when i think of summer

(and finally being done with my first year of teaching!), i think of sufjan stevens's the predatory wasp of the palisades.

sick again

with a sunburn (i should have known that participating in the extremely rednecky activity of floating down a confederate flag-lined creek alongside inner tubes holding coolers of beer might result not only in a red neck, but in other red parts), a fever, and some weird sinus thing. probably not staying home tomorrow, but i felt like whining anyway. i've only really gotten sunburned one other time in my life and this one is definitely worse than that one.

on the upside, we have 8 more instructional days left--really 7 1/3, if you consider that Friday all the 11th-graders are gone.

cue the mountain goats' "this year."
