Squee Doesn't Even Begin To Cover It, Part II

BARACK OBAMA'S COMING TO MY HIGH SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I actually just found out about this today, as did everyone else in school. He's going to be hosting a town hall in our school's gymnasium tomorrow at 12:20. All the members of Strath Haven's senior class get to go, and the rest of the seats are going to various other people, basically whoever went to our Delco headquarters and got tickets. Oh my freakin' god I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited. I've been running around me house, jumping and screaming, all evening. I do feel bad for the underclassmen, but I understand the Obama camps decision in only having the seniors there, there are lots of good reasons for that. Plus, Chris, my favorite underclassmen, and an Obama supporter, gets to go because he's singing with the Silvertones. I do feel really bad for Mrs. Shapiro, because she can't go, and apparently she was about on the verge of tears this afternoon. 

Our principal had a meeting for us this afternoon to tell us how to dress and behave and whatnot. I'm kind of bummed because they'll be taking attendance, so a lot of seniors who don't care will come, and wish they wouldn't. Also, we're not allowed to bring posters, which makes me sad. I've been trying to think of a question to ask, but I'm coming up with nothing. Still, its a long shot that I'd even have a chance to ask. I'm hoping that I'll maybe to get to shake his hand though. There should only be about 1500 people, so with some good determined pushing, it'll maybe happen. If nothing else, I'll take pictures.

OMG I'm sooooooooooooooooooo excited. Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
