The Sky is Falling and My Umbrella is Pink.

As everyone knows, I love to be mainstream and do everything that everyone else is doing. Every time. Hahahahaha. That was a good one Kyle. Now tell them why you brought that up. Okay. I must gravely tell you, my alluring audience, that I did something that rings of clichedom, but is individual to me and who I am. That is my justification and I am almost practically aware of my surety that has been founded in a foggy haze of what once seemed like a good idea. I made a dixie cup list. It's like a bucket list only not a bucket and smaller in scale. Also, it won't end in death. At least not more than once. Here it is. I hope it gives you a pleasant feeling in one or both of your kidneys.

There you have it. If you were to ask me, although I don't suggest it, what I would want to have accomplished by the time school starts I would tell you these things. If you ask me what I would want to have accomplished just because I told you not to I will never speak to intelligibly again. Everything I say will be in my native tongue.                                


              Thanks for spending this time on Kyle's Wonderplace. Until next time, I'm kazoo Kyle wishing you a fantastic [insert time of day here]. 

                            -Imperialistically,
                                                     Kyle

I'll be honest the picture of the pig freaked me out. Alas, I love you list, have you considered doing some of these things at the same time? Sell an art piece is easy, your dad has them all around the house. Blue hair however-only temporary right, if it's permanent I will kill you. I really love you though you know. Lisa

Merrills Says:

I read your dixie cup list last week and later wondered if I had read it too quickly. I had to go back today and reread it just to make sure. You are so creative! What a great quality. I have great faith that the Dolly you make will be highly creative, breaking all the boundaries of normal mediocre dollies out there. Like Coraline on Acid or something. Thanks for entertaining me and making me realize that there is more to life than just plain old living!
