While you were away…

Today April was away sick so she asked me to write down notes for her. I got lazy and decided to kill two birds with one blog.

Dear April,

[insert inappropriate and personal jokes here…you know what I mean]

It was really cold when we walked to school today. It was rather windy at the crosslights near the cafe’s and standing there was a pain. I had a free first period and I sat next to Vania in the library. But would you believe? Ayo- came to visit today, decked out in her Wesley uniform. She stuck out so much, because she was so purple!

In Period 2 I had VisCom, and I finished making the model of the retarded chair I designed. It is a pity, because today’s lunchtime was the last lunchtime you could go see the art festival things. So you missed out on seeing them. Unless you went before? I don’t know…

In Period 3 was the lovely Japanese. We had tango (yes we still keep going. We still. Keep. Fucking. Going.) and I copied off Nay- so s’all good. Then we had…detailed studies. So I don’t know what you’re going to do. I don’t know what he went through exactly probably just refining script and ideas and so forth. Well anyway the HIGHLIGHT is actually while everyone was doing their detailed studies I went to the front of the class and I started drawing some ideas for our T-shirt design. Nay- and I have sort of agreed on one design so we’ll need to pitch it to the class. It just says “I AM” on the front, and on the back you have your own name large, and then the class list underneath, and 2006 – 2009 under that.

After that we had recess. I brought Sonam’s cake, but forgot the knife! Well noone told me. And serviettes too. So it was lucky that Bel the gun had serviettes in her locker from another party, and I borrowed a knife from the staffroom. Not before sounding rather homicidal as I ran around the school muttering to myself, “I need a knife I need a knife I need a knife.” We cut up and served the cakes. It was yummy. Sonam opened her pressies (photo frame and Borders voucher but you would know that) and I ate some of Jen N’s cookies.

Now, I don’t know if you knew about this, but originally they were going to cancel the last House assemblies in place of singing rehearsals. Well, the House captains were totally pissed because it IS the last assembly, so there was this secret revolt thing going around where everyone has decided to boycott rehearsals and just up and leave when General Assembly is over. Unfortunately – I say unfortunately because the revolt would probably be the most exciting thing this year, and maybe even go down in MacRob’s “Underworld” History – the teachers must’ve caught wind of this, because in Period 1 we received message that singing rehearsals will be moved to after recess, and there will be no Form. Yr 9’s and 10’s get an extra 10 minutes of recess. So, in the end we had all 3 events.

In Oreads, we watched the House awards get handed out, and we watched as this year’s captains handed the baton to Rish- and Jam. (Ha Rish. I still have to tell Bee. It’s still funny.) I don’t know what happened in Nereids. Annie was in our House assembly, and it took me a whole 5 minutes before I said, “Hey you’re not in Oreads!” Goes to show my House spirit eh. Bee sat with me. I think Carmaine and Eunice went to their own Houses for once.

At lunch, it was a really short lunch too, felt like, we sat around, Julia, Vania, Sonam, Tiffany, Annie and I. We talked, and bell rang. It was boring.

We had English, and we went over how to analyze pictures. Everyone was so half-assed! Sonam and I, without your wonderful guidance, managed to completely misinterpret one picture. I got the 2nd one right! I took some sheets for you, by the by. Tomorrow we’ll be talking about Point Of View. And then we’re on our own. Screwed!

Then I had double Legal. Well. We watched “America’s Hardest Prisons” and Mr G brought chocolates and as I said in the text, Carmaine had 4 and started being rather high. I gave her a shoulder massage which apparently wasn’t bad, so I will actually research how to give proper ones now that will kick ass! Well I have to. Did I mention to you about the booklet to Bee? I wanted to give her something sweet and cute, so I made one of those crappy coupon booklets with “good for one hug” sort of thing. In it I included “good for one shoulder massage” so I actually should learn how to do it.

On the way back home I sat with Bee and Nat. We talked about those WorkSafe ads, and just Yr 12 in general (at least I think I did. I can’t for the life of me remember exactly what we talked about).

Dani wasn’t at school today. Nor was D.P. Bo-, D.P. and anyone doing 2nd Language Chinese had their orals today.

Oh final notes!

We had the English competition results in. I can’t believe it, but you didn’t win the prize! I was totally set on getting up there in your place and saying “April couldn’t be here today…” but I’m pretty certain you got a HD. GEE! GEE GOT A PRIZE! Bee was so sooking because “maths and science are Gee’s thing! ENGLISH IS MY THING!”

I don’t know what I got for my writing. I definitely didn’t get an award because there were no award winners. But fingers crossed for HD yeah?

Finally, you were lucky not to have been there during singing, because Endearing Brute was in a foul mood, and she made the microphone shriek so loud everyone cringed. Oh and I sat next to Tif- who had no idea what the words were in the medley. Bel won a medal for Chess and Mr Webber pronounced Carmaine’s name as “Carmen Een”. I laughed. Clearly.

De Fluffe, Out.

So I says to him I says…

I am sitting in my Eng Lang class, and And- did’t show up, so we’re just sitting here with a sub who won’t let us leave. Yet.

Carmaine and Eunice are in the next classroom, in English. It’s such a lazy and bright day.

I hate that summer is creeping up. I hate the warm weather. Mostly I hate sweating. And I do a LOT of that.

Yesterday on the train we started discussing New Year’s. Carmaine will be on a cruise from 18th of Dec to just before New Year’s, so she’ll be away for Christmas (unfortunately) but she’ll be back for 2009. I really don’t want to have to spend another NYE with my parents pushing me to go to bed, and then finally sitting there in the most unenthusiastic countdown you can imagine, and then going to bed after a few minutes of the fireworks.

I want to be in the city, or at a party, or somewhere where everyone else is excited! And then we count down from 10, and it feels like we’ve achieved something when New Year’s comes.

While it goes without saying that my parents most likely wouldn’t let me sleep over at anyone’s place NYE (original rule PLUS the whole “spend time with your family” crap they spine every year) I stll think it would be pretty dandy to count down to the new year with BRuCE. While Bee and I were pretty interested in booking a hotel room for that one night, and then going to the city for the big countdown, Carmaine was a bit more iffy, saying that the city is full of drunks and idiots on that night. Fair enough, but it’s the spirit. But anyway, it would be really expensive so for now we’re just dreamin’.

Speaking of the family crap I was talking about…

Sometimes I wish I can just shut myself up, or go back a few seconds and literally CLAMP MY MOUTH SHUT because sometimes I say the most insensitive things. I was just saying how I can’t stand another NY with my parents, Bee said quietly, “well I don’t think I will do anything with you guys on NYE because I want to spend it with my dad.” And that moment I wish I can just cut my own tongue out because I was just idiotic. Or when I complain about my mom to April, I think aboutit afterwards and honestly I am an ASSHOLE.

Happier topic…

Today I had a double free and I forgot to bring my DS so while in the first period I did Japanese homework (read: copied it off April) I didn’t have ANYTHING to do 2nd period. It was quite sad. Without my DS, who am I?

April was quite gleeful at my downfall.

Carmaine gave me a really really really tight hug today; I think I have bruising on my ribs. But but, of course as always it was well worth it.

Carmaine and I asked Bee what the Cold War was. For ages Bee thought we were joking, but, honestly, neither of us knew what the Cold War is. Apparently, it was Russia v USA in nuclear or something war, and it was “cold” because neither party were near each other.

I might write a bit more later when I get home. School blocks funnyjunk.com so I will post up some funny pictures when I can get to them. Besides, there’s a whole train ride during which something can happen that’ll make me wanna write about.

As a final note: Today I didn’t see Dani at all. Thursdays she has a double free at the end of the day so usually she goes home, and in the morning I didn’t see her. It doesn’t mean she’s not here but the possibilty of that is quite likely as well.

On the formal night (for everyone else. Haha rumor has it that we are the formal-boycott group) Sonam, April, Ti-, Vania and apparently 2 others are NOT going, and we’re seeing Persepolis or Tropical Thunder, and then eating at Achelya’s. I might find their restaurant site, but the point is April works at Achelya’s (unfortunately, that very night, so only other of us are eating) and we want to meet Kitchen Boy (read her blog).

De Fluffe, Out.

P.S. I love You, from “Ley” apparently. I wrote “Lex” in a note for Carmaine but didn’t cross the “x” properly and it read Ley.
