I know it's sad, but two Fridays have gone by without my naming a hero and villain of the week. I'm sorry about that, but I am bringing it back just in time to read while all of my East Coasters are preparing for Hurricane Irene.
Hero of the Week: Parties
Last week I went to my first slumber party in a long time. It was so much fun! We ate tacos and chocolate lava cake, and we played Mall Madness. That's right--Mall Madness, the board game the late 1980s. We all had a super fabulous time! Tomorrow I'm going to a tea party, and I have a new hat for the occasion. I'm having such a good time, I think there should be a party every weekend. Sure, I might run out of occasions, but I'm pretty creative. For example, I could throw a party for a full moon. It would be space themed, obviously, and everyone would dress like they lived on a different planet. I would want Mars because red it kinda my color. Anyway, for all of the fun I've had and the vast potential for future good times, parties are my hero of the week.
Villain of the Week: George
Hurricane Irene has pretty much taken over the news this week (except for Tuesday when the earthquake was a pretty big deal). I don't blame Irene; she's just following the example of treacherous storms before her. Hurricane George became the first named storm to hit the US in 1947. Consequently, I blame George. Not just the hurricane, mind you, but George in general. Throughout history, Georges have been disappointing, distracting, or destructive. Don't believe me? Take a look these Georges:
George Lazenby, "the forgotten Bond" starred as James Bond in one movie before Sean Connery reprised the role. (Disappointing)
George Willig scaled the World Trade Center and was arrested for trespassing. (Distracting)
George Armstrong Custer was responsible for the mistreatment and death of many Native Americans during the Indian Wars. (Destructive)
Curious George get a pass because he's adorable.
That's all for this week. I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend!
