TODAY I AM A FASCISTWell, at least that's what's one of my students called me. I think he got the from one of those straight-edge skater bands he listens to. Who am I to stifle his creative use of vocabulary?
And, in other fun, here's what can happen when you randumbly click on your list of recently updated typepad blogs.
My favorite quote from the entry I linked to: "To the contrary, it is precisely the obligation of each nation as much as of each individual to submit themselves spiritually and morally to Him. Putting it another way, God does not call (and does not want) nations to surrender their sovereignty to the United Nations".
Take that, Kofi Anan.

AND SO IT GOES...Student: "Do you REALLY want to teach us today? Because we really don't want to learn. Maybe we could all just go home early? Go ahead, Mr ---, you're dismissed."

MY DAY, SO FARStudent: That show at Pearl Street Friday was cool. etc etc
Teacher: Oh, I was at Pearl Street, but I was at the show upstairs.
Student: You should've come to the MaddMuzik show, there were other old people there.
Right now I'm drinking a coffee with Cremora in it. THAT'S how my day's going.

Another Interview from Near the Arctic CircleWanna hear what Toti thinks? I hope so.
The other night I saw an add for that Eddie Murphy movie The Haunted Mansion. I wonder what's next? It's a Small World After All? Wouldn't THAT be ninty minutes of fun...
(waxing poetic)But, indeed, it is a small world. (end of wax) Reading my second Reykjavik interview should make that clear.
There, now I've linked to it twice in the first three paragraphs...

IDOL HOURSThanks to Kristen for this wonderful link. Now I have an outlet for all my church sign humor. Of course, with Blogger, I couldn't quite bring you my first church sign, but it was something like: "HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER: LINK TO THEIR BLOGS"
Next up: "THOU SHALT NOT COVET THY NEIGHBOR'S TEMPLATES"

GETTING GAMEYWell, the game continues. Despite the fact that whenever anyone asks me about it that person generally says something like: "Are you still doing THAT?" or "How long do you plan to keep that up?"
But anyway, the moves so far are:
1. Nf3 g5 2. Nxg5 f6 3. e3 fxg5 4.d4 (no move) 5. c4 e5 6. dxe5
Feel free to make the next move for Black. To do so, leave your move in the comment section below.
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO TEEN ANGST?Two real conversations I had with students today:
Me: What did you do this weekend?
Student: Oh, I broke up with my boyfriend.
Me: Sorry to hear that.
Student: No biggie.
Me: What's going on?
Student: Well, R--- was kissing my girlfriend in class.
Me: Oh really?
Student: Yes, I'm quite disappointed.

1. Nf3 g5 2. Nxg5 f6 3. e3 fxg5 4. d4 no move 5. c4
