spring break around the corner.....

I like the last two pics. one with a black guy at the far right and the last pic with a really white guy at the right....

sup doc

These Doc Martens are on my radar right now. The top two I like for summer, although the whole canvas shoe seems to be just keeping in line with current trends like the Tom's shoes... I see these on campus on the very brave alternative boys, skater rocknroll types.. it looks sort of interesting, but it sort of takes me by surprise to see this sort of ballet slipper looking thing on some guy. .. for canvas I'll stick with the vans slip on style..so I doubt I'd ever get the top two shoes. maybe the brown.
what I do like is the grey or brown suede show below. They remind of the Bally shoe I saw at Saks in Houston priced way out of my range ($475). the only thing is, I got a doc marten shoes with the white sole on 'em and I hardly wear them cause the fit wasn't like my others Docs and also it has a bowling shoe look I didn't expect...

these two pics show the Bally shoe, and my last Doc Marten purchase.

when a metamorph finds you interesting, don't take it likely...


that was the quote from a star trek this week. the one where this absolutely beautiful tall dark haired woman is taken out of "stasis" before she was supposed to meet her mate from another planet to make peace between them etc etc. blah. anyway she's an empath who can please any man etc etc and instead of her intended she "bonds" with Jean Luc, he painfully resists her, and she goes on to wed the weirdo dude from another planet with her heart always belonging to Captain Picard. well you get the picture. anyway, I really like that one episode, it makes me think of Lance from college and how he's the one guy I mentally connected with that I'd ever want to try a love life with. if that makes sense.. anyway. this post is really about "the Single Man". went out with my buddy tonight to see the film at the art museum downtown. very interesting film. what I like most about it was the attention to detail of the early 60s time period. clothes hair sets.....very serious film.... the ambiguous ending got to me a bit. I discussed with my friend how I'd like to imagine was might have happened next... Juianne Moore is gorgeous as ever. the movie really gives you a sense of what it must have been like in those times being all underground trying to find a true love... I couldn't help but consider FIrth's performance throughout the film. his character remains a bit prim throughout, but he does carry the film well. if you see the film, let me know your thoughts.

idols and essays...

I had a lot on my mind today... I stayed up way too late last night getting the papers graded since they were promised to be handed back today. and since I couldn't turn off Am Idol ( my favorites were all the blond girls and the white headed chick), I was up until 1 am getting it all done. woke up with that feeling of being up too early for a flight at the airport even though it was my usual 630 alarm. and then the news on tv about the Dutch guy that lost his gold medal because of his coach's mistake, and all day long I couldn't decide if I felt worse for the speed skater or his coach, I still can't decide, just so unfortunate for both! anyway, I really stuck to my list of things to do in class today in what little time I had which is about 50 minutes tops. pass out quiz, take roll. insruct to get work out with name on it for me to initial as I come by. peer review activity, comma mini lecture, and then pass back the essays. I barely had time in two of my classes to read part of my favorite ones in those classes. one was this gnarley looking tattooed smokey smelling skinny tough looking guy who always wears a jean jacket. turns out he's a dad, and he wrote the most wonderful descriptive paper about visiting his Italian grandmother in Texas, describing her yard, manner, and how she taught him how to cook lasagna...
The other was this Pakistanian guy who wrote about when he was seven. His mom told him to watch his brother as she was busy preparing lunch, and his brother ended up knocking into the table and having hot tea scald his front side. He wrote of the terribly guilt he felt and how his mom put slices of tomato on the kid and his dad coming home to rush him to the hospital... I hope to someday have a moment to tell that writer that in my culture we don't expect a seven year old to be responsible enough to keep a kid from getting burned, I could tell he still feels very much to blame. This other guy who is rought looking tattooed red head guy dress really rough somedays, and then other in tucked in button up shirt and slacks. he really seems to be very earnest in his return to college. well anyway, he wrote about how he and his brother and mom moved in with the grandmother a few years back and how very religious and disapproving the grandma was, he ended up in jail somehow, and when he got out the granma was really sick and completely different looking, and he wrote about how she died and he felt like he really let her down because of the way he was living and how rough it was for the family when they all moved in etc.. and the disapproval he knew the granma had... ahhh.
there were many others like this one girl who had cancer as a kid, got married and moved away from home, divorced and moved out east working at hooters, and then one day moved back here to go to college and how estatic her family was and how much she loves spending time with her granma. this other freshman guy wrote about how he fractured his spine as a kid and couldn't walk and thought he going to be paralyzed but after the surgery he suddenly got back his feeling and then able to move etc etc... many were about first time trips or graduations. others about getting caught shoplifting, first time at a nudist colony, breaking a knee, going sledding, playing in a band, and becoming a jehovahswitness. yeah that was an interesting read...
worked out legs today and will sleep SO good tonight after only 5 hours last night. blah
tonight's idol, if anyone's watching, I like the hefty guy in the tshirt and guitar, and the last guy. of course the two tall guys very cute. :)

so good



from another blog, had to post it in case anyone hasn't seen this...

shirtless, aka place to shoot...


again about Billabong

I am grading papers all day..... I am posting a picture of the coat I bought in NYC last Dec. I received it back from my friend in Dallas where I'd left it over the new years weekend. wearing it here in Okc ever since, especially since the weather is still so cold. I don't know if the pic does it justice but it's sort of blackish grey brown with some brownish plaid stripes across it. I got this at the Billabong store off of Time Square. the thing is so comfortable and cozy with a sort of faux black furry sherpa on the inside. all right enough about that....
So far I've read 2 essays about best friend who died, one about mom getting cancer, and others about divorce, joining jehovahswitnessses, meeting your biological father, two about first time out of OKlahoma (one to Las Vegas, the other CA), moving from multicultural CA to small minded OKC, lots of Gradtuation from High School, and many many other mind numbing others.... actually I don't mind the personal ones so much, it's a great release of expression for these kids processing thoughts about those personal things, growing up and making bad decisions, dealing with diabetes, death of a parent to diabetes....etc. THe assignment was a shared experience essay. It's amazing how people will open up once you get 'em started. I used to get some of the same response teaching 8th graders poetry, it just comes through those struggling with all sorts of things in their lives. we are all so different and all so the same. I'm only 1 and 3/4 finished grading out of 4 classes, so maybe they won't get these essays back until Wednesday, not tomorrow.
(yes, thats a rug I brought back from Afghnstn on the floor, it was custom made from a photo of a tile floor of this house in Austin that I really liked...)
