Obviously Working Too Hard...

Life has rather overtaken me this week. The new job is taking up all of my mental and physical energy. The school is really great, and I think I will be very happy... and Half-Term is in six weeks.

The fact that my brain is even more scrambled than usual was brought home to me on Friday. There was a bit of a get-together for the staff, and they had a draw for the Rugby World Cup. I decided that I might as well have a bash, and so put my name in.

When my name was called out along with the country drawn, I looked round at the others in my department: "Ok, I know nothing about rugby. Are they any good?"

I was a little taken aback by the mirth. And then my one surviving brain cell kicked in.

New Zealand... also known as the All Blacks. I believe they're "quite good..."

classic! Mac, I don't even follow Rugby and even I know "they're really good." :-D

Glad you're liking the new job. Don't ever let them see you sweat. ;-D

Mac, what you do is after the semi-finals, you go to your local bookies and have a bet on the other team. You check the odds and select your stake in such a way so that you are guaranteed a profit.
