Weekend Update

Well I don't really feel like its the end of the weekend, tomorrow I have a day long inservice and technically have to work. But, in comparison to dealing with the daunting task of caring for the flailing personalities and futures of my diverse little students a day spent with my colleagues isn't nearly considered hard work.

Musical Artist of the week: Me! Here is a new song I just wrote called "I Love You" its a sort of tropical jam freestyle and its really short but I like it and I hope you all will give it a listen!

Old Person Phrase of the Week: Dontcha Know? No, I mean the phrase of the week is "dontcha know" in honor of its recent frequent use by Governor Palin in the Vice Prez debate.

Weather Update: Snow, snow, more snow, then sun, then snow and now its snowing. Its 35 degrees with a windchill of 26 and the dewpoint is 28 so that means snow. We still have 6 miles of visibility today although I can barely see my house from the school window.

Physical Fitness Update: I'm going to try and do some Stress Relief Yoga tonight, and I'm going to go organize the weight room tonight in preparation for starting lifting next week after school. I'm gonna try to lift twice a week (backs/bi's and Chest/tri's like my dad taught me). I'll let you know how it goes. I've been waiting for the snow so I can start Rocky Balboa style training running too.

Personal Art Update: I have made 3 songs in the last couple of weeks. I have been really into sort of space tropical jam type stuff. We'll see if it continues and be sure to check out the song in this post "I Love You." Also, Don't forget I still have my IAC Page of all my music.

Lack of Political Update: While reading the sequel to the "Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams "The Restaurant At the End of the Universe" I came across this quote in Chapter 28:

"The major problem--one of the major problems, for there are several--one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job. To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem.
An so this is the situation we find: a succession of Galactic Presidents who so much enjoy the fun and palaver of being in power that they very rarely notice that they're not.
An somewhere in the shadows behind them--who?
Who can possibly rule if no one who wants to do it can be allowed to?"

I thought that this explains exactly what I think about presidents. Exactly.

Possibilities Board Update: I have started doing internet research on several things. Some recent searches on google have included information on San Francisco, Portland, and Olympia, Jackson Hole and Hilo. I have been setting up accounts through various services as well. Also, Europe looks more like a go and if anyone has any suggestions about places I "JUST HAVE TO SEE" I would gladly accept any stories, places, or insider information.

Well its been a long Update, so I apologize for that, and I hope you all find something to sink your teeth into this week.

I vote for Olympia for obvious reasons. You have been far away from home for too long!
