Ahhhh Christmas...

 We all love Christmas. You know, I bet even Jewish people like Christmas. (They get a week off. I mean, seriously, who doesn't love time off?)
 This Christmas, I got something I have been badgering my mother about for a while: a camera. It is a purple Coolpix camera and I love it already, although I have not used it yet...

 But I think today's post should not be about what we get, and instead be about the memories of past Christmas's. Particularly the funny ones.
 Like the one I am about to share with you. It took place at my darling cousin's house, and involves a beagle named Rascal.

 Rascal was a rambunctious little puppy, and was around a large Christmas tree that was covered in lights. This is NOT a good combination. I repeat, NOT a good combination.
 We were all playing with the dog, taunting him with toys, and then pulling them out of reach at the last second, ya' know, the normal stuff.
 After getting tired of being tricked repeatedly, he went to sniff the lovely, GIANT tree.

 Long story short, the dog got tangled in the lights and practically pulled the tree down.

 Feel free to post your own funny Christmas memories.

 Buh-Bye! <3

 I am one of those people who freaks themselves out to the point that it is funny. If you are one of my friends and I have watched a scary movie with you, you would already know this little fact about me.
 It is funny, though. My Brain pushes me to a point where I cannot sleep, therefore, act like a drunk two-year-old. (Which, as certain family members of mine can vouch for, is a very funny thing. Don't ask.)
 Take my friend Amanda. Since 6th grade, I have been invited to her sleepover birthday parties. And as long as I have known her, she has loved scary movies. Every year, Amanda asks me to give her a list of movies to watch for her birthday. This list must include two scary movies and two funny movies.
 In 6th grade, we watched The Haunting in Connecticut.
 I screamed. A lot. And we only made it through about half of the movie, then it was time to go to sleep. I had to sleep next to the T.V. And the bed. And the closet. And the storage space. And the door to the hallway. I was forced to sleep in between each of these things that my Brain had made, by this point, completely and utterly terrifying places.
 Now, I was the last one to fall asleep. Of course. I ended up getting about 3 1/2 hours of sleep. (This is still not the point where the drunk two-year-old comes in, believe it or not.)
 The funny thing about what my Brain does, after the point of the initial shock, a.k.a. the first night after the watching of the movie, is that I constantly replay the most terrifying bit of the movie while trying to fall asleep.
 The total loss of sleep added together is what makes the two-year-old come to the surface.
 Believe me, you would not believe it to be the same person. I have been know to laugh at stupid things when I am normal (Hahahahahahahaha! Cause that actually happens. Hehehe!) and have had a normal amount of sleep. But when I am sleep deprived, my hyperness and "laugh-box" get kicked into over-drive.              
 It's fun while it lasts, but it is not something you would want to force yourself into.

 Anywho, I remembered to post this week, and that's what's important!

 See you guys next week! Buh-Bye! <3

Keeping Time, Not My Forte

 So once again, I am late. I am VERY SORRY!!!! I miss you guys, ya know that? But then I forget to talk to you. (When I say, "You Guys," I use the term loosely. I am pretty sure this is just me talking to myself...)
 Anywho, how would you people be doing? I am well. Thanks for asking, Brain, I mean, you guys!
 Argh. Nothing too eventful, lately. I will, I think, be meeting with some of my buddies: thescottishpoodle (Sarah), and Taylor Hayes (Taylor).
 Either way, so far, not much has happened.
 Well, actually, I did get a Christmas tree! I did ALL of the decorating, but I don't really mind it, soooooo.... But it's all nice and pretty in my living room now! As Sarah has seen. And so have her dogs*.
 Well, I suppose I will be going now, seeing as how I have nothing going on in my so-called "life."


 *thescottishpoodle, aka, Sarah, and her dog Bailey have a blog as well. Look them up. I don't really remember the URL, so hopefully she will post it in the comments, or you could just try looking up thescottishpoodle, but I'm not super sure about that. Sarah?

Gobble Gobble *UPDATE*

 Okay, so Thanksgiving was this past Thursday! Hope everyone had a great food fest. Mine was, well, crowded.
 Some of my family, my aunt, uncle, and four cousins, have for the past couple years gone to Maryland to visit family. This year, however, they stayed. And not only did they stay, but so did my uncle's sister, brother-in-law, and their two kids.
 To give you an idea of how crowded it was, imagine this: Three younger kids sitting with two older kids in the kitchen. Then, a grandfather, a great-aunt, an aunt, an uncle, the uncle's sister and her husband, me, my sister, her boyfriend, my mom, and one younger kid in the dining room. That was how my Thanksgiving was spent. But the food was good and the people were funny, so in my book, that made up for the lack of space.
 Also, this year, before heading down to see the family, Siobhan, my sister, and her boyfriend ran the 4.7 (I think) mile Manchester Race. A.K.A., The Turkey Day Race. We are all very proud of the two of them who have been training since August. (I ran three miles with the sis at one point!)
 Sorry if this post is not so full of hilarity as the others. I feel like it is more informative than funny, but I'm trying. And we all know it's the thought that counts. At least most of the time it is.
 So yesterday, mi madre, Grandpa, my aunt, my uncle, and the four younger childrens and I went and bought their (the aunt/uncle/cousin's) Christmas tree. It is now standing proudly in the living room with pretty lights and not-so-spread-out ornaments.
 I must go now, the fam (cousins and aunt) and I are heading off to see Tangled!

 P.S. I will update the post later to tell if the movie is good. (I will try not to give anything away!!!)

 Buh-Bye! :)

*UPDATE* Okay, so Tangled, was pretty awesome. I am not ashamed to say that I cried. Twice.
 It was really good! Of course, you should know that I have turned into my mother and am a total sap when it comes to movies, so that may change your veiws, but still, it was rrrreeeeaaallllyyyy good.

 Okay, bye for reals, now.

 Buh-Bye! :)

Many Things To Talk Of *UPDATED* **UPDATED**

 AAARRRGGGHHHH!!!!!! I'm am sorry to those of you who actually check out my blog every Sunday! (Sarah) Ummm.... sooooo.... I actually have no excuse for you this time except for, "I'M SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SORRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I FORGOT!!!!!!!!!" Yeah. That's pretty much my excuse...
 Right at this moment, other than writing this post which I'm am pretty sure is destined to suck, I am waiting for my tea. And my dad. So I can go to my wonderful aunt's house and see my wonderful cousins.
 Also, I know that I am once again a day early with the post, but I am also two weeks late, soooo......
 How are you guys? Because over the last two weeks, the only really thing worth talking about for me was the wonderful youth group I attended with two of my very few (five) followers of the blog. Thanks cassie5 and thescottishpoodle for such a great time! Oh, and issues in the "boyfriend" department. But seeing as how he occasionally reads the blog, I will not get too deep into that.

 P.S. The kettle went off. :)

 Anyway, feel free to comment as much as you want on this one seeing as how I neglected you guys. I feel really bad about it, and I would like to once again thank thescottishpoodle for reminding me that my blog actually exists, and that it is not just something that I dreamed up and thought, "Hey! That would be something really cool to do! Especially with all of the spare time I have in my 'life'!" but then never revisited the thought of making it happen.
 Okay, so Youth Group... It was really fun! I got to hang out with fun people, and watch funny videos, and the whole experience was a whole bucket of fun! (No, I am NOT being sarcastic!) I had loads of fun and I got to hang out with an old friend who I no longer see because she is home schooled....
 Oh! Another worthwhile topic! Anyone who has read the Harry Potter books (masterpieces) or has seen the movies, first of all, I salute you. Second of all, please, please, please post a comment of which was your favorite and why. (If you have seen and read them, please comment about which book and which movie if they don't correspond) Third of all, I had very much fun in the very early morning of Friday, November 19! Do you wanna know why? Of course you do! I woke up at 11:20 pm, got dressed, and went with my dad and sister to the rave motion pictures in Manchester, CT to see the 12:45 am showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!!!!!!!!!!! It was amazingly fantastic! Not only did I get to see it, but we were the only ones who stayed to watch the credits, and because they turned the lights on in the middle of them, we got THREE FREE TICKETS to go back and see the movie AGAIN! Now I don't mean to brag, but how AMAZING is that?!?!

Okay, I just thought of something COMPLETELY off topic, but I am going to give you guys two links to two of my most favoritest blogs in the world. (And yes, I know that is not proper English, but who cares? I mean, it's a blog!) #1. Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half:
#2. Jen and John's Cake Wrecks:

WOOO! I hope you guys check them out and think they are as funny and awesome as I do.

Okay, so as I mentioned earlier, I thought this post was destined to suck, and so far, I think myself to be correct. So I will hopefully remember to post next week and hope to see you guys then! (Also, please comment on what you think of the two sites!)
 BYE!!!! <3

P.S. I am now drinking my tea. :) Now I just have to wait for my dad...

*UPDATE*  Another blog to check out... Taylor H's:
Check her out if you are a gLeek or Potter fanatic like yours truly!

**UPDATE** Hey! So you know how I was like I wanted to see my wonderful aunt/cousins? Yeah... That didn't happen. I ended up going to the mall and then saw Morning Glory, which was surprisingly good. But that is just my opinion, and I, as a sucker for romantic comedies, may be slightly biased... See you next week! Hopefully...

I'm LATE! I'm LATE for a very important date!

 Hey guys!!! Sorry, I know I'm a few days overdue. But I have a good reason: I had almost absolutely no time. Almost.
 For those of you who understood the reference made in the title of todays post, let this be foreshadowing of the story to be told.
 This year for Halloween, I was Alice Kingsley, from Alice in Wonderland. I was unable to post this past Sunday because I was in New York City! (And had no computer within my grasp) As you may have guessed, NY, not the best place to collect candy. Although, some was gathered: a mini hershey bar from Magnolia Bakery, A lollipop from Sephora (which will be later mentioned), and two pieces of candy from none other than Fiyero, from the cast of Wicked, who has also signed my Play Bill after seeing the magnificent production of this wonderful story on Broadway.  ARGHGHHGHGHGH!!!!!!! It was super-fun-omigod-amazing-fantastic! (I think I covered everything there)
 Anywho, let me get you up-to-date on the Sephora incident. Mi madre and I were walking around Times Square and decided to go inside. I wanted to look at make-up, so Sephora was the obvious choice. As we walked around, tried on nail polish, (my favorite was "Teal we meet again") A woman, someone who worked there, came up and asked me what I was. Yes. I was searing my costume ALL DAY.
 My mom and I told her I was Alice in Wonderland. She asked, " Is that the one with the fairy god mother?" We say no. Mom says, " You know, 'down the rabbit hole'?" She says, "Oh, wait! You mean the one with the big house?" We wait as she finally explains her reasoning. She had been talking about the seen when Alice eats the cake and grows inside of the house. We answered, "Yes! Her!" She tells us to hold still and that she wound be right back. We wait.
 She comes back a minute later with a bucket full of lollipops and says I can take one for explaining who I was to her. I chose one and then she left.
 Later, after looking around for a while, we start to leave, we see her again and she says to us as we reach to door, "Bye Alison!"
 We believe her to be a slightly confused person.
 See you guys next week! (And hopefully on time!)

My Brain Needs To Learn About Boundaries

 I decided to post a day early because my brain finally let me know that it hates me. Or maybe I'm just nocturnal.
 Either way, I stayed up very late at a football game (GO INDIANS!!!) with a couple of friends. Then I stayed up with my darling and lovely and wonderful sister. Then I sat in front of very amazing space heater, which was like Heaven seeing as how my house has no heating right now. All in all, I was up pretty late.
 So I woke up multiple times during the night. Then I woke up again at 6:00 am and I was unable to fall back asleep. I rested my eyes for about five minutes, but not sleep. So anyway, my alarm went off at 7:00 am because smart little me forgot to turn off my school alarm clock. So pretty much no sleep. And the whole time, my brain was all like, "Hey! I'm your brain! I don't want you to sleep! Hahahahahahahahaha!!!!" So yeah. And that is why I am posting this. Okay. I guess I'm done.
 See you guys next week!

 So for those of you who don't know me, I'm Maeve. For the last two years, I have liked one person.A few nights ago, this person asked me out. As you may imagine, I was super happy. Seeing how this is the first guy to ask me out face to face, it made it that much more special. Of course, this event happened on a Friday, so I won't be seeing him until tomorrow. But the way it happened just made me laugh. It all started with my friend going to talk to him about asking me out. This friend, being a guy, does not understand girl-talk, therefore took my shoulder shrug answer to the question of talking to this crush as a yes. To those of you who are guys, that does not mean yes. So Friend goes to talk to former crush/current boyfriend. Then Friend shows up pushing, at that point, my crush. Friend says, "Ask her, ask her, ask her." Then Other Friend, who is a girl, comes up saying, "Ask her, ask her, ask her." He just looks at me. Friend and Other Friend keep saying, "Ask her," to him.
 I started to laugh at the sight because Friend is shorter than Boyfriend, and Other Friend is shorter that Friend. I lie in between Friend and Other Friend. It was funny to see a six foot guy, who is an athlete, being held there by a small girl and a shorter-than-him guy.
 Eventually, I walked away, leaving the odd group to themselves. I saw them walk away, and since this all took place at the school dance, I started to dance with a different group of friends.
 A few minutes later, I saw Current Boyfriend, Friend, and Other Friend walking back over to me. The same thing happened as before, only this time, Current Boyfriend said something to me. He said, "I don't want to ask you out because I don't want it to ruin our friendship," which, though was incredibly sweet, was not what I wanted to hear. This time Other Friend stayed with me as Friend and Current Boyfriend walked away yet again.
 I said to Other Friend, "This is getting really old, really fast. Come with me," and I dragged her over to Friend and Current Boyfriend. Current Boyfriend's friend was standing with them at this point. I walked up to him and said with a smile on my face, "Hey, want to go out with me?" Boyfriend's friend was saying how Boyfriend had to say yes and that I was now automatically his friend as well. Other Friend says, "No! You have to ask HER!"
 So Boyfriend goes, "Maeve, will you go out with me?"
 Of course I said yes, and then we hugged.
 One of my friends standing in a different group had witnessed this and was waving me over to talk to her.
 But Other Friend told me that after I left, Boyfriend was saying, "I can't believe I just did that. Oh my God. I can't believe it. Wait, where is my girlfriend?!"
 And that is how I got asked out for the first time face to face.

If you want to read this blog again, I will be posting weekly!
