Happy "IN YOUR FACE, Britian" day :)

Had a great time at Bobby's annual 4th of July party. Was there for nine hours. Tis a long party! Met my Advanced Article and Essay prof for the fall, he's a member of Bobby's barbershop chorus. I'm even more excited about it now. Cool guy.

Ate two hamburgers. More beef than I've eaten in awhile, but I've been working up to it. Soon I'll be able to eat it without getting sick! Woo.

Everyone ate my roasted veggies. YES. I GOT THESE PEOPLE TO EAT VEGETABLES. Rock.

I also had a brownie, which was stupid. I don't like brownies. But the old guy offering me one looked so hopeful.

Lots o' people. Lots o' babies. Only had to do the flying trapeze once with Savannah and three times with Liam.

Lots o' fireworks. Hundreds. Pretty. Fire. Ooooh, Fire.

And Guitar Hero, which made me want to get Rock Band, until I found out Ilan owns it. Sweet.

Use Givoogle.

Short story

My first short story since I was four, when I wrote "The Goat That Had Two Heads"

The writing exercise was to read Chekhov's Misery and write a sort of character-sketch story where a big event has recently happened, and to show the aftermath.

Here's my take on it.
