I typed a huge and interesting blog post yesterday, and then my internet connection pooped out on me as I tried to publish, and well, I lost it all. I just don't have the energey to do it all again, so this will be the abbreviated version.
Teaching is like, OOC. I can't wait till it's over. Really, it's not that I don't like teaching, because I do, and I'm fairly good at it. But this class is like...difficult. They're not very interested it seems, maybe it's the heat or the early hour, or the combination. Or maybe I'm just ready for vacation. Maine with my family in just two weeks! Then a few days in Philly with Joel...and then off for the real vacation to visit Brad in Las Vegas. We're going to see Zumanity. Sounds totally hot, which fits with the whole Las Vegas theme. We don't have much else planned, but I'm sure that B-Rad and I will come up with something fun to do. I just hope it isn't 114 degrees, I'm already melting. Oooh, I hope he has a scrabble board!
I had the house to myself this past weekend. Mary came over on Friday and we ate like a ton of Chinese food, the place we ordered from on Fairmount even had Crab Rangoon, which is like non-existent on the east coast and totally my favorite.
Then on Saturday I had my buddies John and Phil over and made a fabulous dinner. I tried 2 new recipes, Fish (I used red snapper) in Crazy Water and Israeli cous cous with baby arugala and tomatoes. Both were out of this world good, and we also had salad. I cheated on dessert by buying a pound cake (no one wants to turn the over on when it's 95 and humid) but I made up for it by whipping fresh cream and serving with raspberries and strawberries. I practically rolled Jon and Phil out the door. We played two games of Scrabble, both of which I won. Suprise suprise. I'm so arrogant when it comes to Scrabble.
So there's more to say, but my lecture for tomorrow has yet to be started, and well, school first kids.
Off to compose some notes on the immigration patterns of Middle Eastern Americans!
