A quick update on yesterday's post. I found my iPod. It was in my coat pocket. The very same coat pocket I checked numerous times. Always empty your pockets folks. Don't just check them. I wonder how many people are going to stop reading here and simply comment to congratulate me on finding my iPod. Probably a lot more than would have before now I've given them the idea.
Due to a scheduling error both C+D were posted on the same day. Seeing as D (Dancing) had received comments and this hadn't, I decided that this would be the one to be pulled down and reposted. I do know my alphabet, I just lost the ability to schedule posts properly.
As I mentioned a bit ago it was my sister's surprise birthday party recently. She turned 16 and had a small tea party on the day. She had no idea at all that she had another party coming on the Saturday after. That's right folks, people really DO throw surprise parties, and sometimes they can even work and be a surprise.
However I was very out of place there. I didn't really know anyone. It was the first time I had seen my stepsister and her 9 kids in a few years. One of them also has seriously stunted growth and is 18 but about the same size as my second eldest niece, who is 11.
I did have Jessie with me though. So if anything she was more out of place than me. The only people she really knew there was me and my sister, who she goes to college with. Having eachother meant that while we were bored for most of it, we still had something to do. I'm not complaining, it's just that I didn't really know anyone, and I didn't really like the music. I talked to the DJ and he agreed that the music was bad, but he was called on short notice and so couldn't get anything good. Shame.
The person I felt the most sorry for though was my dad. At times like this, I spend time with him. However because I had Jessie this time, he got left on his own quite a lot. He survived, somehow, but I don't know. It would have been nice if he at least had someone to talk to. He's fine with his own company though.
My sister didn't seem to be really enjoying herself either for most of it. I should probably have talked to her. The party wasn't that bad, but it was geared towards people who weren't my age, and I barely knew anyone. Plus I never really was the partying type. I can't remember the last time I had anything close to a birthday party.
