I think we should shut down our history blog. It doesn't accomplish what we intended. The three really helpful people could be put on an email list. The rest just read what we write and one of them takes it for his own research.
This is a bad day to make that decision; besides I can't make it on my own. My writing partner and I own it together, though most of the work has fallen to me lately. We put that up to generate feedback. Most of the valuable feedback comes via email from only two, sometimes three, people. I talked to my WP about this on Sunday. He hasn't made up his mind.
I'm tired of this project. I want it done and gone out of my life. I will not help with the next in this series, and as far as I'm concerned it can remain unwritten. I like this subject less and less.
I need to buy girl sox today. Lots and lots of girl sox, all sizes. Having children is an expensive proposition.
My kids love the Sister's Grim series by Michael Buckley. They're fun stories. I'm using one of them, the first one, in my critical reading class. My students love it as well.
Linden Lab's Second Life had such potential. It's degenerating into a back alley full of petty criminals, drug addicts and perverts. Since Startek assumed control of ToS violations, enforcement is haphazard at best. Today we had an old-time griefer come into our area. He's an obese drug addict who fornicates with a girl from Wisconsin. She's now pregnant. I have no pitty for her; she's as stupid as he is.
Startek protects its own. He's still there after an hour and a half! Job well done! or not.
I'm killing this blog eventually. No one reads it. I do not understand how a blog about gerbils can have hundreds of followers and this excellent, exiting, well-written, blog with pretty pictures has almost none. And I'm so sweet too. ... How puzzling.
I hate facebook. I no longer go there. Some Second Life fool thought he found me on facebook. He didn't. My page is private with only a few other writers having access. I haven't been on it in months.
Occasional has promissed a guest post. Gary Croby promised too, but I think he forgot. I'd like to get Patricia Briggs to write one, but I don't know her at all. She writes about wicked fairies and such inhabiting an Eastern Washington community. Good books.
... time for me to go teach ... such a day. All I want to do is crawl back into bed. ... Now I go teach someone else's children.
