Oh so many secrets...

6 Very Random Things:

1} I'm reading Dracula for my English class and absolutely love it....which sounds so morbid and weird. Maybe it's the influence from the Twilight series I read this summer? Although those are so amateur to this tale! It's especially fun considering the Halloween holiday. Go Mr. Williams for excellent academic planning.

2} I love, love, loveeee High School Musical. I'm obsessed. I have both one and two on dvd and probably have watched both at least 47 times......I also have the soundtracks and know all the routines. Not to mention, a singing HSM2 pen that I use as my lucky testing utensil!

3} I smile when I text. Simple fact. No matter if it's mom, dad, sister, friend, or some lucky fella....I smile simply due to the fact that people care enough to take the time to communicate with me.......but the smiling causes people to think I'm having some super juicy, romantic conversation via the fickle text machine but it's totally just that mom wrote and said we're having string cheese and broccoli for dinner......which aint far from the truth!

4} I knock on wood. I finally started to allow myself to walk on sidewalk cracks. I see plenty of other people that do it and it hasn't broken their mother's back..

5} I don't like black licorice or mint peppermint patties.....ugh!

6} My left side is my good side.

Ryan Sherman. aka Tony "the guppy" Gippeto, Big Dog....

.....some times he even makes me call him Master. Kidding.

Picture the exact opposite of me. Uninhibited, crude, always full of surprises, witty, a wee-bit lazy, definitely ADHD...basically everything I can think of that I wish I was more of, so I didn't have to feel so boring...well, this is my co-asb president. Maybe we balance each other out? I hope so. But let me tell you just a little bit about him.

First of all, this is the guy that on our "Be a kid again" dress-up day at school, came in nothing but an adult Depends diaper. NOTHING else. Yes, I'm dead serious. And yes, he was only a junior. He was sent home, (somehow extremely hairy, bare legs and his super freckly stomach don't qualify as dress-code appropriate..), but needless to say, Ryan made a lasting impression on every person on our campus that day. He brought his own new "Sherm-style" definition to "school spirit."

Take two. It was "Old school dress-up day." Ryan decides to take it down a notch. Well, okay maybe only somewhat--he shows up in a 6 year-old's Pocahontas Halloween costume, (I'd say he was going super old school), that barely reached the bottom of his briefs....ahem, you get the picture. (He managed to actually grace us with underwear this day :)]

Take three. For homecoming this year I was able to fulfill my High School Musical fantasy. I was cast as Gabriella....and who do you think was cast as my love interest Troy? My beloved Sherman. We were in charge of our own costumes...which we were instructed to base off a specific scene in the movie. Ry decides to change it up Sherm-dizzle style and wear a coconut bra and grass skirt instead. (This was after I assured him that no, the administration would not allow him to wear his speedo.) Was I surprised? Not really. Was it a hit? Absolutely. Here we are:

Take four. Homecoming dance. We're all in formal wear. He was actually being quite the gentleman...and just when we are shooting the picture, he goes in for his infamous shock value. Well, you can see what I mean, look at his right hand:

I feel like I need to repent or something. Even though he was clearly six inches from me..... Ugh, that's Sherman.

You can't help but love the guy. He's quirky and he's slick, he's teasing and quite the kick, not to mention sometimes annoying as a tick....but I wouldn't go so far as to call him a pr____. Nah, not quite. He's my lovable Ry....who gives the most amazing back-scratches and hugs, and will do anything I ask after a few good the same time of being a little too obsessed with praying mantis bugs. I never tell you enough, but I sure do adore you Ry.

A year and a half later...

Okay, so I'm a blogging loser. Either that, or I just love that picture of me as a pirate wench. But my mother has been nagging me, so here's a brief summary for all posterity:

I left the pirate ship and went ashore...I continued living the high life at GOHS, went to Holland, three boyfriends later (no pirates), ASB president (ya I'm pretty cool), Trent got married followed by Danielle, almost forgot my little nephew Cason was born May of 2007, football season, basketball season, and football season again, yes, homecoming queen (it's a good thing my little sister has lots of friends), and here we are today...home from school with a really bad headache...and all my mother can say, "Get blogging! You don't have a brain tumor." (No offense to those of you who do.)

(Ryan, my foreign exchange buddy..(or Hans as Trent refers to him))
