Saying ‘I notice you’re a nerd’ is like saying, ‘Hey, I notice that you’d rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you’d rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?’ In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even ‘lame’ is kind of lame. Saying ‘You’re lame’ is like saying ‘You walk with a limp.’ Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he’s done all right for himself.
This is to every single person that helped make this possible. I haven’t been able to announce it until tonight, but Tyler saw the video and the prom thing. He unfortunately can’t make it to prom because he is busy the weekend of, but he invited me tonight to meet him. It was everything I could imagine and more. He is the most charismatic, kind, gentle and funny guy you will ever come to meet. Thank you to the 2000+ who helped spread this around. It was unbelievably humbling to see so many people willing to help me. He filled in the blank bubble, and I will never ever forget this night. Thank you. If you have a dream, chase it… I didn’t want to let mine only remain a fantasy.
So great meeting you, things like this are the reason I do what I do. Have fun at Prom! Whoever you go with - a date or your friends - they’re lucky to have you!
