Year 10 hath murdered sleep

So, I have a sneaking suspicion that I might have got my job because a)I <3 SMARTBoards, b)I speak Japanese, c)I'm willing to teach a Year 10 extension class after school and d)I set someone's gaydar off at my interview. The last one makes more sense if you were ever to meet the rest of the German department. XD

Joking aside, I've had a great first week. The Year 9 group that everyone slates as difficult and "naughty" have so far behaved pretty well for me. Ironically, the other Year 9 group that I was given in a pretty last-minute-kind-of-a-way were supposed to be really bright, really lovely, and one of the top forms in the school. I think they're a bunch of annoying, chatty buggers who need a good shake, but there we go.

Apropos Year 9, I had an interesting moment on the bus this morning. I sat myself down at the back, and a couple of pupils sat nearby. One leaned over; "Miss! You're my German teacher!"
"Yes I am. And I've got you this afternoon, haven't I?"
"Well, yeah, but no. I'm in isolation today."


In other news, I blame my school for me discovering YouBot. It is probably the most disturbing thing I have ever seen. The mouths. JESUS CHRIST THE MOUTHS. I can't look away. I actually wasted about an hour of planning time playing on it, because I could not tear myself away from the utter freakiness. Go. Create a YouBot with an actual photograph of yourself. It is as sinister and as creepy as HELL.

01. My uncle once: stayed married to a woman long enough to have a child.

02. Never in my life: have I understood why people think French is a sexy language. German, on the other hand, is teh smex.

03. When I was five: if someone was talking about the DDR, they didn't mean a dancing game.

04. High school was: pretty shit. Now it's totally awesome. This is clearly a matter of perspectives...

05. I will never forget: the Blonde Harlot.

06. Once I met: Dexter Holland, before the Offspring started to really suck. And Dennis Waterman, but I didn't recognise him. I just thought he was a dirty old man who was going to rob the high-value pens counter. XD

07. There's this girl I know: who had never eaten a steak in her entire life until I cooked her one.

08. Once at a bar: I nearly didn't get served because I was dressed as a pirate. With a sword.

09. By noon: the sun has reached its zenith.

10. Last night: was Year 10 parents' evening and I got no fucking sleep. >:O

11. If only I had: a car. Then I wouldn't have to spend so much money on public transport.

12. Next time I go to church: will be MFL!Andy's wedding. If he and Sarah invite the unruly MFL people, anyway. I was going to say Esther's wedding, but she's getting married in Disneyland. XD
EDIT: Freaky. Andy just texted me asking for my postal address. I'm guessing this means a wedding invite for half-term, then! XD

13. What worries me most: the Euro becoming so strong that manga is no longer cheap for me.

14. When I turn my head left I see: a poster of Yuna from FFX-2.

15 When I turn my head right I see: my Thundercats curtains.

16. You know I'm telling the truth when: it's blunt and somewhat offensive.

17. What I miss most about the Eighties is: Margaret Thatcher.

18. If I were a character in Shakespeare I'd be: Romeo. A self-obsessed angsty fop whose habit of falling for completely the wrong women is the death of him. Literally.
...except I haven't died yet. And it would be terribly good fun to play Richard III. XD

19. If I ever go back to school: ... wait, what? I'm paid to go to school daily! :P

And that's all folks. Time to go catch up on some lost sleep...
