Hey, it’s okay…

…..To make your life sound a lot more interesting to your hairdresser.

As I predicted, an interesting first week of term #4…

So on Tuesday, this kids walks into the gymn for PE.  Mr. Ford, my teacher, wasn’t in there yet.  So the kid walks up to me with a friend and says “Are you the gymn teacher?” 

What.

I smiled and said, “Yes. I’m the gymn teacher.”
        “What are we doing today?”
        “We’ll talk about that later but right now you’re going to get on the floor and give me 50 push ups.”

Horrified, he looked at his friend. I smirked and said, “I’m SIXTEEN.” And walked away. He was stunned.  But I guess he got over his embarrassment and now he always calls me “teach.” 

I don’t think he has any idea what my real name is.

Also, rehearsals this week have been interesting.  One of my lines is “Liesl, will you give us a do?”  But I was thinking of the do and I ended up saying, “Diesel, will you give us a lo?”   Better yet, my director’s name is Mrs. Lowe.  So yeah.

 

In other news, Peter DeWolfe is amazing.

Crappy Balloon Art.

(We have four rehearsals left of The Sound of Music at my school and so things have been super frantic.  But I promise a real post ASAP.  For now, enjoy a demonstration of the extent of my skill with balloon sculpting.)

Me: “A thousand daisies?”

D: “Yes.:

Me: “I’m blogging that.”

A very interesting start to what’s bound to be a very interesting new term.

So my first term started last Friday.   First off, let me explain the situation: Exams for third term wre Wednesday and Thursday, we had the first day of the new term Friday, and now we have Spring Break until Monday.  So naturally, half the school skipped on Friday.

I, unfortunately, was not one of those people.

My first hour, choir, didn’t change. Except we got a new song.  And it’s totally strange.  To start, it’s named “Las Amarillas.”  The Yellows? Here are the lyrics.  The song’s originally in Spanish, but this is a translation:

The yellow larks fly from their cactuses
No longer will the cardinals sing happily
na-na-na
and na-na-no

The trees on the hillside, since they haven’t revived
For this the larks sing, or the nest hold them down
na-na-na
and na-na-no

You are little and beautiful, and the way you are, I love you
You look like a little rose from the shores of Guerrero
with your na-na-na
and na-na-no

My father was a sparrowhawk and I was born to peck and peck
Where I place my beak, I’m like a trumpeter
na-na-na
and na-na-no

Everyone has their farewells, but none
is like this one. 

Four times five is twenty,
three times seven is twenty-one.

Yeah, you read that right.  Multiplication!  The last verse is multiplication tables!!  Oh, I don’t understand, either.  And you know how directors sometimes have notes along with the song to tell you how each bit is meant to be sung? Continue reading

Things I do not understand and am definitely not going to talk about.

  • the word “Pampers” always makes Deanna giggle.
  • How I turned out to be a morning person.
  • Madonna’s bra.
  • The word “snooze.”
  • These shoes.
  • Combovers.
