Fact: Nerds Scare Small Children

I've been counseling at a kids' day camp for the past week. I bring home $1.00 an hour and a throbbing headache.

I don't get along well with the wee ones, which is especially painful because my father is notorious for being loved by younger kids. I'm not sure if I frighten them, disgust them, or if I'm just uninteresting to them--about as worthy of their curiosity as the lady bug that had just landed on my knee.

For every 20 kids there who dislike me, there's just one that's totally obsessed with me...which is sad, because there are only like 45 kids at the camp. Worst of all, we're graded by the head counselors at the end of the week. I try. I really do. But it's hard to ignore the terrified looks on the kids' faces after I ask them about their day.

That's enough about that. It really is. I'm throttling my self-esteem just thinking about it.

Please, please, please, please, PLEASE, PLEASE check out the post before this one about Sarah Silverman. She, like Jerry Seinfeld, is a comedy machine. She is consistently funny and exhales quality jokes like they're air. Silverman is brilliant.

Also--can't resist this one--here's my favorite clip from the movie Juno. I also love what Su-Chin is chanting. "All babies want to get borned. All babies want to get borned."

On yet another totally unrelated note, I just finished the movie 500 Days of Summer for my second time in two days. I'm not even going to begin to talk about how much I loved that movie, because I really know I wouldn't be able to stop.

But still, if you haven't seen the movie, SEE THE MOVIE. It's easily the best romantic comedies I've ever seen, and arguably one of my favorite movies of all time. I loved it, despite the fact that it is a romantic comedy.

Plus, Zooey Deschanel! HOT! She's up there on the list with Amy Adams and Keira Knightley.

Better go now. Thanks for reading!

4 people secretly have a crush on me:

Little kids are afraid of me too. They point at me and yell for mommy. It's so adorable how they then say that I'm like Vanessa from Kim Possible with Ariel's hair. Just cute.

And hey, as long as bird is the word, you watch family guy? Right? Right? RIIGHT?

That Blond Guy said...

Ha ha...great, you can empathize.

Embarrassingly, yes, I watch Family Guy. Are you a fan or a hater? I can empathize with both.

P.S. Have you deleted your blog?

Little kids love to boss me around. Take most teenage boys who've met me, and they're a bit intimidated. But the young ones, especially girls, oh gooooodness they're slave drivers.

I have never seen either of those movies, although I have wanted to see Juno for a while.

Little kids usually enjoy my random spontaneity, and babies look at my face and laugh... I've yet to decide if that's good or bad. The way to win kid's hearts is to be random, but with things they understand. It works for me *shrug*

Still have yet to see 500 days of summer... and I love romantic comedies. Plus one for the mile long list I have to watch with my friend on his netflix.
