good stuff: tania starts tomorrow & im looking forward 2 have another newbie around as well as another person who’s, yanno, not a teenager. like, nikki was in the year above me when i was at college so we seem 2 get on okay, and idk how old binita is she could be anywhere between 25 and 40 but just perma-youthful but the other two only being 19 makes me feel kinda…. weirdly??? uncool or soemthing lmfao, idk i keep getting all these old anxieties like walking past groups of students in the corridor like??? are they laughing at me??? so fuckin dumb i dont need 2 be scared of 16-19-year-olds theyre not scary they dont know jack, plus im getting paid 4 this so they r the tru nerds
but nO positives alright: tania’s starting tomorrow and im looking forward 2 seeing her. also when i was in the staff room i was getting all anxious as i do and george went ‘what are u getting stressed about? come on, open body language’ so i did open body language like forced myself 2 do it and i actually felt pretty good about it and then he goes ‘fuck, you’re tall when you’re not all hunched’ and im like lOL &&& i successfully collected up all the practical apparatus and put it in another room without asking for confirmation 90 times

Nancy Wake, who has died in London just before her 99th birthday, was a New Zealander brought up in Australia. She became a nurse, a journalist who interviewed Adolf Hitler, a wealthy French socialite, a British agent and a French resistance leader. She led 7,000 guerrilla fighters in battles against the Nazis in the northern Auvergne, just before the D-Day landings in 1944. On one occasion, she strangled an SS sentry with her bare hands. On another, she cycled 500 miles to replace lost codes. In June 1944, she led her fighters in an attack on the Gestapo headquarters at Montlucon in central France.
Ms Wake was furious the TV series [later made about her life] suggested she had had a love affair with one of her fellow fighters. She was too busy killing Nazis for amorous entanglements, she said.
Nancy recalled later in life that her parachute had snagged in a tree. The French resistance fighter who freed her said he wished all trees bore “such beautiful fruit.” Nancy retorted: “Don’t give me that French shit.”
"strangled an SS sentry with her bare hands"
"too busy killing Nazis for amorous entanglements"
"don’t give me that French shit."
I wasn’t ready.
