I have realized that I have been siriusly neglecting this blog. Yes, that was a Sirius pun. Anyway, I haven’t posted anything in over a week, which is rare. This time it is not due to any Plurking. I have not Plurked in over a week either. Life has just been utterly chaotic.
My twin cousins’ graduation from high school was last Saturday. Graduations at their school are quite different than at mine. Theirs are quiet and the students are respectful. At my graduation, we were loud and obnoxious and did not shut up even during the speeches. Beach balls, silly string, and bubbles were all over the place, despite the principal’s long lecture about not bringing them. Then there were the loud shouts of ’06!’ and the loud horns that people had stationed outside the building to sound when their friends names were called.
My cousins’ graduation was quite different. The students were all quiet during the speeches and I did not see a single beach ball. There were some bubbles, but they were being used by someone in the audience. I was impressed that someone brought some horns and sounded them a bit, which was something that didn’t happen at my other cousins’ graduations years ago.
The party was fun and the food was good. The biggest difference between their party and parties where I live was the lack of gnats. At outdoor graduation parties where I live, pretty much everyone has their hand in the air waving away the gnats the whole time. There was a noticeable lack of hand waving at my cousins’ graduation. My family found this kind of funny. Of course, there was also a lack of little black ‘sprinkles’ in the cake.
We arrived home on Saturday night and I went to a friend’s graduation on Sunday. That one was fun, although it did rain and we had to go inside. Then, yesterday started my five days of work without a day off. I worked yesterday, today, and have to work tomorrow, Saturday, and Sunday.
Then, a week from today, we are getting our carpet redone upstairs. This was brought on by my brother’s fish tank leak a couple weeks ago. So I have to spend Monday and Tuesday moving all my stuff to the basement. That will be a tedious job.
Other than that, not much new has been going on. Benny is fine and he helped my mom clean out the refrigerator today. He cleaned the vegetable drawers. Sadly there are no pics since I was at work at the time. Weasley and Moony are good as well. Weasley will have to spend a couple days in a fish bowl during the carpet project since his tank is in my room.
Oh, and I am pet sitting my neighbors two tortoises for a couple days. They’re pretty interesting. I’ll get some pics sometime. It was pouring rain when I went over today so I didn’t get any pics today. They live outside. Their names are Zander and Rocko.
