Sassy and a Bit Twisted
I watched "Pan's Labyrinth" last night with thebratling. It was both awesome and sad, and various aspects keep spinning through my head - a tricky plot/meaning to interpret.
We had an impromptu picnic for July 4 - everything outdoorsy was rained out, but we told people to bring swimsuits over just in case. Sure enough, the sun came out for about an hour, so we ran to the pool, played some water volleyball, and then headed back inside for yummy food.
Jessica made some fantastic guacamole, and reythia made a steaming chocolate cake - the cake was done around 11p, so no one wanted to wait for it to cool. The icing melted and ran all over the place, and it looked just BAD.
Yesterday, I drove Jessica to the blood donation center. Everytime I go, I get a little less nervous, but I'm still too squeamish to donate - this time, though, I sat in the room and watched most of the procedure...and maybe by the end of this year, I will be able to donate blood! This may not seem like a big deal to the rest of you, but it's a HUGE step for me.
The fifth Harry Potter movie comes out on the 11th, and on the 21st, the final book! SQUEEEE - I am excited!
