Well, hello blog. It has been some time. My life has been consumed with hunting for apartments, scouring for cheap furniture, and trying to convince my parents that this will be the year i will figure out what i am going to do with my life. I found a great coffee table at Goodwill for $3.99. I painted it lavender yesterday at Jon Fox's apartment. Yesterday was a wonderfully unremarkable day.
The fun things:
-I listen to NPR everyday during my 45 minute commute to work. Between the bland stories of republican and democrat politicians fighting over who can create more jobs one can catch lovely stories. For example, this lady in Juno, Alaska found her dog's alive, but petrified body clamped between the teeth of a grizzly bear. Without giving much thought to the predicament, she punched the bear in the face. The bear was so stunned; it let her dog go in peace.
-Jon and I read excerpts from Demetri Martin's book, This is a Book. http://www.amazon.com/This-Book-Demetri-Martin/dp/0446539708
read it. it will make you laugh.
-I am taking my kids to the Sounder's game on Saturday.
-I eat popcorn every night before bed.
-I've been watching a BBC television series, The Hour. It is about the BBC and conspiracy and treason and censorship. It is great.
The bad things:
-I have to fill out rebates and make dentist appointments. I've never been good about paying attention to detail.
-Some of the students I work with could not identify nor define the "war on terror." Shit, only about half of them knew what happened on 9/11. They clapped when Bin Laden died though.
-The east coast is flooding.
The interesting things:
-The last day of summer camp one of my students climbed a tree and pooped off a branch in front of a group of kids.
-I have a higher degree than my boss. He is paid twice as much as me.
I'm sorry to disappoint you. None of this is particularly interesting or thought provoking. I hope to write more soon. sigh.
Sometimes I wish I could punch all of my bad things in the face and get my dog back... if you know what I mean.
