My mouth tastes like an ashtray. I got ten hours sleep and am still not yet fully awake. I am currently waiting for the Rugby World Cup Final highlights to start, and wanting to hunt my ISP. Yet again, they have decided to give my connection a broken DNS server. WolfSpoor and Gaming Report aren't working. Having experienced this far more than anyone should have, I can tell that getting to any but a small handful of sites is going to be utterly impossible. Pigfucking wankers must die.

In other news, the next drooling fucktard to whine about the AEonverse going D20 is going to die. There are no excuses for stupidity.

So. Yesterday. The school itself is less-new than last week's place, but this at least gives the brats some sense of school identity. Two science covers, both of which went reasonably well (admittedly, one was just letting them watch a video for an hour, but what the hell). Then RE[1], which was harder to keep control. The kids were bored, I couldn't exactly teach them anything as they were working from supplied worksheets with fluffy questions (name three ways in which you could make a difference in the world), but they weren't too bad. One last science lesson in which I got to freak out the veggies (I love predatory biology), and lunch in the smoke room. One thing established schools have that newer ones just don't is a kind of rapport between the staff, and that was in evidence here. After lunch, a science class again which went worse than the earlier one (the fact that it was the same lot I had for RE didn't help), and the last lesson was spent sitting in with an IT group without working computers.

Met up with Paul and Jehanne after getting into town, and stopped for a swift couple of pints in the Old White Hart (been a long time since I have been in there, for no good reason). Back home to eat and out again for another couple of pints. Good to see them again.

And triplee, I'm stil waiting for the comments on that fiction...

[1]: Religious Education. Why? I don't know either.

And Stew strikes another blow in the name of common sense. Thank you. (:

Thanks for the reminder. I'll likely review it after dinner tonight.

Done and done.
Ok, I finished all of it, starting all the way back at "Good Programming Considered Bad" and working forward. Hope the comments were helpful enough.

Also, the second time reading this post, it also occurred to me how amusing you teaching religious education would be. Too bad they are using said fluffy worksheets.

I find the idea of you teaching religious education to be one of the coolest things that I've heard in ages. Maybe it's because you're well read and you could give a good cross-section of most world religions. Maybe it's the thought of you explaining the opiate of the masses in your trademark bitter sarcasm. Or maybe it's the idea of you explaining why you're a god and all else is lies and false propaganda. :-)
