From the last batch of homework:
From Assignment 9 -“You write exquisitely! And analyze/observe equally well.”
From four blog entries I turned in – “You write extremely well – even ‘correctly.’ And the writing is most engaging – and the ideas perceptive.”
Well, the professor did a great job at inflating my ego. This is not what I need. Because all I’m doing now is rereading my assignments and the comments and memorizing every single word and red mark. So, that helps. The assignments aren’t pristine. A few comma splices, a few omissions. The red ink is validating. Focus on the red ink, May. Keep the ego at bay. Do you hear what I say? Are you okay? No, you cannot play. Hey. Now, go your own way.
Today is the first day of spring. It was hella windy. It would have been a comfortable 48 degrees if it weren’t for the gale whipping everything about. Including me. And I can’t go around making Wizard of Oz references all the time. I’ve got a job to go to every day. I have a blog to maintain.
I found a compromise. About milk. I can drink cow milk just fine. I mean I’m slightly lactose intolerant, but I stand behind the fact that I weaned from mammal milk before I was two years old. I like soy milk just fine. And I think almond milk is good, but it gets quite pricy. So I was in the store the other day looking at the alternative milk options. And then I saw it: almond soy milk. And it didn’t cost as much as almond milk. I picked up a quart on my way to work. I let it chill in the refrigerator. I had some raisin bran. Almond soy milk is delicious. Try it: you might like it, too.
For those of you visiting in the next couple of weeks, it looks like we’ll see highs in the 50s. Dress however you deal with 50-degree weather. Also, plan on having a legitimate blast. We’re gonna have so much fun. You’re gonna wonder if it’s legal to be having the amount of fun we’ll be having. We’ll be obeying the law though. You don’t have to worry about that.
