TransformWhat's wrong with me?
I glare at the claws my fingers somehow own, as if my anger could make them disappear. I roll my tounge around the sharpened canines. I'm about to give up guessing what I am. A vampire-werewolf? I think about it, searching my mind.
You're so pathetic! You know everything there is to know about myths, yet you don't know what you're somehow becoming? I think to myself. I think back to what might be transforming me. In the past week I've been bitten by a spider, scratched by a strange stray cat, and nearly swallowed by the circus elephant. A normal day. But then I realise-no, not normal. I may be no spidergirl, and I'm not turning into an elephant, so that must mean...
As if in response to my deduction a furry tail curls around to tickle my nose. I look in the mirror. The tail is mine. I have thin
the safest school everSchools. Heh. They don't allow knives, yet they allow scissors and cans. They 'don't allow' all unsafe things. Really. Look at this list.
Scissors: For stabbing.
Cans: For stabbing
Pencils: For stabbing
Pens: For stabbing
Wite-out: For poison
Glue: For poison
Plastic bags: For strangulation.
The list goes on and on. That is why they seperate us kids. The unnormals. At school there are bullies, and then there are bullies. I once went to a normal school. Well, as normal as a regulation school for the unnormals. Mixing us, the helpless unnormals, with the not-normals, the people with personality defects, turned out horribly.
Drew and Drew, twins with the same name but different gender, snuck up behind me. One of the Drews stuck a plastic bag over my mouth. I found it suddenly hard to breathe.

a complete guide to christmas A Cheapskate's Guide To Christmas
1. Go out and get a tree. it doesn't have to be big. preferably costing under five dollars.
2. Use the same tacky old ornaments from your grandparents that you use every year
3. Don't bother with lights. Pain and suffering, plus they tend to cost over three dollars for a huge package
4. Keep it last-minute. All the good stuff will be gone, and so will all the expensive things.
5. Of course, you can't forget gifts.
6. Get incredibly cheap gifts that you know everybody will love. Picture frames and personalized mugs tend to make people squeal for less than twenty bucks all together.
7. Instead of wrapping paper, use newspaper. If you don't get a newspaper because a quarter a month for the news is too darn much, then use leftover wrapping paper from gifts you have been given.
8. Label them with a cheap marker-no need for dollar s
Optimistic in a sea of despairThe people in my school-they never smile for real
It's almost as if they never learned to feel
Some say it's the lunches served of course
That fatty food makes them feel gross.
I think they may be robots
They seem never to have a happy thought.
But this circle of ours, not of life, of friends
Our happiness is a stream that never ends
And I above all, more than most,
Smile a lot, I don't mean to boast.
But where does my optimism come from?
As a baby did I fall into a nuclear drum?
That must be what others think-
But I don't care-who gives a frink?!
All I know is that happiness is like a cold
From one source, to others it flows.
