It's late for the contest, but... Answered

There's a steampunk egg containing a pendant on ebay.

Nice little item, and part of the proceeds go to charity, so I don't feel spammy advertising it.

Secondly, it's our "half term" break (a week off).

Thirdly - what the smeg did you do to get suspended?

Knowing what it actually means as well.

Which is more than the BBC did when they let it slip through the lawyers and end up on Red Dwarf before the watershed.

Wow, that is smaller then my "state" which takes about 6-7 hours to go from where I am to the far end (about 2/3's through it). Of course, if you are going faster then 70 MPH, maybe it isn't as small as I picture it?

Use the AA to check - Lowestoft or Norwich are close enough to get an idea of how far it is.

The ones with proper jobs get to take their holidays when the prices are two thirds lower.

And the ones who complain about teachers' holidays are usually at the back of the queue when somebody suggests trying it for themselves...

Ah, the secondly statement explains why I have seen you up and in here a wee bit later then I would normally expect (it is 17:08 now, making it what, 9 or 10 pm now) except on some Fridays ;-) .

As I type, it's 9.15pm. I should be working, school break or not - I have about 90 books and about 60 assessments to grade before the end of the week. I am, though, a terrible victim of procrastination. I'll probably end up spending all next Sunday marking into the wee small hours.

I always forget which half of DST effects the time difference (whether GMT -4 or -5) :-) Yeah, I know how it is, I feel that way myself many times.
