I haven't been doing much today, except listening to How to Betray a Dragon's Hero and playing with the dog. I was home alone for most of the day, so I had tons of time to do whatever. And I chose to spend it listening to the saddest and most deppressing book in the HTTYD series. XD Hopefully something more will happen tomorrow. ;P
Nothing much happened today either. XP Just... watched DuckTales... went to church... spilled grape juice... played liar... yeah. Sorry if I'm boring you to death. Oh, btw, click on the date to see the quote of the day.
Yaaaayyyy!!!!! We got a scanner!!!!! Finally!!!!! Watch out, art gallery, here I come!!!! XD Tomorrow, that is... ;D
Wow, I've been using pretty much all my free time today scanning artwork and uploading them to my art galleries on RW wiki, HTTYD wiki and pretty much anywhere I can post my art! This is great!!! Now I need to get a DeviantArt account, but I don't think my parents will let me, cause they think that just my wiki account is enough. :P Does anybeast want a picture drawn? Because I need something to draw. I know I'll come up with something soon, maybe tomorrow, but right now I am out of ideas. Extremely unusual. XP
It was really rainy and cold today, great weather for those guys to be replacing the gutters. XD Ouch. I really got my finger smashed during staff fighting practice today. :P It was not helpful that my staff was really heavy, and Kenny kept wanting to chew on it. Puppies XD. Still don't know what to draw.
Wet and boring again, though we did watch part of How to Train Your Dragon 2. I should have started this journal a few days earlier than I did, when we went to the Oregon Symphony on Friday. It was booooooriiiing. Sorry to anybody who likes this sort of thing. ;P But of course, being Vikings, me and my friends made it more fun for ourselves. We were hoping the crazily overenthusiastic lady would fall off her tall, small stool on her face, and also that maybe the conducter dude would fall backwards off the stage, or accidentally fling his stick at somebody. Thankfully it was only about an hour. Then on the way home in the car, we were drawing funny pictures of people getting smashed by anvils and other weird stuff. XD The only thing I liked about the whole thing was getting to be with my freinds, which doesn't happen very often. :(
Me and my brother finished watching HTTYD2, and both of us cried. XP I can't help it, every time I even think about the part where Stoick died it makes my eyes tear up. DX :'( Also, the new dog treats we got smell like molasses, and they smell so good I tried one. It actually wasn't too bad. Sure tasted like molasses. It was so rainy and cold we spent most of the afternoon in the barn messing around with Kenny. Even though he is a pretty big dog already, he likes to sit on my lap. XD Ughhhh I'm sooo stuck on Outlaws!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's not that I don't have any ideas, I'm just having one of my freeze-ups. It'll wear off eventually, it always does, but it's really annoying. >.<
Yaay today we got baby chickens! So cute and fluffy! One is a barred rock, picked out by Tuff, and I got a white brahma. I think I decided to call her Sif. Hopefully she's a girl, otherwise I might have to change the name. XP It's so windy all the noodles have been blown off the noodle-trees here. I'm really cold. Still stuck on OoM, but I did get the prologue for DoR written. Rewritten, actually. I had one already but then I didn't like it so much anymore and decided to try again. What do you think, should I give you guys a sneak peek? ;) My oldest brother (Ab) finally got back from California today! He was gone for a few days. I've mostly just been sitting in my room reading Uncle Scrooge. I was just reading Return to Xanadu. That one's cool. Well, duuhhhh, it's by Don Rosa, of course it's cool! ;D Also, I've been reading through the whole Tintin series in order, something I've never done before, even though I've known Tintin since I was 6/7. But now that we have the whole series, I can! I'm on Flight 714 right now. That will change very soon, though...
One of the chicks died already. :'( Thankfully it wasn't one of our special ones, though. I spent most of this morning reading Comet Nights, by Rainbow Phoenix Fangirls. It's really good! Even though I've always been kinda meh about a girl Night Fury, I like this one! If you like HTTYD fanfics, I reccommend this one. I hope my story, Cast Out and Away, is chosen as the featured fanfic, though. Everyone loves it. Does anyone have anything they want me to draw? This is so weird! This has never happened for so long! The longest it's ever been is one or two day, but this has been several days! I have no idea what to draw! During church today, I drew a weirdly random picture, I was so bored. I still need to finish that Kanohi dragon request, but I'm working on that a bit at a time because it's so complicated, and also I need the computer for references. So, anyone want me to draw a character? Please?
So, I got quite a bit written today, but not much on Outlaws! I posted the prologue and most of chapter 1 of The Tale of Roland on HR, and started on Rise Above Tragedy. This story is pretty sad so far, and I'm only on chapter 1! *sniff* Writing about a dead dragon was so hard for me! How can I kill Heather's parents?! *cries* This is going to be the saddest story I've ever written!!!!! Maybe. XP Okay. Calm down. ;P Oh, yeah, I FINALLY thought of something to draw, hopefully I'll do it tonight. Actually, two things. XD Other than that and schoolwork, I haven't done much today. Odin's dirty diapers, this whole stupid daylight savings time thing has messed me up! Everyone's so tired from losing an hour of sleep. Who invented the blinkin' thing anyways?!?! >:( (how do you make crossed eyes...)
Nuuuuuuuuuuu RiderRanger picked Comet Nights as the featured fanfic! I'm really disappointed, but at the same time happy for Rainbow. :P Well I didn't write or draw much today, just finished the Kanohi dragon and finished an illustration for The Tale of Roland. Me and Spikes watched the RttE episode Shock and Awe today, and now I want to draw a Seashocker. Btw, has anyone read Star of Salmonberry Pond yet? I posted it on HR. It's really weird, I can't think of what else I did today, though I know I did do something. :P
I forgot to do it yesterday! :o Probably because I usually do it in the evening, but yesterday evening I was Skyping with a friend, so... ;D Well today was very nice, I didn't wear a jacket or shoes. Of course, anyone else would have, but it gets 60/70 degrees here and we're like "Let's go swimming!!!" jk. We went down to the creek, got all wet, went up again to the pond, got all wet again, and went up to the pasture to dry in the sun, which was hard to do because whenever we sit down, Kenny wants to lick and chew us. XD Then we came in and I made Irish sodabread, (mostly by myself) and helped make Bubble and Squeak. Of course, it doesn't bubble or squeak, though I have heard it whistle a little. YYUUUUUUMMMMMM!!!!!!!!! This is like my favorite part of St. Patrick's day; the food! Oh, duh, definetly the donuts! We get donuts so rarely that it's really really hard to choose one. But I finally managed to choose a bevarian cream. Sorry if I'm making ya'll jealous. XP Anyways, I'll stop right there, and happy St. Patrick's day, everybeast! :D
Well I didn't get much writing or drawing done today because I was gone all afternoon at a party! :D It was annoying that I was so busy making sure I had all my armor and stuff that I forgot a weapon!!! XP So I borrowed one of my brother's swords when it was time to fight. What, isn't that something people normally do at a party? XD XD It's normal for us... Tuff (Spikes) got his head chopped off by Ruff, but he got her leg. Then we all tried to fit in one chicken cage at once. We got all of us except two in there. And we played a wild game of sardines, which didn't work very well because someone (won't mention any names...) kept peeking, and once one person knows where the hider is, everyone else follows, and we have a full can of sardines very quickly. So yeah. It was fun. ;) But now I'm pretty tired. XD I have something really good for April first... *Quackerjack laughter* ...
I didn't get the chance to do this yesterday cause other people were using the internet and nothing would load. But anyway, I finished chapter 5 of Outlaws! Yaaay!!! I did it while sitting on the platform way high up in the tree at the end of the house. It's a huge tall Douglas fir. I just lately found out that apparently, Douglas firs aren't real firs, or pines, or whatever else, so I'm like what the heck is it?! XP It was really nice, it got like 70 degrees. We went down to the creek for a bit, then spent the rest of the time doing pretty muchly nothing.
Now for today. It was not so nice, and it was pretty wet. For some reason, the stupid computer won't let me comment on anything, or reply to any messages. >:( Makes me so mad. Hopefully it will work tomorrow, because there's several fanfics I want to comment on.
Whew, it's finally working again. Not much happened today. Dern it, I can't find that "Bored again!" quote on BarfandBel.ch. Guess I'll have to submit it. Actually, I did get an absoloutly amazing idea for A Hero's Journey... >:)
We (me and Spikes, that is) watched a couple of Quack Pack episodes on Youtube, just to see if they are any good, and they are HILARIOUS!!! I hurt from laughing for about half an hour afterwards. Might be a bit funnier than Goof Troop even. XD Why is it always so funny when everything bad is always happening to Donald?! Idk. ;P Then, this afternoon, we went for a hike on the logging property across the road, and Kenny did something so absoballyloutly disgusting I won't even tell you. XP I'm working on a totally awesome villain for Stormy Friendship! I should have a picture of him soon. ;) I'll tell you this, though; his name is Xivu Gato.
Well this morning we went and did Botany at a friends house, and it was soooo fun!!! We 'dissected' flowers. That is the only thing I can ever bear to dissect, even just the word dissect is bad enough. XP I cut a skunk cabbage in half, and everyone's like "man that's so stinky!" (especially the moms) but I'm so used to it it almost smells good to me. XD What was REALLY stinky today though, was when Kenny found a big dead bird, and we were chasing him around, trying to get it away from him, but he wouldn't let me get close enough to even see exactly what it was. It could have been one of the neighbors' chickens or something, Idk. It stunk SO BAD!!! >.< Then he went and rolled in it, and so we sprayed him with the hose. Dogs can do the most unbeleivably disgusting things. XP Oh, yes, and I almost forgot; I found some TOTALLY EPIC music!!! (in case I haven't already said that XP) It's not exactly a soundtrack, but just inspired by The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck. Dreamtime is so awesome with the didgeridoo and everything! Cold Heart of the Klondike and The Last Sled made me nearly cry. Well, yeah, I cry every time I read Hearts of the Yukon, that ending is just so..... Idk. SAD. But at the same time, if you think about it, if he had opened that letter, Donald would never exist!!! That's kinda bizarre to think about. I'm actually thinking about writing a fanfic where Donald travels back in time and helps Uncle Scrooge save his sled, not realizing who it is, and when he returns to the present, he finds out that because he did that, he never existed and he's fading away. So yeah. If you're interested in hearing the music, click on the smiley face.:) XD
Well I don't have much time to write this tonight, because I've already been on the computer too much today. :P But, I got a lot done! I started Defenders of Redwall, actually I have had it started for a while, I just finally decided I couldn't wait any longer to publish it. ;D So, go check it out if you have time! :)
Wow, art requests are pouring in almost faster than I can take them (but not quite XD) on HTTYD wiki!!! I made a blog post saying that I would draw dragons, thinking that I would get a couple of people maybe, but I've been busy drawing ever since I made that post! :D Almost every night, I'm sitting on the couch with the laptop, listening to music and working on a request! O.o The laptop is kinda frustrating, though, cause the internet on it is so stinkin' slow, but I have to use it at night because my mom uses the desktop. :P But of course, I'm never really too busy to take another request, so if you have anything, let me know! ;) Oh, yeah, I found that Scrooge music on Youtube, seperate tracks, (unlike the other one) and it has a really cool video!!! It's the comics, but it's showing it kinda like a movie. It's soo awesome!!!!! XD For some weird reason, I suddenly want to draw Dagru without his helmet on. Should he have cute floppy hair or sticking straight up hair? Hmm...
Yaassss!!!!! I'm going to write the script for a Kung Fu Panda episode!!! Of course, it is just a fan series. But it's still awesome!!! It's actually a crossover with KFP and Doctor Who. I know, that sounds weird, but it's awesome for one thing because it's completely approppriate! No cussing or too much violence or anything, nice and clean. It's gonna be great working on this! :) I don't know anything about Doctor Who, but I'll be doing an episode that focuses on the Furious Five, so the creator of the show will handle that bit. Anyways, that's the exiting news of the day. Also, last night I found a whole playlist of RW songs on Youtube! And stayed up past lights out time listening to it! XD
Man I'm so tired cause so much happened today so I have a lot to write about but I'm too tired... that needs commazzzzzzzzz... But I got a gray tabby that I named Tsarmina. And my brother got a ginger cat that he named Timballisto. And for once I was actually able to eat just enough and not too much. I almost always eat too much. :P I can't think of anything else really, I'm so pooped. Snork murk skiffer porkchops in a muddle.... go lettuce leaves your lizardzzzzzzzz....
I'm still really tired today. During restime, I could have almost fallen asleep if we didn't have RW music playing. I never actually fall asleep during the day, unless I'm sick. But I wasn't too tired to "Haharr" in Tilly the Wild. XD That's one of our favorites. I just finished off a drawing book! ;P Hopefully these last two will last me until my birthday.
Today was really nice and sunny. We went down to the pond. Actually, though, I have to admit I spent a rather large part of the morning playing Mickey Mouse games. XD I found a really good House of Mouse one where you have to help Goofy wait on customers, Pluto keep Pete away, Mickey help keep people happy, Daisy greet people, and Donald clean up any mess Pete might make, all at the same time. It's really busy, but once you get into the swing of things it's not that hard really. There's also one where you play as Max and have to park the cars. I cracked up every time I smashed a car into a wall or curb cause the crunch is so funny for some reason. But then I got Timon's car hopelessly stuck on the corner of the sidewalk and could not get it off. XP And there was a pirate one that I couldn't get past the last level and the music was driving me nuts!!! So yeah.
I don't think I have much time to do this tonight. It was really sunny and warm and beautiful today, but I was really depressed for like no reason. I just do that sometimes. I didn't want to eat, or go outside, play with the dog or chicks, and definetly not do math. But eventually I was happy once I forced myself to go down to the creek. ;P last night, I found a couple pages from Don Rosa stories that I haven't read yet. This one , I was like O.O !!!!!!!!!!!!!! SHE DID IT TO HIM AGAIN!!!!! XP And when I saw this one , I thought "who is that..." and then I saw, and went "MATILDA?!?!" :O :O :O I NEED MORE DON ROSA!!!!!! So yeah. Gotta go now. :P
Today was beautiful again! ^^ We went down to the creek, messed around, and other stuff. We finally got the Oregon Grape flowers mom was wanting. They're really pretty! Have you ever been on a swing for a solid half hour? It's hard to walk straight afterwards. XD I drew an entire page of Huey, Dewey, and Louies. Now I'm working on a page of Uncle Scrooge. I'm gonna have to practice a lot if I want to draw comics. ;)
Great Hambones! It was so warm today that when we went down to the creek, I put on my swimming shorts! And I'm glad I did, but I really should have put on my swimming shirt too. Afterwards I couldn't find a dry shirt, so I'm still wearing my damp dark green one right now. XP We worked on a new swimming hole, farther up the creek than our usual one. It's about waist deep in some parts so far. We also found some nice sticky clay-mud in there. We tried to teach Kenny to swim, but he wouldn't get in the water. XP Our regular swimming hole is about up to my armpits, and it gets deeper every summer, as we dive down and bring up rocks. Of course, it's not exactly swimming time yet, but with a hyper-active puppy around, you're gonna get pretty wet. ;P Oh, and this morning, I woke up, and Spikes/Tuff was watching me and giggling, and I was like "What..." and then the creepy head (like from a dummy in a store or something) that we like to mess with came down and clonked me on the head. And he yelled "LOKIED!!!" I guess I was supposed to wake up, see it, and be startled. But I just grabbed her by the hair and threw her on the floor. XD XD Berk's Grapevine did something really funny today, replacing every word 'dragon' with 'spud'. :D Inside joke. You'll only get it if you're a Dragon fan, sorry. ;D And on KFP wiki... well, that took me a minute.
I'm all tired out now. Dad helped us work on building our Dragon's Edge. We already had the four walls, and today we got on the roof. The board we used for the roof was stinkin' heavy!!! My arm is hurting from hammering and sawing. Maybe sometime I could show you guys some pics of it. :) My older brother got sick, and I'm really really hoping I don't get it!!! :P I've been washing my hands, using the other bathroom, and praying. Ack. :P
Well, |I'm not sick yet. Whew. XP The Edge is pretty muchly finished now. ^^ It's so severly cool!!! This new keyboard will take some getting used to. Tuff spilled milk on our other one, so we got a new one on the way to church today.
Today was rainy... the Edge did not stay very dry. -_- Didn't really do much, though I did get two dragon art requests done at restime. O.o TWO!!! And I helped with the kombucha. That scoby is so awesomely disgusting. :D But it was a good batch. Nice and fizzy, like root beer. I held my tongue in it as long as I could. XD
We started painting the walls on the inside of the Edge. I did some cool designs and Windshear, and Tuff painted a Stormcutter. Coolness. B) This morning mom took the new keyboard back to the store because the letters were not visible enough. But now we got a new one, with HUGE LETTERS. For like old people. So the whole morning, I DID NOT HAVE A KEYBOARD!!!!! XP It was hard, but I managed to survive.
Didn't do much today that is really worth talking about. Meh. :P
Woah, it got like 80 degrees today!!! :o Guess we're having another early summer... very early, that is. XD I dunked my whole head in the creek, and got the rest of me pretty wet too. Me and Spikes had a picnic lunch thingy down by the pond. Without Kenny, of course. If Kenny was there, he would totally try to eat all our food and slobber all over everything. XP But afterwards, we went and played with him. We also got 9 salamanders in a bucket. I almost caught a couple of frogs, but the little stinkys like to slip outa my paws at the last possible second and make me grab a bunch of slimy algae instead. :P
Hot again. B) At restime I got about .. mmm, two pages written of Defenders. I'm having a really hard time with this stupid writer's block. I've written several versions of chapter one now, but I still can't get it right! I just don't know how to start it out!!! Argh!!! >:(
This morning was misty and a bit cold, but by the afternoon it was warmer again. My chicken pooped on my head. At least I was wearing my hat. XP Don't ask why I had a chicken on my head. XD jk. You can ask, if you really want to know more details... I can't think of what else I did today, and anyway i need to go. :P
I can't really think of what I did this morning for some reason. XP At church today, I was playing on my friend's Ipod for so long my hand fell asleep! XD Okay, so I got tired of doing the Dragon quote of the day for some reason, so from now on, it's a surprise! Click on the date and you may get a picture, video, music, article, or any random thing! ;D About today's: I really have no idea what that is, or what is going on. It's just a part of a page I found on Google Images. XD
This evening we watched the Legends of Awesomeness episode The Spirit Orbs of Master Ding. That one was kinda scary. I hate it when anything like that happens to Po or the Furious Five. :( I really hated when they became Jombies in the third movie. DX Today wasn't really very interesting, though we did get really wild with the dog. We were all rolling around on the ground and stuff. XD
Hmm, what did I do today?? Oh yeah, I got what I have so far of DoR typed and published. It's weird, I type for two hours, think, "Wow, I got a lot done!" then look at what I just typed and go "Wha?! That doesn't look like very much at all!!!" XP I drew a really funny picture of Dagur where he was messing around with Inferno, and got an explosion in his face. I'm gonna make it into a comic strip. XD
It was cold and rainy pretty muchly all day. :P Yay, soup tonight!!!!! :D ^^ <3
We got a new camera today!!! Woooohoooooo!!! It's for me and Spikes to share, actually. It's a bright blue Canon. Like the color even matters. XD We spent most of the afternoon taking pictures and videos of mostly Kenny and flowers. Oh, and we found out that Kenny had chewed up the bear skull. >:P It was not in a safe place. For dinner we had make-yer-own pizza bread thingamabobs. Yuuuuuummmmm!!!!! :D
Meh. XP Edit: :O I just saw a new video and it reveals that the thing on Heather's belt is a Dragon Eye lens! Yaass!!! Maybe we'll find a baby Red Death! Or a baby Skrill!!! O.o I'm so exited I'm shaking a little. I always do that when I get news about Race to the Edge. XD
At church, after dinner, we had a girls' cardmaking thing. It was fun. :) Guess what I made; a Toothless pop-up card! Of course. XD Everyone was going "Awwww, that's so cute!!!" ;D I'm so tired the other three I made were just random hearts and stuff.
I dunked myself in the creek all the way today. It felt really good. I also got some DoR written. It can be really hard for me to write sometimes, but when I'm finished I always feel like I finally accomplished something, and it feels great. ;)
Spikes dropped his gum when he was sitting on the fence, and Kenny went and ate it right up! Lol XD We also found a garter snake and showed it to Kenny, but he like freaked out. It was funny. :D There was a HUGE swarm of bees, but I already told about that. ;)
Finally something happened today! :D There was a thunderstorm! It was EPIC!!!!! ^^ Me and Spikes were just coming up from swimming in the creek, and we laid down in the pasture to watch the lightning. Even when it started raining, we were out there watching it, me in my tanktop and shorts. XD But then when it got right over the house, we finally went inside. Then a few minutes later, we were inside watching The Monkees on the computer, and one huge boom of thunder shook the entire house!!! O.O It was AWESOME!!!!! I love thunderstorms. Can you tell? XP My older brother said he almost got hit by some lightning when he was on his way home on his dirtbike! :o And when I was chasing Sif around the chicken yard, there was like lightning all around me! BD I had been planning to do some painting at the Edge after swimming, but so much for that! Oh yeah, when we were at the creek, we took a 'bath'. ;) We were scrubbing ourselves with sand. XD It hurts, but it feels great.
I'm ready to kill somebody right now. I tried to do some watercolor painting today. My picture of Dagru turned out pretty good, actually, and I'm waiting for it to finish drying so I can scan and upload it. Then I did a really cool sillouhette picture of Toothless. It was so perfect, but then when I picked it up to move it, the black ran everywhere!!!!! >:( Is it any wonder that I almost never do watercolors?!?! DX< I'm working on one of Dewrose now. I got super mad when I finished the perfect sketch and then dripped red paint all over it!!! Well, I think I've got it fixed good enough now. Also the brown isn't working, so I'll have to get a different one. How ironic that I was painting Dewrose and was in a very Dewrose-y mood. :P After this, I don't think I will EVER want to do watercolors again. But, of course, knowing me, and having just said that, I will try it again sometime. >.<
Didn't really do much today that's worth talking about, so why am I even doing this. ;P
Me and my dad went shopping today and got me some new jeans. I won't even tell you how bad my other ones are. ;P We also went to Cash and Carry, and we couldn't find tater tots, so we had to go into the big freezer room. I was all sweaty and kinda hot, so when I came out I think I had icicles in my armpits. XD We found tater tots in there, but it was a HUGE box, so we were just like "nevermind..." XD
Well today was pretty rainy. :P At church I couldn't think of what to draw. I started a couple things, but I just got so frustrated with them I started to really live up to the name Dagur suggested giving me: Heather the Unhinged. XP I'm not kidding, it drives me berserk when I don't have anything to draw. I almost had to get up and go into the bathroom to wham my head on the wall. But after dinner, we made cards again, (I made another really cute Toothless one XD) and my friend showed me videos of her karate tournament, which helped to restore my sanity a bit. Then just now me and Spikes were playing C.H.R.O.M.E. missions. Our version is kinda see-how-many-bad-guys-you-can-kill. (while also staying alive and making it to the end) XD One of us drives, which is more exiting, and the other controls the weapons, which is more boring because all you do is sit there and hold the machine guns key.
Ugghhh, I really want to write more on Defenders, but I'm stuck!!! >.< I'll try again tonight. >:P
I haven't written any more Defenders still, but I am working on a really cool picture for it, with plenty of blood!!! XD I was trying to do a sketch of Dagru throwing one of his knives, but I was having trouble with it, so we got out the throwing knives and practiced. I'm terrible at it. XP The knives hardly ever stick in the target, (though I think it's the stump's fault) they usually bounce off or if they do stick, they stick handle first. >.< I need to watch that video that we have again. Doing that did help me with the drawing, though. ;) Also, this morning, I started a Salmonberry Pond wiki!!! :D You can check it out here if ya want! ;)
I finished my watercolor painting of Dewrose today. I think it really did work better doing it in the house, sitting next to the stove, because then I don't have to move it and it dries faster. ;) Didn't really do anything else very exiting today. ;P
Great. Now I have something to write about. >:P This afternoon, Kenny wandered away from us, as usual, but when we came up to the house looking for him, I found him with a chicken in his mouth!!!!! It was a rooster, obviously one of the neighbor's, because ours are still little and are enclosed. Ackk!!! Probably tomorrow we'll go over and apologize and whatever we need to do. I feel so bad. :( I got him in the goatyard, then with help from mom I got the chicken away from him and buried it in the bushes on the other side of the fence. XP From now on I guess we're gonna have to have him on a leash. Dogs can be so... frustrating. >:P But no matter what he does, I always still love him. ;) Then after that incedent, me and Spikes came inside and did some acrylic painting. :)
Well, of course once I start painting, then Spikes wants to paint, and then of course mom does too! XD So we painted for school today. ;) We're doing (haven't finished yet) Mt Bachelor. I've been there, that's where I went on a ski lift for the first time in my life. Mine doesn't look much like a mountain yet. ;P We also watched a Bob Ross episode on Youtube. He. is. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. It really does seem li8ke he's magic. He just starts with a totally blank canvas, takes a couple brushes and some paint, and in half and hour he has a painting that looks really 3d. Literally. If you haven't seen him paint, you totally need to go on Youtube and look up The Joy of Painting. Like right now. XD Also, we learned that he used to be a drill sergeant, and when he left, he said he never wanted to yell at anyone again. No wonder he always talks so quietly. He's pretty funny, too. He's always going, "We'll just put a happy little tree who lives up here, and his happy little friend the bush lives down here," and stuff like that. Lol. XD
I have been getting a lot written on Defenders today!!! ^^ I feel so impatient to get to the part where Dagru comes in. XP But I keep telling myself, "Patience, Heather, patience, the time will come..." *bwahahahahaha!!!* Jk. Well, every time I write some more, I get closer to this long awaited chapter. ;P I'm also trying to work on ideas for my rwerite of the Rogue Crew. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. ;)
Wow, its May already!!! Today Spikes was on the worship team at church for the first time! :D He did great. ;) I have an awesome new idea for a Hank the Cowdog fanfic. It's going to be about Hank and Missy's son! Yeah, in my fanfic, he will have married Missy, and I'm thinking maybe ol' Cheif Gut has died and now guess who is the cheif!!! O.o It'll be really scary with Scraunch as the Cheif. XS I still don't have a name for my OC yet, though. Oh, and maybe even Beulah and Plato have kids now. What would Hank think of that? XP
It was nice and hot today, but I didn't quite go all the way into the creek. Not that hot. ;P I did work on Defenders today, but only got two pages. I'll probably have enough to update by tomorrow though. We're getting closer to the fun part!!! XD
Well, I finished writing chapter 4 last night! I was listening to the HTTYD2 soundtrack, and writing that, and it was a hot night, so by 11:20, when I finally stopped, I was all sweaty. XD Then today I typed it in, as you can see. ;) I was listening to KFP while typing, so I was all sweaty again! XP Lol.
This morning we had our Viking friends over!!! ^^ We had tons of fun of course. :) We even played Slamwich. That game is CARAZYYY when played by Vikings. Usually it's just me, Tuff, and dad, but when all five of us played it, it was awesome insaneness. XD XD Then after that, when I was taking Kenny out on the leash, (we have to keep him on it now, ever since that chicken incedent :( ) I decided we should run down the hill to the pond, so we did, but the extendable leash ran out of leash, and I can't keep up with that little rocket, and he dragged me down the rest of the way on the wet grass! My whole side was all wet and coverted in mowed grass, and my arm hurt so much I couldn't hold onto the leash. It was pretty funny for some reason though. XD
Uhhhhhh.... what did we do today??? ._. *clueless* I worked on Defenders a bit... drew two dragons during restime... listened to Newsboys and Jonathan Park... watched a Darkwing Duck episode, called When Aliens Collide... watched a video about glass blowing.... and I can't really think of anything else. XP
Today Burning Midnight was released, and I've already found a few pages here and there! o.o It looks awesome!!!!! The art is great, at least compared to the art of the other httyd comic books. ;P I spent most of this afternoon outside reading our new Mickey Mouse book, March of the Zombies, with Spikes. I still haven't gotten to the story yet that gives the volume its name... XS It was free comic book dat today, if I had known that earlier, maybe we could have gotten Burning Midnight!!! >:(
At church today, Greg Harris preached!! I love it when he preaches. So awesome!!! ^^ After church, we went and got some Chinese food!!! YUUMMMMMM!!!! That is like the best. ;) It was mom's choice, obviously. I'm pretty sure we're going to that resteraunt for my birthday in a few months too, cause my birthday will (hopefully) be KFP themed. I'll wear my severly cool Chinese shirt. I'm probably forgetting something to write here, and, knowing me, I'll probably remember it as soon as I get off the computer. >.< Whateves.
Spikes' wrist is still hurting, from when he hurt it on Saturday. It isn't broken, or we would know, but maybe it's sprained or something. :P I didn't really do much today, besides school and regular stuff like that of course. ;P
At restime today we listened to The Christmas Turkey Disaster. Part of it at least. Up to the part where Hank throws up. XD Ugh, I don't think we did anything else interesting topday. Well, we did start watching Kung Fu Panda again. Now that we own it, we can watch it as much as we want!!! ^^ I found it on the giveaway table at church a couple weeks ago. ;)
It was nice and kinda hot today, so we went down to the creek, and went way down stream. (on the neighbor's property, but nevermind, they'll never know. XD) We went all the way to an old logging bridge that's there, it's 5 or 6 huge logs all tied together with metal cables, and it's so old it's covered in plants, so when you're on top, you can't even really tell you're on a bridge at all. I don't think it would hold up a car anymore, let alone a logging truck. Also this morning we went to the feed store to get chicken food. I don't usually like to go with mom just to run a quick errand into town, but this is different, there's so many animals at the feed store!!! ^^ There's two cats, a rabbits, some horses, and lots of chickens. It's great, though we were only there for a few minutes. ;)
At the creek this afternoon, I made some paint with orange clay, and me and Spikes painted ferret masks on each other. When it dried, it felt like I had a piece of cardboard glued to my face. XP It was kinda weird. I got quite a good chunk of Defenders written during restime, as you can see. ;)
This afternoon a guy came with his tractor and tilled the garden for us. That was waay faster than when dad does it with the rototiller!!! XP Then after school, Spikes and me went swimming in the pond. As I was passing the island on the raft, Kenny hopped on and put it off balance, and I ended up sitting down on the bottom of the pond with the water up to my neck and the dog sitting on my lap!!! XD It felt reeeeaally good! :) We also pulled out the Brown Trout, (the raft we built ourselves with a pallete and some foam) and sculled all the algae off her. It's not much of a boat, but it's enough to have fun with and get across the pond dry! ;D
We planted potatoes in the drizzle, as well as redoing the grass path down the middle of the garden. I also found out a teeny bit more about season 4 of Dragons; just that Heather will possibly have her own hut on the Edge, (yaaaayyy!!! ^^) there will be a new flightless dragon, and the release date is possibly June 24th.
Stupid brain just went blank. Maybe because I didn't really do much today. XP It was really wierd, though, I kept stuttering more than usual, for no reason at all. What the heck. >.<
Yaayyy we're going to the beach tomorrow!!! ^^ I hope it doesn't rain too much. :P
Well we did go to the beach, but it rained!!! XP It was just a sort of a drizzle, but it was wet, and then when the wind started to pick up, I got freezing, and my pants were all wet because one wave went farther up than I was expecting. But we still had fun! A little rain doesn't stop Vikings!!! ;D I'm too exhausted to write more about it right now, though. :P
So yeah, yesterday, all four of me paws were all cut up from the barnacles on the rocks, and when I went into the salt water with all those cuts... yeah, it stung a little. But it felt great. XD I also climbed the cliffs, and there's a green clay there that I used to make paint, and painted a big green heart on a rock for mom. :D There's a small cave there too, it actually goes right through a big spur of rock and to a little cove on the other side, so I went through it, and for some reason was pretending I was Valka, going into the Dragon Sanctuary. I almost expected to find a beached Scauldron or Seashocker there. ;P Me and Spikes couldn't help singing, "Ho barnacles, binnacles, bungtops and BLOOOOOD!!!" (We like to do the last word really loudly.) XD Afterwards, we went and got pizza for dinner, super early, (like 4) cause we didn't know what else to do. XP At one of the shops, there were some stuffed animal puppies that I tooootally fell in love with!!!! They're all so beautiful, especially the border collie and the husky. I wanted them sooo much!!! XS So, even though it was raining the entire time, (actually about half the time I didn't even notice it) we all still had fun. ;) Didn't do much today, though, except curl up in my bed, trying to get some more rest. :P
Today I read the first Ranger's Apprentice book. It was AWESOME!!! :D Those Kalkaras were SCARY. O.o Now I have to read the rest. ;)
Yaaayy it's confirmed! June 24th!!! *dances happily* XD I started the next Ranger's Apprentice book today. Think I'm addicted to this series already. :D
I haven't been keeping up with this very well lately. Whatever. There hasn't been much to write about, so I just figger I might as well not do it. ;P I worked on archery today. And made a map for DoR. I'm just about to scan it right now. :)
Today was pretty warm, at least enough to go swimming in the pond. I didn't quite get all the way in though. Kenny was sitting nearby, chewing on a stick, then a few minutes later he was making strange hacking sounds and pawing at his mouth. He wouldn't hold still, but we finally saw that he had a piece of a stick jammed between his teeth on the roof of his mouth. I finally managed to get him in aheadlock and yanked the stick out. It was stuck in there really tight, and it was all slippery, so it was hard to get a grip on. But I got it, and then he was pefectly fine. :)
Had to go to my brother's guitar recital today, which took basically all day. :P At least this time it wasn't as boring because I got the job of videoing it. Felt very professinial with the nice video camera and tripod and everything. XD It got to 100 degrees in the shade, so afterwards we went and got ice cream. :) Then as soon as we got home, we changed into our swimming clothes and literally jumped in the pond. But I wore myself out so stinkin much I could barely doggy paddle. :P Then we had burritos, that made me turn into a dragon because dad put two packets of spicy seasoning into the meat instead of one. :D Now I think I'll go*zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.........*
We were gone all day in The Dalles. YAAASS I finally got to see my friend who I haven't seen in literally two years!!! <3 Even though it was only for a few hours. But of course it was worth it. ^^ Now I'm pooped out again. *falls asleep* No I actually could not fall asleep right now. I'm listening to Try Everything over and over. I haven't gotten tired of it yet... XD
I messed up tonight I lost another fight Lost to myself but I'll just start again I keep falling down I keep on hitting the ground But I always get up now to see what’s next Birds don’t just fly They fall down and get up Nobody learns without getting it wrong
I won’t give up, no I won’t give in Till I reach the end And then I'll start again No I won't leave I want to try everything I want to try even though I could fail I won't give up, no I won't give in Till I reach the end And then I'll start again No I won’t leave I want to try everything I want to try even though I could fail
Oh oh oh oh Try everything Oh oh oh oh Try everything Oh oh oh oh Try everything Oh oh oh oh
So today we went and did, um, put put golf or whatever it's called. ;P It was a really cool place, with black lights. There was also a "volcano" that "erupted" every once in a while. Once it happened while we were inside it and my ears were ringing for a while afterward. It was tricky for me because the first time I hit the ball, it went flying almost across the room. XP I use the club more like a Skandian with a battleaxe. By the last... thingy... whatever it's called, level? I was getting kinda tired and maybe a bit overconfident because I have good aim and could make a lot of the shots that no one else could and in one try. The par thingummy was 4, but I looked at it and went, "Pffft, I can make that in one easily!" Then when I tried, it went flying way off course and hit a guy in the foot! XD It took me several tries to finally get it. :P But in the end, I did win. :D
This afternoon our whole family went to a glass-blowing place. It was really cool!!! There were all kinds of AMAZING glass things there, and I took pictures of like all of them! I'm still really tired. :P
YAAAAAAYYY!!!!! After 10/11 years, I finally, at last, have a (well deserved) room of my own!!!!!!!!!! ^.^ I'm so happy!!!!! *

Just watched To Heather or Not to Heather today, (don't ask about the title... ;P) and man for some reason I am embarressed to be Heather right now. XP I mean, seriously?!?! Feather?! DX Nooo, I don't like.... well, it's not that I dislike Fishlegs, I just don't like him that much, and definetly do not want to ship him with Heather. >:( It's not just because I'm Heather, even if I wasn't, I wouldn't really ship her with Fishface, so this is not totally a personal thing. :P I just... well it might sound crazy, but I LOVE SNOTLOUT!!! Come on, I know he can be annoying, but he's SO FUNNY!!! SNEATHER!!!!! SNEATHER!!!!! SNEATHEERRRR!!!!! .... Okay, sorry about that, I just had to get it out somewhere, and I'm still staying off the Grapevine right now, so I can't do it there, and I didn't want to fill up the Mess Hall with this so I just put it here. ;D Also we saw Stryke Out, and that one was AWESOME!!! :D I knew Toothless would smoke that Triple Stryke, but I'm glad he spared his life, cause now they have a new friend. And he's actually pretty cute! ^^ I was hoping somebody would beat up Ryker, but not yet. ;P And when Astrid came and found Hiccup in the holding area of the arena, I hoped she would get really angry about him being chained up, and smash the chain with her axe. Oh well, if she did do that, we just didn't see it. ;P Anywho...... today was pretty hot and we went swimming in the pool. :D
