andy warhol and the demske

About a half an hour ago I came back from an award's ceremony for the Demske Writing Contest at our school. I got second place for a mini-short story I wrote [$30 prize!]. It suprising, because the only reason I entered the contest was because it was an assignment for English class. [Flipping through the magazine that goes with the awards-- plus those who sucked too much to win but still had good pieces-- there were a lot of people from my class in there, hah.]

S won traditional poetry for her poem "The Ballad of K-Fed" which I think it fantastic because it rose above all those trying-to-be-unique angsty emo poems that hardly qualify as original or unique. All those poems try to be something they aren't, and something purely witty and humorous beat them. I don't know... does anyon else see the beauty in that?

Today was my Andy Warhol presentation. So yes, I dressed in blazer and tie and sunglasses and a beret to hide my hair [with my bands combed all to one side with the rest pulled back] and acted like Andy. I was really nervous, which actually heightened my character, hah. My english teacher told a classmate "I'm not sure if she was just doing good character or was really nervous." But anyway, it went smoothly.

I'll be uploading the video sometime.

Well done for the story

Well done for the story prize
The Andy Warhol thing sounds fun I'm glad it went well, if you post the video I might post the video from my Big Spender routine (if my stupid friend ever gets round to sending it to me). Not that that's much incentive.

Hey, sounds like a deal to

Hey, sounds like a deal to me. Apparently, my video is too big for youtube. I'm going to have to save it as a different type of file or something. Because it's a short video.
