Lunchtime Bullets

  • My discussion group went fine last night. I almost ran out of things to talk about, but I just made it to the end of my 45 minutes. By luck of the draw my group was less than responsive and pretty much non-participatory. I did a free-association-brainstorming activity with them and it was like pulling teeth. I can't believe that there are really six people on the planet that can't think of a single word in association with race or ethnicity or culture. Maybe they were giving me a taste of what it might be like to work with moody teenagers.
  • I also had a little difference of opinion with one of my group members (fortunately after I was done and in no way related to my topic) about the affect humans are having on global warming. She said none at all. Oh boy. I guess that means I should run out and buy a Hummer.
  • I managed to do a little raking this weekend (no small miracle given the activity-packed two days it was). I filled two containers and two bags. Who knows when I'll have another chance to do more. Maybe all of the leaves will blow into my neighbors' yard and save me the trouble...
  • Do I have to explain how nice it is to have no class tonight? And tomorrow night! Yay! I see hours of uninterrupted TV watching in my future.
  • I still haven't figured out what I'm doing for Thanksgiving. I've received two invitations: my step-mom's mother and a friend of a co-worker who makes an occasional appearance on a blog I read regularly. I'm torn, as I would prefer to stay home and eat a whole store-bought apple pie by myself. But seeing as how the second invite came from a friend of two people I know and like, I'm sure I would have a good time. If I were a social person, that is.
  • Somehow I accidentally bought frozen enchiladas without cheese and with excessive spice. Note to self: read packaging more carefully in future. No cheese = not worth eating.

Exactly! No cheese? What's the point?

I highly recommend the Waffle House.

Of all the foods that could possibly survive without cheese, enchiladas certainly don't rank very high. Mmmm, cheese.

DancingFish said...

No cheese? That is completely wrong.

I'd prefer cheese too! But I can't have it/ But enchiladas without cheese are not worth eating.

Anyway, at least that thing is over with. I have to say that when I was teaching, I did have days like that.
