This is turning out to be a good day...woke up at 430am, had a nice chat with a friend -- i enjoy getting to know someone, especially someone who likes Air Supply (hahahaha). i was told this morning that he reminds me of peppermint patty of the peanuts gang. i therefore made a little research...with my own comments..
Peppermint Patty is noted for her persistent habit of profoundly misunderstanding basic concepts and ideas that most people would consider obvious, leading to embarrassing situations. For instance, she probably is the only character in the strip who for a very long time did not recognize Snoopy as a dog, continuously referring to him as "the funny looking kid with the big nose".
--- okay Gen, Tet, Isa, Jerome, Kaye...or any friend of mine who's reading this: is this me?!?! Alright, maybe sometimes. And i get away with it with my cute looks and witty remarks... hahaha.
She is widely known for receiving a D− grade on every test or assignment in school (in 1999, the final full year of "Peanuts," her teacher presented her with a certificate naming her to the "D-Minus Hall of Fame") -- hmmm...not true, not true
Peppermint Patty's bad grades are possibly aided by her tendency to sleep through class.
-- hmmm...very true, very true (the sleeping, i mean)
Peppermint Patty lives with her father and enjoys a particularly close relationship with him, even though he apparently has to do a lot of travelling. He refers to his daughter as his "rare gem," a nickname with which Patty is extremely pleased. Her mother apparently died long ago, for Peppermint Patty has no memories of her.-- rare gem..i like that...and we both lost a parent!
Okay, okay. Enough of this. Now i'm actually comparing myself to a cartoon character...uh-oh. I'm sinking deep into depression...Hahaha. No worries. This too shall pass. Thanks Gen for the encouragement. =) Love you!
But I enjoyed writing this post. A rare gem, indeed!
