Nearly Finished

Well, the book is nearly finished now, although the proposed cover of myself dressed as Mohammed, swigging from a bottle of Carlsberg has just been rejected by the publishers for reasons not clear to me at the moment.

'It's Your Time You're Wasting' should be in the bookstores for the first week of September 2006. It’s basically the story of my teaching career (I struggle to say the word ‘career’ with a straight face) trying and failing miserably to deal with a bunch of kids whose names are like a bad hand at Scrabble and whose parents would regard joining the underclass as a much sought-after promotion.

Great Cover Idea as long as you don't mind living in secrecy under armed guard for the rest of your life!

If you were to dress up as Jesus or Buddha, you might get a few complaints; but if you were to dress up as Mohammed, you would quite possibly be murdered.

Hmm... what does this say?

Why is this a problem?

"career (n): To travel wildly out of control. Normally in a downwards direction"
