Blimmin’ Heck. Tis Friday already. Ah well. It’s been a busy week. Work is over – two weeks of staying in bed late coming up. Hurrah. But now time for the astoundingly interesting Friday Five contribution …
1. List your five favourite beverages.
2. List your five favourite websites.
Mine *chuckle* (but it needs a lot of work doing to it). Google because it comes up with silly sites when you type in silly things. Um … Sheesh, I don’t know. I give up. I like anything quirky and/or anything with tests or silly pictures.
3. List your five favourite snack foods.
Cheese. Cheese. Cheese. Cheese. And to be different – more cheese. I love cheese. I could eat cheese forever. Particularly if it’s funky cheese.
4. List your five favourite board and/or card games.
Game of Life. I loved that when I was a nipper. Monopoly because I always lose. Trivial Pursuits – I like the literature questions. Snap. My reflexes are shite. Donkey.
5. List your five favourite computer and/or game system games.
Pong. GTA: Vice City [my evil streak does shineth through]. Jet Set Willy. Horace Goes Skiing. Rollercoaster Tycoon. God, I’m so naff.
This week has been a whirlwind of discovering ancestors, people-watching at my school work party [I must be the only person who saw one of the female teachers storm off because she couldn’t find the bloke she’s having an affair with – it’s so much fun propping up the bar ], watching lots of videos in lessons, Secret Santa, Year 7s throwing strops in Technology lessons, flashing earrings, job problems (now resolved *fingers crossed*) for The Blokey, rude pictures in my email inbox [bad girl Tracey *waves to Tracey*], and shopping. Oh I loathe shopping.
And the news? Ian Huntley – jolly good. He deserved no less. Maxine Carr – I feel sorry for her. She’s lost everything. I suppose I have sympathy for her now because their next door neighbour was on the news saying about how she used to hear Maxine screaming and Ian threatening to kill her and I just remember thinking “Well, I bet you did the neighbourly thing and phoned the police”. Not that the police do anything about domestic abuse, but there you go. My two pennies worth is now noted. And Michael, what are you playing at now? Ooh, and Saddam almost aroused the interest of my Year 10s during Mondays lesson so we had an enlightening discussion about him, which was nice because sometimes I wonder if they’re capable of putting their brains into good use .
Yes, I was bored. Yes, I am boring.
