I'm not sure who said that originally, but Erin told it to me. :)
Today I went to the Kerry-Edwards headquarters and got buttons and lawn signs and stuff with my mom. We signed up to volunteer as well, and our first time is tomorrow from 1-4 right around the corner from our house. I'm excited about it. Service hours and supporting the (hopefully) next president of this country all at once!
I babysat tonight for about 5 hours for a seven and a half year old and a twelve year old. They were pretty good, actually. I played Monopoly and got my ass kicked by the 7-year-old. I am so serious, and semi-ashamed. There I was, sitting on the kitchen floor with this kid, watching him buy pretty much every property he landed on, figuring I was going to have to figure out some way to let him win because eventually he'd run out of money. Well, I don't know what happened, but suddenly I owed him two hundred dollars and only had one hundred and eighty to my name. I lost. Maybe it's because I kept getting sent to jail. When I told his mom, she looked at me incredulously and said, "Really?" like I was lying to her because he was there and I didn't want to say I let him win. I assured her I was dead serious and that he'd kicked my butt fair and square. I'm not sure if she wound up believing me or not. We also watched The Lizzie McGuire Movie, which I'd never seen. It was good, but I thought the Lizzie/Gordo kiss should have been a lot more than it was. Come on...it's a big deal! Best friends finally fessing up to liking one another! It should be more than just a kiss. It should be, as my dear Justice would say, "a golden kiss". Therefore, I was disappointed because I spent the whole movie calling Lizzie an idiot (sometimes audibly) and waiting for the kiss, and it wasn't half what I expected. Oh, and don't be mad that I spoiled the ending. You would have figured it out, anyway. Moving on...I'm sitting for them again on the thirteenth of next month and probably in December as well, so that's cool.
I so don't want to go to school on Monday. Blah. I never feel like I have enough time on the weekends. I hope we make the raffle quota and all vote for November 1st off.
