What made me laugh out loud today? This anecdote on Not Always Learning, a sister site to Not Always Right...

(I’m in chemistry class, and we’ve all branched out all over the room for an experiment. At this point, the teacher is on the opposite side of the rather large lab.)

Me: “So, first we need the bunsen burner.”

(I grab it to move it closer, but the two pieces aren’t secured right and the bottom falls off. I let out a short scream of surprise.)

Teacher: “Everything okay?”

Me: “Yeah, we’re fine—wait.”

(I notice that the teacher is suddenly right behind us.)

Me: “How did you do that? You were way over there not a second ago!”

Teacher: “When you work with chemicals, acids, and flames, and you hear a student scream, you suddenly develop the ability to teleport. Scientific fact.”

This is a bit of a sore point with the owl's owner. It turns out that as a result of the Harry Potter films, many parents bought owls for their kids. When they found out they wouldn't do the same stuff as in the film and required a lot of looking after they soon became abandoned or neglected. :(

I'll be posting some of the pics later. :D

Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

I'm grinnin' like Mr Hyde from Jekyll. Why? Because I have finally finished one of my books. It needs some polish, obviously, but it's the last draft I want to work on. :D
