  1. I also got another Email and its aweosme so to do it you have to use a claculator. follow what i tell you to do:

    1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to

    go out to eat.

    (more than once but less than 10)

    2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)

    3. Add 5

    4. Multiply it by 50

    5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1758…

    If you haven’t, add 1757.

    6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

    You should have a three digit number

    The first digit of this was your original number. (I.e., How many times
    you want to go out to restaurants in a week.)

    The next two numbers are

    YOUR AGE ! —— (Oh YES, it is!)

    i copied it from the email so the person who wrote it went crazy with all the punctuation.

  2. oh dear!! i had the name flowerchild thingey!!!!!!!!! darn well it was me…..heehee ๐Ÿ˜ณ

  3. haha i plan on scarying my friend at the graveyard thats by our houses

  4. oh wow. the private books are so very good. i’m addicted to them. i just read the truth about who murdered this one guy and ughhhhh……. i’m still dying for more. …but i decided i should go to bed since it’s 11 and this is the earliest i’ve gotten to bed since i can’t remember when. ugh. wow. still so shocked.


  5. ooohh pixi stixz mmm

  7. today was hilarious! in spanish this one kid put a farting machine under my teachers desk and then pressed the button and scared the crap out of her. and she said “what the hell was that?” (don’t you love it when teachers cuss. i do. makes them more relatible i guess. plus it’s funny.) and she seriously didn’t even know what it was. and then she couldn’t figure out where it was coming from. and the whole time everyone was laughing so hard they cried. it was great. maybe immature but still great! even my teacher was crying. lol. and a student from one of her other classes came in and the machine went off and my teacher acted like she was the one who let it rip and the student looked shocked. lol. it was so funny. and she didn’t get mad at all. she even asked if she could borrow it to scare her next class. lol. my spanish teacher rocks.

We have the physical education test so we have to run a mile (its horrible) and so he told us it was today and everyone freaked out cause no one can stand running continuesly around the freakin track so then he said “April Fools” ha, wow it wasnt funny but i was able to swallow my stomach, you get it! it was a metephor. I am soooo funny. well, when your actually talking to me i am and when i dont make those random stupid jokes but on the computer im proubaly really boring. That reminds me off this time that i kickd this ball at my friend and i hit her in the stomach! it was sooo funny or the time she spit chicken in my face, i still laugh about that. Or when her sister left her a massage that was 5 min long. “Mom called, and when you get home……she wants us to pray….” and blah blah blah but it was soooo funny! Hahaha i am hyper and i just blabbed a bunch of nonsince. and if you think im hyper by keep sayiong “hahah” that only means im having a momentary laugh, im not bouncing off the walls i just feel like i havent taking in…….1 hour! whoa! thats a record. ok im gonna go now…..

    P.S im sooo glad im not having broccli for breakfest….wait! what?!?!? did i just say for breakfest, wow that was stupid, i mean dinner. Ha!

  19. ha i just scared the crap out of my mom! ๐Ÿ˜€ see my cousins tried to prank me at easter by putting this little fake mouse cat toy in one of my easter eggs and so i decided to use the fake mouse and i snuck it in to my moms bed right under the covers (and she is like a rodent freak. absolutly HATES them.) so she freaked out. it was great. and now she’s called a full out april fools (extended) war. lol. this is gonna be great. got any good pranks??

  20. Courtney, we had a bomb threat last week

    and a huge lockdown and drug bust.
    Turns out there was a huge stash of pot in our school basement.
    Yup, we have a school basement.


    Aw and thanks guys ๐Ÿ˜€

  21. That sounds kind of creepy!!!! My school is really small so we hardly ever even have a practice lock-down. I loke having those though. Because they’re fun for some odd reason!!!

    I love Sueprman/Tom Welling!!!!

  22. my school didnt die on april 4th!!

    however.. since they still dont know who did it. we are going
    to be on “high security” until they find out who DID do it.!!

    so basically we cant leave the class except during passing periods [yes, even to go to the bathroom]. we have cops stationed EVERYWHERE in and out of the building. and we
    have to sit w/our classes at lunch.. ughh. soo boring.

    courtney-laa, sounds scarry! our school doesnt have
    a basement.. let alone pot in it.

  23. I htink that most of time we have at least 2 cops at the school at all school hours. We are a pretty small schooll so we don’t need all that niffty stuff.

    I love Serupman/Tom Welling!!!!

  24. Hi, sorry for asking this question here, but I am not ableto find a contact form or something so I thought I leave my inquiry here. I run a blogengine blog but I am getting bigger amounts of spam. I see u use wordpress, is it trouble-free to control spam with wordpress or doesn’t it make any difference? I hope you will respond to my comment or maybe send me an email with your answer if you don’t want to approve the comment. Best regards, Annie

  25. Some people cause, at times drastic, changes to their appearance to conform to what they consider to be the ideal beauty in their own culture or society. Breast enlargement, collagen treatments, nose jobs, eye lifts, and facelifts, are many of the most popular choices, and are usually performed as purely cosmetic procedures.
