I was just driving down my street, and the roads were choked with crowds of children going home for lunch - or so I assume. I live right between two elementary schools.

About halfway down the street, there's about ten children, all travelling en masse. They are mostly walking *in* the road. They are *blocking* the road. I slow down, try to honk at them, but my horn's not working. It's almost ten seconds before they seem to notice the engine noise, and turn to look at me. And then they stand there, staring at me, for another ten seconds, before they finally get the hint - they look at each other, and slowly move off the road, all the while I'm yelling at them, though of course they can't hear me, because my window's closed. "Move, children! What do you *think* I want you to do? Do a *dance* in the middle of the road? No! Get out of my way!"

Is it just me, or are little kids getting stupider? I mean, when I was that age, one did not walk in the middle of the road. It was considered to be dangerous, and therefore a no-no. I certainly did not *stand* in the road in front of a car, staring at it, basically daring the driver to mow me down into little child-cakes for the sheer stupidity of the expression on my face. Gah.

I'm at school. I got here more than half an hour early today, having given myself an hour and a half to get here and having only taken about three quarters of an hour. There seems to be no set standard of traffic. Damnit. There also seems to be no set Good Time for Parking. I mean, there *is* no Good Time for Parking at my school, there being seven hundred students and fourty-five parking spaces. However, there are Bad Times and Not So Bad Times. I don't know when these are, despite extensive research. Sometimes I show up in the morning and there's lots of parking, sometimes I get here half an hour early and drive around for twenty-five minutes looking for a spot, finding none, until my last sweep at eleven-twenty-five (for an eleven-thirty class) to find *one* car pulling out. Grar. Stupid parking. Today, anyway, there was lots of parking. Weird.

I am, however, bored. And a little stupid. I left my animation paper and all my key frame drawings at home. I do have my pencils and stuff, and my books, but it looks like I'll have to scam paper off Dustin and just fake it. Which really pisses me off, because I'd done almost all of my key frame drawings, and now the ones I do today won't match. And I can't skip the class and just... argh. Being such a long drive from home is annoying. It's like a day trip every time I come to school. I am just going to have to move.

Class in ten minutes. I should probably go.

I want chocolate. There is none to be had. o.O
