A lot has happened in the last few days, though most of it has been good, or at least interesting.

First, Dr. House let us off the hook. Hooray for not being a guinea pig for gremlin bodily fluids.

I braved Angelus' candidate forums on Thursday. I thought a lot of it was pretty boring (nice surprise), but Rory and Marty seemed to do well. Oh, and I kind of yelled at Maia over the "Parker's Pets" thing. I can understand why people don't like Parker -- I didn't like her myself for the first couple weeks we were here, and it seems like every time I listen to her ideas, something goes wrong -- but it still seemed like a slam at some people who really hadn't done anything.

Maia swears she didn't mean it that way. I feel kind of sorry for her, it sounds like she's just overwhelmed by a lot of things. Apparently she's dating Ms. Sidle and was upset because Sidle hurt herself.

The one good thing to come out of it was that I got to talk to that guy Anakin, with the Kajagoogoo refugee haircut. He is surprisingly cool for a member of JA, and can move things with his mind, like Paige. He's starting a "Deep Thoughts" club. I'm not sure if it's a joke or what, but I signed up anyhow. I've been all social here, and it would be nice to have people to be antisocial with.

For Homecoming, Rory and Logan and Marty and I went to dinner at The Old Firm. It was worse than cafeteria food. You know a restaurant is creepy when you find yourself claiming to be vegetarians and ordering green salads with dressing on the side, just because you don't want to think about they might serve you as meat.

At homecoming, we hung out with L. & R. for a while. It got a little tense because ... well, there was tequila, and Angelus' name came up, and I got kind of emotional. Rory says she doesn't think Logan will hold it against me.

I just hope Angelus isn't going to start gunning for either of them.

Anyhow, so -- tension. Then M. and I danced for a while. We saw George Lass crying -- I hope it wasn't over the Homecoming Queen thing, because that would make it kind of Marty's fault. (I voted for her.) We decided to go home after that and ... it was very very nice.

Yesterday I visited M. in Phale's shop. Sounds like we're both finding out some things on the Angelus front. The only question is how (or if) to use them. I think we need a witch at this point.

Hung out with Cally, Janet and Rory in the common room last night. Poor Rory -- it sounds like Logan has his own past to deal with.

If nothing else, I am truly sympathetic.

[OOC: Written while Angela waits for Marty to wake up at the clinic. Private entry.]

I think every day here is weird, but this one truly deserves the label, even after the flowers.

For starters? I had lunch with Phoebe., whose recent problems kind of make mine look like nothing. We fantasized about an island without boys, but with plenty of wine, chocolate and cats.

Then Marty took me to the shooting range.

Then I accidentally shot him in the butt and had to take him to the clinic. My first time with a gun, and I manage to put someone in the clinic. I'm not sure there will be a second time.

Then -- while heavily drugged and having shrapnel scraped out of his butt -- he asked me to homecoming. This wasn't, like, my romantic fantasy, but it does seem to be how things work for us.

I said yes, but I'm not sure he heard me. Too busy passing out.

Then I somehow got roped into helping with Homecoming. I have no idea what's going on, there, but Lilly is strangely persuasive...

Hey, to whoever sent me roses ... thank you for them and the lovely poem. It's absolutely perfect.

Though I am moderately freaked out by the unsigned card, since Marty says they aren't from him.

Does my secret admirer want to, like, come forward? Any theories?

Edit: They're from [ profile] geoff_chaucer. Who, I hear, is available for commissioned poems at reasonable rates for homecoming.

There are some really scary people here.

I'm still not sure what her problem is -- I mean, other than the "someone just told the whole school she had an STD" thing. Whatever. I wasn't even really doing anything and she, like, attacks me.

And what's with her not having a first name, anyhow? I bet it's, like, Myrtle. Or Moonbeam.

Also, I have no idea what's up with the guys here. I was talking to Marty during study hall and I thought we made plans for after school.

Thought. Silly me.

When I showed up at his dorm room, he shoved past me and ran off.

I feel like I took a bath in People Repellant today.

So despite my angst, everything worked out last night. I hung out and talked about boys with Paige for a while. (She is definitey another Rayanne, by the way, but I need a little trouble in my life.) She's kind of dating this guy Draco. I don't really know him yet; he's not quite my type, but he's very hot, very arrogant, and very British, and some people think he had something to do with the squid incident. (Paige says not to believe them, and I believe Paige.)

Later on, this guy Wallace joined us, and then we hooked up with a big group -- I remember Veronica and Rory, this girl Summer, and a bunch of other people from our dorm, and I think Sydney showed up when we were almost done eating -- and went to get Chinese food. I had hot and sour soup and shrimp lo mein; it was killer good, even though I was almost falling asleep by the time we finished.

It's interesting to go to a school with so many people from such different backgrounds. It makes being normal seem ... abnormal. But then, maybe being "normal" has always been more rare than being "abnormal," and I've just never noticed before? I need to think about this more.

Speaking of normal and abnormal ... Krakow withdrew. I'm not sure what happened; I only saw him long enough to say goodbye. As bizarre as it was to find him here, it will be even more bizarre to have absolutely no one I know around.

Also -- I got the job at Championship Vinyl. My parents will be happy, and it seems like quite the cool work environment. I start next Friday. I'm nervous, but it should be cool.

I think I'm going to head over to a party at this guy Logan's place in a little bit. Veronica knows him, and it sounds like there's a story there that I don't want to ask her for. But a party is a party, and hooray for parties.

Day two.

Today my only real class was Geology. My lab partner is this girl named Phoebe
([ profile] future_visions). She's really pretty and seems cool. I've met a few other cool girls ... yesterday I had lunch with [ profile] rory__gilmore. She seems scary smart but nice. And in study hall I was hanging out with Paige ([ profile] the4thsister), who is a little like Rayanne only with this lollypop fixation. This guy [ profile] jayne_serenity (I have no idea what's up with a guy named Jayne) asked us to come over to his place for a drink. Can't decide if I should go or not... I think I will. It's not like I can't take care of myself.
