Dear Diary,

God, I hate my owner. Doesn’t everybody? I’m stuck down here every night with these freaks. I’m her newest—she should wear me the most! But no—she’s worn Rainbow Converse three times this week already, and me only once.

Rainbow. What an ostentatious name. All the Converse triplets are stuck up like that. Blue Plaid Converse thinks he’s so cool, but look at him: He’s falling apart at the seams, trailing pieces of rubber wherever he goes. He’s such a slob. And Yellow Criss-Cross isn’t much better. She has the weirdest hair. I don’t know why she thinks she’s gonna get worn more just because she looks like a complete freak. Guess what, Yellow Criss-Cross Converse, you still don’t get worn!

Honestly, I think she has her eye on one of the Vans brothers, Blackie. He’s so dark and brooding. I’ll admit that Yellow Criss-Cross does get worn, like, once every few months, but Blackie never has. He’s been here for over a year and a half now, and he’s never traveled farther than that corner under the bed. Nobody’s certain, but rumor has it he was bought a size too large.

Blackie might be good enough for Yellow Criss-Cross’s standards, but personally I think his brother Green Squares is way cuter. That little hole on his left side? So sexy. And the way he walks… God.

He’s been smiling at me a lot lately, and yesterday he told me he liked my new henna tattoo. He was so sweet and shy about it, too! I think he really might like me. It’s making Rainbow soooooooo jealous. Ha—I just can’t wait to see the look on her face when Green Squares asks me to prom later this year. It’s just gonna kill her.
