questions answered

I had access to a bracelet making machine the other day so I made one designed to help me navigate this perilous world. Now, whenever I am in a tricky situation of some sort (which happens several times a day), all I have to do is consult my "What would Hunter S. Thompson do?" bracelet, and the path is clear, kinda.

In other news, I am half way through my abbreviated summer vacation, and it has been great. It's short this year, but I ended school already looking forward to fall, so I'm not feeling any dread. It helps that I'm teaching great classes this year: AP Lit, Etymology, and for the first time in two years, Comp. I love that class.

Today, I think Hunter S. Thompson would water the flower boxes, build a bike-repair stand in his garage, drive his kids to the dentist, and try reading some more of David Mitchell's surprisingly funny Cloud Atlas, a book he would have read about in the three million recent reviews of Mitchell's new novel.

The fact that you're teaching Comp is making me regret taking AP Comp. Cheers.

I'm glad you are teaching Comp. again! I'm lucky I acquired such a love for writing/reading-- it is helping me dominate at school.

I noticed you have The Remains of the Day on your read list. I saw the movie and my co-worker told me that the author uses detailed subtlety in his writing, similar to the movie. I definitely need to read a book by him.
