So how shocked was I today when one of the 7th graders quoted my blog to me?

Apparently at least one of my students' parents reads my blog. And may I say, Mr. H, that your son is a dear. He's one of my favorites, and I actually joke with my husband that I want to "keep" him when I leave the school because he looks enough like my husband to be his child. If my son is as polite and cool as yours, I will have done well. One bad apple may spoil the bunch, but all I cling to at the end of the day is the memory of the good ones.

But it never ceases to weird me out when people in my real life cite my online life.

Like I've had much of an online life lately anyway. I just don't have much to say, and I find that the more I write, the more I get uncomfortable in my real life. I find myself wanting to comment on stuff like releasing illegal aliens, but all I can think to say is "that's messed up", which doesn't make for a very interesting blog entry. I just don't spend any time online anymore. (Part of the reason is that my chore load has gone through the roof: I'm back to doing triple the laundry! If I had the time, I would love to talk about this Amritas post too.) But my last day of 7th grade is next Tuesday, so I'll be back on Wednesday.

And can I take your kid with me, Mr. H?

1 "your son is a dear" Whew, I was worried that the one kid who mentioned your blog was a Mike al-Moor in the making. "releasing illegal aliens" I guess you're not with the libertarian program (not necessarily a bad thing). I've had a multi-part series about immigration outlined for weeks with links already chosen to write around, but I don't know when I'll get around to even starting it. Fortunately (well, not so fortunately for America) the topic remains timely. I am going to write a sequel to that post you linked it adding a few more thoughts about women in the military. I find it very difficult to see anything wrong with imagining, say, you in a tank, though I've found at least one counterargument that may be better than "intuition" or "solidarity." I was kind of surprised by learning that DOONESBURY is in STARS AND STRIPES. Who says the military is a Rightist-only institution? Last week's storyline deals with a military recruiter. I have no idea how accurate it is, and I'll leave that for others to judge.

2 Sarah, We'll all patiently wait for you to post whenever you can. We understand that life goes on, and its time to recharge those life batteries. Just keep living it and post when you have something you want to say. We can be very patient when we have to. Subsunk

4 Not that I'm complaining. Yeah, but that's because you're too tired.
