well the winter break is coming to an end... I had my okc bud S. over for dinner MOnday night with 2 other guys we know, a guy I know from the gym and that he knows from working downtown and then the other guy was his architect bf. I fixed lasagna and chocolate poundcake. I had my place all cleaned up, and then after dinner I probably over did it with shwoing guys various souveniers in my house from different countries and the stuff on the walls and rugs and the shirt i was wearing etc etc... but I guess I was pretty excited just to have company and feeling free about showing off my creative side. ha. We had a great time, and I sent everyone home with lasagna and cake.
(in case you haven't heard, Miep Gies died Monday at the age of 100. She was one of a pair of office workers who kept the Frank family hidden and alive during the holocaust. It was she who found Anne Frank's diary. I have to mention this since I used to teach the book yearly to my 8th graders)
I went to the adjunct prof meeting last night at the college where I'll be teaching again this spring. It involved safety training and procedures etc... I'm very thankful to have 4 classes again this semester which is the limit they will allow anyone who's just part time. I am going to write up a syllabus tomorrow since now I have an idea of what I'm doing (last sem. was my first teaching the class). The only thing different is I'll be teaching 3 days a week, 4 one hour classes, instead of 2 days a week of one and a half hour. SO one more day on campus etc.. blah. It's actually pretty cool we can have "online" office hours so I'll be doing mine half and half on/off campus. I'm definitley going to figure out a way to swim. I think I might have some before class time or before lunch time to use the pool on campus. That would be awesome compared to getting up at 630am to have a morning swim before breafast. although I've done it before.
tonight I'm meeting a guy for dinner in OKC at a mexican restaurant. He wasn't able to get off work on the late shift at the hospital so he asked if it could be an early dinner (he works the night shift as an RN). so we're meeting at 5:45pm which is actually pretty normal time for me. Although usually I do eat about 6 or 630 depending on if I can get to the gym by 430 or 5 etc...today I'll go to the gym around 1130 before lunch to get the work out over with.
I shave my face every other morning , so the timing worked out nicely that this is the morning I shave. I'll be ready clean shaven and wearing my MEXX jeans that fit me just so, and a thermal long sleeve with a light blue Quicksilver t-shirt that I got in NYC. RIght now I"m just watching the news about Haiti, which is really sad. I was in Central AMerica the year that Hurricane Mitch hit really bad, and there's nothing worse than disaster in an already poor 3rd world country.
