Made it through the week. This afternoon was a bit brutal, but I wrote 'Topics' on the board before going for an early 10-minute break. Just said "Anything you want to talk about, write on here. If you don't write anything, you're stuck with my ideas." They put a few things, so we discussed those for the next two hours, and that worked well. Just glad it's over. Played hacky-sack with Lily and little Angel for an hour and a half afterwards to wind down. Now seven days of zero obligation to look forward to.
Found a really cool artist - Dave Allsop - purely by fluke. (image on the left is one of his) Check 'em out if you're into twisted and interesting works. I like his characters page. Reminds me of a perversion of the stuff 'Labyrinth' concept designer Brian Froud did. (Be wary of the "Dark Stuff" link in there... it truly is a pageant of the grotesque and warped, which can be good or bad depending on your preferences...)
I've got some pictures from Thursday night's mixed classes activity up on Flickr. The students had a decent time. It was a combination of the Conversation B and C classes, plus my EF 5s. About 26 of them total. We played an international trade game, and they had a blast using the negotiation language we'd (myself and Andrew) had taught them earlier this week. I hosted it, and Andrew and Michelle played the traders.
