Cats have ESP. Or at least textbookinesis. [07 Oct 2003|09:44pm]

Aww, Fluffy keeps taking naps on whatever textbook I need to use next, so I keep pulling them out from under him and then he moves again onto the one I'll need after that. (His abilities are magickal!) I feel bad, but it's kind of funny.

Who would name their kid Umberto? [07 Oct 2003|05:26pm]

Mr. Devalue wrote a rather amoosing note for us to take home to our parents. This is exactly how he handed us the paper, except his paragraphs had the first line indented.

Oct 7, 2004


As you are aware, Freehold HS will be having Parent Conferences on Oct 15 and Nov 11. I would love to meet with all of you to discuss the progress of your children. However I am a linear time being, unlike the aliens of the wormhole in Star Trek: Deep Space 9 who are multi-time beings. I have 107 students this year but only 30-appointment time slots over the two nights. To be fair to all 107 students and their parents, I have a procedure to set up appointments.

1). I have reserved 6 time slots for each of my 5 classes

2) Each student in the class will receive a number from 1 to 4 based on their class average. This will allow me to see the students who have the lower averages so that we can raise their grades. I will start with the students in group 1. If there are any appointments left I will then go to group 2 and then group 3. and finally group 4.

I will be giving each student a progress report on Monday Oct 13. If you do not get an appointment but still wish to discuss your child's progress, please send in a note and a phone number where you can be reached between 8:30 and 2:30. I will try and call you sometime that week.

Thanks for your understanding in trying to resolve this problem.

Mr. Jack De Value
Computer Science Instructor
Freehold HS

Um. He put me in group 1. And my average is a 100, as far as I know.

And I thought the current year was 2003.

Does this confoose you too?

I had a rather strange dream last night.

I (and my sister) were somehow in Tudorish times, during or just after the reign of Henry VIII. We were standing in a room with some guy, and there was also a fairly newbornish baby in there. Its blanket had a J embroidered into it. We were discussing the wives of Henry VIII for some reason, and there were extra ones. At least twelve. And I think the random guy in the room may have possibly been a son of one of the later wives.

Wow, that would have changed history really majorly. Weirdness. And I think we were trying to figure out the baby's name, too. Wonder if there's some weird psychological (I think that's the right word) reason it started with a J?

Doctor Who remains the coolest show/person ever. [05 Oct 2003|11:48pm]
[ mood | alive ]
[ music | Jon Pertwee - Who is the Doctor? ]

I cross the void beyond the mind,
The empty space that circles time.
I see where others stumble blind,
To seek a truth they never find;
Eternal wisdom is my guide -
I am....the Doctor.

Through cosmic space the TARDIS flies,
To taste the secret source of life
A presence science can't deny
Exists - within, outside, behind,
The latitude of the human mind
I am....the Doctor.

My voyage dissects the course of time.
'Who knows?' you say, but are you right
Who such indeed to find the light
That glows so darkly in the night -
Toward that point, I guide my flight.

As fingers move to end mankind,
Metallic teeth begin to grind.
With sword of truth, I turn to fight
The satanic powers of the night.
Is your faith before your mind?
Know me, am I....the Doctor?

Randomness... ness... ness... [05 Oct 2003|02:02pm]

Hee, my brother called: apparently he called to have us pick him up at the train station a half-hour ago, but Mom thought he meant to pick him up an hour from now. Needless to say, he confoosed. My sister went to go get him, but it's about a half-hour drive...

My sister has a very Orthodox friend, and apparently she went to Outback and nonchalantly ordered - and ate - a steak. From Outback. Wow. Apparently she's scared to tell her parents...

Having my period on Yom Kippur is going to suck. I've never had it on a fast day before, so at least it'll be an interesting experience... but yeah. Joy!

I think I'll use this journal for random thoughts. Maybe. And not tell people about it. Maybe.

I hate promising things.

I have seen the others and I have discovered that this fight is not worth fighting.

Go now, you are forgiven.

Just go.

Umm... yeah. New journal. Don't know if I'll actually use this thing often, since I've got a couple others in various places. But it's here.
