More rotten luck

K, so I was late 4 detention Sat morning (see last post 4 why) and they made me stay another hour. I was depressed about that.
So now Kate is depressed cause her beloved Cincy Reds lost (she calls it 'swept') in the baseball playoffs. She still goes back there every summer.
And my rotten luck has continued. Today I ran into Mia St. Clair and Natalie Spencer in the hallway, they had come from dance class. Since when do we take dance classes at Adams?
"Oh, hi, Linds and Kate," Mia said in between sips. "Where you guys off to?"
"We're going to the paper, we have to put out another edition," Kate replied, "news never sleeps."
Then she asked Mia why she dropped out of the race to be student council president.
"I've got regionals coming up in a few weeks," Mia answered. I'd forgotten that she'd been a champion figure skater and I thought she'd quit that.
Meanwhile, Cassidy is still on me about joining the glee club. I can't see myself doing it. At all.

A rotten day

2day was a mizrable day.
First I ran into Cassidy Fitzgerald in the hallway. Literally. Nearly knocked her down with my skates.
She didn't complain tho, she just dusted herself off and kept going. But not be4 she asked me for the 10,000th time if I wanted to join the glee club. She claims 2 have 12 sigs already. "Ya know, Lindsey," Cassidy says, "we could sure use your ... energy ... in the glee club." I roll my eyes. First off, I'm not even sure how she knew my name. Srsly, can y'all imagine me singing? Ok, imagine a croaking frog. That's what my brother Ethan says I sound like. I tried singing during dreidel last Hanukkah, trust me.

Next, I run into Hall-Monitor Hilary -- that's Hilary Lang, who is running for student body president -- and she totally gives me the evil-eye as shes setting up her campaign stuff.
Then, I forgot my gym clothes again so I heard the three words I dread most in the English language.
Saturday. Morning. Detention.
Apparentley, you could only not have your uniform a certain number of days before you get detention. So, now I have to get up at 8 on Saturday morning and go to detention for 4 hours. Fun. Not.
The worst thing of all, is I caught my brother, Ethan Bergman, who tries soooo hard to be kewl and hang around the kewl gurlz, with his arms around... yes the scum of the earth, Kylee Phillips. Ewwwwww.
And finally, this evening Vee comes home and says she needs $7K for dental work and some of us girls will have to be re-adopted out. She's said me and a few others are safe tho, she's gonna concentrate on rehoming Cabbage Patch dolls first before dealing with AGs. I don't wanna see anybody leave, even tho I don't like some of 'em, most of 'em I don't even know well.

Glee Club

The election isn't the only thing going on at Adams Middle School.
We now have a glee club (insert green barfing emoticon here) and we owe it all 2 one person.

Her name is Cassidy Fitzgerald, she moved here from Kentucky, she's a fan of the TV show "Glee" and she dreams of going on Broadway. Gag me.

Anyway, they're signing folks up for the glee club till the 15th. I saw Cassidy in the hallway with her table.

I looked over while I was coming out of the cafeteria and I saw Harriet over there with Cassidy. Harriet? Glee Club?

Sure enough, when I passed by Cassidy's table, I see "Harriet Jones" written on the page. I can't believe she signed up for this. Wait till I tell this to Haley.

And the candidates are...

Hey, I'm Kate reporting. I love this stuff, it's my passion.
The candidates for student body president are, from left to right: Meredith Hopkins, Hilary Lang, and Mia St. Clair.
Meredith, of course, is the spoiled rich snob who thinks she can get anything she wants just by snapping her fingers and saying boo.
Hilary Lang is the honor student who went to the national spelling bee last year. She just returned from a year at a California prep school.
Mia St. Clair is the star athlete at Adams. She dabbles in figure skating, field hockey, volleyball and basketball as well. Her dream is to qualify for the 2014 Winter Olympics.
In a few days I'm going to have to sit down with all of them, ask them questions about themselves, and write an article about them. Frankly I'm not wild about either candidate, I can't wait till I myself am eligible to run next year. I don't know any of them well.

And yesterday in the gym it was MY duty, as reporter, to moderate the debate between them. "What would you bring to the office if you're elected president?"
"When I'm elected president," said Meredith.
"You're not going to get elected," countered Mia.

Hilary added, "Besides this is Haley Hotchkiss' spot and whoever gets elected is just filling it until she gets back."
"Whatever. When I get elected I'm going to make sure I'm queen of the school and we have all the rockin', happenin' dances and parties."
I heard some boys in the back row applauding.
Then I asked Hilary the same question.
"If I'm elected president," she said, "I'll bring a sense of responsibility and leadership. I'll work hard to make Adams Middle School the best it can be."
Meredith feigned a yawn.
"If I'm elected president I'll bring the same dedication I bring to my sports to this job. I don't like to lose and I'll make sure Adams Middle doesn't either."

Then Vicky Vaccaro stood up. I was surprised at Vicky, because usually she doesn't talk unless one of her posse does.

"Why do you want to become president?" she asked. And to my surprise she asked a good question.

"Why else would I want to be president?" Meredith asked. "Because I deserve it."

Hilary straightened up. "I believe I'm the person best suited to represent Adams Middle School and I'll be sure to do the best job I can."

Mia stepped back. She looked around the room ... and then stepped forward again. "I've decided to leave the race and support Hilary Lang's candidacy."

If this didn't get crazier...
