I have this image in my head – last day of Dalek highschool, a bunch of Daleks more and more excitedly rattling off “Matriculate! Matriculate!”: Yesterday another cohort of seniors left school to join the journey to the next phase of their life. I am blessed to have taught some of them. For a teacher […]
This time of year is horrible. The plain truth of it is that, for a teacher, we have more marking than a reasonable person can do, and deadlines that seem impenetrable: I guess it is why teachers in Australia are payed the big bucks, right?
Now I am as much a fan of Game of Thrones as the next person, but I do like a good ice zombie as a baddie: This is Nick Robinson’s “Hairy Man”, but I think it is much more demonstrative of an icy undead monster.
…so if you found a magic lamp, rubbed it and a Genie appeared, granting you 3 wishes, what would you wish for?: It is an interesting, vaguely existential question that is remarkably difficult to answer with any certainty.
Go on, admit it. Ever since you saw the “Aladdin” movie you have secretly thought how cool it would be to ride on a magic carpet: This clever model, inexpertly folded, is an exercise in colour management- had I used bi-colour paper, the rider and carpet would be different colours – pretty neat.
Flipping through Tanteidan convention books I have I came across a delightful little figure that was screaming to be folded in orange: This is Riki Saito’s “Mr Puppet Man”, but I reckon he looks a lot like “Elmo” so I am calling it so. (On second thoughts, isn’t Elmo Red? Oh well, never mind)
Elected members of the senate have a responsibility to represent their constituents: When an elected member plans and then executes a stunt designed to trivialise, demonise and poke fun at an Islamic traditional garment some women choose to wear, I find deeply it offensive.
The toe bone’s connected to the foot bone, The foot bone’s connected to the ankle bone, The ankle bone’s connected to the leg bone, Now shake dem skeleton bones!: The leg bone’s connected to the knee bone, The knee bone’s connected to the thigh bone, The thigh bone’s connected to the hip bone, Now shake […]
So today I got up at 3.30am to catch a shuttle bus to the other side of the city at 4.30am so I could register for the charity walk I had agreed to accompany my daughter on: 35kms later, we made it to the finish line and most of my bits currently hate me. I […]
So I am stepping up and doing a charity walk tomorrow. 35km for Mitochondrial Disease research. I would like to pretend I am super fit, but in reality I am a walker and am not really sure if I can make it: I am however willing to give it a go. YOU can support my […]
