Happy Teachers' Day, to all the teachers on my Friends List, and I know there're at least five of you. *smiles* It wasn't until I was sixteen that I met the teachers who I know changed my life. I know it can seem like you aren't making a difference, but as a student to some of the most fabulous teachers I know, might I tell you that you are, even if you can't see it? That for me, my teachers made me want to come to school. For the first time in my life I looked forward to every single day I had their lessons. And I wholeheartedly blame them for making me fall in love with History and Literature, and making me realize just how much difference there is between doing what you love and learning to love what you do.

I apologise for the fact that the images that follow will make most sense to anyasy, risax, clinquant, c_dreamcatcher, aingeal_isilme and la_muerta. But everyone is is welcome to take a look at what my junior college teachers are capable of. *evil grin* Many thanks to risax for contributing to the pictures, and to aingeal_isilme and la_muerta for being subjected to the videos. XD All interested can ask for downloads from risax and I, for we have

1. Mr. Cook as John Lennon in a pool of hippies, singing "Imagine".

With a wig.

Like so:

2. Mr. Teo (yes, anyasy) as the Biggest Fanboy In Leather I have ever seen. Unfortunately I was unable to get a video of him falling to his knees and worshipping a teacher who rode onstage with a motorcycle, but I do have a fantastic video of him in a leather jacket, doing a great air guitar act.

Mr. Teo does fabulous "SQUEE!!".

3. Said Rock and Roll God of a motorcycle-riding teacher's "I Can't Get No Satisfaction" rendition.

4. Mr. Cook manhandling a protestor. Most efficient manhandling I have ever captured on film. risax got a fantastic shot:

I only got it in live-action.

5. Rock and Roll God riding motorcycle offstage. I love my teachers.

6. VJC Teachers Doing the Full Monty. To "Hot Stuff". Suffice to say at Mr. Ixer's performance will be restricted to video download only. Also watched my Math tutor, who is very much like a slightly-more-outspoken version of the Peter Parker Tobey Maguire portrays, only he likes LOTR (<3 MUCH), unknot his tie, whirl it over his head and send it flying into the audience. Then do the same with his shirt.

Now, if you please, imagine this for a row of say ten teachers.

Suffice to say that I am completely incapable of recognising a pelvic thrust until I've seen it several times. Perhaps it's just that I'd never thought my teachers capable of it.

And if you ever wanted to see Peter Parker str -

Suffice to say that the video recieved a Professor Rating of:

7. Some serious Saturday Night Fever action.

Observe Mr. Cook with a sieve upon his head.

The three men who changed my life with History, Literature, and Economics.

And a whole lot of snark, from the last one there.

risax tells me this was a Marlene Dietrich impersonation.

I admit I took this picture simply because I wanted to see THAT PE teacher in a shirt like THAT:

Mr. Harris as Elvis.

Mr Lofthouse as Elvis:

Cook with a Truncheon!

Starring Guess Who as the Coconut Tree.

I just wanted a photograph of a PE teacher in PINK.

Never thought of our SM as one who'd sing "I Will Survive".

Dear God, a sane photograph?

Also Mr. Harris as Elvis.

You know, Chris, the girl in the photos with you, I think she was my photography senior in RGS. Who is she again?

You're right! She was in Photograph Society! She's risax. *smiles*

>.< I should go back to school one of these days... Maybe next Tuesday.
1st-Sep-2004 05:53 pm (UTC)
*hugs* Going back to school is good. I like my teachers better out of school than I did when I was in school, and that's saying a lot. XD *hugs you*

STAY AWAKE ^_____^

I hear you. I suffered a lot of bullying from the age of 7 to 11. And, particularly post-11, it was my teachers that kept me going to school. There were days I was terrified to get on that bus, because knew when I got there I'd get jibes and jeers and snide remarks, and that if I was lucky. But then I'd remember I had English, or History, or French, or Drama (best of all), and I'd force myself to close my ears and just get there all the same, because those teachers made it worth it.

/angsty praise-to-teachers rant

*hugs you* *comforts* I know what you mean. *GLARES at everyone who was evil to you* *sics badfic! writers on them* Teachers like that make you want to get up and go to school. *hugs you tight* I'm so sorry to hear about what you had to go through. And I'm so glad that your teachers were there to make going to school worthwhile. *hugs you again*

Angsty praise-to-teachers rants are the best. They're real. *hugs you*

Looks like an interesting day - so what is Teachers Day all about? It's something that we obviously don't have here...
1st-Sep-2004 05:57 pm (UTC)
The UK and Australia don't seem to have Teacher's Day. My British friends had no idea it existed, either. *grin* It's a day when we celebrate our teachers. Most schools have student performances for the teachers, but my junior college tradition is to have teachers perform for the students. XD Teacher's Day itself is a school holiday for schools which celebrate it, which are the primary schools to the junior colleges, so you get a holiday right about there every year until you go to university. It rocks. The students give teachers presents and the day before Teacher's Day is a half-day celebration. XD

Which means, give me presents you must, Padawan!


Am in airport lounge waiting for plane to place that is NOT SYDNEY *CRIES HARD*.
1st-Sep-2004 06:01 pm (UTC)
Wah! Not Sydney! *wails*

I'll send you presents, master! Would you like a new light sabre? Or perhaps a new brown robe?


I hope you find internet in Melbourne so you can keep us all updated!
1st-Sep-2004 06:07 pm (UTC)
I just want to see my PADAWAN. *CLINGS*

I hope so too! XD But Father is in Melbourne too, so that will be difficult XD But I will TRY. *evilness*

*frown* why is there no picture? i want to see picture *wibble*
1st-Sep-2004 05:52 pm (UTC)
PHOTOBUCKET EVIL! Is all right now, though.

*hugs you tight* You feeling better? Get lots of rest and take care of yourself! *CLINGS* *WORRIES* *sets mildlyinsane on you*
1st-Sep-2004 10:31 pm (UTC)
a little ^^ napped a bit today *cough* not that the second nap was my idea... overslept the alarm but got up in time for dinner anyhow so no loss *grin*

... and why is everyone siccing omi on me... O.o considering there's really not much she can do? *grin*

am feeling vaguely traumatized by your pictures though.... *cough* but not for the reasons you would imagine. I almost thought I saw one of my friends in your picture and he IS a teacher and I DO have a friend who's teaching in VJ then realized that it's someone else but really... >< OMG i'm old....
1st-Sep-2004 07:56 am (UTC)
I see no pictures. Nonetheless, the descriptions alone make me BURN to have BEEN there, damn you school!!!1

I should have gone into Arts, shouldn't I? T_T
1st-Sep-2004 05:50 pm (UTC)
*CRIES* Photobucket is EVIL. However, it seems to be all right now. *hopes*

I have VIDEOS! If we meet up, I can show them to you! You might catch some of your teachers up to Deeply Ridiculous Things!

Am in airport lounge waiting for flight to Melbourne. XDDDD
1st-Sep-2004 05:51 pm (UTC)
AND YES YOU SHOULD HAVE GONE INTO ARTS. Then we would have been in the same faculty!

AND I WANT TO SHOW YOU VIDEOS. Some of them will burn your eyes out. They did, for mine. XD
1st-Sep-2004 06:40 pm (UTC) - *STARES AT PHOTOS*

Did VJ get even MORE INSANE when I left? This is MOST UNFAIR. XDXDXD I sadly suspect I forgot a lot of the teachers who didn't actually teach me, and that anyway, science teachers are not so crazy. ... But I definitely remember the PE teacher in pink!

Yes! We must meet so I can see these videos~! And have a good time in Melbourne. XD
1st-Sep-2004 08:42 pm (UTC)
Showed idiot Ambrose the pictures and he said that Cook looked like a sugar daddy in the photo that he took with us...


2nd-Sep-2004 08:27 pm (UTC)

Why did they never have such visible, photographable, videoable insanity when we were there?! We demand replays and encores to satisfy our trauma-deprived JC years!

Harris as Elvis is OUCH MY EYES. *claws eyes out*

Who's the very gay looking teacher in the shiny sequin-y Forever Fever shirt?
