Last Scrapper Standing...



...ahh...done my first contest entry. The dare for the contest was journalling on a photo; I went a little crazy with spray paint and sewing, though..he he...I was up til 3 last night working on everything after staying at school til about 9:30 working on stuff; thus, I went to nap for 2 hours, and slept accidentley for 7, not even hearing my alarm (sorry Adam!), and then rushing to finish the rest of the homework at noon that I had planned to do this morning, because it didn't get done while I was accidently sleeping, obviously. Argh! And to top it all off, I had a killer headache all day, I think inhaling the spray paint fumes from the page were to blame for that, so came home early to snooze and feel better. Then, later, realized I had no batteries to take a picture of my entry, just ironically because I remembered that i should charge my camera batteries a few days ago and forgot about it until tonight. Sooooo off to the store I went, only to (happily) realize that I had cartoons to pick up from the post office (finally), Ben & Jerry's Choc. Chip Cookie dough was on sale, and I could buy an eyelash curler that doesn't rip out my eyelashes!! Annnnd I got my page submitted before the deadline! Yay! So my night took a turn for the better, now, off to eat ice cream and watch ren and stimpy...(which, I will not watch all night, but if I happened to, I would not miss Adam's class anyways because it is slotted safely after lunchtime.) =)

1: Apology accepted.
2: Ben and Jerry's CC Cookie Dough ice cream?!! I love that stuff! (legal disclaimer: not a better-marks-bribe-request)
3: Eyelash curler - too much information.
4: Ren and Stimpy all nighter - only at VFS could that be considered Constructive Use Of Time.
5: Lunchtime?!! I love that stuff! (see above disclaimer)

Now get some sleep!
