Transfer Deadline Day and the end of the Warm...
As I write this, Arsenal will have bought “only” 3 players this season for a total outlay of “only” 35 million pounds. Podolski, Giroud, and Carzola in while RVP, Song, Bendtner and Park are out. Uh… That sounds pretty good. I’m not a fanatic “Arsene Knows Best” guy, but shit! We are the Arsenal. This is our team. Let’s go kick the shit out...
Day 4 - I DON'T CARE - 8.23.12
Me: Next time someone bumps into you, let’s try and talk to them respectfully Student: Shut Up! I don’t care! Me: Well, that’s a good example of the opposite of respectful. Could you try it respectfully? Student: I said, I Don’t Care! Me: I’m going to have to ask you to leave and go to a buddy room please Student: SHUT UP! I DON’T CARE! I DON’T CARE!...
Day 3 - Wall Hit - 8.22.12
When you’ve spent five weeks couch surfing, teaching for three days feels like running a very smelly marathon. I’m going to go home and collapse.
Day 2 - The Carousel of Teenage Damnation -... →
You know when you have a dream, and it’s really intense or disturbing and you wake up for a few seconds and think “wow, that was something!” only to fall back asleep and have the same dream again. Except maybe the second time that nun on the bicycle turns into an alligator with a chainsaw. Or maybe this time instead of heroically taking the controls of the pilotless airliner and...

Day 1 - Wing and A Prayer - 8.20.12
In retrospect, showing up at 6 was overkill, as my 7:45am class didn’t even make it though security and scheduling until 8:45, but it did allow me to sort some things out. Well, honestly, It allowed me to run around drinking coffee and start about 6 ideas that I then immediately abandoned. The class was small, about 19 kids by the end of the day, so that made it much more manageable than...
Arsenal v Sunderland 8.18.12
I tried to kill myself last night. Okay, that is hyperbolically over the top, but is the only explanation I can think of for why my brain cells are no longer speaking to one another. Martinis should only be drunk when prepared by a libation specialist and sequestered safely behind a bar. That way when you think “Oh, I’ll just nip back there and make myself a double”, you will...

A Step Back
Finished my first organizing meeting in 6 years that I wasn’t the Lead of. It was an odd feeling not being the one responsible for Everyone. I still think I talked more than anyone in the room, and had to keep reminding myself that I wasn’t “in charge”. Overall, I think I made the right choice to step down, time for me to focus on other things for a while, like becoming an...
