Meh, I'm an A+ student, G.P.A is 4.0. I did that, fun, but it's kinda annoying. No life, just travel, and travel. After you've seen one part of Paris, you've seen it all, you don't need to roam more like the thing intends. You have to pay, but I got in through a scholarship. So, go for it, even though it IS kinda pricy.

Mebbe he just had got it and hadn't had time to tell you yet. Or perhaps he just forgot (my dad does that all the time). Just tell them you saw it and you want to go.

And hey, if you get to Normandy, you HAVE to pretend to be playing Medal Of Honor :P you might get thrown out, but it'll be fun as heck.

My dad got mine, and called me at school through my cell phone, good thing it was recess though. I went to Paris, London, Normandy, Rome and Spain. About Normandy, you can ONLY SEE the beach. You can't step foot on it. You gotta see it from some 'valley'.

I think Mirage is saying that the letter he found is a month old... not this post (it's dated today). :D

Double doh! Misunderstanding. It can both get you in trouble and embarass you.

Anyways, sounds like you have a serious conversation to be had with your dad. I don't know how you fell about this, but if it was me I'd be pissed.

Demon, arent you like twelve? And you had trouble understanding what a wire was. Sorry if I'm a skeptic for the 4.0.
