Not very wacky, but when I was 14 the teacher deputed to go to the nearest town to buy that year's prizes apparently went to considerable lengths to get my requested copy of Lawrence Durrell's Alexandria Quartet (for English). New books (especially fat ones) didn't come my way very often in those days and I am eternally grateful to her for taking the trouble. It took me a while to get to grips with it, but it was a revelation when I did.

How lucky your teacher was to have a child so inclined to try something so adventurous. Lucky you to have a thoughtful teacher too. I was never so kind in teh classroom, thoguh I did spend a small fortune on chocolate (bribery) and stationery (necessity if I wanted them to do any work).

Fab blog.

I'll be coming back :0)
