Just in case any of my students are finding themselves without anything better to do than to read what their prolific teacher is up to, here is my weekend smack:
Not one of you happened to remark that the cartoon figure of an earlier posting had no arms! That slipped right past you, didn't it? I was hoping one of you would make a comment, but nooooooo! This was a test of your observational skills, and you all get a big effing F! The concept for you lamebrains was this: you can't write if you don't take your hands out of your potato chip bags and actually move them over to the computer keys and type something. This is what a writer does....she moves his/her lightening fast fingers over the computer keyboard with grace, skill, passion and delight. Try it sometime, it really won't hurt you. Now repeat after me: IF IT IS TO BE, IT IS UP TO ME!
And when you finish programming yourself with this saying, I double-dare you to say this one three times in a row very fast: Blog-Blond Bond. Yes, I am a relative of the famous James Bond, and I've got my eye on you!
I can't say class dismissed because this is a weekend, and you should be doing your homework instead of reading this. If you're wondering, the photo is a scrumptious gift to your fabulous teacher from a savvy student. Some bring food, and some donate money. Your teacher appreciates all of it!
