... well ...
I actually won something.
No, silly, not the Lady of the Fling or anything like that.
It's the 20th follower drawing over at Kelsyee Bolton's site.
Thing is, I NEVER win these things, and I don't even remember entering. LOL
Quelle surprise! (French lessons seeping in)
I'll update everyone later with my prize info -- once I get it.

I invite the newcomers to this blog (and there are quite a few of you!) to go over some of my previous blog entries whenever you have time. Meredith Hopkins and her merry band of minions have been doing this for the last two years. You'd think they'd stop this but they have not.
Thankfully, though, I have good friends both on and off line to help me get through this. You know who you are and I'm happy that you are in my life.

Natalie didn't say anything, but she didn't stop Meredith from saying anything, either. "You know," Meredith added, "you'd look much better without your glasses, but then again, that's not saying very much."
I've said plenty of times in this space that I hate Meredith Hopkins with a passion. I really, REALLY, REALLY hate her. And now I hate that Natalie is running with her.

Which meant this latest meeting of the dance committee was quite the eye-opening experience. They looked, spoke, and behaved like a full clique. How I ended up the de facto chairperson of this committee, I'll never quite know. "Now that we have a name, let's go on a theme," I began.
"Well, Natalie suggested last time that the king and queen be called the Lord and Lady of the Fling," Sasha began. "Why don't we run with it and do a medieval type thing?"
"That's good, Sasha," I said, "but wouldn't the Spring Fling need another name if it's got a medieval theme?" Thing is, we need a name for the dance in order to start discussing decorations for it.
"Not really," Sasha shot back.
"But 'Spring Fling' doesn't sound terribly medieval. I mean, if we're calling the king and queen the Lord and Lady of the Fling, the name of the dance itself would have to sound more medieval."
"What about Ye Olde Merrye Spring Fling?" piped in Natalie. "We don't have to change the name, but we can make it sound more medieval."
I'd have to think about that one. Anyone up for suggestions?
"I've already bought my dress!" protested Meredith, stamping her foot. "And it's certainly NOT medieval! I spent a lot of my parents' money on it! Don't tell me I have to bring it back!" She shot glares at both Natalie and me.

All of a sudden Natalie Spencer is the most popular girl in the grade. Is it just because of the hair? Or is there more to it?
Today in gym class Meredith and Sasha were all over her, playing in her hair and stuff. Meredith treated her like garbage when she arrived, now all of a sudden she wants to be buddy-buddy???

It was Natalie, and she looked different. Her hair was now shiny and bouncy, and cut in layers. I'm betting her new stylish 'do will be the envy of the grade. Meredith Hopkins, the reigning hair queen of the grade, has officially been supplanted. Natalie's hair is gorgeous.
"I didn't know you were on the committee?" I whispered to her.
"I wasn't until this morning," she laughed.
Sasha suggested the "Spring Fling" and Natalie thought the king and queen should be called the "Lord and Lady of the Fling."
Since I couldn't come up with any better suggestions, we went on to other business. With that in mind, Meredith has already begun her campaign for Lady of the Fling. She took out a campaign-style ad in the school newspaper asking people to vote for her. She doesn't get it. An eighth-grader ALWAYS wins that. ALWAYS.
Oh, and watch the next post. Yep, I'm jumping on the giveaway bandwagon and will announce a giveaway!

Hey Hales, picture this. Principal calls Night-Meredith's name as
the spring dance queen, right, and she gets there and starts making her
speech. Well, I got this weird image of her walking up there in her
nightclothes, and I also got an advance copy of her speech. She gets up
there, flips her hair, and starts talkin.' "You know, I gotta thank myself
for being so awesome and looking so darn good. Like, all you minions, I want
everybody to bow down to me and listen to everything I

This is just a short post to share a couple of pix of Harriet Vee snapped today while the guests were here. :)
For newbies to this blog, Harriet is, of course, my best friend. We arrived here three days apart (she actually came first) and she sat next to me on my first day of school last year. We've been friends ever since.
