7 AM Christy incredulous--partly because she can't believe it's so early, and partly because she saw the 847 herbal supplements and fiber shake I had for breakfast. Yeah, you can thank me for not showing it. Gross doesn't really capture the...essence of the shake.
7:15 AM The usual commute. Again, how many times can I show the tail lights? I gave in to a staged picture of the obligatory woman putting on make up in traffic. I hate that cliche. I do much more complex things, like pluck stray hairs on my chin.
8:00 AM I down a cup of green tea before going to teach a class. We won't discuss the...effects of so many herbs and such.
11:00 AM Round 1,356 of grading. It's interminable.
12:30 PM Wendy's has a really nasty salad. I'm guessing, I'm not getting another one.
1:00 PM The saga continues. More grading. Things are getting bloodier.
2:30 PM Hitting the stress ball. I didn't squeeze it, though. It was more fun to bounce it across the room to the wall. It came back every time. I had a rhtyhm going to the soundtrack of Dance with Me.
3:00 PM I entered the grades and got ready to split.
3:05 PM But first I spokewith Christy about the after school schedule.
4:00 PM As it happens, Jonathan had nothing going on, so we went home. There's Pol Pot in the picture. That cookie (yummy) was what's left of my birthday "cake." I shared it with the boy, who was already making his way towards it.
6:00 PM Gossiping with the coaches. That's Christy holding the lacrosse ball sack. Um, yeah, that's what those wenches delight in calling it. I'm sure there's a much more delicate way of putting it, but there you have it. Actually, if you've seen the musical, The Music Man, they actually say "Balzac!"
7:00 PM Vicky didn't have dinner with us, because she's not here, duh. So we used her spoon with the flower.
Bonus picture: GREEN
Okay, it's a bit washed out, but this stretch of road is really getting green. Only, the damned Bradford Pears are blooming, and they stink, really badly. Why would all the builders tear down the natural flora in this beautiful area and plant the smelliest trees in the world?
