“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

uh, last term i was told off for not putting science shizzit away, and this term i've just been told off for putting science shizzit away.

see, this is the whole unscientist thing. after the first hairy scary science experiment when i was busy congratulating self for not setting any walls or kids alight, we left unfortunate shizzit in the sink cos i got my timing all wrong and had to rush the kids out of the lab without my newest trick of offering a *prize* for the tidiest area. but now the kids are so keen to get that prize, they're putting EVERYTHING away, including hot tripods fresh off the bunsen burners.
so there are now four holey plastic tote trays. (and a Big Fat Email Sent Out To All Teachers)
HOLY TOTE TRAYS, BATMAN.
oops, my bad.

betcha i know who won't be offered any science classes next year... the glass beaker is half full, my friend.

My God. You manage to get the kids to tidy up and tidy up well? Girl, you should be running the school. Either that or teaching people to walk on water!
