Okay, just a little late ...
The Wednesday Hodgepodge is courtesy of From This Side of The Pond.
A trip to Raleigh to learn about teaching using open-source software, the beginning of school for my kids, a ton of grading as my semester ends, and turning around and getting ready to start the next semester in October. Oh, and my birthday ... I'm hoping there will be some fun in there, but that's harder for me to arrange. :)
Musician. Or, teacher.
An end to name-calling. I see too much political discourse on social media (yes, I'm looking at you, Facebook) which degenerates into describing one's opponents with labels rather than discussing the issues. (Seriously ... does calling your opponents "idiots" make them any more likely to listen to you?)
Eager beaver. I'm a little too eager to engage with debate online lately ... it's starting to sour the way I react to things.
Sometimes we'll get snacks, especially when the kids are with us, but not so much lately. It's not that I mind the prices (I've seen reports that the high prices really do help to keep the theaters in business) ... mostly, it's that I'm overweight. I used to get a soda, but there's something about drinking a soda in a movie theater that leads to me having to leave the theater in the middle of the best part in order to empty my bladder ...
I think the latest movie I saw was "Spy". Absolutely fantastic movie --- two thumbs way up.
Somewhere in the middle. There is value to rest; I'm really not good at it, and it shows at times. On the other hand, we were all created to have a purpose, and sitting around usually doesn't solve anything.
Finishing the last round of midterm grading. Now, onto the current round ...
If your apology has the word "if" in it, then it's not an apology.
