However today was freakin' funny because Jay White came over to our table (he's a senior) and Daniel said something and he goes "Have you ever had a Swirly?" and Hanna goes "Oh, I'd love to see you try, Flexi Testes." Well, we just about died laughing because Jay is a really good dancer and really is flexible; he can apparently put his leg behind his head while still standing. Daniel hiccuped 230 times, I counted ^_^.
Well, all for now. Short entry today! And we have a 4-day weekend so TGIF, w00t for the weekend.
P.S. The powers...they're multiplying! and...Your threes are unsymmetrical! (Hanna, when she was helping me with my algebra hw. Luv ya!)

We went to Magic Elm to go skating. Erik's taken skating lessons, so he was really good. I'm pretty good once I warm up a bit, but he can lift one leg in the air and go backwards and all this other crazee stuff. Hanna and Jackie had never gone skating before, so we had to help them out. Erik helped Hanna and I helped Jackie. I thought it was sad that neither of them had ever skated before. It wasn't their fault, but I was just like "Haven't you ever been to a skating party before?" I was just surprised. Hanna caught on after a couple hours, but Jackie wanted me to help her the whole time. I stayed with her for the first 1 1/2 to 2 hours, because I certainly wasn't going to abandon her when she was just learning, but after a while, I wanted to go off on my own or trade off w/ Erik so he wouldn't be stuck with Hanna the whole time, but she would just be like "Why do you keep abandoning me?" Uhhh...so I can skate a couple of rounds by myself...? Well, whatever, it's okay now. Anyways, we all had a lot of fun and we're going to go once a month so they can both get better and stuff. Anyway, we had pizza and we were laughing at Erik's antics because he's SO gay (heehee, luv ya Erik). But there also a MILLION little kids there, which meant lots of cutting off and falling right in front of you, so you have to do, like, a double axle jump (which Erik could probably pull off) to avoid a huge collision. I felt like picking them up and throwing them across the rink. There! Fall over there, u stupid freeks! So that was fun. Oh, and I saw my neighbor Elise, so yeah...fun and games.
We went to the Antrim, which is this fancy-schmancy 5-star restaurant (www.antrim1844.com) in Taneytown. It's a really beautiful mansion-turned-bed and breakfast. Oh, and a restaurant, but whatever. Anyway, we ate in this little room in the basement or somewhere with only four tables (two were Erk's parents and us, the other two were this older couple and a younger couple, who didn't leave until, like, 1/2 an hour before we did, and the older couple kept throwing us dirty looks. Oh, well. Screw them and us for being teenagers. God. We were practically hysterical the whole night and the food was pretty good. I didn't eat most of the stuff they put on the thing that you actually ordered, but I actually tried frog legs and they were actually pretty good! Also, I had a filet mignon, which was EXCELLENT, and I had to finish Erik's because he couldn't. I have a stomach like a trash compacter (and it shows, lol), so it wasn't hard. Also, Erik's brother Brian came along and he looks almost EXACTLY like Erik, but different (well, no dip, Sherlock). He's Erik's opposite: quiet, well-retained, "emo" (according to Hanna), has no interest in web design, and really quiet. He funny though, so they're the same in that respect. We made a million different toasts when we got our sparkling cider, including to Erik's birthday and South Dakota. I swear, that cider was spiked cuz I felt drunk all night. I kept holding Erik's hand and going "Let's go out". Erik, ur awesome cuz any other guy would've thrown me through the wall and said "God, SHUT UP, YOU FREAK!" So thnx, heh heh ^^. Well, anyway...yeah. So again, it was sooo much fun, and Brian took this HILARIOUS pic of Erik and Jackie, check it out.
[THIS PIC HAS BEEN REMOVED DUE TO COMPLAINTS OF PARENTS]
So, it was really fun all weekend. YAY! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ERIK!!!!
P.S. I raised my Algebra grade *drumroll* 1%! So Now I have a 79% instead of a 78%! W00t! Now, only 1 more percent and I'll have a B! YAGGLES!!

One of the exercises is this really stupid one in which one person lays on the ground and the other person stands above you and drops the ball. Then, Person #1 has to catch the ball and then push it back to Person #2. We had to do 12 of these. It's a matter of survival, really. So Jackie did her turn on the ground, and then I got down. The first three drops were good, but on the fourth one, I must have missed or something (it's rather hard to judge when you should catch an eight pound ball, you know) because the left side of my face became numb and my lip was bleeding. Then, I had to go to the hospital and I'm typing this there, awaiting surgery so that they can put plates in my face.
Actually, all I had to do was put a piece of wet paper towel over my lip and it stopped after 5 minutes. My face stopped hurting after about two. So, yeah. Jackie was apologizing all over the place, but I told her to forget it. It's happened before, it'll happen again, don't worry about it. Besides, it wasn't really her fault and it was dumb, pointless exercise anyways.
So then we started the basketball 'tournament' (Hanna and I are a team, undefeated so far, w00t.) and the ball hit me in the face on the left side again, so I had to recover from that in about 10 seconds. Then I fell diving for the ball and bruised my knee. THEN at lunch, Daniel pretended to be in love with my lunchbox and then he threw it at me and the keychain hit the inside of my lower lip. So needless to say, it was a painful sort of day. Good thing I didn't have my period today. Anyway...
Today was also sad. My friend Melanie Cole's dad died on Monday and I went to his viewing. He had CVIS (Common Viral Immune Deficiency) for 15 years, so at least it wasn't sudden. She seemed okay, but it's always hard losing someone you love, especially your dad, no matter how long you have to 'prepare' for it. He was also a Marine (Go Marines), and from the pictures, a really good dad. Before I left, I saw a bunch of kids from my school there. So, sadness and pain, all in one day. Bleah.
However, it is FRIDAY, so TGIF, W00T for the weekend!!! Please, please, puh-leeeeeeeeeeeeeeze don't snow too much tomorrow. By 'too much', I mean less than 4 inches. Snow all you want after 10:00 on Sunday night so we won't have school, but PLEASE don't snow tomorrow too much. I would say not at all, but I'm willing to compromise and we haven't had any in awhile.
Well, tis all for now. Until...sometime!

OMG, I AM SOOOOOOO EXITED!!!!! Eric's having this two-day party thing for his birthday, so on Saturday we're going skating at Magic Elm and then on Sunday, we're going to the Antrim, which is this 5-star restaurant in Taneytown. I'm gonna wear my 8th grade dance dress. It looks like this:
Great, isn't it? OMG, I look so fat. W0w. LOL
So, yeah...I'm excited.
OMG, I have a freaking C in Algebra ALREADY, and it's only the second week of the semester!! I got a 68% on my Chapter 1 test, so that's why. Well, ya know what? Screw algebra, screw the teachers that teach it, I DON'T CARE. Half the stuff we're learning we're more than likely never to use again, except on the HSA's. Gawd. Give me my damn math credit ad let's move on. God, I sound like Foamy. Oh, well! *grin*.
Well, tis all for now. I report on the parrrrrrrrrrrrtaaaaaaaayyyy!!! Details at 11.

I really like Daniel, except when he steals my yogurt and licks it and THEN says he doesn't like it when I knew he didn't like it in the first place! Oh, well.
Daniel's one of mah bestest guy friends (actually one of mah ONLY guy friends). He's hilarious and it's really funny watching him talk because his eyebrows go up and down and his nostrils flare. He brings out the child in me. Also, he's a really good tenor (eeeeee, tenor!), and he's in mah Chorus II and Gym class. Some of his hobbies include singing, eating my yogurt, and jumping into people's arms. His birthday is December 24 and he just turned 15. He has a twin brother named Martin, but Daniel's cuter and skinnier than Martin.
Daniel was in "The Mouse that Roared" as Soldier #1 and a tree. W00t for the trees, I was one, too!
Well, there's ur mention, Daniel. Show my blog to Funky Monkey now, eh??

Well. Where to start...
Okay. So first mod I have Spanish. It's actually really kool. Mrs. Garcia is so awesome! I've always wanted to learn Spanish, and it's really fun, even if it is at an ungodly hour. It's just hard to keep commands straight. Buenos dias! Me llamo Alejandra. Como te llamas? Me llamo _____. Mucho Gusto, Alejandra. Encantada! Adios. Adios. Actually, that's not a command, but whatever. I have to memorize it by tomorrow for a quiz. Yay!
English is perty kool, too. However, I worry about mah fellow classmates, especially those who can't pronounce 'wounded' (I'm SO taking Honors Global Perspectives next year). W0w... Mrs. Ruston is nice, and she's young (but not TOO young), which is a plus. Old teachers who should have retired during WWII plus teachers who graduated from college, like, 6 months ago I can't stand. We just finished reading "The Most Dangerous Game", which was actually pretty good. And I can't wait to do The Oddessy and Romeo and Juliet! YAYAYAYAYA!! Anyway...
Chorus II as usual, except Starky isn't in it anymore for some reason, and Matt Wolfe moved up to Honors Chorus. Lucky. He plays the guitar really good. He and this other dude actually wrote this all-guitar (maybe it had voices, I don't remember) song, and it was really good. Oh, and we got this new sophomore, Brittney. She's okay, I guess. The only thing is, she and Josh are dating and they've only known each other THREE DAYS!! JEEZ!!!!!! Plus, we started doing stuff in gym, fitness tests. I'm happy to say that I got 1:18 on the shuttle run, 0/25 push ups, 31/55 military crunches, .97 on the bar hang, and 25 cm on the sit and reach. So I failed miserably. YAY!!! But tomorrow, we start basketball, so YAYA!!
Yay, the hell of the day (ooh, a rhyme!). God, I hate Algebra just as much as I thought I would. I swear, mark mah words, I will NEVER use any of these stupid concepts as long as I live! I will pay someone to tell me when I will ever need to know what (9-7)+75/5 -12 is, and DON'T tell me when building a bridge or launching a rocket because that is not high on my list of things to do before I die. So in short, algebra is completely pointless and irrelavent to mah life. And the teacher...OMG, THE TEACHER NEEDS TO FREAKING RETIRE!!!!! I coundn't do my homework on Tuesday because for some reason, I owed the media center a dollar and the skool has this retarded policy that if you have an obligation, you can't take any textbooks home or check any books from the media center, or pass go or take $200...just kidding. But it's SO stupid, and when I went to pay it off, it turns out that I didn't owe just a dollar, I owed a plus 20 cents on the same book AND an additional 30 cents on ANOTHER book!! Y'know, it would be just peachy if the media center could 1.) let you know when you have an obligation, not a month later, and 2.) tell you the right amount in the first place, not tell you a dollar and then go "Oh, just kidding! It's actually a dollar forty!" So I couldn't do mah hw and I had to do it Wednesday on top of the hw I had THAT DAY, and choir practices AND a read-through of the musical. Sheesh. So...yeah.
Oh, and to rub salt into the wound (that's pronounced WOOND, not wanded, idiots. But I digress), BRANDON ISN'T IN ANY OF MY CLASSES!!!!!!!!! WAAAAAAAAAAHH!!! I prayed and prayed that he would be in at least one of mah classes, but noooooo. However, I have discoverd his lair (aka first mod), and he has to suffer through physics, haha, I have no pity because I ALREADY HAD IT, HA HAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! Plus, he has Mr. Ballard and I heard he's kinda annoying. So HA HA AGAIN!! I peeked in and saw Josh and I wondered who else had that class, and I saw Brandon, and I was all "Scoooooore!!!" So Jackie and Sandman were stuck talking to Josh and I talked to Brandon. At first he was kinda like "Uhhh...what are you doing here?/OMG, how the heck did you find me?? Noooooooo!!" So we talked about how sad we were because we weren't in Government anymore (actually I was really sad, he was "sad") and who is going to copy off of now and him saying that he only did that once and me saying liar, and...yeah. So, excitement abounds.
Well, tis all I have to say for now.
P.S. According to Hanna, Brandon is dating Jackie, but he made out with Gwen and is selling himself on corners to men; he lives in a tree with his pet pink bunny named Floo-Floo and watches Gilmore Girls. OMG, don't ask...joke.
P.P.S. Finally, Geometry is fun! You get a thrill from expanding your knowledge and being able to prove others that you are right with the new information that you have learned. (Hanna's geometry paper, poor soul.)
