Well, no, I'm not actually afraid of eyeballs, and they don't really bother me, but it's eyeball injuries, or things touching an eye, or looking at an eye that's not in a head, or when people flip up their eyelids... Anything to do with eyes doing something that they aren't supposed to do. Like when we watched the eye surgery in science... I couldn't even look. I'm not really usually a wimp about stuff, but when it comes to eyes, especially cutting one open... bleeeaaurgh.
I don't really know why, but when people say Chicagoland... I don't know. That just bothers me. A lot.
I think that explains itself. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think anyone really likes toenails...
4) Manikins without heads
Actually, I guess manikins with heads bother me just as much as manikins without heads... The faces are just so weird and creepy... But I don't know, it just seems like they should have a head, right? I'm not sure why, but I guess manikins in general just bother me...
5) Dogs with Painted Nails
"My dog loves a day at the spa, and then she puts her little tutu on and she gets a pedicure! She loves it!" Okay, no matter how much you treat your dog like a princess, IT DOES NOT LIKE IT'S PAINTED NAILS. No dog should have painted nails. Maybe it is your little baby, and maybe it's treated like a princess, but it's a dog! It likes to play, and dig in the mud! ...!
Top 5 Vacations I've Been On
I don't honestly remember being on this vacation. I must have been 2 or 3, and I only remember one thing about it: I remember standing in a room - and I was standing, no one was holding me - so I was standing and looking out a window, a floor-to-ceiling window, and I was looking out into a baseball field. I also remember my mom carrying me around in a gift shop. That's probably my earliest memory ever.
I really don't remember anything about this, but it was probably cool!
This is where I learned how to swim! We stayed in a hotel, and they had a pool. It was a nice pool, and I put my floaties on my arm, and swam back and forth, and back and forth, and back and forth... and back and forth... until my mom suggested I try to take the floaties off. I did, and I practiced and practiced in the shallow end until I got it! Also, there was absolutely nothing to eat there - apparently, every restaurant in Springfield closes at 6:00!
3) Lake Geneva
I go to Lake Lawn Lodge in Lake Geneva every year, sometimes more than once a year. I absolutely love it, it's like a home away from home. I know every twist and turn in it's long hallways, and I could stay there all the time. I've been going there since I can remember; it seems like forever. There was a period of time where it seemed like it was not doing so well, and then it actually closed for a while. I was so sad, because I thought it was closed for good, but it opened again! :D
My family goes here every year the weekend before school goes back. They have Irish Fest there (you might know or go to Summer Fest in Milwaukee; Irish Fest is on the same fest grounds). We stay at the Hyatt, and there is a waiter at the Hyatt restaurant that always serves us breakfast. He knows when we come every year, as we've been going there practically forever. We haven't been there for the last few years, because school went back earlier, before Irish Fest started the last few years.
Here's a bonus, because I feel like it:
4) Pleasant Prairie
There is a huge mall here, and we stay at the Raddison across the street. We shop shop shop, and when we're done, we go swimming. A couple days of this, once we've hit all the shops, we go home with our new goods and enjoy the fact that we got better than a hotel gift shop!
Yes, Springfield, Lake Geneva, and Milwaukee are tied for third. I kind of like Lake Geneva more, maybe a little bit, but I couldn't decide. So: I can't figure out how to end this blog so this blog is now done!
Welcome to Maura's Blog!
Hi, it's Maura! I have a dog, I run cross country, and you no longer have to read this blog because that pretty much sums up everything on here.
Check out my front page to see the books I want to read, if you want too, I can't force you to but you can if you want, well I don't know now I confused myself now so never mind.
As you can see, Dusty helps with the pictures. :D Thanks for being so cute, Dusty! Also, don't get confused. Dusty had darker fur when she was little, but she was tan underneath! Nope, I don't have two dogs.
The pictures on the top of this page and on my homepage are pictures I took at the Botanic Gardens, and I thought they went well with this theme, so.... yep!
