And we're back

The untitled-blog-post thing? Really not my style. It's September and I return you to your originally planned titled programming.

We spent dinner last night in the company of two preschoolers who were, alternately, absolutely darling or utterly devilish. It was an object lesson in the real deal for anyone planning kids: they are the original double-edged sword, capable of inspiring warm fuzzies even as they gouge your heart out with some tic or attitude that, to you, is grossly inappropriate.

Not at work today because of Teachers' Day, even though technically I'm not teaching in my current position of employment. Having today off makes me think we should always have Wednesdays off: then we'd work like crazy Monday-Tuesday, take a mid-week break on Wednesday, resume the work frenzy on Thursday-Friday, and retreat for a well-deserved break on the weekend. Mmmmm ... four-day work week ...

4 day work week - move to Holland mon ami! The Netherlands is a signatory to the Common European Working Hours joke - and they only do 32 hours per week!

Now, if I was offered a job there I would be there like a shot.....snigger snigger

Eh, Anonymous --- must identify yourself so that I know which Anonymous you are.

I didn't know the EU only has a 32-hour work week and now I'm regretting not putting more consistent effort into French lessons back in university...

oh yes! =)

happy teacher's day!

honestly, i probably wouldn't have enjoyed gp as much if the class had some other tutor. watching south park during class! [and of course, essays / summaries / comprehension passages.]

though i probably could've done without watching the documentary about the real story behind The Exorcist.. *goosebumps*

Thanks, Ming!

And the only reason I showed The Exorcist thingie was because it sounded more interesting than most of the other religion-y videos that were available. I totally forgot about South Park --- and it's really scary how that's already a dated reference ...
