You know, it just occurred to me that I haven't updated this blog since Bob Weir's birthday. Let's see... how to recap the past few weeks into one post?
In no particular order...
I bought Halloween candy for all my students. That cost a pretty penny. I then handed out candy to trick-or-treaters here in the 'hood. That was fun, though I'm not very good with kids.
Courtesy of a joint co-operation between some of my students and Urban Dictionary, I learned the gaming term "teabagging." 'Nuff said on that one.
I read four essays from students telling me that PS3 is better than Xbox 360.
And one that World of Warcraft is better than City of Heroes/City of Villains.
I made gnocchi for the first time. It wasn't the disaster I feared it would be.
Got observed for work. Same day, a student brought his guitar to class and played "Dust in the Wind." During the break, of course. That was pretty cool. Speaking of guitar, I've been practicing mine almost every night. Mainly Grateful Dead tunes, but I occasionally mix it up.
I bought my own video game system. Betcha can't guess what it was! I also bought a Blu-Ray of Woodstock stuff and a Grateful Dead scrapbook. Early birthday gifts to myself.
Having four (4) parties at school next week to celebrate my birthday. Two of the classes really got into it and seem really excited.
Finally watched In Cold Blood, Dead Poets Society, and the original Stepford Wives.
Anyway, my birthday is coming up on Tuesday. I'm sad to see 25 go--it was such a good year. Andre says that 26 will probably be even better. I hope she's right.
