I’m done with meth!!

Ah I love having suggestive puns in my titles.

No, I am not a meth-head. I am merely finished with all my Methods SACs forever. And I didn’t find it too hard which was pleasing. But I’m going to be a humble bumble bee and stop at: I did well.

I also had a really fun lunchtime. We were just sitting around, me eating a lovely passionfruit yoghurt and wedges that actually had potatoes in them. We were just joking around and I recounted this old blonde joke.

Three people, a brunette, a red-head and a blonde, were running away from a guy, and they hid in three separate sacks.

The guy caught up to them and saw the sacks. To make sure, he kicked the first sack which had the brunette. The brunette said, “miaow!” So the guy thought, right that’s a cat, and walked on. He kicked the sack with the red-head.

“Woof!” cried the brunette. Right, thought the guy, a dog.

He then went to the sack with the blonde and kicked it. The blonde, seeing what was done before, knew exactly what to say.

“Potatoes.”

Tiff laughed, then hauled ass for the bathroom. I was concerned.

Later, in class. We all got into a Glee frenzy. ‘Nuff said.

Bee was very stressed about Methods and I tried to cheer her up. I don’t think I did well.

At the bus stop I made the noob mistake of standing at the wrong stop. I stood there for ten minutes trying to look cool and had to walk to the next stop as my bus pulled ahead.

Tomorrow I celebrate my last SAC ever. Legal.

It has been a good day.

P.S. I spent period 2 with Julia in the library playing on the iTouch. That was good too.

I had Oral…Exam

You’re right, Dom, that joke never gets old.

Yes! Yes! I have done and dusted my Chinese oral…exam forever and ever and ever! Never again would I have to describe myself in 20 seconds or less, or recite the 3 points of my detailed studies.

The sad part is, while doing my detailed studies, I’d said that I had 4 main points. I had to backpedal quickly and say 3.

To be short, the oral…exam was semi-epic-fail. The general conversation was good, despite my two male examiners (MALE! BOTH OF THEM! Female ones smile more) starting me off with “how did you get here?” and I just sat there desperately trying to remember how to say “train” in Chinese, I was that nervous.

The det. stud. was a bit worse. I really forgot a lot of my info half way through and started stuttering (I guess that problem would resurface sooner or later when I’m nervous) so I had to make stuff up. The downside of getting male examiners and me doing a rather masculine topic is that they actually had a general understanding of my topic, and knew when I was bullshitting (as opposed to when I had females for mock exam, and they thought I was very well researched. Baha). In fact the younger male examiner had the expression of “bullshit bullshit” on his face in the last 3 minutes.

I just hope they give me marks for repair strategies and ability to maintain conversation, and not mark me down for contents. Haha.

Fa had dyed her hair brown! I haven’t seen her like that in a while, and I just felt it would be great injustice not to suggest that she keep that hair color forever. Hey Fa, I really think that brown suits you more and makes you look more elegant than orange/blonde. She also wore a “conservative” outfit, namely jeans and a baggy jumper (which she borrowed off her mom. I doubted it was hers anyway).

I’ve never really been nervous much before, I’ve been excited and nervous yet but not just nervous. I actually felt myself shaking a bit waiting outside the classroom, and Lyd- who was with me tried to calm me down by telling me my hair looked good.

It worked.

Well, it was all said, and done, and dusted, and blown away, and I did a little dance afterwards. Now, onto Methods and Legal! Then it will be 3 weeks until my English exam.

1 down, 6 to go!

Last Day Of The Last

Remember my post First Day Of The Last?

I can’t believe that I’m now writing last day of the last.

Today is the last day of the last “school holidays” I’ll ever have. After this, holidays are just merely…holidays. No more 2 weeks of every 10 weeks. Pity.

I have been 70% successful in my venture to study and do homework. I have also been 90% successful in resting, sleeping in and watching NCIS on my computer and all those other shows online.

So, holidays well spent, in my opinion.

After this is what really counts. Exams, studying, preparation, and then I can rest.

So there you have it. Last day of the last.

Take care, everyone about to head off into exams. Take care of yourself, and take care to not fuck up (joooookes).

Good luck, too, of course.

Alex.

When you REALLY need to elaborate…

This is an anonymous conversation I overheard somewhere. I swear:

Girl 1: Wanna hear something you don’t care about?

Girl 2: Sure.

Girl 1: I got new underwear today.

Girl 2: Cool. My daddy usually buys my underwear.

Girl 1: …Ah…

Girl 2: He used to work at Holeproof underwear and socks factory.

Girl 1: Oh. Oh okay that’s less creepy.

Me: 1 Telemarketer: 0

I’ve been posting this anywhere I can, since I can.

So far I’ve Twat about it, and Facebook status-ed it as well. The next logical step is of course here.

Anyway, so just then, about five minutes ago, I got a call from a telemarketer. I may have to make up some of the dialogue since I can’t remember it all, it wasn’t important enough.

T(elemarketer): Hello, I’m calling from [some company name] how are you today?

A(lex): Busy?

T: …I apologize ma’am. But I am just calling to inform you about a special offer we have…[goes on for ages].

A: …

T: [slight pause] So the offer is limited, and only…[so forth so forth].

A: …

T: [pause] Hello?

A: … [music plays audibly in the background]

T: Hellooooooooooo? Helloooooooooo? Are you there? Hello?

A: …

T: [hangs up]

A: [sniggers]

That’s right, bitch. Try calling again.
