"You're all a bunch of fuckin' idiots. Let people tell you what to do. Let people push you around. How long do ya think it's gonna last? How long are ya gonna let it go on? Maybe you love getting your face stuck in the shit. You're all a bunch of slaves...Letting everybody push you around. What are you gonna do about it? What are you gonna do about it?..... I wanna see some action out there. I wanna see you people come up here and have some fun. No limits. No laws. I'm not talking about guns and riots, I'm talking about love. Take your clothes off and love each other....Do you wanna see my cock?"

I just spent an hour typing up a post, yes it was really that long, but the fucking server timed out and its gone, so I'm fucking pissed. I was going on about my 31st birthday tomorrow and it was very philosophical, but fuck fuck fuck!!! The only thing I can glean from it is this that my mom sent me, which is totally unlike her, as its a lil risque...for her

School started, thus the lack of updates. I am so fucking behind; I didn't have my room ready until the day the kids started coming in, my lesson plans are incomplete, and I have yet to type up any syllabi, but other than that it going pretty well just winging it. Scary thoughts for parents out there.

As a new school year approaches, and as I get ready to return to work, I think of the time I am going to miss on-line. That's sad, but this is basically, but not the only way, that I kept myself entertained throughout the summer.
This year especially. For the first time in four years, there are a noticeable lack of freshmen in my classes. After 3 years of teaching freshmen health, I was burnt out. The lack of maturity, the smelly, sweaty glands, the total lack of clue of what high school is all about. This last year did it for me. Usually by the end of the year, the freshman have grown up a little bit. Not last year. I really think it had to do with the crackdown on bullying. I am all for putting a stop to the bullies around school, they have absolutely nothing to offer a campus, but I think we went too far by stopping many senior ritual initiation rights for the incoming dork squad. I believe by not allowing the seniors to pick on freshman as in the history of high schools, our freshmen did not learn their place in our society. At the end of the year, they still believed they were 8th graders. So this year, I will not step in, unless there is a grave danger, when a senior is giving a freshman a little shit, after all, life is full of shit, better to learn that lesson now. I am in no way advocating violence, just a wee bit of fun at someone elses expense. Now isn't that what life is all about? If you can't make fun of those less fortunate than you, this would be a boring life. See ya in class.

I thought drivers in this town were bad. Yesterday I drove a round trip of about 500 miles around this fair Land of Enchantment and by the time I got home, I was ready to kill more than my share of morons. My parents were camping up at lake near the Colorado border, so I went up for the day, well it was about 3 hours driving one way, so i left at about 7 am and got home about 8:30 pm and was so emotionally and physically drained I preceded to go to bed right after I got home. But I digress, the drivers in my particular town are pretty bad, usually someone is cutting across in front of you so they can get into traffic, even if you're barrelling down on them with the force of charging rhino. But the experience I had yesterday in Northern New Mexico puts everything into perspective. Albuquerque is a problem, but when you take a city of half a million residents and expect them to ride on a freeway system designed for 200,000 residents with no bypass system, your gonna have some congestion. Santa Fe is the fucking SUV capital of the world. Who told these fucking upper middle class suburbanites that Santa Fe was the perfect place to raise their 2.3 kids, 1.5 dogs, and 0.7 extramarital affairs? I have never seen a white picket fence in Santa Fe, more like fake adobe and stucco. 20 miles north of Santa Fe, you enter Espanola. In the '70's, Espanola's claim to fame was that it was one of the major low rider centers in the world. Per capita, there were more low riders there than in California. So as these guys up there have gotten older over the past 25 years, they've slowed down a little. OK, a lot. They can tell your not from around there if you drive over 20 miles an hour. The road toward the lake, still about 90 miles away, was bumper to bumper as we were all stuck behind one of these aging slow riders. By this time I was ready to fuck or fight, and sure as hell didnt see any hot chicks. The town near the lake is called Tierra Amarilla and is still known for its gun battles. Not historical battles, but current ones and there's only like 300 people that live there. Well, this town still posts a sign that says "You better run White Boy".

New Mexico News:
Now, I placed that link above because that particular NBC affiliate has taken it upon themselves to be the absolutely, most well-known, most complete station ever conceived of in the history of television. Of course they now have this very annoying habit of breaking into the only shows I watch, which aren't that many, with late breaking stories about the Governor's hangnail or how there is a brush fire in one of the vast desolate areas of this state. Like any of us really fuckin care!! They have a feedback line, which I will eventually call, if I ever get offline to bitch about their incessant arrogance. They play selected feedback every Sunday, but always, one negative and two or three positive comments. So its all fucking skewed.

Well, I haven't updated in four days because I ran into a lil problem with AOL and Qwest(my new ISP). Warning to everyone out there, make sue you get your AOL shit completely off of your computer before you try to switch over because AOL 6.0 will kill Windows and you will have to restore your entire hard drive!

Yesterday and today, I was at a teacher's seminar for my school. Now I don't sit well and after about two hours, I'm bouncing off the walls. And usually my mouth can get me in trouble, but not this time, Everyone is used to me I guess, but I must have been rambling about something, because someone told me I was beating a dead horse. Well, now that I have thought about it, that fucking horse deserved to get beat, well, because the fucker died on me!!
