Since I'm Still In Hiding ....

Grades are done, but I'm still in hiding (in case you haven't noticed) .... tomorrow I get to spend my hour of study-hall-usually-work-time meeting one-on-one with someone from the Board of Trustees Education Committee as they ask me (the religion teacher) about our school's "Catholic Identity." I just wish I knew what exactly they are wanting to hear, so I know what kind of spin I need to put on my possibly unorthodox classroom comments. Then, during my planning period I will attempt to give blood --- unless I'm my traditional 2 irons short. After that, it's bolt quickly home so that I can leave at 3:15 to drive to Indianapolis for a weekend conference for new nuns in the area about celibacy. Yeehaw.

And, of course, since Wednesday night has so evilly snuck up on me, me with wrinkled clothes in the dryer, a non-packed suitcase, some unplanned sub plans, and lots of other chaos ..... I guess we'll just have to wait until next week for the backlog of posts to come gushing out of my fingertips.

In the meantime, I'll share with you all a little something I picked up from Susan Rose ...
You Should Be a Joke Writer
You're totally hilarious, and you can find the humor in any situation. Whether you're spouting off zingers, comebacks, or jokes about life... You usually can keep a crowd laughing, and you have plenty of material. You have the makings of a great comedian - or comedic writer.

I hate hate hate writing sub plans. I always expend far too much effort for very little return. I'm tempted to just leave the instruction, "let them color," so that I don't have to deal with all the lousy work that will be left in a random mishmash on my desk.

Er...not to be a downer or anything.

Congratulations on finishing your grades!

I don't feel like posting my results to my blog, so here they are (I do not agree... I hate Sci-Fi):

You Should Be a Science Fiction Writer

Your ideas are very strange, and people often wonder what planet you're from. And while you may have some problems being "normal," you'll have no problems writing sci-fi. Whether it's epic films, important novels, or vivid comics... Your own little universe could leave an important mark on the world!
Hope your weekend goes well! I'm heading up to my Groovy Sisters--yay!!

Yeah, mine said sci-fi too, which disturbs me, but not as much as if it had said romance. Maybe I should write science nonfiction.


Sorry I missed you this weekend (although I won't be of much use...) but more so that I didn't get to wish you luck with the Indy talk. Break a leg, and hey, if this nun thing doesn't work out you can always go into comedy.

Oh, gee, Steph! Two years hanging out with the sems at Meinrad, and you don't know how to spin Catholic identity? We've failed you completely.

By the way, anon, I feel the same way about subs. It was almost never worth it. They never did what I asked them to do, and they always let some kid talk them into believing that what I wrote down was not what I truly meant. And the papers were always left in a mess on my desk, even if I left a nice manilla folder and a paper clip and instructions and everything. Not worth getting sick.
