    Festive Joke?
    1. What does Miley Cyrus have at Christmas?

    Twerky.

    2. Why did no-one bid for Rudolph and Blitzen on eBay?

    Because they were two deer.

    3. Mary and Joseph – now they had a stable relationship.

    4. What does the Queen call her Christmas Broadcast?

    The One Show.

    5. What did Santa do when he went speed dating?

    He pulled a cracker.

    6. Why don’t you ever see Santa in hospital?

    Because he has private elf care.

    7. How did Mary and Joseph know that Jesus was 7lb 6oz when he was born?

    They had a weigh in a manger.

    8. Why is it getting harder to buy Advent calendars?

    Because their days are numbered.

    9. How do you know if Santa’s been in your garden shed?

    You’ve got three extra hoes

    10. Why was the Brussels sprout sent to prison?

    Because it was a repeat offender

    *Shameless copy and paste from an email I received a day or so ago!

    Well in an effort to maintain the equilibrium of the continuum, given @X-13's sudden burst of responsible employment, I'll abscond from work for the rest of the day and eat all these biscuits I'm being given instead. Current count: two boxes of Waitrose Christmas chocolate biscuit selection*, a tin of Fabulously Fox's, a tin of McVities Victoria selection, a box of Cadbury's Fingers (three flavours) and an Asda Extra Special Belgian Yule Log.

    I love my school.

    I'll do some work tomorrow or something. No, wait, I'll just watch the pantomime rehearsals in the name of ensuring that our video-link between halls is working. Cushty!

    *one of these was technically payment for laptop data recovery, for which I did none of the work. I still ate the biscuits though.

    Why you make me sad?

    I did get a chocolate Santa from the boss which was nice. Oh and I ate most of the biscuits sent to the office. *scoff* *scoff*

    @north-ict is okay with his original prize actually, so no deal required it turns out. Thanks for offering though, could have been useful.

    Soz - not trying to gloat - just really enjoy my job!

    Still sounds a bit gloaty doesn't it? How about - "I am grateful for my work and do not hate my employment totally"?

    So far today, my 'work' has included:

    • editing a video of last week's concert;
    • watching a theatre company perform Mother Goose in the school hall;
    • leading a lunchtime play session;
    • taking photos of the upper junior parties for the school website.


    Oh, and embellishing my Father Christmas disguise after yesterday.

    I love my job!

    Downside is I'm missing MADvent. Still got two vids to catch up with. I may even have won and not know about it! No? Ah, well. There's always tomorrow...

    Edit: Bonus - A teacher has just been in and given me a bottle of something, saying she doesn't know if I like it but it'll come in handy if I get a cold. I'm guessing it's either whisky or night nurse.
