School was good yesterday - had my little girls working hard to do business cards (made Photoshop image first) and also work a little on the comic strip which they have named "Sidewalk Freakout" for some unknown reason. Then went over to fifth grade and taught them how to do a scavenger hunt in the virtual world. Tomorrow is the real one - for prizes and hilarity. They were great yesterday, and JustinS picked things up very quickly indeed. Another new student, with the result that there are 2 Justins and 2 Cheyennes. I told Mothra he might wind up with a class of all Justins and Cheyennes.
Came home, then quit roller derby by explaining that my fun-to-boredom ratio was way off. Then immediately started working on the expedition book, and was shocked to see it was 1am when I finished - since I had to get up for jin shin this morning.
Today had jin shin, came home and spent a few hours working on Doc B's combat card project.
KGF emailed and said "tell me the price" of a painting she wants to buy - which she'd asked before but I hadn't replied (got stymied by price thingy). Replied, then she said, "Check's in the mail."
Saturday is the second anniversary of Howard's untimely, shocking, awful death. By my computer I have Howard's photo (taken by me at an xmas party where I took Polaroids of everyone and used them to decorate the fake tree along with paper bathing suits and airplanes). I'm going to give the Howard pix to KGF though.
I got Selador's book in the mail yesterday! Yay!
I'm currently reading my xmas present from Tiff, called The Line of Beauty (something like that). It's well-written although I'm not too terribly interested in gay life in Thatcher's London with special focus on cocaine use etiquette.
