No, NOT Joe Cool, or Bieber cool.
The weather is cool, and therefore I am too. I’m not complaining, it’s pleasant after our recent hot spell.
I read of an ingenious way of getting around the problem of no net on An Englishman in Italy. I love his blog. After his post, I commented: “I have a similar problem at work. No, it doesn’t involve a yacht’s mast, yet. I was able to get a connection when the other firm occupied the room next to my classroom. But they moved across the road. It was fine when they had the router near the front window, but they moved it to the back room; now with an extra wall between us sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t. Maybe I should look for a mast…”
If you want to understand the yacht mast you’ll have to read his side of the story.
It was so handy having the net in class. I used to d/load music and song lyrics and also to demonstrate things relating to English culture. I must try and convince my bossette that the net is a good teaching aid, but she is very old fashioned and bleats about the cost of everything. Last week I asked for fly spray to combat mosquitoes that were annoying students; you’d have thought I had asked her to put a down payment on the crown jewels instead of an R$8 can of spray. Then I got a lecture about how to use it frugally.
Did you know that the average woman consumes 6lbs of lipstick in a lifetime… Quite frankly, I am amazed, I have never thought of eating lipstick, I wonder how they cook it, or is it eaten raw?
On a different eating theme. I love avocado milkshakes. Half an avocado, lots of ice and milk. into the blender.
Drink it until the pain hits, right at the base of the skull. Brain Freeze! Oh why do I do it.
Last week I made them for my kids when they visited.
Emmylee’s immediate response, “I’m not drinking that, it’s Shrek poo!” Sigh, that’s an eight year old for you.
I showed her the avocado skins and finally convinced her to try it. She liked it. Now they’re called Shrek poo!
Ebola. They’ve been telling us lies… again. In 1990 Ebola was recognised as being airborne.
The British pound is falling, it has upset money markets. Now tell me again where is this economic recovery they keep talking about.
Hong Kong situation explained in intelligable language by Andrew in a great post. Thanks Andrew, that was well done.
Must be time for Nap-fu practice.
