“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

"i'd like to thank my mother, the op shop, doctor marten, the von trapps, and my auntie..."

total hilarity at skool this morning:
cos it was the last skool assembly for the year 13 students whose study leave starts this wednesday. they presented the usual certifiKATEs for all of the volunteer students and they'd made a fabulous video of their year group (complete with Mr P's globe jokes and the march of the penguins on the pool diving board).
the *surprise* for me were the TEACHERS AWARDS. there were about eight awards, and i managed to get a nomination for MISS ORIGINALITY and then....
(((drum roll)))
i took out the award for MOST CREATIVE DRESSER!!! so i blushed and clomped across stage in my ten year old disco ball heels and the black lace skirt my auntie picked up from a garage sale a week ago (suz i also have our bracelet on!!!) the most hilarious thing is that i don't even teach these kiddos - i am just their sub - and a hanger-on to Sir's arm for all the functions he goes to. i won a teeny silver cup. i wanna swap it for the gawdy dolly that someone else won lol.
but wait, there's more...
Sir won himself a spiderman watch for MISTER PUNCTUALITY to help him get to class on time.
