    OK, everyone knows now that I have a MAJOR depression problem. I was actually gonna post a "Cya later for a while" thread, but then I thought that wouldn't be such a good idea. I then thought that you guys could try and cheer me up a little. I mean, we write some REAL crazy stuff in these threads.

    Let's see if you guys can do better than some of the SA cricketers - they wrote some real funny meassges in my sutograph book!

    Actual School Excuse Notes

    These are excuse notes from parents (with their original spelling) collected by schools from all over the country:

    1) My son is under a doctor's care and should not take P.E. today. Please execute him.

    2) Please excuse Lisa for being absent. She was sick and I had her shot.

    3) Dear School: Please exscuse John being absent on Jan. 28, 29,30, 31, 32, and also 33.

    4) Please excuse Gloria from Jim today. She is administrating.

    5) Please excuse Roland from P.E. for a few days. Yesterday he fell out of a tree and misplaced his hip.

    6) John has been absent because he had two teeth taken out of his face.

    7) Carlos was absent yesterday because he was playing football. He was hurt in the growing part.

    8) Megan could not come to school today because she has been bothered by very close veins.

    9) Chris will not be in school cus he has an acre in his side.

    10) Please excuse Ray Friday from school. He has very loose vowels.

    11) Please excuse Pedro from being absent yesterday. He had (diahre) (dyrea) (direathe) the runs. [words in ()'s were crossed out.]

    12) Please excuse Burma, she has been sick and under the doctor.

    13) Irving was absent yesterday because he missed his bust.

    14) Please excuse Jimmy for being. It was his father's fault.

    15) I kept Billie home because she had to go Christmas shopping because I don't know what size she wears.

    16) Please excuse Jennifer for missing school yesterday. We forgot to get the Sunday paper off the porch, and when we found it Monday, we thought it was Sunday.

    17) Sally won't be in school a week from Friday. We have to attend her funeral.

    18) My daughter was absent yesterday because she was tired. She spent a weekend with the Marines.

    19) Please excuse Jason for being absent yesterday. He had a cold and could not breed well.

    20) Please excuse Mary for being absent yesterday. She was in bed with gramps.

    21) Maryann was absent December 11-16, because she had a fever, sore throat, headache and upset stomach. Her sister was also sick, fever and sore throat, her brother had a low grade fever and ached all over. I wasn't the best either, sore throat and fever. There must be something going around, her father even got hot last night.

    22) Please excuse little Jimmy for not being in school yesterday. His father is gone and I could not get him ready because I was in bed with the doctor.

    I'm sorry about this Nat, but I would really like to know what has made your life so crap.

    I've not been having the best of times myself, but I don't really see the need to make it public that I'm not a happy camper.

    Please humor me.

    Sorry for making it "public", but I thought that maybe you guys could help cheer me up. It's either that or disappear again....

    I'm not trying to drive you away or upset you Nat and I apologised upfront just in case I have.

    It's just that some of us are finding it hard to try and help with your problems when you won't tell us what is wrong.

    I was reminded of a funny(well I think it is, of course you may find otherwise) incident that happened a while ago after reading this story about people turning old Macs into bongs (iBong?).

    Anyway, it happened a while ago while I was rehearsing for a school play. We had gotten a revised schedule the week before but I couldn't remember which schedule was which and they had conflicting times for the days rehearsal to start. I decided to err on the side of caution and turn up to the earlier time. When I got there it was clear that the later time was correct since no one was there. So just waited...

    Soon another cast member turned up, he was early because he had to catch the bus and the bus time tables didn't hapily comply with our rehearsal time tables so he was stuck having to wait around like me.

    Anyway, he then asks me "Hey since we'll be here for a while do you want to go down and get some cones?" I was a bit shocked, I never saw this guy as a guy who was into smoking cones! I'm not into drugs, and don't plan to be, but generally have no problems with those that do. So I just try to be polite and say "No, I don't really feel like doing that". He keeps pushing the subject saying "it's a perfect day for it" and I keep trying to decline his offer, he then says "hell I'll even buy it for you!". This looked to me like a clear case of 'the first one is always free' I really didn't like how he was trying to force me to do this with him so I sternly said "Look, I just don't want a cone okay!" I went over and started looking at some nearby posters.

    Soon another early bird shows up and he asks her if she wants to get a cone, she says yes and of they go. I couldn't believe it, I never thought she was into that stuff, and I was also amazed at how this guy would just as anyone.

    So I just wait around on my own and soon they come back, each of them holding an.... ICE CREAM cone! All the time I thought he had been talking about cones as in pot, not cones as in ice cream cones. I felt like such a retard, especially since that day was a good day for an ice cream cone ;)

    Hmm, how I met these cricketers...

    Like a "cricket groupie", I hang around after every match getting autographs and stuff. By the end of the season, all the players know who I am, if not by name, by face. You know, like they sau hello to me every match and cya when they leave - and then wave as they drive off. Anyways, since it was the last game of the season, I managed to score Chris Rogers' training cap (very well wron thru out the season, and Chris also scored an unbeaten century in both innings for those who like cricket). I also score Murray Goodwin's polo shirt. Pretty good huh?

    As for what got me in a depression - no-good using bitchy friends and the ass manager at work. BTW, have thrown that tantrum and thrown stuff across the room, but he doesn't care.

    Pffft, Soneil's just jealous coz he in't bad enough for us ...
    (or should that be good? Because, you know, bad is evil, and evil is good, and all good things are still evil. Which makes them bad.)
