You've been in public education how long?
16 years--4 at a college, 12 at various high schools and middle schools.

The end of the school year is when the kids are bouncing off the walls and the staff is climbing the walls. After two months of summer break, everyone is rested and the obnoxious kids have (usually) matured a bit. Yes, there's always a new set of immature ones--but they're easier to tolerate earlier in the year, before they get the idea that they run the school (which, in fact, they do, since the AP routinely ignores behavior referrals, and so the kids get away with pretty much everything).

Found explicit gay porn in the airport bookstore today. Hyper-masculine pencil drawings, so clearly it goes in the art shelf.

I cannot wait for this school year to be over.


ETA: Someone should write a fic about Loki and the Joker fighting over which one is cooler.

Got about half of my grades back: two As, two B+s. The odd thing is the As were in blow-off classes I took to fill the spot and that I almost failed in the middle of the semester due to my own lethargy, and the B+s were in classes that I consistently worked my ass off for that are necessary for my majors. scratch WTF, life? Very gift-of-the-magi of you.

(watching old Batman Animated shows)

(gets to "Beware the Grey Ghost" episode)

"Holy shit that's Adam West voicing that character"

"haha Adam West is voicing a washed-up actor who used to play a crimefighter on TV in the sixties"

"haha he can't get work because he's been pigeon-holed because of his one big role"

"and now he's...breaking all his souvenirs from the show..."

"and...slumping on the floor...sobbing..."

"..."

"...good christ this show was DARK"

^ Hahaha yess Batman:TAS was that nice level of dark without being over-the-top tryhard dark and love it.

OK so I went to Victoria's Secret and got a fitting done by a trained professional. I have been wearing a 34B since forever but the fitting lady told me I was actually a 32D.

You better believe that when I told my mom I was a D cup she looked me in the tits and laughed at me.

The fact that the voice actor is Adam West adds a whole extra layer of darkness.

I've been finding half-eaten, unripe apples on the lawn. Today, I caught the culprit.

My dog was stretching up to the branches hanging low with fruit and grabbing apples, then settling down for a snack.

I found out that I may possibly be distantly related to the Boston Strangler.

My great-grandmother's maiden name was De Salvo. She was five years old when she came over, but there were relatives already living here then. He would have been something like a fourth or fifth cousin, but I doubt my mom or any of her relatives ever met him.

Still, it's weird, and kind of creepy.

I just had to spend hours explaining to someone of age 22 why naming a street Whitewater is not racist and in fact it is named after all the rafting and stuff that happens on the river right next to it. I think they still don't believe me.

I am not sure if this qualifies as weird, but whatever. Somebody started a facebook page for my high school's 2004 class reunion and the very first post ended with some dumb thing about "find are friends". I decided to go ahead and be an asshole and point out that they meant "our" not "are". Facebook does not allow you to edit your statuses, so you have to delete and repost them if you fuck up, btw. I check again today and they did, indeed, both to delete and repost the message with the correct homonym... I do not have the heart to tell them they accidentally dropped the s on friends when they did it (at least it looks like a typo now instead of just abject stupidity).

In other news, every time I write the word "their" it looks wrong to me now and I have no idea why.

"Are" and "our" are not homonyms.  They are pronounced differently by anyone who isn't a drooling retard.

Also, illiterate people on Facebook is more average than weird.

Hahaha, is this what you have been reduced to? Aggressive pedantry?

The word both of you are looking for is homophone.

Isn't it what I've been doing for nearly 8 years now? Colbert

Also, isn't that pretty much the life goal of this website? Razz

Thank you for correcting us. Here is a web page that explains the manner in the most confusing way I have ever seen.

Yesterday, I found out, in the space of five minutes, that one of my uncles has died and that I had a phone interview with one of the (many) places I've applied at. The funeral is Friday. Did well enough on the phone interview that now I'm going to have an in-person interview.

Mood whiplash liek whoa, all day today.

I learned an important lesson today:

When you hide an important piece of equipment (in this case, a Mac Book) so it won't get stolen, don't outsmart yourself. Hide it in a place you'll remember.

That sucks.

It's like that one time four months ago where I got a phone call saying I was hired at this one place, then that night while driving to pick up my girlfriend WITH FLOWERS BECAUSE I CAN AFFORD THEM NOW a cop pulled me over and towed me because of a clerical error with my drivers license.

So a couple months ago Safeco auto-charged my bank account $330, presumably to pay for my insurance for the next year.  I was a little confused since I was pretty sure that Chicago Title (my escrow peeps) were paying my insurance for me, and also I did not remember giving Safeco permission to withdraw shit from my bank account w/o telling me :\

However, I chose to just ignore it because I had other shit to deal with and a quick google search was not enough to pull up the number for the Chicago Title office I had been dealing with. Fuck it, I am white I can probably afford to just trust the system.

Cut to yesterday when I got a check in the mail from Safeco for $330 dollars, telling me I sent them more money than was owed, so the were refunding me the extra. Wtf Safeco, sort yourself out.

At least I can be sure I am not being overcharged, but now I have to go to the damn bank to deposit the check >.<
