was (i am willing to admit) literally bouncing off the walls and screaming my lungs out. i hope your happy, sean. 'cuz i'm not, that's for dang sure.
Sean and Amy: :) Me: :( (get the picture?) i hope you do.

dolphin slaughter

the dolphin slaughter in japan is getting out of control. and petitions aren't going to do anything, no matter how many names are on it, unless it it from their own people. and the people of japan aren't doing anything about it. it actually seems they are okay with the slaughter of creatures almost as intelligent, and way less barbaric. and that's exactly what they are doing. acting like barbarians. they kill helpless creatures that have done nothing wrong to them. they are violating the laws of nature. you kill to eat. you don't kill for enjoyment. it is not a sport, although some people (and it is not just japan, some of our own citizens are doing it, i am sad to say) think killing is a joke. but it's not. it is a sick crime. the only way to stop japan killing dolphins is to move them out of harm's deadly reach. meaning transport as many as possible to another part of the globe. it will cost many millions of dollars to do so, but small contributions can do wonders. and what we do today changes tomorrow. maybe someday we can look forward to a clean, happy tomorrow, with no unnecessary kills or harms, and that we can all live (i know this sounds totally 60s, but it's true) in peace.
