If I Was In A Playhouse

Found another memorable paper that I know will be just as interesting to you as it is to me. /sarcasm

I just realized unless you know anything about Html, you won't get that joke. And now I feel really geeky.

This one actually has a date on it - April 16, 1997, so I was 14 years old. This must have been a school assignment about a book we were reading because it looks like I was answering questions that were supposed to be filled in at the end (i.e. "I would take... I would gain... I would miss...). Any guesses what "playhouse" I might be referring to? It is absolutely a possibility that I created a homework assignment for myself as to what I would take with me if I stayed in mine and Sally's playhouse for a year. Seriously, big dork over here. Anyway, here it is.

In staying in the playhouse for a year, I would need the following things:

I. Some books I would take are: comic books, such as Archie and the Gang, mysteries, such as The Westing Game (side note: I don't care how old you are, if you've never read this book you have to borrow it from me! So good!!), novels, such as the V.C. Andrews series, science fiction stories, such as Singularity, magazines, such as Mad and Cracked, and teenager magazines such as Seventeen, Teen, and YM, and encyclopedias.

II. Foods I would take are: meat, bread, milk, a thermos for water, lunchables, t.v. dinners, ABCs and 123s, and Dinosaurs.

III. I would just take about ten pairs of clothes, because I don't care about wearing dirty clothes. If they got too dirty, I would wash them in the sink.

IV. Other things I would take are: a camera, a Bible, a CD player or tape player, tapes or CDs, portable television, portable refrigerator, microwave, laundry detergent, deck of cards, VCR, movies, violin, clarinet, bass clarinet, keyboard, earphones, hair clips, comb or brush, towels, feminine products, makeup, jewelry, Game Boy with games (not exactly roughing it...)

V. I would exercise with the exercises in the old magazines such as sit-ups, chin-ups, push-ups, etc.

VI. I would miss my family, my friends, parties, little night sounds, things that usually scare me like weird sounds, the fights I get in with my family.

VII. I would gain a better spiritual life, a better understanding of myself, more knowledge, more self-control, and I would be stronger in mind and body.

You can't make this stuff up.

I like this. If only our house had room for all this stuff.
