The Dark Crystal and Snickerdoodle Cookies

Once upon a time, before we were vegan, Dear Sister and I were watching a movie called the 'Dark Crystal', we were very little and LOVED it. While we were watching it, we were eating non-vegan snickerdoodle cookies, since then, whenever we think of snickerdoodles, we think of the 'Dark Crystal' and vise versa. We watched it two other times and still loved it, we were still young.

Now I made these Vegan Snickerdoodles and we watched the Dark Crystal. It was really bad. But we still loved it because of the wonderful child memories of it (not that we aren't still children now). So weird.


Back to Ballet

Yesterday I was able to go to ballet because I'm no longer sick (hallelujah!!!). You can still see some of my pox marks (especially on my legs) but they've all scabbed over. I can't wait until they all go away and I don't have to see these AWFUL spots all over me! Tomorrow is gym day and me and Rose (Dear Sister's blogger name) have big plans. I'm so excited about seeing all my friends again! I hope they'll all be there.

Really Not Fair

Yeah, I'm sick too. I just got over chicken pox, I'm even still covered in scabs (those are SO hard not to pick at), and yet I got sick again.

Thanks Giving was AWESOME though, so that made up for it. We all hanged out and ate DELICIOUS food. Then we played Pictionary. There are only two things I'd like to change about it: I'd make us all NOT sick, and that we could find the recipe that we've been looking forwards to all year: Pumpkin Cinnabons. Other than that our Thanks Giving was great. We still have leftovers, but I don't think they're going to last much longer.

We got a new faucet and filter, Daddy is installing it right now. It's pretty cool. I can't wait to ust it!

That's it for now. Happy Late Thanks Giving!

Life Is Fun, But NOT Fair

Rose (dear sister's blogger name) is sick. Again. She just had chicken pox, can't she have a break!? Brother1 is sick to. He just had chicken pox.


I'm not sick (well, I'm at the very tail end of chicken pox); yet. I just wish we could all be healthy. Oh well. I hope after this we'll all be healthy for eight years. That would be fair. But life just ain't fair. And that's not fair. 'Fair'... a strange word that we all want, yet is impossible to get. So sad.

Anyway, tomorrow is Thanks Giving! It won't be to big, my Grandmother (we all call her Nana ['na', like in 'tall', not like in 'nanny', then 'uh', like in 'what?']) and her boyfriend Don will be coming, but that's all. It will be fun. We'll hang out and eat delicious food. Mommy and I are going to start Thanks Giving dinner today, if we don't, it won't be done until the day after tomorrow. We need to make the Tofurky, Stuffing, Pumpkin Pie, Gravy, Nut Loaf, Cream Cheese Frosting (for the Pumpkin Cinnabons, see the 'Thanks Giving Menu' post), and Whipped Cream (for the pie).

Well, there are some reasons why life isn't fair. But it is fun.

Kings Of Darkness: (the attack on Rariila)

Here's some of Kings Of Darkness (right now May--form our world--is stuck in the magical land of Glorsifil, she and the rest of the Rebels are trying to evacuate Rariila--a small town--before the evil King Ronan comes to kill all of them because they are the Rebels allies, Gloria, a ghost, can make people appear in different locations, in this case she's trying to get all of the women and children to the Rebel Base)

“I think that’s everyone, did we miss anyone, Ghedric?” Darren said to a tall dark man. Ghedric seemed to be 20, he had black thick hair that looked untamed. His eyes were brown, he didn’t look to happy.
“No, I think we are ready to leave… Will Gloria be able to get all the woman and children out before long?” Ghedric said uneasily.
“She already has two thirds… Yes, I think so…” Fred said.
“Think? Think!? We don’t have time to think! This is their lives we have at stake! Their lives!!! Maybe we should take some of them with us!” said a man in the crowd.
“You know we hardly have enough horses for all of us; the sick can barely keep their heads up, let alone ride a steed, the children must stay with their mothers, besides, all of them will be there before us, even if they leave later,” countered Fred.
“That is the problem! They will leave later!”
“There is nothing we can do… We are trying our best! I understand your fear more than you think… But we must leave if we are to live… Ronan will attack soon,” Darren said this sympathetically yet commandingly.
“Very well, but if one of my family-or anyone’s for that matter-is missing!” the man did not finish his threat.
“They will be there.”
“Darren!” May called, giving the appearance of just arriving.
“Hello May!” he answered. “Ghedric, this is May,”—Ghedric dipped his head in greeting—“and May, this is my good friend—and Fredrick’s cozen—Ghedric, leader of Rariila.”
“Pleasure,” said May.
“Of course,” he said.
“May, we best be going,” said Fred. “We have to back at base by the time Ronan attacks.”
“Alright… I guess I have to get back on one of those things?” she said gesturing to the horses.
“Yes, you do,” said Darren as he swung on one.
“You don’t like horses?” asked Ghedric
“No, I can’t stand them… they just… they're so big… I feel like if I get on one I’ll-I’ll fall to my death… Crazy, right?”
“No, not crazy at all, I feel the same way. You just have to train yourself to forget. I always thought I was the only one in the world!”
“Yeah, me too. All the rest of my family loved… Never mind… Let’s get out of here, time is of the essence.”
Darren looked down at May. He hadn’t known her for that long, but he could tell that she was very sad. He knew why… it was hard to lose ones family… He knew that very well. He reached down a hand to her.
“Come on May, let’s go home…”
May took his hand and clambered up without much difficulty.
May looked behind herself, she saw a man with a bloody face riding towards them.
“You heard him!” Darren yelled. “Gloria, do we have everyone!?”
“NO!!! I need ten minutes!” she said panicked.
Darren turned to the man.
“Forest, how long?!”
“We need to slow them down!”
People started disappearing at an astonishing rate.
May’s mind raced. She had to think of something.
We are in no way ready to fight… May remembered the Ma’Ge’s words…
“Can the women ride horses?”
“What?!” said Fred and Darren.
“Why don’t we switch!? I’m sure we can hold them off long enough for Gloria to get us out! I don’t see why the women here can’t ride horses. Unless they're all like me, that is.”
“What?” said Fred and Darren; such a thing had never occurred to them.
“It seems like it could work,” said Ghedric smiling. “We have to hurry. Darren, you and Fred get the women to the horses, there are less of them than us now, they should be able to take the children with them… it’s risky, but less than leaving them in the thick of battle… I’m sure we could tie the children on so they wouldn’t fall… What are you waiting for?!! We don’t have time!”

So, here's my story. If you have any questions about this segment, please tell me. I won't give you any more. No matter how much you beg. Seriously.

What do you think?

Operation Get Galaxy Up and more

This morning I wouldn't get up, so Dear Sister and Brother2 came in on 'operation get Galaxy up' and then they came in! They took my blanket, they took my pillow, they took my gigantic extra soft doggy, and then they tickled me; I got up. (sigh) I love them so much... I'm so lucky to have THREE siblings... Big family=big fun.

Brother2 is doing pretty bad. Mommy didn't get any sleep last night. It's not fair that a baby could get Chicken Pox... it just isn't! Hopefully I'll be able to go to ballet tomorrow, if I get past the contagious point by then. If not I will definitely go Wednesday.

I made breakfast today with Dear Sister's help. She made the Oat Meal and I made the Biscuits (she helped a little with the biscuits too), she set the table and I cleaned up the mess. The food looked so nice on our new plates (see post below)!

The one and only,

New Corelle Dishes

We have a new pasta bowl, a luncheon plate (I didn't take a picture of that plate because it looks just like the dinner plate only a little bit smaller), a dinner plate, a mini desert bowl, and a large bowl (I didn't take a picture of the large bowl because it looks just like the desert bowl only bigger). They all look SO gorgeous.

Desert Bowl:
(the large bowl looks just like this only large)
Dinner Plate:
( luncheon plate just like this only smaller,
note the ruffled edge)

Pasta Bowl:
(it's harder to see, but it has ruffled edges too)
We LOVE our new matching dishes! You don't know what it's like having beautiful dishes that match after having lame dishes for years!!! We all worked REALLY hard and picked these ones out. We are so happy!
What do you think?

Now that I'm done raving about showers (see post below) I can give you an update:

Kings Of Darkness: I haven't really worked on it that much... I just have had the worst headache...
Poor Poor Baby: Brother2 has chicken pox! He isn't even a year old! It isn't fair!
Dear Sister: Dear Sister is doing a lot better than I did... I had at least 1000 spots--easily. Want a picture? No, you don't.

Well, that's about all I have to update you to. I really haven't been up to much. We did watch Shrek the Third and enjoyed it, but it had a REALLY cheesy ending--and I mean REALLY cheesy. I finished the Rolling Stones by Robert Heinlein and enjoyed it, though I prefer fantasies and this book didn't really impress me. Mommy is reading Dear Sister and I the Rowan of Rin series by Emily Rodda. Now THOSE are good books. I LOVE Emily Rodda!!! I've already read the series a long time ago, but Dear Sister hasn't heard it and me and mommy love it so much that we are--she is, I mean--reading it to her.

Once upon a time I read five books out loud to Dear Sister, they were the Spiderwick books. We loved them. Now they're making a MOVIE about them! We are SO going to see it! It comes out February next year. I'll be counting the days.

Feeling a bit better,


Chicken Pox = Itch+Shower = No itch = heaven!!!

For all of you who have chicken pox, it's awful. Really really awful. You'll itch all day, you'll pull your hair out, you'll have the worst headache, but you have one escape!!! Take a shower. Turn the heat so hot that it almost burns you, as hot as you can possibly stand. You'll feel like your scratching! I'm serious! Daddy recommended this to me and since than I've been taking at least two showers a day, it's like you've stepped into heaven! I was sceptical at first. Then I took a shower. Then I wasn't. I tell you, take a hot, hot, HOT shower. You'll be glad you did.

Attack of the Chicken

Guess who got chicken pox?


It started as a bazillion 'bug bites', then I had this AWFUL headache, then I had the pox! I even had the vaccine and that didn't help at all... I just wish I was healthy. I have these awful pox marks and they itch like crazy! I feel like a vampire (the light hurts my eyes) and I'm really queasy. Dear Sister has it really bad, but it is her second day. Today is only my first. I don't want to miss gym day!!! I don't want to miss ballet!!! Oh well... I'll just have to wait 'til I get better. I hope it will be soon.


Chicken Pox Again

So my sister has the Pox, Brother1 had it really bad not to long ago, it was so sad! All he did was lie on the couch saying: "ow... ow... ow..." my heart broke! Now Dear Sister is suffering the same fate! I can't stand it! I've had the vaccine, so I won't get the Pox (fingers crossed). We won't be able to make it to Gym Day, which really rots because I've really been looking forwards to it for a whole week!!! Dear Sister and I had big plans... I don't know what we're going to do about ballet, but daddy is most likely going to take me. I wish we could all just be healthy... Oh well...

Harpy, NOT Blackbird

Here's my Halloween costume, I know it's late but I just figured out how to put pictures in my Blog and it's such a cool costume!!! What do you think? The only annoying thing about it was that everyone thought I was a bird... And the claws... Oh I hated the claws!!!

Princess Angelica

I'm also writing a musical called Princess Angelica. I've been working on it for years and I'm finally happy with it! I just need a good cast... Here's the list of the charractors.

Princess Angelica
Judge Mod
Lead Girl Villager
Angelica’s Mother
Little Angelica
Good Side Of King
Bad Side Of King
Girl Villagers
Boy Villagers/Wolves

It's got some pretty cool songs in it! I really want to perform it, I'd be the director of course! My favorite song in it is 'I Wanna Break Free', I also like 'Angelica'. The rest are good and dandy, just not as wonderful as those two... I haven't done much with Kings of Darkness since I made it a quarter of the way through. Once I finish it I'll tell you.

Kings of Darkness/Thanks Giving


I'm a quarter of the way through Kings Of Darkness! Page #50! (I plan to make it 200 pages) I'm so excited!!! I love my story! I can't wait 'til it's done!!! I've got to go to ballet soon, so I can't post much. Trevor is as cute as always and I can't wait until Thanks Giving! We're going to make tofurky!

We might invite two of Dear Sister's and my friends and their parents to our house for Thanks Giving, as far as we know, they don't have any family around and we owe them, they had us over for movies a while ago! It would be SOOO fun! We'd love to show them a vegan Thanks Giving!!! I hope they can... I better get going... Thanks for reading!
