All this talk of school design has me thinking about:
Image
My first elementary school was Pre-k through 8 in a single building. I want to say it was four stories? The elementary school where I live now is single-story, but it's only K-2.

i couldn't find a good representation of what schools in SoCal look like but basically, there are pathways that are usually covered with some kind of overhang to protect from rain. And our school had no cafeteria, if it rained, you ate outside under one of the overhangs but most days you ate on the grass or at some of the tables they had. And yeah most exercise was done outside.

I'm always excited to discover people have birthdays near mine, for some reason. Mars, you're 10 years and 364 days younger than me!

The Roe v Wade 40th anniversary Fresh Air episodes are pretty great. Good job, Terry Gross.

My high school was made of donuts! Not the delicious kind.

The main building (middle) was nice because if you couldn't find your classroom/locker/whatever you could just keeping walking round and round until you did.

I went to an elementary school that was made up of three round buildings. Each one had six classrooms around the perimeter that were open to a big empty area in the middle that could be used for various activities. It was kind of cool because the three 4th grade classrooms could shuffle into fast, medium and slow for math and reading and you just had to go around the partition to your reading classroom or whatever.

Does want to be all of these people:

In fact, if I could be all of them all at once and be some kind of super-fly-dancin-soul-machine-super-hero, that'd be extra great.

Your birthday is 3 days after mine! Which means (counts on fingers...) Mars' is two days after? It's not a leap year, is it? Woo, birthday week triplets!

Mister Shadowfax won't let me hold him long enough to cut his nails, and he's also kind of mean when I try! But it turns out he's occasionally cuddly JUST long enough to cut one or two at a time. Also, it turns out when his claws are stuck in my jeans is an excellent time to sneak in and snip the offending claw. Little by little, I'm snipping the guys claws through trickery and subterfuge.

A woman who worked with me for a short while showed up at work today with brownies for everyone and a vegan chocolate peanut butter bar from Whole Foods for me. I don't remember ever telling her I was vegan. I only worked with her for 2 weeks while my mom was in the hospital and she was substituting. Now I'm wondering if other people talk about me being a vegan when I'm not there!

The peanut butter chocolate bar is really good, though.

Yep! Man, I loved those books.

My heat and stove are back in working order. They say they have fixed the problem (wrong fuses before?) and I'm hoping that it will also magically fix the 'my electric bill was way too high' problem, too. Only time will tell.

Also, I had consecutive friend dates with two ladies that I hadn't seen in ages and it was mighty nice catching up. Mighty nice.

There is no Miss Zarves. There is no nineteenth story.

My mother asked me for a list of potential names for a shelter cat, and she is just not appreciating my brilliant choices. Come on, who wouldn't want a cat named "Potato"?

My landlord has the incredibly irritating habit of leaving every light in the house on and the bedroom doors open after showings. My door is always closed because I'm allergic to cats and can't have him near my bed. My roommate's door is closed if she's not home because he sometimes likes to puke and or shiitake on her bed.

SO not cool, landlord! He also showed up half an hour early and walked into my room with me in it which was pretty awkward.
