Well, Harriet's slumber party is in two weeks, but last night I had a sleepover. I expected to have only Harriet over but she brought Kristy with her. I had mixed feelings about having her there, but it was all good in the end.
We spent all night watching movies and gossiping about... well... Meredith and her minions. She's been mean to all of us, but she's been mean to Harriet since kindergarten, teasing her for her name, her clothes, and the fact that she lives with her mom and grandmother. If there's one person in the sixth grade who hates Meredith more than I do, it's Kristy. Meredith's been mean to her, too, calling her names like "half-boy, half-girl" and other names I can't even write here. In addition, Kristy says Meredith stole her baseball mitt and she hasn't found it yet.
I had so much fun, I didn't mention the dance once.
We also discussed the guest list for Harriet's party. I knew Harriet herself would be there, and Kristy too probably, but the question was, who else? I suggested Katarina, and was surprised when Harriet said yes. Harriet doesn't know Katarina at all, and I only know her a little bit from newspaper. Then she surprised me again by suggesting Hilary, the new girl. "I don't know," I asked, half-sleeping, "would she come?"
We then threw out a bunch of names -- Mia St. Clair, Bridget O'Shaughnessy, Sasha Moore, Megan Ryder, Alison McCann. Then I thought about it. There was one person missing. Nicki. I realized, I actually miss having her here. It was weird.
I told Harriet to just send out all those invitations and see who shows up out of that group. We don't know all those girls that well, but who cares, right?
We had a contest to see which of us would fall asleep first. It turned out to be Harriet. I looked at the clock, it read 2:57 a.m.
Kristy was next, it was 3:13 a.m. Meanwhile, I drowsily opened my notepad and started jotting ideas for my social studies fair project. Try as I may, I can't help myself. I finally closed my notebook and closed my eyes at 3:45 a.m.

Wow! Sounds exciting! I love sleepovers with all my "old" friends from my old school. They invite me to all their parties still even though they never see me! That's really a good friend. I just love Harriet!

Sounds like fun, Haley!

I wish my Mum would let me stay up that late! But no such luck. Maybe when I start school.

I hope Harriet's party goes well.

Sounds like you guys had fun! And I hope you have fun at Harriet's party too! Maybe a lot of the girls you mentioned will show up and you'll find a few of them are cooler than you ever thought. =)

Sleepovers are so much fun, aren't they? I love seeing who stays up late the longest, although it's usually me. I'm definitely part night owl. ;)
