Re: High School Pranks

Someone's started sticking pictures of cats up around our sixth form common room.

They're very slowly increasing, and no one knows who. They aren't lolcats, just cute kittens asleep on top of guitars or playing with balls of wool.

Given how much stress we're under, I love this person dearly.

I probably do need to cut down on the footnotes a bit, although I'm very fond of them.
