It's not that I'm unhappy really

It's not that I'm unhappy.
It's that sometimes I'm not ready to be very reasonable.
When you drink your merlot out of a plastic Maggie Simpson cup you got free at KFC, people ought to cut you some slack. There are a million things I could blame my crumby disposition on. #1: mad cow disease (a.k.a. PMS); #2:my genes (and jeans), for the badonkadonk butt; #3: tectonic plates, for positioning us so close to the equator; the government, for (oh that was too easy)... but all of these are lame and truly unblogworthy. What did you say Maggie? Yes, I agree. I'm thirsty too and American Idol is on soon. Even though we know Jordin wins, watching Ryan and Simon bicker like high school girls is so soothing.

What they ask of you principals, and what they pay you, is absurd. Principals, at least the good ones, are far more underpaid here than teachers. I seriously doubt i'll be back after next year. you should do what is right for your whole clan. Cheer up.school is winding down. take a break for you, too. you deserve it.

But you're doing so well on Angelo's Sexy Blogger Poll!!!! And you have Merlot in that Maggie Simpson cup! And you have Billy Bob the coolest pet ever! And IF things really get ugly you can borrow my "Grease Soundtrack" cut loose on a few numbers and everything will be ok!

Thanks Bren. I forgot how nice it was to be consoled by you. You're always so optimistic. Girl, you know I love Grease!
Jeff: Target has great employee benefits and man, can't you just see me at the park blowing bubbles while Billy Bob and the kids toss a ball around? Yeah....seriously though, guys: there's a lot of thinking to be done here. I really am looking for a buyer for the house. It may be time to leave soon:(

Sexy blogger? It was nice of Angelo to include me, but I am NOT sexy. I just have really awesome friends who love me enough to vote for my chicken kelaguin butt!

i think we are in the check out line too. dough's got pneumonia or is it TB? we don't really know, the doctor's don't know and all he can think about is getting of this hot, damp, tropical, microbe infested island. i on the other hand am deeply torn about the prospect of leaving. i don't know if i'm ready. of course, if i get layed off this next year, i'm out for financial reasons, but i keep coming back to my classroom, the work we are putting into making science education better, my students etc. i know i can cultivate this again somewhere else, but it takes a lot of energy to do that.

Well, I've got you (and everybody in the world) beat on the bedonkadonk butt.

And whatever--you can't go until Script Frenzy is over. AND you can use all this moping, depression, angst to help make a great script. How lucky we are!

Is TB something you get vaccinated for? Did Doug have it? I'm starting to worry a little now. I presume I must have had it, but don't know 100 percent.

Saipan Writer said...

Jeff, That was a good question.

You can read what the CDC says here: http://www.cdc.gov/tb/pubs/tbfactsheets/bcg.htm

I hadn't realized there was a vaccine, so I learned something new. But after reading this, I'm not rushing out to get one, either. Don't know if it's available here, but we have a very good "chest clinic" that handles the TB patients here. You could probably ask there (at public health) if you want to follow up.

I personally like to drink my merlot out of an Epcot glass I've had for many many years... of course, here I have to drink wine out of a stupid bottle. Box wine fits so much better with Simpsons and Disney cups, don't you think?

Saipan Writer said...

Bonnie, don't have your e-mail.

Script Frenzy starts TOMORROW!! Are you ready to start?

Want to meet somewhere tomorrow for coffee and writing? (I like coffee care, but Java Joes, Bobby Cadillacs, Shirley's, and Cafe at the Park all work, too.--wireless available.)

Jane: I won't have any time to do much with promotion at school underway. I knew I would lose about a week during script frenzy.
