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. =)

the lady in the lake

On the drive back from my cabin we passed the lady in the lake like we do every time. The lady in the lake is a mannequin who wears a bikini year-round while it sits in the middle of a pond off the side of the highway in a floating lawn chair. It looks like she's been struck by lightning- her messy white hair sticks out in every direction. She makes me laugh whenever we drive by. =)

sorry about your lunch

In Spanish one day, somebody from another class had left their lunch in the room. When the teacher walked in, she asked whose lunch it was. Since none of us knew, she asked who wanted his (or her's) brownie. She proceeded to give away the brownie, a nature valley bar, two ham and cheese sandwiches, and a bag of grapes to my classmates. Nobody complained about being hungry that class. Thank you, mystery person, for your lunch.

Today during science my class played jeopardy in order to study for our test, the score was -50 to -30 to -90 (we were divided into 3 groups) . My group was wining because we almost never tried to answer any questions. The score in the end? 0 to 0 to 230. (The final jeopardy was a lifesaver.  Needless to say, I'm going to have to study more.

At soccer practice the other day, one of the girls on my team told my coach that he had Justin Bieber hair. What did he say? "I don't have Justin Bieber hair. Justin Bieber has my hair". Made my day.
