Better get up and start caroming around the classroom. Class is in session.
LOL close enough. A+++
I think your homework scared off the class....where IS everyone?
Just bouncing down the avenue, looking for fun and feeling groovy.
Oh, sorry. That's caroming down the avenue, today.
THERE you are. A+++
Never far away, cara mia.
Sudden ice syndrome? The other morning it iced up a little north of the city and someone slid and overturned. Her two small children were crushed. So sad.
Praise the Lord nobody was hurt!
My heart has been caroming from one emotion to another in this turbulent beginning of 2013.
Oh my...didn’t see your post. So sorry to hear that.
You see the 70 person brawl in swissvale? Getting rough aht.
OMGosh. That is awful. Just awful.
Yes. Those darn Swiss.
LOL I’ll take ya on in WwFs, unless you can find a virtual pool game on line.
We are all feeling it. A+++
good to know.
wait, you’re not my stalker are ya? LOL
Obama tries a three cushion carom with his latest Cabinet choices: Jacob Lew, Chuck Hagel and, (shudder) Hanoi John Kerry! With that Unholy Trinity in office, the Republic is doomed!
There’s a pleasant thought. A+++
I like Lew’s signature....it represents the country, like how we are circling the drain. A+++
Headed out for errands. First stop is Panera for breakfast....will be back when I get to their wifi.
Humor is the best medicine.
Cinnamon crunch bagel or a cinnamon chip scone please!
The whole administration seems hell bent on ruining the economy. Layoffs have been circling the local plant. Gloom and doom are everywhere. A+++
My fav is the egg sandwiches. Will have to take a cinnamon something home for tomorrow now.
I’ve never been in one, but have had their bagels. They’re huge, but they try to be too fancy and don’t have normal, regular flavors. Other than “plain.” Not an egg or onion to be found.
Today is the last day of classes so my students are caromming off the walls
Panera’s French Toast Bagels are to die for. I brought home 2 Cinnamon Crunch to try tomorrow morning. Lots of the ladies have small Bible studies there. Lots of biz meetings, bc they have free wifi. I love the place. Breakfast food that is NOT greasy. I like their sandwiches, soups and salads as well. My son didn’t like it there bc the sandwiches were more lady sized than he liked.
as long as he doesn’t tow the rest of us along with him into that ditch! A+++
1st reference to the other meaning. I didn’t include it, but you caught it anyway. A+++
students? you are a teacher? A+++ our classroom must have the students caroming right out the door. it’s awfully quiet in here.
let me just say that God is good. I was checking my work email this AM from the hair salon when i discovered that the 6th Cir has just this morning issued a decision in the case i was supposed to argue next Thursday. I won and the decision is published! but do you think they could have let me know a bit sooner that they didn't require my presence in Cincinnati next thursday? my office is now cancelling all the travel etc. I just had the first moot court yesterday too. in any event, it's a GREAT day!
BloomingIdiot is dictating to city hospitals how many pain killers they can have to prescribe to patients. OMGosh, is there anything this arrogant little twit doesn’t want control of. I can’t believe he wasn’t voted out of office on his @ss.
I am a shop teacher, so they are using sharp tools some of which spin at high rates of speed.
They used to have good chicken noodle soup about 2 years ago. Now it’s just water with celery in it, blech. You can read the paper through it.
Good for you!
Still, it’s fun to get out of the office every once in a while.
This is the first time I’ve been home in January since 2009.
Awesome! Congratulations! I went to the funeral yesterday..... surprisingly, I came out of it feeling joy. Bubbling with it, in fact. Jane was always joyful and bubbly....I figure I am getting her dose now as she is in heaven and doesn’t need it. Amazing group of grandchildren she has...all articulate and well spoken. One prayed with us for that very thing. That we emulate her grandmother and keep the joy and prayers going in our faith community. I still tear up, but am not feeling depressed.
For the rest of class: Saturday while on call, I was dispatched to my friend’s house for a woman not breathing. She had died in her sleep, I was the first one there from the squad. It hit me hard. I was supposed to stop and see her before Christmas and never made it. She was a terrific friend and neighbor. I will miss her.
yes, i am a bit disappointed. i had the moot court yesterday and it went very well, i was very prepared for it. i will be getting out of the office on the 18th-22d though, because xshub and i are going to Grand Cayman. He was intent on “getting out of Dodge” for the inauguration, and he hasn’t had a vacation in a very long time. Only 4 days but it should be nice.
I usually get the tomato. If I want chicken soup I know the local places that make homemade soups. There is no comparison.
