Thus far our interactions with the neighborhood here have been one gal asking to use our phone, and one guy begging us to buy his kitchen table for 10 bucks so he could get some cigarettes.

Reminds me of Todd St. Hopefully I won't have to start keeping juice on hand for crying children who wind up on my doorstep like I did there (it was weird, the juice usually calmed them down considerably- and they always wanted some when asked).

Sigh. I do like our yard. I've planted a few things. I hope they don't get stolen.

Figuring out how to protect against deer is a big deal... its going to cost a fortune to put up a nice fence. We'll see how that winds up. I may ask for design input here at some point.

I'm dressing down for class today by wearing jeans and a tee shirt. Its my "Communist Party" Threadless Tee Shirt and the topic today is Economic and Political Life so its appropriate, I think.

Haven't posted in a while. Been busy with teaching crap.

I feel like I'm being nibbled to death by ducks. An email here, an email there and all the sudden the whole day is gone.

I'm not getting paid a whole lot for this gig either. Less than the TAs, in fact. So I really need to figure out how to be more efficient about it or it really is going to be minimum wage. And I don't do minimum wage anymore. Not that desperate.

At least the first topic out of the gate is evolution. That's my favorite thing to teach.

I hope it cools down soon. That would help my mood enormously. Fall cannot arrive fast enough.

Okay, this is boring. But I felt like breaking radio silence, just for the heck of it.
