Hello, ladies and gentlefellows, and welcome to the first non-story-related post in a while!
Yay!! Thank you very much, sulz!
The cup rewards volume. In turn, I award it to Gentledove in recognition of the sheer quantity of thoughtful, witty and beautiful poetry to be found on her blogs, http://gentledove.wordpress.com/ and http://gentledove2.wordpress.com/.
I said previously that I’d been a bit of a jerk lately – not that anybody seems to have noticed – so on Tuesday, I was determined to be nice to everyone, and not be mad at anyone. Everybody immediately noticed that I was happier than I have been lately, although they thought I’d been terrified, not grumpy! I think I only have five facial expressions: happy, sad, confused, scared and occasionally disgusted (generally speaking, confused is my default expression).
My resolution to not be angry with anyone was tested somewhat by an acquaintance of mine who was being – as usual – exceedingly annoying, and surpassed himself on Tuesday by jumping on my back without warning, falling off, knocking into two of my friends in the process, and then – ignoring my friends’ complaints and distressed noises – proceeding to rant at me for being lousy at giving piggybacks. In fairness, though, he has been made aware that his behaviour irritates people, and is making an effort to be less annoying, bless him.
Anyway, I’ve been feeling a lot happier these past couple of days. I gave everyone cards, and we’ve been eating chocolate and generally feeling more festive than usual. We’re going for a meal on Monday, which should be cool, although it will also be expensive.
Tomorrow after school I will be attending the Sixth Form “Snow Ball” (ho ho, how very droll), a semi-formal excuse for alcohol for which all guests are required to wear suits. I haven’t got a suit, but never mind, I’ll improvise something. Probably something resembling my walrus costume. Probably without drinking straws, although I suppose they could come in handy.
So, this seems like an appropriate time to wish you a very happy festive season, whether or not you celebrate Christmas. Have fun!
