This is the Days I knew and loved....all shit is hitting the fan - in a big way. Stefano has come out of the paralytic state that Marlena put him in after what he did to John, and vengeance will be his!!
here's a little refresher on what Marlena did to him:
and here is what's in store for her and everyone else:
So, as most of you should know by now, I have the extreme pleasure of doing fun and different things with my 9 year old niece, that she (or me) wouldn't otherwise have anyone to do them with. You can see my other blogs for the funny details of some of those instances.
So yesterday, I decided to teach her the campy Eurovision song "All Kinds Of Everything" and we recorded a duet! hahahaha. This is not the first time that I've taught her songs that we later performed, but it is the first time we recorded it. As you guys also probably know, I've recently discovered the addictive fun of recording myself singing (hey! it's fun for me! and at least I'm not buying anyone as my pet! LOL)
So it was only natural for me to incorporate that into my latest babysitting adventure! The result is rather endearing, so get your "Awwwwww" faces on ;)
P.S. I do not intentionally put on that "accent" when I sing, it just happens. Not to mention any names, but I reckon it is a result of many many years of listening to a certain singer singing ;)
No, really! I was babysitting my niece when we just had a really cool sunshower, so I took her out to look for rainbows and we found it (actually there were 2 - it was a double arch, but you can't see that in the pics)
So I ran in and grabbed my camera (and tracked mud all through the house...oops)
I adjusted the gamma and saturation on some of these to get the best effect:
So anyone who read my last blog with the same title knows that my niece and I have some interesting visits. Yesterday was no exception. (Incidentally we had a very important talk about my eye and the incident from my last blog - this girl never ceases to astound me with the wisdom and maturity beyond her 9 years, but I digress).
So today, after playing "2 Square" outside in the small window of sunshine we had (she proudly proclaimed that she is the Queen of the Court" at her school), we went inside my parents house and she decided she wanted to play "school" since we hadn't done so, in a very long time.
We always use the same names - she is Mrs. Sarafina, and I am Wyatt Matthew Halliwell. Now normally, she gets bored if I play a good student, she prefers me to be a trouble maker so that she can punish me with the usual detention, no recess, notes home to the parents, etc. At first, this time was no exception. I called her a bad teacher and she punished my by letting the "other kids" go to recess, while I had to sit at my desk with my head down. I told her it was cruel and unusual punishment that was akin to torture, and that I was going to report her to the School Board. She told me to go ahead, because her brother is the Mayor, and she can do whatever she wants. So asked her if I had to remind her who my parents were - VERY powerful witches! So she relented. Not only did I get my 5 minute recess (real time - about 45 seconds), when I returned, I got a surprise that it was time for a very special Art class.
Now apparrently bored with talking to other imaginary students, she suggests that I am in "Special Ed" and thats why I am now the only student. Naturally, I was appalled by this, and countered with the reasoning that as the prodigal son of both a Charmed One and an Elder, it would make much more sense that I'm extremely gifted and am in a very advanced class, thus explaining the lack of other students. She agreed. So....on to Art Class.
Mrs. Sarafina now morphed into two teachers - the first, herself, who would be there to monitor the class, and also as the art teacher, simply known as "Mrs. Art Teacher"
They both announced a very special assignment - "Fashion Design" Using ony construction paper, crayons, and scissors, I had the choice of making a Kimono, or "Any other outfit you want" (Interesting choice - I chose the latter, while Mrs. Sarafina chose the former).
here is my project:
Anyway, both Mrs. Sarafina and Mrs. Art Teacher were both so impressed with my design, that they wanted to take it to computer class and have me model it on my "virtual self" (her words and idea! really!) My niece had already thrown away her half-done Kimono, as she was on to knew ideas. Apparently she has been playing around with photo editing on her laptop that she got for Christmas, and thats how she decided that "I" would model my own design.
So off to the computer and scanner we went, and got to work. She had me go to my Myspace so she could choose an image of myself to model the outfit in. Done, she then did most of the work (I just helped a lil bit and cleaned up the finished product a bit.) She then had me put it on my father's computer as the wallpaper so her "Nana" could see it. So my mom came and this is what she saw:
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Now the real kicker to this story is what came next, My mother is chuckling, looking at the picture, and my niece turns to her and says to my mother " He's really in love with himself, isn't he?"
Oh No she didn't!! Oh, yes....she did....eruptions of laughter followed and I think I realized that that was my payback for having my polka dotted dinosaurs eat her teddy bears for supper!
Now, I know I can be a tiny bit vainsometimes, after all, I am a Leo, but "he really is in love with himself"?! who came up with this idea in the first place? hahahaha......I got Punk'd.....remember what I said about her being wise and mature beyond her years? I shudder to think of her in High School.
