There's a hotel RIGHT by my school. I'm forgetting one, but here's my elaborate one: Gregor anwhistle may have come from Gregor Mendel, the guy who discovered genetics using peas. A parent of Gregor on the lsua family tree is D, D is also the first initial of another science figure, Dmitri Mendeleev, whose last name is just 3 letters different than gregor's. Dmitri formed the periodic table, strange huh?

I saw a lot of crows flying around during a thunderstorm the other night, and it was very superlative. Also, today I took the Texas Music Teachers' Association Music Theory Test, and my room monitor was Oriental with an accent, and she ended lots of her sentences with "please" i.e., "We need one more student fo the bonus question, please" or "Turn in your tests any time, please." I couldn't see her left ankle, though.
It a big old yellowish brownish house. (If memory serves right.) It's a museum now, it has all the old furniture and stuff still in it. I would tell you where it was, but i don't want everyone knowing what town i live in. I'll tell you if you PM me though.
When my school did Halloween dress-up last Friday, I saw a boy wearing a curly white wig, just like the one that Olaf's bald henchman wore in TMM and THH. However, he didn't have a surgical mask, overalls, or pots and pans. I think he was wearing a blue jacket, and I have no idea what he was supposed to be. But he looked Flacutono-esque in the wig.
Oh that reminds me: On halloween a girl came trick or treating dressed as a doctor with nothing but red scrubs and a surgical mask to indicate what she was. Very HHesque.
I also saw a tall teenage boy dressed in a similar costume, before I went out to trick-or-treat. And there seem to be a lot of crows around here; recently I was down at the end of my street and they all flew above me in a huge swarm, cawing like mad. It was creepy.
In my lit class I'm now reading the Edgar Allan Poe story "The Fall of the House of Usher". It's very creepy and confusing, but cool. Toward the end, I found the phrase "her violent and now final death-throes." Wonder if the original Mr. Poe was a VFDer...
