Woohoo Yes Clapclap

So here's how Shannon ended her lunchtime speech in the caf nine days ago: "Kids ... w/ .... special needs R ... ppl ... 2! ...We ... have a ... lot ... 2 ... offer! Get ... 2 know ... us! ...Don't tease ... us!" Ppl stared, entranced. Then, she wrapped up w/"PLS! E..NUF.. IS .. E..NUF!" There was this moment of complete silence w/every1 lookin' @ ea other gobsmacked. Then, every1 started clapping and letting out cheers like "WOOHOO!!" and "Yah" and "Yesss!"

In other news, I got a strange call from 1980s cinema, asking that we return its teen comedies.

    April, I roomed with Candace Halloran and your sister Elizabeth during university. After graduation, I returned to my native Mexico. Fortunately, I do not live in a touristy town, and therefore I have not encountered your parents on any of their very many Mexican vacations.

    As you mentioned recently, there was a time, during our second year of university (2000-2001 academic year) when the very powerful Witch of Corbeil changed the birth years for our entire class, and extended our time there from four years to five.

    Recently, I am applying to graduate schools, because I am wishing to be a psychologist one day. Some of these graduate programs, they want to know why I spent five years completing a four-year degree. And why my age, it seemingly changed in the wrong direction. Because I have never been clear on these reasons, I wrote to the Witch in Corbeil to ask her to clarify for me.

    I was very surpised by her response, April. She is writing to me: "Congratulations! You are the only one to solve the 'intentionally puzzling date game'! Send us a mailing address and we'll send you an envelope of real Northern Canadian AIR!!! This healthy and unique gift will undoubtedly be the talk of the town. All the best, Lynn."

    I do not know how an envelope full of air will help me explain my transcript irregularities to the graduate programs.

    April, your sister did not tell me that she formerly roomed with a fiery Latina from Mexico! Anita, I play keyboards in April's band. May I introduce you to my amor?

    Luis, that is very kind of you, but I am engaged to a lovely man named Carlos.
