Sindy's Blog - December 16, 2004

December 16, 2004

Simon might have gotten a dog this Thanksgiving, but I finally talked my mom into letting me have a small pet. We went and picked her up yesterday at the pet store and she is soooo cute. Oh yeah, she's a chinchilla and her name is Penelope. And, she is all mine! I don't have to share her with Amy which is so great.

Yeah, I've never actually had a pet before so this is kind of new to me. I mean I get the whole give them water and food part but I don't totally know what else I should be doing. She's small and I can hold her when I want, but for the most part she's supposed to stay in her cage. Mom's still a little worried that she's going to wake up in the middle of the night with Penelope crawling across her face. Moms can be so dramatic.

I still haven't had a chance to show Penelope to Kaelin - I think he's really going to love her. I think A.J. would really love her too but she's still not talking to me. I honestly do not know what her problem is! I think Anna is going to come over after school tomorrow to study, so at least I'll be able to show her.

I have this make-shift cage for Penelope right now, but I guess I should buy her a real one. I wonder if the people at the pet store could help me pick stuff for her. Probably. Do any of you have a chinchilla? I know they're a little exotic, but I just didn't really want a hamster or anything like that. if you have any tips!

Peace Out,

    Tell that girl that she looks so horrible she makes roadkill look beautiful. Clap your hands really loud with nobody looking and then say "HEY WHY'D YOU HIT ME?" (Don't thank me thank Diary of a Wimpy Kid) Tell someone. Tell a teacher or somebody Or ignore that excuse for a person and get on with your life without her I mean, it.
