Am dumped, thank goodness. Once again, a bloke couldn't cope with my hectic life and decided it was too much hassle. Am I distraught? Nope. It was certainly no great passion, and the sex was nice enough but not worth writing home about. And besides, he kept his CDs in alphabetical order. Time to move on, methinks!

Reports for A and O block finished - just off to put them in the correct boxes now. It's a relief, I can tell you! Last night's performance of Pedants went very well (even though I forgot my song - d'oh!) Only two more nights and it's all over for another 4 years...scary!! It's been the real focus of this half term, and it's going to be odd when it goes. I'll just have to find another project - maybe GaSCiT?!

Have been learning how to use FileMaker Pro for my reports... MUCH easier than handwriting!! :-) Even easier if you do 'em in Word and spell check 'em first!! ;-) It's the first night of Pedants tonight - I'm going to have biceps like a bison after doing the curtain all week! I don't think my liver will forgive me either! Mind you, it's a good excuse for not marking!!!! Better go - teaching in 20 minutes... Have fun.

Writing reports.
On a brighter note, I found this FANTASTIC site - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Infocom game - we had this for our Amstrad word processor pooter thingy when I was a nipper, and now it's gone javascript!! Hurrah!! :-)

Mugglenet - for all your Harry Potter needs!

Having a free lesson. Yippeeeeee!! Sadly, there's lots of marking to do, and a modicum of stress involved with launching the department's intranet pages (God bless this website and all who sail in her) Ho hum!! Instead of working I'm waiting for Demon to get its act together and let me see my mail. Could be waiting a long time... :-(

Mr Scruff

It's far too late to be playing blog, but I'm supposed to be marking, and any diversion's welcome!! Have just spent a lovely weekend in Cheltenham - didn't do much really, but WAS introduced to the delights of Crash Team Racing on the Play Station!! :-) Oh - and I bought another Fat Face top... very nice!!

Sitting in Economics - the kids are on end of lesson free time, so some are playing the lemonade game while others seem to be playing some classic stick man fighting game It's amazing what you can learn as a teacher!! :-)

Seems to have worked!!!!!!

Maybe technology is not beyond me after all!!

Well - another day further on, one v v interesting course on GCSE Business Studies attended (traffic in Birmingham city centre 6/10 - was expecting far worse!), two hours of rehearsals and now a bloke who can't phone coz he's low on battery. I think it's just the fact that he'd rather spend time in the pub!! :-) I'm on duty, but am popping back to the flat every so often, and I suspect that I've finally got this blog publishing thing to work. Fingers crossed!! (makes typing difficult, but if it pays off then it's worth it!!)

Maybe this blog mallarky will be the answer to many things. Maybe not. It all depends whether I can get the damn thing to show up on the web or not (ah - the joys of being a luddite!!)
