If there is something to desire,
there will be something to regret.
If there is something to regret,
there will be something to recall.
If there is something to recall,
there was nothing to regret.
If there was nothing to regret,
there was nothing to desire.

Where is my Depeche Mode breakup mix?

my students, part 1

Okay, so you guys know I have been teaching for a good couple of months.

For those who are just catching up, my students are a little nuts.

On the plus side, they say ridiculous things on a regular basis.

In an argument today with the bickering duo (names have been changed to protect the ridiculous):

Kee:  Your fat ass is going to rip its way out of those pants.

Cay:  Well if these pants rip, I’m going to sit on your face.

Kee:  Um…  That’s a little gay.

Far be it for me to take sides, but Cay, that is a lot gay.

a to do list for this blog

You know, I just can’t seem to get things done in a timely fashion.  Just to kick my bum into gear, I am going to write up the things that I have been knocking off of my 101 list, starting with these things:

  • Learn to tango.
  • Learn to make excellent risotto.
  • Find a hat that looks good on me.
  • Visit a friend who is far away.
  • Eat a mangosteen.
  • Grant a wish.
  • Write my Senator.
  • Write my Congressman.
  • Find a rockin’ pair of glasses.
  • Go a week without wearing make-up.
  • Storm out of a room, dramatically.
  • Get to 400 blog entries.
  • Learn the Presidents, Vice Presidents, and a few bizarre facts about each.
  • Have a conversation with a stranger.
  • Spend an entire day in my pajamas.
  • Read 5 books that I own, but haven’t read.
  • Finish 5 books that I have started.
  • Watch five movies that I pretend I’ve already seen.

While some aren’t, most of them are completed.  And bitches, I’ve got the photographic evidence to prove it!  That is, on some of them.  So by the end of next week, I will have completed my list of things on another list that I am to document.

Yeesh.

do you take it with milk or lemon?

I am asking this in a completely non-disparaging way:  What are the teabaggers protesting?

I have been seeing pictures on the news with gatherings of hundreds of people.  Some were calling for revolution while others secession, all carrying signs targeting the President and his administration.  Were they expecting that all of the economic troubles that began years ago to disappear within the first 86 days of the new Presidency?   Or maybe it has something to do with the unregulated bailout money doled out under Bush.
