An Exercise in Avoidance

8 04 2010

I should be studying for the exam I will be taking on Monday on a subject I should know much about having taught in Korea for 16 months but have discovered I know near nothing when it comes to rules, standards, regulations, etc. with regard to ESL teaching in the United States which is why I am studying and oh, lawd.

So instead I am finally writing a new post after several weeks of working, showering, studying, eating, and sleeping, repeat.  I went to a roller derby match with a friend a while back, and below are pictures.  Please note that my preferred team is kicking ass.  Please also note that before that evening, I had no preferred team whatsoever.  Winners are drawn to other winners, I suppose….

Also, there are some pictures of an Adventure With Stuffies, taken several months ago at my BF’s house in Carbondale, Colorado.  Just thought I’d put them out there so that everyone reading this can understand  just how cute my life is sometimes.

Also, a picture taken in February of the unprecedented snowfall.  The town was near incapacitated.

And finally, a tune.

A Cheerful Corner Of This Universe

25 11 2008

A few weeks ago my kindergarten class and I were discussing the intricate anatomy of, say, lima beans and I begged my supervisor to allow a little hands-on project. Well, these are the fruits of our labors, thus far, including a couple of clandestine side-projects of pumpkin and marigold seeds. My kids have responded handsomely to the project with diagrams, observation sheets, hypotheses, long-term goals and plans, and a heavy discussion of what to do with the profits from our farmer’s market sales come spring. Oh, my little burgeoning hippies!!!
