Santa in his firetruck

Our town has this cute tradition that i just love. On the Saturday before Christmas, Santa drives by neighborhoods in a firetruck (with sirens blaring) and hands out candy canes to the children. there are alot of helpers in the truck with him and lots of waving going on. I make Dillon come out on the porch with me and we wave frantically at Santa, hoping the firetruck will come all the way down our dead end street. (sometimes they do, sometimes they don't). either way it is quite fun.

I'm watcing one of my favorite movies, "Never been kissed" with Drew Barrymore, Michael Vartan (yummy),David Arquette and Leelee Sobieski. I love the concept. Drew Barrymore returns to highschool undercover. she had a rough time in highschool originally (ok, well who didn't?)and she has high hopes of having a better go round this time. it is cute, sweet and painful at the same time as Drew Barrymore is still quite nerdy, no matter how hard she tries. to quote her boss as she endures yet another embarrassing moment, he says "it's like the all humilation network". It is a fun concept to consider, would you fit in with the kids of today if you returned to high school undercover? (seriously doubt it, i'd have no patience for the dramatics- i'd be super-bee-atch) would you do anything different? it would be a perfect time to use that old adage, "i wish i knew then what i know now"! i think if anything i would be more aggressive; especially with this one guy who was always hassling me.the only thing i can't understand about this movie is why they put Drew Barrymore in such a horrible wig and ugly clothes for her big return to highschool! i definitely wish i had a boyfriend in highschool that looked like Michael Vartan!

That reminds me of when i was in 7th and 8th grade and this one guy, Terry, a football player, was always doing stuff to me. I had a paper route (ugh, i know!)and of course, he was on my route. he and his friends would throw rocks at me as i was riding away on my bike (sweet, huh?)he was such a smuck.In particular, he was really mean to my twin brother. so a few years ago, i went to my reunion for that school and saw that guy. he kept talking about how pretty i was, how great i turned out, etc. it was a little sickening to be truthful. finally i said to him, "why were you such a shithead to me and my brother in school?" i think he was a little surprised by my comment. i felt so empowered by telling him how i felt, that i don't even remember his reponse!
