So Very Tired 

Today was the first actual day of school, when I go from 0-6000 in five minutes, and stay at full throttle all period, every period. Needless to say, I'm completely wiped out.

I have made a blog for my classroom activities, so students can check work when absent, review due dates, etc. It's at gotclass.blogspot.com. If you wanna know what my school day was like (oh boy), check it out.

Also see Diane's final post from the RNC. (Filed from back home in Madison.)
I then asked the head of the Alabama delegation whether she had heard of the group 9/11 Families for Peaceful Tomorrows. No, she said, her face clearly showing displeasure. Well, they have a monument out in front of this church, I said, to honor the victims of 9/11 and all civilian victims of war. Do you have any response to that? She said, somewhat bitterly, that some people must have forgotten their history lessons, that there are times when the United States has to go to war to protect its freedoms. After all, we are the leaders of the free world. And people who question war are wimps, and we can't have wimps leading the United States at this point in our history.
Today when I went to the supermarket, they were playing that song "I miss you / like the deserts miss the rain" by Everything But the Girl. Wow -- I was almost singing along with the store's sound system.

The Daily Show has been doing some pretty good coverage of the RNC -- their best bit so far was the "George W. Bush's Words" video (you need to scroll down a bit to find it). Also check out the Ed Helms RNC blog.

That's it. I need a nap.


Check out Emotion Eric. He can do everything from happy to sad to exhausted to patriotic. I think my favorite is My foot is on fire! (But taking candy from a baby is good too.)
