Silly Bandz and my rapidly depleting cool level

Not that I ever had a cool level in the first place but anyway

My topic of the day is Silly Bandz, I'm sure you have heard of them. Those little rubber bands that turn into the shapes of animals, letters and all kinds of other shapes. Well, I found this article:http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/17/nyregion/17toy.html
In this article it discusses how Silly bandz are all the rage in elementary school. I mean these things are bigger than Beanie Babies were and that my friends is saying something. In the article it also discusses how elementary schools are actually banning them because they cause a distraction. Now, I am currently wearing nine of them. And yesterday I certainly did conduct a trade of a flamingo for a bunny and a duck. And I thought I was wicked cool and that everyone who wasn't wearing any were behind the times.

I also have this quote from Katie McQuate: "I buy them everytime I see them. I don't wear them, I give them to my neice because I want her to be the cool kid in her class with them all the way up her arm."

This isn't going to get me to take off my silly bandz which are my only hope of ever being remotely cool, though. I just thought it was an interesting thought to discuss. That and I haven't posted for awhile.

Also, anyone want to give me some advice as to how I can set up a website. Is it possible to do that for free?
