Jewel: “Hello, I am the guitarist in the band the Troublemakers. I like to goof around and all my bandmates call me Jewel, Jewelybug, and Gummy Bear Pants. I enjoy playing the guitar. I have been playing the Guitar since I was 2 years old and I really like music. If I am not playing my guitar I enjoy ice skating, basketball etc. I like playing my guitar, making new friends, songs and I like playing in an AWESOME BAND!!”

 

Merav: “Hi. I am this year’s new member to the band and i play the piano. I am, as my friends would say, a storyomaniack and my band name is Dangerous Pie (which is from a book). I like to write funny songs and sing them. Band is one of my favorite activities, even more than silks, and I like that a lot.”

 

Ellie: “Ok,  the first thing I want to say is Merav spelled story-maniac wrong!!!!!! Ok, so I’m a spelling freak, whatever. Instrument, everything (except guitar. that’s Jewel’s). I like donuts. And papaya. And cheese. Actually, that’s my band name. Donut-papaya-cheese. Laugh if you want. that’s what they call me. So…. Yeah. The end.”

 

Merav: “...me again. and i just want the point out that since i invented the word storyomaniack, i get to choose how to spell it. so there.”

 

Ellie: “Yeah, but mine is right. Yours is underlined in red!!!!!!”

 

Merav: “I invented it. I spelled it. Otherwise i’ll start saying you’re Renee Albert with her skirt.”                     

 

Elise: “uh…………”
