News update

Apparently, according to my group of Form 2 students who attend various Hong Kong secondary schools, only people in big hats are in charge. They cite the Pope, chefs in any swanky kitchen, ‘that bloke who got shot in America’ (A.K.A. Abraham Lincoln), and, of course, the Fat Controller from Thomas The Tank Engine and Friends.

Also, from a particularly pants-wettingly funny crack!lesson* including a dangerous mix of P5 (ten-year-old) students and myself high on green tea (hey, don’t knock it till you’ve done it), ninja monkeys are equipped with lightsabres that have had their power units swapped out for fruit (read ‘herb’)-based sugar sources to produce blistering moments of naturally beneficial squirtiness. Yes, you’ve guessed it - bananasabres.

According to the same sources, Doctor bloody Who’s ‘running music from season 3’ (officially known as ‘All The Strange, Strange Creatures [The Trailer Music]’ by Murray Gold) now trumps the Indiana Jones Theme as the ultimate Monday morning get-your-arse-out-of-bed music. However, it’s a toss-up between ‘Boe’, also by Murray Gold, and ‘Labour Of Love’ by Michael Giacchino (from the Star Trek XI soundtrack) as to which plucks at the heartstrings more.

On a completely unrelated note, the first two attempts to graft Snow Leopard 10.6.3 onto a clean Eee PC 901A have not met with success. However, NetBookBootMaker et al is being shucked in favour of Chameleon, so hopefully by this time next week we’ll be victorious.

That’s about it.


* Crack!lesson:
Named after the drug to imply that the tone of the lesson can only be the product of a deranged mind, crack!lessons can be identified by their absurd, surprising, or ridiculous premise. Generally they are full of fall-about laughter, puns and in-jokes.
