jhat a skeletal wreck of man this is Translucent flesh and feeble bones The kind of temple where the whores and villians Try to tempt the holistic tomes Running rampant with free thought to free form In the free and clear Where the matters at hand are shelled out like lint at a laundromat To sift and focus on the bigger, better, now

We all have a little sin than needs venting Virtues for the rending And laws and systems And stems ariff from the branches of office Do you know what your post entails? Do you serve a purpose? Or purposely serve?

Lying down inside of your adavistic galore The value of a Summer spent And a Winter earned

For the rest of us there is always Sunday. The day of the week that reeks of rest
But all we do is catch out breaths So we can wade naked into the bloody pool And place our hand on the big black book.

To watch the knives zig-zag between our aching fingers.

A vacation is a count-down T-minus your life and counting Time to drag your tongue across the sugar-cube And hope you get a taste

What the FUCK is all this for?!

I could go on and on, but, lets move on shall we?

Say, you're me and I'm you And they all watch the things we do And like a smack of spite They threw me down the stairs Haven't felt like this in years
The great magnet of malicious magnanamous refuse Let me go and Punch me into the dead spot again.

Thats where you go when theres' no one else around It's just you
And there was never anyone to begin with now was there?

Sanctomonious pretentious dasterdly bastards With their thumb on the pulse And a finger on the trigger CLASSIFIED MY ASS! that's a FUCKING secret and you know it!

Government is another way to say

It's like ice but no pick A murder charge that won't stick It's like a whole other world Where you can smell the food But you can't touch the silverware

Hah, what luck
Fascism you can vote for
Isn't that sweet

I'm sorry, I could go on and on but
It's time to move on, so

Remember your a wreck, an accident Forget the freak, your just nature Keep the gun oiled and the temple clean Shit, snort and blaspheme Let the heads cool and the engine run

Because in the end, Everything we do Is just everything we've done.

Come one, come all... [09 Feb 2005|08:38pm]
It just occured to me that no one really knows about this yet. Seeing as this could be a problem, I would like to take this oppurtunity to announce that there is a Gay Straight Alliance forming at Whitman. The first meeting will be on Feburary 17 from 2:30 to 3:30. The location has yet to be announced because we still need to find a teacher who isn't busy on Thursdays. This is a part of the ASAP program but if you don't want your parents to know talk to Emily (Canning), Ragna, Sonia or me about it. Also, this isn't just for people who are gay or questioning. Anyone who had even the slightest interest in the program should join. Also, if you know of a teacher who is free Thursdays after school and would possibly be willing to supervise us, talk to me.

[ mood | awake ]

Does anyone who had Staheli last semester know what it's like to be Rear Admiral? 'Cause I really want to be Rear Admiral for my class and I heard that you basically just walk behind everyone whenever your class goes to an assembly or whatever. Plus, you get a really cool title. I mean, I would pay money to be the Rear Admiral, just because it sounds so fucking cool.

Who has Journalism this semester? I'm just curious to see how it's going *sob* without me!

If anyone has science this semester with Staheli, you can simply copy the MOS log form from this website:
It gives you the entire form, and then simply copy paste an experiment off of a website, BUT, make sure that you put it in your own words, and write stuff like "materials" "procedure" etc.
It got me 150 points :)

Hm.. well lets see. We post more than Ragna [creator if you dont knoe lol] and now that i've moved mai personal life to Xanga, i will only be updating in communities from now on. so check me out at Xanga sometime, and leave a little comment in the little box thing or w/e.

Oh yeah, I need help on this paper for Ms. Marks. Mines on Vasco da Gama.

This is what I have so far:
Lia Kost
Geography Period 6
October 14th, 2004

Vasco da Gama was an outstanding explorer in the late 1400s. Originally his father had been chosen for the voyage to India, then his brother was said to had turned down the exposition as well. The trip needed to be made, and as a last choice, King Emmanuel looked to Vasco to complete the mission. So knowing this, he set out for what the world at that time, thought to be impossible.

Vasco da Gama was born in Sines, Portugal in 1469. His father was the towns governor so he was highly educated as a noblemen and served in the court of King Joao II.

He served as a navel officer, and in 1492 he commanded a defense of Portuguese colonies from the French on the coast of Guinea. Then he was given the mission to take command of the first Portuguese expedition around Africa to India. On July 8th, 1497 he and his crew planned and equipped four ships. Paulo, his brother, commanded the Sao (Saint) Rafael and Goncalo Alvares commanded the flagship Sao Gabriel. The other two ships, were the Starship, and the Berrio. Most of the men working on the ships were convicts, and were treated as expendable. da Gama set out from Lisbon, Portugal, then rounded the Cape of Good Hope on Nov. 22nd, and sailed north. Da Gama made many stops along the coast of Africa in trading centers. He finally arrived in Calicut, India on May 20th, 1498.

Vasco da Gama’s expedition to India is very important for the Portuguese. It led to many future expeditions. Also it opened many good trades for Portugal. It’s important to know information about da Gamas expedition, because future explorers (after his expeditions) can use that information to do the same, and possibly go farther. It’s important to know what is out there, and know more than your normal surroundings.

I know, it sucks doesn't it =(

Hey. I'm sitting here in my PJ's because I got to play it sick for two whole days, and I could have done more but I'm really bored, but I did get to read a bunch of really good books, and I might have a relaps if I come back to school... Hn. Run on sentance.
Shut up. I know what I'm doing.
Do not!
Do to!
Do not!
Do to!
Yeah, what she said.
You can shut up to.

Just goes to show. I wonder if there's a limit to how crazy we can get by being locked up in that hunk of metal, wood, and brick. Hmm.

EVERYONE!!!! I need your help. I am setting out on a quest for the odd and the 'shunned'. Do you have any stories you're working on, any songs you could possibly copy for me? I'm looking for the art of the weirdos. Pictures, paintings, sketches, sculptures, stories, songs, don't you just love how everything starts with P's and S's? Well, if you have anything for me, just post it/send it to me via email/friends.
