Shitshitshitshitshit...

I'm quite glad I ran into Lauren this morning. She says Mrs. D. is/was furious about senior skip day and was, without telling those of us not there, making the final due date for the paper today instead of tomorrow. And here I was, all set to go in and discuss my rough draft. Instead, I'm skipping first period to try to write the rest of my paper. *PANIC* Dammit, I wish that woman wouldn't keep CHANGING HER MIND!

Besides, all I did during my "skip day" was work on English, Calculus, and then watch Crispin Glover movies. But we won't really mention that last one to her. >_> Back to Daughter of Fortune I go...

Maybe if we all liked Spam...

Today was a thoroughly bizarre day. But I did finish my paper! I did! The test is... how much will she hate it?.

And the Kurtz library woman is a Nazi biatch. >__> I'm trying to write a paper and she closes the library for no apparent reason! Hustles us all out. Tried to extort extra money from me too in library fines. I was kind of nasty, but figured I deserved to be as I'd only paid her a couple days before. Mind like a fucking sieve. And 'kurtz' makes me think of Heart of Darkness... if she put the heads of students who misbehaved in the library up on spikes, I wouldn't be surprised. It also makes me think of German.

Which reminds me... why do I keep getting spam email in German? I can't read German! I know nothing about German!

Well, that was one of the most random sequeways ever.

And the Colonel (school paper) mini-issue on SEXXX came out today. It's hysterically funny. And it includes my drawing of a sessy girly. But... dammit, they have no idea how to resize things! >__> This... this is why they should have let me be on Colonel staff, if only so I could take care of how my own damn artwork appears. Wankers.

By the way, I am getting Best Female Artist this year. And I'm not just bragging; it's pretty much confirmed. Amy told me. *pleased with Amy because she brought to me the good news... and because she had to sit next to Kori all of fourth period. Hehe*

Don't ask how or why I came across this...

But ARRRRGH! >__< I hate, hate, hate how our culture portrays the Holocaust. I hate it!

On Steven Spielberg's Oscar acceptance speech for Schindler's List:

"In his acceptance speech he thanked 'the six million who can't be watching this among the one billion watching this telecast tonight. In so many American schools, the Holocaust really is a footnote in the history books.'"

Excuse me? Six million? Ha! Try ELEVEN. What about all of those non-Jews who were killed? Do they not matter? Oh, I suppose not. Five million people... eh. Disposable, really. Never mind that Hitler also wiped out almost the entire population of Eastern European gypsies. They aren't Jewish, so WHO CARES!

And a footnote in our history books? I don't know about other people my age, but I think I was forced to study the Holocaust in depth every year until tenth grade. And when my opinions didn't coincide with the rest of the class? When I suggested that maybe Jews were being a tad bit overrepresented in the literature we read, especially since I had never been taught anything about the Holocaust victims who were not Jews (besides mentioning them in passing; "Oh yeah... and all those other guys died too"). People got angry with me. Yes, little racist, anti-Semitic me.

The only thing I'm anti is discrimination. And when you ignore five million people because they aren't a certain religion...? Yeah. Sounds like discrimination to me! But, y'know... I'm just cynical like that.

Be aware that, when you read my journal, you will probably see this rant numerous times in many different forms. :D You will also be shown this site over and over:
