Sound Destruction: I WOULD HAVE BEEN RICH!

this pisses me off...
Under a new plan, a student who misses not a single day per quarter will receive $25 in an account - redeemable upon graduation. In doing so, the school joins a number of districts throughout the country turning to incentives to boost test scores, GPAs, and student turnout.

so here is what bothers me...

I was super-nerd in high school and actually got a plaque my senior year for showing up every single day of my high school career and never saw one penny.


(by the way...receiving that award in front of the whole school was just about the most embarrassing thing that could happen to a long-haired-skater-metal-head in 1992.)

btw did anyone else tag all their notebooks with anthrax, metallica, rush and ozzy logos in high school? I loved sitting in science class trying to replicate the intricacies of the led zeppelin logo.

first of all, why aren't you sleeping yet nerdboy.
I almost with you on the not missing days in school. I only missed the ones that fell on Jewish holidays.
To this day I still have some notebooks and folders with band names on them but mine also contained Depeche Mode and The Cure. I wrote then on my hands too to distract the teachers from the test answers I wrote in between Metallica

And...I would like to say i had long hair but it was a mix between an afro-mullet and Robert Smith in the front. that's the only way my hair grew up and frizzy, not even the best relaxers helped. Now, I'm almost fucking bald on top and still afro-frizzy on the side almost like Krusty the Clown. In other words, I have horns

Mine had all sorts of thrash and death metal logos. My musical tastes ranged from goth to brutal death metal back then. I definately prefered the heavy stuff in '92.

Let me think here...1992...aside from the weird religious bands I always was into at the time (Deliverance, Tourniquet, Vengeance, etc.), my favorites were Anthrax, Testament, Overkill, Celtic Frost, Bolt-Thrower, Obituary, Sepultura. Exodus, Suicidal Tendencies, Pantera, Sacred Reich, GWAR, etc.

Basically, anything that wasn't grunge. If the popular kids liked it, that was my cue to avoid it like herpes.

Strider is lying. He has a tatoo of Michael Bolton's face on his ass.

Bunch of metal heads here. For me REM, Information Society, Jesus and Mary Chain. A lot of mainstream stuff.

I did not have perfect attendance. School sucked balls and I weasled out whenever I could get up the nerve and forge my dad's signature on the sick note. Got busted once, last month of senior year in high school. But I was on honor roll!

Alice - yep, Strider (my brother) actually gets the credit for creating this blog. I'm like Julie the cruise director around here, the "hostess with the mostess", though I have my Issac the bartender moments and serve up a few good ones myself. Wow, what's with me and the Love Boat analogies?

As for 1992, that was the year before I got engaged and 2 years before I got married. If memory serves, I was morning the loss of hair bands then.

I was never cool. Glad that's off my chest. Hope you guys don't think of me differently now.

Oooh! A whole $25 for not skipping any school days!

Ah, no thanks.. Taking a few days off every now and then was worth way more than $25 to me.

sar is the hostess with the mostess, no doubt.

Doug - Didn't you know -- intellect usurps high school coolness any day.

TLM - Perfect attendance is admirable, but it doesn't stop my family's annual spring vacation to Aruba. Life happens.

Nedhead - *blushing* Aw, thanks Nedhead. :)
