I'm happy because I just got two BSC books that I've never read in the mail today. I got Abby's Twin and Mallory's Christmas Wish, which haven't been made into e-books, so I'm ecstatic. (It was the main reason I had chosen those two.)

Woohoo. Off to read them now.

Bridesmaid dresses

So I was looking at my friends wedding pictures and was absolutely astounded at how ugly their bridesmaid dresses were. (I'm not even kidding. The brides looked beautiful at least, but when hell freezes over and I get married, I kinda want my bridesmaids to you know... like me.). I know marriages aren't for everyone, but I want my fairytale gosh darn it!

Anyway, I was looking up ugly bridesmaid dresses out of sheer boredom and came across this one.

The picture on the left is the front, the one on the right is the back of the dress.

Look familiar?

What was Dawn thinking???

For mine I was thinking somewhere more along the lines of this: (For some reason it wouldn't let me save the whole picture)

Another Update + Kristy's Great Idea New WTF???

In the past almost two months I've moved from Texas to the little town east of St. Louis...moved into my settled in...registered for classes... and had my computer die.
Classes start the 24th of next month, anxious and nervous to get started... all music plus one math class... (math for liberal arts, thank god not college algebra)... including theory/lab III, some music culture thing, advanced keyboarding, choir, applied voice, and some other stuff I really can't remember at the moment because i need to get a new schedule... since I got mine a month and a half ago and of course I lost it.

Anyway, because i"ve had a dead computer, I've been doing a lot of reading of my baby-sitters club/little sister books (even though I should really be reading the million library books I checked out.), and today I started reading the first one... Kristy's Great Idea... and it struck me.


I don't think I've ever seen this mentioned before in various posts on the book, or discussions. (I might be wrong.) Claudia states Stacey being in her class... not one of her classes. (and they're all in the seventh grade, so that doesn't make any sense.) Kristy turns in her paper to Mr. Redmond at the beginning of school... and then goes to take her seat... when she was in his room at the end of the day the day before with the whole decorum thing.

Kristy also mentions that Claudia's TeacheR (no s) wouldn't let her wear her hat inside.

Now, I thought it was a little odd that they called it recess after lunch, but when I was in middle school, we were able to go outside after lunch, and I just assumed they had a wider area to hang out in.

Seriously, wtf Ann? What middle school (at least in the United STates, I can't speak for other countries) that's ONLY grades 6-8 (or 7-9 for that matter... and not K-8) do the kids only have one teacher throughout the day and don't change classes?

Has anyone else noticed this? Is it apparent in any other books when they're in seventh grade? i know when they're in eighth grade they definitely change rooms... yet another inconsistency. The only other seventh grade book I have in book form is Mary Anne Saves the Day, I'll have to go through that next to see if there are any clues to this bewildering mystery. (For me anyway.)
