March 20, 2007

Just when I thought I couldn't take another day of winter, the weather gods have taken pity on me and given me a break. Okay, it was a short break - only about four hours of sun yesterday afternoon before dissolving back into rain again.

Anyway, the brief burst of sun means one thing - spring is almost here. And spring means one thing - spring break! The hard partying in Cancun is going to have to wait until I'm in college - or, you know - until my mom will let me travel without her. So I'm going to have to come up with slightly more reasonable plans. I imagine there will be a lot of PlayStation, skateboarding and foosball. Yup, Ben just got a foosball table in his basement. That's almost as good as getting my own. Score!

I'm still playing with the camera my aunt got me a lot. Mostly, I've been taking pictures of my dog because he doesn't mind how long it takes me to set up my shots. I'm hoping to branch out to other stuff once the weather gets nicer. There's some pretty cool graffiti in my city that I'd like to take pictures of. Maybe I could enlarge some of the better shots and hang them up in my room. My space could definitely use a re-vamp - but I draw the line at sewing my own curtains like Sindy did.

But back to my dog for a second. Have you seen that there is this recall on for a bunch of different pet foods? Thankfully my dog Ralph wasn't affected, but I read that some people's pets died! I didn't mind last year's spinach recall (who wants to eat spinach anyway?), but if a pet food company hurt Ralph, I'd freak out.

So, what are your spring break plans? Are you going on vacation or are you just hanging out at home? !

Later,
Simon

    Okay, since I'm a girl and have helped many of my guy friends with this (even though I think they r too young for this but meh whatever), I can give you some advice.  1) Don't be mean or nice. You have to be yourself. Don't be nasty to her to get her to like you (it won't work), nor should you be Mr Nice Guy. Don't be there to carry her bag for her just yet.  2) If you want her attention, be creative. Writing a song is a good idea, but don't dedicate it to her. Just pretend you're aiming it at the general female population of your class. You can tell her that it's for her later, when she's into you. 3) Find out what she likes. Does she play instruments? Does she do sports? Does she fangirl over stuff? Does she play video games? Find out and DISCREETLY get her to know that you like it too, if you do of course. This is what worked for one of my friends: 1) Stay low until the perfect moment. If she falls over, come over and help her up, smile at her and blow her away with your charms, and then proceed to say hi and ask for her name as if you don't know her. It is creepy when a random guy knows your name and says it to you.... it just is idk. Walk away without looking back. This will make her curious for this stranger who helped her up. Do this for whatever situation. BUT JUST ONCE. DO NOT REPEAT. 2) If this happens again (she falls over etc), be sure to be really obvious that you're not going to help her up. Walk by without sparing a single glance. She will be reminded of you and wonder why didn't you help her. This is good - you want her to think of you. 3) Do something sweet for her. For example, if she likes a particular drink or cheap snack, buy it for her and walk up to her. Give it to her, but say something like "Hey _________! Here you go. I accidentally bought the wrong flavour and didn't want to throw it away. Don't worry - I didn't open it. Do you want it?" She should say yes, and ask for your name to say thank you. That's when you tell her. 4) Start to wave to her in the hallways and say hi sometimes. Don't do this too much though. Sometimes, if she waves first, ignore her. This should make her want your attention more. 5) Do something sweet again (like the song), but aim it not directly towards her (like I already said before - aim it towards girls in general). If you want some more, tell me! I hope this helped, but it might not - depends on what kind of girl she is.
