kate5kiwis: bless my soul, circ was on a roll.


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

bless my soul, circ was on a roll.

i am seriously fat. this week has been Te Wiki o te Reo Māori and one of the teachers put down a hangi at skool yesterday, and at the end of the day there was a steaming happy porker (that his uncle had hunted!!!) ON THE BENCH at skool and the crackling was divine (but it still had some sandpapery hairs in it but i didn't care: saves me deplaquing my tongue later bwahahaha) and the meat was THE BEST evah piggy, and there was taters precious and the tastiest pumpkin and i SWEAR it was the BEST hangi i have EVER TASTED: no grease, just smokey deliciousness. buuuuuuuuuut, oh sweet porker i have a big belly. have not been doing gym or bike or even zumba. i do have a crazily clean house tho.

oh, the other funny thing about the hangi was that the kids' ticket to hangi kai was a can of food, to be donated to i-don't-know-which-fabby-cause, and one of my maths kiddos tried to swap his sandwich with me so that he could nick my can of spaghetti that he was measuring the circumference and diameter of to try to work out an equation that included both.

i am super-impressed with these kiddos: the buzz in the classroom was SO COOL!! and the kids all found out what i was hoping they'd find out, and they are getting closer to finding out the answer/s to The Question, which is: "if every New Zealander (that's four million peeps) all took a big wheelbarrow load of dirt off The Mount, how much Mount would be left?"

i have in my possession a Very CompliKATEd H'explanation which Sir has drawn me. i fink i will need to give it much blonde thought before i can show'n'tell. need to ixnay on the piggy piggy too. eat less, move more. needa sleep more too: am currently on a pre-dawn wake up call. hence the crazily clean house.

There are worse things than being fat. Being hungry is one of them. ;-)
