Marathon Man

Life has been interesting for me as of late. My writing has been ridiculously behind schedule. My editing for NerdSpan.com has been a lot of fun and at least gives me the opportunity to be a little creative. Then there is my running. I successfully ran a half-marathon in November and then got all crazy […]

Figuring It Out

I have spent a lot of time over the last few months trying to figure out which direction I want to head in my future. The truth is I have been a little depressed. I have had a hard time shaking it. I have not been blogging or writing very much. I know enough about […]

Zip It!

Why yes, I am writing this blog from my room’s balcony while watching airplanes make water landings. After many days of cruising in the Pacific we docked in Ketchikan this morning. The stop I was the most looking forward to and dreading just a tiny bit. I woke up this morning around 5 am and […]

The Sandman is A Bastard!

I am not going to lie here. I have terrible sleeping habits. I don’t know if I have some dreadful case of lifetime insomnia or it’s just another link in my chain of weirdness. Having said that the Sandman has been a real bastard to me lately (I should know as I am a lifetime […]

Are You Happy?

We saw a play last weekend called Maple and Vine. The driving force of the play was the question are you happy? One couple in the play goes through absurd machinations in an attempt to bring happiness into their lives. Sheri and I left really thinking about the question. It seems when most people in […]

My Brain is a Jumble

My brain tends to be all over the place. A big jumble of thoughts and ideas. I have to work really hard to keep my concentration and focus on the tasks which I have set out for myself. Right now I have only two big ones which need to get done. I have to finish […]

Principal Not

In my school district we have this wacky thing called teacher in charge. This is code for putting some idiot in charge of the school when the principal is out. At my school I am that idiot. This is like putting the Joker in charge of Arkham Asylum. I really don’t know how I became […]

The Scale Is My Friend

Today I did the dreaded thing. I got on a scale. I have been putting it off for a lot of different reasons but I admit one of them was fear. I figured now was as good a time as any. I have now exercised for at least an hour for 41 straight days. I […]

Weight Fairy

I am always telling my students that there is no special work fairy which will float down from the sky and get their work done. Make them smart. Help them grow up and get a good job. In order for all these things to happen they were going to have to work hard at it. […]

You Are Not So Strange

Sheri and I went down to San Francisco this weekend to see Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman entertain us for a few hours on a stage. It was a gloriously strange combination of music and spoken word. The art of music commingling on a stage with the art of fiction. You can also throw in […]
