I win the money!

Hey hey! I won the "First Day of Snow in Ashburn, Virginia" Contest! I guessed the 13th and it snowed today, the 10th. It only snowed for 30 minutes around 10:00 AM, but it was enough to be official! Here are everyone else's guesses:

4 Mom
5 Bryan
6 Dad
13 David
16 Nathan
18 Alison
20 Lisa
22 Mark
28 Katie and Anna

I asked dad for a king-size 100 Grand. Oh man, those are my favorite of all time.

Also, for anyone interested, tomorrow I get my driver's license! That is, if I pass my driving test. I hope I won't crash and/or die.

Doubley also, for anyone interested, Stone Bridge High School is playing tomorrow at UVA for the state title! It's a pretty big deal. We're playing against Phoebus, who hasn't lost a game since 2007 (they lost to us). But we've won every single game this season, too. And we've beaten the other teams by a lot. So, it'll be a good game. I have feeling we're going to win this one. I don't think I can go, but it should be on TV.

Tripley also, I'm super duper excited for Christmas! It will super duper fun! And we'll all have a super duper time!

The Moon

Here's a really cool animation of the cycle of the moon. It's really fascinating to stare at.

Did you know that on Google Earth you can change it to Sky, Moon, or Mars mode? It's really cool. You should do it. Also, if you go to "tools," you go into flight simulator mode! I personally enjoy flying in the Grand Canyon or in the Himalayas. Or into my school...

More findings

I honestly have no idea where this came from or how it came to be.
I can only assume that I thought writing children's books would be easy and I made an attempt at it.
Here's mine:

Pretty cool, eh? I would totally buy it if it was a book.

I'm super excited for Thanksgiving. And for Christmas. And for New Year's.

A Blast From the Past

Well, I don't think I'm going to do NaBloPoMo (we'll see...), but Bryan's latest posts have inspired me to share some of my personal paint drawings.

I did these a while ago (when Bryan was on his mission). He told me what to draw and I would send them back in an e-mail.

I like these the best.
Here is "evil lamp jumping over trains to eat dwarfs"

Here's "mouse on whipped cream eating toenail"
And my personal favorite, "monkeys on train with mac and cheese"

Oh man. I remember making these on Sundays and spending a really long time on them. I wish I could find the e-mails, but I think they were on the old account. Whatever. Enjoy.

my new ride

Well, last week I found a really good deal on Craigslist for a Go-Ped Sport. It's pretty awesome. I bought a new air filter (the red UFO thing) and a new spindle (it's inside the engine). So far it works great! I'm pretty sure the neighbors hate me because it's not very quiet, but they can deal with it. It runs on gas and goes about 20 mph. I'm looking forward to many new adventures around Ashburn! I would probably ride it to school, but it takes approx. 2 to 30 pulls before it runs smoothly. So... probably not.
