Exciting news. Well, exciting for me. After the read-through for Private Lives, Ms. Russell came into the auditorium, looking confused (as Ms. Russell often does :P) up at the lights. She was like, "I need to redesign the lighting system in here." It turns out that Ms. Simpson wanted her to make a list of all the things we need to fix/add to the auditorium's lighting system, and then send the list to a store in Toronto to get a quote on the upgrade. Then Ms. SImpson's going to go to the board and make a pitch to try to get the funds to go through with the upgrade. So Ms. Russell and I went through everything we needed. And I mean everything. LIke, the best possible job. Here's a list of all the stuff we talked about. Hopefully you'll understand some of what I'm talking about. If not, believe me when I say that it's all really good.
-Moving Front of House lighting bar back and adding two extra circuits on either side
-Adding two Front of House vert bars, each with four circuits, on either side of the stage
-Fixing balcony horizontal bars and putting in 4 circuits on each side
- " " vertical " " " " 1 " " " "
Altogether with what's already there, that would make 56 circuits, up from 24 right now/
-4 Par-Can lamps
-6 new 750w Ellipsoidal Spots
-2 new 1kw Ellipsoidal Spots
Which, combined with what we've got, makes a lot of lights.
-new 56+ set of DMX (digital) dimmers
-new ETC Express DMX (digital) lighting board
Of course, this will probably not happen, since the board is a pack of bitches. But it would be really fucking cool if it did.

Since tomorrow is opposite sex day, I propose that we initiate an orgy of sexually ambiguous glomping and perhaps snogging.
That is all.
I want to try to start some sort of Pagan group type thingie at school, but I'm not sure who to ask for the teacher supervision. There are teachers who are nice enough and everything, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they're very open-minded when it comes to religion and such. Does anyone have any suggestions or any ideas that might help at all?
1)World Religions -- Mr Bullock, Rm 101
3)Canadian Law -- Mr Ainslie, Rm 105
4) Canadian History -- Mr Adams, Rm 101
World Religions seems pretty easy so far. Plus, John Ellis and Katherine are in the class too, and sit infront/behind me. Yay!
Someone asked what 'Exodus' meant, and Mr Bullock kept going on about how it means, "coming out"... so I told John (aka Simple Plan) that I was going to write a book about him called The Exodus of Mr Ellis.
Spare... I don't know why I have a spare. I don't have 20 credits yet ('cause I'm stupid), and I was thinking of putting an English course there, but... I'm not sure. First off, Katherine has the spare with me, so I actually have someone to hang out with during that time, and secondly... It's just relaxing. It calms me down, and I feel less overloaded with it. It really helps lessen the anxiety. I think I may keep it.
Canadian Law is nifty. Dan-O and Amanda are in the class with me, too. We watched a video today... and I fell asleep halfway through it. So, I see drugs, hookers, boobies, hottubs... then I doze off, wake up and see Hitler giving a speech (or just yelling) and Concentration camps. 'Twas very confusing. Amanda filled me in on everything though, so I'm good.
Canadian History. This is my third time in Gr 10 History. The first time, I missed a month of school, and failed with a 45%. Second time: I knew all of the information, had near-perfect marks on all of my tests, but I didn't do my homework/assignments. It was my fault that time. I should've passed that time though. When Ms Irwin asks you to bring in Monty Python's The Meaning of Life for the class to watch... that's an A right there, dammit! Plus, I just didn't like 75% of the students in that class, and I'm not a fan of Ms Irwin's method of teaching. I have Mr Adams now, and he laughed/yelled at me when I told him that PCVS used to have a moat. (Long Story)
So, overall... I have 3 Social Science classes that look pretty easy. They're all on the first floor, too! *dances lazily*
What do *you* have?
P.S. I had the most orgasmic giant chocolate chip cookie from the Caf yesterday. Sooo good.
I saw Dean today and yelled across the hall, 'Dean! Are you RCC?'
He shrugged irritably, 'No, sorry. I'm not a teacher.'
Imagine something like this on the front page, only... well-written and funnier.
Who is _rcc_?: We're *dying* to know!
by Teri Gray
Dozens of LiveJournal users from PCVS have recently discovered a fellow PCVSer on LiveJournal, going by the alias _rcc_.
With only subtle hints from his blog, the classmates are desperately trying to crack the code that is RCC.
"It's very exasperating," said fellow blogger Megan Richardson. "It's like he doesn't want to be found out."
So far, the desperate degenerates have learned that it is a male, who considers himself, 'dark, mysterious' and 'puppy', and has a crush on Kelly Clarkson.
"What good will that do us?" cries PCVSer Katherine Heigh. "I mean, what are we supposed to do? Grab a yearbook and look for someone that apparently has an eyebrow ring that looks dark and mysterious?"
Apparently, yes. With nothing better to do, the students have grabbed their yearbooks from under their beds, out of boxes, and out of the trash to look for a guy who seems 'puppyish'.
Has anybody made a guess as to who it could be? Bethany Williams has.
'I have a few guesses, and I know one of them has to be right. It's narrowed down to: Dean Shamess, Rob Sangster-Poole, Dylan Wales or Mr Latham.'
Will the mystery of _rrc_ ever be solved?
On behalf of the PCVS bloggers, I hope so.
It's been a while, but here's more news on the newspaper club!
At the beginning of the term, we are going to make a full-hearted (and timely!) attempt at a school newspaper. We ask that any wishing to apply submit a 250-300 word article on the topic of their choice, preferably the topic they wish to focus on for the duration of the newspaper (i.e. sports, gossip, advice, what have you), to either Mat Adams (xpertblade16 AT hotmail DOT com) or me, Harleigh Shaw (monkeyinthe_unionjackthong AT hotmail DOT com).
A meeting time will be arranged to discuss the newspaper prototype to be presented to the principal, during which we will all cross our fingers and hope for the best. If finger crossing elicits positive results, then we will officially have a newspaper club. At that point, things like meeting times, deadlines, and distribution schedules will be discussed.
Also note that photographers will also be greatly appreciated, especially the multi-talented type that would be willing writers as well. Editing and other more vague jobs to be discussed at a later date.
Leave a comment or drop either of us an e-mail if there are any questions!
