... I don't wanna go to school today....
really -- I'm not ready for this school year to start, but start it will with a bunch of really dull meetings.
A short note to my administration (who may or may not be reading...??),
Please, we really don't need to "meet" every new employee, faculty member or staff. Making them stand up and wave to the rest of the school isn't going make us remember them later.
Also, please learn how to tell time. You have 20 minutes for your "update", that means after 20 minutes, YOU STOP TALKING.
Finally, you've got to understand that your faculty has about the attention span of a bunch of ADD-riddled Kindergarten students who have had way too much caffeine. If you don't keep it lively, we'll doodle and daydream. I'm a pretty calm version of the typical faculty member and if I cared enough to keep folders from the last four of these events, I could show you the extravagant doodles and mental meanderings...
So, my bloggy friends, wish me luck in this -- and for those of you reading this during "duty days" -- (which should be spelled 'dooty' (as in poopy) days, just know that I'm sitting over there by the wall as tortured as you are -- at least I will be if I'm not getting a good wireless signal or have become bored with editing my feminist epistemology paper.
