Re: New Quest Available!

I'm already accused of having a "secret language" with one of my students who is into nerd-culture. I don't think a pop-quiz on such would do him any good.

Re: New Quest Available!

I was tempted, but have decided against, giving all of my classes pop-quizzes on Wednesday and then give it to them as extra credit.

Re: The depressing depression thread

Still single, and as it's approaching a lifeaversary, I have been contemplating why. My realization comes down to this: The guys who have the personality and intellect to attract my brain are too self-confident to accept anyone who lives under this amount of blubber. Or rather, I deem them worthy of...

Re: New Quest Available!

The timing of this quest was rather perfect for me. The school musical performance was this week. "Seussical the Musical", which I had never heard of much less seen. I've been hearing bits and pieces of the music down the hall... and I know that two of my students are Horton and The Cat in...

Re: New Quest Available!

My goal (set AND accomplished already) this week was to finally find a home for the dishes in the dishwasher, and LOAD those that were stacked up in my sink. I came home over my lunch break today and did just that. Then I scrubbed down counters AND mopped the kitchen floor. yay me!

Re: New Quest Available!

Done... rewrote it twice, trying to get it right. Shredded it in the trash can. Threw the trash out. *hugs* I actually do this about once a year. It's cathartic. BTW, Fayfay, I would like to reactivate the 'clean a room' quest. I remembered it in the middle of my cleaning marathon today, and then ch...

*hugs* Betsy - the comfort level is a HUGE thing with grad school. BF will adjust... and if he doesn't... you're an engineer, you're at no loss for other options. Not to say it would be easy, but you have to consider whether putting the relationship ahead of the education is worth it to you. *hugs* ...

I'll add my voice to the support of Betsy on her crusade to conquer the seismic competition. Betsy is an awesome fem-engi-nerd, with a great personality and bright future. Her only negative is residing in the Bay area, that is way too far away and soooper expensive. ;) If I had money, I'd give it to...

Oh, Fay... Your challenge this week hits upon a a weakness of mine. I am a sucker for writing freeverse.

Restless tossing
Sleep late with bad dreams
Attempt self-esteem booster, failed
Grocery and pizza, but damn its cold
No snow, so schools on the morrow
Tests prepared for the week
Cold feet, empty bed

I told my students a joke this week... but being as it was during class, no phones were allowed to record such things...

"What do you call a bear with no teeth?"

"A gummy bear..."
