So, I know I haven't been around lately. Life, and priorities ended up taking precedence over Summer Ninja Fun. Truthfully, we all kind of forgot about our summer project for a while. RL and whatnot really makes summer less fun. But with any luck, we'll be able to take this weekend to regroup and get back on track. Cross your fingers for us and Ninja Barbie! She's been lonely without us. :(

So I finally got all the photos uploaded. I think. My browser crashed on me when I was ading all the titles in, but the photos themselves should be up at Summer Ninja Photobucket.

And, as promised, here is the list for our luau CD )

ETA: HTML fail fixed. The photobucket link works now. ^_^

Ninjas MIA

Ok, I know I haven't been around for a while. Last week, Trevor's sister had to go to the emergency room. She has some medical problems, so it's kinda something we're used to. She'll be fine, but they kept her in the hospital for a few nights. Trevor's parents were out of town at the time, so we spent a lot of time over there with her. She's 15.

The Ninjas and I went out that afternoon to a playground to do Summer Ninja stuff. I went home with Trevor to watch some tv and have dinner. Almost as soon as we got home Cynthia said she wasn't feeling well. Having experience with her medical problems, and especially since their parants weren't there, we drove streight to the ER.

They saw us right away but it was about 2 hours before she got a bed in the ER, and they didn't tell us they where going to admit her until almost morning. They gace Cynthia something and she slept through most of the night except when the nurses came for tests or blood or drugs.

Trevor and I, on the other hand, where sitting in tiny, hard chairs, and did I mention it was freezing in there? Yeah, it was pretty aweful. Around 4:30 in the morning, they'd brought Cynthia up to a room and she was asleep, so Trevor and I went outside to try to defrost. Of course, it was exactly the temperature outside as in, so that was helpful.

Luckily we found a blanket in the car so we sat on the wall huddled together and watched the sunrise. It was actually really nice. And I still had Ninja Barbie in my bag so she watched it with us.

Trevor'd called his parents but they wouldn't be able to get home till the next night. So we spent the morning in the hospital too. Trevor's other sister got there around 11 so we went to lunch. The hospital cafe had been closed all night for some reason, which royaly sucked because it's usually not, so this was the first time we'd gotten to eat since lunch the day before.

Anyway, this was Friday. Their parents got back late Saturday night, and Cynthia was released from the hospital on Tuesday morning. We decided to count the overnight hospital stay as "stay out all night" cause even though that's not what we had in mind, we had Ninja Barbie at the time so technically...

And I promise, I will post those pictures and playlist eventually. >.

Ok, so I realize that I stull haven't posted those pictures, we've been so buys this week I haven't had any time to go online. Unfortunately, not much of it has been Summer Ninja stuff. The luau party was on Sunday. Everyone loved the mix CD, which was awesome. Someone here asked what ended up making the cut. I'll post a list of the songs in case anyone else is curious. I did my best to make it PG cause we knew there would be little kids around.

We spent most of Sunday helping our friend, Terra set up for her party, which was awesome. We did play beach volley ball, and of course Ninja Barbie came to the party with us, so that's one thing off the list.

Monday and Tuesday where mostly taken up by work and other boring things that need not be discused. But on Tuesday night, Trevor and I did go to the bookstore. There's this awesome used bookstore in town, it has a little caffe that's super awesomely priced, and has all the ambiance in the world. We bought a couple of video games and spend all next morning playing them.

We took Ninja Barbie with us, even though it wasn't on the summer list. The drive over was probably the best. There's really nothing like cruising down the freeway as the sun is setting with the wind blowing in your hair and the radio turned up.

So I'll get all the pictures uploaded and posted to Photobucket later today, as well as a song list for the luau CD. ^_^

Mix CD

I was really tired last night, so I forgot to mention, but we got to check something else off of our list, Summer Mix CD. One of our friends is having a luau party, and so we offered to burn her the music for it. I'll post pictures of Ninja Barbie with the CD to the Summer Ninja Photobucket when I get home.

Time totally got away from me this week, sorry about the lack of posting.

Monday was my birthday. Now, Zoe told me she was throwing me a surprise birthday party. We've tried actually having surprise parties before, it's never worked. It's not that someone blabs, we just seem to know each other to well.

So I received very specific instructions to dress up in my fanciest outfit and a hat, she was very adamant about the hat, and head over to her house. This is what awaited me:

Photobucket

We ended up being able to cross off Birthday Party and Tea Party off the list in one night! Everyone had a toy with their place setting. I got Ninja Barbie, since I was the birthday girl. ^_^ Trevor, as you can probably guess, was the Power Ranger. Though I'm kinda surprised Zoe didn't give him a pink baby doll or something. I wouldn't put it past her. XD Zoe was the yellow bunny, Magenta had the brown teddy bear, and the purple teddy was reserved for Emily, my little sister. Yeah, I love the kid, what can you do? She's 12, for the record.

The tea... was kinda awful. I like tea, but that was... XD It was really bitter, and putting lemon in it just made it worse. We finished it anyway. :P But the real fun came with the birthday cupcakes. -Coughs- Zoe left Trevor in charge of the cupcakes. Now, Trevor, AKA Boyfriend, is good at many, many things. Cooking, is most definitely not one of them. Yeah... Well in Zoe's defense, she thought he was going to buy them. They where edible. A bit singed around the edges, and more than a little dry, but edible.

Then, while we where gooding around, Trevor and I realized that Red Ranger and Ninja Barbie are astonishingly close to the same size! So they decided to have a dance. And of course, after that Trevor and I had to dance. XD The song was U & Ur Hand by Pink. The really funny part was that Trevor was the one singing along to it. XD

More pics )

Yeah, this totally makes the top 3 birthdays ever list.

Ok, so yesterday was awesome. :D

The four of us went garage sale shopping, crossing off one thing on our list. At the first sale we went to, we hit the jackpot. A huge box of barbie stuff! :D Ok, you're looking at me funny, I know. That's pretty much how Trevor looked at Zoe when she squeed upon seeing it and started digging through the stuff.

But, as always, Zoe is brilliant. And after about 20 minutes, we'd found a Barbie, and put together the perfect outfit for her. And so was born our mascot, Ninja Barbie!

Ninja Barbie

The guy who was selling the stuff thought we where nuts. Though he was probably right. XD

Later that evening, we went over to the amphitheater for the first concert in the summer concert series they hold ever year. Classic rock. The concert was awesome, the band was great, we got free otter pops, but besides the little kids dancing down in front, I swear we had to be the youngest people there. What has the world come to when teenagers don't want to listen to a free classic rock concert?

We had more plans for the night, but exhaustion got the better of us. Guess we'll save it for another night!

Now, I promised a Summer Scrapbook, and here it is! Photobucket! Since, as ninjas, we have to keep our identities secret, we will be posting pictures of our newest ninja, and mascot, Ninja Barbie! Didn't I tell you Zoe was a genius? We're taking turns carrying her around with us on our adventures. And we are fully prepared to mock Trevor when it's his turn.

Also, for easy reference, and for those of you who may not have seen it, here is The List. It's all the stuff we're planning on doing this summer, and as we finish, we'll cross it of to keep track. It's gonna be posted at the top of my journal for the rest of the summer.

Ok, so so far we've been having Not Much in the Luck Department of The Summer List. But! I have plans for my birthday party!

We've also been planning some very clever Summer!Ninja plans. All shall be revealed shortly. Zoe just needs to put a couple things together. The current plan however, is to spend this weekend catching up on the list. My birthday party, "a small, but highly dramatic affair," as Zoe describes it, will be held at a date to be disclosed. Yes, I get told about my surprise birthday party. I love my friends. ♥

If everything goes according to plan, much posting will follow this weekend, as well as the start of the Ninja Summer Scrapbook!

There’s a Country Time Lemonade commercial that starts out, “Summer’s going to be a short 91 days this year.” Well I for one plan to take full advantage of those days. So this year, to make the most of it, my friends, the other Ninjas, and I, have created a list of the top 100 best summer activities of all time. And we intend to do all of them between Memorial Day, and Labor Day. That is our goal. :D

And preferably to not die trying.

First thing's first, I should introduce us.

My username.

This username, [personal profile] secretidalias, is my alias. Because it is necessary for us Ninjas need to hide our identity, even from the web! It’s very creative, no? Yeah, I know, no. But "Summer Ninja" was taken on at least one of the sites I wanted to register on so I had to become one with my inner dork! (Trust me, it's not that hard.)

Though I suppose [personal profile] secretidalias is a lot to type every time, so you can call my Sylvia. Whether or not that’s my real name... -Mad cackle-

As for the other Ninjas, there’s Zoe, Trevor, and Magenta.

Trevor's the BF of 8 months now. ^_^ We've been friends since before high school though. Zoe and I have known each other since second grade, not counting the three years we spent apart when her folks decided to move to another state. Luckily, they eventually came to their senses and moved back. Magenta's the newest Ninja, and the youngest. She's Eleanor's sister, but when Eleanor went off to college last year, tragedy, she dubbed Magenta as an official Ninja.

Now, none of us actually know Magenta's real name, she swore Eleanor to secrecy before we met her. But we suspect it's something really lame or girly. Their parents aren't the hippy type, though we haven't ruled out something like "Sunshine." If you knew her, you'd know she's a total tomboy and almost a goth.

So, this summer, the four of us have decided to take on the task of completing everything on this list, making the next 91 days the perfect summer!

So without further ado, The List )
