Because of my inability to validate over the last few days of the contest, any stories that were not validated but WERE submitted to be validated and were going to be a contest submission MAY STILL BE EMAILED. I'm going to validate everything right now, so anything that was in the validation queue as of tonight is still eligible for the contest.
On a non-twilight related note, if you live in or near Pennsylvania, and you happened to be watching the Pulaski Day Parade on ABC on Sunday, and you saw the marching band in all green and white.... I was in the front of that band! Just going to put that out there.
Now, back to the contest and my not-so-lame (for once) excuses for not validating.
1) From 5:30pm-10:00pm on Friday I was at a football game for colorguard.
I slept over a friend's house so she could drive me to the event the next day.
2) From 11:30am-10:30pm on Saturday I was at a marchingband competition that my school was hosting, and my entire school's marchingband and colorguard had to be there at 11:30 (even though the competition didn't start until 7:00) for practice. So we practiced from 11:30 to 5:15, had a dinner break, and then had to be back out in the stands by 7:00 in full uniform.
3) From 8:30am - 3:00pm on Sunday, I was at the parade with my school's marching band in Philly.
Then I had a pile of homework because, of course, I just had to be in pre-calc, physics, cultures, and lit honors.
Then these past few days I've been sick....
I feel like I've let you guys down, and I'm incredibly sorry for that.. :/ But I hope to make it up to you now!
