Christmas Star

The other day I went to my favorite store in the world.


Oooooooh, I could never get sick of this place.

They have the best deals,
the cutest furniture,
the most wonderful Swedish Meatballs,
and the BEST frozen yogurt ever!

They had some nice Christmas decorations up, and there was one that caught my eye.
I bought this little beauty.


Now wasn't that a great steal?
I love it. It hangs in my bedroom, from my ceiling.

I think I'll leave it up year-round.

As seen on TV

Last night was our annual Taco Amigo Christmas Party.

Every year, we have a white elephant gift exchange.

This year this is what I got:

You've heard of the double bumpit i'm sure.... but what about the TRIPLE bumpit?

...and then I turned into a stegosaurus:

And now, my liking for bumpits has increased ten-fold.

Best X-mas tunes EVER

These Christmas albums remind me of my childhood... We would break out the Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving, bast these tunes, and have a grand old time while putting up the decorations.

  1. Dolly Parton -(make sure you listen to the song Christmas to Remeber) Listen to it here.
  2. The Osmond Family Christmas
  3. Carpenters Christmas
  4. Celine Dion Christmas
  5. Christmas with The Chipmunks
  6. John Denver Christmas (please please PLEASE listen to this song right now. You'll love it!)
  7. The Muppet's Christmas Carrol
  8. White Christmas Album

That about sums it up. Oh man, I just can not get enough of these songs this time of year. I love them. (:

read with a british accent

"It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad."

-C.S. Lewis

And that's how I remember to draw a basketball hoop.

Tonight was a very educational night.

I went to Jordan Makin's House.

(You can read his blog here.)

Anyway.. I learned a lot from Jordan tonight.

1. He taught me everything there is to know about basketball.

You know.. about what the Point Guards, Shooting Guards, Small Forwards, Power Forwards, and Center Players do. After all, I am the Assistant Coach this year for the A-Star team, Sick Nasty. I should probably know a little bit about which individual person should do. I even went to the Draft and helped pick teammates. How's that for authoritative?

2. I learned how to remember to draw a Basketball Hoop.

First, you draw some water. Then you draw a dolphin leaping out of the water. Now, this dolphin's face is slightly askew. You see, a truck hit him, and that is why his snout is shaped like a square. His jaw is shaped like a boulder because when he was younger, he tried swallowing a boulder and it permanently shaped his jaw that way. Because of this dolphin's abnormalities, he drools kind of a lot. And he always eats chex, so make sure to get chex in his drool.

And that's how I remember to draw a basket ball hoop.

3. How to draw a helicopter.

First you draw an apple (with a stem) then you take a square-like bite out of the apple. Draw a little worm inside of the bite and extend his tail. Then draw two sideways pizza's from the stem. Add toppings. And a crust.

And that's how I remember to draw a helicopter.

4. I learned the ground-breaking technique in drawing Santa Claus.

First you draw a sideways seal. Then you draw his best friend seal holding a basketball with his tail. Now, these two seals are sitting on a rock... with strange markings, and two holes in it. Then you can't forget the waterfall coming out both ends of the rock!

And that's how I remember to draw Santa Claus.

5. How to draw an elf.

First you are going to draw a penguin. To do this you will need to start off by drawing the shape of a pear. Then draw his white fur in the shape of a nose. Now this little eyes. And... this penguin doesn't have a beak. But it does have an ocean on top of its head, with a sharks fin coming out of the ocean. Then you are going to draw another penguin. The white fur on this one is shaped like a bow-tie. And his fins are muscly.

And that's how I remember to draw an elf.

I also learned:

6. How to draw a butterfly.

7. How to draw a reindeer.

8. How to remember to draw a car.

9. How to remember to draw a RITZ cracker box.


If you would like drawing lessons, please contact Jordan. I am sure that he would be more than willing to help you learn how to remember to draw just about anything.
