Couple A' Things...Hehe...

SCM (look at previous post for info) is complete. The necklaces are wrapped and hidden in my backpack. Hopefully my mom doesn't plan on any surprise backpack inspections. They wont move out of my backpack until my family arrives and the stockings (we use the one- piece 30's underwear with the flap in the back, for what reason, I have no clue.) start getting filled up. Keep your fingers crossed for me!


Speaking of my family...they're coming this Sunday. I'll be on Wizard101 A LOT less. However, they're only staying till December 26th. So, don't expect to see me on except for early in the morning and late a night when I can sneak my lap top up to my room and play under my blankets.


Anyone heard of NaNoWriMo? It stands for National Novel Writing Month. It takes place every November when people set their goal of words (usually 50,000) to write during that month. Our English teacher brought it up during class and held a competition for highest word count. I came in first place with 15,006 and six. The top three got a special prize (I'll show you in a second) and anyone who got to 1,000 words would get three homework passes. OK, so, my special prize (drum roll please).....................................................

So, while you're turning your head and/or computer sideways to see that awesome custom-made T-Shirt, keep in mind that only three people in the world have it. I am one of them.

Alright, that's all I got.

I Have a Secret Christmas Mission

Yes. Secret Christmas Mission. SCM for short. Do you think it's a coincidence that it sounds like scum when you say it? I love Christmas. Especially on even years. Because my family from Colorado (remember them from the last post?) come every other year. (200, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, ect.) So, back to SCM. My math teacher, Mrs. G (her last name is hard to pronounce/spell) makes these cool necklaces for 4$ each that you can personalize. You send her the picture you want, or, if it's a common one, you tell her which one you want, and she makes one for you. I decided to get some for my mom, dad, aunt, uncle, and two cousins. It's not as easy as you'd think. See, I don't want my parents to even know I'm getting them present, so I have to do it all secretly. Here's my plan.

  • Email Mrs. G with the links for the pictures I want

  • Give her the 24$ it cost for six of them

  • Get the wrapping paper from Jen, who's sleeping over Saturday

  • Get the necklaces from Mrs. G on Monday (hopefully)

  • Sneak them home in my backpack

  • Hide them somewhere I'll remember until I can wrap them

  • Wrap them without my parents finding me (probably at night)

  • Hide them until the stockings start getting full with presents

  • Wait for everyone to find them in their stockings Christmas morning

Yup. That's the SMC. It's not gonna be easy. Besides, my mom got a little suspicious when I started asking about Mrs. G's email, and where my aunt's favorite place to travel is. (it ended up not having anything to do with Mexico. Whatever.)

My uncle got the iTunes logo, (he loves iTunes) one cousin got a picture of Bob Marley, (he loves Bob Marley) the other cousin got a peace sign, (she has a tattoo of one) my mom got a flamingo (likes flamingos, yea, I don't get it either) my dad got a soccer ball, (he LOVES soccer) and my aunt got a Kokpelli guy. (she loves Kokopelli)

I realize most of you don't know what a Kokopelli is.

That's Kokopelli. He's a cool little guy, huh? Okay, well, wish me luck!
