One of my seniors brought us cupcakes for Mole Day. Apparently chemists always celebrate it on 10/23 (at 6:02, officially). It makes me happy that there are at least a few real geeks around, although she hadn't heard of pi day (March 14), so I volunteered that she should come back with some pie in a few months.

Here's a fascinating link I stumbled across. It's from the Onion, in 2001, as W took office for his first term. Then, it was silly satire. Now, it's straddling that uncomfortable line between hilarious and too-true-to-be-funny.

So, over a year ago, I admitted my vanity and desire to have blond hair, although it was darkening and there was nothing I was willing to do about it.

Holy Moley, I just found out and the school is abuzz. Tomorrow at 2:30 Joe Biden will be here at Jewell at my school. I have sent Steve out to get tickets. I hope we get to go.
Yesterday we had an e-mail that some of the homecoming events were being moved around - I thought that was strange, but had no idea what it meant. Now we all know.

It's been a year since we started the afternoon gratitude box, and it occurs to me that its time to resurrect it. I know everyone is busy. I know many of us have nothing really eventful in our lives. Despite that, or perhaps because of it, I particularly like keeping in touch via little bits on news or non-news.
My joy of the day: a beaver apparently built a dam across the river in town over the weekend. Amazing how quickly it went up. But my real joy is that there is a football built into it. I don't know why, but it really makes me giggle.
