Dude. Dude. Dude. Lots have happened since the last update.

Well, for those who read my last entry, you'd know that I had to take my permit test last Friday. So I did. I get to the DMV and I'm like, well, this will be boring, just sittin' here for a while... Turns out, I only had to sit there, for like, 5 minutes. Not only that, my buddy Eddy Solis was there too. Like I said, I sat there for my 5 minutes and then went to some old lady and she did the stuff. You know, the "Is this information correct?" and all that fun stuff. You know the one where shes like "Okay, now close one eye and read the chart"? I did that, and then she told me to switch eyes, but I pressed on my other eye when I closed it and made it all blurry, so I was like "Oh no!" But I did fine. Then I went over and had my picture taken. My mom said it looked like a mob shot. My hair filled the whole picture. No joke. I took my permit test and only missed 2, but those were trick-courtesy questions. No fair. Now on to later that day.

After the DMV, I went to a rehearsal for the Rene Claussen festival coming up soon at school. That was okay. The San Diego choir was supposed to be there, but they cancelled last minute. Dag. Then on to another rehearsal, at church.

So yeah, I had a rehearsal at church for my Confirmation. That went longer than it should have, just because of bad planning. So my sponsor and I were there from like 7 til 9 or 10. The next day was a very, VERY big day for me.

Saturday morning. I wake up and my grandparents are here. "Why" you may ask. For my Confirmation. So we get ready and go to the mass. Everything went good. I got lots of cool gifts like a ring, two necklaces (One of St. Gregory, the saint whose name I picked as my own. Just so you know, he's the patron saint of music, singing, and musicians along with some other stuff. The other of a gold Roman cross with Jesus attached to it.), some money and a Rosary. Good day.

Then Sunday. Went to church like always. After church, my family and I went out to IHOP (I Hate Overweight People). Well, on the way home we see the auto thingy at COC. So we drive in there (everyone else was walking) and my sister sees this car she wants to buy (a '91 white convertible Toyota Celica) and later that day, she gets it. Guess what this means, I get the Swedish Tank. Yeah, my first car, an '85 red Volvo 240. Not only that, its free. AND! it only has 82,000 miles on it. Freakin' amazing. My car. Whoa. And I just got my permit.

The rest of this week was okay. I got insurance for my car (WHAT!) and finished up the STAR testing. Its stupid though, they could have finished the testing LAST week if they made us test the whole day instead of HALF of a MINIMUM day. Idiots.

Today we (the choir and I) sang for Mr. Bolde (our principal/JFK) since it was his birthday. I thought we sounded great. It was cool. Also, there was voting today for next years' ASB. I voted for Jackie. I'm cool that way. Or something. It didn't seem like any of the candidates were ready or qualified for the positions. Then again, "a janitor could run ASB" like what my friend Boots said.

And I'm done. Anyone figure out the riddle from the last entry?

:: Music: Lagwagon-Status Pools. Duh.

Oh man, my permit test it tomorrow and I have to study for it up the yin-yang. Oh boy.

I need to update more. BUT FIRST, I need thingys to talk about. SECOND! I've listened to Status Pools (y'all should know what I'm talkin' about here) like, 2,344,981 times by now. Mmm... Lagwagon goodness.

So, this weeks been cool so far. On Monday, Concert Choir had the SCCEA Festival at Hart High. Fun. The singing and sitting there was okay, but, like always, I have a good time taking pictures of things. So I did.

Vince won the 300 dollar scholarship. Woot, go Vince! So yeah, he was picked from a bunch of other kids from other choirs and schools. Rock on Vince. I got an AWESOME picture of that.

And then I tweaked it a little.

Oh, and my school and I ('cept for the seniors, lucky bastards) have been taking the CAT whatever tests, which means MINIMUM DAYS!! Boo-ya! ANYWAY, I've been chillin' here at home, playing a little guitar, watchin' movies, playing video games, and eating. Good life. Well, I don't feel like typing anymore, so I'll leave you with this thought. What is it that spelled wrong is right and right is wrong?

:: Music: Lagwagon-Dancing the Collapse

That's a cool name for a song.
I really have nothing to talk about. So I will.

Well, tomorrow is a concert at the plaza where the Carls Jr. is. That's all I'm doin' tomorrow.

Hold that thought, I do have something to talk about, Spring Break. So last week was Spring Break. On Sunday, I almost broke my leg, but I think I told you about that. Then on Wednesday, I started my Drivers Ed at High Desert Driving School. There was like, no one in the classes. I think 7 of us total. So the first day, all I do is sit there, all by my lonesome. The next day I sit there again, but this time tried to make friends. So at lunch I got closer to the others in the class. Cool people, they were. One guy was from Saugus. The only guy in Show Choir last year. Him. The others were from like, a million different schools (even though there were 7 people). Then we played Pole Position (old Atari racing game) after lunch. That is such an awesome game. My driving instructor Troy was all over the place when he was playing it. He has one of those game cabinents you sit in, not stand, so when he came around a corner, he would shake the whole system. Hahaha. So later on we developed "The Troy-Turning Technique" which involved spinning the wheel to the left or right as hard as you could and shaking the cabinent. It worked.

So on the last day we had a different instuctor, who believed he would use everything he could to teach us about driving, which included drunk goggles, Pole Position, and Crash-Test Dummy dolls. We would play Pole Position with the goggles on and then would throw the dolls at each other with the goggles on. So people almos fell over. It was weird though, because those goggles didn't really affect me. I was able to play the game well and catch almost every doll thrown at me. Don't worry, this doesn't mean I'll drink and drive. I'm smarter than that. So, I had a good time.

Well, nothing more to really talk about. I've had the same CD (not a song, the whole CD) stuck in my head for 5 days. It's been an awesome 5 days. Oh, and the CD was my new Lagwagon CD "Blaze". Good stuff.

NOW I'm finished. Goodnight.
