Damn! I think the best name we had was Bungay. Obviously there is only so much you can do with that.

Our principle was BJ Bentley though. That was always useful.

Wow, this post is serving no purpose. Uh. Primary school in New Zealand was good! Actually, not really. Despite doing a year more than Australia, when I came here, I felt everyone was ahead of where we'd been in New Zealand.

But back when I was at primary school, the Kapiti Coast was the sticks, moreso than it is now.

Okay, they win.

There was a music teacher called Mr Condon, too... I'm sure you can all guess where that one went.

He was a strange little man, too. BIIIIG Toto fan.

CAPTIVE.

Oh, that reminds me! One of the guys in line to be the next principal had the last name of Dick.

I'm actually surprised we didn't make more of that than we did. We'd just remark "what a horrible last name" and leave it at that, really. I guess it was just too easy a target.

I don't know anyone who's actually seen Captive, but from all accounts it was fucking awful. How can such fantastic music be connected to such a horrible film?

More to the point, did Edge actually think the film was good?

Heh. One year we had a female music teacher who was hot but everyone noticed had a moustache.

Holy shit those were funny classes.

One year we had an older guy who apparently was an NZ Commonwealth games weightlifter years and year ago. He was so old school, it was awesome.

We played chess in his classroom at lunch. One time i said fuck really loud in a dead silent room and he didn't bat an eye.

We also threw all sorts of shit into the ceiling because it was some spongy type of panelling. One of my mates won when he landed a weight he nicked from science in the ceiling with a long string hanging from it.

And my geography teacher in my last year, there was a funny man. The entire class all we usually did was listen to music and roughly discuss geography. He swore regularly and you got a good hit on the knuckles if you didn't do your homework.

I loved that during assessments he "thought out loud" on the board to direct us as to what to write to pass the assignment. And come the end of the year, i had failed one assessment (ok, i hadn't handed it in) and did really well in another. When he came to confirm the marks with me it said i had passed both on the same level. I pointed it out to him and he said it would even out if we left it.


Fuck, that's a long post.

I'm being far too productive today. One load of washing's done, another's on, and I've vacuumed. What next? I'll actually do the ironing?

We had an ancient substitute teacher who was in his 70s... he was supposed to teach us Indonesian occasionally but instead he told us probably apocryphal stories about WWII or whatever happened to take his fancy. That was cool.

Hah, really? I haven't even heard any accounts of Captive. To me it's almost like only the soundtrack happened. By the sounds of it, perhaps that would've been better!

I love Rowena's Theme so much. You guys might want to look out for at least a bit of it tomorrow ...

We had two hilarious substitute teachers.

One was an older guy, straight out of a private school in the 1950s, surely.

And other guy who was fat and a miserable bastard who got nicknamed the walrus.

We had this female English teacher who everybody thought was hot (I can't say I paid much attention to my teachers in that way) until they discovered she was a bitch and then opinion turned.

I, for the record, don't think she was a bitch. She was just good at owning people when they broke the rules. Which included me one day when she discovered I was drawing maps in my English book rather than doing some boring poetry-related task ...

That's great. So were your other stories. I had one great teacher - the one I met up with - who was getting pissed off with the state curriculum being useless. There was one unit he didn't want to teach and had a better idea of something more useful instead. He said he was tempted to write our essays for us - he only had to submit five for external verification, one for each grade. He knew our writing styles and could've easily faked essays, and he was going to just give us our average mark. As it turned out, he did teach the unit with his own spin on it, partly because I wanted to do it and told him as much, but I have to wonder if he's actually pulled that trick since I left ...

High school in Australia: Good. Ended up having far too much focus on performing arts and sport though, which meant that I the academic debater got shafted and fucked around a bit.
