    Christmas Spirit (lack of)

    Having worked in schools for the past few years, I've come to realise that end of Autumn term causes a lot of people to become highly stressed out and liable to blow up at things that they'd normall just let go.

    Luckily, I was on jury duty for past 2 weeks and am completely relaxed myself (apart from the memory troubles!) but this has not been so in previous years.

    So I'd like to suggest from someone whoes been there and done that that any Edugeeker in this stressed out state, just takes a break from here for a couple of weeks, and comes back (or not) in the New Year after some quality time off (and lots of wine/port/drug of choice)

    Merry Christmas to one and all.

    regards

    Simon

    PS the above statements DO NOT apply to any issues I have with SMARTBoard technical support :P

    We used to mix red and green Aftershock and called it 'Christmas Spirit'

    ... I wouldn't recommend it

    The other 'cocktail' we created was mixing anything with Blavod. Now, Blavod is a very dangerous drink, but hilarious, and turns green almost any other liquid (I'm pleased to say I never tried mixing Aftershock with Blavod)

    green + alcohol = ALGAE-HOL!

    (run away!)

    well we were shocked, we actually got complimented on our christmas spirit. Could be because we have music on (not christmasy) have a box of sweets we are randomly offering and because I haven't hung my Christmas bear yet.

    Aparently everyone else is boring Now considering the reputation we normally have I think this is quite impressive!

    I once drunk 13 shots of aftershock one after the other.....and regretted it. I once drunk 3 bottles of red wine and threw up over my in-laws cream bathroom carpet, I regetted that as well.

    No decorations here or at home as I have no real reason to celebrate.

    At least it was colourful...

    oh... yeah....

    ...that's a bad thing on carpet, isn't it?

    I like red aftershock with lemonade - very warming
