MHS has been closed down for a week (I’ve heard this from 2 rather reliable sources. One of them dates a MHS boy the other IS a MHS boy).
MacRob, however, is not.
Christina and I were in Chinese when I got the news from Catherine, and Christina prompted complained, “Why can’t we just get some Yr 9s to go pash some MHS guys so we can get a week off school?”
Political incorrectnesss and just plain meanness aside, I agree with her.
MHS is PRACTICALLY MacRob, disease-wise. If they get closed down why can’t we? Sure, they have 6 confirmed cases and we have 2 awaitng test results and me who is feeling a bit feverish, but still.
The one good thing that’s come out of this partial closure is that at least Flinders St in the mornings won’t be crowded by juniors and their boyfriends/wannabe boyfriends/wannabes.
Okay, so, what to say?
Today was the last day of Term 1. Thank GOD! It hasn’t been a long term exactly (not like last year’s Term 2 which decided to run a marathon of 12 weeks) but for a number of reasons – one of which is the mere fact that we’re in Yr 12 – it has been very very tiring.
Carmaine was sick last night – fever, I heard – so today she wasn’t there in the morning. I got a bit “grumpy” on the way to school and went ahead on the trams with Annie. My “grumpiness” is frequenting itself of late. I don’t know why.
I skipped Methods today. Oh before that, Shaz came back from her bout of Glandular. Anyway, I skipped Methods today under the false pretense (for future notes) that Est- was feeling like throwing up, which she was pretty close to.
In the double free – the official double free – I kind of slothed over the couch in the Common Room and had a small nap with Cath and Jennie (each of whom groped me at least once). Skipped lunch, groaned through Legal – Sho- gave us chocolate! Major shock – and went home at the start of Period 6 in the pouring rain, crashing thunder and very promiscuous lightning (think about it).
Look, it’s actually pretty late (for me) and I’ve had a long-ish sort of day. I’ll blog the rest of what happened today as well as an explanation for my blog title tomorrow.
Take care of yourselves; there’s a bug going around and it’s having babies on everyone.
