OMG! Friends is OVER! I can't get over it. It's like the end of an era! It's just so sad. This journal entry is dedicated to Friends because it is the bestest show ever and it can live forver in reruns and all the dvds. *tear*

This week was pretty good. We had UIL on Wednesday (yay for field trip days!) and got sweepstakes (straight ones for all you non-band people). We played really well on stage. Sightreading was another story. We did good until the end, I guess. Oh well. Apparently we played the sightreading piece the best they'd heard so far. After UIL, all the PALs people went to Dr.Phun (phd in phun haha). It was interesting. At least we didn't have to go to 5th and 6th periods though. On Friday, we started learning Festive Overture because we might play it at the end of the year concert. I'm really happy because the clarinets have a good part for once and I finally get a solo longer than 2 measures. You don't know how exciting that is for me lol. Hopefully we'll be able to learn it in time. After school, we went to Pine Forest and sampled the food for band banquet. Now that was really fun. It was sooooooo good! It's like 10 times better than the food at the Shereton. After that, Madison, Ashley, and I went to Denny's then over to Madison's and watched Win a Date with Tad Hamilton. I slept through most of it, but it's still a good movie lol. On Saturday, Madison and I went to go see 13 going on 30. It was so cute! I loved it. After that we went to Paul's Pizza (always yummy) then to the Kinsmen Brass Concert, since Ross and Chris bugged us all week to come hear them. j/k They sounded good,. Later we went and wrapped Mark's car in ceran wrap and wrote I love The OC and One Tree Hill all over his car. That was fun. Especially since he caught us. Then we just watched tv and played on the computer at Mark's. I have to do a lot of hw today because I didn't do any this week. At least this week'll be easy with TAKS and the band trip this weekend. So we only have to go Monday for the whole day. That's cool. Well I better start studying for government since we have a quiz on Tuesday and I have no idea what it's over.

So it hasn't been the greatest week. Actually it's been just dandy, but ok. I do this Houston Chronicle win points thing and I put ALL my points (it was like over 600,000) into a Tivo. I know I had the majority of the bids, but I still lost. *tear* Then, last night on American Idol, Jon Peter Lewis got voted off!!!!! That's such poo. John Stevens should have been voted off and everyone knows it. GRR! Jon Peter Lewis was soooo cute! He was a break in the monotany of boring people. Now I'm going for La Toya. I have to start voting because I don't want her to get kicked off like JPL. Anyways, our color guard went to nationals on Wednesday and got 3rd in prelims! They get to perform at finals today. I'm so proud of them! Tomorrow's my AFA audition, which I'm not exactly looking forward too. Hopefully the all-state thing will help. Well, I really hope I just have a good audition lol. If you can't tell, I'm a little scatter-brained at the moment. My daddy came home from Memphis last night kinda late so my mom and I stayed up late talking to him. We didn't do anything in computer science today! For real this time, not just Kirstin and I choosing not to do anything. lol. Rhiannon's looking at the Donkey Kong website. That was the best game ever on Super Nintendo. I remember playing that for hours. I beat the first one but I don't think I ever beat the second. Wait, maybe I did. haha. I miss the old Nintendo games. Like on the really old Nintendo, that duck hunt game rocked! It was so much fun. The bell's about to ring so I better go!

So my weekend was lots of fun. All I did was basically catch up on all the errands I needed to run. Friday, I had to get my dress altered for the 2nd time to fix some things. Then Madison, Hailey, Ashley, and I saw The Prince and Me. That's my new favorite movie! It's sooooo cute!!!! If you haven't seen it yet, you should definitely go. That night, my parents, Madison, and I went to the Rockets game. My parents had bought the tickets from the band auction last weekend. It was an awesome game. The Rockets were behind the whole first half but finally came ahead at the end to win their spot in the playoffs. Yay! We saw Mr.Young at the game and he waved at us. His face was all painted and stuff and that was funny. I think playing drums at the Rockets games is best job he could have. Anyways, Saturday, Madison and I ran errands from 12-5pm. We went up and down hwy 6/1960, but we got a lot of stuff. I got all the decorations for band banquet (for the centerpieces at least) and they're going to be so cute! I'm really excited about band banquet! Then Saturday night I went and saw The Prince and Me again because my parents wanted me to go with them. It was still good the second time. Sunday was pretty blah. I got Cheaper by the Dozen, the 7th season of Friends, the Yellowcard CD, and lots of candy for Easter. I finished my senior wills for band banquet, after working on them for like 4 hours. I cried after just about every one I wrote (which is really weird because if you know me at all, I don't cry like ever), but at least they're finished. Monday, I got to sleep in for the first time all weekend. After I woke up and got ready, I went to get my prom dress altered for the 3rd time. I got new shoes that are much more comfortable on Saturday, so I had to get it altered again. My AFA audtion's on Saturday so I practiced for about an hour. I guess I should practice a lot this week for the audition, but I probably won't. I should be finishing up my government notes right now, but oh well. I needed a break lol. At least Madison and I split them up so we only had to read 20 pages each instead of all 40. Well, I better finish taking notes!

Tonight we had Pre-UIL and did AWESOME! I was so happy. I think we've been working hard for the past couple of weeks and we really needed a good performance to show our hard work actually went somewhere lol. But it was cool because according to some directors from other schools, we're gonna be the new "buzz" around the district. *I was eavesdropping before we left for sightreading* Anyways, it's pretty cool that we did this good at Pre-UIL. We went to Chili's afterwards and that was fun too. On the way home, Madison and I were talking about going to college and senior wills and junk. I got really sad. It just kinda hit me that we're graduating and most of the people that we're pretty good friends with we're never going to see again. Maybe every once in a while but it'll never be the same after high school. I mean, I really wanna get out of high school and everything, but I don't know what I'm going to do next year without some of my really good friends. The hardest thing for me right now is that there's so much drama and junk that it's ruining the last few weeks I'm going to spend with my best friends. Well I think I'm gonna cry if I talk any more about that and that'll make my eyes all poofy in the morning since I'm about to go to sleep.

So this weekend was pretty eventful. Thursday night, Hailey, Kirstin, and I bought Trevor for the Senior Men Auction so we dressed up him like a pretty, pretty princess on Friday. Friday night, we had the band auction. It was pretty fun. We did the band council auction and made a lot of money, which I thought was pretty cool. A lot of people came up to me and said what a good idea that was so that made me happy. I'm so glad band council's good this year. Most of us work together really well and it's great. Mark, Jeff, and Ross (plus my dad who put in a little money) bought me at the auction. I'm not exactly looking forward to dressing up like a monk but that's ok. On Friday night though, this casting lady from the upcoming movie Friday Night Lights or something like that came to get some extras for the band. It's a movie based on a football team and they needed people to be in the band. Ron Howard's directing and Billy-Bob Thorton and Tim McGraw and a bunch of cool people are in it. Not that we got to see any of them on Saturday. So on Saturday, I woke up at 4:50am to meet up at the school at 5:45am to drive to the Astrodome and be there by 6:45. The breakfast they gave us was um..not so yummy and same for the lunch. The first part of the day was cool b/c we got to do all the band stuff and the extra work wasn't so boring at the beginning. All we did for like 8 hours was sit, fidget, clap, stand up and cheer, boo, and fidget while standing up. We just moved around the stadium and switched shirts b/c we had to represent the audience for both football teams. About an hour or 2 after lunch we decided to leave. Hopefully we'll still get money. After that, Jeff, Mark, Madison and I ate at Del Pueblo then hung out at Madison's. We watch Freaky Friday despite the fact that Chris thought it wouldn't be funny, but we proved him wrong lol. Then I came home and went to sleep. 4:50 is very early on a Saturday morning. Well I have to go do government homework which is always a bunch of fun...not.

Once again, we're not doing anything in comp sci. Kirstin and I can't figure out the last 3 codes on the Houston Chronicle Points thingy. *tear* Thanks to Hailey, we're both addicted now lol. It's a lot of fun though. Go to houstonchronicle.readandwin.com and register and put Blueberry504 or Kirstiny04 as the person that referred you. Anyways, we have this government test today and I'm scared. I don't feel like she prepared us at all. Oh well. I'll just fail anyways. Tonight's a new American Idol! I'm so excited!!! I can't wait to watch Jon Peter Lewis. He's my favorite but I think I've said that in about five of my journal entries. I haven't updated in a few days so I'll talk about the rest of my weekend. On Saturday we had the Raffle Blitz and Hailey, Laura, Lindsey, and I sold at Car Wash, Etc. We did pretty well. Selling stuff is the absolute worst part of band but it's over now!!! After that, we did floor crew at the color guard competition. The guard got 2nd which is good but I'm mad that Cy-Falls beat them because their show is a lot easier than Cy-Fair's. On Sunday, I finished my band scholarship application and mailed it. After church on Sunday night, my mom and I went out to eat with some people from church. We went to Jason's Deli. That place is really gross and it gives me a tummy ache. My mom doesn't like it either. I guess that's about all that happened this weekend. Sorry, my life isn't that exciting. I'm gonna go finish getting my points for today for the houston chronicle.

Meredith :)

COME TO THE CY-FAIR BAND AUCTION AT CY-FAIR COLLEGE FRIDAY NIGHT! BRING MONEY SO YOU CAN BUY A MEMBER OF BAND COUNCIL FOR A DAY!!!

Today was sooooo much fun. For once, we had a productive band council meeting. yay! After the meeting we went to go check out the limo and make the down payment. The limo was AMAZING! It's really not that expensive compared to all the other SUV limos and it's so awesome. It's a brand new 2004 Excursion stretch limo. It has 4 plasma flat screen tvs with a dvd player, a nice bar thingy, and all that other stuff. It's sooo cool! We looked at the Hummer limo they had and it was even more amazing. It has all these lights and stuff in it with satellite tv and everything. But it's more expensive so we stuck with the Excursion. After that we were just driving around (Jeff, Hailey, and me) looking at pretty houses and we saw a Rice Epicurean Market. It's like this upscale grocery store that has See's Candy. So we stopped to get some candy which just made my day. After that we went down to River Oaks and ate at this restaurant Jeff really likes called Ramano's Pizza or something. It was yummy and cheap which is great. Then we went to the Galleria for a little while. We took a picture with the Easter bunny and that was hilarious. After that we just went home. On the way home, Hailey was staring at this girl at the car next to us on 290 and the girl started to freak out. Hailey kept staring at her and we followed her off the exit at 1960 just to freak her out a little bit more. She pulled into a gas station because she was so scared so we just drove through the gas station real quick. The look on her face was priceless. She looked like she had just seen a ghost or something. We drove through to McDonald's to go back to Cy-Fair (because Hailey and I left our cars there) and the same girl was pulling out of the Cheveron station and saw us pulling out of McDonald's. She made this quick u-turn to go the opposite way. It was sooooo funny! Too bad we probably scared her half to death. That's about all the excitement for today. We have the Raffle Blitz thing tomorrow which will be mucho fun *NOT*, but then we get to do floor crew for color guard and that's fun. The Woodland's are performing so I'm all excited. I love their show so much. Well I'm gonna go get ready for bed!

I'm in computer science right now and we're not doing anything. I'm bored because Kirstin had to finish her government hw and now I have nothing to do. But it's ok because I can update my journal which I haven't done in a few days. We have a stat test tomorrow. ew. PALs went to ROPES on Tuesday and that was surprisingly fun. Our group was pretty cool because we all listened and junk and there weren't any "leaders" to be annoying thankfully. Otherwise this field trip could have been really not so great. We almost have our prom group all together! I think we'll have just about everything planned by this weekend. Very exciting! Well, I'm going to check for more limo services online to see if there are any cheaper rates. They're so stupid because they bump all the prices up for prom but oh well.

Practicing isn't too much fun when you haven't played your horn for a week straight. It's kinda ouch right now lol. The best things in the world are naps. I took one for like 3 hours today. Except the phone kept ringing and waking me up. Well I gotta go type up this practice card thing for tomorrow. Yay for short entries!

I had a really good conversation with Dominic tonight. I'm so glad we talked. I don't know if it actually helped anything, but I think we both misunderstood things and it make us feel better lol. Or at least me. Anyways, my mom and I are going to some place tomorrow to look for band banquet decoration stuff so that should be fun. Carmina Burana's tomorrow night which I'm very excited about. I love Carmina Burana! We played the band version in last year's region band. Oh! We got the CD from region band this year. We sound like absolute poop. That makes me so mad because we had such a great band with awesome players but the clinician wasn't good at all. He spent more time playing is little electronic sax thingy so we didn't get to learn near as much as we could have. Oh well. It's just kinda sad because it was senior year and the last time a lot of us will ever get to do region band stuff. Well I'm getting kinda sleepy so I'm off to bed.

I just received all of my comments from a previous entry. I appreciate the concern, but all this seems so immature. 8th grade called and they want their mentality back. Oh, and by the way, for all the government people out there, we have something called the Bill of Rights. In the first Amendment, there's a little thing called freedom of speech, which I think includes a livejournal. Please stop making this harder than it is, because you might really be hurting some people and I think you know who. I wouldn't be saying any of this if you weren't hurting Hailey. Just think about that.

hey guys! i'm at my house right now. ross, madison, hailey, and i went to del pueblo and i had kids enchiladas and they were yummy in my tummy. anyways. then we came back to mi casa and listened to band nerd music for such a long time. then we watched a couple friends episodes from season 6. they were very humorous. then we went to walgreens and hailey bought nail polish and i bought a magazine. in the parking lot some rowdy boys did some obscene things. bad boys. anyways, we hung a tiger and a flower out of my car driving home, breaking the law that says you can't have anything protruding from your car more than 6 inches, or so ross says. but i don't think cops care because we saw a couple. we tried to beautify ross but he politely declined. =(. several times. now we're listening to more band nerd music. yep yep.

earlier today ashley, hailey, and i went mystic tanning and it was interesting. it tastes very not good. oh well. i don't know what else to write so hasta pasta! ~meredith =)

Tonight I found out I'm definitely addicted to caffine. Kinda sad. I had this bad headache all day and it kept getting worse. While my mom and I were on our way to pick my dad up from work so we could go eat, I took some Advil. For me, Advil kicks in pretty fast. It took like 40 minutes to get to the restaurant after I took the Advil and it never worked. I still had this pounding headache. We get to the restaurant, I get a Dr.Pepper, drink a little, and my headache vanishes. lol. Oh well. Anyways, we ate at America's tonight. It's like this fancy restaurant my dad suggested we go to for prom. It was awesome! They serve these little fried banana chip things and they were soooo good. I thought they'd have a banana taste to them but they don't. The food's amazing and the atmosphere's really cool. After that, we went to the Galleria to return the purse I had bought for prom. My mom said it cost too much so I had to take it back and get another one. So I took it back and got another equally as cute. Then my mom and I went to look at shoes in Nordstrom's. *they have the best shoe selection ever* I saw this really really really cute pair of Steve Madden's. They're a light brown this a little bow across the toes and a short heel. I had some money leftover since I got a cheaper purse so I bought some new shoes. yay! Shopping's the most fun thing ever I think. Especially shoe shopping. It always makes me very happy. Changing the subject, I can't wait until we graduate. I'm really sick of high school. I don't know. Sometimes it just hits me how sick of high school I am. College is going to be awesome. *Go Red Raiders lol* We only have like 40 something days left. Hopefully they'll go by fast. Oh yeah! Chris made it into Curtis! So yay for Chris because he worked really hard and now he'll become this amazing trombone player in a symphony which is awesome.

[ mood | awake ]

So it's like 2 in the morning and I'm wide awake for some reason. I started watching American Idol like at 12:30 and it like woke me up the more I watched it. I'm a big dork and get excited about lame TV shows. But anyways, Jon Peter Lewis is my favorite. He's so adorable! He like dances and stuff and it's so cute. And he has a really good voice too! My second favorite is La Toya. She's awesome. Then Diana because she's like 16 and has this amazing voice. Tonight, my family and I plus Madison went tot he rodeo to see Kelly Clarkson, Jessica Simpson, and Nick Lachey. It was lots of fun. We rode all the carnival rides. omg like right before we were about to get on the spaceship ride where the floor goes out and spins you around real fast, this guy throws up. So they have to clean up the puke before we can get on and they pour some water over it. Then they turn the ride on and the water like sprays onto the people standing in line and that was just pretty gross. I love carnival rides though because they're all the ones that spin you around real fast and make you feel like throwing up but you never do. After we rode all the rides, we went into the stadium and tried to find shirts but they didn't have any cute ones. I was sad but that went away quickly because they definitely had Dippin Dots! How exciting! The concert was awesome. Jessica couldn't find the stairs whenever she was getting off the stage and that was funny. They had all these extra cameras set up for The Newlyweds so that was cool. When we were waiting in the parking lot to leave after the concert, the cars wouldn't move. We sat there forever. To entertain ourselves, we hung the stuffed animals we won at the carnival out the window and tried to entertain the people in the car behind us. They just looked at us funny, but it was fun for us. Um...yeah. That's all that happened at the rodeo tonight. Now it's like 2:05 so I think I'm gonna go see what's on MTV.

Today was pretty fun. After going out with Kirstin I went shopping with my mom (always fun b/c shoppings awesome) and then met up with Hailey at the movies. We saw Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. It was pretty cute but I think it'd make a good rental. After that we went to Madison's and helped her pick out stuff to wear in her senior pics tomorrow. Then we got online on both the computers at her house and played this mean joke on Ross. We won't go into that though lol. At like 10 we went to Denny's and met up with Chris R., Pat, and Patrick. That was fun b/c they're all funny. Um...I guess that's about it. I'm about to go watch some teeny-bopper chick flick movie b/c I'm really in the mood for one for some reason.

I just got back from lunch with Kirstin. It was very exciting. We went to Visage Day Spa and made our appointments for prom! Hopefully my parents will let me skip. I'm still workin on that lol. Then we went to Paulie's and I had a very yummy club sandwich. We split this clover cookie and their cookies are the best! I'm all happy now with prom and lunch and the cool cookie! I'm really glad I got to spend time with Kirstin too. We don't hang out that much but when we do we always have fun. Uh oh. Now I'm getting sad because we're graduating and I'm not going to see people. Ok. Done with that thought lol. I don't like dwelling on the sad parts of graduating. Anyways, I'm off to go watch tv!

This weekend has been pretty blah. This stupid fat lady disqualified the color guard at the competiton b/c the floor ballooned or something. And they probably would have gotten first too which sux. Today it was all rainy and I hate rainy days, but it was ok b/c I got to take a nap. We played MASH at Madison's house and that was pretty fun. I'm kinda mad right now for Hailey. People are acting really dumb to her. She's getting blamed for stuff that she shouldn't. One of her "good friends" claims that she hangs out with other people too much and Dominic said I changed Hailey and doesn't like me for it. I don't really think that's the most legitimate reason to dislike someone but whatever floats his boat I don't really care. I just feel bad b/c he didn't wanna tell Hailey how I made her change or whatever and she was getting mad and she doesn't deserve to be mad about this b/c she's too nice for people to give her all of this drama and she doesn't deserve to be stressed out. I know none of this makes sense but oh well. I just hate it when people are mean to people I really care about. Whatever. I'm gonna go.

I get to sleep in tomorrow! How exciting, I know lol. Tonight was pretty fun. Hailey, Ross, and I went to Texas Roadhouse and then to Madison's soccer game against Cy-Creek. They tied Creek, but it was still a really good game. The ref was dumb but oh well. After that we went to La Madeline and I ate a yummy cheesecake. Then Ross and I went over to Ashley's house and that was fun because we just talked about funny stuff. This week went on forever so I'm glad it's over. Every day felt like a Friday which made it go by even slower. I think because we had a recording session on Monday it made it feel like a Thursday so every day felt like a Friday (that probably doesn't make any sense but oh well). Tomorrow we get to do floor crew again for color guard and that's always fun. Oh! We had the PALs celebration thing last night and, since we were already by the gyms, we went and watched the color guard do a run-through at the end of their practice and it was AMAZING! They looked so good and nailed all their tosses and junk. It was great. I'm so proud. I wish I could be in color guard and be all grrrr with rifle tosses and stuff. lol. I'm a dork but that's ok. Well I'm getting sleepy so I'm off to bed!

I just finished my application for AFA *yay*. At least this way I can stay in shape for summer and not have to get a job. (AFA=American Festival of the Arts, it's like a 5 week long music camp) Anyways, all this prom stuff is definitely stressful. Why can't guys just ask people so at least you can know if you need to start worrying about finding a date or not? It's realyl dumb. And we have to start really organizing all this stuff and it's a lot of fun whenever you don't know who you're going with yet. Grrness. We had our government test today and it raped me big time. Oh well. At least all my tests are over and it's only 3 days til Spring Break. That's about all the excitement in my life right now. Oh! Hailey and I went to the mall today and made our make-up appointments for prom. That was fun. Except it just makes me think of the fact that I still don't have a date. lol
