Reeling Them In...

I'm an ESPN/baseball junkie-but I only use my super-girl-power-sports knowledge for good. Today before class started some of the boys were discussing Kinsler's 6 for 6, hit for the cycle game last night. One of them commented that he bet that had never happened before. I suggested that he not bet too much on that. It's happened three other times, and the last time was in 1894. When the jocks realize that I know the REALLY important stuff like that, they are much more cooperative in our studies of literature...

I don't like change. Never have. As a kid, I ate fried chicken wings, rice, gravey, and green beans every single day after school during my freshman year of high school. It probably would have lasted longer, but my mother finally refused to cook that meal more than once a week.

Now, in the age of exponential technological changes, change is a way of life. Our district switched to Microsoft Outlook for our email, and I am not a happy camper. My desktop and laptop did not accept the changes, so the tech child came in to handle the issues. His attitude at first was "This won't take a second," but then quickly moved to murmmers of "Huh, that should have worked," "that's odd," and "Hmmm, that's never happened before." He finally got everything running, and now I can no longer access my email from home unless I go online.
