I watched Cheerleader Nation this morning and really liked it! It's a reality show about the cheerleading squad at the high school that's been the national champion two years in a row. It follows not just the girls, but their moms (it is a Lifetime show).

I found these video diaries on the site, and people can leave comments on the pages. This one girl has a mental block when it comes to tumbling, and someone left what was meant to be an encouraging comment:
that poor girl... she should have confidence in the fact that she can do way more than most people five times her age. What she's accomplished is amazing!

... umm, because comparing herself to geriatrics is going to make her feel so much better.

An icon I made based on something tersa's friend said at a Wings/Sharks game:

Not one of my user icons because I have pretty low standards of officiating, so I'm never going to use it. :P Just thought what he said was funny.

I just realised my bra was twisted and unhooked it, untwisted it and hooked it back while in plain view in my cube. I have skillz!

*grin* I wonder if one day refs will wear special glasses that conceal a player's team.

Bahahahaha at the icon. :) I sent it to shofixti. :)

(Look, I'm overusing the Cheech icon today. I can't be stopped!)

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, that's him??? I never knew his LJ name, I was going to ask. Now I'm like, trying to merge the two separate slots I had in my head for the real person and LJ name together into one.

Cheech should be used lots!!! :D

I heard about Cheerleader Nation over at Pop Culture Junk Mail, and now I'm reading this book We've Got Spirit, which is all about cheerleading, and it's disgustingly interesting. I mean, when you consider that I realloy loathe cheerleaders.

Well, the really competitive cheerleading seems very different, basically its own sport.

Oh, I know that. Truly competitive cheerleaders =/= "cheerleaders" at my school. My school? Not so much with the competing in general, unless it's in soccer.

True story: The state competition was last weekend, and the cheerleaders went down to Springfield for it, and two cheerleaders who are failing two of their FOUR classes (and are therefore ineligible according to IHSA and the FREAKING SCHOOL), got to go anyway. During the musical, one of my techies was warned for being close to failing one of her seven classes and got kicked off for a week.

Double standards, thy name is high school.

It's like something straight out of Veronica Mars!

I know! My life is SO like a television show!
