AHH! So, last night was my oh so amazing sweet sixteen party :)
SOO much fun !
MY cousin's ska band played, and they were surprisingly really good. I had no idea, i was just praying for the best
but, everyone loved them.
After failing at singing "I'm yours"
One of the guys in the band was like "heres a song we all know the words to"
and they started playing happy birthday for me
which, a band singing happy birthday to me is like <3333333
and then my friend dan picked me up and i freaked out, cause hes tall as hell
and i'm now like like 10 feet off the ground
Then the band thought it would be fun to play hava nagila
(for you who dont know the name, its that jewish song)
and my friends pushed me into a chair and held me up...
it was fun.. until they realized how hard it is to coordinate putting me back down...
And, of course, we had an intense game of twister
we ended up kicking peoples' limbs out from under them because 4 people refused to fail
we made up the directions SO they would fall and they managed it..
i guess it helps that one is a second degee blackbelt and another is a ballerina
they're really flexible and have all that balance and crap.
I had just gotten back from a sparring tournament, so i had no energy left for coordination
i got third place for my rank by the way,
and i didnt get to finish my matches cause i had to help set up for the party and such
so, who knows, i might have even won
BACK ON TOPIC NOW
my friends are amazing
From one person i got "the complete idiot's guide to playing the guitar"
I swear, it was written for me. XD
i cant wait until I get my guitar now
I'm going to guitar center wednesday to check out my Ibanez in real life <3
hopefully all goes well
(sounds like i'm talking about a puppy...)
but anyway i got that and 2 other how-to-play books
and a set of picks (because we all know I would be the idiot to buy a guitar and not get any picks..)
plus, an unidentified piece of plastic that, after much online investigation, i discovered to be a peg turner.
this is why i have the complete idiots guide to playing guitar
and my step sister got the the CD from warped tour '08
another friend got me a chords pocket guide
which, its a pocket guide if you're wearing trip pants
otherwise, its just a awkwardly long, skinny book
but, as long as it teaches me things :)
what else, what else
zumiez gift card <3
some sick jewelery
a TWLOHA shirt, a twilight shirt
ah. it was an overall good night
and i found the secret to getting people to dance:
turn off the lights and break out the glow sticks.
everyone will get out of their seats.
