High School Musical....at my house?

Ok, so not really...but sort of.

Today I look outside and there are at least a bajillion teens and tweens dressed in all red and white, all making their way to East High School, mere blocks from my house. Girls are zooming by on bikes shrieking gleefully at one another, guys and all have popped collars and and ultra white K-Swiss shoes on, acknowledging one another with jerky head movements.

In my mind I am thinking, "What the? It can't be Monday, can it? *gasp* I've missed my lectures! My participation grade has been docked 1/17th! Wait...no..I went to church today...I don't understand..."

I then I find out....East High is where they film the ultra super hip High School Musical movies, the phenomena I totally do not understand. All these kids have been standing in line for hours and hours to be extras in yet another global sensation created by Disney starring impossibly beautiful and talented teenagers. Apparently, they have begun filming the third installment of the series, and I can observe all the glitz of Hollywood (in Utah) by simply stepping outside.


Like, if I were, like 13, I would like, so like be like freaking out right now!!

But I'm not. I'm nearly 25, and I get to go back inside my air conditionerless apartment and study Immanuel Kant for the next six hours.
