So, school started up again. I don't know, I'm not as gung-ho about it as I used to be. Which is... kind of sad, actually. But one part that is definitely good is that I get to see JT without either bluffing or planning an elaborate "group date." It's kind of funny, my dad wasn't like this when I dated Towerz, mainly because he didn't know. (My mom kind of knew; she basically said "don't tell your dad" and then ignored it.) So I can't tell him that, because I'd only get in more trouble, but it's pretty stupid that he's placing all these restrictions on my time with JT precisely because he actually knows him and I'm not hiding it. Or, maybe he wasn't as clueless before as I thought, and that's why he's being so strict. Who knows; I'm certainly not going to bring it up. If this is my first relationship as far as he knows, maybe he'll relax once he gets used to the idea of me dating.

So, four long days of school left - who wants to celebrate surviving the first week back on Friday? Let me know!

Merry Christmas! [Dec. 27th, 2004|09:07 pm]

[music |God Bless Ye Merry Gentlemen]

Well, Merry Christmas everyone! Yeah, that's two days late... I wasn't exactly allowed to use the computer, since I was *grounded* on *Christmas*! Can you believe it? So much to fill everyone in on. So, JT's invitation to help decorate the tree was, in fact, rescinded (it means "taken back," JT :) ). BUT, I prevailed upon my Dad to be reasonable, and as an "early Christmas present" he did allow me to invite JT over in the afternoon on Christmas eve for cookies and hot chocolate. He was watching us like a hawk, though, and kept glaring whenever JT got within a foot of me... it was pretty awkward, and eventually JT left so we could get ready for the Christmas Eve service. I didn't even get a goodbye kiss :(. The service was ok... I'm not exactly religious, but it's traditional, and the music is very pretty.

Then Christmas morning I got up before everyone except Danny... while he was busy with his stocking, I decided to sneak over to JT's to wish him Merry Christmas. I thought I left in time to get back before my Dad realized I was gone... but I was wrong, and he demanded to know where I'd been the second I got back. Then he accused me of "degrading myself to satisfy a teenage boy's lust" (where do parents get these things?) and grounded me for a few days while Danny laughed. I was still mad at him when we opened presents, but at least I got some good books (including the first 3 Lemony Snicket books), a Scanner, and Paintshop for my computer. I can make some cool new graphics for the Grapevine! BUT, of course, I wasn't allowed to use the computer as part of my grounding.

So I basically read in my room (2 Lemony Snicket books down - they're pretty good, and it will be interesting to see how the movie adaptation is) until this afternoon, when my dad came in to "talk"... basically telling me how teenage boys can't be trusted and he doesn't want his little girl (there's the problem right there) to grow up too soon. I reminded him that this is JT we're talking about, he's known him forever, and finally he said we can hang out here IF he's present (like we're going to subject ourselves to that) and go out in groups only (though only a couple times a week, since I'm "too young to be too serious.") Argh, but better than nothing. So, who wants to go out in a "group" soon?

Whew, marathon entry. Well, that's it for now, kiddos... now that I've got the computer back, time to play with my new toys!

Whew, I know I haven't posted in a long time. Teachers give sooo much work before break. But we're finally done with school... for a little while. I'm looking forward to Christmas, although a little less than I was a couple days ago... my Dad had told me invite J.T. for tree-trimming on Thursday (he said if I'm "going to be spending so much time with some boy" he should at least get to know him), but since he caught us making out in the hot tub, I think the invitation is rescinded. So, I can spend time with boys, but heaven forbid I ever kiss one? You'd think I was in grade 7, not 10.

Well, off to watch "A Christmas Story" with Danny (it's a yearly tradition... don't laugh). Maybe I'll try to reason with my father tomorrow.

What do you do when your dreams have come true? [Dec. 6th, 2004|04:21 pm]
[mood |relaxedrelaxed]

So, a pretty eventful weekend. Friday night I had to babysit Danny. He's only a year younger (two grades, since I skipped), but my father says I'm more mature, so he will leave the two of us home, but not just Danny. He's right (since Danny is the most immature child ever and I am, of course, preternatually mature), but still, being responsible sucks sometimes. So I had to stay home.

Saturday made up for it, though - I went with to see JT, Ashley, and everyone's band play and then JT and I went to the party. The band was fantastic - of course, JT is a great dummer - and the party was drama-free (I haven't been to any other grade 11 parties, but I hear that drama-free is unusual). Emma dropped JT and me off on way home - I'm glad someone I know finally has a car, and Toby and JT will be next! (I, unfortunately, will be last. Way last.)

Speaking of JT, I'm afraid I was a teeny bit defensive toward the new girl when she said he was cute. It's just that I've crushed on him for so long, and now that he likes me, I'm worried it's just for lack of a better option. Hopefully my fears are unfounded; I just hope it isn't too good to be true. Well, off to do a little homework before dinner.

Au Revoir,
