I have not been particularly prolific with the blogging because I am working on a top-secret Christmas gift that takes most of my computer’s resources. I’ll tell you about it after the 25th.
This has not stopped The Big M from being busy using his own computer’s resources, however, and tonight he discovered something alarming.
I’ll back up for a second. You may have noticed that this blog is more or less anonymous. I write that way because I like for Google searches to pop up information about me only from my professional career. I’ve been extremely glad that the Internet in its present form did not exist when I was in high school. God only knows what I would have put on there if it had. I said stupid enough things on the Prodigy forums that did exist at the time.
So what did The Big M discover? Apparently Google now has a way to search news archives. And my hometown newspaper has scanned articles from before the time of the Internet. From my high school days, to be precise.
I played basketball in high school. More accurately, I watched high school basketball from the comfort of a bench conveniently close to the sideline while wearing an itchy polyester uniform. I even lettered my junior year … because there were exactly five girls in my school who were decent at the sport and a sixth (me) who was willing to sub when needed (not frequently). So was this news article about my athletic glory?
Perhaps it was about my glory as prom queen?
Wrong! I spent prom night in San Antonio partying with my friends.
My glory as valedictorian?
Nope. Just missed the top ten percent cut, actually. My class was full of crazy-smart academic types.
Tired of guessing yet?
It was about my glory days as a sp*mumble mumble*.
I said, my glory days as a SPE*MUMBLE MUMBLE*!
As a *cough* spelling *fake sneeze* champ!
In honor of Google news, I present a new drawing:
Happy Thursday, everyone.
