Geek Gossip

Inspired by Rachel Renee Russell's Dork Diaries. Polly Oliver is not popular, in fact Polly Oliver is the opposite of popular; she's a total geek! But Polly's hoping that by moving to a new school she might just stand a chance of making some friends and leaving her old lame ways in the past. But life is never that simple...


4. Tuesday, September 3

It's way past midnight and I'm about to freak out because I still don't have my homework done. The work is for English and we're reading A Midsummer Night's Dream by Shakespeare. I was kind of surprised, because I didn't know he wrote teen chick lit. It's about a mischievous fairy named Puck who tries to break up a really cute couple lost in an enchanted forest. Then, this guy with a donkey head crashes a big, fairy party and hooks up with their queen. Pretty weird stuff! Our homework is to complete three essay questions about Puck: 1. Would you consider Puck the main character of the play? Why or why not? 2. How do Puck's personality and actions set the mood of the play? 3. Use your imagination and provide either a detailed physical description or a drawing of Puck. The first two questions weren't that hard and I finished them in no time at all. However, the third question threw me for a loop. I didn't have the slightest idea what Puck looked like. But I tried to imagine him with cute little pointy ears and AS HOT AS: Nick Jonas Corbin Bleu Justin Timberlake I was also dying to know if having a messed- up name like Puck had completely RUINED his life. I bet the popular kids at his school called him Puke, Schmuck, Yuck, or something worse. POOR PUCK!! I tried to go to that educational website Wiki- something-or-other that everyone craves to find a picture of Puck. But I couldn't remember the name of it and was too lazy to Google it. I was really surprised to hear a knock on my bedroom door this late at night and I assumed it was my six- year- old sister, Lauren. About a week ago she lost one of her front teeth and buried it in the garden to see if it would grow. She is FOREVER doing crazy- weird stuff like that. My mum says it's because she's still a little kid. But personally I think it's because she has the common sense of a box of crayons. As a little joke I told Lauren the tooth fairy collected teeth from children all over the world and then Super Glued them together to make dentures for old people. I explained that she was in BIG TROUBLE with the tooth fairy, seeing as she had dug a hole and buried her tooth somewhere out in the garden. The funniest part was that Lauren TOTALLY believed me. She actually dug up half of Mum's flower garden trying to find her tooth. Since then, Lauren has been paranoid that the tooth fairy is going to sneak into her room in the middle of the night and pull out ALL her teeth to make dentures. But my plan kind of backfired, because now she absolutely REFUSES to use the bathroom at night unless I first check to make sure the tooth fairy is not hiding behind the shower curtain or under the bath towels. And if I'm not quick enough Lauren will have a little accident right on my bedroom carpet. Unfortunately, I had to learn the hard way that ( contrary to the TV advert) Carpet Fresh DOES NOT remove all odours. Lucky for me it wasn't Lauren at my door, but my parents. Before I could say, Come in, they just kind of barged in, like they always do, which really irritated me, because this is supposed to be MY room! And as a British citizen, I have a right to PRIVACY which they keep invading. The next time my parents and Lauren come rollin' up in here, I'm gonna scream: "Hey! Why don't y'all just MOVE IN?!" Anyway, my parents said they were surprised to see that I was still up doing homework and they wanted to know how things were going at school. It was really strange, because just as I was about to answer, I had a total
