This blog is going to be like a sponge for my spare time at work when my lesson plans are done and there is still time to fill. I am actually feeling much better about this school year after five weeks, mostly because I am remembering how to accept the kids as they are instead of realizing how much less they have going on than years gone by. There is a whole generation of people in the inner city that can easily be viewed as a massive waste of flesh, but that does no one any good.
So I relax.
I’m listening to the new KT Tunstall while I type this, it’s not as instantly accessible as her first record but still rather pleasant.
One thing I want to start on this blog? A question a day. Real open ended stuff, the kind of thing that used to be the basis for my classroom. (Before the waste-of-flesh generation, obv.) I’ll put today’s question in a new post after I get done rambling.
Tonight, you ask? Taco Salad with Genessee Cream Ale, lots of kissing with the wife, playing cards at Hobby League at 6:30, checking to see if the Mets can keep from drowning, lots of massage with the wife, a game or two of Cribbage, then sweet dreams.
Here’s the plan. I will also be using this blog to make a scrapbook of my peculiar mental condition, with corresponding links and a pics added with each bulging burst of my brain bursting through my fingers onto the keyboard and into your eyes. Hold on, I’ll get a pic and a link.
The drawing is of none other than my glorious wife Nina. We had it done by a caricature artist twelve years ago, at Sea World, on our first weekend date. The link is for the article I managed to sneak it into… so she could finally be the superhero that she has always been to me.
Here’s your link, for September 25th:
Thanks for hanging out with me today, I’ll see you tommorrow.
