Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

I was just passing by a few websites, and chanced upon a website that has a huge (and I mean HUGE) collection of excuses, real and suggested. Here's a few of my fave picks.
My son is under a doctor's care and should not take P.E. today. Please execute him.
Please excuse Lisa for being absent. She was sick and I had her shot.
Please ekscuse John being absent on Jan. 28, 29, 30, 31, 32.
Please excuse Roland from P.E. for a few days. Yesterday he fell out of a tree and misplaced his hip.
Please excuse Jimmy for being. It was his father's fault.
Sally won't be in school a week from Friday. We have to attend her funeral.
Please excuse Jason for being absent yesterday. He had a cold and could not breed well.
LOL! Those are real excuses! The ones below aren't real, but were sent in as suggestions for excuses.
Please excuse Henry for being late for school. He was stuck in the bathroom without any toilet paper.
Please excuse Casey from school. It was Take Your Daughter to work day. I don't have a job, so I made her stay home and do housework.
Homework? I was suppose to bring it back to school? I thought it stayed at home.
I was late because there are eight kids in my family, and my mother set the alarm for seven.
My mom told the secretary at the school that I fell down the stairs and broke my butt so now there's a big crack in it.
Anyway, on other news... I've prepared my portfolio for my school already. Sort of. They require a 3 piece set. One is a pencil-sketched portrait, second is a still-life landscape coloured drawing, and third, any composition through any media. Well, for my portrait sketch, I drew Jolin. I used this picture as a guide.
When I initially finished, I thought it was quite good, considering I really suck (totally) at drawing faces. Now that I'm looking at it again, I think it looks real terrible -.-. My landscape was some real abstract painting (yes, I used real paint!) of a hill, a tree and the moon. I honestly think a kindergartener could paint better than me -.-. I'm gonna redo it through colour pencils later. The third one was the easiest. My forte is graphics designing, so I just picked one of the pieces from my deviantART.
I think most of you would have known I was busy asking people for opinions on which piece was better to print for the portfolio. It seriously didn't help! I thought that people would clearly pick out the better one, but the mass opinions were about as split on the decision as I was. A day before I printed it out, the tally for Seraphim and Wings of Salvation were 40-40. And it always followed a pattern. Someone would vote for Seraphim, then another person would vote for Wings of Salvation. Only twice was there a vote for a single piece twice in a row. I picked Seraphim eventually though, due to a number of convicing reasons from a lot of people (even those who voted for Wings of Salvation). They said angels were not as outright religious as a cross, and to be neutral on those grounds, angels were better suited. They also said that Seraphim was more detailed, and the fiery passion would make a better impact on the grounds of a first impression. A number of people did outright prefer Wings of Salvation though. They said it looked more graceful and serene, more peaceful. Also that the wings gave a unique twist on the classic depiction of the cross, and that the effects were much more in sync with the cross and wings. Can you see the headache I went through? Thanks everyone on your opinions though. It was a really difficult decision. I guess these 2 are still my best art pieces so far.
Unless you count my current blogskin. Took me 5 hours to make. Hmmm... I'll give the details on it tomorrow. Duomo di Milano aka Milan Cathedral.
