Taxes I'm avoiding. I usually get a refund so once they're done I'm glad, but motivating myself to the horrendously boring task of doing them is the hardest part. (and I'm afraid I won't get a refund this year, so I don't wanna find out!)

Bye VP Nice catching up (on Lost)

We'd all glomp B and his poor back.

Actually...

 
If B hadn't injured his back, I'd never gone to any shows this year.....

It looks like, if my return is what I hope, I'll be going to Winnipeg!

Oh shoot. I realized the last one that Comet posted for that purpose I saw at work so I couldn't upload it to my pb. Maybe she'll be nice and lead me to it or post it again. (I don't even remember where it was posted )

Pardon my French but it was FUCKING ridiculous. The first half of the "interview" was a joke. There were 5 tables, each with a person with a question. We had exactly 2 minutes to be asked the question, which they weren't allowed to clarify, and answer it. Then a fucking timer went off and we'd move to the next table.

Then we were shown data about test scores and we had 15 minutes to write about how we'd use that info to plan our lessons and explain our rationale for doing what we'd do. And after 15 minutes another fucking timer went off, we printed out what we'd typed and THAT WAS IT!

THAT is how they're going to determine whether or not I'm a good teacher???!?!?!?!?!??!?!

Pardon my rant but I was PISSED!

*goes back to catching up*

But thanks for asking, and for the record, I think my answers were really good. But whatever, if that's the system that doesn't want me, then I don't want to be a part of it. Know what I mean?

Okay, rant really over this time.

The first part sounds like speed dating.

That's pretty messed up.

What a ridiculious way to interview!

I'll keep my fingers crossed, and if they have any brains at all, you will be there next year!

I should have waited to buy the cupcakes until I was on the way to my friends' house, because now I'm going to have to buy an entirely new pack of them - it wouldn't look so good to show up with some of them eaten. At least they're cheap!
That's hilarous!!!

Yikes indeed! Our electric bill gets like that in the summer when it's 108F outside and we've got the AC going nonstop.

I get billed every other month for electric. I always have two bills well over $100 in the winter months, and then the rest of the year it's rarely over $30, which is pretty awesome.

Then again, I don't have air conditioning. One of these years, I'll probably cave and get a small a/c unit that I can set up in my bedroom for the few times a year it gets really hot, and then I'm sure my bills will go up for those months.

zu, I'm so sorry for the ridiculousness of that interview. That's baffling that they think they can deduce who is a good teacher from doing something as stupid as that. Thinking good thoughts for you anyway.


Electricity is included in my rent, which is a good thing. It's always been included wherever I've lived, so I'm scared to think what it will be once I own my own place. I don't think I'm unreasonable with my usage, since my landlords have never said anything about it, but I'm not going to worry until I have to.

I made a joke like that. The other 4 teachers in my "group" laughed a little. THe Human Resources people didn't.
