Hmm, kids.

My twin nephews are having party next week for their fifth birthday, and my sister has asked me to help watch the mob of obnoxious little tyrants-I mean, the lovely group of children who will will be attending. Yeah, that.
Anyway, it's supposed to be a themed costume party and she really wants me to wear the proper costume for the theme and not just show up in regular clothes. And I really want to wear a costume, as long as it's a cow costume and I get to keep it for later use. You never know when a cow costume will come in handy.* Luckily for me, at least four of the kids (besides my niece and nephews) have been watched by me before, so they know that I'm a bloodthirsty tyrant and that they should just avoid acting up or I'll force them to do sit ups until I get tired or something like that- I mean,they know that I'll tell their parents every single thing they do, and I that I forget nothing. All will be told. You shall be punished. Resistance is futile All your base- wait--- nevermind.

*Such as never, for instance.

There's a rather sweet Sunday evening drama running its second series here at the moment, called Lark Rise to Candleford. In last week's episode, the was some question about who would look after the village school with its unruly children. The last teacher had left, having had a nervous breakdown but not before calling them all a bunch of savages.

Have fun!

I probably won't have a nervous breakdown*.
Having poked around on the internet, I see that that series is available online.It sounds similar to an old program that still runs old episodes from time to time. Can't remember the name at the moment though.

*This time, at least.
