Hey! It's me. Stinko! I'm back! :)
Did you have a good Christmas? I did, still enjoying the Christmas break; don't return back to school until the sixth of January.
Which is fine with me. School is one thing I can do without. Expecially since I still don't know most of the kids, and I still can't understand 'em half of the time!
For Christmas, I got an IPOD (my big gift), new clothes (I suppose Ma thought I needed new ones; they were gettin' mighty shabby lookin' according to her), some greenbacks (money is the best gift of all; you can't return it, and you can always use it), some new games for my computer, and some gift cards. Which is another great thing, really.
Gloria (she's my sister, the pain in the ass) spent Christmas with Gran and Gramps (she didn't want to be seen with the likes of me; she and I are always fighting), and Stevie's managed to stay out of the hospital so far this winter, which is nothing short of a miracle.
Seems the little guy is always getting sick at one time or another; he's just so fragile. His heart problems don't help; yet he's managed to stay well (for the time being, that is). Seems we got our Christmas wish: for the little dude to stay well, out of the hospital.
Made a new friend today: met him at the mall. His name's Johnny Sandusky. Seems life has kicked him in the tail. Born early, diagnosed with MD (muscular dystrophy) when he was a baby, has gotten weaker since. He's now terminal, dying, really depressing to see; yet he has more courage, more guts inside that little body than most people. You gotta' admire a guy like him.
He seems nice, although a bit shy.
Met Johnny's family too (boy, does he have a family!): his ma, his pa, his million brothers and sisters. All colors, all sizes, all ages. Looks like a rainbow to see them all. One of the biggest families I've ever seen; didn't know families came that big!!
Johnny was a bit sad; seems he broke up with his girlfriend; his girlfriend wanted more time to be a teenager, not worrying about romance. Too bad; I bet she dumped him because he's terminal, and that is a sad thing. If anyone should be there for him, it's her; I think what she did was cruel.
Not that I have any girls myself (who'd want me with my looks??), but I know how girls are, what makes 'em tick, and I think she gave him a rotten deal.
Anyway, after the mall, I went to the movies, saw "The Chipmunks Movie", which was one of the stupidest things I'd ever seen; yet Stevie, my brother, found it hilarious. Why, I don't know, but he loved it. All I could do was slink there in my seat, pray for it to soon be over. When it (mercifully) ended, I never was so glad to get outta' there!
Now I'm home, holed up in my room, enjoying the peace and quiet, enjoying my new IPOD, enjoying spendin' some serious computer time. I love weekends where there's no homework; it's where I'm in my zone. Nothing to do, nothing to worry about: just veg out, think of nothing, do nothing, just let myself get stupid! LOL
Well, I am going to go; Ma's orderin' pizza for all. Gotta' be there for when the pizza dude arrives! YUM!! I hope she ordered me a pizza with anchovies, black olives, and jalapenos! My favorite!!
Before I drool all over the keyboard, I'd best go now! Will write in here again! Over and out, this is the Stinkman veggin' on out of here!
Happy New Year to you guys! Hope we have a good 2008!
