Wow! It's been so hot lately, we haven't felt like moving. It's cool cuz the place we're stayin' at has this crazy-huge pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas so you can just grab a book or your Gameboy and chill out. Nice.

Yesterday the heat was totally getting to us so, Simon and I decided to invent our very own summer treat to cool ourselves down. Amy, of course, had to weasel her way into helping us by whining to mom, who made me include her. Grrrr! Sometimes that kid really annoys me. Anyway, first we grabbed some juice and dumped it into some Dixie cups from the hotel bathroom, tossed some popsicle sticks in (we found those at a craft store) and put 'em in the minibar freezer. They were pretty good, but they melted so fast! I had drippy popsicle juice all over my arms. Not cool.

But we did, eventually, hit the jackpot when it comes to cool summer snacks. Since the popsicle thing wasn't working and we didn't have a ton of ingredients to play around with, we decided to throw our box of Poptarts in the freezer. Yeah, I know - it sounds a little weird but man, do they taste good. They cooled us down and there was no drippy mess. Trust me. You have to try this at home!

I'm going to have to share my new recipe with Dylan when I get home. That is if he remembers who I am. It's starting to feel like I've been away for years. Okay, a little of an exaggeration, but it does feel like this trip has been going on forever. But who am I to complain? A couple weeks of pool/sun time with my best friend is pretty great.

PS - Thanks to all you peeps who sent in your thoughts from my entry last week!

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
