Spring Breaker

20 Mar

It’s Wednesday of my spring break and I’m really sad because it’s already almost over. I guess I’ll just relive some of my memories from this week by telling you guys about them.

Saturday – got home around 4:30, Carrie and her friend Maureen got home from the Sporting KC game, we had dinner, we watched the Wizards of Waverly Place movie, played Mario Kart, Maureen left, and then I went over to Morgan’s at 10:15 and saw all the girls 🙂

Sunday – went to church, played Mario Kart with Carrie for a good chunk of the day, don’t remember what I did, then we couldn’t find anything good on TV so my dad put on C-SPAN (aka the most boring channel ever) which had a 2.5 hour special from 1999 about James Monroe. That really made us laugh. We watched it until the end.

Monday – I slept until about 11:30 and then watched the Jodi Arias trial. In the afternoon I went out to the square and put in some job applications for the summer. Carrie came home from school and we played some more Mario Kart. Then, that night, there was a C-SPAN special about James Monroe’s wife and John Quincy Adams’ wife. This show was live, and they were taking calls so we tried to call in to see if we could get on the air to ask a question. Carrie and I were both calling and she finally got through to an operator! The woman asked us to say our question, and to stay on the line and they would put us on air shortly. After about 8 minutes, they were done with the Elizabeth Monroe segment so we never got to ask our question 😦

Tuesday – I woke up “early” at 10:00 and my mom and I went to the Verizon store to look at SMARTPHONES!! I definitely put my persuasive skills into action this week. We decided on the iPhone 4 which would be free with our upgrade, but Becky isn’t home so we wouldn’t be able to activate all of them at the same time which is cheaper or something. She’ll be home on Friday so we’ll go and get them then. Then my mom and I went to Cheddar’s for lunch and then to Hobby Lobby. I had a headache most of the day so then I took a 2 hour nap (oops). When I came downstairs, Carrie and I played MarioKart. Then I went to Bunco with my mom! I had the most wins so I won $18! Luckily then I had enough money to pay back the $10 I borrowed from Carrie to put in the pot.

Wednesday – Today I haven’t done anything except take a shower and right now I’m watching the episode of Dance Moms I missed last night.

P.S. I’ve seen Selena Gomez on both David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon this week promoting her new movie Spring Breakers, so that’s where I got this blog title. The more important thing, though, is that last night she did a duet with Jimmy Fallon called “Mario Kart Love Song” which is very appropriate for this post as well.

Dentists are the real pimps

21 Nov

I see that so far no one else has blogged over Thanksgiving break, but I like to so I will anyway.

Today I went to the dentist and I had 20 cavities and they decided to just pull out all my teeth. Just kidding. That was the dream I had last night, because I dread going to the dentist just like almost every person that exists in the world. Well, I guess every person that has dentists in their society, which probably isn’t everyone who exists.

I never had a huge problem with the dentist when I was little. I started going when I was four probably, and at the end I always got to go to the toy closet and pick out a coloring book, or some bubbles, or a dinosaur toy. My dentist is named Dr. Snow and I used to call him Dr. Snore to be funny. And I liked how they called the little sucky-hose thing “Mr. Thirsty.” But one day when I was about six, I just freaked the F out for some reason. I eventually calmed down enough for them to do whatever they needed to, but at the end they didn’t let me go to the toy closet and I was bummed.

Even at age 19 and 11/12ths, going to the dentist is still not an enjoyable experience. Even though now, I can choose a movie or sitcom to watch while they scrape all the crap off my teeth and clean them, and I always choose Wall-e, Up, or Ratatouille. Mostly Wall-e though. Today I realized how much of a pimp the dentist is. All the dental assistants are young, attractive females and they do all the hard work. Then the real dentist comes in for about 10 seconds and asks you to bite down and then says “Okay, everything looks great,” and leaves. But you know that he’s the one that’s getting paid with all your dental insurance money. So I guess the conclusion is that dentistry is like legal prostitution?

Other than go to the dentist, I played Bunco with my mom and her friends at their monthly Bunco get-together last night. We all put money in the pot, but unfortunately I didn’t win any. That was okay though.

Here’s this video again in case any of you wanted to relive the magic.

Have a happy Thanksgiving, friends! Enjoy being home with your families, except for you Derek.
