Mom + I are still in Florida, but we're not at Aunt Martha's anymore. Uncle John got us an apartment for us for half price for a week because he's a member of the HIA (Hospitality Industry Association). Tommorrow we're going to Tiki Gradens, which is just down the street (literally). I've been there innummerable times but it's still fun. We're going to Disneyworld on Sunday, too. And we might possibly go to EPCOT Center on Wednesday.
This apartment is really neat. It is on two levels, and the 2 bedrooms + two of the bathrooms are on top. My bedroom is facing the front, with 2 twin beds + a dresser + a clock-radio. I found a great station, Magic 96. They play all the extra-long versions of everything. Right now is Tears For Fears, "Shout." It just changed to Eurythemics, "Would I Lie To You?" This one is better in short form. It's more powerful that way. Stretched out is yuck!

The Live Aid concert was yesterday. Live Aid was a concert, well two really, one at JFK Stadium in Philedelphia and one at Wembley Stadium in London. Oh, how I wish I've been at home or Aunt Martha's so I could've seen it all on MTV! Anyway, most of the Band-Aid + USA for Africa stars played there. (also quite a lot who weren't) Both the American + British concerts lasted all day. I saw parts of both on the Dick Clark ABC special. The finale in Britain was "Do They Know It's Christmas?" and here was "We Are The World." All the stars sang on the finale at the concert they performed at. On the special we saw: Madonna, Phil Collins, The Who, Patti LaBelle, Duran Duran, Hall + Oates, Ashford + Simpson with Teddy Pendergrass, Paul McCartney, + both finales.
Mom made me go to Tiki Gardens yesterday afternoon. I bought: one yellow straw coaster, 1 grape candy stick, 1 lemon, 1 cherry + 1 raspberry one. Also I bought a ring with 4 magenta stones it it. I bought a pair of purple earrings. They're dangly, which is my favorite kind.

Today is going to be and already is boring. And I mean BORING! It looks like its about to storm, so we can't go to the beach or the pool, we've gone to both Tarpon Springs + Tiki Gardens, and it's already 11:30, so its too late to start for EPCOT or Disney World, and I've read every single book I brought at least twice. I guess I'll have to do needlework for a while.

Mom + Aunt Martha went to an art gallery, so I'm here by myself. I've done all the needlework I have to do, so I'm bored. Danke Gott, only one more day to endure here, then we're off for 3 days at Disney World + EPCOT Center.
