Kids these days!

Watching Extreme Makeover Home Edition and I just came to the SADDEST realization ever. The blonde designer lady asked a group of girls if they pass notes to one other in class, and they were like, "No..." and then they all simultaneously whipped out their cell phones. "But we send texts!"

OUR CHILDREN ARE NEVER GOING TO PASS NOTES IN CLASS! OR LEARN HOW TO FOLD NOTES INTO CRAZY LITTLE POCKETS AND SQUARES AND TRIANGLES.

I seriously think I have handfuls of notes at my house from daydreamer and nyrclooch and foreverseenstar. In fact, foreverseenstar just hucked one at me from across the room. :) It made me giggle. She also made me cookies because she knew that I'd be bummed from my exam.

Which I am. Kind of. I'm kind of happy to be done... but it was bad. Half the exam I couldn't even narrow anything down... I was just randomly picking answers. Well, hopefully there will be a curve, because seriously the only thing I really really really want for Christmas is a B in Genetics. Cross your fingers for me.

So anyway, I'm going to try to put it out of my mind because there's nothing I can do about it now. And there are much happier things to focus on like the pile of holiday (not sympathy!) cards I got today, or the fact that we have clean carpets again, or all the incredible possibilities that next year olds. I gotta tell you, I'm really excited for 2008. I think it'll be a good year. :)

Oooh, ooh! Gotta go! Shot At Love with Tila Tequila finale! TEAM DANI!! \o/ Later, skaterz.

We'd fill up the back of our notebooks.
And dude, PAPER FOOTBALL NOTES!

The trend at my school was keeping all of your correspondence between you and someone else in a notebook. You'd write them a note in the notebook, then give the book to them, then they'd write to you in the notebook and give the book back to you, and so on.

We did the notebook thing, too, but there was fic in it and not notes.

That is SO sad. I have an entire box full of notes I saved from high school alone. We used to make crossword puzzles for each other on graph paper we were supposed to be making graphs or whatever on. Wow. I never really realized how dorky that was.

Oh, DUDE, I completely forgot Tila was on. Damn. I'm sure MTV will have it on fifty times between now and tomorrow, though. And Dani is totally going to win. There's no way she isn't.

I will keep my mouth shut about Shot of Love so as not to spoil you.

Crossword puzzles? That's awesome. :)

I miss passing notes. I used to be the sweetest note folder at my middle school.
And I still hvae boxes of notes in my bedroom. My 16 year old sister was going through them the other day and making fun of me. It was so great bonding time. =)

Notes were seriously the best. I don't know if I remember any of the folds anymore... man, good times.

You can't stick a text message through a vent in someone's locker! LAME. I definitely have some notes from y'all somewhere.
