here comes the rain again

Yet another dream about the slinky dress, the party and #2. I ran about 10, 000 errands this morning, and kept scanning for red lights so that I would have a few seconds to jot down the ideas popping into my head. (Of course I keep paper and pen within reach at all times, even if having a writing drought. I can be such a goof.)

In other words, this blog is serving its purpose and i'm actually writing again. This isn't the slow, tortured "come on, now, lemming, you can crank out a few hundred words before supper on point x" but the "holy blessed toledo, point x and person z are connected by event d! cool!" feeling.

Naturally this means that I had to spend the afternoon walking students through book reviews and proper use of there and their. Tonight, on the other hand, looks to be free as a bell. I do solemnly swear that I will not look at the tv listings to see what might be on American Experience tonight, lest I be distracted.

Words Written: nine 3'5 cards lined up by the computer
Lessons Graded: their = ownership, there = location

Aw hecks, it is just a show on Patty Hearst this evening.

Sounds like a great evening to enjoy the nice weather or a good baseball game on TV.
