Teh Squeaky Wheel
A thread without kitties might as well be dead.
G’day from Scarier-Than-Usual yet Happy Larryville, GN!
Hugs to you and Mrs. Sven.
Criminy. (Just know there’s a lot of invective packed into that word.)
I didn’t see any post in the queue scheduled for publication this morning so I put this one up (that’s not a complaint). Apologies if I missed it and stepped on your “admin toes”.
Is it just me or does anyone else find Pumpkin Man faintly arousing?
Good morning, Fatwa--good job on teh admin side.
Maybe in a porn-stached Michelin Man sort of way.
Don’t be judgin me!
Thank you, Fatwa. I thought I had made posts through Friday but obviously not or there would have been a Midnight Oil post as well. I have been waking up since Tuesday with a pinched nerve and it has been rather distracting. I will put up some new ones today but always feel free to post when the muse strikes you (or I screw up). Oh, and I’m no admin, no blue gloves here!!!
Thanks again for stepping in.
No thanks were necessary, sir. Glad you don’t have blue gloves; since 2002, I’ve found them pretty scary. (Along with epaulets and, more recently, pot-metal badges.)
Very sorry to read about your pinched nerve; good thoughts to you and Elena.
Scariest Ferris Wheel evar (from 1926):
I thought at first it was a rotisserie in Hell but I guess it’s just a Democrat theme park. I’m disappointed.
(I’m glad I wasn’t guzzling coffee when I read that.)
Happy Halloween, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning Fatwa, Sven, and Mac!
Mac -- I hope both you and Elena are well on the road to recovery.
Fatwa -- I got the investigation report a week or so ago. Reading the executive summary, I must be some sort of danger to children who should be kept far away from all yout. Reading the individual interview reports paints a somewhat different picture (too bad there isn’t an actual transcript), but the leading questions and prompting for answers is appalling. Just skimming through it put me in a deep funk for a couple of days.
There is little more frustrating than for an honorable man to face a dishonorable attack. This just sickens me, Paddy. This kind of BS makes me want to become like Fatwa!

It’s fortuitous that I’m having a fabulous 70% off Halloween special…on top of the standard 30% Wheelizen discount.
“You will learn by the numbers; I will teach you.” 😉
FWIW, it is my hope that proportionately unfortunate things beset every malefactor who was part of this screw-job.
Every. Single. One. Of. Them.
(Some may believe that’s “bad karma”; I prefer to think of it as justice.)
A bunch of my former students have been writing letters of support to the district, asking that they be put in my personnel file. One student shared with me today the response he received: Thank you for reaching out to me. I appreciate hearing about your positive experience with Mr. O’Furnijure and about your successes following XXXX High. Unfortunately it is not our practice to place such letters in files. Only specific items go into a personnel file. Please feel free to contact me should you have any further questions. I wish you the best in your pursuits in life.
It’s heartwarming that you’re getting some support from former students.
The district’s response -- predictably -- is shit.
(I’m exceedingly annoyed by the number of organizations who use the irksome phrase “reaching out”; I’d like to “reach out” and grab them by their throats while I kick their asses. But hey…that’s just me.)
Wouldn’t want to dilute our smear job with any truth now would we?
Nor even the faintest whiff of contradiction to the officially approved narrative character assassination.
Sheesh, Paddy. But a good thing that the students with integrity are reaching out and doing what they can.
Speedy recovery, Mac
