So! Um. Haven't had Euro quotes here for a while. Here we go (these go pretty far back, like early-October-ish or so):
"I call it the Catholic Stadium!" -Miss Furry, on St. Thomas More Catholic Church
"That's what I do when I'm bored. I list the royal family of England back to WIlliam the Conqueror." -Miss Furry
"I don't go to haunted houses. I don't do that sort of thing. Plus it's in the middle of Palmerton, which is in the middle of nowhere, which is scary in and of itself." -Miss Furry
"...one of those flying nun things with the big hats." -Miss Furry
"These are the days before Saab and Ikea, so Adolphus needs some money." -Miss Furry, on Gustavus Adolphus
"And the Russians were converted to Christianity by...?" -Miss Furry
"No, really, there's this foolproof cure for sore throats. You take a spoonful of honey, and you get one of those nasal tape things - " -Jesse
"And then you dance around in a fairy circle and sprinkle flowers around a mighty oak?" -Miss Furry, with accompanying hand motions
"Ah, yes, Mulan
. A fount of historical accuracy." -Miss Furry, on the Mongols
"Oh my God!
Miss Furry got a haircut!" -Andy, upon seeing Mr. P-Something, our sub
So yeah, today we had a sub, because Miss Furry was out sick, and we had to watch this hilariously low-budget documentary on Peter the Great. It was absolutely hysterical, because every time there was a war or a battle there'd be this shot of a cannon firing, only it was always the exact same cannon
and it was the exact same clip
, and they didn't even bother moving the cannon around or anything. And the reenactor playing Peter the Great was short and had the fakest mustache known to man, and this is coming from someone who watched Gettysburg
all the way through without cracking a smile at the facial hair.
And they kept on showing this painting
, right, of Sophia Alekseyevna, except all close-up and creepy, and pretty soon whenever her portrait appeared onscreen the entire class went "WOOOOOOOOOAH SOPHIAAAAAAAAA!" and freaked out the sub. It was great.
...um. Going to try to catch up on NaNo. Am over ten thousand words behind. *is off*
