Fuck you, Athens, GA art suppliers
For those of you who might be out scouring the town for gray construction paper like I was today, do yourself a favor a favor and stop. You'd think that gray construction paper was a rare commodity. It was like we were searching for the Arc of the Covenant. Sweet, history major BG suggested that we just buy grey Canson paper for my 80+ students to use in their collages. I pointed out to him that it was $2.00 a sheet (on sale), not a pack.
So it's off to the ATL tomorrow and I'm not happy about it, but a lot happier than I'll be with nothing to give my students but more computer paper and a helpless shrug.

By the way, in case you are wondering, I still have no supplies and no budget. I'm thinking of writing a book about the 101 best things to make with cheap white paper. Most of these kids don't know the difference between drawing paper and computer paper anyway. I had better stuff at the elementary school...

I have the need for speed
Well...at least for a few drinks anyway.

Is anybody out there?
Not only are postings slim pickins lately, comments are few and far between. I know we're all busy, but you guys aren't doing a good job of keeping me entertained (hee hee).

My dream last night:
This blog was animated, and it was awesome! I was also surrounded by pets and the X-Men. For those of you who know her, Susan Gunter was a new addition to the X-Men. I think she was a computer wiz, and had some wicked glasses.

Who are the adwizards who came up with that one?
Would anyone want to take an aerobics class called boot camp (this is a rhetorical question)?

Isn't this duplicitous?
I'm taking a class on the web: survey of criminal justice. Each week our professor proposes a question and our assignment is to respond (big surprise). Well, this week he asks the basic question: what is criminal justice? More specifically, should we follow the crime control or due process model? Of course, our answers don't have to be so straightforward. I'm amazed at the willingness of several of my classmates to give up personal liberties "for the greater good"--if I get searched for no particular reason, who cares? i mean, if it may prevent crime then by all means do it (that's, of course, a simplification of their thoughts). I have a feeling they may be conservative, considering they've mentioned the Patriot Act without following it with disparaging remarks; these might be the very people that oppose big government in some areas, while wanting it in criminal justice. And when they read 1984, what did they say? Yeah, Big Brother? Furthermore, there's a continuous disregard for treating criminals as human beings. Despicable, in some ways, they may be, but they still are humans and deserve constitutional rights, as well.

This one's for you Ms. Comrade.

It's about time.

And While Jensen Read a Book On Marx
She promptly fell asleep, due to a long, but exciting weekend in Athens.
Here are the highlights:
-- Managed to gather a rather large group for drinks at the Manhattan Saturday night
--Went to Commerce (outlet malls) on Sunday. I walked away with no striped clothes, which is quite an accomplishment if you know me.
--Mame made a delicious dinner that night. We watched the spelling bee/ribwich episode of the Simpsons, which had one of Ralph's best quotes to date. Bart is spelling "imply." Nelson says "ha, ha Bart is pee." Ralph says, "i just made Bart in my pants."
--Watched Lilo and Stitch afterwards. I had to try my hardest to not cry. It's the most endearing movie since the Iron Giant.
--Ate at Pollo Loco/Salsa Rock 2 on Monday before I left. Watched an episode of Strangers with Candy at a friend's house--had no idea how funny it was.
--The trip home is increasingly banal. This time, although, there was a Shell gas station that made my day. As you pumped gas, CNN was on the t.v. on the outside payment screen. Of course, it cuts off when you're done. Hmmm, are they trying to say that the larger your car, the more you need to watch the news? Just a hunch.
--The latest Pernice Bros. record is possibly one of my favorite albums of this year. Not much different from Chappaquiddick Skyline--more upbeat i suppose--but that's fine by me.
