British Words

12 year olds have far too much imagination for their own good.

So, block placement has started up now (And despite what a smartarse on Facebook may have suggested, that statement has absolutely nothing to do with Tetris).

Which on one hand means no lectures, but on the other means three straight weeks of having to get up early in the morning. And, you know, actually teaching shit.

My couple of classes so far have gone okay - better than last semester, at least, which I suppose is a sign of learning. Hopefully things will continue on along this direction, even as we get into the meat of things. Which shall be... interesting, I suppose, in terms of lesson plans and what-not.

Like getting around to using the props I collected today for when we start to read though Macbeth. I actually found a dagger I had lying around. (...Don't ask why I had a dagger lying around the iPartment.)

But yes, busy and tiring - it's odd how doing something that has such little physical activity can be so tiring. Huh.

Since that means that come evening I have no energy to much else that bum around on YouTube, here are some videos I have seen recently:

- Anyone remember the Piano stairs? I give you their spiritual successor: the Fast Lane. Which also looks like fun.
- Kittywood Studios: Behind the company that makes cat videos. Apparently Avenue Q was wrong. The Internet isn't for porn, it's for cat pictures.
- Flying shark (and clownfish). I so want one.
- The Plot Device. It deserves a watch. Really.

Also, I have founded the city of Drakopolia. Please come visit, people because that way it will get bigger.
