Diary of a Teenaged Girl

May 22nd

Yesterday Connie and Molly took me to the Bellwood Amusement Park. Well, actually, her parents took me.

It was fun, but the place is very strange.

100 years ago Bellwood was a mental asylum. Then it was abandoned for years. Everyone knows it’s haunted. But a couple of years ago, a wealthy family bought it and turned it into an amusement park.

They added a bunch of rides. Some are refurbished and most look like they are from the turn of the century. I loved it for that reason!

But, they took the asylum itself and made it the main attraction.. as a haunted house!

I haven’t been in there yet, but Molly was all about it.

People say it is still haunted by the ghosts of patients and doctors. I didn’t see anything… but I was too afraid to look. I wouldn’t even go on the asylum ride. I just couldn’t deal with ghosts, poltergeists or shadows. Too creepy for me!

They have a bunch of other great rides and the “old time” feel was great! We had a blast!

(Plus, the kettle corn was really good.)

What does the fox say?


We’re probably the last people on earth to see this video, but if you haven’t… you must.

And our 6-year-old daughter knows all too well what the fox says.

Me? I’m waiting for a “What Does the Fox Say?” themed See ‘N Say.

Walt Disney’s ‘Frozen’ Poster


It’s like Tangled. On ice.

No, seriously — I’m really looking forward to Disney’s retelling of The Snow Queen. Disney’s been knocking it out of the park lately, with their CG animated features rivalling (if not surpassing) Pixar’s latest offerings.

From the press release…

Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind “Tangled” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” presents “Frozen,” a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.

The film is directed by Chris Buck (“Tarzan,” “Surf’s Up”) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, “Wreck-It Ralph”), and produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Winnie the Pooh,” “The Princess and the Frog”). Featuring music from Tony® winner Robert Lopez (“The Book of Mormon,” “Avenue Q”) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (“In Transit”), “Frozen” is in theaters in 3D on November 27, 2013.

In “Frozen,” fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) teams up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad)in a race to find Anna’s sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter.

My birthday was great!

Mom and I went to dinner, and then she took me to the mall. I got to do a mini-makeover! They did my hair and makeup. And then took me to get some new clothes. It was great!

Afterwards, we went to my Grandparent’s house. Grandpa looked really good! Michael was being nice to me. (I wonder if Grandma bribed him?)

Dad came over and we had cake. He brought me roses. It was so sweet! Tomorrow I’m going to go out with Connie and Molly. They won’t tell me where we are going.

Of course my birthday wish was for Chris to notice me. Here’s hoping!
