All right, all right.  Before I get bombarded with “How could you?” comments (not that anyone actually reads this), let me start by saying that…

Eh, I don’t know where to start.

Hm…Perhaps a Show-and-Tell episode would be more appropriate.  *changes title*

Whoa!

What?

I was literally just brushing my teeth.

So?

So, you just zapped me out of my bathroom so I can do some unscheduled work.  What if I were tending to some other business?

Nothing is ever scheduled here.  And what are you talking about “zapped out”?

I’m going to simplify this for you as much as I can.  Basically, I was at home, doing my own thing because I knew I didn’t have to work today.  Your sudden change of mind literally pulled me out of my home so that I can serve Your Highness immediately.

How is that possible?

I don’t know. Something about neurons and dendrites.  It’s all in the Barron’s AP Bio book you were studying a couple of weeks ago.

Ok…

Well, now that I’m here.  What the heck do you want to—

Is that a f****** cat?  A f****** dead cat?

Yea.

What the f***?

OK, first, I want to say that it was either this picture or a picture of my lunch from a barbecue the school hosts every year.

Then why the f*** did you use the picture of this cat?

Well, this is something new.  And because I always post pictures of food!

Choosing not to post pictures of food don’t make you any skinnier!

*stare*

So, tell the audience why the f*** you’re showing them a dead cat.

Because it’s part of my Biology class.  We needed to start dissecting a cat and study its body.

F****** bio.  Of course.

Can you stop cursing?

*stare*  How can I stop, you murderer?  Weren’t you just at a Veggie Pride Parade?  Didn’t they advocate for animal rights?

You got me.  I’m a terrible person.

What will your friend Stef—Wait, what?

I’m a bad person.  I don’t deserve to live.

That’s right.

See you all next time.

This is my tux.  It took me less than half an hour to find it.

Prom next week.  May 28th.

Little did I know that I’d be back in NYC so soon after yesterday.

“I want hot cocoa,” Joe said.

So, we went to Times Square.

Did we get hot cocoa?  No.

For the last two years, I participated in the AIDS Walk at Central Park, but this year, my friend Stefany, a vegan who came with me last year, said that she was going to the Veggie Pride Parade in NYC today instead.   So I figured, I might as well try this one this year.

I drove Tram, Michael, and myself to the parade and had some trouble with parking.  We were late, so we missed the actual parade, and we just met up with Stefany, her sister Cindy, and Andre in Union Square where the parade ended.  Practically everyone was advocating for animal rights and stuff.  I couldn’t really relate, since I do eat meat, but it was interesting to hear and see this gathering.

Then, later on, Stefany participated in this costume contest, where all competitors supposedly won something.  The emcee announced the names of the winners who received some great prizes.  Each one was dressed as a fruit or vegetable or something “homemade,” since those were what the emcee apparently appreciated the most.  So, as we saw two asparagus, a bunch of berries, and a girl in a bikini made of lettuce take the stage, get recognized, and receive wonderful gift certificates to delicious-sounding restaurants, Andre and I were wondering if Stefany was going to “win.”  When she was later called, we saw the emcee hand her a book.  She wasn’t even featured.  Stefany later told us that the winners were all friends with the emcee.  Stupid.  I thought Stefany had such a well-thought out costume.

Favoritism.

Where’s Sensibility?

I remember when talent shows in the high school would draw in hundreds of people to the point that it would be hard to find a seat where you could enjoy the show.  This was three years ago, when I was a freshman.  When there was an awesome performance, I’d be pretty irked because everyone would be standing up, trying to get a better view of the act, thereby giving the people behind him or her a hard time.  It was a wave of frustration.  But when you did catch a glimpse of the performances, you’d be awestruck.

Now, the auditorium is only about a quarter full, which is proportional to the quality of the acts.  I mean, one can argue that the audience doesn’t really know what kind of acts they’ll see, so it’s not like anyone can prove that the higher the quality of the acts, the more people will come.

Anyway, my point is that the acts this year are pretty dull, not to mention bad.  Some might have just wanted five minutes of fame, not that being seen by twenty people would gain them acclaim.

However, there was one act that I truly enjoyed.  Now you’re going to have to believe me when I say I’m totally unbiased with this opinion, but my sister’s performance with her dance crew was good.  I don’t know.  Something about it made me smile.

</sentimental>

Or it can just be an older person mentality sort of thing.  I was a naive freshman, and maybe I was easy to please.  Now that I’ve seen more kinds of talents ranging from terrible to epic, I’m more critical.

So yea, where’s all the talent in our school?  Are we really just talentless?

Battle of the Classes today.  The senior class didn’t do so well.

It’s not a good week for photographs so far.
