Hello everyone, it's me again, Emily, this time I am bobbing in the Atlantic Ocean at Cape Coddy and I am having a wonderful time sneaking out at night to play with my friend Gregory Squirrel and splashing at the beach with my friends Muck, Truck, and their cousin F--- Duck, which kj tells me cannot really be anyone's name but I heard F--- Duck being called F--- and that is what I call him so I think kj is just a prude about the word and that's not F---'s problem so I just pretend I like the name and why would anyone even care?
Anyway, I am relaxed and even kj is relaxed. She is writing her story with her computer on a red couch that is very comfortable and when she is writing you really can't even talk to her because she looks like she's in a trance and she pretends she doesn't hear a word I say, which maybe is true but if I really need the attention I will just whine first just a little but if I have to I will get louder and recently I've learned how to throw frozen peas, one at a time, at a window or somewhere that you can hear the bing! when it hits and that has helped me get attention very fast. It turns out throwing frozen peas at something is also good to do if you are worried or nervous, so I recommend that you try it sometime.
Once out of desperation I had to throw frozen artichoke hearts because they were bigger and made more noise, but for the most part I'm happy with the peas. kj doesn't like it but I just told her "peas on earth" and she smiled even though she didn't want to. kj has a good sense of humor some of the time even though she tries to be serious and even though she cries when her feelings get hurt, which I am trying to help her not care and instead either forget about it or threaten to punch anyone mean in the nose.
Anyway I am in Cape Coddy with my purple poka dot bathing suit and I am having a very good time and I have even made some new friends:
These are pictures of my friends Fernando Fish, Camilla Crab, and Benjamin Birdie. Usually I meet them while kj is writing or shopping or eating or talking non stop with jb and her own friends. I do different things with different friends and I thought today I would tell you how to be nice but also how to get good things from friends.
First of all kj is not a good example. Last year she got in fights with someone she loved because kj wanted to see her more often than her friend wanted to see her. Isn't that ridiculous: why would kj want to see someone who didn't want to see her? She knows this now most of the time but it took her three years to figure it out and sometimes she is still sad but I tell her when she gets upset that she should draw pictures with silly or mean faces and she will feel better but instead she prefers ride it out and "love anyway." That's what she says. I think that is very stupid but of course she does not listen to me so it's not my fault when she looks stunned, which she does sometimes when she is sad.
Anyway, that is not my point. My point is that I get different things from different friends and I think you should be able to see why. For example, I can play in the water with Fernando Fish and Camilla Crab but I have to make an adjustment for Benjamin Birdie, who I met through my friend Gregory Squirrel and who likes to spend most of his time in trees, which I do with him only because he gives me free candy he finds in people's yards. And Fernando Fish and Camilla Crab cannot go anywhere near trees, and they do not roll down hills either.
That is what I mean by different friends: you have to accept them as they are and then you and they can figure out the rest together. That is my advice for today and I think it will help you sometime to listen to me. Just don't forget to cry loud too when all else fails.
I am not saying anything about Blogland Lane this week. But maybe I will next week.
P. S. Hello Harry Hare and Mr Snowbrush my mother says absolutely I cannot live with you and kj says to remind everyone to pray for Renee and her family.
