whoa, just woke up from a nap all hot and sore-throaty. except, not really sore-throaty because i think my bed's got a dust problem. gross, right? but, yeah, seriously. i think i need to go vaccuum on it, which i imagine will be weird and something i will run to my journal and write about soon after because i am bound to do something wrong like suck up my sheets and get in trouble for getting them stuck in the rotors. or whatever they're called. it might be that memory pad dad all bought us for our beds. it's like sleeping on a cloud and it's just as good as my dream bed, the nautilus. you know, the one in those late-night informercials made out of nasa foam that like conforms to "fit every curve and shape in your body, ensuring a good night's sleep" except you just insert it under your bed lining. so so cool, although i think the fibers and dust are like settling in my throat when i sleep.
and speaking of sleeping, arlene claims that i snore really really loud, which i imagine can't be very attractive but oh well. when i think of my snoring i think of a buzzsaw and geez, i just sort of chuckled because i thought of BONESAWWWWWWWW!!! from the first spiderman movie.
anyway, before my nap, school was pretty awesome today and i loved it. i can add and subtract in french, i should whip some of that stuff out during geometry. our first sewing project for fashion and merchandising will be on friday. i think i'm going to make a skirt and we'll just see how that goes as i am a mere novice when it comes to those machines. i hope i don't sew through my finger like that guy did in project runway or whatever that show we watched at maggie's was called. ryan, one of the two boys in our class, is going to be making a pillow. i don't know why, but i think that is so cute. haha, a pillow.
drama was undoubtedly the highlight of today. there is a dead rat up in the ceiling above our classroom that no one can seem to unearth, and so because of the vile stench we got to hang out on stage again! we did more miming, this time in groups!! first we practiced miming a game of tug of war (boys against girls) and miss dertian would tell us which side was winning so we'd have to pretend we're struggling and sliding around and so on. she let the boys win, and so she turns to us and says, "well, girls, what happens when they pull really really hard and then let go?" and it was hilarious because we all mimed screaming and just tumbled backward onto the floor. it was a tangle of girls but we all got sorted out in the end. and then we did group pantomimes where we had to convey a certain emotion. fun, fun stuff. my group was awesome. we've got aggressiveness, infatuation, and loneliness down pat. what now.
geometry was all right. it's kind of my most boring subject, but it passes by really fast because mr. simmons keeps us busy. that i am thankful for! what was not cool was having to have the kids from bus 23 on bus 10 (our bus) and so we had to take this unnecessarily long route through stratford forest, cherry hill, bridge creek, planter's walk, the commons, bloomfield, gibbs forest, and finally my stop, piedmonte. feh.
