... state that you are going to "post that on my blog"
That one reader out there that knows where my kids attend school will probably confirm that it is in fact a geek school... for the rest of you, I could completely make shit up to convince you... but I don't have to!
The school won a math award, a rather prestigious math award... and so... the school motto for games and stuff is "Mean and Green" -- well since 'mean' is also a math term... and can be communicated in writing (as a formula) and green can be communicated in writing as a gamma wave... they have t-shirts that say in math/science speak "Mean and Green" -- tell me that's not geeky!! (ps - I own and wear mine proudly)
also... they were featured on a South Park, okay featured is an exaggeration, but they were on SP -- the SP kids came to Denver to play basketball against our school and the kids from our school were on the court with their TI-87(or whatever designation) calculators calculating their shots, lol. I actually haven't seen the episode, only heard about it -- I have tried looking for it and cannot find it, if anyone knows which episode I would love to know at least what season it was.
Many of the students also post this on their myspace... (it changes some each year, and I am not posting the complete list)
You know you go to (Insert name of Geek School here)
Your definition of having a social life is hanging out with your friends to have a study group
You don't have a social life in the summer either
You regularly stay up till 2 or 3 in the morning and then get up at 5:30 and call it a good night's sleep
If you have a B average you are in the lower quarter of your class and consider yourself to be the stupidest person alive
The "bad kids" are the ones who ditch activity period a couple times
The coolest kids have straight A's and are in mathletes
If you're not at least one year ahead in math you are a loser
The senior pranks always suck because the administration has no sense of humor
You drink 2 or 3 coffees a day and finish it off with a red bull
If the teacher doesn't teach you anything you actually get angry and demand to be transferred to a different teacher...and of course no one listens to you
Every single person in the school has either a TI-83 or a TI-84 calculator (well duh! there all in algebra by at least 8th grade, and then you're on the stupider end)
If you get a C you start to worry that the only college that will accept you is community college... and even then it's a stretch
The senior privilege that you look forward to the most is being able to cut in the lunch line (o baby! I've been waiting for that since I was a sevie!)
You're a slave to P-E-A.
You know just how many problems are on a problem set sheet.
You dreaded going to the library because of the half hour lecture explaining
How to use Gale and EBSCO. Every. Damn. Time.
The cast of the musical included several football players.
You won any sort of sportsmanship award.
You know what goes in and what goes out... (Say it!)...WATER WATER!!!!
You took Photo just to be able to screw around.
You know exactly why fysics is phun.
Any of your teachers joked about sending you across the street for
You're certain your ACT scores will be the best in the state. Again.
Another semester means your term paper is 500 words longer.
You've rebelled by getting something from the vending machine between the
hours of 7:30 am and 2:30 pm.
You learned someone else's student ID to see their grades.
You sing along to twinkle, twinkle little star, voltage equals I times R.
You loathe any form of standardized testing.
You actually went to after prom.
You had to get your planner signed to go to the freaking bathroom.
You ever came straight from football practice to marching band practice.
Instead of taking all art classes your senior year like "normal high school students" you continue to take every AP class possible, and throw in some classes given by UCD just to be sure you have plenty of college credit, before you actually go to college.
The only reason you dressed up for pirate day was so you could wear a bandana and ripped clothing.
I love geek school -- my daughter who is now in College took what I thought was going to be a brutal schedule for a freshman, she is bored to tears, is always done with exams and homework way before her friends, and has too much time on her hands... I'm proposing she double her credit hours next semester, save me some money on something by finishing early!
