He got to her! =(
Emma: Forcing people to hang out at [a tram stop in the middle of nowhere] is NOT part of being a good citizen.
Me: Yep, I agree. But did you really have to bring out good citizenship to tell me that?
Emma: Annoying your sister with "how to be a good citizen" is NOT part of being a good citizen.
Me: So why are you doing it then?
Emma: I'm a bad citizen.
Me: Oh, that's OK then. (pause) WAIT A MINUTE -
Emma: What do you mean, "wait a minute"?
Me: If annoying me with "how to be a good citizen" is bad citizenship, and you're a bad citizen, that means you're going to KEEP annoying me with it!
Emma: Pretty much.
Me: But that means he got to you! HE FINALLY GOT TO YOU!
Emma: Oh, please. Did you really think I was going to refrain from annoying you forever?
Me: (gapes, horrified) You know what, Emma? I'm GONE. I'm GOING. BYE. (runs)
Emma: (follows me) Going when your little sister is trying to tell you about good citizenship is NOT part of being a good citizen!
Me: Shut up!
Emma: Shutting up is NOT part of being a good citizen!
At homework help...
Year 7: Hey, sir, what are your plans for this weekend?
Mr O'Caollaidhe: I'm taking over the world.
Year 7: Huh?
Mr O'Caollaidhe: Well, I was looking over my options, and it was either take over the world or... uh... learn Greek. So, no contest. I decided to take over the world. Learning Greek can wait until next weekend.
Me (randomly): You know, I once had a dream that you had your own secret police.
Mr O'Caollaidhe (grinning): I have that dream too!
Me: Yeah... they arrested me because I was a "bad influence" on society or something like that.
Mr O'Caollaidhe: Well, fair enough. You need some extra re-education.
Me: They did feed me doughnuts, though.
Mr O'Caollaidhe: Well, that's because my secret police understand the importance of winning hearts and minds. And if they can't win hearts and minds, the least they can do is to kill off my enemies with cholesterol poisoning.
Year 7: Cholesterol what?
Mr O'Caollaidhe: You know, where you eat so many doughnuts that your arteries clog up and you keel over and die? By the way, what are you holding?
Year 7: It's my evil plan.
Mr O'Caollaidhe: Well, let me see! (takes piece of paper; discovers it to be a doctored extras sheet in which this year 7 has indicated that his English teacher will be away)
Year 7: Can you tell it's a fake?
Mr O'Caollaidhe: Uhh... yes.
Year 7: How come?
Me: Well, you need to put the day of the week on it.
Mr O'Caollaidhe: And the big question mark in the middle of the page doesn't look too good.
Year 7: But that's where I cut the "CDE" out from!
Mr O'Caollaidhe: But it's SO OBVIOUS! You need to work harder on this. (returns "evil plan")
Year 7: Well... do you have a magnet?
Mr O'Caollaidhe: Sorry, no, I left it at home today.
Year 7: Damn! I need to reprogram my card -
Mr O'Caollaidhe: I left it at home because it's part of my machine with which I'm going to take over the world.
The end is nigh! →
From my blog: At my school, the year 11s and 12s decided that today was the day they were finally going to read the newspaper. They read that it was potentially the end of the world, and have gone absolutely ballistic.
From my blog: When I stand up, I am dizzy. At all times, I am tired. I cough obscenely often. My throat scratches. My nose is blocked. I think I may be losing my voice.
Finally at watergardens hip hip hooray!
YES we are moving!!!
Stuck on an unmoving train somewhere between castlemaine and melbourne. Waaaah!
Please tell me you guys have seen this cartoon about WW2. It would be such a tragedy to know that anyone has been deprived as long as I have. (I laughed for about 10 minutes when I first saw this!)
