Man, it’s been an exhausting few weeks. I expect the madness to continue for one more, and then I expect a sudden, dramatic silence. Three days a week, I teach these courses and it’s all I have the mental and physical energy to do, despite a four-hour break between classes. I had grand visions for […]

I’m behind on everything because I’ve had a cold all week. I’m almost better so more deep thoughts by me are just around the corner. It’s time for the annual Friday 5 Scattergories-inspired questions. What random letter was generated by the online random-letter generator (this doesn’t really count as one of your five questions)? I rolled a […]

A Couple of Memes

Sunday Stealing. Last time you had butterflies in your stomach? Probably about a year ago when I interviewed for this job. I was nervous and spoke WAY too much and altogether too quickly, but my boss said I did okay. What was your last alcoholic beverage? I had a beer Friday night, some orange-flavored Blue […]

A Movie Meme

Gee, Our Old LaSalle Ran Great

Might as well finish this, since it’s a part two. Taken from here. Talk Shows. Do you watch daytime talk TV? If so, do you prefer the calm shows like Oprah or the wilder side like Jerry Springer? I have never cared for these, not even in the pre-daytime wars days, when Phil and Oprah […]

But First

Oh, why the heck not?  You know what they say about deadlines. Today’s 3 on Thursday. Other than sleep and eat, what is your favorite thing to do? Read. Of course.

From here. What field trips, one from elementary school and one from high school, do you remember most fondly? I loved field trips. Loved them so much. The world is our classroom; that was the lesson I learned from even the earliest years. It’s something that has stuck with me, in my everyday life and […]

Bonus Meme Questions, 1

From here.   What did you dissect in high school? An earthworm (I have a photo somewhere) and a fetal pig.  I never got to do a frog because my biology teacher wasn’t into that.  The earthworm and pig were for AP Bio.  I hate to say it, but it was pretty fun. In what […]
