~Blogger has begun to hide several of the blogs I thought I was following. Has it become like Facebook and bloggers are now able to drop me? "That Caution! When she finally gets around to commenting, the comments makes no sense. I'm kicking her off my followers list!!"
~I don't know how I really feel about the practice of bloggers who are so gracious in replying to every comment. It's sweet, but I wouldn't feel bereft if they didn't always respond. How do you feel about that? Okay, I see you nodding. Does that mean I should begin to comment on your comments? I could. Maybe.
~I also need to find some new blogs to read. Well, they don't really have to be new...just to me. Got any suggestions?
~After serious thought, I have opted to grade essays the old fashioned way this semester. I will hold each one, use colorful ink to encourage writing growth, and I will add a sizable comment with each letter grade. Then I forget to wash my hands prior to eating and will give new life any germs living on those essays and my hands.
~My middle son went to a Lego robotics camp this week and had a grand time. What a bright group of kids! On the first day I realized there would be significant competition there when I overheard the kids saying things like:
"Of course Alaska's greatest natural resource is..."
"Echo location works really well with these robots"
"I really enjoyed that exhibit at the Henry Ford Museum."
Now this same son moves on to a hunter's safety course. Honestly? The attraction of hunting is completely lost on me. (Admit it! That's not where you thought my comment was headed. Did you?)
~I will admit that hunting maybe doesn't belong in a technical post.
~And lastly: justice! The woman ahead of me in line at the customer service desk yesterday told the clerk her problem, and then took a phone call. "Oh hi! Nice to hear from you. Nothing much. Just at the store...." Meanwhile, the annoyed clerk immediately stopped working on the woman's issue and said, "Next in line!!" I was next in line! When I left, the woman was still chatting, but had begun to look a little confused as to why her problem hadn't been resolved.
Now here are the lunch tables I've chosen to sit at today. Want me to scooch over so you can join us?
