It is Wednesday and, once again, it feels like Thursday. Except today it is a true feeling and not that fakey-fake Thursday Feeling that always hurts so bad once I realize that I'm not as close to the weekend as I thought. Still gonna knock out a Wednesday Night Bullet Post, though. You can't go too far with the Thursday Feeling or it loses something. Here's this week's random tidbits:
*It was cold and rainy today.
*My classroom was virtually deserted.
*Too cold for kids to venture out, I guess.
*Lots of dead time in a day that should have been hoppin'!
*I wore sandals today because it is May and that is what one does with one's feet in May.
*I was so cold I could do little but complain about how cold my toes were all day.
*Extra time+cold feet=desire to knit socks.
*Yeah. That's right. I knit.
*If you need to get the smelling salts, I'll wait for a minute.
*I put in for a personal day this morning so I could take Friday off.
*And a birthday check waiting to be spent frivolously.
*Day was approved within an hour.
*Hence, today is my Thursday.
*Complete with the appropriate Thursday Feeling.
*Had lots of time to plan for my absence today.
*And catch up on paperwork.
*Until I got bored with all that nonsense and sat down to knit with Spunky Girl and the Cheerful Teaching Assistant.
*Figured out a solution to the coffee maker problem.
*It has a fail safe that keeps the machine from running if the cover isn't shut tightly.
*Cover won't latch.
*2.5 pound weight on the lid keeps latch in place.
*Coffee comes out in a blessed brown stream of caffeinated goodness.
*Most everything is rigged up around here these days.
*I'm the master of the "quick fix."
*Now the coffee maker fits in nicely with the classy decorating scheme.
*Should probably put a few strips of duct tape on it just for good measure...
*Thanks for all the suggestions re: the coffee maker
*I am not getting a french press, though.
*Do you realize you are suggesting that I put the kettle on and then GO TO WORK????
*The Absurdly Gi-normous Kitty will see it and think how cool it would be to write messages in lemon juice and then make the magic words appear over the burner.
*Except he'll get distracted and drop the paper to go watch birds and then the whole manse will go up in flames!
*All because someone thought I should get a fancy french press.
*And maybe because it's not only the AGK who has problems staying focused...
*Automatic Shut Off Feature is my friend.
*Otherwise I spend hours and hours not teaching children while I think about the flames licking away at my cupboards.
*OTOH, a french press might be nice on the weekends...
*Maybe with my mad money?
*A nice cup of hot coffee would be good tonight what with the chill in the air.
*I'll just have to hide the lemon juice from the AGK...
And there you have it! A Wednesday complete with coffee, cold feet, some knitting and an appropriate Thursday kind of feeling! I wonder if tomorrow will feel like Friday or if I'll have to wait for the actual day? I'll have to make a note to myself so I remember to check on the feelings.
Maybe I'll do it in magic lemon juice writing...
I would like a typo better
