This is our blog, I and I. We, Isobel and Iris or (I and I) met in kindergarten and, though Isobel moved across the country, we remained best friends and created this blog. We try to post daily and keep you updated on EVERYTHING that (we think) matters. Enjoy!
I hope everyone had a splendid Thanksgiving! ANd if it was not lovely and delightful, then maybe these ideas to have fun will help you next time.
Games to Play:
1. Say you have to go to the bathroom, take some food with you secretly and hide it somewhere, repeat until the food on the table is mostly gone. People will wonder where the food went and what that bad smell is!
2. Stare people down at the table. When they ask someone what you're doing, look away. It may sound immature, but it is so fun!!!
3. Take the pie and throw it in someone's face/ start a food fight!!
4. Take hold of the turkey, put it on your hand and pretend it is real. "Well hello Mr. Turkey" "Greeting Ms. Isobel, how are you?" "Quite fine, you?" "Well besides the part that I am slowly being demolished , I'm wonderful!"
5. Imagine everyone at your table having the heads of the food your eating. It is great fun!
Tips for Decorations:
1. Put pumpkins... EVERYWHERE!
2. Create a cute diorama of the first Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving today. If you don't have that much time, stick some lego people in a sloppy forest and house drawing. Or not.
3. Put orange candles everywhere
4. Put pretend turkeys on window ledges. Or buy a couple live ones as pets.
5. Have really cool plates and festive tableware.
Getting into the Spirit Tips:
1. Scream on the streets "Hail The Turkey!!!"
2. Hide in a box with a turkey.
3. Stuff your face with food.
4. Throw stuffing out of the window yelling "Happy Thanksgiving, Mwah HA HA!"
5. Think about what your thankful for.
Thanksgiving Lame but Fun Party Tips:
1. Put on a Thanksgiving play!
2. Write letters to and from items on the table (ex. Saucer to Sweet Potatoes)
3. Dress up as characters from Thanksgiving
4. Invite the whole family to come!
5. Write Happy Thanksgiving over and over on a sheet of paper in different fonts with friends.
This is a really nice poem by Pablo Neruda called "If You Forget Me"
I want you to know one thing.
You know how this is: if I look at the crystal moon, at the red branch of the slow autumn at my window, if I touch near the fire the impalpable ash or the wrinkled body of the log, everything carries me to you, as if everything that exists, aromas, light, metals, were little boats that sail toward those isles of yours that wait for me.
Well, now, if little by little you stop loving me I shall stop loving you little by little.
If suddenly you forget me do not look for me, for I shall already have forgotten you.
If you think it long and mad, the wind of banners that passes through my life, and you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart where I have roots, remember that on that day, at that hour, I shall lift my arms and my roots will set off to seek another land.
But if each day, each hour, you feel that you are destined for me with implacable sweetness, if each day a flower climbs up to your lips to seek me, ah my love, ah my own, in me all that fire is repeated, in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten, my love feeds on your love, beloved, and as long as you live it will be in your arms without leaving mine.
This is my pop culture post! I will right them every now and then, just to see how the world changes. Today I am doing talk shows. In the future I plan to do Sitcoms, Music, Movies, and Books, among other things.
Good: The Oprah Show. It may sound like a ball of cheese, but everyone interviewed is very interesting and I never turn off the TV without having learned something. Plus, I find Oprah's story inspirational and amazing. This is the show to watch if you want to actually pay attention!
O.K: Ellen. She's very funny and entertaining, but only for a little while. The people she interviews are mostly great, but not as good as on Oprah. If you're trying to listen to something while on the computer or whatever, this is probably a good choice.
Bad:That show on ABC Family called like "Family, Work, Religion." I find it kind of stereotypical, to be honest. I've only seen it a couple times, but every time I found it not very interesting. I overall wouldn't recommend it.
Today is the end of Hannah Montana. She will reveal her secret to the world, give up Hannah Montana and go into college. WOW! I don't exactly like Hannah Montana, but it was such I cultural milestone for kids. I had this obsession with her when I was little, so I am dedicated today, Sunday, Nov. 7 to Hannah Montana. I am singing her music (which is funny because I know every lyric) and I am definitely going to watch the finale. I think I'm gonna cry!
I wonder what she will do after Hannah Montana, it may take a will for her to break out of her childish reputation, but I don't know if she has a good enough voice to be a star or if she will just fade away into nothing...
I hope you all will watch the episode because after all these years I think she deserves it!
Ahh, the Halloween memories. Of waking people up in the middle of the night for candy. Of being deadly tired the next day. Of staying up all night and then falling asleep in your candy. Of shoving food down your throat at 2 bars a second. Boy, do I love Halloween!
