Teh Squeaky Wheel
TGIF from HL, GN!
Hope that none of the TX contingent has been affected by the earthquake or storms.
I am well and truly stunned by the media’s spin on teh Garland MoToon contest. As previously stated, I’m not a big fan of Geller…but I am profoundly appalled by what I perceive as the media’s dhimmitude.
Not to mention the silence of our domestic Mohammedans.
That is all.
Happy Friday, Gerbil Nation!
Hai, Fatwa and Sven!
So the Left blames the rape victim, eh? Why am I not surprised? So the Right doesn’t rub that bit of hypocrisy in their faces? Why am I not surprised?
I’ve got an interview at another school this afternoon. I still haven’t heard from the other district I interviewed with -- the one that said they’d get back to everyone, one way or the other, in a week. That was two weeks ago.
Oh, and at the end of April I got a notice from the commission on credentialing that the informal review of my case was completed and that the full committee would take up the matter at their meeting at the end of June. If I wanted to present any materials, they have to arrive by May 28. If I want to speak, I have to let them know by June 4th. They said they sent me a letter back in February, giving me a chance to respond, but they only sent me a copy of something they sent to the district, asking for more info. I contacted my Calif. Teachers Assoc. rep, asking for a legal referral and she’s been dragging her feet. I finally signed the paperwork yesterday, called the law firm (the same one who did a crappy job for me the first time around), but their fax line was down, so they don’t have the paperwork yet. They’ll call me before the end of the day, or first thing this morning. No call yet.
I think the interview went well. There were four teachers from the science department and an assistant principal, all asking questions. The whole thing took about 30 minutes. One thing I’ve noticed is that educators and administrators (former educators) don’t know how to interview. They’ve got their list of questions and that’s it.
Glad that today’s interview went well; good thoughts headed atcha. Also, HBD 2/7 to teh Older.
…but their fax line was down, so they don’t have the paperwork yet.
Have any of these oh-so-smart professionals ever heard of scanners and PDFs? Criminy…I know dumbass roofers who use them on a daily basis. 😉
OK, so around ten years ago at our neighborhood 4th of July party in the park I did this:
Ol’ Jerry has British Lord eyebrows and so I need to trim them like every week. I got a new trimmer and just before I went to the park I started to trim. I forgot to add the guard and completely removed my right eyebrow. I went anyway. But I made a vow to myself that I would always check to make sure that the guard was in the right position.
Sunday, I was going to a neighborhood party and needed to get a haircut. Since I have always cut my own hair since 1970 I quickly got out the hair trimmers and started to work. Guess what? I forgot to clip on the guard and shaved off (at scalp level) all the hair on a strip from my neck to the top of my head. What to do? I just shaved off all the rest and pretended I meant to be bald.
This is the shortest hair I’ve had since I was in boot camp in 1968.
What a goof.
I have what is called Asian hair. When it is short it stands straight up and when it is long it is very floppy. Soooo, right now it stands straight up.
Paddy, I hate your school systems and your union with the heat of a thousand suns — not that that will do any good.
Jerry -- thanks for the support. I appreciate it.
I read your story to Mrs. Paddy and Teh Older (Slash) and when I got to the point where you’d shaved a strip off your head and wrote “What to do?”, Teh Older said, “There’s only one thing to do -- shave it all off and pretend that’s what you meant to do!”
