note: I apologize in advance for this inconceivably long post...my longest to date, perhaps?? maybe even longer than Lunasa, and Donogh slide show!?? okay well eat some...
okay well...all I can say to sum up my hectic, uncool, and very cold Christmas eve and Christmas eve-eve (er?) is...omg. Okay so, I was at Dad's in H-boro, and there was an ice storm on Wednesday night. I went to bed on Wednesday night at about 10-ish, and I woke up at around 1 am to find everything pitch black. Hmm, I thought, what silly man turned out all the lights so early (ha, ha)? So I yell to wee in the other room, "Hey fatty, why is it so dark?" and he says, "The power went out about midnight" and I'm like, er okay, whatever. He was online cos he was on my laptop which still had some battery juice on it. so...guess what?...are you ready for this...CLIMACTIC STATEMENT!!!!....
the power is still out.
Yes, it has been, what - wednesday night, all of thursday, friday, saturday, and sunday, and my dad's house(trailor, mind you) has no power. This means, no light, no HEAT!!!!, and no water because the Highland County water co or w/e has no electricity either, and therefore cannot pump water to the city. My dad has not had a shower since Tuesday. and it is colder inside the house/trailor than it is outside, or at least it felt like it to me, but that may be because it's supposed to be cold outside so it at least felt naturalish...but omg, we spent two nights in like a 16 degree house...I have tasted true misery...and my flipping stupid grandmother won't get them out of the house, either. There are shelters around because 90% of the county is out of power - like 900,000 people!!!!!! all those people, freezing and waterless, on Christmas day!!! Doesn't that suck!!?!??!?! Okay maybe it doesn't sound very extreme written down, but you try sleeping on a freezing couch when it's less than 20 degrees in the house and there is no water, which means no teeth brushing, no toilet flushing (that rhymes), no warm comfy bed to escape to at the end of a tiresome day (tiresome at dad's means being online for a minimum of 6 hours running, and our max amount of activity is going to Frische's) but still...omg it sucked so bad and I feel horrible for everyone there...we went to bed at 6:30 because it was so dark that we couldn't see to do anything else, and it was so boring too...and I slept that night from about 9 to ten to 2 am and didn't go back to sleep again, but wee and dad and I just lied in our beds and talked (our beds/respective couches are so positioned in the trailor that we can all talk without being in the same room)...so that was my Christmas eve and Christmas eve-eve...I was so happy to see mum when she came to rescue us, I've never been happier to see anyone in my life...except maybe Donogh..lol
well er aside from my near-death (if death is extreme discomfort and indignance) experience...I got a digital camera for xmas!!! YAY!!!!!!! And I am already looking forward to taking pictures of Donogh on it when I next see him, which will be...a long time. lol but I have to hope for something, non?
Also, having said camera for the unspeakably long period of two days means I have buttloads of pics...I might not post them all but I have seriously got like 50, which is a lot, kind of...maybe not?..maaa
these are from xmas day, at Liz's, who is faring quite well, lol OKAY does anyone get the feeling I am talking very silly today!?!
if these are big, I'm sorry, and they're all prolly going to be like the exact same size cos I just went through and resized them to 40% of their original size...
by the way I have just added 3 pages to my photobucket and I have not even finished uploading pics, lol!! or "unloading" as HP has so artistically decided to say
look, fatso on christmas morning, holding up one of his awesom-o lampos that he got
and also wearing his super-cool Led Zeppelin hat that I so awesomely picked out, kind of, even though it was the only one Hot Topic had..
he got a mini amp too, regardez, him with his 'baby' and his, er new baby, literally, ha, as in, amp is small, baby, okay shut up
with the aforementioned hat lying on the ground, already forgotten..
what an old man...okay these are all definitely huge, I will work on making my pics smaller, maybe
awww look..it's me on xmas, curled up and kind of tired, possibly? got up at 6:40am to open presents, and for the first time in like 8 years, I got up before wee! HA!
I hope the vast majority of people who come here don't have dial-up, so things load faster...omg I'm in like dumb-mode and I can't explain why lol
lol this is..nice
as is this, lol
and notice cool shirt, matches cool hat...he's just a...cool cat! lol.
and see, for past photography's sake...
okay here are some pics of my dad's place
check out the grass - every individual blade was coated in ice...it looked like green beans, I though, lol
this is my favorite pic...leaves coated in ice, mmm
so as you might be able to tell from these pics, Hillsboro got like 2cm of snow...exciting...but everything was coated in like an inch of ice so...yeah
Today, mum, wee, and I took 9 gallons of Kerosene to their house, which is 2 hours away...long drive ish...and this is an exciting picture that I took on the way home, just out of boredome. I just took like 8 minures MINUTES to type that because I can't type today
and here are some poop drums that someone in our church donated to wee-matt-mason-ben's band Shut Down (lol)
the sign says "Do not touch! Not tuned! Will Damage if played!" I don't think it would really damage them but they just didn't want kids coming up and messing with them, they're in the church's school gym..and they added some percussion pieces themselves which I thought was amusing, ici
and look, I took pictures of my cool self because I am so...cool
lol this one is retarded
omg okay I am done - sorry!!! lol!!! I promise (maybe) I'll never post that many pics ever again...maybe it is not even that much??..oh well..
