I could scream at the top of my lungs. And none of you would hear it.

Why does coming here always feel like a torment??

Today I am happy.

It was sunny out. Cold, but sunny. Every assessment went smoothly. Even the last one, which is the reason for the happiness. Because if JB and I had walked in there unhappy and it had gone badly, we would have been miserable for hours and hours afterward. But we walked in happy, and walked out happy, and got out of work early (?!) And I just woke up from a nap, and I'm talking to The Boyfriend, and wearing my new jewelry, and have already bought my ticket to see Twilight tonight. And it's the weekend, and I'm so relieved. I can sleep in tomorrow. Thank God.

My witty fourth-grader.

(Sorry if I threw you off with the last post. The current state of existence may not be ideal, it's fine with me. I like it when work keeps me busy, I feel productive. And with the workload being what it is, it was inevitable for it to intrude on the rest of my life. It's fine, it's just for this month.)

I showed up for tutoring a bit late, but Mary was waiting for me. The girl who joined us last time, Katie, joined us again. This girl is silly. And I don't mean silly like the way I am with friends or co-workers when we've had too much caffeine. I mean, silly as far as her mentality. I'm not sure this girl really takes anything too seriously. She always seemed more concerned with what was going on two table away then with what was going on with the worksheet in front of her. Mary doesn't seem fond of her at all, judging by this little interchange.

"Wait, I'm getting my stuff!" says Katie.

"Take your time," I respond.

"Yes, please," mutters Mary. Woah, Mary, where is this coming from??

From there, Mary continued to subtly but doggedly antagonize Katie, which I secretly found amusing between admonishments to play nice. Mary is even sarcastic!! I like this kid more and more.

Rich send me a beautiful jewelry set, matching necklace, ring, and earrings, opal set in silver. I love it!!

Math class was canceled tonight. So I will be social. And I will wear my new jewelry.

To live would be an awfully big adventure.

It has come to my attention that there are a handful of people who check my blog on a fairly regular basis. Some might even go as far as to label them "fans". Huh. So I figured, I haven't updated in a minute, and these "fans" may be wondering what's up.


There's your update. Work and school are those most productive things in my life at this time. I do not cook. I do not clean. I live on my couch. My social activities are limited.

Monday: Eleven-hour work day. Two-and-a-half hours of school.
Tuesday: Ten-and-a-half-hour work day. Two hours of school.
Wednesday: Eleven-hour work day. Two-and-a-half hours of school.

I get to work early to get ready for the day's inspections. I stay late to get ready for the next day's inspection. I go to school. I sit on my couch and think about nothing in particular, do nothing in particular. I get a few hours of sleep. And I start all over the next day.

I do not live. I merely exist.

Veterans galore.

My dad, my uncles, my aunt, my boyfriend...I'm surrounded!!

And damn proud of every one of them.

Do you have a veteran??

Confessions, Part VII.

I am madly in love with a man who lives thousands of miles away, a man I won't see for many, many months, a man I miss like the sun misses the flower in the depths of winter.

Confessions, Part VII, section b: I totally jacked that last bit from the Heath Ledger film, First Knight. Ha ha...but it totally applies!!

I just saw a commercial for a medical-type center. The commercial had a song. The song went like this...

"Midwest Hem-ah-roid Center / Don't suffer in silence."

I had an overwhelming urge to drive a pencil deep into my brain.

Davi's Magic Wall.

From my election night party. I made my very own Magic Wall.

Fourth graders are pretty goddamn smart.

I was tutoring the usual kid, a bad ass little girl that I shall call Mary. Today, a little girl I shall call Katie joined us, because her tutor totally bailed. I had brought some candy with, because Mary's parents believe Halloween is The Devil. The two girls bickered over the a piece of really hot gum, and Katie won it. So I promised Mary one, and she immediately began an epic argument about this piece of gum being similar to that one, or that piece of gum not being in the same family of gum. I told her the gum I would be giving her was chewing gum, as opposed to bubble gum, because it doesn't blow bubbles. And she said...

"Then make it make bubbles, add some dishwasher liquid."

Jesus H Christ, why didn't I ever think of that?!

Yes...we did.

I called it, with 353 electoral votes. I can't find the Missouri, Indiana, and North Carolina results for some reason, but the only state I called wrong was North Dakota.
