April Fool’s Day…Fools…

So, today was the awesome April Fools Day. I wasn’t able to do much damage but in the future I do plan…to…yeah…

I was thinking last night about possible pranks. My scope of prank-ness only stretches so far as emails and texts, because there’s not much I can do physically on such short notice.

I’d wanted to get Carmaine but I couldn’t think of a prank that is awesome enough. But I figured out 2 good ones, one for Cathy and one for Dani.

I won’t share what I did to Cathy seeing as 1) she hasn’t responded yet (never checks her phone) and 2) it’s a bit personal. I did hit below the belt on that one.

The one I did to Dani, despite failing because Dani also doesn’t check her phone on time, was this:

I texted her last night asking if she was going to Period 1 as Madd- is away and we have a free. This was for 2 reasons. 1 was to ascertain around when she might be home and awake, and 2 was to set up my prank.

I texted her at 7:50, when I was still on the train, “Omg I’ve been knocking on your door for 5 minutes! Wtf does no one hear me?” and then I waited 2 minutes, during which she should have sufficient time to do a mad dash to her door, and texted “If you fell for that, Happy April Fools.”

She texted back in about 20 minutes telling me that she’d not checked her phone until much later, at 8. The upside was that she really did for a moment panic. The obvious downside was that she didn’t look stupid. Which, I must admit, was my relished goal.

I also texted April on a whim, saying that I’d “got bored last night and cut my own hair, and now I have a near bald spot.” She didn’t believe me. I suppose she’s extra aware on April the 1st.

Now, to make myself feel better, I must add that I did punk Dani before. I think it was around this time last month, Dani was in the city and I was rather bored at home. I texted her, “Where are you? At this very literal moment.”

She replied cheerfully, “At Price Attack on Swanston.”

“Thought so, turn around!”

Waited for about 30 seconds.

“Did you turn around?”


Ah, hey look, I do feel miles better.

2 years ago Eunice texted me (well, I suppose with our limited resources the best pranks are over texts) saying, and allow me to try to find the actual text:

“OMG! My mum just told me that we need to be out of our house in two weeks and that we’re going house-hunting today…in friggin Endeavour Hills. I don’t wanna move!!! ARGH!”

Then I, ever so stupid and gullible, replied (and pardon the swearing I am giving an exact recount except with not too many abbreviations):


I suppose she was the one who started my want to punk others on April Fools. Thanks, Eunice.

I’ve one more official day of school uniform left before I get to be in casual. I can’t wait.

Hope the holidays provide me with writing material. Oh and of course I haven’t forgotten my Summer Project which I suppose I should change the name to “Half-Arsed Project” or something to that effect.


Actually, from now on I’ll sign out as Alex.

Quick Update

Well, I realize that I have not updated in a long long (and what seems like a record amount of) time. It is marked by how many white numbers there are in the calendar on my site.

The reason for that was predominantly because I didn’t have much to blog about, and then at some point my net capped and it became frustrating to try to blog.

So, I will quickly catch up on what’s been happening in the past week.

Firstly, on Thursday it was the Athletics. It was, actually, my final school-organized sporting event, ever. And, I didn’t go. There were a few reasons, one of which being my laziness and want to sleep in. Oreads won (as I was informed by Vania later that day).

I had the Chinese, English and Eng Lang SAC I was talking about a week ago. They all went alright, even though in Eng Lang the topic was not what we expected, in English I may have gone off topic, and the Chinese listening SAC was the same as the previous year’s practise exam.

Net uncaps today but I haven’t been home…(well I have, but this morning doesn’t count) I will properly write up some notes of interest tonight, most likely. Dom has started a blog (well I don’t know, Dom, have you managed to set it up?) so I shall put that up on my blogroll for you to enjoy (provided he gives me permission to). I think there were a few errands I have to run on Facebook as well – mostly people buying my pets off me and stuff I haven’t replied to.

Madd- was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue, apparently, and will be away for the rest of the term. So all our Eng Lang classes have now been turned into study session (er, frees). I hope she gets better soon, for her benefit as well as our’s.

Take care, and I’ll hope to see you tonight.
