It’s snowing; fat, lazy lake effect snowflakes. There is nothing more beautiful than Central New York in the winter. Especially when the Beloved Husband has built a roaring fire in the fireplace.
I spent the day talking with 11th graders at Solvay High School. They had done a terrific job exploring the themes and plots of SPEAK, and my visit was the last part of that unit. It was a great set-up in the library – very, very nice librarian and English teachers, too. My voice, which was sounding creaky and monstrous last night, survived nicely. I can feel an upper respiratory infection trying to brew in my lungs (we asthmatics are disgustingly intimate with our breathing apparatus) so I’m back on all the requisite meds. I’ll get a good night’s sleep tonight and that should take care of it.
Not quite sure if my planned visit to Southern Cayuga High School is going to happen tomorrow. It depends on how much snow Lake Ontario decides to cough up.
Chris Crutcher has posted the panel from the Teen Titans comic that contains STAYING FAT FOR SARAH BYRNES and SPEAK in it. Here is the text from Chris’ page “Check out this cool panel from writer Geoff Johns and illustrators Mike McKone and Mario Alquiza, from TEEN TITANS #21, released February 16. Clearly, Green Arrow’s sidekick Speedy (blond) has great taste in books. Cyborg (non-blond) was cool to stack up her favorite books…”
Thank you, Kelly, for the link!
Also, with a nod to Jenna and Kelly at Solvay HS, here is the Muffanalia link again.
