If you are truly a master of a martial art, you will never need to use it.
Ever notice how many famous people's last names end in the "uhn" sound? George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Abraham Lincoln, Rick Riordan, Bill Watterson, Gary Larson, Ludwig van Beethoven, Joseph Haydn, Emma Watson, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Thomas Edison, Frédéric Chopin, all the Kardashians, all the Clintons, I could go on and on and on...
In Lab Rats, season 1, episode two, with 40 seconds left, Hal Sparks and Angel Parker can be seen in the monitor having stopped acting!

Well, I slept on it funny on Friday night, so I guess it was Friday, but the point is, it's been hurting since [whenever]. I have to keep it still until the inflammation goes down, so I had to sit out gym at school today. As I write this, I'm at school and my class is watching Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days. Not sure how that's related, but this is a blog, so I guess I'm supposed to write stuff about my life that nobody else cares about. It's in my job description as a blogger.
Happy Mother's Day!
Wishing all you mothers a great day! Fun Fact: The person who came up with the idea of Mother's Day explicitly wanted the apostrophy to be before the "s". Debate. Over.
Well, actually, it was yesterday.
So I'm at the library, and I go upstairs to the older books. My friend's dad, who works at the library -- let's call him "Dayle" -- comes up to me and hands me a folded piece of paper, saying "Somebody dropped this off for you." On the paper, it says "for you" in handwriting I didn't recognize. I unfold it, and in different handwriting, it says "go to aisle x599."
Naturally, I go downstairs to the commanded aisle, and on the floor, I see a reciept for a book. Then on the shelf, I find an unsigned library card and a scrap of yellow sticky-note that says, in cursive, "what do you think were those puffs? If they were they in CA winter or summer?" I have no idea what is going on, so I go back upstairs and ask of Dayle, "What did the person look like?" Smiling, he says, "Well, that's a tough question to answer; she asked me not to identify her."
He acted like he knew who it was! But he said he couldn't tell me anything, except that I "don't need to worry; it's not a stalker or anything."
Then, I go back downstairs and, on a table, I see a folded piece of paper that wasn't there before! I launch myself at the table like a nuclear warhead on a sugar high, and open it up to read these words: "Use the card!"
I scan the card into one of those self-checkout computers, and discover that the person's account is blocked because they $18.45 in over-due fines.
Unfortunately, I had to go before I discovered anything else, but I left them a note, saying "I have to go. Continue later? I'll be back at the library next tuesday."

...no sign of the police yet, but with an explosion like that, it's only a matter of time. I'm sure we all hope Barney get out of the hospital soon. And now, let's go to Smily McTwinkletooth for the weather.
Thanks, Tina. Guess what, everyone? It's snowing! That's right folks, snow in April! I guess ol' Mother Nature was playing an "April Fool" on us by making us think it was getting warmer. And elsewhere, air currents coming in from the east should be hitting that heatwave in Kansas I lied about last week, making the weather in The Sunflower State cloudy with absolutely no chance of my predictions being correct.
Back to you, Tina!
