The next time he gives you too much homework say "I didn't realize this was a sad occassion." Or pretend you're reading a book out loud and say "Well young lady, have you been good to your mother?" Or better yet say the 2nd one to a friend as you walk into class.
No it's not a snicket book club. It's just an advertising group for an economics class and they keep making lemony snicket names for stuff. But I don't go to that school anymore. Even if there aren't any snickety people besides you in your school tocuna VFD still runs it.
I have to wonder if my teacher has read ASoUE. She'd probably like the books, so perhaps I should mention them someday. Recently, there don't seem to have been any VFD coincidences. However, I'm trying to read Herman Melville's The Confidence Man, which is supposedly connected to book 12. It's quite confusing, but I'll keep trying.
In other news, I have a vague memory of reading some book containing the phrase "he was very fond of demons", talking about a magician. And I was just visiting my guidance counselor, whose office contains a scarecrow-looking doll, which has a dress that reads "Crows are my Friends".
Today my English teacher was giving us instructions for writing essays, and he used the term "red herring" to describe a type of fallacious arguement. Here are his words, as I copied them down: "This is what we call, logically, a red herring. Your assumption is the same as your conclusion, there's no logical growth". Then he said, out of nowhere, "Anyone got a match and lighter fluid". And I just realized, he was wearing a medium-length beige coat.
Over a year ago, I was in my backyard and saw a heart-shaped balloon drifting off into the sunset. It might have had a happy face on it like the ones carried by the Volunteers, but it was too far away to easily tell.
I made a sculpture of a mushroom in ceramics class and gave it to the teacher so it would be put into the kiln, but now it's nowhere to be found. I'd painted it gray and black like the Medusoid Mycelium.

In my sketchbook, I drew all of Olaf's disguises, as well as the theatre troupe, some villains and Carmelita Spats. The day I had to hand in my sketchbook, a vague friend wanted to borrow it to look through, and soon a whole party of vague friends was looking through the Olafs and loving them. They said I should have drawn my Theatre troupe as "that same guy".

I spotted this headline in the paper:
Farm family targeted by arsonists
The subtitle turned out to be, interestingly enough,
Barn Blaze Victim: 'I didn't have any enimies until that day, but I've got one now'
Also, I watched Batman Returns last night, and the character Christopher Walken plays in it reminded me of Count Olaf (pinstripey suit, odd grey hair, creepy stance) and the Penguin's minions reminded me of the Theatre Troupe. There was a very fat person (male, however) and two ladies, one who slightly resembled a Powder Twin from the Marvelous Marriage picture, and she had a pale face and a little white dog.
