Waking-dream.

People, meet my new avatar.Avatar, people.I call it ‘Waking dream’.Not mine of course but worthy of being my signature. :/

No, I did not just write in to say that.What d’you mean     “*Mutter* Wouldn’t be the first time now, would it?’ ?

I want to know just how much they pay our teachers.Must be quite a bit- they sure are doing a good job of keeping our noses to the grindstone and boy, do I mean keeping them right there.Almost nailing them right there.Apart from the potentially disturbing imagery, I’m trying to say here that although I have been granted a few measly days’ rest now ( only English and Biology to go), my schnozzle will be right back ‘where it belongs’ in a while as Phase-II of the BBE*s begins.Oh, to be me! And I do NOT mean that in a good way.

I meant to post yesterday.I had a whole host of reasons as to why I should be exempt from these exam-thingies.Really, do you doubt ME? Do you? Have you no religion? Yes, that kind of thing.Very amusing reasons they were, too.So much so that I spent a good half hour perfecting them before being forced back most cruelly to Reality.Physics.Oh God, Physics! Bloody Physics.Yes, that thing.And about the test today? Yeah, well, it will most certainly entertain my teacher.Unfortunately you don’t get marks for that sort of thing.Ah well.What did you expect with only a day and a half and 15 never-before-seen chapters to study..I wish I had me some wine in which to drown my sorrows.I mean c’mon, it’s almost poetic perfection.Maybe I’ll be a sad drunk and go around sobbing on peoples’ shoulders (and wiping my nose on their sleeves..).Naw, that was just me getting carried away with nose-references.

I’ve also been reading the Hitch hikers Guide To The Galaxy.Yes, before that same Physics test.You can see what I mean by ‘entertaining’, can’t you? Anyway, I love his sense of humour so far.It can reach toxic doses at some points, really – bit like holding a gun to your head and saying, ” That’s right, go on, LAUGH!”.But mostly, it’s good.And I love Marvin.LOVE.I am hereby officially adopting him.  ( ” Do you want me to sit in the corner and rust, or just fall apart where I’m standing?”

“Would you like me to go and stick my head in a bucket of water?”

“Life. Don’t talk to me about life.” Ha ha.).

That’s about it.I might post again if I get around to painting something.Until then..

( You may rejoice.)

searching-for-meOh, they had better be! Incidentally just who do you file a suit against in this case?That’s what I’d like to know.

Sometimes though, education can be worse than bitter – it can be just plain olde stupid ( and here I quote our textbooks) :

” This is also known as small signal current gain and its value is very large.” Bloody physics.

” People should not participate in the election process because they don’t know what’s good for them.” From my brother’s text on the chief arguments against Democracy.

” It may also be performed by unqualified, illegal quacks ( Comment : Quacks?!)..”.As in the Biology text book  (something about intrauterine contraceptives).

Disclaimer : Italics are mine, obviously.

Although they are entertaining, these little snippets just seem to crop up so much more often when The Big Bad Exams are here and I need to vent, don’t they? This has been your Fact For the Day.

What else has happened that is of moment and worthy of this here blog? I just finished Atlas Shrugged a couple of days back.You know, because that is obviously The Thing To Do when you have The Big Bad- let’s just say BBEs from now, shall we? So, yes.I was saying.Thing to do.Obviously.

And? It’s brilliant.It has all the Objectivism from Fountainhead and her characteristic style..In short : Really liked it.The only trouble with it is the microscopic print- takes halfway to forever to read!- and the fact that it can just get a little too verbose and repetitive at some points.I am in love with the idea and characters, though.And you know what they say, love is blind!So it is that I am urging you all once again to GO READ IT ALREADY!

And because of the insistent throbbing somewhere around my temples ( say hi, temples!) I am going to have to call it a night, here.Actually more because I have managed to convince myself that this is, of course, the only reason I am not studying for that dreaded Physics Exam (Ohhh boy!) and if I keep at this that bossy, sensible voice in my head is going to have things to say, isn’t it? Not leaving without a quote from the book, though (and my favourite) :

I think it’s funny.  There was a time when men were afraid that somebody would reveal some secret of theirs that was unknown to their fellows.  Nowadays, they’re afraid that somebody will name what everybody knows.

– Fransico d’Anconia ( Although I like Rearden better.And Dagny- yes, the female lead, for a change! I couldn’t stand Galt, though. That would be my second-favourite quote: ‘Who is John Galt?’.OKOK, I’m leaving.Give the girl navy dude a break!)

Update:

I found this in the dictionary:

“quack 2 // (kwk) n.

1. An untrained person who pretends to be a physician and dispenses medical advice and treatment.”

Who knew?!
