Pi Day
Passive voice will be used throughout this entry. Copious amounts of linking verbs will also be used. The end result (hopefully): sleep will be induced by my grammatical train wreck of an entry. As has been known, Pi Day was today. Pi Day was celebrated by our school in various ways. The classrooms were adorned by charts of pi. That is to say, charts of pi, pi bead chains, pi paper chains, and pies themselves, were found by all in the classrooms. Pie itself was consumed by many.

The most interesting event of the day was the Brownell-Talbot pie eating contest. Contestants were gathered in the gym by the faculty, and they were instructed by the faculty so that pies might be consumed by them as quickly as possible. The end result, pies would be eaten by the students as quickly as possible. The student whose pie eating feats were most recognized by the teachers would be given a prize by the teachers and faculty. Joe Rotert, director of grounds, was instructed by Gregory Logsdon, head of upper school, to present this prize, which was made by Mrs. Beth Anderson, who is the math department chair. This prize was a giant sculpture of pie. It is ten feet tall and 30 feet wide. It was suggested by some that this sculpture was too large, and in fact, could not be properly presented. This idea was condemned by Mr. Logsdon and many of the faculty were fired by the same. The winner of this contest could not be named by anyone present. At the end of it, one person was caused to fall to the floor by an unnamed assailant. The unnamed assailant was allowed to escape by the lack of attention of all who happened to be present. In the end, the pie sculpture was not awarded by anyone. The participants were congratulated on their hard work.

These events may or may not have been relayed correctly by me.

Chinese
There seems to be an endless controversy over romanization of Chinese, so I'm inventing a new system. It's based partially on real English words so that English speakers will be able to read it more easily. Here's some examples.

Chiang Kai-Shek = Shunk Eye Shek
Mao Zedong/Tse-Tung = Mousey Dung, eliminating a controversy.
Wang Wei = Wong Way
Sun Li-Jen = Sun Legion
Wen Jiabao = When Jahbow

I think this work well. Hopefully the defunct system will soon be driven into the dust.

Clearly, no one took note of my communication last time. I'll keep that in mind in future articles.

Well, I'm realizing more and more that something is wrong with the cafeteria. I don't want to dwell on the negative sides of things too much, but one has to realize that one cannot even hear oneself think in the lunch room/cafeteria these days. There's too much chatter, everyone appears to be jiggerjabbering, shooting the breeze, laughing it up and then there was the person who kicked the vending machine the other day, having none of that. She/he/it decided to walk in, throw the caferia lady onto the floor, and start violent kicking the ice cream machine (apparently, with all due respect, I must say, this person likes kicking things). I guess this was sometime before Valentine's day. Actually, it was quite a while before Valentine's Day, now that I think about it. The day of the blood drive. Someone from the blood drive walked in with a pint of blood, angrily telling the person to leave the cafeteria since they were disturbing everyone. Well, the person from the blood drive accidentally spilled blood in the ice cream mix, and everyone decided to pass it off as new Valentine's Day flavoring. The faculty decided to make it look a bit more pink so no one would be suspicious. The mix lasted for about a week, then everyone got sick and couldn't come to school for a month.

Trash in the Commons
There's a bit too much trash in the Commons. People seem to not realize that the Commons is not a trash area, but rather a place where people are supposed to be able to sit and enjoy themselves.

Case and point: I've walked into the Commons in the past and a pile of trash and other detritus has been in front of the garbage can. Are these offerings to some strange deity, or are they some sort of signal? I can't decipher the meaning of this. Additionally, while I was pacing around trying to figure out what was going on, someone walked in and started violently kicking the vending machine. Then, Chex Mix started spewing out and flew all over both tables, and I couldn't sit down at either of them. So, I sat in the middle of the floor, and eventually, I was told to go home. I really want these strange events stopped.

Members of the NHS, please change this immediately. This is much more important than going to the Open Door Mission.

Ice Cream.
The Ice Cream at Brownell-Talbot
A great thing of magnificence
The sheer joy and wonder, as I walk
To get my card scanned
And receive a new wooden nickel

I walk over, my heart sinks.
The red light is flashing.
The mix is low, and what's more!
A new person is standing there,
a stranger
Mrs. Dixon has gone
Where? To Where?
Nobody knows, nobody seems to care
This new lady, she lacks feeling

"I'm gonna stand up"
What wonderful words
What wonderful heavenly words
And what can this newcomer perform?
This stranger
All she can say is..."Do you have water, or a pop?"

"Where are my legs today?"
Ah! Amazing! Truly! Poetic!
But this new lady, she just looks at me
With cruel, sneering eyes.
Expecting me to place my wooden nickel
in the jar.

Mrs. Dixon didn't care
She knew how to run that ice cream stand.

And alas, all they have left is chocolate.

BT STUDENTS
No one be mean to anyone else. If youre going to be negative then stay out of it. Lis and I thought this would be a good idea since school is always boring. But don't do anything that people will get in trouble for.
