Father's Day

Wow, we actually made it home after choir practice today! It's a good thing, too, because it gave us time to call Dad. (We're going back to Mom's place later, and we didn't think it would be in good taste to call him from there.) It was nice talking to him.

He wished us a happy Father's Day, too, and then we got into my thing about how just because somebody doesn't celebrate a certain holiday (or isn't the object of the celebration, in cases like Father's Day) doesn't mean that they can't be wished a happy that day. Like, "Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates it! And to everyone who doesn't, well, you can just rot in the hellishness of not celebrating." I'm sure most people who say the first part don't even consider the rest of it, but it could be interpreted that way.

I think I've probably said this more than once before, but I think it would be neat to just randomly wish people, for example, "Happy August 23rd!" Of course, that would have to wait for August 23rd, but you get the idea. Then Dad pointed out that that's essentially what you're doing when you tell people to have a nice day. So maybe we just need to wish people nice days more often.

Dad also let us ramble about World of Color, which was especially nice, because we haven't really been able to do that outside of LJ. We started to when our home teacher came by to make an appointment, but then Sister H asked if we needed a ride home and we jumped at the opportunity.

Anyway, I should probably mention Sleeping Beauty's ending before getting distracted with another character. There's not a whole lot to say about her--her story is almost exactly the same as the Thorn Prince's story, except that he's not in it. Except when you get the Frog Prince to come see her, he's all like, "You don't really like me anyway," and she's like, "Yes I do!" and he's like, "No you don't." And you have to rescue her from the mirror instead of her brother.

So anyway, you beat the demon lord, and then the retainers from her kingdom come and take her away, because since her brother is still asleep they need her to come train to be the queen. So Henrietta goes back to her home village with Ludwig, and six months later, Sleeping Beauty shows up to take her away! Ludwig is not happy about this. He's like, "Can I talk to you outside?" So she goes outside with him, and he's like, "Hey, leave my Henrietta alone! We just had to rebuild our village from scratch, and we only just finished our house!" And Sleeping Beauty is like, "Excuse me, but this is not your ending. I'm going to make Henrietta the perfect woman to marry my brother so we can be sisters forever!" Then she ties him up with some thorns so he can't get in the way, and takes Henrietta off to her castle.

As Ludwig watches them go, he flails wildly to get out of the thorns (most likely trying to say, "No! Stop! Come back!") and Henrietta (who can't see the thorns) is like, "Hey, what's Ludwig waving about?" and Sleeping Beauty is like, "He's just so happy for you!"

Then she takes Henrietta back to the castle, where she has determined to make her an idol and the model for her new fashion line. The end.


Today I'm thankful for getting to call Dad, getting to eat a bunch of the extra cookies that were brought for the Elders' Quorum, getting a ride home after choir practice, finally having sheet music with which to practice a piano solo for Relief Society (like RS Pres has been wanting me to do for months), and Page once again posing adorably on top of the monitor.
