Pottery, People and Paranoia

Yesterday I went with Moxie to a pottery place in Hut-Hut Town. The directions were a little sketchy because Moxie looked them up on her iPod and we weren't expecting traffic circles instead of traffic lights. But anyway, we went to McDonalds first and I saw some interesting old men fights out the window as I drank coffee creamer waiting for my chicken fries to be cooked. After we ate, we had a nice little rap going in the truck involving some drink straw noises, haha. The pottery place was nice but it didn't have much to choose from. Moxie and I are both very indecisive so it took us forever to decide what to paint. I ended up painting a gorilla and moxie painted a skull. You can view those on her blog because she had the camera. It will be several weeks before I get it back, right now its in a kiln. Afterwards, we went back to her house and I played with beads and designed some ideas for rings. Moxie told me that cutting the stem part off of a ring pop was almost impossible. I disagreed and she sent me home with a ring pop to test out my skills. I used a long jagged knife and cut the stem right off! I'm so proud.
The paranoia comes in when my mom was taking me home from Moxie's house. When I reached my driveway, I noticed Raela's car sitting there by the road. I was like "Holy crap! Her mom's here to kill me!" I thought she had found out about the other day. However, when I went inside her mom wasn't there. Her dad was there discussing politics with my dad and Raela was sitting there playing with my nephew and Kane. I was so shocked. I asked her why she came and she said she had been practicing driving and drove to my house. I took her to my room, my nephew came to, and I showed her my home videos from when I was little. I was so adorable. =D
Later that night, after she left, Kane(my kitty) was up to his tricks again. He climbed up my dad's ladder and jumped onto the ceiling boards. Afterwards, he jumped all the way into the attic. He ended up getting himself stuck on a far off board so I had to go rescue him. My brother sat by the computer the whole time, watching but not helping. I used a long board from a shelf that my mom never helped me put together and made a bridge for Kane to walk across. After rescuing the poor kitty, he started climbing right back up again. However, this time he didn't get trapped. He seriously worries me sometimes...


  1. Funny stuff Kae. Those were some good times. Cats are crazy sometimes. Mine were always wrestling or climbing on the tops of doors.

    But now they just act fat and lazy, even though they aren't.

    By the way, how many more ring pops can you cut? :)

  2. Very interesting post. :) Loved it.
