Dear Carnation, I know, I know.  I haven't written in here for ages.  Well, a month to be exact.  I'm really sorry about that.  Alot has happened!  We went on our Biology trip to Rosario Beach.  It was an okay trip. I'll tell you about it later sometime.  [A note from adult Mindi:  This is a lie.]

Also, we moved to our new house.  It is in East Olympia.  My room is pretty cool.  It's a disaster, as usual.

About a week before we moved away, Colie our cat  ran away. We haven't seen her since.  I miss her, but I don't want to cry.  I've been crying alot lately.  (I'll explain later, if I feel like it.)  [A note from adult Mindi:  Apparently, I didn't ever feel like it.]

What else?  Hmmmmmm... well, I've received my yearbook.  It was an okay yearbook.  A few people wrote some really raw things in there.

The weather has been pretty hot here lately.  So we go to have - wow! - shorts day.  In my opinion, shorts day should be on whatever day that we students choose to wear shorts.

We had our Fun Run.  I'll get back to that later.  Everything has been fine with Liz and me.  We haven't had any fights to speak of lately.

Oh, I guess I might as well talk about our Fun Run.  It was on May 5.  (I am telling you this for a good reason.)  Okay, the beginning of the  Fun Run was awful. Liz was ticked at me because I wanted to run and she wanted to walk.  So Curt was walking with us then.  Liz goes, "Fine. I'll just go and walk with Sara."

So she left and I was with Curt and Dylan.  So I was talking to them.  Wait!  Just let me backtrack for a second before I continue -- okay the day before the Fun Run, May 4, I told Liz that I was just about to give up on Curt and that I liked someone else.  (He lives across the street from me.)  So appearantly she told him that I was "about to give up on him."  Well, she told me she told him so she obviously did.  Shut up, Mindi, you are rambling.

Okay, so I felt kind of bad and was going to call him that night and tell him I wasn't going to like him anymore and I was going to tell him why.  So I called and he wasn't home.  (I am soooo lucky that he wasn't.)  So I asked his mom to have him call me back and he never did.  So I was pretty mad about that.  The next morning--the day of the Fun Run -- Curt had this thing on his hand.  He had cut himself and had to have 7 stitches.  That was why he hadn't called me.  So we started talking just before the Fun Run started and that was fine.

Now I will go back to when I was talking to Curt and Dylan.  So Dylan left after awhile and it was just me and Curt.  Then, okay, I must collect my thoughts--we were walking over to the table which had the water on it and Curt said, "Can I ask you something?" So I said sure.  So he said, "Will you go out with me?"

I mean, Holy S***!  I was just about to give up on this guy and here he was - asking me out!  I stood there and I stuttered out some idiot question like are you serious or something like that, I don't remember.  So finally I got my act together and I said, "yes."

So now we are going out or going steady or going together or whatever you want to call it.  It is very weird.  It's almost exactly how it was before except we stand closer and I guess we sort of talk more.  Sort of.  Also, I feel alot more self consious when I'm around him and stuff.  People keep asking me stuff like, "Are you happy?" Ya know.  That kind of crap.  And I guess I am.

My feelings for him are so deep and I am afraid to tell him how much I like him.  I don't want to scare him off.  I wonder how he feels about me right now.

Mikey keeps asking if we've kissed or hugged or if he's put his arm around me yet.  Hell, we haven't even held hands yet.  That is perfectly fine with me.  Not to sound like a prude or anything, but I am glad he's not trying to rush me.  We've only been going out for 3 days.

Today, I got to see Mikey's bare ass.  Yes, folks, Mikey mooned me.  Not intentionally, though. He meant to moon Liz, but I accidentally saw. HA!  I'm not supposed to tell anyone.  Mikey said so.
