paging john hughes!

Is it just me, or is the New York City media landscape starting to resemble a maze of locker-lined hallways smelling of pubescent body odor? Prom Queen befriends uglier, funnier smart kid to get free homework help. Funny smart kid talks behind Prom Queen's back, because Prom Queen and her friends are the laughing stalk of the nerd contingent. Prom Queen ditches smart kid, while smart kid kicks self for losing popular kid perks and nerds wage war on the popular kids. The popular kids, of course, are smug and don't give a darn, because they'll stay popular no matter what. (Meanwhile, I sit in the back silently observing and hunched over my desk playing the "try not to stab your fingers with the pocketknife" game.)
