The laughable part is that dux was NOT actually determined by your final grades in year 12, since the school's presentation night was held before the Queensland state studies board published the final results. Plus I think there were politics at play in the choices anyway. So despite the fact I had the top marks in my grade, the girl in second place got dux. Fucking arse-backwards, but I don't care too much since I got the awards I actually wanted. All you got for dux was a trophy you had to give back a year later!
Is dux like a valedictorian?

Ashley, congrats on forming a sentence that's never been uttered, ever, by anyone.

There's a distinct feel to Dislocated Day and The Moon Touches Your Shoulder that are different from the rest of the album. It flows well overall, but there's something different on those two.

Yep.

Just to make it even more bizarre, we had somebody give a valedictory address ... and it was neither the dux, because she was shit at public speaking (or anything other than inserting numbers into mathetical and scientific formulas), nor me, because they knew any speech I'd give would be full of backhanded compliments and subtle insults. Instead, one of our items of assessment in grade 12 English was to actually write a valedictory address and they picked the one they liked the most.

I was quite taken aback by that as well. It's the kind of absurdism that Woody Allen himself would be proud of.

How about Ian's sentence from last night?

I just sat in a corner with my laptop and headphones and chilled with some Dr. Pepper. It was quite relaxing

Our valedictorian is going to be a pale kid who never sees the light of day (pale for that reason, not because he's albino or really Irish) who is a year younger than us and skipped eighth grade. He also has a beard, large, frazzled hair, and shirts that don't fit him.

I wish I was making this up.

I did not see that, but, yeah, that's rather impressive. Ashley's reflects something that really happened to her, though, which makes it real. Real real. On the real.

I don't give a flying fuck about mine. I do alright, that's all anyone needs to know.

There was a kid who graduated this year who looked like Taj Mowry from "Smart Guy."

This kid tops it.
