I have returned.
I don't remember if I told you why I was gone for three weeks, but I was working at a summer camp. In the kitchen.
I will be doing more posts about my experiences when I get my brain back (I'm not really sure where it is right now) and my thoughts are sorted out (I have no idea when that will be).
Nothing terribly interesting happened.
Unless you call cutting lots of red jello interesting.
Or getting purple ink on my face and it not coming off for a long time.
Or knowing how it feels to look at a sky-high mountain of dirty pots and pans and knowing you will be the conqueror.
Or watching part of the Summer Olympics for the first time in my life (I saw women's water polo and women's volleyball. Water polo players have rather frightful muscles, by the way.)
Or stacking millions of slices of rubbery cheese.
Or belting Newsies songs while stuffing endless forks into plastic brown holders.
Or painting my toenails lime green.
Or bunkhouses that smell like barns.
Or little kid faces that are positively glowing because their moms aren't there to make them eat salad and they can have all the tater tots they want.
Or shades of dirty dishwater in every color of the rainbow (well, not quite but my favorite was a brilliant pink color from red jello pans).
Or watching Monsters, Inc for the first time in a long time and being called Celia-Welia afterwards.
Or hot sauce on a brownie (more on that later).
Oh, and someone told me that the color of my eyes reminded them of a hawk. I wasn't quite sure how to take that. Should I take it as a compliment?
Tonight, we are watching Captain America. Even though I haven't seen it yet, I'm almost positive that he will be my new favorite super hero (displacing Batman). I will tell you my thoughts on it.
Who is your favorite superhero? What makes them more awesome than all the others?
