So I went to party...

Well, a party by Catholic-school standards which means the parents were never more than eight feet away from the most distant party-goer. No alcoholic beverages were served and all music had to be appropriate for a five year old child. And yes, there was a five year old child present; she enjoyed attacking everyone with no recourse from the parents... I hate children.

 

So, the party consisted of almost exactly the same people that were present at movie night (see the last post). Discussion rambled from the birthday girls iPod nano to the news that a former Math teacher is soon to become transgendered. It was really interesting seeing the different reactions from friends. Some found it disturbing (he was widowed with a daughter), others thought it unsurprising (he had practically worshipped the female gender), and my friend from Thailand wondered why people were making such a big deal over it. Transgenderism in Thailand isn't uncommon, and one of his best friends is taking estrogen and is a transvestite.

 

Someone had a camera, so pictures were taken. I agreed to put up with a few pictures, but wasn't thrilled. The Norwegian from the last blog entry was there and she wanted to have her picture taken with me. So did her best friend so all three of us posed together. I had a blonde on either arm. A picture was taken, but apparently it didn't turn out right so they asked me to pose again, and just before the flash went off they leaned in and kissed me. I hate my life. Why couldn't I just be heterosexual? Whyyyyyyyy?!

 

Three things went through my mind during the kiss. 1) You know, "Norway" owes me a box of girl scout cookies 2) I'm going to have to go on a killing spree if that picture gets passed around. 3) Damnit, now I have cooties.

According to wkipedia:

 

Cooties is a slang word used primarily by North American children to refer to a fictitious contagious disease or condition. It usually presents along gender lines, as in "Kevin K. Ford, stay away from those girls or you might get cooties!"

 

I guess it's unfamiliar outside the US?

That's often how it's used now, but the "fictitious" use is derived from the basic meaning of the word "cooties", which is body lice. Not to gross anyone out or anything. :P

We don't have cooties in the UK... Well, obviously we do but... eww.

 

It's such a cute sounding name for something so unpleasant. I do like he ficticious aspect though. Cooties could be 'anything' nasty!

 

Thanks for the heads up.

Hey Shadows,

 

Hmmm, I remember the parties at my Catholic school being much wilder 0:) Of course sometimes the tamest ones were also the most fun :)

 

Look on the bright side, these two beautiful girls wanted to hang on you and kiss you. That's got to be flattering even if you aren't interested.

 

I remember my Senior year of high school; in my civics class myself and two others were the only guys in the class. This had something to do with it being an honours class and the three of us being the only honours boys who didn't play football or basketball (so the rest were having a P.E. class that period). Anyway it was alot of fun, I got quite a bit of attention ;) . At the end of the year the teacher wanted to take a class photograph, both for the yearbook and as a personal keepsake, so they decided it would be fun if in the picture I was laying across/in the arms of several of the girls. LOL it was an amusing picture.

 

I wouldn't be worried about it if yours get pubished or whatever, I be most of the guys will just be envious and the girls will just think it's cute.

 

Anyway have an awesome day and take care!

Kevin
