Basketball update: Chris Webber is coming to the 76ers (gasp) and Villanova continues to kick butt and takes names – they stomped on Boston College last night. I didn’t see the game, of course, because I am a big lam-o and was snoring by 10 pm last night.
The South Dakota videoconference was interesting. The technology worked like a charm (used an Internet 2 connection, for those of you who know what that means), but I must admit I missed not being up close and personal with the students.
Here’s an entry for the Strange But True Fan Sightings: while I was getting my hair colored yesterday (thank you Halse ancestors for the genetic quirk which blessed me with white hair before I was 25) a couple of girls who like my books turned up with their moms: Jenny and Kristen from Cheltenham. I may have scarred them for life, because I am not a pretty sight with all those chemicals and foil and whatnot in my hair, but they did not run out shrieking. They hung around for an hour and I signed their books. As they left, I gave thanks to all the gods that they didn’t bring a camera.
I leave for Murray Avenue Middle School in an hour. I hope I can get all my presentations in before the snow hits and school is dismissed early.
I need coffee.
PROM comes out in less than a week.
I need coffee and Tums.
(later) – I almost forgot! best thing that happened yesterday: I saw a pair of red-winged blackbirds in the cattails.
