Well, I was right. This Ring Dance wasn't all that great. The first twenty minutes or so were about as cool as the ring dance got, mostly because they were playing cool Hawaiian music (the theme was "A Night At the Luau"). I meant to ask the d.j. where he got the c.d, but I never got around to it.

I hung around with Jeff B. and Ali for most of the dance. Jeff and I didn't want to dance, but Ali was trying to get us to "succumb to the Dark Side," as we had dubbed it. With about ten minutes to go, Jeff and I were seduced by the Dark Side, and we did a little mock-dance taught to us by the Master, Jeff C. Jeff's so-called dance move the was "The Gorilla." It consisted mainly of hopping from one foot to the other while waiving one's arms in the air. I coined my own dance move, in which I swung my shoulders around, letting my arms fly loose as if they had gone completely limp.

Mr. Coleman, my geometry teacher, was walking around during the dance with a digital camera while trying to take pictures of everyone who was at the dance. I had to pose for him twice. You could tell that most of the girls at the dance were "hot for teacher."

Oh, and I got my class ring.

I was just reading about some old Jedis in my Star Wars Encyclopedia. I learned about Ulic Quel-Droma, the fallen Jedi who murdered his brother Cay; and former Dark Lord of the Sith, Exar Kun, as well as some other Dark Jedis who lived roughly 4,000 years before the Galactic Civil War.

I've suddenly become very interested in the ways of the Force. I used to be a big fan of bounty hunters and freighter pilots and the like, but now I'm into Jedis. I've noticed that each Jedi has his own style of lightsaber dueling. For example, Obi-Wan Kenobi has a very animated, fluid appearance in lightsaber battles, however Qui-Gon Jinn seems to have his lightsaber in the right place at the right time, seemingly exerting almost no energy whatsoever.

I'm starting to sound really weird. I'm going to shut up about Star Wars for the time being.

My allergies are really bothering me right now. My nose is really runny and is dripping down my throat, which burns like an idiot right now. It's killing me.

Okay, I'm done.
