Working on improving my paper. It is coming along. Difficult. Yesterday afternoon I got a really good cookie. It was from Ellen's or something like that, down on Danforth and Santa Fe (northwest corner). Chocolate/oatmeal cookie. Very good. Day old discount.
We had Tiger Lily cookies on Wednesday. They were good too.
Todd, I am thinking that the perfect circle song you refer to is about death. It looks to be the rantings of a man that has just taken the life of another, or maybe a junkie.
The Friday Five from Ice and Dawn (somehow I expected it to be dirtyer),
If you could trade…

1. places with someone that you know, who would you be? My brother has a pretty good life.

2. jobs with someone what would your new career be? I think would be someone like John Perry Barlow (google him)

3. in your car what new car would you be driving? The BMW convertable, wicked cool.

4. in the location of your home where would you move to? If I could move the house and and land, Seattle or Cape Cod

5. in one body part for a bionic one, what would you pick? isn't that obivious?

Been there, done that. Okay, but it is still very cool. We are doing this today in class. The students like looking their houses.
Putting off the paper now. I did think of more to add to it now that we have a few more days to write. arrg.
Target has POM. Thought you might be interested in trying it. The flavor is pretty good. A bit tart, maybe inky. Great bottle. Too expensive.

GPS ing today. It is great fun. I really would love to work up a presentation for the OTA conference but alas. I am left all alone in my room at school while all the technology people I know are off learning and growing. My district does not really seem to support technology. This can be seen in the fact that I am not at OTA perhaps the best technology conference in the state. I also wonder if anyone from my district is even represented there. I did like it when OTA was in June. Missing school is difficult for teachers.
I went to 42 st Candy Co. yesterday. I had a dark chocolate bar with espresso beans inside. What a treat. Double rush.
Stay cool.

Yahoo! News - PC of the Future
For all you on the cutting edge of technology and Moore's Law. This is good stuff. I think the schools are going to be way behind in just a very short amount of time. I mean we are already way behind. I can't imagine what it will be like in three years. All of the machines we currently have in our buildings will be obsolete. All of the networking and infrastructure we put in will be worthless in five years? What you you all think?

Working in class. sort of...Where is our leader? gone, gone. what are we to do. Drifting. lost. Where oh where? Lost, adrift, I am like Tom Hanks in Castaway, Where did Wilson go?
Welcome back,
Your dreams were your ticket out.
Welcome back, To that same old place that you laughed about.
Well the names have all changed since you hung around,
But those dreams have remained and they're turned around.

Who'd have thought they'd lead ya (Who'd have thought they'd lead ya)
Here where we need ya (Here where we need ya)
Yeah we tease him a lot cause we've got him on the spot, welcome back,
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.

Well, Spring Break is over. Can you believe it? I met with the girls on Monday. After that I did no more work on my paper. Ouch. Busy today after school trying to get it knocked out.
Great break. It makes me wish sometimes that I could just play all the time.
