I am not a big tweeter. But Ellie does tweet a bit and Ruff-well he does but doesn’t let on. Anyway, yesterday Ellie came to school to say that the twittersphere is abuzz with recipes and stuff for chocolate cake, and about a million people had joined in. Ruff said he’d rather eat than tweet and hoped that there’d be a National chicken dijonnaise and Kripsy Kreme month soon. And then he said that, judging by some of the twitter profiles Ellie showed us, a few tweeters have been having a National Chocolate Cake decade, let alone week!
Thing is mobiles in school are a big discussion point. There’s the disruption argument; when people forget to turn them off in lessons and the theme to Mission Impossible starts up half way through Physics. We were all waiting for the Van de Graaff Generator to say ‘this message will self-destruct”…but it didn’t. Sigh!
But some people think it’s good to have mobiles in school in case of emergencies, like fires or the canteen running out of Piza bites (Ruff’s suggestion). And of course phones can be used to cheat during exams. But I still haven’t found the google page that tells you how to make a toffee-nosed invigilator stop sucking mints like a ‘hog in a trough’—Ruff’s description. That was well off-putting in the middle of drawing a Roman chariot for history, I can tell you.
Anyway, I don’t like chocolate cake that much. Give me a white chocolate-chip cookie any day of the week. But at least Ellie came up with some great tweets like this couple from Professor Snape; You’re a Hufflepuff?
#ThatMakesYouLookStupid and #ImBusy now. Can I ignore you some other time? That one was worth a retweet defo.
See you at Ballistas on Saturday? We may need to talk about the artefacts.
