caught in a vortex

Since I awoke at 7:30 this morning, my brain has been making very optimistic plans about the day.

I'm going to fold & put away the laundry, then I'll get dressed and start grading work.

Okay, first I'll have breakfast, check my e-mail, then do the laundry, get dressed and grade.

Wait - breakfast, e-mail, I'll do laundry later, take a shower and go to the cafe to grade work.

Let's see. If I sleep awhile longer, have breakfast with the kids, check e-mail then get ready and head to the cafe...

It is now after 1:00 pm and I have eaten breakfast, gotten ready, checked e-mail five times, read multiple blogs, and got sucked into watching half a dozen videos from Improv Everywhere. No laundry, no cafe, no grading.

Here, you try it:

It is an irresistible time-waster. I kind of hope my son the actor gets hooked up with a group like this someday. There just isn't enough wackiness in the world sometimes...

Okay, seriously, I am going to work on grades.

I wonder if that guy had to keep changing his clothes after spilling coffee on himself repeatedly for an hour?!

I was very busy today but I'm not here to brag.

Happy Easter!

(do people still carry boom boxes?? This would have seemed strange to me!!)

I love videos like this...and you hear that? it's the sound of debbie being sucked into YouTube, yet again!! thanks for the push steph.!! :-D
Have you seen the GrandCentralStation one where a group "froze" for 5 minutes? That one is great too!!

Jenn: Isn't that what I'm here for? :)

Tootsie: I wondered that too! And congratulations, non-bragger...Happy Easter to you & yours.

Debbie: I hear it...It sounds so familiar. The Grand Central bit was the same Improv guys - go to their site; they have dozens of videos! Sorry.

How could anyone be expected to relate effectively in a teaching environment, without the necessary background research having been to devotedly done? I applaud your tireless investment of your entirety in the pursuit.

(my very best shot at validating your day! hope it stands up in 'small grading-work claims court.')

John-Michael: I appreciate the attempt to validate my time-wasting. I actually did finish with the composition books (after 4 hours in a chair at Panera). And now there will be lots of not caring amongst my students, but I feel better and that's what counts.
