"Oh how cute"
Yes, I just uttered those words in reaction to a not particularly cute dog seat for a car. I'm doomed.
On a more serious note, today there was another earthquake in east Japan, a 6.5 or 6.8 (depending on which report you read). Or 5 to 6.3 according to NHK news depending on the area. (I give up!)
Oo apparantly an old lady fell out of bed and had a nosebleed as a result of the quake. Poor love. (You have to hear NHK News to believe it sometimes!)
I've now taught a few lessons during earthquakes and I never know how I should react. The students always look pretty worried, whereas I'm pretty 'whatever' about the whole thing. If it's going to happen, it's going to happen, and all that... although I think I'd rather die in a karaoke can with a vodka in one hand and a mic in the other, than in a classroom. But that's me. Anyway, I generally continue teaching when the classroom starts shaking. I wonder what other teachers do. I mean, I'm not going to start panicking and running around the classroom screaming, or go tearing out of the room for a little shake and rattle, am I? So what should I do? I also figure they are paying so should be getting there money's worth, potential death or not.
Does this make me weird?!
