I have a really great group of students this year, but they were starting to get on my nerves a little bit this morning. They DO NOT understand how to do the first paper – let me see if you can catch on: Read Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing and then compare/contrast the dating/courting habits in the play to the dating/courting habits of today. Isn’t that clear? I damn near started writing the paper for them in class today. URGHH!! I am not sure if they’re truly not understanding or if they are stressed that this is the first paper of the semester. I don’t know, but they stressed me a little. So, I have given them an extension because they ALL seem so clueless. Oh well, I guess/hope they’ll all be working extra hard this weekend – we’ll see…

On other news – I got a bracelet maker thingy from Mark for my bday. It’s hard to explain, but I need to sit my butt down and start playing with it. It’s gonna be fun. The colors of the strings and beads are great too. Some of my students gave me a card and a tiara for my bday. They want me to wear it tomorrow to classes. I’m sure I will – it won’t be the first time I’ve done something odd. And it won’t be the last.

Tomorrow night we have to do comedy. It’s an awful odd venue though. We are taking our improv troupe to a meeting and we are the entertainment. I don’t know – the average age will be early 60s, mostly men, dressed in suits, they will be liquored up though – that always helps. But, I don’t know how it’s gonna go. We are gonna do something quick and get the heck outta there. I am a little stressed because it’s unusual, but that’s part of improv I guess

I have a 7 am meeting tomorrow. Yikes! Better set the alarm and put it on extra loud so I don’t oversleep. That’s gonna be EARLY!!!! I can do it though. At least there will be coffee and breakfast. What more can I ask for?
