Happy New Years (eve) everyone! Padmae has invited the jeddi council over for a party. I'm looking forward to this. I just hope nothing happens like the last time we had the Jeddi council over for a party... Our carpet doesn't really need another punch bath, Master Siri...

Life goes on as normal. Luke had a party with all his space academy friends last night. They had fun and I would have gone to bed if they hadn't been playing the Metal Hits of 2009 all night. Grr and bleah...
Well, I won't be able to write a post after Thursday because we are going over to my brother Owen's house to celebrate Christmas. (I will bring my practical jokes for Mark's benefit!) It's that time of year!

I'm sorry I haven't written a post in 3 days! I have been racking my brains to try to figure out what to get Master Yoduh for our Christmas gift exchange. On Friday, we all wrote our names on pieces of paper and threw them into a hat. Master Wendu did the honors and pulled out a name and gave it to each person. If someone got his own name, he was supposed to mention it and Master Wendu would put all the names in the hat again and hand them out again. Nobody complained so we can assume that either they all got someone else's name, or they knew just what to give themselves.
At any rate, I got Master Yoduh. We aren't supposed to tell anybody who we got. So I'm stuck! I have no idea what to get him. A hearing aid might be a good idea! But then, I might get in trouble...

I am, however, very happy! I managed to get out of the rest of chores. Crunchy is done with the first week. He finished yesterday. And I still hadn't figured out a way to avoid my second week...or third or fourth weeks. But, as I was about to get out my duster and vacuum, I came up with a brilliant plan. As Luke is home from the Space Academy for the Holidays (and being completely unhelpful), I figured I could use him. Do you readers remember how, back in September last year I bought Luke a video game for his birthday? Well, as of yet, I have let him use my xbox for playing it. He is still addicted to the game, so I banned him from my xbox...unless he did my chores for the rest of the month. His face fell when I told him this and I thought he would call my bluff and not do it. But he gave in and signed a contract. Addiction never fails! He did, however, say, "I'll only sign up for one week. We can talk about the weeks after that."
So he signed it. Unfortunately, though, Padmae found out about it and told me off for being such a self-centered father. She couldn't make me do the chores for this week, though, because Luke signed up for them. I felt kinda bad too, so I offered to take them from Luke. But he has accepted this martyr attitude. He said that he signed it, so he HAS to do the chores. Well, that's his choice! On my part, I now only have two more weeks of chores!

I did, however, buy two things for myself. I know, I know! I'm breaking that age old rule not to buy anything near to Christmas. But the sales on stereos were so good... I couldn't help myself! I needed to buy a new one anyway because Fuzzy destroyed our old one over the weekend. He, for some reason, still thinks that it is a square, fur-less cat! I hold to the strong conviction that poodles are the dumbest dogs ever!
The second thing I bought for myself was a new Jeddi robe. I must be getting slow in my old age. Or maybe that lady was just faster than I was... At any rate, you now know why I needed a new suit! She ran me over.

Anyway, I finally had enough of Fuzzy getting in my way, so I came up with a plan that is "humane" yet effective in getting annoying pets out of the room. And I put it into effect yesterday. What I did was go on the web and find a realistic sound effect of an angry cat. I put it onto an audio cd and brought the stereo into our bedroom. When I started working on the ceiling, sure enough, Fuzzy came in to do his daily jog. I used my force powers to push play on the stereo while not moving a muscle. Fuzzy, as usual started getting in my way when suddenly, an obviously humongous cat hissed and growled. (I had accidentally left the stereo on the highest volume because last night I had been listening to our Jammin' Jeddi song) Fuzzy, stopped jogging, looked around, and immediately ran out of the room faster than I have ever been able to run...even with my force powers. The dumb dog thought it was actually a real cat! (Don't tell Padmae what I called her favorite pet...) As of yet, he hasn't done any jogging in our bedroom. I do hear some soft padding in the next room over, though. So I think I can safely assume he is done bothering me, for now!

Crunchy and I have made a deal about the hole he made in our bedroom ceiling. As he is a handyman, I was going to hire him to repair it, but Padmae had other ideas... After that hole, she wants him to leave asap! So, I used my large mental resources and came up with an awesome plan! I asked Padmae if she would hire me to repair the ceiling. I'm pretty good at that! And yes, she JUMPED at the chance! So, I'm using the money that I will earn from this job and transferring it to the hands of Crunchy. Now wait. Before you deem me extraordinarily generous, let me finish! I am hiring Crunchy, with this money, to finish my chores this week! After that, I will only have THREE weeks of chores to do. And it would be awesome if I could worm my way out of those too!
