Let the games begin!

Well, it's October and that can only mean one thing in the Johnson home - prank wars! About 3 or 4 years ago my mom bought this huge plastic skeleton face that glows in the dark. Well I came home one night and it was hanging on the basement door. That mask always gave me the pee shivers so one night I took it down and hid it. My mom was less than thrilled. She searched the house, found it, and attached it to my mirror in the bathroom. The next morning I walked in and screamed when I saw it - it wasn't funny. So the war began. I took the mask and hid it in her shower, she then hid it in my closet and it just kept continuing.

So now I know every October when the Halloween decorations come out, that I need to be on my guard. My best spot to date was when I hid it in the washer and when she opened the washer door the skeleton face popped out. I heard her scream that time and it was oddly soothing to my ears.

My insignificant 6

6 Insignificant Things About Me

Well Stacy tagged me, so here are 6 insignificant things about me that some of you didn’t know about till now

1. I hate the site of chewed gum! You know how people put their gum on their plate while they eat dinner? Well the site of that makes me want to gag. I’d rather buy that person a whole pack of gum then look at it on their plate.

2. I have broken my left arm twice –two summers in a row and at the same person’s house.

3.I can’t pee if anyone is within a ten foot radius of me. So no groups of girls going to bathroom together and I need to be in public restrooms completely alone or else it’s a waste of my time.

4.I’m a monster! I have abnormally small hands (and according to Emily, small feet). I’ve been told several times that my hands are unusually small. I can’t hold a football and have a hard time with a basketball. I get cramps using chopsticks and I drop things all the time. One of the best examples of this (which is already in an earlier post) is when Emily was talking to one of her friends and discovered that he went to Murray High just like I did. When Emily asked if he knew me, his response was “They girl with brown hair and really small hands? Yeah, I know her.” *Sigh*….

5.On Halloween, I favor the kids based on their costume. If they are dressed as Harry Potter they get at least 5-6 extra pieces of candy. I also favor other costumes like Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Disney Princesses. But I also give crappy candy if I don’t approve of the costume. We used to get a bunch of kids between the ages of 13-16 wearing their football jersey top and then rollerblading from house to house. They usually get the gross old lady candy like Werthers, Bit O Honey, etc.

6.I buy books when I’m bored and sad. If I don’t have anything to do on a weekend, I go book shopping. If I’ve had a bad day, I console myself with a book. If I’ve never heard anything about the book, but it just sounds interesting or I like the cover art work, I’ll buy the book. This was fine till I started running out of book shelf space. Now my night stands and dressers are holding stacks of books.

Ok, I now tag the following people to do the same on their website:
Charity & Dean, Julie & Dave, Jill & Justin, Kristin, Tiffany, Emily, Mega Death!, Kathryn, Jenny, Steph, Fox, Haley, Corine, Rachel, Brooke, Michelle White, Michelle Blackham, Carrie, Tasha, Nicole… that’s all I can think of for now. I know a few of you don’t have blogs, but I still want you to email me your list.

Here’s another interesting fact – half of these people don’t even know that I have a blog so I can’t guarantee they’ll get this message. So if you read this blog (all 2 of you – thanks mom & dad!) please feel free to participate!
