Teaching Kids To Spend
After that we decided to sample the eloquent delights of "Hardcore". A drink we discovered in Asda and labelled as "apple brew" and costs you only 75p for a litre. Suprisingly, it didn't taste too bad. We got 6 bottles of the stuff, along with a couple of crates and whiskey to wash it down. Had a pretty good night there in Cliftonville.
The next day involved an early start at my friends house. 3 crates at 2pm was how the day was spent in good company. Had a lovely stroll around Milmead in the early hours too.
After waking up there, with nasuea and a headache (as natural karma commands) we walked a friend back about half-way home and then got breakfast from a greasy spoon. A bacon sandwich and a can of coke are always good for a hangover.
Afterwards was onto the days events which was the local band 5-a-side football tournament. Our team came last (expectedly). This is because we are terrible at football and my arm is still in a sling, plus I played in chelsea boots. So there you go.
With the competition lost onto another friends house for the England match. Feeling quite ill after drinking constantly for near 3 days, with only 2 signifact breaks, I stayed off the beer. I also nearly fell asleep watching England play. I retreated to the back room with a couple of people to listen to music, treating ourselves to such classics as The Kinks, Stranglers and an excellent soul compilation CD.
With the match over, I ambled home and thus here I am. Feeling much better than earlier.
Now for something with some actual substance. It seems my school (Dane Court Grammar) have taken to allowing advertising in school. I don't just mean a company running something like a "Get Active" thing or whatever, I mean literally a huge massive poster advertising the latest Lindsy Lohan movie and to a lesser extent McFly's new single. We looked over the poster and there was nothing to do with education in the slightest. This happens to come at the same time as 3 large TVs in the school have appeared on walls.
It's all very curious. As far as I knew a school is not a corporate hunting ground and should never be considered so. Upon the looking up the legalities it seems there are none and that the current government infact encourage corporate links to schools.
Well, we decided we would put up our own poster.
A nice picture of our Head and Deputy Head. I'm thinking they should use my suggested motto from now on.
And theres a picture of our posters on the giant advert.
I don't think our posters survived the day, but ah well.
Peoples opinions on advertising in school?
