Woah no no, it's not all been done...

Today, on the other hand, was a bad day. An extraordinarily bad day. And I had 2 lessons worth of it in non-instruction time. I am really hoping my kids decide to stay home tomorrow, because they're clearly not up to sitting still for two minutes.

I haven't been able to sing properly since I started teaching. After spending the whole day talking, it hurts my throat too much. (My definition of properly is "really, really loudly.") This makes me sad. Sometimes, I'd love to just let it all out by crashing around my house wailing along to Barenaked Ladies.

Hope you're happy too...

I made myself a promise I wouldn't talk about Ashes to Ashes, but I lied.

I'm still not loving the idea. It's silly, because I came to Life on Mars for Phil and Phil alone. You'd think I'd be well chuffed about a show that's been created because Phil is just so damn good at playing his character. But I'm not. They got it mostly right the first time, why do they feel the need to try and replicate it? The things they got wrong, well, they don't see them as wrong, so there's nothing new to be gained.

I guess the thing that gets me is that it's not really a spin off, is it? It's a sequel. Three of the main characters, same basic plotline - it's Look Who's Mad, In a Coma, or Back in Time 2: Electric Boogaloo. And whilst I'm sure it really will be entertaining, I'm not sure I see the point.
