I tasted summer on your peppery skin.
Been saved, the warm of the waves. I felt a slip into
the watery grave. My girl, linen & curls.
Lips parting like a flag all unfurled. She's grand, the
bend of her hand, digging deep into the sweep of the sand.

Extended weekends are the best :).
I think it was because of an extra snowday, but for Memorial Weekend, we received Friday, and we will also have Monday and Tuesday off. Five day weekend sounds good to me. Thursday was Senior Skip Day, and Julie wanted Amanda and me to ask to hang out with her instead of going to school, but my mom would not lift her iron foot on the matter. Even though my grades and attendence have been fairly outstanding :P. She wasn't buying into the "C'mon mom, I deserve a break" speal. Oh well. Fortunately the day was easy to handle, and after school Amanda, Julie, and I went to art club, then out for icecream with our favorite teachers, haha. Seriously, how cool are we? Hahah. Atleast they aren't men, or creepy. The art teacher is really young, and alot like us so it's fun being with her. Then the music teacher is like a mom, and we hung out with her daughter, who's the same age as us, too. Then the band teacher is an absolute sweetheart. The music teacher brought her son and his girlfriend too, so we all just crowded together at this little outdoor table, trying to lick up our icecream before it melted all over our hands. It was a fun time :).
We then went back to Julie's and watched the Rugrats movie until those two passed out. Then I hung around for a bit, paid Tom and his friends a visit down back where they were having a bonfire, then got some much needed zZzz's. Today was relatively uneventful. I left Julie's and took Amanda to her boyfriend's early in the afternoon, then spent the day lazing around, doing some reading, and watching Dead Like Me. Also-- something more exciting. My mom is considering the idea of a LAPTOP for my birthday, which is coming up the thirteenth of June :D! I have wanted one for so long. The thing is though, our budget, like many other's lately, is tight. So we are going to investigate local used computers at this place here that has a reliable reputation. But if they don't have anything I like by next week, I can get something new, as long as it's reasonably priced. This means like less than $600.00. Probably more in the ballpark of $400-500, at most. I might get her to give me some lee-way if there's one that is just flawless, but we'll see.
What brand/models do you guys suggest? I know most of you already have laptops, so I want to know what's good :). Don't say macbook though, that'll just tease me, haha. I plan on buying one of those beasts when I'm older and have a job that can afford it.
Currently I'm hung up on this HP G60, it's $499.00, so it might work with our budget.
Another thing I've been contemplating is changing my hair. I mean, I like it okay the way it is, but it's getting awfully boring. I think my hairstyle has been the same for more than a year D:! Time for a change, perhaps? Plus as it's getting hotter out, more hair is going to equal more nuisance. So I might cut it. Not just a trim, a cut :P. I'm thinking slightly above my shoulders. It will be a significant change from how it is now though, so I'm a little nervous. I don't want it to turn out awful, especially since this fall is when I have to take my senior yearbook picture. If I do it, I plan on keeping layers in it, and maintaining my bangs. So should I do it...? :P.
In the last post I said I was reading TheVictoria Vanishes, but I actually changed my mind and began Prescription for a Superior Existence first. Both works are from the library, and are due back the 31st :[, but I hope to finish them. This one I'm nearly halfway through and it's superb. Like, it has me hooked :). Maybe I'll review it once I'm done.
Have an excellent weekend :),
