Oh god.

So my mother just had a brainfart and couldn't think of the word for "goose." She instead just spent 20 minutes telling me all about how she loves "honkers."

Apparently, she really loves honkers. She thinks it's great that she can go out to the park at night and see all different kinds of honkers. Summer is the best time of year to see honkers, since that's when they all come to visit our area. Tonight she's going to set her computer wallpaper to a photo she took of some honkers.

I'm laughing so hard and she still can't figure out why!

Ah, Drums Along the Mohawk!

It's just not the Fourth of July until you watch Henry Fonda run run run run run.

You know that sure-thing job interview I had before? I didn't get it. The school district didn't even bring my name up at their board meeting.

Good thing it's Lent because my grocery list is going to have to slim down again.

When your interviewer introduces himself and immediately gives you a tour of the building, it's safe to say that you have the job.

Looks like I can add another district to my list of schools that I'm subbing for. :)

The good news: Turns out that my school calls me in the event of delays and cancellations, so I don't have to worry about fumbling to tune into their elusive radio station.

The bad news: The secretary forgets that I live farther away than most other subs, so she doesn't call me until I'm already up, dressed, and on the road.

Happy 2012, everyone! Shaka and I rang in the new year by watching the midnight fireworks down in Central Park. We've both accomplished quite a lot this year, so it'll be exciting to see what happens next.

So I took my Master's comp exam this morning.

I sat in a computer lab for five and a half hours, writing over fifteen pages on the historiography of the English Civil War and roughly twelve on the methods in which American slaves were able to exhibit control over their lives.

This was the last big hurdle before I can receive my Master's Degree. I still have two rather large papers due next week, but my grade on those don't particularly matter. As long as I get a passing grade on this test, I'll have my MA!

Then a school district will have to hire me. Right?

Take that, NaNoWriMo!
First year competing, first year winning.
Now let's see if I can make something usable out of all this rambling.
