Such Nonsense!!

ITS SPRING BREAK!! Finally!! I'm more than a little excited, for anyone who cares. Unfortunately its rainy and nasty out...psh, it figures. I'm working on my Regionals post, but in the meantime, due to the great impatience of our dear celloist, I shall post the following.

At a recent assembly, we were informed that there would be no more marking upon the skin of others with pen. Apparently, parents and teachers were complaining about it, and such will be seen as bullying and hazing. If a teacher discovers such marks on a student, he or she will ask from whence it came and will take measures to ensure the mark-er will be dealt with appropriately. Now, bear to mind that I am the official giver of marks of coolness (as written about in earlier posts). When this wonderful practice was started, it was in no way meant to haze or bully. In fact, if anyone knows me at all they would know I am FAR from the type of person to engage in such behavior. This pretty much destroys a whole tradition of the 05-06 school year. To say I am deeply appalled at the state of this nonsense is a gross understatement. To John, Chaz and all those who joined me in the giving of marks of coolness, I wish to extend my deepest apologies at this whole bit of insanity.

Hahahaha... your marks of coolness affect me not. I shall never be "cool," never in a million years. Not until the next ice age shall I be "cool." In fact, a precaution I will take to avoid being cool is that instead of putting myself in a cryogenic chamber, I shall have myself buried... in a volcano!!! (in Hawaii of course). Muwahh haa haa haa haaaaaa!!!! *mutters to himself and snickers incredulously* Marks of coolness. Ha.

Oh, and, being homeschooled, I can give marks of coolness to anyone I like, not being confined by silly rules such as these.

If enough people complain, they'd probably outlaw color, huh? Or how 'bout emotions? They seem to crack down on fun, so that's already taken care of...

The more I hear about different schools, the more I'm rethinking my evaluation of politicians in DC... I think school administrators may be just as nonsensical.

What has this generation come to? I mean seriously, you're bloody writing on peoples bodies? What kind of nonsense is this? Keep to your bloody self and don't invade the space of others no matter how welcomed you may be. Furthermore, this is further proof that people aren't wearing enough clothes. What has happened in the world of Christian education, it's all gone to hell in a hand basket.

Celloist, you're just jealous you never got an original mark from me!! But its ok, I'll give you a blog one /__/____________ so now you can be cool and there won't be any need for petty jealousy;-)

lol chuck, well its not THAT bad. I was just a little frusterated at how sometimes the little things get really blown out of proportion, yanno? I think people need to pick their battles...but whatever, I'll get over it.

Thanx 4 the encouragement Scarlett!! one of ur buddies was the first to give a mark right after the assembly, lol. should that surprise you? nooooooope;-)

NL, somehow your words don't surprise me. I just feel great pity for your children one day, who won't be allowed to do stupid and pointless, but none the less fun, things. Hopefully Janna is nicer about such things. (just for the record i'm not attacking you personally, but i feel duty bound to defend my marks of coolness). If I ever see you in person I shall give you a mark so that you may bask in the happiness of getting one, and then maybe you'll understand.

"(in Hawaii of course). Muwahh haa haa haa haaaaaa!!!! *mutters to himself and snickers incredulously* Marks of coolness. Ha."

Don't you mean "Laughs maliciously, or "ominously", or even "malignantly"?
Possibly "sadisticly", seeing as you are muttering about a girl's "mark of coolness"?

Whatever you meant, surely you did not mean incredulously, because that means you doubt that you can do all that shazz. (Mayhap you will use maniacally, beacaus you think you are a scary evil genious/maniac.)

Bennidick, its eriKa, with a K!! I FINALLY got NL to spell it right, pleeeeease do me a favor and do so as well;-) As for what kind of a girl I am, well, I'm def. not a party girl...at least not in the traditional party sense, lol. You won't find me passed out drunk in a corner anywhere neway. I guess I'm not totally a good girl tho, either. Maybe in between?

Hi emily who apparently reads my blog. I wanna hear wedding details...i LOVE weddings!!

Evie my girl, I'm pretty sure I gave you a mark of coolness, didn't I?? And if I didn't, i shall have to if I see you again. there really is no need to be jealous or angry.

Gordon, I DID EMAIL YOU!! you must email ME back!!
