I HATE HALLOWEEN. Okay? It is a druid festival. It isn't meant to be scary. It's meant to be happy. It's about a spiritual veil thinning out so spirits can visit from the underworld. The only thing scary that is supposed to be there are the bloody pumpkins! But nooooo, some guy in the 20th century decided it would be great if we could use it as an excuse to dress up like imbeciles and get sweets!
Dude from the 20th century; you're missing the point!
You are kidding me. You have got to be joking. Pokémon is animal abuse?
Okay, I see where you're coming from. I really do. Snatching little creatures from the wild and pitting them in fights against each other? But come on, people. Think about this. Pokémon, first and foremost, are Pokémon. Let me make that perfectly clear.
POKÉMON. NOT ANIMALS. POKÉMON.
We had some proper biology today, and my lab partner (who is not pyrophobic, BTW) handled rats, millipedes, cockroaches... but she wouldn't go near this snake.
Hm. Well, good news, she does actually have a phobia. So that's one mystery solved.
I've realised (with uncomfortable alarm) that my new "thing" now is terrible jokes.
Yes, shut up, don't say anything, I know it's the weekend.
IT teacher called me a weird git and proceeded to give me his pen. (The politically correct term is nerd, by the way)
Lab partner appears to be pyrophobic.
The entire class spent the whole of Period 6 reading on English teacher's request.
Had three fruit salad pots for lunch yesterday.
This is going to take some getting used to.
