Crying! Perfect lunchtime entertainment and diversion from painting (and Lemon Drizzle Cake woman)

SummerRain Fri 20-Sep-13 12:37:58

Love it grin

this is one of my favourite science tunes, I've never forgotten Avogadro's number since (although frequently forget it's called Avogadro's number blush)

Or if famous scientists set to cheesy dance music is more your thing I humbly submit Symphony of Science

grin

Ooh, they're good summer

DS currently likes this: Fractals Zoom and gets to watch it as a reward at school hmm

He also likes this though which is probably more my style: Just a Boring Square

Ah yes, Lemon Drizzle Cake woman. Lost half an hour to that thread....

SummerRain Fri 20-Sep-13 13:09:34

The fractals one is amazing, ds1 will love it too when I show him.

If my evolution course were this entertaining I'd be sorted grin

Last one before I do some real work

SummerRain Fri 20-Sep-13 13:10:28

Ha, I've lost far too much time to that LDC thread too.

SummerRain Fri 20-Sep-13 13:23:52

OK, honestly the last one.... been looking for it for the last hour but couldn't remember what it was called

quark song

The guy who does that one has a whole science series on youtube that's educational and funny for any of you with geeky kids, he lists them under the name crashcourse, here's a link to one that is used to revise yesterday chicken teeth

You are all horrible and I blame you for my procrastinating... grin

This week has been hellacious, and I am thrilled that the weekend is upon us (although getting blind drunk and hiding behind the furnace seems like an awesome idea right now...)

Bee's new school is a dismal failure. I'll be posting a thread about it, but it is so hideous as to be comical if it weren't actually happening

Our dog has been ill for a few days - we were finally able to get her to the vet yesterday and have her checked, and we had quite the scare. Her xray was "textbook" for advanced heartworm disease... we waited one of the longest 15 minutes of our lives waiting for the rapid test to let us know if she was actually infected - all the while trying to figure out how we were going to thell the children. Thankfully she is not - apparently she has asthma (seriously?!?) but after just 2 doses of antibiotics (even though there was no fluid in her lungs, the doc wanted to be certain) and steroids, she has all bus stopped coughing and is still breathing quickly, but is definitely more comfortable.

DS is struggling with inappropriate behaviour at school - things I have been bringing up for quite literally years are suddenly an issue because one of his 7 teachers has brought it up. I am calling Community Living today to see if I can get a support person for him...

Otherwise, life is just ducky.

I shall look at these later... They are my sort of thing, but I have to go to the dentist! smile

Galena Fri 20-Sep-13 14:03:02

Lemon drizzle cake woman?

ouryve Fri 20-Sep-13 14:03:06

I really must resist those other links and get into the much needed, inviting (honestly) hot bath that is waiting for me, in time to cool down again before i go pick the boys up.

I love the finish of this Laura Ashley paint, but it bloody stinks.

Beemom [chocolate] (I still have half a bar left)

FrussoHathor Fri 20-Sep-13 15:59:45

Dds taxi is 10 minutes late. Why do I always think the worse?

SummerRain Fri 20-Sep-13 16:04:02

because worry is our natural state of being Frusso smile Hope she turns up soon

(honestly, In am trying to study but bloody seawater chemistry is hard to concentrate on blush)

FrussoHathor Fri 20-Sep-13 16:16:55

Phew, was late because the taxi was late getting to her rather than her behaviour.
Definately a natural state of being summer

PolterGoose Fri 20-Sep-13 16:22:56

BeeMom wine and cake and flowers

Ds reported having a lovely lunch play with his best friend feeding crane flies to spiders shock I commented that I thought he believed that people who kill bugs "don't deserve to live" and he replied that his was ok because there are billions of crane flies and they were only picking the "weak ones" and that this was a good thing as it meant only the strong crane flies were left to breed which is good for all crane flies hmm crane fly eugenics. I suggested that as there are billions of people perhaps I could feed him to a shark, this was obviously a ridiculous idea grin

Quite a good week here dd2 has had a happier week settling into new school

PolterGoose Fri 20-Sep-13 16:50:05

That's fab autumn grin how's she doing with the transport now?

autumnsmum Fri 20-Sep-13 17:11:16

Thanks polter she's doing better now she has a fantastic escort who says she chats every day

stuckonsmallrock Fri 20-Sep-13 17:47:13

It has been a good week here, AS DD1 won star of the week at school for "knowing right from wrong" smile smile it made me chuckle. I love all the links above, as will DD1. When my DH gets home tomorrow I'll get him to find all the fractal & geometry games he has hidden on the pc so I can post links. (They are hidden so DD1 doesnt spend her entire life playing them).

Thepoodoctor Fri 20-Sep-13 17:49:50

Sorry to hear about school rubbish BeeMom. On the other hand, most pleased the dog is improving! You must have been so worried.

DS having picked up his head teachers award and had quite a good day, had the worlds most humongous meltdown coming out of school.

On the plus side, having come out of it he's brought me a packet of skittles, given me a huge hug, told us all he loves us and he's very sorry and he will go swimming (part of the point at issue) because he wants to be nice and do what I want. This would not have happened six months ago ...

He then made me cry completely by asking if he could stay in bed for the weekend so that he doesn't get into trouble sad

Thepoodoctor Fri 20-Sep-13 17:50:50

Frusso and small rock that's brill!

RippingYarns Fri 20-Sep-13 18:25:24

is the bar open sad

sorry i'm not being very supportive this week, have been using MN as a distraction

DDs school is full of lying and duplicitous arsewipes and i'm having a good drink and cry

the meeting with the new senco was worse than bad, i hate the academy ethos the school is embracing

can i have some wine cake and kick up the arse to help me apply for SA so i can move her to somewhere that cares she pisses her pants please?

Ripping winewinewine, cake, and [chocolate] all freely given.
