>Back again

>I didn’t really want to do another post today, but sometimes that is necessary, we went to the meeting this morning and then lunch, then Gwen said she was tired and the onion rings were making her sick. So my dad came home, now he is in his computer room, Gwen is sleeping and my mom and I are in the living room. I just finished a delicious mocha she made for me and she is reading the paper while I type this. My dad had mentioned going to Deception Pass but I guess he didn’t want to go that badly. I really don’t care one way or another.

Now I am going to go work on my pictures. I will be back later.

Finished my pictures, I don’t have nearly as many as I thought I did. O well. We also played Rummicub, Gwen and Mom and I, it was fun. I won once and Gwen won once. Well I really have to go now.


I briefly mentioned bruises from the moped on the WW booktalk thread and so now they want an explanation, so I decided to type it here and then just copy and paste.

So a moped has a kickstand, like a motorcycle, you start the moped, then get on, rock forward and the moped comes off the kickstand, then you can ride. However, mopeds don’t have a reverse gear. So I started the moped, got on it, rocked forward so the kickstand was up, then I had to walk it backwards to get out of the parking space I was in. As I was walking backward, I hit my foot against the kickstand! That was bruise number one.

Then right before we turned in the moped and scoot-car, we stopped to put gas in them, they want them returned with a full tank. So we stopped to get gas, had to turn them off for that, then started them again. The moped has a kick-start, after you start it, you turn the little foot part toward the front then push it against the moped so it is out of the way. The gas station is around the corner from the rental place and I forgot to put the kick-start away. I was driving behind my dad and mom in their scoot-car and when we pulled into the rental place, somehow I lost control a little, I might have given it too much gas. I kind of swerved toward the fence and put my feet down cause I thought I was going to fall or hit the fence and banged my leg, yes you guessed it, against the kick-start I had forgotten to put away. Other than that, the only problems I had was the first time I had to start it on my own I couldn’t, my dad had to, I kept forgetting to turn off my turn signal and the crosswind kept trying to blow me off the road. All in all, I had a blast!
