Wow. I have stories tonight. First off, let's start with the lovely adventure I had when I was pet sitting. You'll need to know the main cast in this. It includes myself, Bart the dog, and Boo and Cala the cats. I get in the door this evening and Bart looked like he really wanted me to let him out in the backyard. So, I closed the door (so I thought, it must have been open a crack), let him do his business and came back in. I then went to where their food dishes were. The ones for the cats are on a shelf higher than Bart's (this is important later). I get over there and fill the ones for the cats, and Cala immediately starts eating out of Boo's dish, which she apparently likes to do. I go down to Bart's only to find that he's managed to get a ton of his dry dog food into his water. It looked and smelled disgusting. I had to figure out how to clean this up. While I was trying to drain the water out (and not hit Cala with my elbow), I wondered why I hadn't seen Boo. I thought I had heard him mewing, but he was no where in sight.

It was at this point that I heard the storm door close. After saying a choice word, I raced outside, making sure the door was shut this time, and began looking for Boo. I could hear him mewing, but I couldn't see him. I finally found him under their car. He would not let me get to him. After probably 20 minutes of a battle of wills, I realized the only way I would ever get him was if I got him far enough out from under the car that I could grab him. Eventually, he left, but went under a bush which made it even harder to get him. The worst part was he was on the edge of a retaining wall and I was afraid he was going to leap down into the neighbor's backyard. Fortunately, he seem interested in the bush and followed it around to face the street. He was slowly making his way toward where I was standing, and I was creeping forward. As he inched along, eating the grass, which was gross but I figured getting him inside was most important at this point, he ended up standing directly beneath me. I reached down, grabbed him, and went back inside, scolding him all the way. Then there was still the case of Bart's water dish. I finally dumped it in the trash and refilled the water at the sink, since I was holding the dish. Normally, I put it in a jug and bring it over. As I was about to put it back in Bart's spot, Cala decided that it would be a good time to leap up to her shelf. Yeah. Water everywhere. So not only did I have to refill his dish, I had to clean up the water on the floor! Lots of fun...

Another reason this was a mess goes with my next story, also why I'm writing this at 1 am. Me, Lindsey, and Rachel went to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tonight. I was supposed to meet them at 7:30, but I got there at seven and Boo alone took me half an hour. Anyway, we hung out for a while and stuff. On to the movie! It was so funny. I loved it! It followed the book as well as I can remember, too. The ending was really weird, but over all very clever and funny movie. I suggest it. Heh, the Oompa Loompas are great. As is Johnny Depp. But that's no surprise. The kids were all really good in their roles, as well. And one of the grandmother's is hilarious. "I love grapes!" We then had to go out to Wal Mart and buy chocolate, which I am in the process of eating. Yum...

My mom has finished Harry Potter six. I start reading it tomorrow! Yay! I'm kind of nervous, but she said that nothing happened that she didn't expect, which made me feel better. She also told me to have set times to read, if that says anything about page turning ability. I also found out that the Goblet of Fire movie comes out in November.

One last amusing story from Saturday night. I was watching Inuyasha, big surprise. There was a character that I knew was coming up named Bankotsu and I really wanted to hear how his dub voice sounds. The guy who does him, Matt Hill, has done characters like Kira on Gundam Seed and Ed on Ed Edd n Eddy, so I didn't know what to expect. I pretty much know what he can do, so I figured out a certain voice he could do that would be great, even though I know very little about Bankotsu. Anyway, he had about two lines at the end of the episode and it was exactly how I wanted him to do it! I was really excited. In my happiness, I said "Bankotsu!" a la Ed because I'm prone to talking like him. Then I realized that the same guy does both of their voices. So I started laughing hysterically and my mom wondered what I was doing.

Okay, that's it. One overly interesting day plus a bonus story! Don'tcha love my incredibly long entries?
