Fan Moment and much more

So if you guys don't know this already, I'm kind of a nerd.  I mean, hard-core, care-about-the-stuff-no-one-else-does NERD.  With that said, when I was told that a local news station was coming to my high school (my favorite news station, actually), I kept wondering "OMG WHO ARE THEY GONNA SEND?!?  I HOPE THEY SEND FRANK!!!!"  Well, guess what? 

THEY SENT FRANK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My goodness, guys, I can't even tell you how much of a fan moment I had - when I didn't have to get up at such an ungodly early time, I used to watch him every day (he's the weather man) and he always made my day seem less sucky because he always had jokes and made me smile.  My days probably wouldn't have been as good as they were without him.  Even now, I really enjoy watching him.  We don't always have the news on in the morning because my sister is asleep, but when we do I always make sure it's on that station.  So when I say they had sent him, I freaked out.  I wanted to say hi so bad.  Now, before you get any ideas, no I don't have a crush of Frank, he reminds me of my Uncle Dave and that would be very wrong.  But I couldn't go say hi because he wasn't near me, even when I had to go out with the student councils and lose tug-a-war so horribly it's not even funny.  I was sad, very, very sad.

But then...

The freshmen had a meeting after the pep rally and we had to all sit on one side of the bleachers, which meant I had to walk across the gym floor.  Where Frank was standing.  O.  M.  G.  So I went up to him and asked him to sign my school shirt.  He was so nice about it, and he's just like he is on TV.  I was so excited and all I managed to say was "Are you Frank Marzullo?  You're my favorite!"  He smiled and said "Thanks" and agreed to sign my shirt, asked my name, and drew a sun shine by his signature.  (See picture for proof.  And of course, my brother and friend had to follow suite - of course my friend lent me his Sharpie for my fandom moment.)  It was A-MAZ-ING!

In other news, I got Mockingjay yesterday, but haven't started it yet.  I'm still working on Think of a Numb3r by John Verdon, hoping to finish that soon.  I also got a copy of Mockingjay for my librarian from last year.  It took the library a while to get Catching Fire in when it came out and a lot of people got annoyed, so I thought I'd just grab on for my favorite person ever.  I think it'll be a nice surprise in her mail box on Monday.  :D 

We stopped by the Jr High after school today, but only ran into two of my many teachers.  None of which I had little gifts for.  Guess that just means we'll have to go back soon.

Let's see, what else is going on?  My school has a big game tonight - first of the season.  It's an away game and I was going to go, but now I don't really feel like it.  I'm tired and my stomach hurts, so I'm not going to go.  But....GO WARRIORS!  Hope we do great tonight! 

Guess I've gone on long enough about this stuff.  First week of high school down, many more to go.  Oh well, it's not as bad as I thought it would be.  Being a freshman, though, I feel really little. 

Hope you all are off to a great school year, and here's to a great weekend!  Don't know about you, but I'm sleeping in tomorrow!  So incredibly tired - and only after one week!

With eternal love and blessings to Frank,
Officially Inspired
