firsts with a friend

it was a pretty boring school week, but pretty fun after school week :P

on wednesday, after school, i went with ondriona and her little siblings (2 girls, 3 boys) to tj max so she could return some clothes and get some new ones. she returned around 3 WHOLE outfits and got $84 in return in gift card which sucked for her cuz she could only use the card at tj max and no where else. i had to put the card in my back pocket cuz she almost lost it/couldnt find it not even 5 minutes after she got the card :P

we went around looking at the shirts and shorts cuz she needed some more shorts, and teasing each other that this piece of clothes was perfect for each other like what i do with everyone i go shopping with, and one of her little sisters trailing after us trying to get ondriona to buy her some candy and being denied terribly (funnily) every time.

i had spent all of my money at BAM buying mine and shelle's manga last sunday, so i was broke and didnt bother bringing any money with me when i went shopping with her. but she persisted and nagged at me to get an outfit that i liked and she'd buy it even tho i told her that she didnt need to and that i didnt really want anything. i ended up getting some black cargo shorts and a green mountain dew t-shirt.

the one thing i really, really wanted (and acted like a little kid bouncing up and down and saying please, please, please), i found at the end when ondriona was at the cash register buying our clothes. i was looking at the stand of candy that was up front, trying to find some good candy since her little sister kept on getting some not so tasty or too expensive for that little amount of candy, which was why ondriona wouldnt get anything for her (that, and she's always mean to her siblings in a funny way, you just gotta see it first hand), when i found a little box of mini gummy frogs that cost $3.

so i ran over to ondriona as the cashier lady was ringing everything up and asked her to get it. she eventually got it for me, and we ate it walking over to rue 21 to look at their clothes. i hid it in my jacket pocket and we all were munching on them while we were looking at everything.

i found this awesome pair of sleeping pants that were checkered and were a bajillion different colors, and i found this sleeping shirt that said i'm not short, i'm fun size that ondriona loved. we switched the other shirts and pants so that we got what we wanted cuz the clothes came in pairs and were laughing the whole time.

and i asked ondriona if she could buy me a pair of flip flops cuz i havent had a pair since forever, and they only costed $3. she let me get one and she got a pair of heels for herself.

then we left and started walking around the parking lot in wal-mart, looking for their grandma (she doesnt look anywhere near that old) to take us home. which we did eventually.

that was the first time any of my friends have ever bought clothes for me. i dont think i've ever bought clothes for any of my friends before. arm warmers, yeah, but that doesnt count.

anyways, yesterday, i did alot of things with ondriona and her family. they picked me up around 12 and we went to lows to get some stuff cuz they're moving in the summer, so they need to fix up their house a bit.

we spent some time looking at the white paint, trying to figure which one could go over dark blue walls, before we got help from one of the workers who told us that we could just get the cheap white paint we were planning on getting in the beginning and do 2 coats (what i suggested in the beginning) instead of getting a primer and using the white paint on top afterwords (more expensive).

then we went around the store, getting everything on the list their grandma wrote (their mom's in alaska, so she's taking care of them til their mom comes back) and goofing off and touching things.

after that, we went to wal-mart to get some things and ice cream and syrup cuz they were planning on having milkshakes later.

and then we went to their house which was around 4-5. ondriona had already warned me that it was a war disaster mess because they were packing everything; it didnt look that bad.

after putting all of the groceries away, we watched anger management while eating hot pockets as the little twin boys, jason and jasper, took a nap. since we couldnt really decide on what to watch next and me not really wanting to watch another movie, ondriona let me help cook dinner with her. my first real chance of cooking! :D

we were having ribs for dinner and ondriona was gonna hafta cook it since her grandma was only giving instructions/advice while she was on the phone in the kitchen. ondriona was saying that we needed a side dish and asked me what do i usually eat as a side dish when i ate ribs, so i told her that i usually ate it with rice cuz i'm asian.

that reminded her of the fried rice she ate at my house the last time she came over, and she asked me if i knew how to make it. i told her that i didnt, but it couldnt be that hard cuz it's pretty easy to make, and i could always call my mom for instructions. so we ended up making that, too.

it took forever to cook the rice in a pot on the stove, and after i called my mom for some help, we started preparing for everything else while the ribs were frying on the stove. ondriona's grandma was cutting up the onions and carrots while we were defrosting the peas and getting the eggs out.

in the end, we created a huge mess frying everything together cuz there was so much rice and stuff in the frying pan, that little bits fell off the sides when ondriona stirred it around. it didnt taste like my mom's but it was our first attempt at it and it was still pretty good. the rice was too sticky and we didnt have the right sausage, but other than that, i think it would of turned out just like the original! XP

we were finally eating around 8 and i was showing ondriona kevjumba on youchoob on her grandma's laptop while we were eating at the kitchen table. then we remembered about the milkshakes, so we got the stuff out only to find out that only ondriona and i could have some cuz it was late and the other kids' bedtimes.

so we made enough for 2 and drank them while watching some more vids on youchoob. i thought that the time was a few minutes before 8, NOT a few minutes til 9 until ondriona told me that, cuz the clock on the laptop was actually an hour early cuz it was san fransisco time, not GA, so i had to rush home.

surprisingly, mommy wasnt really mad. maybe cuz ondriona's grandma came with me to help explain how we got the time wrong and how time passed while making dinner. either way, she told us that next time, to leave a number so she could call.

that was the first time i've tried to make real asian food (other than instant ramen in a pot) and the first time i've ever been over to one of my friend's house.

i'm doing alot of firsts with ondriona (if you havent noticed, i've live a VERY sheltered life, here), and i'm happy that it's with her, but i'm sad that she's moving away to florida this summer. this is one of the reasons why i kind of dont want to make that many friends here at this school, half of the people move away.

but yeah, today, ondriona called me and told me that they were starting to paint one of their rooms and i wanted to go and help too, but when i called mommy to ask if i could go over for a while, she said no, so i couldnt. she didnt come home til 7; i could of totally gone over and came back before she knew it, but i didnt cuz i have lots of things to ask her over the following weekends.

ya see, weeks ago, i made plans with kyle to go see a movie with him and catch up some time this weekend. but i found out that this weekend is ondriona's grandma's birfday and they wanted me to come over to make another asian dish for dinner and going to IHOP for lunch cuz i've never been there. and i had made plans to go and watch the new dragonball evolution movie with krista hopefully (but didnt) last weekend, but she emailed me about having a sleepover with haley, too and going to watch the movie while they were over, sometime soon, too, so i have alot to ask for.

i was hopefully planning on going over to ondriona's house on saturday and then going to the movies with kyle on sunday, but i'm not too sure now. usually, when shelle goes out one day, my mom usually wont let her go out the next day ...i think, so i dont know if i'll be able to go to the movies with kyle or not. and then, i dont wanna choose between them cuz i had already planned this for a while with kyle, but at the same time, it's ondriona's grandma's birfday and i still need to talk to krista about the sleepover.

and then, i'm not even sure if i'll be able to go over to ondriona's house on saturday or not cuz i want to go over sometime this week when i'm not too busy to help them paint their rooms. maybe i shouldnt go... -__-

not to mention, we're having EOCT's next week, so i'm gonna be pretty stressed/busy doing tons of worksheets to help me study for them this week. it's a good thing there's no EOCT for civics or elsed i'd die.

enough about that stuff, time for a little fangirling :P

today is zhou mi's birfday! the dood's turning 23! at least in the US, he is, not too sure about china tho ^^"

also, i'd like to give a late shout out to all of the april birfdays that's already passed: HAPPY BUFDAY EUNHYUK, SHIWON, JONGHYUN, and WANG ZI, and an early happy bufday to daesung who's on the 26th. i think april has the 2nd most birfdays. :D

check out this list of people who teens would welcome GLOBALLY. jaejoongie's all the way at the top at number 3; he's amazing. and there's heechul and yuhno and kibum (i dunno which one tho, since there are like, 4 kim kibums in the entertainment industry) and wu chun (fahrenheit)and jin (KAT-TUN) and hyunjoong (SS501) and hankyung XD

actually, that's all i have to spazz about for right now. i've been busy lately just reading stories on livejournal and trying (but failing) to watch the movies ondriona let me borrow, and waiting for the subbers on youchoob to finish subbing the star golden bell and star king episodes and other shows that suju have recently been on.

so that's all for now, folks! :P
