All The Stress!!!!!!!

I decided that I might die from all this stress! woohoo!!!! party hecka much!!! (ok....that was Ben) anyway, I have this stupid dance concert all week long, which takes up so much of my day that my Mom is ready to KILL ME!!!!!! Not to mention state is on saturday and we havent practiced that much....once....yesterday....and supposedly once today.....*shifty eyes*......I have been running on somewhere around four hours of sleep each night for the last three nights.....probably because Ive been either sleeping on my couch or my living room floor for the past two weeks.....in case you havent heard my room is infested with bugs! Worms to be specific....STUPID RICE BAGS!!!!!!! Oh yeah there are also Oatmeal bugs....those are dead though....they are just all over my floor.....so gross....

My bathroom is infested with Spiders....no matter how hard you try you just cant kill them all! They still live and as long they do so will Chad....sad isnt it?

By the way, (Bobby just brought this up) I cant drive my cars and I dont know why. My parents are insane....Ben says hecka much.

This blog is starting to depress me. Oh wait,....Jeremy wants to say something....."It is prudent to listen to the voice of wisdom as it speaks its ever so soft syllables."

I am losing my mind. Today, Criman found the SM keys that I was supposed to have in the hall. He asked me who took them from me and left them in the hall I thought it was Priscilla so I wrongly accused her. It was actually me. Im definitely losing it.

I am pretty sure I already blogged about being in the singles ward. That is much nicer than my own. They are nice to me....but they are freakin old.....they are almost all over 25.....gross, huh?

Ben has something profound to say....."If bugs ever took over the world, I wouldnt be worried. Because it would take about a billion bugs just to point a gun at me. Let alone pull the trigger. And, while they are trying to pull the trigger Id run around behind them and kick it outta their hands. hecka much."

I think I will have to finish this blog when Court, Bobby, Sam, Ben and Jeremy arent distracting me! MENS CHOIR!!!! *shakes whole arm*

*shifty eyes.....runs into a corner to cry*.....Im done

A Great Opportunity

I had the best opportunity just lying around in front of me. Unfortunately for me my parents are too stubborn to let me take it. I am talking about choir tour. The chance to perform in Disney world doesnt present itself to everyone everyday!

The total cost of choir tour would be $990. Brittanys parents were so kind and offered me frequent flyer miles so I wouldnt have to pay for the plane ticket half of the cost. How generous! I couldnt have thanked them enough!

That left my total cost at $530 but since I sold $20 worth of tickets to our concert it was down to $510. The Finacial Office ladies must love me because they found out that I could have a chance at going. They told me that if I could come up with $100-200 they would pay for the rest with donations they have recieved for tour! They said that they would rather spend the donations on me than some kid they dont know! "Awesome!" I thought, "That'll be easy since I am working rentals soon! No prob!"

Well, My mom wont sign the permission slip. She refuses to help me in any way. Mr. Billings wanted to talk to her. He said he would try and convince her to let me go, but unfortunately they have done nothing together but played phone tag. Mrs. Morrell the mommy in charge of tour also called my house and tried to convince her! Nothing....

I just read an email from Mrs. Morrell to Mrs. Mathews (quite by mistake! You see Im her TA right now) that made me feel really loved. Almost like Ferris Bueller! It said that Mrs. Morrell was getting worried about me not being able to go and she said she was going to play a trick on my mom to see if it worked. THE WHOLE SCHOOL IS ROOTING FOR ME!!!!! THEY ALL WANT ME TO GO!!!

Its so strange. I really do feel like Ferris Bueller! The Office ladies, the Assistant Principals, The Teachers, The students....what is this?!?!?

If nothing else comes out of this, at least I can rest assured knowing I am "popular". At least in my eyes I am popular. They way I figure it is, if you have the whole school trying to get your parents to consent to something they dont want you to do, because they know youd be happy there, I think thats popular enough for me!

SHMOOS:

I found a site about Li'l Abner comic strips as I was trying to find the script for our set design in Tech. I came across a story about a fictional animal in the old comic strips. So, I decided to post the article for you all to decide whether or not this fits our Shmoo...


The Shmoo first appeared in the strip in August 1948. According to Shmoo legend, the lovable creature laid eggs, gave milk and died of sheer esctasy when looked at with hunger. The Shmoo loved to be eaten and tasted like any food desired. Anything that delighted people delighted a Shmoo. Fry a Shmoo and it came out chicken. Broil it and it came out steak. Shmoo eyes made terrific suspender buttons. The hide of the Shmoo if cut thin made fine leather and if cut thick made the best lumber. Shmoo whiskers made splendid toothpicks. The Shmoo satisfied all the world's wants. You could never run out of Shmoon (plural of Shmoo) because they multiplied at such an incredible rate. The Shmoo believed that the only way to happiness was to bring happiness to others. Li'l Abner discovered Shmoos when he ventured into the forbidden Valley of the Shmoon, against the frantic protestations of Ol' Man Mose. "Shmoos," he warned, "is the greatest menace to hoomanity th' world has evah known." "Thass becuz they is so bad, huh?" asked Li'l Abner. "No, stupid," answered Mose, hurling one of life's profoundest paradoxes at Li'l Abner. "It's because they're so good!"
Ironically, the lovable and selfless Shmoos ultimately brought misery to humankind because people with a limitless supply of self-sacrificing Shmoos stopped working and society broke down. Seen at first as a boon to humankind, they were ultimately hunted down and exterminated to preserve the status quo. (Thought extinct after the 1948 adventure, one Shmoo always seemed to escape to Dogpatch's Valley of the Shmoon to form a new colony and a later plot revival by Capp). Licensed Shmoo merchandise became a huge phenomenon in the late '40s and early '50s, spawning a wide variety of dolls, toys, glasses, wallpaper, belts, books, jewelry, balloons, clocks, ashtrays, cannisters, salt & pepper shakers, dairy products, banks, belts and ear muffs. There was even an official Shmoo fishing lure! These are all highly collectible items today.
