Well, I have only five days left until I start my first day of college. I have two classes a day on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday, three classes on Thursday, and no class on Wednesday, Saturday, or Sunday.
Yesterday, Mom and I went to Hunter to go over my routes to, from, and through school. We also paid a visit to what I think has got to be the greatest sweet shop in the world: Dylan's Candy Bar. There's candy motifs everywhere you look, plus candy-themed music playing throughout the store, and even TVs showing candy-themed videos. They've got practically every popular candy you can imagine, in every flavor. To top it off, they even serve ice cream! I talked to John about the possibility of him visiting the place. Celebrities have actually gone there and signed packages of candy to be put on display. Even Monica Lewinsky has candy there... surprisingly, her candy didn't consist of chocolate cigars. >;)
I got Garbage Pail Kids bubblegum from that store. Yes, they've re-released those cards and stickers! I added them to my collection of stickers Topps released in Mad Magazine. There was an ad in the card pack for this new card game being released in 19 days from now called Creepy Freaks. I checked out the website, www.creepyfreaks.com. While the monsters are interesting, the 3-minute video they had turned me off. It was an animation of these established characters doing an actual battle. It's like a rip-off of Pokemon severely diluted with gross jokes. *shudders* The story about the characters and how they became in involved with the monsters is completely unoriginal. The characters feel like their personalities came from the Official Book of Cliches. Kids might like this (emphasis on "might"), but parents definitely wouldn't. In other words: DON'T BUY CREEPY FREAKS.
Oh, one more thing: the new boat is huge. 31 feet long. And it wasn't a duck decoy, it was a small painted clay duck that looks like a drake mallard. I like it a lot anyway.
Okay... five days... college... I'm nervous... wish me luck. The end.
