In detention - again, Part 1

I was in detention yesterday. And it was all because of Meredith Hopkins and her snotty friends.
They were lined up in front of the cafeteria when she made a snide comment making fun of my singing in Hebrew at the holiday pageant. Naturally this is a sore spot for me.
"You try singing in a foreign language," I shot back.
I'll write more on this later.

Holiday Pageant Preps

So preps 4 Friday's holiday pageant are in full swing. Cassidy even showed up in dress cause she's doing a solo Friday. That girl Sasha Moore has a solo too.
Cassidy has asked me to sing a Hanukkah song for the Jewish kids at school (I know of me and Ethan and one other person). I dunno. Hanukkah is OVAH, and in some ways I'm glad it is.

If the glee club concert weren't enuf, there's the Nutcracker ballet. 8th grader Maitte Luna is playing Clara this year. There's Cassidy (with Maitte) in the gym flexing, cause she's part of the corps, playing one of the party guests.

So Cassie (Cassidy) Fitzgerald is just about everywhere. And yes, she's still asking me to join the glee club. I reminded her that I'm Jewish and we don't celebrate Christmas, and she promised to include some Hanukkah songs.
We were walking to study hall when we started chatting. She's from West Liberty, Kentucky, which is one of those little towns you blink and you'll pass by.
Meredith Hopkins and Kylee Phillips both hate her so she must be doing something pretty good.
She's a fan of the TV show 'Glee,' loves musical theater, and dreams of going on Broadway. "I think I'm the only person on earth who has all three High School Musical movies on DVD and have watched them more than once," she said. I rolled my eyes.

She and I have study hall in our library, and our library has an actual bunch of real books. Very old books.

So I look over at her and she's looking at a brochure for Innerstar Magnet Academy, which is a school for smart kids, a school I'll never go to.

Happy Hanukkah!

Hanukkah is the Jewish Festival of Lights, it was today, on the 6th day of Hanukkah, that I got my Hanukkah outfit from Vee. I got to light the menorah for the first time at home too. At our house, each family member gets a turn at lighting the menorah. Today it was my turn and I was excited, cause it was the first time I ever got to light it. "Lindsey, you're a big girl now," mom said, "I think it's time to let you light it."
I tried to be as careful as I could with the burning candle -- but don't worry, everything is in tact and the house isn't burnt down.
There's a chance of snow flurries down here 2nite so K8 and I are gonna try to stay up as long as we can.
Oh, and I got Mini Rebecca as a Hanukkah gift, I'm so happy!
