I would be quite happy if it was this time tomorrow. It would mean that this half-term is over and I have a whole week off to look forward to. Still, a day of keeping Boy With The Alcoholic Parents away from the Head [who really has it in for him, and makes it obvious], asking Cheery Admin Assistant about wedding cakes, playing imaginary Uno in an imaginary lesson with an imaginary student, and not singing Mr Raven with Another Boy Who Thinks I’m Coolest Of The Cool … then it will finally be over and I can relax.
Breathe in …. breathe out.
I still can’t get used to getting home an hour and a half earlier. So this post is purely a filler-inner-waste-of-an-evening-er because all my chores are done …
Ignore the meme I found and got greedy enough to do …
1. Would you ever lead someone on if it was financially beneficial to you?
probably not, but i have done in the past. it worked, a little, yet was emotionally draining and had no long-term benefits.
2. What’s the most expensive thing you own?
my [our] house. then my [our] bed. then my [definitely my] engagement ring. yes, our bed cost more than my diamond. but it’s a bloody good bed with a bloody tip-top mattress which is oh-so comfy. come join us, but try not to get scratched by my spaaaarkly …
3. What’s more important, job satisfaction or a fat paycheck?
job satisfaction. if it was only money i was interested in i’d still be teaching and therefore stressing.
4. How much money would it take for you to whore yourself out?
it would depend on the person to whom i was going to whore myself out. if it was alan rickman then i wouldn’t take a penny. i expect that i’d pay him. if it was just any old joe bloggs then i’d expect some recompense for being so nice as to whore myself out to him.
[apologies, i meant to say nothing; i would never whore myself out, i’m perfectly happy with not whoring myself out]
5. Would you be morally opposed to stealing something if you knew you could?
i’m supposed to say yes here, no? i’d be too scared to steal anything now. i have too much to lose. however, i have stolen in the past. it created a brief high and then a terrible feeling of guilt. and it was in belgium. which has nothing to do with it, really. except that maybe it’s morally acceptable to steal from jewellery shops in belgium?
