So let mercy come

[What I’ve Done – Linkin Park]

Today, Annie and Jen did their presentation for Understanding Australian Media, and since their topic was advertising, their group activity was to get everyone to design a billboard ad for a made up brand of chocolate called Ganache, and two groups had to make it super sexual and stereotypical, while the other two had to be innovative and family friendly.

I was in the super sexual group – yerp – and I was with Mai, Brian and Lisa, all of whom I’ve known for longer than this semester, at the least. We weren’t sure of what to do, so ultimately we drew something along the lines of cream being slathered onto these two little pieces of chocolate that looked like the heaving bosoms of a young maiden.

It was quite awkward to draw, especially when I was drawing the cream being poured, and Brian was sitting next to me hissing “yeah draw it, draw it good” to weird me out.

Anyway, unnoticed to us, we’d actually managed to draw something else even more crude. Let’s just say that the picture was structured to have two spherical shapes down the bottom, and in between these spherical shapes stood a longer looking shape.

I don’t think our chocolate would sell.

Ganache – let it come all over you: Mai and I co-wrote this slogan.

Alex.

Methods SAC

Today was the first 3/4 Methods SAC. I had a triple free at the end of the day so I did a little bit of work in P4, had lunch in the Common Room with Dani (who was going bananas over her Lit SAC in the very next double) and then in P5 and 6 bunkered down in the library and did a few exercises.

SAC wasn’t too bad, I suppose. I had people reckon that the SAC was harder than the 2nd test, which I found absurd seeing as I got 69% for the 2nd test (haha 69) so it either means I am falsely confident and I am so fucked for this SAC, or they were wrong. There was one irksome question, which I know I did not get. But, really, it wasn’t altogether too bad.

After the seemingly obligatory post-SAC-mortem, Carmaine, Fel and I went to buy some junk/comfort food at Flinders, before taking an old train home.

Now I await my results.

My week’s outlook is not bright:

Friday: Grand Prix so I will bunker at home and study for my English SAC which is in a week, my English Language SAC which is in a week and a day, and perhaps if I can be bothered my Chinese SAC which is a day before my English. Flipside? After next Tuesday, I can thoroughly enjoy my last week of wearing school uniforms.

Speaking of which, we tried on the hoodies today in the Common Room, and I was (figuratively) swimming in the XS. I sure am looking forward to wearing the jumpers, though, because that will show the stupid Juniors who the Yr 12s are.

And, I suppose, speaking of 69. Andrew got a new – and what I call – “Special Poster” which he so gleefully showed me last week. It was the Periodic Table of Elements, except replace the last word with “Sex-Positions”. There were, for example, and this was actually the only example which I paid attention to – or rather, dared to pay attention to, the “Standing 69.” It came complete with a graphic illustration/instruction, employing 2 artist’s mannequins, one for female and one for male. And where the Table of Elements have the extra bit along the bottom, Andrew had “Advanced Positions” which, at a glance, seemed to defy gravity.

A suitably awkward yet highly amusing topic of conversation.

I spent my weekend watching Just for Laughs Gags online. They are. INGENIUS. I hope I do get onto the video committee so I can perhaps employ some of those gags. Oh and Bianca and Fel are on the Formal Committee, Bee being the General Manager. That sounds really important, so congratulations to her!

Longest post in a while. Sorry I have been so quiet lately (and this was reflected on my blog hits). I suppose getting Facebook was a very bad disease for the popularity of my blog, and also I suppose Yr 12 VCE was also a crippling handicap. Besides, there really haven’t been much of write-worthy lately.

OH AND, I NEARLY FORGOT! Today Gen and Bec shaved their heads. A public spectacle at lunchtime, and both shed tears. We love those two, though. What a good cause!

D.F.

You walk into a bar…

I felt like something light hearted today, so here’s a bunch of funny/lame/good for a laugh pickup lines I found on the internet (basically googled “funny pick up lines” and clicked the first link). Yeah, some you may have heard, I get it. Oh, please, don’t ever try it.

Can Iย buy you a drink – or would you just prefer the five bucks?

I wish I were a tear so i could start in your eyes, live on your face, and die on your lips.

You must be the reason for global warming because youโ€™re hot.

You know what would look great on you? Me.

Is your name Gillette? Because youโ€™re the best a man can get!

Do you have a mirror in your pocket? Because I can see myself in your pants.

What has 142 teeth and holds back the incredible hulk? My zipper.

Letโ€™s make like fabric softener and snuggle.

You have 206 bones in your body. Do you want another one?

And the one I tell people: (not to pick up)

Do you have a quarter? Because I want to call my mom to tell her I met the girl of my dreams.

De Fluffe, OUT!
