Hello my friends. Man, it has been a dramatic week or so. Seems like everyone is having relationship drama (except me) and I have this sick desire to see everyone happy at all times, so it is emotionally draining! Better to butt out and stick to the business of plastic drama.
Ms. Figueroa addresses the class: "Who can tell me what countries are currently at war? Morgan?"
"Uh, my hand wasn't up."
"No, because they were too busy texting. You know the rules, bring it here."
"Sorry Ms. Figueroa."
"I'd rather not go through this every day Morgan. You can have it back after class."
"G'night Ms. Figueroa. Have a good weekend."
"You too, Raven."
"Daddy, what are you doing here? Sookie's giving me a ride."
"Hi sweetie. Just here to have a word with Ms. Figueroa."
"Oh, um, okay. Can I go to the record store after school?"
"Sure, just be home by 5 okay?"
"Of course Daddy."
"Sure, my car is in the shop, she's a good friend..."
"Who is she? She's breathtaking."
"Oh. Um. Yes, of course. I just." Marisol stammers.
"Well, want me to set you guys up?" she brightens.
"You would do that? I'd be so grateful to you."
"Sure, sure. I'll bring her by The Spot tonight, okay?"
"Thanks so much, Marisol."
The teens met up at Hot Wax and Heroes.
"Wow, if she's your new Mom, will she give you an A?"
Ian thinks, I'm so close I can almost touch her copper tresses. Poor kid.
Meanwhile, several hours later on the other side of Grandville:
"Wake up, my loves!"
"We're going out tonight! So get up and get dressed!"
"But Rai, I don't know if I'm ready yet."
"Nonsense, your bangs* have grown out, I bought you a new dress. No arguments. We're hitting the town tonight!"

Several hours earlier (What? Get back in the time machine.)
"Nikki, how much do you love me?"
"I love you enough to pick your ass up and drop you off every damn day until that car gets fixed. Ugh, this convertible is making my shit all frizzy today."
"I'm your real best friend, not Dani, right?"
"Marisol, what is this about? You're up to no good."
"Oh you'll see. You are gonna loooove me!"
"Nik, just make sure you wear something hot tonight. No cargo pants okay? You ain't shootin' photos in the damn Serengeti."
"I got a bad feeling about this..."
Ah, there we go, all caught up. Now for The Spot. [PS: Did I steal that from one of you? It just came to me which usually means I'm stealing. I'll rename if that's the name of your club!] Anyway, see I haven't created that club yet. My non goth/punk/weirdo folks need somewhere to hang out. The classy folks, the older set. I need to make a sort of "Shark Bar". Do they still have those? Anyway, thinking someone's living room might serve double duty.
So for the next week, I'm dressing up people and trying to get two bars together.
Oh and because I already took the photo of the happy new couple, get back in your time machine and go a few weeks into the future.
Opinions Wanted: The Hubs and I were debating about the favorite picture. One of us likes the background more in focus because it softens the features of the dolls. One of us likes the one with the couple more in focus because how many craps do I give about the background? (You can guess which one is my opinion.) Plus Nikki looks kinder in the bottom photo.
Which is your favorite?
Okay one more of Judah. I didn't realize what a looker he is:
