EHS is running a school motto contest. Anyone can submit an idea.

This is possibly the silliest thing they have ever done in the history of forever.

Mottos I have thought about submitting are as follows:

- "sic semper tyrannis"

- "discipuli nostrum bardissimi sunt"

- "morituri te salutant," and in that vein:

- "quidquid Latine dictum sit altum videtur"

- "EHS: Because we're better than Parkland."

- "Our principals have foreign accents."

- "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here." (submitted under Student Name: Dante Alighieri, Student ID: 000666)

It's probably going to end up being the last one - Laura's submitting the same thing, so. xD

But anyway. Chem lab got postponed, which is excellent news. Slightly less excellent news involves the Chem test, which has been going on for what, three periods now and is slated to continue tomorrow. Seriously, this is ridiculous. x_X At least it's giving me more time to study, though.

Science Olympiad on Friday! I might be an hour or so late to the review session tomorrow, guys - we're having Fencing Club for the first time in about a month, and since there's a tournament in mid-April, I kind of need to get back into the habit. xD; I will be there, though.

...I really need to catch up in Calc. x.X And, well, everything else, really. And I am sick of school, which is odd because I usually don't start feeling sick of school until late April, and I would like nothing better than to curl up in a blanket with a mug of hot coffee and read and read and read and read until my eyes fall out.

But I can't, because the books I want to read and read and read and read don't come out until this fall. ;_; So I guess instead of reading good literature I shall have to content myself with slamming bad literature.

(How in bloody Arda can people read Eragon and still maintain that Paolini isn't a plagiarist?)

Looks like I'm not going to make 50k this year. *shrug* My schedule's been insane and school has had to take precedence as usual, so...I'll still be working on the novel on and off this year, but...yeah. Maybe next year. :/

Anyway. Highlights from an extremely amusing AIM conversation I had with Javatom this afternoon.

Cut for extended Eragon mockery )

And here I thought you were my friends. xD

In other news, I finished Eragon this past week. I'd go into what I thought of it right now, but that would take far too long. Let's just say that I have five or six rants planned on various subjects that will pop up in the weeks to come. And an MST is in the works as well, but that'll take considerably longer to show up since I'm just about swamped with schoolwork right now. :P

Vanilor? Eridor? Isidar Mithrim?

May Il├║vatar have mercy on your soul, Paolini.


...actually, scratch that. I hope he smites you and smites you GOOD.

I love my lunch period. Here's why. )



AP European History

"The Italian city-states are the Wal-Mart of the Middle Ages." -Miss Furry

"Let's demonstrate the ability of people to instantly believe what they hear. Who is responsible for September 11?" -Miss Furry
"Al Qaeda." -Us
"Oh, come on, you know that wasn't the answer I wanted." -Miss Furry
"Saddam Hussein!" -Mike, grinning evilly

"You can't have that. It's not healthy. It makes your hair turn white and your heart explode." -Miss Furry, on too much stress

I'm thirty pages into Eragon and I already know how it'll all turn out. This, I think, is one of those Signs You Are Reading A Bad Book.

Anyway. Mr. Paolini seems to be way, way too fond of his thesaurus. And I've read better prose in fanfic - which, given the quality of some fanfic, isn't saying much, but there you go. Also, Rand al'Thor Luke Skywalker Eragon is, I'm guessing, supposed to be an interesting, engaging, likable character. Instead, I want to smack him over the head repeatedly.

...once I finish, I'll go into all of this in further detail, I assure you. xD

Today was rather nice. ^^ I got a 73 on my Calculus quiz, but since everyone else's scores seemed to be similarly abysmal, Mr. Burkhardt bumped everyone's grades up by three points, so now I have an 86, which is much better than I thought I'd do. ^^; Yeah.

And today we did a RAFT in AP Euro. My group got Prostitution in the Middle Ages. xD I was a Random Whore, Scott was a Lonely Man, and Sneha and Some Girl I Don't Know were Very Respectable Citizens. It would've been twice as good had we been able to pick our groups, but...eh well. xD


History of Western Philosophy

"So imagine you're sitting in class and all of a sudden...uh...Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings walks through the door, pushes poor Dr. Kolman aside, and says that he knows all there is to know. You can ask him a question - but only one. What do you ask him?" -Dr. Kolman
"What is God?" -Lily
"What is the meaning of life?" -Some Guy
"Can I have your autograph?" -Ireny

BubonicWoodchuck: Actually, I sort of lied. That wouldn't have been my question.
ArcticFox547: Well, I know, but it still amuses me. XD
BubonicWoodchuck: It would have been "OH VALAR YOU MET BOROMIR WHAT'S HE LIKE?! OMG!!!"
ArcticFox547: And that amuses me even more. XD
ArcticFox547: Though it's not exactly... unexpected. XP

AP European History

"We are gathered here to discuss the matter of Al's Brothel." -Scott, as a member of the Town Council

"Please do not use a font that looks like little rabbits or frogs." -Miss Furry, on typing up papers
