My New Room

Well, technically it's my old room, but I now share it with Kit thanks to some random changes around the house. So, it is new in the sense that it is rearranged and there is different stuff in it.

My side is on the left (like you hadn't guessed from the posters). Of course, that means Kit's side is on the right. In care you are really interested, my posters are: "I Want to Believe" from The X-Files and the other is from Fringe. Kit's are: Draco Malfoy and one of Arthur from Merlin. That's Coco in her basket.
 And here is our desk and locker, which we use more for sticking posters on than storage.
A close-up of all our "interests". Yup, that's our life documented with posters.

I'd Like to Introduce...

... Jess' little sister! Yup, you read that right. I would have mentioned her a lot sooner (like when I started my blog), but she was very sick for a long time and Jess didn't want me posting her picture or talking about her. But now she is all better and I was given permission to post her picture. So, without further ado, let me introduce everyone to Ella Hanako Sullivan!
Ella is seven-years-old and best friends with my sis, Gillian, who is the same age. She likes pink, The Lion King, Ni Hao Kai-Lan (a TV show), and panda bears. When she was sick she lived mostly at her maternal grandparent's house. Jess is so glad to have her little sister home again. Of course, Jess is really, really cheesed at me, so I'm just kind of guessing that she is glad to have Ella home. I actually had to get the picture from her dad because Jess wouldn't talk to me. Mother and Casey dating really, really ticks her off. She is so over-dramatic. Got to (try) to love her for that.

Now, I would like to take a moment and shamelessly promote my other blog, "The Haunted Dollhouse" (link is on the right). My friend Frankie and I are having our first contest. All the details are on the other blog, but the quick rundown is that is a photo contest for you to dress as your favorite paranormal creature. If you have the time, come support our blog! *End of shameless promoting*

Mackenzie Scarlatti

Alright, I'd like to talk a bit about my cousin Mac Scarlatti. She is the same age as I am (12). She was born in North Dakota and lived in New York City for several years. She has three brothers: two older and one younger; three horses, and a dog. This is her bedroom:
 
She likes The Lord of the Rings, Law & Order: LA, and Jericho. She is quite a fan girl. Of course, I don't know anyone else like that. Haha.
 She got out her horses and we played horses until her Golden Retriever puppy came barging in.
Rex is so cute! Of course, I love Westies more, but how can you not love that face?
Everything was going good, Mac and I talked for awhile about TV and animals. Then Rebecca showed up.
 "What are you just sitting around for?" she demanded to know. Apparently Rebecca has to always be doing something and talking is not considered "something".
 "Calm down a notch, Beckers" Mac told her. "What do you want to do?"
 
"I have an idea!" I volunteered.
But then they both looked at me like I was some kind of nut job and I kept quite.

I don't know what to think sometimes. Mac seems pretty cool unless she is with Beckers. Then she starts acting like she is so much better than I am. Which is how Bec acts, but Bec and I don't see eye-to-eye on anything anyway so that doesn't bother me. But I would LOVE to have someone to talk TV with. JJ isn't much of a TV fan. That leaves Kit and she gets too squee-y. I'm hoping Rebecca won't turn up often since she doesn't seem to be a fan of ranch life, but I still have to put up with them together at school.

Alright, enough negatives stuff. I'm starting to get a new obsession (I know, like I need another): Criminal Minds. Has anyone else watched that? It's so creepy. So far I've mostly watched seasons 3-5. Nellie loves the show--she is so morbid for an 8-year-old--so it's always on our TV. Kit is totally in love with Reid, or at least his hair. She's mad that he cut it in the newest season. Okay, I've blabbed on enough. Though you know I could go on forever...

Tea Party

I spent an interesting afternoon with my cousins yesterday. Before I start, though, let me make a quick introduction. My cousin Mackenzie "Mac" Scarlatti moved here from New York. She and Rebecca are best friends and so far she seems nice enough. I'll talk more about her in another post. She's 12 like Bec and myself.

 Anyways, Rebecca is a huge fan of all thing "girly-girl". She loves tea parties and frilly dresses. So we (Bec, Mac, myself, and Kit) went to this tea party place where you get to dress up in silly dresses and be served lemonade and tiny sandwiches.

Rebecca was in charge and got to ring the little bell when any of us wanted anything. She poured us lemonade and instructed us on how to behave like proper ladies.
 However, Kit and I discovered there was a box of cookies on the table and we became all "COOKIES!" and acted like, well, I don't know, brats, maybe?
 Meanwhile Mac is just contently watching and eating a tiny (tiny) peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Later Mac informed me that the dress Rebecca was wearing wasn't from the tea party place, but actually her own. I haven't been to Bec's house yet, so I have no idea how many foofy dresses she owns, but apparently it is a lot.
Here is the mandatory group shot so you can see how ridiculous we all look. Okay, I will admit I did have a tiny (like the sandwiches) bit of fun getting dresses up and trying to behave properly. I just hope my cousins don't make this a regular thing. Mac told me she doesn't like tea parties either but she learned long ago to fake it to please Becca. I probably just ruined that for her if Bec reads my blog.

Anyway, it was nice to get out of the house and do something different. Soon I will go to Mac's house and see her horses and new puppy (a Golden Retriever!).
