Epic Saturday tomorrow. Epic Saturday is a new day which has been spontaneously added to this holiday because people are retarded and would give up their precious tickets to see the RSC performing Hamlet just because the goggly-eyed man from Dr. Who has broken his leg. Or back. Or whatever it was he broke. I am far too excited to care, as Janet and I now have some of these elusive tickets for tomorrow. RAHR and WIN.
On a less hyper note, I have managed to survive my parents doing their usual trick of restructuring the entire house at Christmas time with only minimal carpet burns, and the horrors of Christmas and Boxing Day have passed. More or less. Which means after Epic Saturday I need to get off my backside and get all my lessons planned for the first week of school, because ARGH. Tuesday is actually my fullest timetabled day. Monday might be worse, but only because there's a special period for Citizenship which goes before period one. However, my Year 8 form appear to not hate Citizenship the way the little shits I taught on my PGCE did, so that's a small mercy.
Anyhoo! Time for a meme which I gacked off fuunsaiki . Oooh, it's all literary...ish. Go to http://quotationspage.com/random.php3 and browse the random quotes until you find five that you think reflect who you are or what you believe.
