saw smiley, fellow first-year this morning. walked in with him. he was joking, as always. very good way to begin the school day.
got my boards cleaned up and the weekly calendars put up...and still had time to grab mail and breakfast before department meeting (which doesn't go on the good list).
my first-hour kids were really into masque of the red death. they even indulged me when i had them close their eyes and imagine things...or maybe they were sneaking in a quick nap.
my seniors missed me. we even had a discussion of "their language" vs. what i had when i was growing up. it was quite amusing...and they were still surprised to learn i know the meaning of "skeet skeet".
3rd, 5th and 6th hours i had scheduled a quiz, so i had time to look at essays.
i let my weasel know that in no way, shape or form was i going to allow him to be my friend on facebook. he laughed and asked why not, saying, "but miss anonymous, i thought we were buds!!"
about 1/2 hr. ago smiley fellow first-year asked me out on a date...again. he's an attractive man, and as i said, he's really fun. what an ego boost!! (obviously i said no. i'll keep my geek)
beginning the first morning of the week...especially after a break...with department meetings just rains on my parade!!
punky is still in in-house...she has to fix her essay and make up a quiz. she's going to be so pissed when she gets back!! a regular bundle of joy, i'm assuming.
i still have essays to grade...and there's a new stack of quizzes to work on.
discussing union stuff during lunch. gah!!
having a haircut tomorrow when i'd rather be at student council...but i have to be pretty for my interview.
one of my first hour girls stopped me in the hallway on my way to class. she had a black eye and looked as if she'd been crying. she told me she had to go down to counselling. i didn't see her for the rest of the day. and i'm worried like it's my j-o-b.
