More “Kids Rewriting History”:

Abraham Lincoln became America’s greatest Precedent. Lincoln’s

mother died in infancy, and he was born in a log cabin which

he built with his own hands. Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves

by signing the Emasculation Proclamation. On the night of April

14, 1865, Lincoln went to the theater and got shot in his seat

by one of the actors in a moving picture show. They believe

the assinator was John Wilkes Booth, a supposingly insane

actor. This ruined Booth’s performing career.

Johann Bach wrote a great many musical compositions which

produced a large number of children. In between he practiced on

an old spinster which he kept up in his attic. Bach died from

1750 to the present. Bach was the most famous composer in the

world and so was Handel. Handel was half German, half Italian,

and half English. He was very large.

Beethoven wrote music even though he was deaf. He was so deaf he

wrote loud music. He took long walks in the forest even when

everyone was calling for him. Beethoven expired in 1827 and

later died for this.

The nineteenth century was a time of a great many thoughts and

inventions. People stopped reproducing by hand and started

reproducing by machine. The invention of the steamboat caused

a network of rivers to spring up. Cyrus McCormick invented the

McCormick raper, which did the work of a hundred men. Louis

Pasteur discovered a cure for rabbits. Charles Darwin was a

naturalist who wrote the Organ of the Species. Madman Curie

discovered the radio. And Karl Marx became one of the Marx

I just had to share these, for those that don’t get “Joke a Day”. I’m so amused.

Ancient Egypt was inhabited by mummies and they all wrote in

hydraulics. They lived in the Sarah Dessert. The climate of the

Sarah is such that all the inhabitants have to live elsewhere.

Moses led the Hebrew slaves to the Red Sea where they made

unleavened bread, which is bread made without any ingredients.

Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the ten commandments. He

died before he ever reached Canada.

Solomon had three hundred wives and seven hundred porcupines.

The Greeks were a highly sculptured people, and without them we

wouldn’t have history. The Greeks also had myths. A myth is

a female moth.

Socrates was a famous Greek teacher who went around giving people

advice. They killed him. Socrates died from an overdose of wedlock.

After his death, his career suffered a dramatic decline.

In the Olympic games, Greeks ran races, jumped, hurled biscuits,

and threw the java.

Julius Caesar extinguished himself on the battlefields of Gaul.

The Ides of March murdered him because they thought he was

going to be made king. Dying, he gasped out: “Tee hee, Brutus.”

Joan of Arc was burnt to a steak and was canonized by Bernard Shaw.

Queen Elizabeth was the “Virgin Queen.” As a queen she was a

success. When she exposed herself before her troops they all

shouted “hurrah.”

It was an age of great inventions and discoveries. Gutenberg

invented removable type and the Bible. Another important

invention was the circulation of blood. Sir Walter Raleigh

is a historical figure because he invented cigarettes and started

smoking. Sir Francis Drake circumsized the world with a 100-foot


The greatest writer of the Renaissance was William Shakespeare.

He was born in the year 1564, supposedly on his birthday. He never

made much money and is famous only because of his plays. He wrote

tragedies, comedies, and hysterectomies, all in Islamic pentameter.

Romeo and Juliet are an example of a heroic couple. Romeo’s last

wish was to be laid by Juliet.

Writing at the same time as Shakespeare was Miguel Cervantes. He

wrote Donkey Hote. The next great author was John Milton. Milton

wrote Paradise Lost. Then his wife died and he wrote Paradise

Which is my favourite Star Wars movie?

IV: A New Hope — It doesn’t have the “oomph” of the other two classic trilogy films.

V: The Empire Strikes Back — What’s not to love about this movie?

VI: Return of the Jedi — my second favourite. It was the ewoks that demoted it.

I: The Phantom Menace — Jake Lloyd and Jar Jar Binks. Case closed.

II: Send in the Clones! — Kill me now

What is the Chosen eating utensil of the Gods, according to Priscilla?




Spork — easily the greatest piece of silverware, but pales in comparison with chopsticks.

Chopsticks — Don’t you remember the debate over this with the PDM? Chopsticks are the chosen eating utensil.

What is Priscilla’s favourite type of poetry to overuse?

rhyming humor (like “Dischord of the Rings”) — my favourite to write, but not to overuse.

non-rhyming, deep, introspective poetry — I loathe this medium.

e. e. cummings-ish stuff — okay, but I’ve never written it myself.

dirty limericks — I love limericks, but they’re all clean, thank you very much.

haiku — any RMLer should know this. Percy knows how many haiku parties I’ve tried to initate.

What is Priscilla’s favourite Beatles CD?

Sgt. Pepper — this was my favourite for ages, but it was usurped by Abbey Road.

White Album — a close second

Abbey Road — I couldn’t last a week without listening to this CD. I adore this music. I wake up to this music. I often drive with this music. Abbey Road.

Let it Be — my third favourite. I love the late Beatles work. Puzzling that the Fab Four hated this one.

One — I don’t even own it.

What CD has Priscilla been overplaying recently?

Let it Be — I overplayed it a few weeks ago.

White Album — overplayed during the summer, then during my Digital Imaging class.

Running With Scissors — could never be overplayed

Jekyll and Hyde — Haven’t you seen the references in my LiveJournal? I listen to this while driving about 97% of the time, then frequently play it while CGing.

a burned CD of my in-progress “Men at Arms” stuff — at the time this test was written, this didn’t exist. I just burned a copy of “Whatever Happened to Honor” at my mom’s request.

I am so amused by Stupid Translator. I love you, Ann.

Ampere-hour, communicated no miracle Monica not on ” the unconscious Argentinier ” for the last seven years. It received a LiveJournal .

LOTR letter: Samwise Gamgee ! I am Samwsie Gamgee the main header bit. I am to be had rather lucky, crappy a part to follow ass of the wood Elijah around the sentence for fifteen months and each coffee get.

LOTR sort: Eleven ! I am eleven, like Legolas or Arwen. Prance I around in the forests and in in the morning with one with nature. I have ears and people also measure-formed to give me merry of views.

Flehen it on! Renata bloglayout a new! And it is rosafarben!


The Jesuit Spring Play is going to be a stage version of St-Exupery’s “The Little Prince”. And to think I was getting excited over the prospect of “Arsenic and Old Lace”, one of my all-time favourite plays.

Good lord. Are there even any women in that show? I know there aren’t any in the book. We read it last year in French class, which destroyed the book for me. Ugh. I know I should at least give the English translation a second chance, but it brings back bad memories of French III. A bit like how I get squeamish around all Tolkien novels. So many of my friends love it, but I really dislike that book. Hiss. Oh well. I guess it’s better than trying out for the Hockaday/St. Marks production. I’ve mentally forgiven him, but I’m still not incredibly fond of Mr. Blaydes, the Hockaday/St. Marks drama director. Mrs. Felice, on the other hand, I love.

The Hockaday production for the Spring is “The Twelfth Night”, which I got to see performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company on my trip to England last summer. I loved it. In fact, it remained on my brain to the extent that the night after, I dreamed a Harry Potter/12th Night crossover. Of course, one must remember that unless one is a senior, one has no chance in Hades at getting a good role in a Hockaday production. I’d like to see Olivia Jennings as Olivia. Muaha. Cesario would be such an amusing role, especially speaking as one who spent most of her youth playing boy’s roles in theatre productions. Oh well. I’m sure Jesuit will be fun. It always is!

LOTR Character: Samwise Gamgee! I am Samwsie Gamgee the Hobbit. I’m quite happy to have a crappy part following Elijah Wood’s arse around the set for fifteen months and fetching everyone’s coffee.

LOTR Species: Elf! I am an Elf, like Legolas or Arwen. I prance around in forests and am at one with nature. I also have malformed ears and people give me funny looks.

LOTR Place: Rivendell! I would stay in Rivendell where I would hide away from the rest of the world and often attack visitors and relatives with mighty floods in the shape of horses, or at least computer graphics. But everyone would like me anyway (naturally) because I have good taste in decorating.

LOTR Actor: Sir Ian McKellen! I am Sir Ian McKellen, and everybody BETTER remember it! I prance around for most of the film in a stupid hat, much like my last movie blockbuster, although the hat is now slightly better.
