Dumb and Dumber

I have done some pretty stupid things in my day. Here are a few examples:

Almost breaking my neck on the trampoline,

Getting busted on camera when I was just about to pour water on my sister's head,
But these are not as dumb as... well, here's my story. Our babysitter Rebecca was over. I was bored and when I get bored, I suggest that you don't listen to my ideas. But, I had done it before and it was fun so I covered the bottom of the stairs with pillows and went into the laundry room. "Why don't we slide down the stairs in a laundry basket? I've done it before," I suggested. Rebecca hesitated but I bribed her into it. But, what do I know? I helped Annabel and Shawn as I guided them down the stairs and then it was my turn. This is the part where I feel sorry for myself. I slid down and my hips and below hit the pillows, but my face hit the wall just missing the glass door. I cut my lip, and I dented the wall, and I had to ice my lip, and it bled. A lot. And yeah. Sorry I didn't take a picture of this catastrophe, I didn't think of it at the time, but you can kind of get the idea.

The Recording Studio # 3!

I have made my two first CDs: Skywriting and Running Home, but I'm making another one. Seven hours and it's tiring, but boy am I having fun! Now that I'm 12, I can do guitar picking and my dad/producer and I have made guitar, piano, and harmonica arrangements! My recording engineer is named Zen. He is great. A really kind, responsible, generous, and fun guy is what we've been looking for! I've been recording since Tuesday and I've gotten eight songs in three days. We probably would have gotten all ten but my guitar needed new strings. So, on lunch break good ole' Zen changed them for us! Then I did the vocals while my dad messed around with it. My guitar should be ready today and it better be because I am!
