I realized today that all my friends who are teachers are on Winter Break. And I hate each and every one of them. I don't care what anyone says - teachers have it easy. (Bring on the arguments people!)
Last Friday was my holiday party at work so today was the debriefing. And I have to say, everyone was really mature about describing the after party. Even though, for those of us who were there, we knew that at times, it was anything BUT mature. (And I learned it's easier to prove sobriety if you can walk a line with your hands in your pockets!)
I wonder how many people in the Midwest are sitting at home, watching the snow fall outside, praying that there is so much that they don't have to go to work tomorrow. I wish I could be one of those people, but sadly, I own a Jeep Liberty so I have no excuse.
Speaking of driving, on my snowy drive home today I saw a guy try to play Spin the Bottle with his car. Silly little Toyota.
For those of you who don't follow me on Twitter (shame on you!) let me bring you up to speed on the battle raging in my apartment. On Saturday, I noticed some evidence that I might have a mouse. So I did what any card carrying member of PETA* would do and I bought me some traps. Within an hour I had snapped one of those little suckers. When I woke up this morning, there was another one. Both are now residing on my frozen patio, turning into what I called "micicles" or, what my coworker called "stalagmice". (I work with some damn clever people!)
Where is my red pen? How can I make corrections to papers if I don't have my red pen? Because I don't think my normal choice of purple ink really inspires the fear that it should.
