You can't really compare working in a school to working in an office so I have no idea what it's like to be a drone in a cubicle. A teacher has a lot more control over what they do in their day, how they choose to present lessons and just when it's appropriate to slack off when you need that bit of a recharge.
Planning for a substitute is often more work than just coming into the school when you are sick. One good thing is that I rarely got real sick after a few years because spending 10 months of the year in the human germ factories that are schools really builds up your immune system.
I found these posters on Super Punch that remind me of those great ones from WWII. Just don't show them to your office manager or it will be seminar time and I understand that those are just as boring and annoying as staff meetings or professional development days are for teachers.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
