A Boring PostGetting a little closer with the yearbook. Christy worked on the kindergarten page (with crayons as the theme). I made H work on her store, randomuniverse. Tenaya got work done on the seventh grade activities page and the first grade "comic" page. Sam and Gabe took photos. Dakota made a very nice little drawing. Skyla made a comic strip about a student missing the bus. It's quite basic, but nice. I accosted the teachers about material for the yearbook (again, as usual, etc.) Had a training thing after work so I didn't get home until 5:00. Montrose walked me out to my car to tell me about an Aussie band night he went to -- the Vines, et al. He said the Vines were good live, which rather surprised me. I'm still chafing over having to miss Mudhoney, the Melvins, and Ariadne auf Naxos in one week due to my feeble-ocity. Not just in one week -- in half of one week. Oh, well.
D. BullPlume asked me to bring in large-sized Ts, today, for her to sell at her Evergreen class, but apparently she forgot. Put not your trust in bullplumes, I'd reckon.
Not a particulary interesting day. Spoke with v.p. this morning about a) the poster, and b) the freakin' pow wow tent, which is a topic I'm growing tired of. The Muckleshoots are supposed to come up with a (huge) tent otherwise we're back trying to get (rather later in the day) Omar the Tent Man's enormo-jumbo-rrific tent that's something like 7 grand. I asked a few weeks ago (something that's always gnawed at me) whether Omar the TentMaker is his real name -- since Omar Khayam means "Omar the TentMaker," it seems as though it's a pseudonym but who knows? Certainly no one at school. I shall have to ask O the TM next time I see him (which doesn't happen often enough so that I recognise him).
Got summoned by Psi online last night when I logged on for a minute. He said, "I'm just going to be on line 10-15 minutes* because I have to go to school tomorrow." I said, "Boo," or something. He said, "No, they are being easy on us." I said "Too bad, they should stress you to the max." "Whose side are you on?" "I'm a trouble-maker." "I noticed." There's a large percentage of There people looking for "romance," I suppose one might say. It seems like a lonely sort of place for a well-behaved 13 year old.
