No Emmy nomination for the dh this year. He says he's okay, but I'm bummed. His friend is nominated.

Ghost Hunters is struggling in contests as well. To be fair, the same entry went to both contests. I've since revised for Gateway.

I spent my evening writing the play for the PTA program and grading papers. Started the play at 4:30, stopped at 6 to go out to dinner, was back at it by 7:30, finished entering grades at 11:45.

And I still have 66 compositions to grade.

I've never been this far behind, never brought this much work home. I don't know what's different this year. Can 4 more students be that much more work? Is it because other teachers in my unit are always in my room?

Speaking of my room, we got snakes for our classrooms this week. Thursday one of the teachers walked in my room with her snake twined around her arms. Today the new teacher took my snake out. I told the kids I'd take him out if they worked quietly, so they did, but I got really nervous and put him back after a couple of minutes. I took him out again while they were at music and I was more relaxed. But now I'm worried about leaving him over the weekend. Did I leave enough water? Will he be too hot? Too cold? This is why I don't have classroom pets.

Oh, and the dad that yelled at his kid for not waiting out front? The kid has waited out front all week till 3:30 - I know because I wait with him. So today I kept him with me, in the AC, so I could get some grades done before I went home. Guess who was waiting, pissed off, when we went out at 3:20? I told him we were expecting the mom, later, but he wouldn't even talk to me. Jerk.

Tomorrow (today?) I will grade one set of compostions and work on my query and synopsis for BD.
