» The B3TA Confessional

Happened about twenty minutes ago.
I was teaching a class and tried to stifle a cough so as I wouldn't cough all over the student. A great big gob of snot flew out of my nose and landed on the students desk. Fortunately she was too busy seeing what her friend was doing and I managed to quickly scrape up the snot with a sheet of paper I had on me. Cleaned it up proper a bit later with some windex(that was all i could grab at short notice). No one seemed the wiser.

» Absolute Power

Not the most interesting story but it is not very long
In Vancouver when the 2010 Winter Olympics was on I applied for a position, ANY position and landed the job of 'Work Force Supervisor' at one of the temporary bus depots set up for the Olympics despite having extremely little experience in any position of authority previously. This was placement was due more to the shambolic nature of the job agency I was with (hello Adecco!) than anything else. At first I tried to 'manage' (whatever that means)and 'get involved' but when I quickly realised that the staff that was working for me had infinitely more knowledge of the work at hand than I did, I just got the f---k out of the way and let them do their respective jobs. Cue two months of me surfing the net and taking naps on disused bus seats.Seemed to work quite well.

» "You're doing it wrong"

I was 19 before I realised that video stores arranged their videos in alphabetical order. I was aware that they arranged them by genre but it only dawned on me one day that they also organise them alphabetically within the genre when i realised that all the videos starting with 's' were next to each other. 'That's funny' I thought. WOW all the t's are too! and all the .. oh yeah that makes sense. Our house didn't actually have a VCR until I was 15 but most of my friends did and I'd made frequent trips to the store with them when I was growing up so that doesn't entirely explain it.

» Prejudice

Kick a ginger day
Being a ginger I have had to put up with all the usual school ground bullshit. still, once into adulthood i though that all that was over, except for the being ignored by most women part. i always figured that would last. still, now it seems that picking on gingers in wider society is considered acceptable. people need something/someone to have a go at.now it's no longer acceptable to do so against blacks/gays e.t.c people have started to run out of people to make fun of. gingers are seen as fair game as they are white and it's o.k to be prejudiced against your own race and in a society that is majority white then its game on .please note,i'm not for a moment suggesting i have had to put up with anything like the stigmatisation,pain and suffering of other minorites in the past though.
anyways this kick a ginger day business for me works like this: if you're around my size or smaller and you kick me you get a very solid punch in the head in return.no questions asked. if substantially bigger than me you get a mean stare and impotent rage.
