Indescribable Annoyance

Terribly useless..
Efforts prove useless, the dumb stay dumb, and the
Smart stay smart.
Toilsome affairs.

I had a to do a practice FCAT test today. It was infuriating to no end, what with its IDIOTIC stories and idiotic questions and dreadfully dull written responses. One passage dealt with Reggie Jackson and it made me particularly full of rage.. It grew to the point where it was painfully hard to not write the most biting, sarcastic comments about the comparison between "the young and older Reggie Jackson." Even the name Reggie was as an irritant to my brain and I grew to a terrible point of passive aggression*.

I hate those standardized tests. I feel like they're aiming the questions at a lower life form, they're so simple.

Ray Russell wrote a post-apocalyptic story of a woman typing her diary on a broken typewriter where the letter S didn't work. It was called "Xong of Xuxan." Very interesting.
