|| I can meet my deadlines!
Today was the last day of school for term two, semester one, and it was a bludge day. Yay! Well, actually, it started off pretty crappy. Slept in, almost missed the bus, had to take my pocket money for lunch. First period we had health. We normally have it in one of the empty science labs, so we went in and started taking down chair. Now, most of them are harmless and made of plastic, but I was taking down one of the metal and plastic ones, and I cut my wrist on the bottom. I mean, seriously! How do you cut yourself on a CHAIR?!
Then our teacher, Mr Harriet came in and told us that as most of the class wasn't there it wasn't big enough to teach and we were going to the gym. So off to the gym we trudge. While the assorted teachers marked the rolls of assorted classes, my friend Jess and I were playing tag. I went to tag her on the shoulder and my hand slipped down her arm. Her watch is broken and has a spiky bit poking out of it. Naturally, my finger caught on it. So now I have a three millimeter deep scratch in my finger. And because of the damned school rules they couldn't even give me some antiseptic for it, just a couple of bandaids.
So I'm sitting there trying to open the bandaids with one hand as I had the other in my mouth, when in walks my friend Zoe, late as usual and here to sign in. She see's me with my finger in my mouth and the torn bandaid packets in my lap and grins. 'Shit Al! What did ya do this time. Sicisors again?' She exclaims, refering to the incident a few years back that involved a VERY sharp pair of sicisors, alot of blood and my right thumb. She signs in, comes over and puts the bandaids on for me. And then its back to the gym where I spend the next 40 minutes standing on the sidelines as the mixed classes play dogeball.
Second period, Food Studies. After Mrs Wolfhagen (Pronounced Hargen) lets us in, we spend 10 minutes sitting around as she hunts for the keys to the computer lab she booked us into. I spend the time talking movies with Jess and Leah and then listening to Good Charlotte with Zoe on her diskman. Eventually Mrs W finds the keys and we get to the computer lab. We answer the questions she gave us on the board and then got to surf the net for the next half an hours. I spent most of the time teaching Zoe how to use Windows Media Player, such as burning, making playlists, for which she then called me a smartarse (Thats a compliment from her). And then I showed her how to get a background on her computer.
Recess, inside 'cause it was raining AGAIN! Bought a hot-dog and a hot chocolate choc chip muffin. Glad I brought money for lunch rather than a home packed one. Hotdog was good, but when I went to open the muffin Tali snatched it off me. Or tried to at least. I didn't let go, the packaging broke and it fell. I caught it just before it hit the ground, but melted chocolate is really hot. I went off at her and she cowered and gave me the puppy dog eyes. I thought I had worked up a resistance to over the years (I mean, I had to to be able to survive primary school with Zoe and Aiden) but I melted and forgave her. Then she mannaged to scab half the muffin. Don't knwo how she does it.
Third period, double Metal Technology. Again, the gym. I spent the lesson finishing my book (Guitar Highway Rose) and then watching Melissia try (and fail) to teach Beccy some of her dance moves. Melissia does dance classes after school and she's really good at it. Then lunch, spent it reading Dolly magzines in the library and pointing out all the horrible clothes celebrities seem to wear to Francis and Tali.
Maths next. Spent the lesson playing games. Battleship (Jen won) and Connect four (Jen won twice, I won three times, Jen cheated. Won against the teacher once, tied once). Then ANOTHER combined class, three English classes in the one room. Wtahced the ending of The Labyrinth. I love David Bowie in that, he actually looks good in it. You know, aside from those grey (tight) pants. Bell goes, caught the 449 into Dickson and went to the library. Returned Chobits(disk four) and Undertow, picked up Cardcaptor Sakura(first manga), FLCL(first disk), Angelic Layer(seventh disk), The Grim Grotto(Series of unfortunate events) and Ark Angel(Alex Rider). Came home, played with dog, wrote up this.
Tomorrow Dad, Steve, Matthew and I are going to see Batman Begins. It's supposed to be really good, so I hope it is. Oh, and Jess might be sleeping over. Maybe. Anyway, thats today.
TWO WEEKS OF HOLLIDAYS!
