I can’t go into anything very specifically here. Those of us working in education have to watch our backs out here on the big wide tinternet…but I do want to vent a little evil glee. Some months ago, I had a run-in with a student. He was agressive and threatening. I refused to teach him … Continue reading If karma doesn’t bite him in the ass, some one will…
Well, I had to really, they sent me vouchers… First MyFabrics, then TiaKnight, a terrible temptation as I’m a fan of both. Since making the shirts for the missus, I actually fancy one for myself. I stopped wearing shirts some years ago, when my boobs expanded and RTW shirts all gaped unbecomingly at the buttonholes. … Continue reading Payday and lack of self-control
