ha ha ha... someone knows what I'm talking about.
well I broke into the Christmas file on my itunes tonight just for fun, the cool weather out and all just staying in tonight watching burn notice reruns on some cable channel. ahhh
I have been doing some teachign training the last 2 days away from school. it sort of sucked cause I only found out about it last friday, and then after work Monday had to get 2 days of stuff ready for a sub... yesterday and today wasn't so bad, I show up at my job usualy at 710am but for the training it was 830.. NICE morning time for dan. now I go back to school for 2 more days with the kids, and then just 2 more next week and BREAK is here.. :)
I was so excited yesterday to get a packaged I ordered in the mail when I came home for lunch and then I turned around after lunch to the post office to mail a gift to my former student in NYC. did I mention he's going to Madrid for an international design exhibition. a lamp he made was chosen. anyway, i bought him a medium sized black sweater hoodie like I bought in Austin.. I know it will be perfect for his trip.
man my new workout routine is having some good effects. mainly I notice my back and legs getting into better shape. the routine from men's health is mosly trading back legs and back upper body stuff, so go figure. my austin buddy is in my prayers lately, he had some relapses from his soberness after I left town and I've heard since he's checked into a facility for 3 months. I know it's what he wants and needs so I'm not too concerned cause I know he's getting help and is aware enough that he needed the help. but I do pray he'll figure it out and come to peace with it all etc...
for now I'm off to bed, diving in, and up EARLY to get back to class and whip those kids into shape with some of this new training I've been put through lately from the highschool and the college lately. oh my.

i suggest letting this play while scrolling down to read or moving on to another window. the video ain't all that, but I thought the song was nice. poem below...
Sleeping on the Ceiling
It is so peaceful on the ceiling!
It is the Place de la Concorde.
The little crystal chandelier
is off, the fountain is in the dark.
Not a soul is in the park.
Below, where the wallpaper is peeling,
the Jardin des Plantes has locked its gates.
Those photographs are animals.
The mighty flowers and foliage rustle;
under the leaves the insects tunnel.
We must go under the wallpaper
to meet the insect-gladiator,
to battle with a net and trident,
and leave the fountain and the square
But oh, that we could sleep up there...
today was such a great fall day. It's a good time of year to consider takeing a new way home this week. drive down a different neighborhood street, exit the highway one early or one late. See how the trees change color that you maybe hadn't noticed before. my red maple is changing nicely orangely yellow red.. the loropetalum bushes striking bright red in the center of its' dark purple leaves...
thanks for posting this to blogger Active Android ... I love the intereviews on the street at the end with all the walkersby looking at the camera so intrigued... classic. I can't wait to get back to India, very friendly inquisitive place indeed. also check out the sikh guy in the turban, these big huge bearded guys are all over and HOT. :)
