I bombed off to school all happy and cheerful - feeling quite well thanks to Frank. Donna was absent - sheesh - but I spent a bit of time talking to Alex about our students and the (was supposed to've been last week but now is delayed) fine-tooth-combing of our files by the B.I.A. The B.I.A. is having troubles as is every other government entity in the United States. They were here but their time ran out before they got to the art files, so Alex said they had stated they'd look at them in May or June. Uh... ummm... OK. I cannot express how bizarre the entire thing is now.
There was a noise and I said, "Who's that?" Skunk said, "It's your favorite customer!" I laughed, "You ARE my favorite customer." I had made a new pow wow poster last week that had space for information he was to've emailed me. He didn't, so it came down to driving it to school on a CD Thursday, or finishing it then and getting Alex to burn it onto a disc Wednesday. My computer has mysteriously lost all ability to burn disks due to someone mucking about in it - which is why I really hate having anyone else use it. Oh, well. Last year I told Rosanne I wanted that one lousy bit of space to myself, but this year, although I SAID that (in plain speech), it hasn't happened. I can't very well expect it to if I need Alex to do half the yearbook, so I haven't said anything.
Skunk gave me another big graphics job (job as in work, not as in pay). I always do the pow wow program, but this year he wants it to be more elaborate. I outlined my needs: "I can only do this if you write everything and all I have to do is cut and paste. The schedule will be black-and-white, with a page or two in color for head staff pictures and information." We shall see. I like doing things like that, actually.
My two little girls are working on yearbook pages. In fifth grade I taught (some of) them to save images to a rotten old floppy disk. The Green Conference is next Thursday and they are giving a presentation.
I left about a minute before a huge rainstorm, so that was good. On the whole it was a fun day.
