Yesterday during Drawing we put the Christmas music station on. Then a few of the girls in my class started talking about how much they LOVE Christmas and how happy Christmas music makes them. Turns out, it makes everybody happy because soon everybody was singing along and dancing to "Jingle Bell Rock", "Frosty the Snowman" and lots of other songs. It was an awesome class.

Today in my physical science class we were presenting our simple machines. There were dog food, fruit snack, and water dispensers, a banana guillotine, and the "box o' fun" (no, not of). Anyways, finally we got to the "almond launcher" which, as stated in the name, launched almonds. Except it didn't really work that great while the group of two girls were giving their presentation. And when it finally did start working, one of the guys in my class just happened to be standing in front of it and the teacher didn't see it. So then the class started to make fun of it. Somebody asked, "Why does it say 'Bear Paw' on it?" (it was made out of an old shoe box). One of the girls presenting replied, "Because it's so agressively amazing!". It made me laugh

Last week before gym, one of my friends was eating her way through a box of milk duds. Then she put it up to her face and blew into it, making a sound like a kazoo. While she did that, she tapped on the side like a drum and did this weird squeaking thing she can do. It was super cool and at the end she tipped the last one into her mouth and did a mini bow. Made my day. =)

Today at school I watched a movie/informational video on the history of the Catholic Church in Minnesota. At the very beginning, the narrator guy was walking through a graveyard talking about the Church's founders. I don't think anybody was paying attention (it was a religious informational video) until the narrator said, "Well, we'd love to ask them (founders) about it, but the problem is, they're all dead!" after which nobody in the class could stop laughing.
While I was researching my family history last week, I found out that my great great great grandpa literally dug his own grave. He worked as a gravedigger at the cemetery right before he died and well, . . . yeah. It made me laugh because usually that phrase is only used a metaphor. =)

Today in Drawing I started my self portrait. . . it's not going to well. Everyone's like, "Bandit that looks JUST like you! When in reality, the creepy eyes and pig nose I've drawn bear no resemblance to my face. At least the teacher hasn't told me mine looks scary yet. . . (Yes, some people have actually gotten this comment from her). Not excited for Drawing tomorrow. . .

So yesterday when I walked into class and there were not tables. Instead, the chairs were all lined up aroung the edge of the classroom to make a giant circle. So I said, "Wow, this is weird". Then my teacher shouts, "NO YOU'RE WEIRD!!!". Yeah my english teacher pretty much just insulted me. The two other teachers in the room were practically falling off of their chairs laughing at me, saying things like, "Oh that was totally uncalled for, hahahaha!!!" and "That's hilarious!!". All 3 of my teachers were laughing at me just because I made a comment on the classroom setup. Jerks.

According to one of my friends at school, bananas will become extinct in the next 10 years due to this mysterious tree disease in Asia. She even '' double checked it with her super-smart older brother and her cousin". She tells this to everybody, and also that they should treasure and /or save their bananas. She also says that she's going to start a banana stockpile.
I told her that she's crazy because, even if, by some odd chance, bananas go extinct, scientists will create some banana hybrid or whatever.
Nobody believes her. So far, I'm winning. =)
