Another post about nothing...but I couldn't keep this to myself.

Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail, and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. this made him...

... A super-calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

Nothing important to say...

But go here for a cool video of a guy and his guitar
. The visual isn't much, but the boy can he play.

I suddenly have the urge to make friends with a nintendo nerd. I haven't played Mario in a looooooonnnggg time.

M: What was that?!?
G: Huh? what?
M: Just then...driving?
G: a llama.
M: oh. ok. thanks.

M: Wait! A llama?
G: Yes, is that a problem?
M: Well, kind of. Why is a llama driving?
G: Because it can.
M: No it can't! Llamas can't drive!
G: That one was.

M: This hurts. Llamas cannot drive golf carts.
G: Have you discussed this with the llamas?
M: ~growl~ No. What did I do to deserve this?
G: ~shrug~ Got up early for coffee?


I am not insane! Well, not because I see driving llamas. It made the news...people were spotting it all over town. There is still no reasoning available, but the working assumption is that it was a bet and a very realistic costume.

Normally, I wouldn't post about a school day here...but....really..it is just about today....and my over-use of elipses.

So, I'm positive I set my alarm last night. In fact I have proof. I was talking to Texas at the time...and...the alarm was still set this morning. I don't know if I just turned it off this morning or what. My bet is that it actually did ring. I just ignored it and eventually the machine gave up on me. (Imagine a small blue clock thowing its hands into the air and muttering "I give up. She ain't gettin' her ass outta bed today!")

As it was I had 10 minutes to get to school...before class was supposed to start. I'm sporting the scrubby, just rolled out of bed look...pigtails, bandanna, jeans, and sandals. I forgot my glasses. ~sigh~ I forgot my lunch. ~sigh~ A group of students has already written a letter to the principal complaining about my hair gear. They don't think its fair that a teacher can wear a bandanna while they can't. Thankfully, the administration is on my side. The official ruling? "Students and teachers follow different codes of conduct, which includes clothing. If you want to wear a bandanna here...go to college and come back with your BA and a teaching degree." ~sigh~

Bruises and soarness from my shoulders to the balls of my feet. There are even strange lil marks near my elbows from the zipties. Woo-hoo!

It has been a long week. The school blog has been updated....it explains the long week. I am going to take a bath and head to bed early. Tomorrow, I have plans to go play in Phoenix. Hopefully, there will be some lovely bruises to get me through the three-day weekend.

I'm not normally one to judge people or force my beliefs on others, but.....


It's just a movie. It won't make you gay. It won't crumble your religious beliefs. But if by chance something does change....then maybe it was supposed to. If your thoughts and beliefs are so fragile that a movie can damage you, perhaps you should reevaluate.

Sometimes my ability to be strangely literal is badly timed.

H: Hi, can I talk to you about "Citywide Insurance"?
M: As opposed to "Just-this-block Insurance"?
H: (very frustrated) It's just a name...you don't have to be rude!

There was no explaining that I hadn't meant to be rude.

New Year's in Las Vegas

1. If you recieved a random "Gin Blossoms - Happy NY" message, followed by a garbled phone call......I was trying to tell you I was at the Gin Blossoms concert. The song was "Allison Road" even though you probably couldn't tell.

2. Also saw the "Spin Doctors" in concert

3. Cheap drinks

4. Six people, two beds and an airmattress

5. Pirates that wore bondage gear to flirt with the Sirens

6. Tangerine Burlesque

7. Befriending one of the original singers from "The Platters"

8. Reconnecting with a good friend

9. Hooking up with a hot guy

10. Scary, bright green jello-like relish with what appeared to be cinnamon to top a hotdog. (Not my dinner!)

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
