The Beach

Two reason I LOVE summer: Long days at the beach and sleeping until 1 p.m. or later. During school I always feel so sleep deprived, but after only two days I feel better than I have in a long time.

Today was my third day of advance surfing lessons. Dad wanted me and mom to train so we could ride waves with him in Hawaii, which is where we’re spending Christmas. Our instructor, Brody, could be a cover of ‘GQ.’ The dude is hot. He just graduated from my school and he’s going to Pepperdine in the fall. Right now he’s working at one of my Uncle Craig’s surf shops. He used to date my cousin Elizabeth, so we hung out a few times last summer. But she dumped him for Raj, super dumb move if you ask me. Brody is so much cuter, but Raj treats her like a princess and buys her crap all the time. I don’t want to call her shallow, but…

Any way, I was shocked when he asked if I wanted to go to dinner with him. He asked me in front of my mom. He told her, that he knew he was a little old for me, but he liked spending time with me. Like a million butterflies took flight in my stomach. Mom said I could go if I wanted, but she gave me a curfew. I was like, sure, all casual and everything. But inside I was about to die. Later she told me if I ever felt uncomfortable to call her and she would come pick me up. As if.

When Marnie and Sara found out about Brody they freaked. I don’t know a girl in school who wouldn’t sell her soul to go out with him. Marnie accused me of doing some kind of love spell to get guys to like me. I have to admit, I have been on kind of a lucky streak. They’re calling me the Love Witch, so I changed the title of the blog to The Witches Diaries, plural, because I’ll be telling their stories too. And if I’m a witch 😉 Well, my friends must be too.

Now I have to conjure up something to wear. Ack!


Party Update

I’m a terrible, awful person, but, um, so happy right now. So the party was so packed we moved everything out to the pool and beach. I didn’t know about half of the people who were there. But it was so much fun! Wild, but fun. It was like everyone was feeling this sense of freedom and we all just let go. I’m pretty sure Jordan and his gang were wasted before they ever arrived. They were trying to surf in the dark. Idiots. I really don’t see why Sara likes him so much. He’s such a douche to her. Seriously. I wanted to punch him in the face when he kissed skanky Carly right in front of her. He told Sara that he didn’t mind being in a relationship during school, but in the summer he liked his freedom. She can do so much better.

Marnie was the dancing Queen. She had everyone on the beach dancing, and it didn’t hurt that my dad hired the best band ever. They’re doing some of the music for his new movie. Oh, yeah, and then there was him. Boardshorts, bare feet and a retro t-shirt. The guy does crazy things to my heart. And he was so sweet and friendly. The whole cast was. They talked to everyone.

But back to me being a VERY bad girl. So I was in the kitchen asking the caterers to restock the ice out by the pool and he walked in. He said he was looking for my dad’s office. That Dad had recommended he read a certain book for research. I was more than happy to be his tour guide and I helped him search for the book. After we found it, he just kind of stood there and looked at me. He told me that he’d never seen anyone as beautiful as me. That he knew it was wrong but every time he saw me he wanted to kiss me. Right after my heart returned from my toes to my chest, I felt very brave. I told him, he should do it. That I wasn’t going to tell anyone. He watched me for a long time, but he didn’t move. So then I walked up to him and wrapped my arms around his neck and kissed him. He was kind of hesitant at first, but man, that dude can kiss. Someone dropped something in the kitchen and he jumped away from me. He said, “sorry.” And then he almost ran out of there.

By the time I made it back to the beach he and the other actors were gone. But you know what? I got my kiss. I sort of lied about not telling anyone. When I told Marnie and Sara they freaked out in a good way. They called me a manipulative ho, but they were both so jealous. 🙂 They’re crashed in my bed right now, which means I either get my butt up and head downstairs to one of the guestrooms or I crash on the couch. I’m voting for the couch.

Party Time

I can’t believe it’s the last day of school. My ‘rents are throwing a big party tonight at the house with all my friends. Kind of a hello to summer thing. BFF’s Marnie and Sara were in charge of invites so I have no idea who is going to be here. My dad invited some of the cast members from his latest film so they can get a “feel” for how high school kids really act. I would be mortified, but the cast from the movie is stellar hot. My friends will be excited, and I’ll get to see him again. I swear no one has ever looked at me the way he does. He’s five years older and I should be skivved, but did I mention he’s hot? Dad says he has that “it” thing people are always talking about in Hollywood. My goal tonight is to kiss him. I’ve decided that will begin what is looking to be my perfect summer in the best way evah!
