Yay! Got an autistic child to finally like me. I just had to be over exuberant in my emotions. Now I sound reallllllllly happy to see him.
I won't get bitten so much now, I hopes.

My Mom is a teacher now. She is teaching Woman's Studies among other things at the College of the Redwoods. She says her first class was better than she could ever have imagined. Her students are way engaged and were able to tell her what they expected from the course. Her other class is on a Native American reservation--there she teaches a remedial English course. Also, she may have a shot at becoming the main (only) sociology professor at her college on a tenured track.
I'm just so happy for my Mom. She really deserves all this happiness.
It's strange though, my whole family teaches now. My parents are collage professors and I'm a school librarian. It must be in the genes.

Just applied to grad school. That's right--I'm an idiot and I can prove it!

I went shopping on Black Friday for the first time ever. Now I know why I have never done that before. People become insane if they think there might be a sale somewhere. And I was buying toys and clothes for a six-year-old girl so I could not even avoid the crowds by going in stores that are usually less crowded.
I think I saved quite a bit of money by shopping at Tuesday Morning, though. I got the kid a Barbi with a neighing horse, a wooden bird house to paint, a book, and a large stuffed dog. I got some free stuff for her as well from my Mom--a cow radio and a pink picture frame with fairy wings.
The clothes were the most expensive thing, but I got a good pair of shoes on sale. I can't understand how anything that will be grown out of so quickly can cost so much. People are stupid for allowing retailers to get away with that kind of crap.

Children prayed for my health last week. I got a UTI soon after. This is why church and state should be separated. Or something... I dunno. I'm just ticked because I have a burning need to pee all the time.

Apparently, because this little boy could not get ice cream, he decided to suck my blood instead.
Damn vampire children.

I was going to ask what other people are going to wear for Halloween this year, but then I realized that would be totally silly. No one reads my journal. Except Philip--you're so sweet.
But that's okay. Occasionally I read over my own journal to remember what I was doing this time last year and stuff. But, I wonder what happened to some of my older posts. I can't seem to get to the beginning of my journal. Do posts just disappear when LJ deems them too old? Or did I delete them in my sleep? I guess I should stop talking to myself now... Or at least writing to myself. It would be too much to ask that I stop TALKING to myself.
I wish someone I knew was having a Halloween party. I actually have a costume this year. I had to get one for work. The kids are going trick-or-treating in the building.

I know I have told some people, but have neglected to tell others--so here's the beef. The Right Reverend Eric "Nick" Franco will be officially officiating at my wedding.
We were going to go with whoever Philip's Mom picked, but the woman she wanted couldn't do it, so we went with MY mother's choice instead. So now you know where I gets the weirdness from.

|Found this on a friend's lj
I wondered how many of these questions I could answer. Some I totally fudged on. I don't know how I could have married a man without even knowing what his favorite cereal is! Read more to find out what else I don't know.( s.o. meme thingCollapse )

I made corn bread with masa for dinner because I was out of corn meal. It was weird. It wasn't exactly bad, but it isn't something I would consider making again.
Also, on a completely unrelated note, my dog likes small children. I found this out the other day when friends brought over their three-year-old girls. My dog just looooved them. I really wasn't expecting this. I was afraid he would be scared to death. He's afraid of linoleum for Pete's sake!

Just bought a wedding gown. It's just you're typical wedding gown. Philip says he'll wear a tux. We'll probably get married in a chapel. I know, it's totally snooze-worthy. But I'm going to invite all of my friends and pretend that this is my first marriage. If anyone can think of any non-main stream boring wedding things to do that won't shock the in-laws, please let me know about them. I just don't seem to have any creativity for either the first or second time around.

Spent quality time in my basement today. It felt rather foolish since there were no twisters in my area, just plenty of warnings. But it convinced me that the cat box needed cleaning (it's located in the basement) so some good came of being down there after all.
By the by, one of my cats is in heat. I have not gotten much sleep lately

I sniffle. Getting over ANOTHER cold.
I told Philip last night that I think my immune system has been racking up the xp. I think I may hear up-beat music every now and then...perhaps it's my immune system leveling up? I've had at least six different ailments since November. I wonder if that means the boss fight is coming up soon.

Life has become work...work has become life. I remember a time, not too long ago, when I used to see people and do things. I guess those days are over. Sigh. Current Mood: sad

|Valentine's Day heart break
So last week while I was away on vacation, two of my friends split up. It was, and still is a very sad thing. The split-up occurred due to a cheating incident. The poor girl was the one being cheated on. She found her boyfriend "Frenching" another girl. Then she apparently overhead them talking about having sex together later on. Obviously she was shocked. We all were... She and the boy in question are only four-years-old after all.
The teachers remain stumped as to the best sort of punishment for this "player" type of behavior. Obviously the boy should not have cheated on his girlfriend simply because she happened to be out sick that day and he was lonely for company. But it's also a free country and the two were not married or anything. And then there's the whole tongue kissing and fondling while underage issue... Where's the pre-school Doctor Phil when you need him?
As for me, I'm just sad that my poor friend ended up getting dumped for no good reason. I can only hope that she takes away an important lesson from all this heart break. Namely, four-year-old guys can't be trusted. And, as she'll soon find out, a lot of guys never really get any older than that.
Edit: Just in case it was not obvious, I am using the teacher definition of "friends" in the beginning of this post. I'm not sure why, but pre-school teachers refer to other students as "friends" rather than, say, "students" or "pupils". As in, "I know Billy called you a 'cunt', Sara, but we do not hit our friends."

Overheard comment by a four-year-old two days after MLK day:
"You know that big black guy? I saw him on the TV Monday. You know, that guy who had a dream...?"
