Christmas Trees...

Well I like Christmas trees 'n I get a new ornament to put on mine every year.  My favorite's a Santa that goes at the way bottom, least on my tree that's my favorite.  I ain't really decorate none in SL.  Last year, me 'n Bren 'n my mom made a gingerbread house together 'n put candy on it 'n stuff 'n that was real fun.  My favorite holiday's Christmas Eve though cause there's too much presentin' 'n stuff on Christmas. I like presents 'n stuff but Christmas Eve's my most favorite cause ain't most folks too worried 'bout doin "Christmas."  Mostly they're just all wore out 'n they go to sleep all fussed bout the next day 'n the whole world gets quiet 'n real still.  Cause I figure the world knows stuff we ain't, even though Jesus was really born in the spring 'n not at Christmas, I figure God knows when we celebrate it 'n I figure Jesus was really prolly born on a night like Christmas Eve.  Mostly folks ain't paid no attention, but I like thinkin' bout that cause on Christmas Eve it ain't get lost like it does on Christmas Day when we're all messin with presents 'n company 'n food 'n all that stuff.  All that's great but it's better when we stopped on Christmas Eve first to celebrate why we got Christmas at all.

My Journal Entry That Ain't In My Blog Cause It's On A Notecard

What I Like and Ain't Like About Myself

Well...I like how I look pretty okay even though I ain't really too pretty, 'n sometimes kids do dumb stuff like givin me stolen skins or landmarks 'n tellin' me I ain't look good enough.  But I ain't care.  I got red hair 'n grey eyes, cep when they're green or kinda greeny-brown, 'n I got freckles on my nose.  So even if I ain't real pretty 'n I ain't never gonna be no model or no cheerleader, I like me pretty okay.  I like that I can be real tough 'n plow over folks when I'm playin' soccer or bust up fights, 'n I like that I can take care of me 'n my sister when we ain't got no one.  I ain't really like doin' it, but I'm glad I can leastways.

I ain't like my name rhymin' with Bren's.  Cep that ain't my fault cause she was born after me anyhow, 'n I'm the oldest.  So I think our birthmom shoulda come up with somethin' else that ain't rhyme cause twins that got rhymin' names sound stupid.  I ain't like when I let folks too close 'n they do somethin' stupid that I'm dumb enough to let em be close enough that it hurt too much to be able to not care 'bout it.  Guess that's pretty stupid, huh?  But I mostly got rid of that so I ain't gotta not like that too much longer.

The Superhero I Chose I'm SUPERCABBAGE!  I hadda be a cabbage a long time ago when my birthmom turned me into one by accident.  Cause she's a wizard but sometimes she gets a lil carried away 'n I think she drank too much faery grog or somethin.  Anyhow she turned me into a cabbage 'n boy she made a druid real mad doin it.  Anyhow I got turned back into a girl, but then after we got adopted, my uncle hadda be a banana...I forget why.  So I turned into SUPERCABBAGE to make him feel better.  Then I got in a fight with a rabbit and won with my trusty sword!  Well...I forgot how to use it so I hadda read the instructions.  But it ain't matter cause I'm SUPERCABBAGE!!!  SAVIN VEGGIES AROUND THE GRID!!  And kids too, cause if I save their veggies then they ain't gotta eat em...  And I made my own sword since I ain't sposed to bring real ones to school.

Course when I got home, my mom made me take a bath.  Whoever heard of a superhero hadda wash behind their ears?  Er...leaves?  Whatever.

So if you ain't wanna eat your vegetables just call SUPERCABBAGE!!

Are You Pessimistic or Optimistic and Why?

Well...I spect mostly I'm that pesty word cause I figure if you ain't hope for too much, it's harder to get let down.  Cep that ain't always work too good cause sometimes you ain't hope for nothin extra but then folks come along 'n kick you in the teeth anyhow, 'n that ain't too much fun.  But it can be kinda okay too cause when you ain't hope for nothin, if someone DID come along 'n do somethin' real nice or make you special then well, you got a real nice surprise you ain't even expectin.  Mostly though folks'll hurt you so it's better if you ain't have too much faith in em.  Like you can be friends with em 'n stuff 'n believe in em but that ain't mean you gotta let em real, real close.  Cause then you start gettin feelings in there 'n you can't think straight for nothin so if they do somethin dumb, then it'ud really hurt you.  But the other way, you can still be their friend but they can't hurt you so much.

But sometimes way inside I might dream 'bout lotsa things.  But I ain't dumb enough to tell no one...

What I Want to Be for Halloween

Well... I wanna be a gypsy, but I ain't found no good costume yet.  See last year me'n Bren were both witches, but I seen this gypsy costume I liked loads only I's kinda dumb 'n I ain't buy it.  Mainly cause I already had a costume.  I ain't even remember what store it was in, only where it was.  Well, all them stores closed 'n moved so I ain't know where it went 'n I been lookin' everywhere 'n I ain't find it.  So I asked someone if they could make one 'n they said they're gonna try.  So if that works out I"ll be a gypsy.

I ain't really know why I wanna be one.  My birth mom'us one.  They're kinda cool, gypsies, cause they got their own clans 'n their own laws 'n they get to roam around all over the place.  Plus, they're storytellers 'n they perform 'n stuff 'n I like that. Imma be a storyteller when I grow up.  Plus they got super cool horses.

What Animal I Chose 'n Why

I'mma pick the seahorse, cep I ain't really wanna hafta pick just one cause there's a awful lotta cool stuff.  But I figure ain't no one else gonna do a seahorse, 'n I wanna do somethin' ain't no one else gonna do.  Plus seahorses're real weird 'n funny so there's prolly lots to do.  They ain't like no other fishes 'n they got real cool tails.  Some of em got spikes even, 'n the boys hafta have the babies.  I'mma learn about them.

Why Did You Choose Oceanside School?

Well... Bren used to go to Hardknock, 'n she wanted to go to school real bad, but it just ain't really work out for her too good.  I ain't go cause I ain't wanna go to school at all, 'specially after she went.  So we heard 'bout this school 'n the town 'n my mom was lookin' for us a new house.  Bren wanted to go to a real school 'n we figured since this one was new, maybe it'ud be better cause everyone would be new sorta.  Well... my mom ain't like me skippin' out on school even though I figured I was smart enough already, but she tole me I hadda go.  So here I am.  Cep I'm pretty glad I came cause this school's way funner... well, mostly ... than I thought it would be 'n I got to make lotsa friends.  Bren 'n me were throwaway kids so long we ain't really had no friends 'n Bren ain't really make none at her other school.  So this was a pretty good choice, 'n I like school a lot now.  Specially soccer.

I Was Scared Once...

Well…I ain’t really get scared so much ‘n if I did, I sure ain’t dumb enough to show it.  Cause when some tough kid’s messin with you or some stranger who’s tryin’ to hurt you, you get scared ‘n they think they’re winnin.  Cause that’s what they want so I ain’t never show em if I did get scared.  You just gotta tell yourself you ain’t ‘n then nail em a good one to prove it.

Cep one time I did get scared.  I went to see this movie that was sorta a ghost movie ‘n it messed with your brain a lot.  So it was pretty creepy, but I liked it pretty fine anyhow.  But it kinda stuck in my brain, like when you see somethin’ that kinda scares you a lil in a movie ‘n you think about it later.  Well I ain’t really thinking ‘bout it but one night it was real, real late…like way past my bedtime.  But I was still up cause my mom ain’t there to tell me to go to bed.  So I hadda go downstairs ‘n the house was all dark ‘n spooky, ‘n it was kinda creepy so I spect I was thinkin bout that movie a lil bit.  I went in the back room ‘n flipped on the light ‘n walked in AND THERE WAS ANOTHER PERSON IN THAT ROOM!

Well…lemme tell you, I was most scared clean outta my Underroos ‘n my skin too!  I prolly jumped higher than I do on coach jill’s trampolines ‘n hollered fit to bust.  Prolly did one of them cartoon things where their eyes bug out ‘bout eight feet ‘n they ain’t even land on the ground 'fore they take off runnin’.  ‘Fore I went hightailin’ it outta there though, I looked again… ‘n then I figured out all I’d seen was my own reflection in the cabinet door cause it was made outta metal.  It moved when I walked in ‘n I just saw it from the side ‘n thought it was someone else.

Well…I felt pretty dang silly, I gotta say ‘n I laughed at myself a good ole long time ‘n Bren ‘n everyone else did too when I tole em that story.  ‘n you can laugh too, I ain’t mind.

How I Feel about Hallowe'en

Well...that's kinda a hard question cause I got sorta mixed up feelin's 'bout Hallowe'en.  There's parts of it that's kinda fun, but then there's other stuff 'bout it that I ain't really think's too great an idea.

Dressin' up in a costume's real fun -- me 'n Bren have lotsa fun doin' that.  And there ain't no kid I know who ain't like to get free candy 'n stuff or parties at school 'n stuff like that.  So I like them parts real fine. 

Sometimes folks make bad stuff into good
I guess there's somethin' to Samhain.  That's the day of the dead 'n I spect it's always real important to remember 'em.  Even though I ain't believe in no spooks so I ain't think they gonna come back 'n haunt you if you ain't.  But some things 'bout Hallowe'en I ain't like.  Cause it mostly's a day when people make all the real bad stuff look real cool like dyin' 'n killin' people 'n stuff.  Plus sometimes people do real bad stuff like wreckin' people's houses'n cars 'n tearin' stuff up cause they figure cause they're in costume ain't no one can do nothin' 'bout it.  I ain't believe in mosta the Hallowe'en stuff nohow so it ain't really my fav'rite holiday.

What if Cows Gave Root Beer 'Stead of Milk?

Well, I think I ain't really want them to do that cause I ain't like root beer too much.  It'ud be better if they all gave differnt stuff so then you could get whatever you wanted.  I'd get me a Cherry Coke cow. 

Course maybe it'ud be good if they can give both, cause there's lotsa sugar in root beer, so they could pretty  much make you a root beer float right there.  Now that'ud be real cool.  I like root beer real fine in a root beer float.

Actually, in India, cows sorta give soda cause they're makin' soda outta cow pee.  'n they make stuff like toothpaste 'n all outta cow poop.  I ain't think I'd want that so much, so if I ever go there I'm takin my own toothpaste 'n I ain't buyin' no groceries over there.

My Top Favorite Things About Fall

Well, this writin's pretty easy, I guess cause fall's my favorite season of em all. 
Reasons I like fall:
1. I like that it gets colder but it ain't so cold your fingers fall off.  I like wearin' my sweaters 'n sweatshirts.=
2. I like all the colors, cause I love red 'n orange 'n all and walkin' in the forest when the trees is all changin is awful pretty.
3. Fall's when you have stuff like harvest parties 'n hayrides 'n bonfires.
4. Fall 'n bonfires mostly means lotsa stories and I really like that part -- sittin' round the campfire listenin to a great story or tellin' one.  It ain't even gotta be a scary one.
5. Fall's harvest, 'n that's kinda a special time.  It's real cool how the earth grows all that stuff for us, 'n fall's when Samhain comes.  I ain't Celtic or nothin, but I like them stories 'n plus wearin' costumes for Hallowe'en's pretty fun too.
So that's some of the reasons I like fall.

If I Was a Mouse in My House for the Evenin', What'ud My Family Be Doing?

If I was a mouse in my house, I prolly ain't see too much in the evenin' cause we ain't do too much.  Bren 'n me's in school and mom's mostly sleepin'.  Cause mom's gettin' old, you know, so she gets tired easy and she's gotta take a nap.  But if she was awake, she'd prolly be cleanin' her closet or fixin' the furniture cause she likes our new house to look nice.  She likes to cook dinner so if I's a mouse, I'd prolly check out the kitchen.  Wish I WAS one too cause if she was awake, she'd be makin' me take a bath and no mouse ain't need to see that.  Me, I'd mostly be doin' all my homework or practicin' my soccer, cep I woun't see that cause I ain't allowed to play in the house.  Bren'ud be paintin' or somethin' cause she does art alla time 'n she's got her pics up in our new room.  Or if we ain't got too much to do, then I ain't see nothin' at my house cause we'd be at the Wait prolly.  We ain't had no mouse there before but I guess one could come if they wanted to.

Camp-out in the Wait

What September Reminds Me Of...

Well...I guess when I think of September, it mostly makes me think of school.  Which ain't make no kind of sense since I ain't never been to school til I come to OSE.  But that's what I think about, apples 'n new pencils 'n lotsa fall-y plaid colors 'n chalkboards.  And that's all sorta silly too, cep folks do pick apples in September, but some kinds ain't ready til October nohow.  And we ain't really use chalkboards no more 'n ain't no one at OSE wear fall color plaids cause we got purple 'n black uniforms.  Well... we do gotta have pencils.  I ain't never can find mine nohow 'n when I do, it's broke.  So I guess September ain't make me think of nothin' that makes no sense.

If Kids Ruled the World...

If kids children ruled the world, lotsa things'ud prolly be real diff'rent.  Firstly, we ain't never have homework, 'cause kids children know better'n to use up their free time doin' that stuff 'less someone makes 'em. We ain't gotta eat no nasty stuff like broccoli and we ain't gotta wear no stupid floaties in the pool.  Soccer'ud be worth a grade 'steada spelling.  And we ain't gotta take a bath 'less we want to.  Ain't no grownups'ud do bad things to kids or leave 'em even if they ain't good all the time.  So that's how it'ud be if I could run stuff.

 Cep maybe it ain't really work that way.  Cause if kids run everything, then Bren ain't eat nothin' but cookies'n lollipops so she's prolly be sick alla time and her teeth'ud fall out and she'd prolly get real fat.  Plus kids is real mean sometimes and they leave other kids out'n stuff.  Ain't no one wants a grownup to hafta tell 'em to be nice to you or pick you for their team, cause it'ud be better if they picked you cause they liked you. And grownups ain't always fair neither and you can't beat em up cause they're bigger'n you'n you just get sent to the principal's office.  But sometimes they're real fair like Miss Jill give everyone a chance to play soccer even when she ain't know em and kids ain't mostly do that.  Plus it ain't no good to have a mom if you're in charge cause grownups is s'posed to know everything and they ain't if you gotta run stuff.  Cause I hadda take care of my sister for a long time cause we ain't had no folks, an it ain't so great.  It's way more better when you got a mom.

Which Quality Best Describes My Life?

Well... I guess my life right now's mostly just peaceful.  And that's a pretty good way for it to be.  There's a lotta things goin' right and that ain't happen all the time.  My mom'n sister'n me finally got to live together again, and we got our own place right here near school.  So we're real happy cause we get to be a family again and my mom's real happy cause she wants to be someplace she can stay busy and meet some new folks, cause she's real good at that.  Plus she wants us kids to be where there's other kids so we can do stuff like play at their houses or walk to school or have sleepovers'n stuff.  We ain't got furniture in there yet but that's okay cause that ain't too hard. You just gotta get some guy who's real strong to drag it in the house.  Plus I got two good classes at school and I'm meetin kids'n stuff and I made the soccer team so it's nice to wake up and have stuff to do'n places to go.  Well, the homework part ain't too great, but the other stuff's real good.  But I even got all that stuff done anyhow, even that big ole report thing.  So ain't nobody got mad at me for a while and I ain't get in no big trouble lately or hadda get my mouth washed out or nothin.  So I spect my life's real peaceful and I guess I like it that way.

If I Could Be Any Animal, What Would I Be and Why?

Well that's a real hard question, I spect cause there's lotsa animals that's pretty cool.  I guess I'd be a tiger, cause they're pretty much my favorites.  I like em firstly cause they're real big'n tough and ain't nobody mess with one 'less they're real stupid.  Cause mostly if they're that stupid then they get ate, and then they ain't gonna do nothin' stupid no more.  Plus tigers is awful pretty, cause it's okay to be big'n tough and still look real good, but you ain't never see no tiger wearin' bows in their fur I bet.  Anyhow, they're orange and that's one of my favorite colors too.  And they walk real cool cause they're so big but you coun't even hear em if they was walkin behind you.  Plus tigers ain't gotta do no homework, so that's another good reason to be one, cause I'd like to see some teacher try to give a tiger homework!  Cep sometimes when soccer teams'n stuff start callin' emselves the tigers, they draw this cute picture of a tiger on their uniforms, cep that ain't what a real tiger looks like, cause real ones are way cooler.

Why We Should Save Endangered Species

Well...I guess a endangered species mean it ain't gonna be around too much more.  Kinda like kids time to practice soccer or stuff if they gotta keep writin essays alla time bout stuff they ain't know nothin about.  So I spect it's important we save em.  Cause if we got too much homework and we can't practice or nothin then we're gonna lose and Oceanside's gonna get stomped in our next game and that ain't no good at all. 

So anyhow, I guess that's mainly true for animals too, cep maybe the real awful ones like gross bugs that eat all the plants or somethin like that.  Cause we ain't take too good care of our world so mostly stuff's dyin all the time.  'N our world was doin pretty good 'fore we come along to mess it up, but now it ain't right and we're killin stuff off real fast so we can get bigger houses and cities and roads and stuff.  We ain't too balanced, I guess'n that's real bad cause 'ventually it'll just be people and there ain't be no animals no more'n maybe no plants neither and it'll just be people everywhere.  And that really ain't no good cause animals is way cooler than people sometimes and even if they ain't, just people is pretty boring don'cha think?  But if it ends up bein just humans then I spect they'll all die too cause the world can't take care of em no more.  So maybe when we're killin all that other stuff, really we're killin ourselves, just slower.

What I Think About People Who Take Advantage of Other People

Well...I think pretty much they oughta get big trouble for that.  Cause people start pickin on other people just cause they can and that ain't worth nothin.  Sometimes they're bullies and they try to fight or they take your lunch money or push you down in the dirt and stuff, and you just gotta fight em then so they leave you alone.  Sometimes they do it diffrunt ways than just fightin you.  Maybe they're just mean to you cause you ain't rich or you ain't got fancy clothes like they got so they call you names or just ain't be your friend or nothin, and pretend you ain't even there.  And that ain't right neither.  It's pretty okay to be yourself 's long as you ain't hurt no one else.

Sometimes people's mean to other people just cause that kid ain't smart enough to know.  That prolly ain't right neither.  I did that before but it ain't real nice so mostly I don't cause I ain't like to be mean to people less'n they need it.  Specially kids.  Cep some people do, bullies mostly and they ain't deserve nothin' cep someone to show em they can't do that to folks.

I guess there's all sorts of ways to take advantage of people.  An I spect none of em's right really.  They just make me real mad, cause they hurt people ain't done nothin' to em...

I ain't writin' about this no more.

If You Could Pick Any Superpower To Have, What Would It Be?

If I could have any super power, I spect I'd wanna be real real strong.  Like REAL strong cep not so strong that I broke stuff if I bumped it.  Only strong when I hadda be.  So that way when people's pickin on other people or there's bad guys around I can punch em and all their teeth'd fall out.  Cause I can get rid of a kid who's bein real mean, but mostly the real REAL bad people're grownups and they do lotsa rotten stuff that kids can't stop or nothin.  So bein' strong'ud be better than flyin' even cause then ain't no one round me gotta worry 'bout nothin bad happenin to em, like bullies or stuff like that.  Plus then if someone bugged me too much, then I could knock em out real hard so they coun't punch me back.  Cause by the time they woke up, I'da run clean away.

What Does the Month of August Remind You Of or Make You Think About?

Well, mostly summer, cep that ain't mean nothin' cep for Bren cryin' a lot cause she ain't get to go to camp again, cause we couldn't never send her before.  Means things're hot and you get all sweaty and stuff if you gotta go someplace outside.  Summer's good though, cause if you're stayin' in a throwaway kid house or a orphanage, it ain't too cold and you ain't gotta worry if you don't got good clothes for winter.  Cep it's real hot tryin to sleep in those places. 
Some people always call August the dog days of summer and I spect that's just 'cause it's so hot even a dog ain't goin nowhere cep under the shed to lay around and stay cool.  I like summer pretty okay though cep I hate swimmin cause my mom makes me wear floaties in the pool so then I look real stupid.  I ain't like water too much nohow cep when it's real hot, but August is a good time for swimmin, if there is one, I guess. 
Last summer, we were livin sorta everywhere cause we din't have no home an Bren was lookin for a family.  I din't want one, but then she found our mom.  I din't like her at first, but she adopted us anyhow, so we got to be a family and Bren finally got to go to school.  So I guess August is a pretty good month, cause we're way better off now than we were last year cause of August.
