(no subject)

Came home today, had a quick snack, and fell asleep. Until about 10pm, when dad called.

It's been a loooooong week. And Thursday in particular was epically long. I think the only reason I got through today with my sanity in tact was because two of my three pull-out groups was cancelled, and in the one group I did have, the boy I will only refer to as Satan's Child was absent. Yippee.

Of course, once I was awake I was hungry, so I made an abbreviated breakfast for dinner (eggs, waffles, juice and decaf coffee) and watched some TV.

Tomorrow the plan is to do some laundry, hit Target, color my hair (I did the roots not too long ago, but I'm bored with medium brown and decided to celebrate the pink slip I received today by going back to some shade or other of red. If I can find my camera, maybe I'll take a pic!), tidy up the kitchen, and... I'm thinking about going to see Alice in Wonderland. I was never a huge fan of the Disney 'toon, and I remember as a kid having the crap scared out of me by the Jabberwocky in the 80's version of Alice -- although, watching it now, it's pretty hysterical. (I have this big head, and these tiny arms!) However, something about it in the commercials seems appealing. Anyone who's seen it have thoughts?

P.S. Gavin DeGraw is on Red Eye and will apparently be performing soon on... Fox Business Network. He's officially OK ;)

Urm, pink slip????

Oh, and I saw Alice and if you like Tim Burton's stuff, you'll like this. It's appropriately weird for him. LOL!
Urm, pink slip????

Yep, it's that time of year again in California. About 21,000 issued so far statewide and the deadline to issue is Monday. (I think there were 60,000 last year.) In my districts, classroom teachers who have been there less than 5 years are being pink slipped... it's a 'just in case' thing since they're not sure how many positions they're eliminating next year, and like I said, someone getting laid off has to have been notified of it in writing by March 15.

Now, my position is funded directly from the state and has to be re-funded every year, so even if I had been working there for 20 years I would be getting pink-slipped. It's 99% for sure that the money will be there, but when you're talking about a bureaucracy, you have to go through the motions ;)
Wait...pink slip? What pink slip?

Haven't seen Alice yet but heard it's not really worth paying extra for the 3d (if you have to pay extra there) as it doesn't really make much difference. *shrugs*
Well, thanks to you and youtube I just spent the last hour looking at Alice videos! :-)
Like the icon! I never gave it much thought during the movie (too many special effects in my face), but she's a lovely girl.
