I had a few small snafus. My classroom was nowhere near ready and I spent all morning running around all sweaty doing last minute prep. Last minute prep included, but was not limited to, magic eraser-ing a lovely drawing of the male genitalia and a choice phrase or two off the side of one of my desks. I spent a lot of time on my hair, but it came out terrible in my school picture, and my ill-thought-out first day outfit looked less profesh and more like I walk-of-shamed into my classroom. Then, of course, within 5 minutes of 1st period starting I managed to work "G-Spot" into a conversation, and when I looked down to grab that pesky string that was hanging out of my jacket sleeve I realized it wasn't actually a string but rather the strap to my bra. Hanging out the sleeve of my jacket.
So, I made it. I'm exhausted as hell, and apparently they expect me to go back today. And for several months in a row. Yeesh. I don't know if I can handle this. I need a nap.
2. I spent my night recovering by sharing a bottle of wine with my friend Claire and watching Bad Teacher. It was actually a perfect First Day of School recovery activity. And there was the bonus of this:

3. Yeah, thanks to The Campaign I have some new followers. New followers, you need to know this about me and this alone. I LOVE JASON SEGEL. Like, bad. Like, really bad. Like, embarrassingly bad. I mean, this exists on my computer:
Well, maybe just a little bit.
But, really? Jason Segel is pretty much as sexy as it gets in my world. And if you don't agree...well, maybe we should hang out so I don't have to fight you for him.
4. Oh! Did you hear the news? My writing bestie Heather Trese has started blogging again! If you get a chance, stop by her blog and say hello. Heather's blog is awesome and Heather is awesome and your life will really be a better place if she is in it. Trust me.
Also my good buddy Melissa Landers has started up a group blog with some of her friends called Honestly YA, so check that out if you are looking for a new blog to add to your reader!
5. I have a ton of family obligations this weekend which, sadly, means no real time to write. I am so pumped to outline the changes I need to make to make my WIP AWESOME and time is just slipping away from me. I love my family, but I wish they would understand that I really need to harness this positive energy right now so I can run with it. Oh well...I'll do what I can.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
