Hello Home Skilletz! :)
My my, it's been awhile, hasn't it? :P Almost a month.
I've had quite a few adventures since my last blog, some of them I'm positive you will want to hear... ;)
Remember I told you guys I was getting some purple highlights? Well, I did. But only for about 15 hours. :P My sister came over to visit one night last month, and we just decided to go ahead and do my hair that night. It was fun, I enjoyed the company, but the results of our makeover, was not... pleasant. To say the least. Don't get me wrong, my hair looked awesome, she did an amazing job, alas she had forgotten a few preparations before we started dying my hair. Or rather, some things she was supposed to do after. When we rinsed it out, it bleed a lot, like most hair dyes, so it got all over my face. I wasn't so upset about that until I tried washing it off. It wasn't working. :evil: So after about an hour of scrubbing, I had finally gotten all traces of purple off my face, but then it was red and sore, due to the hard scrubbing. So, we had some fun the rest of the night. Then the next morning, when I woke up, my face was completely purple! :x I was so mad. I almost cried when it wouldn't come off. :P But it finally did, and I called my sister right away. She had "forgotten" to mention to me that any hair colour like that will bleed every time I go to sleep, or take a shower. :x I was ticked at this point. :P I told her I wanted it gone ASAP. So, she went out and got some hair dye, my original colour anyway, and fixed it. Only now, for some bizzar reason, the highlights underneath the top lair of my hair, is red. :| At least you can't see it. :P
Sorry for not thinking of taking a picture, but I wouldn't have posted it anyway, I would have been to embarrassed. :P
Last week, my Mom, Dad, and some family friends and I, went to Springfield Illinois, to the Abe Lincoln sites. 8) It was so much fun, we all had an amazing time. Most of you know, Abe Lincoln was my favorite President. He ended the Civil War, feed the slaves, and then was killed because of it. I love reading anything about him, and his life. He was truly an amazing man. I would have loved to meet him. 8)
We went to the Abraham Lincoln Museum, and New Salem. It was awesome. We go to New Salem every year, they always have candle light tours for a few nights in October. We've been going for about 4 years now. But we dont get to the Museum every year, I think it's been at least 7 or 8 years since we've been there. I always enjoy going back though, I guess I've always had a love for history. 8)
This is my Mom, Me, Dad, John, and my sister Liz, in front of Abe Lincolns house. :D
This the capital of Springfield, we were walking to the Museum when we seen it. 8)
Sorry theres not a lot of pictures from our trip to Springfield, we coulden't take pictures at a lot of the sites we went to.
We did some shopping, of course. :P I found an Altair figure, and got some awesome books, and of course some things from the souvenir shops. I got a Confederate soldier hat at the New Salem shop. 8) I already had a Union one at home. :P The books I got, one is called The Sight. I haven't read it yet, but it looks very good. It's about this pack of wolves, and they can transform into people, and they live in a castle, it's set back in medieval times, so I instantly knew I would love it. The other book, is the last book in the Vladimir Tod series. 8) I also got Halt's Peril in the mail Friday! :D I had to finish Skyclan's Destiny though, before I started it. I'm only on the 11th chapter, but it's already amazing. I think Ranger's Apprentice is my favorite book series. 8) Oh, and I've also finished reading all of the Mass Effect books! :D They were amazing! Seriously, I absolutely loved them! Almost better than the games! Okay, maybe not that much... :P But yeah, they were epic, I'd recommend them to any si-fi reader. 8)
Let's see, what next...
I also bought Zelda Spirit Tracks for the DS, and Dead Space on the 360! 8)
Both are awesome games, I've always loved Zelda. And Dead Space is cool, a great horror /action game. It feels a bit lacking somehow though, don't get me wrong, I do like the game, it's just not something I would play through again. :P I'm on chapter 7 out of 12. Some of the boss fights are so creepy, I only ever play it when I have a friend over, it's so much fun scaring the crap out of our selves. :P In Zelda, I'm kinda stuck. :roll: I'm with Zelda, and I got her past the guards, but now I can't figure out where to go to leave the castle. :P If you could help, I be very greateful. :P :)
I've also watched a lot of movies lately. I went to go see Legend of the Guardians with some friends. And yes, before you ask, that is the owl movie. :roll: I personally liked it. I mean it was meant for kids, but heck. I still like it, and am not ashamed to admit it. If you like a movie, you like it. It doesn't matter what you're age is. No need to make excuses. Heck, I still watch some of those old Disney cartoons. :lol: Beauty and the Beast, and Lion King FTW! 8)
I've also watched Iron Man. It was awesome! I really didn't think I would like it, but after watching I now love it. :P I want to rent the second one, next time I'm out, it looks epic. 8) I went out last week, to get Prince of Persia on DVD. I was also hanging out my my nices and nephews, they are all fairly young. So I got some of my Dad's old scary movies and watched them with the kids. It was so much fun! :P They were getting so freaked out, but they loved the movies. We watched The Blob, and the original War of the Worlds, I think they were both made in the 50's. :P Ahh, good times, good times... :)
For the Star Wars fans reading this, only 14 more days until Force Unleashed II! :D That means only 19 more days until Halloween! :o :D
Well, thats it for this blog. Oh, wait! :D I FINALLY have those Civil War reenactment pictures ready! :D The only reason it took so long is because before I could get them onto our computer, our camera went crazy! :P It wouldn't turn off, or do anything when you pressed the buttens, so we have to get a new one. But anyways, here are some pictures!
Pretty cool huh? 8)
Oh, and here's the most awesome pic! :D
Well, thats it for now, I'll post all the pictures in an album later! :)
Yours In Eternity,
