    Barbara's back! A little shaken from the experience but none the worse for wear. That might have been a tad too much excitement when you're 104 years old.

    She'd like to say that her abductors were very courteous and treated her like the lady she is. But now she'll dust her skirt off, renew her lipstick and face the new day.

    And good morning Cantina.

    Thank the lord. They don't make women like that anymore. It's a pity.

    Whenever anyone in the Cantina uses the word "normal" in relation to other Cantinaites, I always add "for us" it makes so much more sense that way.

    Good morning. I think they are about to kick me out of the teachers room. They want everyone to go home early. I don't think I'll complain.

    No, no, don't complain, but why do they want you to go home early? I thought the thing was to try and stay forever and look like you're working super hard.

    According to the blurb on the bulletin board it was Susie and we are now slowly returning to normal (for us)

    I am debating about whether to get an avie or not to replace the space where my pixels go.

    It is technically spring break, no classes, and they are trying to get the workaholic Japanese folk to go home. I'm just waiting for someone to leave. I don't want to be first all the time.

    And the "working super hard" is usually reduced to "working" and only in a limited sense. If you are at your desk and the computer is turned on, they tend to be happy. Took me a long time to figure that out.

    These guys working 70 hours a week. They were reading email and browsing the web.

    Head teacher just said, "come on guys, go home already."

    I'm gone, see you later.

    Because people are idiots. My father suffered two severe cerebral hemorrhages when I was a child which left a large part of his body paralyzed. People treated him like he was mentally disabled all the time, never talking to him when one of us was present and asking us, for example, if my father wanted a cookie.

    I should've been more patient, it seems.

    I'm okay. At work. Hungry. Tired. About ready for the holidays.

    So, you know, the usual sup?

    I was going to make some abnoxious comment about people being stupid or assholes. But it is more basic than that.

    It is people being ignorant and not doing their homework, this is combined with, if it sounds good, it's good enough.

    People do that crap in the weirdest situations. My wife speaks English. A little slow, since we speak Japanese most of the time, but she understands wonderfully. I don't have to be careful at all. And yet, and yet, my mother, god bless her, talks to my wife like my wife is three.

    She treats my wife like she is mentally disabled. Then she wonders why my wife doesn't want to go visit. I love my mom. I call almost once a week. But, even knowing she doesn't mean to be mean, I get annoyed and don't try to put the effort into getting my wife to go for a visit.

    I can only imagine how much worse it is for people who have their physical disabilities mistaken like that.

    Here is my own personal

    Good Morning Friends!

    Didn't wake up until 5:30 instead of my usual 4 this morning. But I did go to bed late and took awhile to fall asleep, so I guess it's all the same.

    ....Aaaaaand, I have nothing to talk about that isn't baby related. There is literally nothing else on my mind. A little annoying but whatever.

    So how's your Monday treating you?
