Yep. This weekend was completely awesome, starting with Wednesday evening. Actually, Wednesday 5th hour even...yeah yeah, I know, that's not technically part of the weekend, but still. It was the start of all the fun. Bry and I were ridiculously goofy, I'm still trying to figure out why. I know I was in a childish mood, so that helped things. So we just goofed around all class, which was okay since we didn't do anything anyway.
Wednesday evening was the ecumenical service at my church, which I enjoyed (and actually wasn't bored, which is a plus). And afterwards I was hanging out with Roger, Teresa, Steph, Anna, and Ian, in various combinations, for about an hour, which led to much hilarity and hyperness. Ian must come to my Christmas party. He needs to meet more of my friends. We frightened his mother a bit, actually...because apparently me, Anna, and Eric are all a lot like Ian (which was brought up by my mentioning that Jonathan is a lot like Ian, which is frightening enough in itself). And we decided that part of the reason Teresa is as goofy as she is is because she babysat Ian a couple times when he was younger.
Thursday was Thanksgiving, obviously. We went over to my grandparents' house. A bunch of my dad's cousins were there, and mercifully, the Michalek kids were there too. So I was saved from being totally bored for most of the time, though the Michaleks left about an hour and a half before we did, so I retreated upstairs with my book, music, and brother, and we hid from the boringness of the relatives.
Thursday night after we got home, we decided we'd play a game of Monopoly, which we haven't done in ages. Rachel played for like the first time...it was interesting. Very quickly, we decided that God was laughing at us, though. Rachel landed on Free Parking (and got lots of money for it...yeah, I know it's not in the real rules, but still. whatever) three times in a row, which was ridiculous. We figured it was beginner's luck or something. And then Dad, who was the richest player in the game, landed on it three times in a row. So we decided God was laughing at us. The other time it was creepy was when Eric rolled doubles and landed on the "Go to Jail" space, rolled doubles immediately and got out, and then his very next roll was doubles again, sending him straight back into jail. Anyway, Mum lost really quickly, and when she did, Dad and Rachel were really rich, and Eric and I were kinda just...middle-class, I guess. So I proposed a business partnership with Eric, which we thought was a great idea until Dad and Rachel teamed up against us. For a while it was going kinda badly for us, but then somehow we managed to get hotels on all of our properties and send Dad and Rachel into bankruptcy. I guess the whole point of this gigantic description is, that's the first time I've ever played a game of Monopoly to its end, and we had fun doing it.
Friday, Laura came over so we could "work on our Civil War project." Translation: we worked for about an hour, then goofed off the rest of the time. Bryant came over for a while and hung out (he brought candy, I might add...), so that was really awesome (and, coincidentally, I had just put up the mistletoe a couple hours before...). Laura and I went shopping in the evening for Christmas gifts...it was fun just having some girl time for once.
Friday was also awesome for one gigantic reason...I got a letter from UM/F saying that I got the full-ride scholarship! The gigantic one that even has a $600/year book allowance. So I'm super-happy about that, since it means that I may actually be able to move out of my parents' house before I graduate from college. And I might even have a car too.
Saturday...heck, I can't even remember what I did most of Saturday. I did housework in the morning, then there's a couple hours in the afternoon where I don't remember at all what I did. In the evening, I went over to Bry's house for a while (Rob and Laura called us, oddly enough...they are stalking us, I swear) and then we went to see "National Treasure." Good movie. I highly recommend it. Especially if you like Indiana Jones, because it's got that sort of feel to it.
Sunday was kinda like a normal Sunday, really. I went to church, out to dinner with my family, then came home and did a bit of housework and some homework. Then I got kinda bored, so I went over to Bry's house again. He and Craig were playing Halo, so I just watched over their shoulders for a while.
Yeah. All in all, a pretty good weekend. And yes, I am done typing now.
