Heyyyyyyyyyy, I haven't posted here for a while!

I've been playing this computer game called The Sims. It's kind of like SimCity, except that you have to build and design a house for your characters to live in, and you have to tell them what to do all the time. The first time I played it, I obviously recreated the Moffatts, but managing four men became soooooooo hard! You have to tell them to go to the bathroom when their bladder's full, lol. LMAO, you won't believe how many times "Clint" pissed on the ground! They all became depressed, so I just deleted that family and decided to only have Scott and Dave. Scott's falling in love with my little sister's character, Marcella. I was like, "Ewww, no! That's so mushy! I don't want Scott to be talking to her anymore!" But my sis wanted to see them get married. It's a pretty addictive computer game, I'd have to say. We were playing it for hours on end.

Yay, I'm registered in the most of the classes I want! I'm gonna do squash and racquetball for phys. ed. I heard that the teacher's REALLY nice, which would be a nice change from that bitch J*** G***. My English class is called "Midieval and Renaissance Literature". I dunno why, but I've always found all this stuff with castles and kingdoms and knights and royalty to be really cool.

I'm getting kinda bored of the Internet. I hardly get any e-mails, ever since Paloma went on vacation. (HI Pal!) Anywho, my best friend *used* to e-mail me a lot, but she's too busy spending time with Luke. Not that I care. At least I won't have to hear any more comments from her about how I'm not good enough to get a PhD in university blah blah blah.

I'm working on a piece of Moffatts fanfic, but knowing me, I'll probably just get discouraged and delete it halfway through. In this story (I haven't chosen an official title yet. Its temporary title is "Triforce"), I integrated Scott and one of his fans (who, quite strangely enough, resembles me. :p ) into the world of The Legend of Zelda, with a few adjustments to the setting.

You know what's so cool? My brain has never felt so relaxed. I'm sooooo relieved to be taking a break from school. I deserve it, lol!

Meh, I dunno what else to type (again) so I'll be off. Tootles!

Okay, what is it with me that makes me always feel bummed out on Christmas Eve? Grrrr, I've been listening to that "My Only Wish" song by Britney Spears for the past 45 minutes. If I don't switch songs, I'm gonna puke...okay, I'm listening to Teenage Dirtbag. lol, not a very Christmassy song!

Kit and his family don't celebrate Christmas. I wonder if they do anything on Christmas, you know, just to take advantage of the day off.

Uh oh, Muriel's having a flashback. I'm remembering that day when Siberia totally ruined my plan to talk to Kit.

Anywho, here's what happened. Since I'm really shy, I never really had the guts to talk to Kit, so one day, I decided to start a conversation about Tekken (this video game on Sony Playstation) with him. Oh yeah, this was last year, in grade 11. I had everything planned: How I'd start the conversation, what exactly I'd talk about, what tone I'd use, what questions I'd ask him, etc. I planned to talk to him during our EMR class, 'cuz the teacher usually ends class ten minutes early, so we get to do whatever we want until the bell rings. I was really looking forward to that Friday, and I asked Siberia not to talk about Tekken with her boyfriend-to-be-at-the-time, because I was gonna sort of start the conversation with both him and Kit. Oh, and the reason why it was so important that she doesn't talk about Tekken with him was because the previous Saturday, we played Tekken at the movie theater arcade for the very first time, and we thought it kicked ass, so I was planning on telling the guys that we started playing the game and so on.

On the day before my plan was going to go into action, Siberia stayed after school for the chemistry "récupération", and I wondered at first if she could resist talking about Tekken to that boyfriend-to-be (hell, let's just call him Luke, okay?). But then I figured, "Hey, I can trust her!" Guess what. The next day, I found out that she blew it. At the recup, she told Luke that she tried Tekken for the first time. Way to go, Siberia *sarcastic applause*. You know I have a lot of trouble getting a conversation going with people I'm shy around, and you totally blew it for me. I couldn't go up to Luke and Kit and repeat some news they already heard. They would just say, "Oh yeah, Siberia told us that yesterday."

Maybe I should've just thought up another conversation topic, and then plan that one out carefully, but I was just too disgusted at my best friend. She knows how shy I am, and how hard it is on me, but she didn't seem to care at all. It's all about her, her, her. Hey Siberia, while you're at it, why don't you just go out with Kit. That'll make it complete.

I can't believe she broke her promise to go to the Moffatts concert with me. I'm having a hard time selling that extra ticket, and I asked her three times in total to come with me. The first time, that was when she told me that she wasn't going to pay for her ticket, so that was pretty much a flat-out no there. The second time, when she asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I asked her to come with me to the Moffatts concert since my other friend couldn't come, and I also said that that could count as my Christmas present and my birthday present put together, but she was like, "Isn't there something other than that you want?" I said, "Well, unless you want to be seen buying the Moffatts' country albums..." and she said she'd prefer the second one. She knew I'd have to sell the other ticket, but she didn't care. The third time, I said that I really couldn't find anyone else to use the other ticket, and that if I didn't get someone to buy it, my mom would come with me, but Siberia didn't want to again. She said she'd think about it. Wow. I know she's gonna say no in the end anyway.

I mean, come on! It's not like I'm asking her to move to Antarctica or anything! It's just *one* fucking concert! I even told her in an e-mail that the reason why I wanted her to come was because I knew that the day of the concert would be one of the best days of my life, and that I wanted my best friend to be there when it happens. But she didn't care. Jeez, one concert. Is that so much to ask...

What a fucking insensitive bitch she's become. I'm not asking her to change her life or anything. She'd rather see me struggle in selling the ticket than to go to that one concert. Fuck.
