Hiya, Laura! Hi, Cil!!

Oh - hey - just got word: the first grant ap I wrote for my theater, back in December, for LA County Arts Commission funding -- they're giving us $16.400. My colleagues are smooching my cellulite-embroidered ass, and rejoicing as you might guess. Got five grant ap's out, another 3 in the hopper for August/Sept... we just may make it!!!

CONGRATS, PENNY!!

Sorry, I like handwriting.  Cursive, as you call it.  I like printing, too, but cursive is a wonderful thing and now it's going to go the way of the dodo bird.  And that is not a good thing, if you ask me.  So, schools are all about these big tests now?  They used to be about learning and teaching and a variety of subjects.  Now it's all about some school district tests?  Maybe that's why the youth of today is so illiterate.

A dodo bird probably has better handwriting than I.

I had such bad penmenship in second grade that as punishment, my teacher put me in the big refrigerator box that was standing at the back of the room (her version of a time-out, I guess).  It was completely open in the back and there was a desk in there, but you couldn't see anything, except for the inside of the box.  My parents were so mad that they came down to the school and "had a talk" with my teacher.  I never had to go in the refrigerator box again...but it didn't help with my penmenship. ::) It can still be pretty bad.

Back from a jog.  As I was heading home I saw a big man with a bigger dog.  He did what he should have done and brought the dog around to the opposite side away from me.  However, the dog went for me anyway - and I mean WENT for me - really scary.  He lunged at me and I have no idea if his teeth were bared and was going to bite, but I somehow armed him in the head so his mouth never got near me.  His owner was so mortified and smacked that dog so hard - I hope the dog learned something, or this man better learn how to operate a leash better or put a cone on him.  My arm bone is a little sore right now.

Until later!

Please don't be cranky, MBarnum. Or else you might need some therapy, like Barnum:

Oh, I'm glad someone listened to their Stu Phillips CD - I really adore it.  I had a Big Hunk for my sweet, although had I read the cake posts I would have gone for a piece of cake.

If he is mildly dyslexic I'm surprised his parents haven't been instructed on ways to help him. 
Help, my foot, the school system says there is no problem! He scored well on the State Standardized assessment Tests (his Mother has accused his teacher of helping him cheat) and he reads better than most of his peers (the majority of whom read well below grade level).

Sounds like a good birthday, Cillaliz.

It was, actually.  I was kind of moody for a while.  I told the woman sitting next to me tonight that I was a bit draggy and I thought it was the weather. .  She said, "Oh, like your birthday doesn't have anything to do with that...you'll be fine tomorrow"  It made me laugh.  It's all been better since then.
