Your Application for the Academy of Winter Holidays.

Billy Bob Joe,

     Thank you for your interest in our annual program.* As a show of appreciation, you will receive your very own reindeer via airmail within 5 to 6 months for free.**

     You have passed the fifth round of testing, and we look forward to seeing you yet again for the final two tests before you officially earn your position in the Academy of Winter Holidays.*** Here is an outline of the tests you have passed thus far:
  1. Holiday Culture Exam ~ 88% Professor's comments:
    Satisfactory. Continue study on ancient holidays.
    PS, what do you think of Kwanzaa? I think I did a pretty good job with that one.
  2.  Holiday Dinner ~ Chef's comments:
    Good work, lad! I'll be keeping this turkey, if you don't mind.
  3. Jewish tradition training ~ Exceeds Expectations
  4. Decorating 101 ~ 100%. Interior designer's comments:
    Keep it up my dear, I wish I lived in that house you decorated! Your future is bright! 
  5. Caroling ~ 60%. Choir leader's comments:
    It was a little rough around the edges, but I'm sure with practice you will succeed! If you do get accepted we will have to continue extensive training before we send you out on a caroling route.
     Due to obvious reasons, the next topic will only be announced on the day of testing.

     We have also received complaints from several applicants regarding allergy issues. If this applies to you, we send our most sincere apologies.**** Should you feel any further pain, please consult your literary agent for one way boarding passes to the cemetery.
*The Academy of Winter Holidays is a private company and should not be confused with Santa's workshop.

This handy booklet will guide you through the steps of proper reindeer care and you will be a professional in no time. Reply to this email within 2 days and receive a copy signed by Santa! Sales starting at $35.99. Shipping rates apply.
***Please note that we have limited seats. If you wish to withdraw your application, reply to this email immediately. Any last minute changes are prohibited and will result in imprisoning.

     Good Luck! -Miss Eltow

hey doodlebugs

Well, I noticed that our blog is severely lacking in posts so I will contribute :P

I'm not sure what about my super exciting life you would like to hear about, so I will just go ahead and tell you what I've been doing this past week...or what is worth mentioning.

Nummmmmmber one.
buttonholes + buttons = coat soon to be finished
So very excited about that! Then I will finally be able to wear it!

Numero deux!
I'm starting to get better at improv due to the 'basic freeze' games we play at RSA :) ...funny, I hate it in school drama classes...

Number three!
I'm getting 88 in French, 88 in Science, 85 in Socials, and 68 in Math :/
I don't know any of my other marks for term 1, I like them all pretty much. Except math is a little disconcerting but I guess I've never been a math whiz sooooo...

Numero quatre.
I'm going to get my hair cut next next saturday...that's not very important and it hasn't happened yet, so I don't know why I'm bringing it up.
Moving on...

Numero cinq.
Liking the square dancing unit we're doing in PE right now! Hahaha ;)
It's actually kind of fun...but when some guy who is really tall is supposed to "swing" really want to punch them and say "This is on the verge of harassment."

Number six!
I'm finished.
