Before I fall off the internet again, a list:
1. That homeschool co-op thing is going pretty well. Over at CatholicMom.com, I wrote about why I think we’re doing as well as we are, and what you should be doing now so that you can be as cool as us, this time next year.
2. I read a good book. That made me think about hats. Hint: PG Wodehouse + Free Book = Happy Jennifer. Also, as always, I ended up with bacon.
3. Without giving the game away, since I’m not actually a mantilla-blogger, the hat thing comes back to this. (Yes, that link is not to my success, it’s to a good post by Dan Burke. You should read it.)
4. I have a post in the queue for tomorrow. It has seven parts. See how organized I am?
5. I dropped the boy off in Bethune today for Boy’s Weekend. On the way home, I had a BLT in Camden. I am thinking that if someone wanted me to undertake a special project in which I drive US 1 testing all the BLT’s . . . that would be okay with me. I would totally get Marian on that one. Fiat, all that.
6. Last night Christina Knauss (say: Kuh-Now-ss) from the Catholic Miscellany and I talked on the phone about bullying, special needs students, and classroom management. I did not sound completely lost and confused, because we talked for a couple minutes 45 minutes *before* the interview, and she gave me a head’s up on the topic. And then I got to think about it while I cleaned my house and she made dinner. And then we talked. All intereviews should be conducted this way.
7. It was very helpful preparation for my author panel coming up on Saturday. I don’t really know what people are going to ask me, but maybe something about those topics.
8. You’re wondering what I suggest. See page 91, highlighted in boldface:
There should be no tolerance of mockery, teasing, bullying, or rudeness from any quarter.
I’m looking at you, grown-ups.
9. Why yes, I will be saying that on Saturday. Grown-ups, prepare to squirm.
Updated: 10: Writing posts without typos is not one of my successes this week.
