I know that you like the power rangers. When you are in partners with Chris you alway laughing? I like the way you laugh. Your alway yawning in class. I wish you could have beat Abba at basketball. I hope you get beater at basketball next year.

Dear J.D.,

When I met you I thought that you were nice. We've shared some good times. I remember when we did work stations and we did the shark packet and did the shark crossword. Do you remember when we went to the computer lab together? Remember when we made daffodils, lilies and tissue paper flowers that we made for Mother's Day. Did you think they were hard to make when you made them? I did. When I finished I thought they look good.

Your friend,

Philippines Vacation: Day Two

I’m Looking for a New Friend

Image via CrunchBase Well, one of the three actual people on my myspace top friends thing deleted his profile. That means there is a spot opening up! I don't like having people I don't know on there (even though Demetri Martin is hilarious, I don't actually know him) I will be taking applications for an undefined period of time until I find that new friend. It could be you! But it probably won't be because I expect millions of applications.

Here are some of the qualifications and requirments for the job and the honor of being one of my top friends:
