Gay Daddy

This entry is part 10 of 12 in the series Green Cycle Notebook

Topic of the day was a father being denied his child for being gay:

It’s a hard topic to decide. It’s not normal to be gay so I would probably side with the grandma, but as long as there is no abuse, I can’t see why not. I would predict that the courts would side with the grandma.

William Tell Overture

This entry is part 9 of 12 in the series Green Cycle Notebook

It reminds me of Bambi vs. Godzilla a spoof where there is peaceful music then Bam! Bambi gets squshed by Godzilla. It is sooo funny.

Tough Teachers

This entry is part 8 of 12 in the series Green Cycle Notebook

My mom is picking up my Rollerblades today so soon I’ll be skating to school. The worst teacher I have ever had was Mrs. Higgins, she was such a BITCH. She was like a slave driver in those olden boats where everyone had to row or be whipped. She was intimidating 7’0″ with shoes on (almost). Her big Afro and top set of teeth were a sight compared to Medusa herself. She was such a perfectionist. I have trouble writing and if I didn’t type my reports I would get a C or lower because of it. She didn’t assign much homework but what she did was difficult.

Mrs. Black on the other had was sort of nice but she assigned so much homework and vocab test SHIT! they were hard. We had to memorize dictionary definitions and punctuate them perfect.

The Perfect Teacher

This entry is part 7 of 12 in the series Green Cycle Notebook

You know the perfect teacher would be none at all. Just kidding, the teen-age side of me would say a 22 year old model straight from college who would be very good at teaching all subjects. Mrs Ciota was my favorite teacher partly because she was Looney, or so everyone thought.

I’ve Heard So Many Good Stories

This entry is part 6 of 12 in the series Green Cycle Notebook

I can’t think of one that outshines them all. I go to the Illinois Story Telling Festival every year and there are stories for young and old. A lot of the stories I’ve heard come from family. My dad’s dad was in the Air Force but died before I was born. Some of the best stories and poetry come straight out of my head. That’s something I’d like to do in this class is write poetry.

I Can’t Remember Very Far Back

This entry is part 5 of 12 in the series Green Cycle Notebook

I remember my first day of school. I got my school supplies the night before and before I went to bed that night I paraded around the house in the clothes I was going to wear the next day with my backpack on. The next morning I woke up early and got ready. The bus stopped in front of my house and I can remember my father’s reaction of me going onto the bus. He was smiling a huge smile and waving frantically. I really remember it well because it is one of the only times I can remember our whole family happy.

Charades Joke

This entry is part 3 of 12 in the series Green Cycle Notebook

I have a joke about the William Tell Overture. There were these two guys that loved charades. One went to the others house and saw 8 women back to front. He guessed William Tell Overture…Titty Rump Titty Rump Titty Rump Rump Rump. It brings back memories at grant park when I lived in Oak Park and saw the fireworks. We laid on blankets. The smell of hot dogs + beer blended nicely to make an atmosphere. The end was grand, cannons roaring, fireworks blazing, and it was spectacular. alt : William Tell Overture
