Something interesting

[random bitching]
Ack, the forum is dying. I'm not usually around anymore to post in it, seeing as Hell Week starts Monday. <P>Hell Week = The two weeks before finals. They're bad enough when all the teachers are trying to cram you with work before the semester ends. But I'm taking four AP tests in the space of 12 days. Also, since these are the final two weeks my class will ever have in our school, everyone's trying to impart us with their pet philosophy of life. Yuck.<P>Luckily, though, I have Ancient Messages pages drawn up to my graduation day (May 27) so there's one less thing I need to worry about.<P>On top of this, remember the Picture from Hell? The one there's currently five versions of?<P>Prepare for Picture From Hell Part 2. I've got another pencil sketch that's going to turn into a pencil drawing, a pencil/ink drawing, a colored pencil, possibly a chalk or cray-pas, if I can get some, and possibly a painting.<P>It's a cool picture though. I'll scan it tomorrow so I can show everyone.<p>[This message has been edited by Shiro (edited 05-04-2001).]

However, if you want to get really jealous you should read Age of Bronze (trade of the first nine issues should be out now). It's a retelling of the fall of Troy, and just now, in issue ten, Helen's finally arrived. The art is this great semi-Hellenic art look mixed with a more traditional American style. It's not over the top at all, but I can't stop thinking about it. <P>-Remi

<B>My computer's name is Apollo, I've got a bust of Sappho sitting right next to it, and I draw pictures from the Iliad onto old pants - does anyone think I have a problem yet?
</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Considering you've taken Bertaud's class for four years, that doesn't seem too paranormal to me (actually, "Apollo" is a cool name for a computer.) I've already tried to compare myself to Aeneas, and find the symbolism behind Seinfeld b/c of her class. Anyways, I'd just like to say that the picture is very good, just like everything else here. <P>P.S.
If you ever read this, try to figure out which classmate this is, if you feel like it.

....Paul?<P>Yeah, I'm completely sure it's you. The only other Latin Stud that knows about this site is Doug, and he'd probably still be laughing. <P>Four years of Bertaud's classes will do that to you. Especially the upper-level ones. Although Latin Lit is some wicked fun. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/tongue.gif"><P>There will be no Latin for me next year, unfortunately... I don't think the school I'm going to offers any. It's a shame... I took Latin because I was sick of French and Spanish, and it's grown on me.<P>Um, when you say you tried to compare yourself to Aeneas, do you mean Aeneas the cool leader or Aeneas the mama's boy?<P>*runs*<P>I've got a nerd picture of Aeneas, too - I'll scan it later. <p>[This message has been edited by Shiro (edited 05-06-2001).]
