In which I'm not a total spaz!

At dinner last night, I mentioned to the Partial Asian that I planned on joining the teacher volleyball game today. Her response was 'oh god.' It was universally expected by my friends that I'd end the evening by hurting myself. I will admit that I got smacked in the face once with the ball but no lasting harm done! Whatever happened to Darwinian survival? I'm really glad that my particular gene pool wasn't around when things that involved hand eye coordination, like hunting, were necessary for survival. Despite my total inability to play volleyball, I had a blast. The teacher's love doing it and are supportive of everyone. Afterward, there was a special welcome dinner/party for my new co-teacher (who I love but in the interest of professionalism will not discuss on the blog).

Somehow I managed to escape unscathed from playing volleyball but managed to bruise my finger trying to put a shirt away in the dresser. Go figure. At least I didn't break the finger or the drawer.

Why isn't there a longer blog entry? Because today was ridiculously busy with lesson planning and now I have to stop procrastinating, get on TurboTax and deal with my taxes. ~Massive Groan of Doom~. I am currently fortifying myself with Oreos and lactose free milk. What an exciting life I lead!

you manage not to injure yourself playing volleyball but are done in by laundry...... you might need to start wearing a helmet

hey, maybe I'm late to the party because your blog seems to be getting lots of comments and stuff, but I just wanted to say I've been reading up on you, and I like what I see. I added you to my sidebar.

Have a great day!
