I am excited about Christmas! I have been sick for almost a week. Part of the time I faked it, but now I’m not faking.

Last night, Diana, Kevin, James and me all slept outside in the backyard. Our t.v. is broken. Well, not really broken but you can’t turn it up or change the channel unless you have pliers.

Our house is a one story house with four bedrooms. James, Kevin and Diana share one room. They have a bunk bed and James sleeps on a bed made of two filing cabinets and a mattress. It is very comfy. Mom and Dad have a King and Queen bed. Dad has a desk piled with junk up to the ceiling. They have their own bathroom but we kids all have to share a bathroom and you can hardly ever get in there because someone is always pooping in it.

I have a crush on this boy named Michael.
Disposition: good; cheery!!!
Is nice to me: yes!!!
Love him: yes!!!!!!!!!!
Uh huh!!! Wowie!!! He’s my kind of guy!!!!!
Mike + Susan forever!!!!!!!
For the rest of my diary I will write in piglatin. At-hay y-may irthday-Bay y-May est-bay eind-fray ista-Kray old-tay e-may at-thay e-shay ad-hay a-hay ew-nay est-bay eind-fray, ethany-Bay. Ista-Kray and-hay Ethany-Bay ink-stay!!!!!
I have decided not to write in pig latin.
There is a cute boy in my class named Charles. He has never had anything lower than an A-!!!! He has curly hair and I look at it a lot because I sit behind him. His head is sorta pinkish.
Charles is always on my mind. Now that I think back on it, Michael was really ugly. That was just a 5th grade crush. This is one sided LOVE!!!!!!!
I might use part of this diary for poems. I could, for example, instead of an entry, write a poem when I feel like it. Isn’t Adrienne a pretty name? I think so! Love, Susan (or Adrienne)

I am having a problem with honesty. Not really serious problems but still I’d rather not have them. My mom has been calling me Pinnokeo. Sometimes I say things and then I wonder why did I say that? I don't have a pony and that's when they say "You don't have a pony I been to your house before." I am going to try and remember this saying; “Whosoever hath honor hath the greatest treasure of all.” Also I will listen to the standing tall honesty tape a lot and sing the songs.
