Time to update! This weekend was an eventful one. ^____^
- Thursday July 3rd
After summer school and yum cha, I picked up Debra and we went to Nicole's new house. It was nice and big. After a tour, we made some hot dogs and enjoyed a picnic in her backyard while chit-chattin. Then, we felt the urge to move so we went outside and walked ALL the way to Albertson's. After wandering around and cooling down, bought some s'mores ingredients and rushed home. In our earnestness, we took a street that turned instead of going straight and we had to walk a terribly long way back to her house. It was TORTURE!!! >_<" Well, actually at the end, it was pretty funny when Nicole started becoming delirious. XD And when Debra had to leave, the chocolate of Nicole's s'more was dripping down her hand and her "OH NOSIES!" caused everyone from her to the door to turn and stare at her. LOL.
- Friday July 4th
Woke up at like 7 to go to the San Gabriel July 4th Celebration and Kids Parade. Cut watermelons. Well, actually I couldn't because of my fear of knives, but me and Jackie arranged the slices on trays. XP Crazy girl Carolyn freaked me out with her knife-wielding skills! Waving it around and shrieking, my goodness. Then, 2 accidents with Nicole and Carmen both cutting themselves. O_O *heart attack* As the event started, we decided to walk around. LOL. There was the incident with Nicole and the Uncle Sam on stilts. Even though he turned around and walked away when she was planning to take a picture of him, she did
wave her flip-flop in anger at him. I mean, cmon, that is just unforgivable, Nicole. -__- Then we stopped by the sno-cone booth and the balloon lady who made us flower bracelets! They were lovely. *_* We saw lots of little dogs, but I was unable to pet any. :
( There were also a bunch of Asian protesters there complaining about Councilmember Albert Huang who supposedly stole money from the city. D: D: D: I am very disappointed; he gave me advice about life! Well, aside from that, the rest of the thing was fun. Then, Nicole took me home in the afternoon and I took a shower because I felt like a dirty beast. Afterwards, I convinced my mom to get a haircut because she really needed one so we drove around looking for open salons. After that, we went around Temple City, going to Rite Aid and 99 Cents buying plants and hair dye. Went home and ate dinner. At 8:30, my neighbor directed my mom to her friend's house in Monterey Park to watch fireworks. We went up and down many hills and I was afraid our car couldn't handle it! ;___; The guy's house was on a hill and I constantly felt like I was gonna slide off the earth, but it was cool being so high. The view was nice and since I broke the camera (;_____;) I had to use my cellie. They turned out okay, I guess.
- Saturday July 5th
Got woken up at 9 because my dad needed help emailing something. -____-; Then, since I was up, my mom rallied me and Grace to go on a walk so we walked all the way to Smith Park and around to our old house and back. You know, walks in the summer should either be early morning or evening because that was torture. >___<" After that, yum cha at Triumphal Palace where we saw a cockroach! EEK. It crawled into the curtains and we told the manager, who took a napkin and tried to catch it. Tsk tsk. Well, then we went to Costco and Best Buy, where I had a hard time deciding between Harvest Moon DS Cute and Cooking Mama 2. Unfortunately, ended up getting neither. D; Went home and fell asleep. Then, my mom woke me up at 4:30 because she wanted to look at an Open House on Broadway which was ending at 5. @_@ It was a niiiiice Italian-style townhouse with high ceilings and big windows. The only one I liked was the front one though, cause it was so big. The middle ones faced each other--not as cool.
- Sunday July 6th
Work day. Finished homework. Uploaded half a thousand pictures, messed around with my phone. Lounged around.
