From a casting notice I read in Backstage this morning.
if you see this, I found your passport at the 28th street 1 subway stop tonight. E-mail me at apfrench2 at gmail.com! I’d really like for you to get it back, and I’d also really like to be able to say “Pay it forward.”
I HOPE YOU TWO GET MARRIED!!!!
Last night my brother called me up and asked for help coming up with a senior quote because I am “the comedian” of the family.
While I am somewhat entertaining now, in high school I kind of sucked. My senior quote was about how much I loved my friends and the drinking game Beirut. I wish I was kidding but unfortunately I am not.
It’s not that I wasn’t funny in high school, I was just afraid to be funny. I was scared that people would think I was weird or unattractive which really stinks. I held back certain aspects of my personality just to fit in.
That’s why I am so grateful that I am now part of a community where it’s ok to be weird, and nerds are cool. Instead of being scared to admit I love “Planet of the Apes” and “Soylent Green”, I now feel scared to admit I’ve never seen “Star Wars”. Unless you count the one with Natalie Portman… I know, I’m the worst.
So in a weird backwards sort of way, I guess I am still trying to fit in. But now, instead of wanting to fit in with the popular kids, I want to be a nerd. I guess this is what happens when it snows in October.
Oh, and just in case you were wondering, I gave him: “Help! I can’t feel my legs!” -FDR. Not my best work, but he wanted to do a Peter Griffin quote so that’s the audience I’m working with.
And also, the thought of his goof face picture about that quote made me laugh. Yeah, I’m pretty much the worst.
