    in a few weeks it will be my birthday.

    and her’s.

    hmm… what’ll i do?

  2. a bit of my day

    February 25, 2006 by louissa

    on days like this, with the weather being what it is, i’m perfectly content to stay home (okay, when am i not content to do that?) and spend the afternoon in the kitchen cooking and baking all sorts of yummy things. fortunately for me, this is what i’m in the middle of doing with my dearest little brother. he’s invited a family over for dinner tomorrow and has to help make the meal in order to earn a badge. it’s been rather fun watching him clean the potatoes and make comments about onions and whatnot. i really do believe he must be one of the smartest boys.

    i finally told him to take bo bice out of the cd player. i know, i’m bo’s biggest fan, but even i get tired of listening to the same two songs over and over. i told my sister to put nickel creek in, merrick flipped out (“not nickel creek again!“), and i told him he could listen to jack johnson if he wanted.

    There’s no combination of words
    I could put on the back of a postcard
    No song I could sing…

    as the first track started merrick suddenly said, “i love this music. it makes me think of being in a car.”

    MMM its always better when we’re together
    Yeah, look at the stars when we’re together
    Well, it’s always better when we’re together
    Yeah, it’s always better when we’re together…

    he continued dancing around with his microphone, talking about how he had immediately recognized that the first song in “Curious George” was a jack johnson song. he just “loved it.”

    but i don’t think he’s super smart just because he knows good music when he hears it — i bet he could school you in constellations and greek mythology.

    anyways. my bedroom has been turned into a recording studio again. i just don’t think i should think it normal to walk into my bedroom and see my sister in pajama’s, bass in hand, recording.

    and yet i do.

  3. much thanks

    February 23, 2006 by louissa

    thanks for all participating in this. it’s rather funny because i originally had to pick “five words that i thought fit me best” and apparently i don’t know myself very well. ’twas lots of fun, although i do wish that “meandyou” had left me an actual name… i hate anything anonymous. won’t you please let me in on who you are?

    but anyways. like i promised, i love you all so much more now!

  4. my voice

    February 20, 2006 by louissa

    i am quick to acknowledge the fact that i’m a bit of a follower. this hasn’t always been a good thing in the past, but i figure as long as i’m following with this then there’s no harm done. go ahead — do it for me. i’ll love you even more for it.

    since most of cfc comes here every now and then, i’ll let you know that i do realize that my voice broke approximately 5 times yesterday during worship. and i do realize that because of all that “breaking” i sang some wrong notes.

    but i did not suddenly lose my ability to hear when i’m on pitch or not. and i am not going to get singing lessons all because of one bad sunday.

    sorry for the painful singing you had to deal with yesterday. i’ll try to do better next time.

  5. update

    February 16, 2006 by louissa

    out of surgery, in recovery, and found out that she did tear her achilles again.

    back at square one… if not a bit worse. this tear was more messy than the last.

    there we go!

  6. mumsie

    February 16, 2006 by louissa

    you can all pray for my mom. her leg has been healing up very well and she has started hobbling around on her own, but this morning she tripped and fell full weight on her bad foot and split the skin in the back of her ankle/leg open. we don’t know if she damaged her achilles tendon again but we’ll find out at 1:30 this afternoon when she goes in to see her doctor for surgery.

    my poor dear mumsie.

    5:20 pm

    she’s just going into surgery, due to a backed up hospital. the doctor will be able to see if her tendon was hurt at all during the operation.

  7. the angel side of me

    February 15, 2006 by louissa

    if i was the perfectly horrible person i wish i was, i wouldn’t have logged out when i sat down at the desktop moments ago, only to realize that my friend hadn’t logged out of his e-mail account before he left my house. i would have loved being perfectly devilish while reading e-mail after e-mail… not that i think i would have found anything interesting, but it would have been rather fun to feel like i had a secret “in” on someone and they wouldn’t have a clue.

    but i was a good girl. i logged out, logged in under my name, only to have this incredible thought pop into my head after there was no way back in!

    ah! if only i was bad. but on to more exciting things.

    figured i’d give a warning before any other heart attack’s ensue. are you ready?

    i colored my hair darker.

    now you can go keel (is that how you spell it?) over and die.

  8. nothin’ here

    February 14, 2006 by louissa

    so i’ve been bad at this whole “writing” deal.

    i’m worn out. ever feel rather empty and like there’s nothing inside of you?

    yeah, that’s me.

    nothing in me = nothing to write about.

    so you’re going to have to deal for a few more days until i come up with some outrageous story to share or want to reveal some more random tid-bits about myself.


  9. happy valentine’s day.

    February 14, 2006 by louissa


    yes, i put this up a year ago. but don’t they look yummy?

    so many people hate valentine’s day. i don’t think there is anything to hate about it, unless you only view it as a time to tell your significant other how much you adore them, and you happen to be quite single and very bitter about that fact– so of course you hate february 14th since you feel that it’s personally trying to make fun of you because of how single you are. but for me, it’s more of a family holiday. my mumsie has always given us candy in pink, sprinkled confetti on the table, and my parents have always given us mushy cards to tell us how much they love us.

    today we’ll be decorating the cookies she made yesterday with pink frosting and later someone will make pudding and layer it with raspberries to get the real “festive” feel. a few of us will actually make cards for family members (still don’t know if i’ll be one of the ones this year) and we’ll all eat a dinner together.

    flowers are nice and i’m sure a box of chocolates from that certain someone you love so much would be just dandy, but i’ll take this day how it is — a time for me to tell my family how much i love and appreciate them.

  10. heart day

    February 11, 2006 by louissa

    i feel the need to post something, but don’t have the time to actually write. this is the perfect time to re-post an old entry.

    Saturday, February 12, 2005

    if i was a perfectly lovely person, i would send each of you something on valentines day. perhaps i would make heart shaped sugar cookies, decorate them with red, pink, and white frosting and send them to all of my faithful readers who i love and hate so very much. but i’m sure you wouldn’t recieve them in a whole heart shape, so i’m not doing that. home-made cards… nope. not doing that either. i’m terrible at making them and i definately don’t have the patience to make enough for all of you.

    i’m afraid you’re going to have to get over the fact that you’re not getting anything from your favorite person this year.
