Maggie's Memos: A Bit of Randomness

Hey everyone...what's up?  Maggie here.  Just thought I'd do a post so you'd all remember that I'm a part of things here on "Jane Austen and Unicorns" too.  Tess and Emma have been hogging all of the posts lately, so I figured it was about time for me to do one before they took over again. :}

Not much has been happening around here for the 18 inchers.  This is the time of year where Mama starts getting really busy, so we haven't seen much of her.  It's cool, though.  We have our own rooms full of things to entertain us, and we keep each other company, so it works out okay.

Speaking of our rooms, Rachel wanted me to show you guys these Muppets posters that Mama found for her on the trip she took earlier this month.  Huh, sure.  Bring back a souvenir for Rachel and nothing for me.  Like I care. 

Mama's recently discovered that old VHS cases make great doll-sized posters.  This was the first time she used the bigger "clam shell" case ones, though.  She just took out the paper with the artwork on it and cut it to size.  I don't know if I'm explaining that in the best way, but hopefully you know what I mean. ;)  Rachel is super excited because these are from her two very favorite Muppet movies.  And I have to admit, even though I'm not the biggest Muppet fan, the posters do look pretty cool.

Rachel has been really busy practicing her rollerblading.  I got tired of it after a while, but she's loving it.  It's starting to make me dizzy watching her blade in circles around the room all day long. 

In other news, Jenna and Hayden have continued plotting about the Literary Ladies Society idea.  Ick.  I was really hoping they'd give up on that. :(  Luckily for me, they officially came to the decision that only those who were interested in participating needed to join.  So far Jenna, Hayden, Emma, and Tess have volunteered.  Hailey, Charlie, and Rachel are still deciding.  I gave my immediate refusal.  Tess tried to sweet talk me into joining, so I told her I'd join on the day she watched "The Avengers" with me.  Funny, I haven't heard anything from her since. ;)  

Oh yeah, and I forgot to tell you guys that Mama got "The Avengers" on Blu-ray for her birthday!!  Rachel and I are sooo excited!  We haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but hopefully soon.

Anyway, back to Jenna and Hayden and their nefarious schemes.  Jenna apparently suggested that the LLS should meet once a month, for starters.  She'll be talking to all of the active members soon to figure out which day would work the best for everyone.

Oh, and she asked me to show off her wall, too.  She now has a Chococat poster and two little My Melody thingees in addition to her "Les Mis" poster.  I'm sure your lives are all better now that you've seen this.

Of course, Hayden and Jenna's pride and joy is the map of Equestria that Mama got for them at Walmart.  I guess there were some free promotional posters there, and since they both enjoy My Little Pony so much, Mama thought they'd like having it for their room.

Because Jenna ran out of room on her wall, Hayden ended up with "The Princess Bride" poster on her side.  Conveniently, it's one of her favorite movies too, so it all works out okay. 

Hayden is super excited to be in on the planning part of the LLS...this is the first time she's really had something "important" to do since she moved in with us.  More power to her.  As long as I don't have to be involved.

I guess that's about it for this rambly post.  I'm still hoping Tess caves and watches "Avengers" with me.  Some parts she'd really like...just not any scenes involving injuries, intensity, or fighting.  So the whole 10 minutes she'll enjoy will be worth it, right? ;)

Talk to you guys long as I can get a word in edgewise between my other two chatty blog authors. ;)

It's Thor paper dolls! Just thought you might be interested!
