School’s out Friday

Garr Reynolds shared this on Twitter this afternoon, calling it a kick-ass visualisation of a simple metaphor, ah, sort of…

What do you think? Is it amusing, distasteful, ridiculous? My 11 yr old thought it was pretty funny.

It’s made me think of something to do with my English class. Perhaps we could make visualisations of metaphors? Sounds challenging, but something of interest for us all.

I can’t tell you how different I feel now that I’ve been on holidays for a week. Relaxed, rested, and so enjoying a lack of any routine. I don’t think I’d have any trouble managing to fill my days if I wasn’t at work for most of them, I can tell you that!!

AFL Grand Final here in Melbourne tomorrow. That means BBQ for lunch, catching up with friends and family, and eyes glued to the screen for the afternoon. My money’s on St. Kilda. God help us all if the Magpies (Collingwood) win; their supporters will be basking in it for the next 12 months if they do!

Have a great weekend. Hope the sun is shining wherever you are. : )

  1. Jenny, The sun is not shinning and I am not on holidays but the video did bring a smile to my face. For the older viewers, I would say the kick-ass video was in the gray area. Still very cute. Enjoy your holidays and especially the footie game. Do you still call Australian rules football footie? It has been many moons since I have been downunder.

      Hi Rich,
      Yes, we do call it footy. It’s somewhat of a religion here in Victoria, the State where it originated. I barrack for Hawthorn, but they didn’t get a look in this year at the finals. Grand Final day is sacrosanct for many Australians, although there are plenty who’d rather do anything but switch on the telly to take a look!

      Jenny : )
