My dad left pictures of his old driver's license on the counter this morning. Much to my surprise, he had a fu manchu. For those of you who aren't aware, a fu manchu is a style of asian mustache popularized by the 1960s movie villian Fu Manchu.
I'd upload a photo, but it would be moderately awkward if he were to find me scanning a picture of his driver's license. "No dad, I'm not going to upload this on the internet!"
My sister tried to try out for cheer. Thankfully, parents have to approve this kind of stuff first, and they dutifully told her "no." I feel somewhat bad for her, because it's every adolscent female's dream, but thing would've gotten really ugly. Let me first say that I cannot believe the expenses for one godamn uniform. $110 for a sweater? $30 for socks? $100 for a skirt? $120 for shoes? Are they wearing gold or something? The grand total came to a whopping $1200, and that's only for the uniform. I read through all the cheer codes and terms of membership; the thing is monsterous. I'm surprised nobody's suffered from stress-induced ulcers. I'm relieved that this cheer nightmare has passed, now there's only the dance squad to contend with. And they don't exactly have the best of reputations either.
Do not try to bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you will see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
Wait, WHAT? I'm glad I didn't do that. I wanted to, being a typical little girl..

Lol I wanna see your dad's license! XD
"because it's every adolescent female's dream"
i so disagree with that. flipping and turning and blablabla on a $1200 uniform (which could rip and tear and blah) is not my type of dream. :)
They're for the girly girls with really flexible sexxay bodies. =)

i did a cheer camp thing in kindergarden... and realized that i dont have the kind of rhythm, flexibility, or coordination that one would need for that. it hasnt been my dream since then. at my school, pom squad is the big thing, and most girls dont even really care about cheerleading.
anyhow. that was a long comment.

Lol! I haven't seen anyone with that kind of a mustache before. Er.. I never dreamed nor wanted to be a cheerleader... And most cheerleaders are.. uh.. bitches?

cheer stuff can get expensive
with cost of uniform and camp, and blahblahstuff. it's crazy.
then again, most everything extra curricular costs money, and most of it quite a bit. but yeah.
Now I want to watch some Bruce Lee.

O.o that's a lot of money for a uniform.
and yes, tossing it in the air is a part of stretching out the dough for the pizza, but its much more involved than just tossing it in the air. That takes practice.

That was pretty nice of your school to give out that money. Wish they did that kinda stuff when I was in school, lol. I can't believe that uniform is that much. My parents would have said no too. I do feel bad for your sister though she probably wanted to cheer really bad. Is she pretty upset about it? Well, take care

I like one of the early movies when he had that long, almost to the shoulder, hair. It's nice that he does ( or used to do) his own stunts too.
Heheh. My favorite outake:
"He won't be in Rush Hour 3" ...or something like that...

Its a good thing she isn't a cheerleader. You'd have to start fighting football players who hit on her.
