the weather outside is frightful

and I don't have a fireplace.

Today went really well. It was a lesson on Civil War battles. They were curious about things like bonesaws and digging bodies up to rebury them. Everyone loves that stuff.

I only got up the gumption to write something for 2 reasons:

1) Because I want to complain about having to go to class from 3:20-7 because it suuuucks.

2) It's my mom's birthday and I wanted to send a shout-out! Happy birthday Mom! She's mphmphmm years old. That was her holding her hand over my mouth. Now that she took her hand away, I can tell you that she's over 500 years old. She's actually a Biblical patriarch, and has 800 children. Ha ha just kidding. It doesn't matter how old she is, since she is a beautiful and caring person at any age. Awwwwww................ (Mom--send money)

I don't want to go to class! Maybe there will be an avalanche so I don't have to go. Or God will finally decide to mete out final justice and this whole place will be destroyed with a single bolt of lightning. Or maybe a giant pencil or book. That would be more fitting.

This comment is from Lory's mom. Thanks, daughter dear, for remembering my birthday and making me famous by including me on your blog. Don't forget that my age is celebrated in a Beatles' song; how special is that?

Kids love gore. No way around it. Please don't show them Glory. Everytime my son covers the Civil War they show them Glory. Don't get me wrong it is a great movie and all but enough.

All I can do is offer my support with the classes after student teaching all day. I hated it. Towards the end of my student teaching semester I would just get up and walk out of my college class when the class time was over. I didn't who had project to present or if the prof was imparting some "pearl of wisdom" What a total waste of time. I always felt there something else better I could be doing.
Happy Birthday to Newoldteachers MOM! Hope you have many many many more.

Great that you're posting again, NOST. Can I call you that? Anyway, your blog is hilarious, and I think you get it from your parents. In fact, I'm pretty sure you get it from your parents. Kudos.

Actually Mom is only 498. Our mantra is "Will you still need me, will you still feed me when I'm 564." Dad
