I ran into her after sixth hour today and saw her sucking up to the principal. She gave me this look like, I'm the queen, I'm the boss, and you can't stop me. You talk to just about any one of the teachers, they'd have you believe she's a model student. She manages to talk her way out of detention just about every time, except the one time Kristy actually nailed her. I swear, one of these days...

That's What Friends Are For
I was walking down the hall when I caught Meredith teasing Hilary. "That outfit makes a fat girl look even fatter!" she shouted, without knowing I was in the area, and the other girls surrounding her broke out in laughter.
Hilary looked relieved that I'd shown up, and in the midst of their laughter, I said, "Apparently someone here didn't think that joke was funny."
"Oh, loosen up, Ms. Teacher's Pet. We were just having a little fun."
I was steaming mad but I didn't say anything. Instead I just walked to my next class and took Hilary with me.
Other than this, my life after the open house is still as hectic as ever. Between the social studies fair project I'm doing on bullying, and trying to plan a workable class play, the class field trip, and the school talent show, and writing for the newspaper, and putting together the yearbook, it's a wonder I haven't split into a hundred different pieces already.
As for Meredith, she's still got it in her mind that she is the only person who matters in the entire school. She is the most selfish person I've ever met. Her little followers don't get that Meredith is all about Meredith, that they're just accessories to her, that she wears them like she'd wear a pair of earrings or a necklace, she can take them off whenever she gets ready.
