Welcome To The..
7th FUNKY NEWS® Newsletter!
How are you doing? Sorry it's been so long. (2 weeks or so) since you got the newsletter. We
have many new members this time around, I'm not sure how we got them (where'd you here about
our club, new members?) But, the more the merrier! Here we go! Enjoy!
With Seri Bruin
Hi. My name is "Kally". I'm 14 years old. Well this may sound really gross, especially
to guys if there are any in this club, but, I'm worried. I haven't started my period
yet, and I'm in 9th grade! This is really weird. I mean, Last year and in grade 7 it
would have been Okay, I was just a late starter, but now, highschool! What's wrong with me?
It's not wrong that you aren't having your period yet. All girls have an
"internal clock". Some people start when they're 9, others have to wait until
they're 16! I didn't start until I was 13,(I'm 16) don't worry. Don't be
anxious to start, it's a pain in the but, literally.
Send your problems to me to give to Seri at: Kriggles@cyberjunkie.com

One day, my friends and one of my friends older sister and I decided to paper
this guy we know (and hate)'s house. Well, we were done, but are car wouldn't
start! His dad came out and asked us if we had car troubles. He actually gave
us a boost, and we drove away like, as fast as we could. Then he turned around
to go back into his house and saw it! I'm glad we were already in the car and
down the block!

Once again, Here is my movie review! Mail your survey answers,
questions, comments, or anything else that you want to send to
email@example.com . Also, feel free to anytime mail me your favorite
movie title. So far, most people say that their favorite is the Star
Here is some hot (and not so hot) new movies:
JERRY MAGUIRE- The movie of the year! More ticket sales than Independance
BEAVIS & BUTTHEAD do America- I'm sorry those who do, but these 2 aren't
ONE FINE DAY- George Clooney is hit in this movie but I'm not so sure he
will be in Batman. (The age, the height, take your pick) ****1/2
MICHAEL- First of all, I'd like to say, never has a John Travolta movie failed
from "Grease" and "Saturday Night Fever" to "Pulp Fiction" and
"Phenomenon." The incorporation of a laid back character and dancing in
all of his movies make the box office hits.*****
SCREAM- Neve Campbell is wonderful in this film that will garuntee you
THE EVENING STAR- This movie is bad. The sequel of "Tears of
Endearment," it tries to use all the things that made that movie a hit
and doubling them in this film. For instance, the death in "Terms of
Endearment" was really well acted. There are 3 not well acted deaths in
EVITA- Madonna might win an Oscar for the role she plays here. It is
very, very, very well acted.*****
Everyone has been asking, "What is Leonardo de' Caprio's new
movie going to be?" One hit movie and he's a star! (Romeo + Juliet was
da' bomb!) Well, his new movie is going to be called "Marvin's Room" with
him, Diane Keaton and Maryl Street. For more about it, mail me(option below)!

What's your favorite Disney Character? Tigger, Piglet, EEyore,
Spot (from 101 Dalmations) Mickey,My favourite Disney Character
is Tweety Bird ! Used to be nicknamed that last time by this
ultra-irritating boy in my old school , but I honestly think
Tweety Bird is really cute , especially when he says , "I thawt I thaw a
puddy tat ."

From the Desk of the Asst. Vice-Pres:
PLEASE READ , I'LL BEG!
Hi everybody !
I know I haven't been the most contributive member or anything or that I have
not been contributing much for a very long time and that some people may
deserve this job more than I do , but Krissy has really been a great
president and she's really very understanding . Anyway , last year has been a
great year for everybody with ups and downs everywhere . 1997 is finally here
and this sure looks like a promising year .
For one , Funky News is undergoing a lot of changes to welcome the new year ,
from a new vice-president , to new points system , to new columns . Anyway ,
what are your new year resolutions ? Have you broken any yet ? :}
Many people have been starting up new clubs and many of us have probably
joined them too , but hey ! Funky News will always be one club that I'll
never forget and many of you here probably think the same way . Krissy's put
in a lot of effort in the newsletters and it can be seen from the pretty good
quality produced . The information is readable , captivating , original and
interesting . It's sure a great club . Of course , as I always say , the
members of the club make a club where it is .
All the best for 1997 ! Some tips -
1. Don't let anything get you down :>} .
2. Count to 20 before you blow your top if 10 didn't work .
3. Forget about 1996 and forge on into the new year . Smile and try to think
4. Never ever ignore your friends' feelings . You'll regret it .
5. All work and no play makes YOU a dull boy Or YOU a dull girl .
6. Repair broken friendships . No good to start a year with one spoilt .
7. Relax , enjoy and SMILE - you'll probably look physically more appealing
that way !
That's all for me for now ! Bye .
In the winter to have a tan look try some dark, but not to dark foundation
and you can also put some blush lightly on your nose or your forhead in
the summer to look like you have a slight sunburn.
