Adolescent Oddities 2.0.

Today in my teenage angst, I love adolescence way more than I did when I fell into the category. I don't know if you saw this video over at Suzy's place but I've seen it now about eight times and I laugh just as hard each time. Adolescent oddities are just so wonderful and since we recorded it, our list has been steadily growing. Just yesterday Rock Tumblers was added. Those are almost more of a pre-adolescent oddity but they're weird enough to count.

Anyway, I came across this video, by a teenager that lived in the dorm of the boarding school attached to my college. That's a complicated concept. Anyway, a lot of kids come over from Asia to go to that High School - the purpose of which I haven't figured out - and end up thriving. We love them and lump them all into one category; the Asians. This is one of my favorite Asians, though we were never actually friends. I'm fairly sure she doesn't even know I exist. Either way, this video made my day. I love teenagers who are willing to make ridiculous productions like this. Just because they can. And that, my friends, is what the internet is for.

this mediocre college season Buffy-a-thon + your blog = teleportation back to 1999/2000 -- next time you're over PLEASE remind me to dig out my 10th grade millennium media project because i definitely used a GEL PEN on COLOURED PAPER (albeit not BLACK PAPER), probably whilst wearing my classy/classic grey fleece Gap vest! and AH spice girl gum!!?!? also -- just the word "cyber." thank you. (umm oh, and there actually kinda was a boy version of the Easy Bake Oven: Creepy Crawlers!!)

also: i'm so jealous i was not in the room while you guys had this conversation. but so thankful you shared it here.

also: i just imagine ben's childhood bedroom as being full of orange gifted possessions
