We had a sweet little girl this morning at 9 AM. She’s a peanut, weighing in at just under six pounds. I am in loooooooooove with little Allison Lorraine.
The US Department of Education sent me $10 in the mail.
I don’t remember who pointed it out or which post it was a comment on, but good news! The Toast is being approached by the Library of Congress for archival as confirmed by Nicole Cliffe.
It’s currently 85 degrees outside, breezy, and I’m caught up on grading. Tonight is a good night for beer and steak. What’s everyone else up to tonight?
Dogs are not supposed to be on the couch.
Hey guys. I had a super productive day today. Woke up at five, gave a test, set up a lab for tomorrow, took care of some adminstrative tasks, and generally was a badass. I just finished spreading 15 or so bags of topsoil. I’m gonna try and get this mulch taken care of before I lose the light. I’ll be back in thirty…
It rained this morning around 1:40. I jolted awake and felt that heart sinking stomach feeling but was able to wake up enough to stop a full blown panic attack. Harvey flashbacks, I guess. I wasn’t able to fall back asleep until it stopped and hour later.
Update: Still okay. 9 inches yesterday for a total of 19. The pace of the rain is much slower and we aren’t having street flooding where I live. Creeks however are leaving not only their floodbanks but are starting to flood neighborhoods etc near us. My friend sent me this pic of CyCreek (about 1 mile from my parents).
Bumped. I added the answers from last week. New Pop Quiz! tomorrow. Also, is there another time of day that would be more preferable for these to post vs Thursdays at 4 PM? With school in session, I can’t really respond at 4, because I’m still in class. I’m thinking Saturdays midmorning.
I’m off to dinner with a friend but will be checking in later.
Did we survive another day without nuclear war? I’m so tired right now, and I haven’t had time to check the news. My parents are picking me up in about ten minutes to go to dinner, so I’ll be MIA until later this evening. Fingers crossed I don’t fall asleep on my steak.
1. This lazy character drives a 1973 Gran Torino (green with rust coloration) that’s missing the tape deck. Who is he?
This week, I give the answer, and you give the question!
I am currently sitting in traffic. It’s pouring rain. I’m cold. I’m wet. I’m cranky. And it will take at least an hour yet to get home. Waaaaaaahh!
1. What is the world’s coldest capital city?
Halfway through my last week of summer before PD begins.
1. Which famous literary sidekick has a name that is inspired by a surgical dressing?
Hump day is over and done!
Greetings everyone! How is robot week going? We had a very loud thunderstorm this afternoon, so now the yard is a mud pit. I’m using this as an excuse to avoid going outside and doing yard work. Has anyone invented a robot that pulls weeds without disrupting my flowers?
My cross stitching organization has reached critical mass, in that none of my stuff is organized and is scattered across two coffee tables and a dining room table. My husband is not amused. I bought plastic bobbins and ordered a storage bin for my thread, I have a little magnetic box for my needles and that’s about…
