my new sweater....


this is a pic of the awesome wool sweater I bought down in Austin, it's a zip/up front hoodie and extremely soft and comfortable. it was so cold this morning I couldn't resist wearing it to school, since I had on all black anyway. It's made by Life After Denim brand cothing. I am also posting the other color they had at the Stag store in Austin ,with grey and red, but I didn't feel like I could pull it off (too flashy maybe for okc,ha ), and I wear black and grey more anyway...

update before end of OCT...

hello! well I forget what I've already mentioned since I've been intouch via email with some readers. I had a great time in Austin Texas last weekend. I had an exceptional time just being away from OKC for a change and hanging with my bud down there and his bf. The usual stops were made. the Barton Springs dog park, seriously if you live in Austin, take your dog there once in a while and see the random hotness showing up..., went to a few AA meetings with my bud which were awesome, something very wonderful about being in a place where everyone is so open and honest and sticking to a belief in something (12 steps) and trying to follow those principles away from the meeting, I can't help but parallell it to a bible study when I go sometimes. It's like the way that people will say, you know what? life is still awful sometimes, and I still have bad days, and I have the same faults, BUT I remember this or that principle etc.... I always think about Christianity and what it'd be like if people were so adamant about following their beliefs out there day to day etc... anyway.........
we shopped at some very COOL places in Austin, my favorite Service Menswear, and a new store just named in GQ as one of the top ten in the nation, Stag. both are right on Congress street. I'll post what all I got eventually, this week has been so busy with catching up grading online essays from a week ago, and then we switched rooms into the old gym Monday. I arrived Monday to start unpacking the boxes and finding my stuff, and my principal comes in to do another observation. CRAZY, I had nothing planned cause I had that first class ahead a day on purpose, we open the book and I teach a quick lesson on something blah blah... the big news about the room is no ceilings and this huge heat/air unit is right above my room so i can't hear the kids and don't know if they can hear me if they are about 4 desks away from me... wow. on the other hand, I REALLY like how HUGE the room is, one big rectangle and I have the desks all spread out with 3 table in back with chairs that I walked around and found in the deconstructed auditorium corners here and there and brought to my room. Also I have some fabric from India hanging in my room to deflect the gymnasium echo effect of 6 ceiling-less classrooms in there.
well tonight my allergies are kicking in and jessica Simpson is a judge on the project runway finale which seems RIDICULOUS to me. If I were a finalist I'd have NO interest in anything she had to say about jack crap! ha ha. man i'm ready for the weekend, already dug up 3 tropicals from the yard and brought inside in case of frost, but I have yet to turn on the heat! $$
