How was your week?
Did you win a freestyle rap competition at school?
Did your improv troupe raise over $130 for Operation Uplink?
Did you get linked by some of your favorite bloggers for making what amounts to a pixelated fat joke?
Because if not, I'm totally making you look like a slacker right now, friend.
The handsome Puma headgear, 100% old school hip-hop, which I'm sporting at right, I won for being the bestest battle rapper in all of fifth-hour lunch. I wouldn't say I rocked the mic, but the mic might tell you differently, and the crowd might as well, since they picked me as the winner. In a duel of derisive rhyming, I vanquished the following:
- Black kid who was WAY better than me
- Asian kid who was also WAY better than me, but screwed up
- Trevor, who is sort of like a Run DMC for the twenty-first century, only ripped as hell, white, and one dude instead of three
- Wade, the previous champion, fellow Anglo-American who bites all his rhymes from 8 mile
...and long story short, thanks to a couple humorous couplets about how so-and-so likes guys, I have a cool headband, and I wear it like Baumer, with the hair on the INSIDE.
And then last night we had an improv show, all in all probably our best one of the year. People gave us $136 for the effort, which we're donating to Operation Uplink. All this despite the fact that the lights were jerry-rigged and Kenzie physically had to PULL the plug from the wall every time we signaled for a black-out, leaving these long dark stretches between scenes while she fumbled to find the plug again. Oh, and some eigth-grader, who was apparently drunk off his ass, threw up in back in the middle of the show, although we had no idea someone had left a big pile of rum-smelling vomit in back 'till the end.
Then we went to Sonic. Pretty good day, all told.
Today, thanks to Instapundit and Jeff Jarvis and many, many other idols of mine, I got twenty times my usual amount of traffic. If you're wandering around in here as a result of their link providence, I won't beg you to stay. I'll just let this quote speak for itself:
If you read only one blog written by a high school senior who does theater, writes plays, has half-baked libertarian political ideals, invented rock and roll and would like to grow up to be James Lileks some day, make it this one!

I couldn't have said it better myself, if I hadn't just said it right there, using a hilarious alias.
Have a good weekend, kids. I plan to.
