Went to school to do the scoring of the evil standardised creativity tests :( Rosanne and I struggled until the temporary speech woman, A, came out and declared, "I LOVE scoring standardised tests!" and enlightened us. At one point B came in and laughed at us because she has to do it, so I said, "You don't understand -- we're artists, and artists live in poverty in run-down housing and suffer and lead very difficult lives -- but we DON'T HAVE TO DO STANDARDISED TESTS." Rosanne and I were in total agreement about things, which was good. We had to struggle to score as instructed sometimes, but we did it. Those were just the first few tests. Got completely worn out, went to my car and found the off hind tire extremely low. Luckily R and her friend followed me to a gas station and then they actually went ahead and filled up my tire, which was above and beyond.
Upon entering the school I saw JC, and he told me about a possible new thing we might get involved in -- a "virtual museum." I said, "Money out, or money in?" He said money in. I said it'd been my dream to get the old yearbooks online. I saved all the old paste-ups from as far back as 1991 -- before anything was even possible (in our world). I said I'm not sure what shape they're in now as I can't protect objects, but they're there -- and at worst I could scan the old yearbooks themselves. The children now are children of, and siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews of the children in those early yearbooks. I have no clue why I arrived at school and IMMEDIATELY began putting yearbooks together, but it was just something I decided on and made happen. Now I think it's appreciated greatly by the parents and students. I have always told them that it's "not for now -- it's so you can go down memory lane in the future, and show YOUR children what things were like at school."
