These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

So, my mom's having me read this weird book called Prep that I just started reading tonight. Well, I read approximately 1/2 of a page and I already love it. Why?

The students' announcements were lengthy - the longer roll call was, the shorter first period would be - and filled with double entendres: "Boys' soccer is practicing on Coates Field today, which, if you don't know where it is, is behind the headmaster's house, and if you still don't know where it is, ask Fred. Where are you, Fred? You wanna raise your hand, man? There's Fred, everyone see Fred? Okay, so Coates Field. And remember - bring your balls."

I can tell this is going to be a great book. So finals are starting this week, and basically, I'm screwed. Seriously. Even worse, two of my hardest classes, Geometry and English, are on my birthday. Yay me. *sarcasm hand raised*

Well I'm feeling a little under the weather today, and I watched The Sound of Music over the weekend, so..........

Gabrielle's Klutziest Moments of the Schoolyear

You know what really bugs me? When people think they're better than someone else. No one is better than anyone. It doesn't matter your race, or religion, or beliefs, or what you do, or where you live....
We're all equal.
There's no reason to think you're superior to anyone else. Memento mori.

Sorry about that little rant there. I'm kinda cranky.
But to make up for it, I shall now name the top 5 things that Gabrielle has done to earn her a rep as a klutz.

5. I was in one of my school rooms and had to hurry so I could leave. I ran over to copy something really fast, and in my haste, I ended up running straight into a table and went sprawling across the floor. Of course, everyone happened to notice.

4. I was in the same room, but this time I wasn't even running. I was walking to the back of the room, and suddenly tripped over a teacher's laptop cord, which was, of course, connected to his laptop. Luckily, he ended up catching it before it smashed against the floor.

3. The same room AGAIN. (What is it about this room?) I was in Acting 1, and acting out a pantomime. Well, my pantomime involved me miming getting a tooth removed by having dynamite being lit in my mouth and being blown off a 3 1/2 foot table. I had practiced it several times successfully, but of course when I was ACTUALLY performing, I ended up landing on my knee, putting me in a knee brace for a couple weeks. For your information, I still get teased because of it.

2. I was in the lunchroom eating with my friends when they started teasing me by.....
Er, nevermind. But anyway, I ran out of the cafeteria claiming I needed a drink. In my hurry, I tripped UP the stairs, and landed on the corner of a step with both my knees. This was a couple weeks ago, and I still have bruises. Granted not all that many people saw.... Excluding the people around the steps. ...And my friends who were all watching me.

And now, for the moment y'all've (double apostrophes for the win!) been waiting for......

So lunchroom again. It's the end of lunch and most of the cafeteria has cleared out, excluding my friend and the still slightly full table right in front of mine. Since I'm feeling kinda happy, I decide to try to jump over the jumble of chairs clustered between my table and the one behind mine. Bad move. My foot catches on one of the chairs, and I face-plant on the table next to me. And of course my friend bursts out laughing. >.<

Well, how's that for a blog post? XD
