Ghost Dentures Is Back

Took the SAT IIs this morning, and I think they went alright.

The 5:40 am wake-up time was pretty bad, but it was easily the worst part of the whole experience. The drive down was fine, if a little snowy, and Tech high school was easy to find.

I was suprised by how down in the mouth everyone looked when I got in. Everyone else looked either terrified or pissed off, and for some reason this cheered me up. I began to whistle "Baby Elephant Walk."

We had some down time in the cafeteria waiting for everyone to show up. I spent this time constructing the following demographic chart of the test-takers this morning.
Margain of error: +/- one black kid.

When the clock struck 8, we SAT II kids walked over to our own room. I got a good desk and looked around at my fellow testees: an enormous jock wearing a ball cap, an asian girl checking her make-up, a 6-2 tomboy with curly blonde hair, an effete little nerd doing some last minute cramming for the Literature test, and the rest. The proctor went mercifully quickly through the instructions, then sent us on our way. After one test a few people left, and after the second there were only four in the room to take a third test.

I noticed the proctor spent a goodly portion of her time looking through the want ads with a highlighter. I suppose if you're proctoring SAT tests you may be in need of a day job.

Chem was easier than expected, Math II was tough (but the curve is nice), and Literature was really easy, thanks almost entirely to the fact that I have taken roughly 85 such read-the-following-passage-and-answer-the-questions tests in my time.

Message from Planet Oseland: Sluthandle played a concert in a house on Buffalo Hills Lane last night. They are from the UK, and they're back on the surface after touring Hell for five years.

Sluthandle Roll Call:

Ghost Dentures, or Gumballs-Lead Singer!

I have a feeling that Sluthandle is actually just Chris' band with an English accent. I'm sorry I missed it.

My personal favorite was lit as well. But I did better in Math

languages are the only SAT IIs with even moderately difficult curves; you both will be fine.

I already took Math and Chem in June, and Bio and Lit in October, and I think you are right. I said I did better in Math because I got 790 in Math, and 740 in Lit.
