I've heard of students not wanting to be at school because they stayed at a party too late the night before. The teachers usually figure it out and give them a hard time - it's one of my teaching strong points.
However, I never expected it to be the other way around. Tonight was the Christmas party for all the teachers. I thought I'd be in and out so I could get a desperately needed good nights sleep. That's not quite how it went. All I'm going to say is that a good time was had by all. Or, at least, a very good time was had by some. I practically had to sneak out. I'll tell the story tomorrow.
One more class - at 7:45 AM - then I'm on Christmas break. It's about time to start preparing for the relaxing activity of Trans-Atlantic travel.
Hungarian phrase of the day:
Pronounced Nem (rhymes with them) Two-dumb. It means "I don't know". It's appropriate because I didn't prepare a word. Therefore, all I could think was "I don't know what to write!". Never overlook the obvious.
