But I just decided against it. I’m finally catching up on sleep not that my granny isn’t staying with us, but I’m still so tired. Also WordPress and my computer aren’t getting along. But I’ll probably be back on this weekend. We’ll probably be going somewhere with internet, be that the hospital where my grandma is or her house. I don’t know how much longer she has guys, but honestly, I hope her time comes soon. No one deserves this kind of pain.

Sue Ellen had her tongue stuck out slightly with concentration. The entire canvas depended on her making careful brush strokes, which meant ignoring the loud class around her. She was in an art class at Elwood City High, and judging by the daily noise and confusion, most of the kids thought the high school was a zoo instead. Sue Ellen did her best to ignore them, but today, the piece had to be perfect to complete her artistic vision.
Suddenly the canvas leaped off the easel and onto the floor, causing her to paint across the entire painting as it nearly fell into her lap. Sue Ellen cried out in horror as the boy responsible appeared in her field of vision.

Muffy nearly pranced around Lakewood Elementary’s cafeteria as she showed off her winning hat design. She had won a design contest just the evening before, and the entire school now knew exactly who she was and what she’d done. She was only in fourth grade, yet her popularity rivaled every fifth grader in the school, and Muffy didn’t mind one bit. She was thrilled to be so amazing at such a young age, and winning this contest was just one more thing to make her better than everyone else.
Buster was thirteen and itching to be alone. It was that magical time of year, Summer Vacation, when parents tended to leave their children home alone more often. Today was one of those days, and he lay in bed anxiously awaiting that mystical sound: The front door closing.
Buster twitched. The sound was late. He decided to go downstairs, where he found his mother lying on the couch covered in sweat. She was coughing as she looked towards the television, which was on a Spanish soap opera. Buster grimaced: his mother was obviously very sick.

So I really enjoyed my entry about the Tough Customers, which I’m glad you all enjoyed and commented on. Because I loved it so much, I figured I’d do another one, at home, to discuss some other things in the fandom. Today’s entry will discuss some of the pairings, both canon and fandom pairings, to show you all what I think about them. I have quite a few pairings listed and discussed here, but I want you all to weigh in as much as possible. I may even have to break this up actually…. It’s a little long.
- Arthur x Francine
- Arthur x Sue Ellen
- Buster x Fern
- Buster x Kate
- DW x James
- Binky x Molly
- Brain x Sue Ellen
