Man, what a long ass day. It starts with a email from Nik fuckin Nelson. I hate this guy. He is so Right-Wing (and mean, btw) and I am tired of getting this damn near hateful emails from him. Oh well. Anyway, it's a long story. Next, Mr. Daniel snapped in Graphic Design becuase we were talking during announcements. ((Rolls eyes)) Next we had a retarded treause hunt, but it was fun because me and Mike were working on the board and like giving orders to Freshmen. It was cool, I was part of a command squad or something made up of me, Mike, Jack, Harry, and Angus. Then after we lost, we watched the part of "Flash Gordon: Rocketship" which was hilarious! On that, there are a LOT of Flash Gordon movies. After that Mr. "Guys, guys? GUYS!?" Brisich bored me with useless math. Then we had lunch. Then it was 50s and 60's and I learned that Joe McCarthy was gay. Then Mr. Archibald told us ANOTHER retarded story about his "crazy adventures in tight rolling pants or wahtever". Then I had Feely's class and at the end he told me that I was "this close to failing [his] class." Whatever. Useless class anyway. Then Mr. Friday turned a nice metphor into biology...AGAIN. You know the phrase "What are girls made of? Sugar and spice and everything nice." Well, he gave us the direct measurements of like 8 oz of sugar, some other nice things, but NO SPICE!!! I slept the rest of class. So I read Planet of the Apes on the way home and I got a movie that was on my "Movies I want to see" list. I tracked one down! "Thunder Road" is what I have and I might watch that tonight. Either way, I am tired (grins) and I wanna go ta bed, I had a little drink about an hour ago and it went straight to my head! A little "Jaws" for ya. See ya-- post some comments! Joe
