I was surprised to come second in the CLO contest, as I'd forgotten I'd written anything. Jenn points out that I've come second the last four years. I need to step up.
I came across some old Regents homemaking exams. quite amazing. a sample:
6. When Gordon's aunt called him back for his raincoat, he asked "Why? It is not raining!" His aunt's best reply would have been
a) "Because I told you to"
b) "You know your mother would want you to have it with you."
c) "It looks very much as if it is going to rain."
d) "Because you look so well in your raincoat."
e) "Put it on dear, just to please me."
there is a surprising lot of technical knowledge tested. but it's funny how the entire subject seems pretty useless now. I guess that's what google does to knowledge.
I'm enjoying the BBC series Sherlock. It's set in the present, texts instead of telegrams, the plots are complicated and clever, well written and acted, I'm really enjoying the show. Sadly, there seem to be only 3 episodes (but each an unusually 88 minutes long).
I'm looking forward to bringing 30 students to Amateur Team East. It is the most social weekend of my life.
After that, the state championship, the long month of March, high school and junior high, and then summer. I need to start thinking about what I want to do/ where I want to go this summer. any suggestions?
