Hi, everyone! I wanted to say thanks to everyone who helped me out last time I was on here. Anyway, uh...
[She pauses awkwardly and stares pointedly at the screen.]
Sheba, if you're watching this, go do something else right now, OK? I'll explain later. Just don't watch the rest of this video!
[She waits about twenty seconds or so before smiling brightly.]
So, I still don't know exactly how the dates here translate to the dates on Weyard, but the weather is about right. Three days from now, when the dates on the terminal say "12," I want to have a party to celebrate Sheba's sixteenth birthday. We didn't really get to have one for her fifteenth because we were in the middle of some stuff back on our world when it happened, so I want to make up for that.
You're welcome to come as long as you know her even a little! And you don't have to bring anything either, I know it's kinda short notice. I've been reading a book about something called photography in the library and I think I'm going to try and find a camera so I can give her a collection of pictures of everyone who shows up, so just being there would be a really good gift.
For now I'm thinking it'll be at the meadow with the flowers and the nice weather, but if anyone has any better ideas, I'm all ears. If you could let me know if you plan to come, that would be awesome! I'm going to be cooking and I want to try and make enough food for everyone. But, uh... [And now she looks a little sheepish.] Same as last time. I've gotten better at making cakes and stuff, but I'd really appreciate the help if it looks like I might be getting in over my head.
Be sure to keep this a secret! [She brings a finger to her lips in a universal "Shhh!" gesture.] It can be really hard to surprise her because she's good at finding things out, but I don't think she's ever had a surprise party before, so I really want to make this work. ...and it'll be good to have something nice and normal before that Ruana lady starts messing with us, right?
Thanks a lot!
