Stuffs and Updates

As you can see my blog design is a little different.  I went ahead and paid for a custom CSS upgrade so  I can have the most flexibility with the design.  I’m not limited to the existing theme layouts.

I stayed home from work today so I don’t have to talk at all.  I am going to rest and not use my voice for anything, which means I won’t be doing a video log… well, maybe I will do one if I am feeling better tonight.  My coughing won’t go away unless I let my irritated throat heal, and the more I talk or use my voice, the longer that’s going to take.

I dunno what else to say at the moment.

Oh, yeah.  If you look on the side bar you’ll find a link to my old myspace blog archive.  The earliest is from Nov 10, 2005.  In 5 days that post will be exactly 4 years old.  I was thinking… it would be kind of cool to get those blogs transferred to WordPress so that they are in with the rest of my blog.  I think what I will do is copy each post’s content as a new post on the date that it was originally posted, but 4 years later.  In other words, in 5 days (november 10), I will copy the 2005 myspace blog and post it here.  One concern I have about that is that I would need a for-sure way to make it obvious that it’s an old post.  I’ll figure it out.  If you have any ideas, please share.

Grab Bag Blog

I don’t really have anything specific to write about, but here I am all the same.  Actually, there are a few things to write about, and they are in face very specific… so specific, they are individually not really much to blog about.  For instance, I’ve had two insects in this room today.  One was a big wasp, and the other, a ladybug.  I killed the wasp.

What else?  Oh yeah, lots of new students this week, which means lots of database updates and stuff like that… nothing really intense but it’s a bit annoying.  Enrolling kids into school so late in the academic year just seems dorky to me.  Guess it’s better late than never.

I didn’t get lunch today.  I was tempted to order more pizza, but I looked up the nutritional chart for Pizza Hut, and the pizza that I ordered the other day was about 280 calories per slice.  I had 7 slices in one sitting.  That’s almost 2,000 calories, which really should be my maximum calorie intake for a day, based on my current stats.  Yes, I said “stats”.

Since doing things so close to the end of the year seems to be quite the trend, I decided to try something as well.  I’m making a seating chart for each of my classes.  I think it will help a LOT and it will also help me learn names a little better.  Currenly, kids have just been sitting wherever, and I usually don’t place them anywhere specific and it’s a different spot each week.  Well, not any more!  I’m keepin’ tabs on ’em now.

Well, time to go rule the classroom with an iron fist.
