Today's Humor

Today while at work, another coworker looked at our clearly and openly gay student worker and said:

"S, you need a girl."

Which of course was followed by some chuckling after she walked away. Apparently her gaydar needs a little tuning.

Out at Work?-Part II

I am officially out to the student worker.

Why did I lay my cards on the table?

I'm with this kid a lot. He works almost as much in a given week as our full time staff...30 hours or sometimes more. When you're around a person so much, and in such close proximity, you talk a lot. And this guy asks lots of questions...about my family, friends, social activities, blogs...you name it.

Yes, I could just refuse to discuss my personal life. But this is not just a student off the street...he's as much a coworker and friend as anything. And he'd likely have put the pieces together by now anyway. So, for better or worse, I told him.

And you know what? It felt good.

Spring Break

Or lack thereof. Welcome to the real world, even when you work at a school.

But...best wishes to K, Troy, and the whole CA blogger crew for a wonderful time together!

Where's B?

Some of you may be asking that question.

I've been a bit MIA from the blog lately. I've been busy with work, and distracted by other things. But, I assure you, dear readers, that I haven't disappeared and everything is fine. Those of you I talk to regularly know this.

Hopefully, I will have time to catch up with reading, writing and commenting in the next few days. I definitely have a few things I would like to talk about here.

For now, I'm preparing to leave for a quick, last minute jaunt to Grandma's with Mom...down today, back tomorrow...lots of time in the car for us.

Have a good weekend out there!

Dems Battle it Out

Well, it looks like half the 2008 presidential race is figured out. McCain clinched the Republican nod...no major surprise there.

On the Democratic side, it appears Hillary has a slight bump in momentum, but Obama is still ahead in delegates and neither is yet close to the number needed to secure their nomination.

My opinion? A McCain-Clinton match up would be far less interesting than McCain-Obama. Clinton and McCain are two "old pols" it seems...Obama may provide more contrast. It's time for a new generation in the "upper level" of American Politics.

It'll be interesting to see the rest of this race play out.
