Early to bed tonight for me. Spent the last two nights putting in some long hours for mum. She got landed the job of doing a presentation to the year 10 students on biology and why they should do it for the HSC. Happy to say that in the end, the powerpoint presentation turned out quite nicely, and her presentation got a good reaction. Physics teachers were muttering afterwards that they need to figure out how to incorporate pictures of cute fluffy animals into their talks too. But we also had a cute animated gif of a Pacman type cartoon, to illustrate immune system stuff, and nice layout, tasteful use of animated text, and two pieces of music. Circle of Life for ecosystem topic, and Stayin' Alive for Maintaining Body Balances. Nsync version, natch *g*. Well, partially because I thought the lyrics were actually clearer. Not just cause I can hear Chris so clearly ;)
I was originally only going to be working Tuesday and Thursday this week, but that turned into 4 days (yay!). Someone is finishing up tomorrow, and they're still trying to make up their minds if this person is even going to be replaced, let alone if they want me in over the next few weeks to do some of her work. Stupid management.Here's a question for y'all - if applicable, when did you first read the Harry Potter books, and why?
I was re-reading Philosopher's Stone the other day, and the receipt is still tucked in the back. January 2000 - I'd heard a bit about these books, just vague stuff, it was before the hype got quite so...[insert superlatives of choice here], and one of the girls I babysat was reading them. She said they were really good, and dad and I won't not read fun fantasy books just because they're being marketed at kids *g*, so dad bought the first one and read it. Passed it on to me, and immediately bought the next two (PoA was still only in HB at this stage). We both thought they were good stories, and enormous fun. Plus, Sirius and Lupin were the first slashy couple I ever saw that I hadn't been primed to see :)
