... I'm already tired of working. For the year. But I'm not alone. This email just came to us at school. Apparently there's a lot of folks not wanting to dig into work today.
(Actually, I think I'm still bitter about having to work on New Year's Day. Yes, I'm sure of it. Even though it's been a week. A short week. So, I'm up for a diversion.)
Here are some things to do if you just can't get yourself back into teaching yet. If nothing else, you'll look busy!
Go to Google
1. Type “Where is Chuck Norris” and click “I’m feeling lucky”.
(Or if you have autocomplete choose Where is Chuck Norris and Mouse over to I’m feeling lucky on the right.)
2. Type Askew
3. Type What is the loneliest number?
4. Type ‘ooglegay igpay atinla’ and click I’m feeling lucky.
5. Type Google Gravity then select and click I’m feeling lucky
6. Go to Google.com/Preferences, click on Languages on the left side. At the top where Google asks “Which language should Google Products use?” Click the down arrow next to English and you can choose a new display language like – Klingon, Hacker, Elmer Fudd, or Bork! Bork! Bork! (The language of the Swedish Chef from the Muppet Show).
7. Type Do a barrel roll
8. Type Epic Google and click the I’m Feeling Lucky button.
9. Type in Elgoog then click I’m Feeling Lucky button.
10. Type in Google Hacker and click I’m Feeling Lucky button.
11. Play PacMan in Google - Go to http://www.google.com/pacman/ (Click the Insert Coin Button to play – arrow keys to navigate)
12. Type in Google Sphere, then click the “I’m feeling lucky” button.
13. Type recursion, when Google asks “Did you mean – recursion” Click the word recursion again and again…
14. To find the numeric value of “Once in a blue moon” enter the phrase and press enter.
15. Try searching for the answer to life, the universe, and everything.
That should help. If all else fails, try going back to teaching. If not, see number 1.
