I have spent most of the morning wondering what I am forgetting. It feels like there was *something* I was supposed to do, but I can't figure out what it might have been. I do know where my kids are, so I'm not overly worried that I have abandoned them someplace. So there's that.
I suspect this has to do with Hartwick being on Spring Break right now. I would normally be teaching now, so maybe my unease is simply a vestigal urge to be in a classroom. I doubt it, tho. That would be so unlike me.
While I try to sort it out, three things:
One -- to the person who found the blog by searching for "Vera Brittain Testament of Youth Cliff Notes" I'd like to simply say "read the damn book already."
Two -- I spent most of my last month of high school making an incredibly long gum wrapper chain. I'd actually work on it during most of my classes, largely because I no longer gave a crap about high school and knew I was going to graduate regardless of performance. I am still amazed that I did as well as I did that last term and that all of my teachers let me work on said gum wrapper chain. Anyway, I was thrilled to stumble upon this how-to guide from the world gum wrapper chain record holder. Good thing I don't chew gum anymore.
Third -- In the circles in which I run, the beer of choice is frequently one from Magic Hat. One of the great things about this brand -- other than the beer itself and their Monty Python meets Myst website -- are the bottlecaps, which a friend has been collecting. I've been scanning about to find ways to display them and think that some of these ideas might have promise. Can anyone think of anything else?
