Just hanging here. Bored. Saturdays are a bit of a drag for me. There's not a lot to do, and I forgot my homework at school (like I'd do it anyway, it's in gym class *rolls eyes* honestly, homework in gym?) so yeah.

Inora says hi. He's calm today, actually. Which is good for me, because I'm not really up to alot today.

Okay, so I have to weed the garden, right? So I do, becoming Conqueror of the Weeds along the way, and then my mother says "Okay, can you weed this for 5 dollars?" And points to this patch of weeds up to 4 feet tall and a desk-area wide. So then I become Uber Conqueror of the 4-foot Tall Weeds! My shoes were dirt encased, my socks dirt-colored, and my toes got a cute dirt tan.

Great...

OH! Not to long ago, I figured out how to put out a candle flame with your fingers. WARNING: only do so if you've had experience with playing with flames

1.) Lick fingers (not entirely gross like it sounds)
2.) Pinch flame QUICKLY near the wick, DO NOT keep hands directly above the flame for ANY amount of time over 2 seconds. It burns pretty quickly. Not fun
3.) Laugh maniacally at success or failure

It sounds easy, but the second step is actually pretty hard. Getting around the flame (especially with today's candles that have stupid glass containers) is tough, leaving you to attack from above. Also, if you don't lick your fingers enough, you can get burned.

Hmmm....what else?

Huh, I don't really know.

Kay, byes.

We have very few candles in this house. Matches, sure, but my mom doesn't like flames where they can fall over and catch on to something else. Like the walls.

Feh. What's the point in having any candles then? My parents aren't too keen on lighting random fires either, but once a week they'll light one. :D
