Friday Fillins #20

1. When I'm sick I'm lying on the couch eating popsicles and watching movies (unless I have something where you even throw up popsicles--like what I had recently--then I'm sitting on the couch watching movies wishing I could eat popsicles--or even drink water, for that matter!)
2. When I take a walk, I think about nature.
3. Money can't buy happiness but it can be quite helpful.
4. Cotton makes me feel nothing strongly while and leather makes me feel thourouly sick.
5. The strangest person/character I've had lewd thoughts about was what the heck is a lewd thought? Is that something weird? I could us a definition, if anyone knows one.
6. My favorite color these days is blue because it's the most beautiful color in the world.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to maybe watching Eureka, tomorrow my plans include nothing and Sunday, I want to go swimming!

Aha! I have at last done my Friday Fillins on Friday! Hopeful I can keep this up for two weeks running...

Friday Fillins #19

Again, Friday Fillins on Sunday...

1. Dancing to music while while I clean makes me happier and more efficient (I think!).

2. The last time I was hugged by Brother1 I nearly died from joy.

3. When I drive it's in my dreams. I'm gonna have to wait to do it for real for another two or three years .

4. I saw a show with this dog standing in the middle of the road which caused them to crash (I really don't know what else I can fill in here...).

5. Give me a long, happy life, give me loads of family time, and give me a great week! (hopefully a healthy one!).

6. Next week I am looking forward to my birthday being even closer.

And I refuse to answer the seventh on Sunday. Gosh, I really need to remember to do this...

My B-day song from Rose and why I haven't been posting

Happy Birthday to thee,
You're going to be,
A big 1 and a big 3,
Happy Birthday to ye!!!

This song was so cute and made me smile so much I had to post it.

Anyway, why haven't I been posting?
Well, it started when Brother1 threw up, then Dear Sister started feeling sick, then Mommy threw up, then Daddy started getting sick, then Rosi my dearest sister threw up... anyway, I was the only healthy one and my whole family could barely stand on their two feet. The following night I'm sure wasn't quite as bad for me as them, but it was really, really, really bad for me. People needed so much of my help and I was so tired and my joints (I think that I've mentioned I've been having some awful joint pain since July 6th-ish, but I'm not certain) were killing me, but my wonderful family needed me so much... seeing them like that was awful for me. I felt like crying. It got so bad that Daddy decided to take Monday (the next day) off.

Poor Brother1 was in such pain that after he threw up in the bathroom, he didn't leave and ended up sleeping on the bathroom floor. No one else was much better.

I slept here and there as much as I could, but I didn't get to close my eyes for good until 6:00am. Seriously.

Anyway, to make matters worse, the next day I got sick. It was horrible. I thought I was going to die... I almost wanted to. I threw up a total of three times that day, and thank goodness that was it. On this day everyone was feeling at least a little better (besides me of course)... Brother1 was great, and was almost up to his old high spirits. Dear Sister was okay, Mommy was still bad, but better, and Daddy was pretty good, but still sick.

We weren't really completely well until today, and even today we suffer from after effects (especially Mommy). One really sad thing is that by sitting around being sick, my joints got extra stiff, and now that I can move again, they really really hurt! Even typing this post causes pain.

Well, there was Rose's cute song, and my excuse for not posting. Hopefully none of you had this horrible disease/food poisoning/what ever it is!!!

Friday Fillins #18

1. The last meal I had at a restaurant was a falafel.
2. Meat is something I intensely dislike.
3. The full moon is soooooooooooooooooooooo beautiful!
4. What the HECK?! is one of my favorite local expressions.
5. Sometimes it's best to give in. Sometimes..
6. I don't know! Oops, that sounds like a movie title doesn't it? *sigh*... is the best movie I've seen so far this year!
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to swimming(!), tomorrow my plans include waking up early and studying Latin with Dear Sis, and Sunday, I want to have fun!

Have a great weekend!


Learning Latin

A while ago Mommy bought some Latin books, and I finally opened one yesterday. It was geared towards homeschoolers like me, and it was very interesting, well done and fun! I really really enjoyed learning the words... they sounded so nice and fit all together, and it was really cool to see words like 'Agricola(sp?)' (which sounds to me a lot like agriculture) for Farmer, and 'Non' (with a little mark-y thing above the 'o', it sounds like 'no' with an 'n' at the end) for 'Not', and 'Poeta' for 'Poet'... you could really tell our language was somehow related.
Not only that, but the book was just plain fun! I loved the way the author did it, and I'm very excited about "Getting Started With Latin", both the book and actually doing it.

One annoying thing about Latin is that most words don't have to be in a specific order, so 'I am a sailor' or 'a sailor I am' mean the same thing, 'Nauta sum', and 'Sum nauta' ('sum' means 'I am', and nauta means 'sailor'). It was a relief reaching 'Non' though, as it actually has a rule: Place it before the verb!

And now, for my closing sentence, I would like to mention that I learned a rather famous saying in this forgotten tongue: Cogito(sp?) Ergo Sum!!! (I think, therefore I am)

My First Birthday is Coming Up!!!

Obviously I don't mean my first birthday, as I am quite apparently over the first year, what I do mean is my first birthday while I'm on blogger.

What am I going do for it? Well, I'm probably going to have a mostly family party, though I may have a couple friends over. I'm probably going to watch movies, play board games, go swimming, eat junk food (though I have no intentions of "taking a break" from my Vegan diet) and open some presents from Dear Sister, and a few other peoples...

Anyway, my birthday is on September 7th... I always thought that was a very beautiful sounding date, I mean, sept, ember, sev, enth... it sounds like some sort of elven tongue. Not only that, but September means seven! It turns out September used to be the seventh month, but then someone added others in, so now it's not in the right spot. Anyway, the intersting thing is that my birthday date translates to Seven Seventh!

Well, I guess that's it! I just thought I'd post about my excitment for my 13th Birthday!


P.S. And how could I forget? I'm going to have lots of coconut... lots and lots of coconut!

The Evil Mailman

Dear Sister had just arrived home from checking the mail and we were talking about it when Brother1 says:

"Is the Mailman a Bad Guy?"

"No," I reply, "Why would you say that?"

"Then why does he try to steal our mail?"

I laughed and laughed...

Another Music Video

I had so much fun doing the last one (please read previous post) that I decided to do another! This one was much harder than the last one since in order to do make my vision of 'Hey Baby' I needed bunches of sims, and it was really hard to get them to do what I wanted.

Eventually, I got the video to look pretty good and I showed it to my fam. Dear Sister and Mommy liked it, but Daddy not so much. He did like the 'DJ' parts (which I thought were really cool myself) and a couple other points though. Well, I hope you like this! Enjoy!

Do comment what you think, if you can!

My First Music Video and Movie Editing

Hey All!!!

I'm a Simadict, as you probably know if you regularly read my blog, and last night I was listening to one of Lisa Loeb's songs-- "Do You Sleep?" from her album "Tails", and you probably know that too, if you read my blog regularly.

Anyway, I thought it would be cool to make a Music Video for it with the Sims, so I listened to that song and thought about what I would do, and this morning I built the sets on the 'house building' mode, I made the Sims I was going to use in the film in 'family mode', and shot the necessary scenes. It was a lot of fun.

After that was done I opened up 'Windows Movie Maker' and edited the scenes... cutting, arranging, music coordinating.... that was even more fun than the filming! When I was finally done I hit the button to make it a movie on our computer, and it CRASHED!!! Thankfully, there was an auto save shortly before then, so it wasn't too much of a loss.

Well, here it is, the finished product! My favorite part of making it was the movie editing, though the crash was REALLY annoying!

Hope you enjoy!

Friday Fillins #16

There you go. That's how pathetic I am. Well, here's my Friday Fillins on Sunday. Enjoy! (if you want to do your own, look for the link on my side-bar)

1. If I could travel back in time, I'd go to to the past and talk to my grandfather.
2. Give me a home-made hazelnut smoothie or give me She Spies/Earth 2! (or both!!!)
3. I am listening to my MP3 player--now that I found it. (with songs by Lisa Loeb--she is SOOOOO awesome!!!!!!!--as well as Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Thanks for the Memories, Head Over Feet, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (my dad's favorite line was always: "When the workin' day is done, girls just wanna have fun"), Paralyzer, stuff from the Phantom of the Opera...).
4. Somewhere, someone is thinking I have the best life ever, and that would be me.
5. I'll always be happy, because I'll never be alone, because I have the best family ever, and I can always turn to them no matter what happens.
6. My idea of a good time includes bunches of laughter, loud music (usually, not always), board games, movies, friends/family...

I'm skipping #7 this week. It's hard to answer that one on Sunday!
