Quickie post

Been so busy around here, getting ready for my upcoming travel trip (at the end of May!) and the end of the school year.
This is the velvety purple blouse I won at Kelsyee's site. Cute, huh?

All About the Spring Fling

Hello everybody, sorry this is late. I've had internet problems lately, and Vee's cable guy is coming by the house tomorrow to see what is until then I thought I'd let everybody know what happened with this past Friday's Spring Fling dance.

Nicki showed up THIS week. She helped me get ready for the dance. I'm wearing the dress she wore to her own spring formal. The updo was her idea, btw.

The 7th grade Spring Fling court nominees were asked to pose for a pic. (Can't you tell I'm uncomfortable?) Sammie and Amanda were the 8th graders and they got a separate photo. Then came the announcement everyone was waiting for -- Lord and Lady of the Fling. In a landslide, Adam Cartwright won Lord of the Fling. He bounded up to get his crown.
The contest for Lady of the Fling was, in Principal Ballard's words, the closest she'd ever seen it. And the winner was ....

Instead of putting the crown on her head, Natalie held it out. And then, in another surprise, she started to speak. "I don't deserve this," she said. "I really don't deserve this."
Both Meredith and I shrugged our shoulders. Did I just type that? Meredith and I shrugged our shoulders. We were both wondering what the heck Natalie was doing.
"Haley Hotchkiss," Natalie called, "come here."
"Haley, I'm really sorry, I've been a total idiot. I don't deserve this. If anyone deserves this it's you."
Meredith's mouth flew open so wide and she stamped her feet and shouted, "I object!"

But Natalie paid her no mind and continued. "I think the only reason they voted for me was because of my haircut, really."
"Natalie, that's not true!"
"Haley, you deserve this more than anybody. Not because of what you've done for me or even the 7th grade, but for the whole school." Natalie dropped the crown on the floor and ran out.

My Spring Break

Been a week since I last updated, which is odd for me.
First, Harriet and her family went out of town for the holiday, which is a total bummer. Second, my cousin Nicki was stuck in Colorado and wasn't able to come down (but she did send her dress for the Spring Fling!) And she appears to be completely convinced that I'm going to win Lady of the Fling next week. So my spring break has been a bit of a bummer.
The weather's been pretty good, except for today which is kind of a bummer. Tomorrow's Easter Sunday, but I've never been much into the whole Easter-Bunny type thing.
Lindsey's been learning to roller-blade, and some of the results have been, well, pretty disastrous. See for yourself, lol.

So now, as a result, poor Linds is on crutches!
