On Friday Open Thread

@adorable-eggplant My week has been pretty weird too. I keep wanting to go out and do things, but I have nobody to do them with. It's been frustrating!

On Read Gabriel Garcia Marquez's Short Story "Light Is Like Water"

That story is beautiful. It kind of made me feel warm inside. I write, but I don't think I could ever compose a piece as short, sweet, and beautiful as this.

On You Can Now Enroll at Hogwarts Via MOOC

Do I put myself in the house I really want to be in, or do I acknowledge what house I know I am deep down (Hufflepuff)?

There's the rub.

Oh man. I had a post all set up, and then it logged me out and deleted it. I've been looking forward to this post though because my week has been pretty good. :]

1. Spring Break started today, and I am off all of next week.
2. I got my car back (finally) after being in the shop for two unexpected weeks.
3. Tomorrow I am getting my hair cut, and I am seeing Kathy Griffin.
4. My students were pretty hilarious all week.
5. I won at video games at D&B last night, and this is new for me.

6. My boyfriend is pretty awesome, and we've been successful at talking about things instead of being arguing pouting children. COMMUNICATION ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED. :]

On An Important Internet Classic: 10 Pranks That Will Spice Up Your Relationship

I teach, so I expected a bunch of my kids to play pranks on me.

The worst I had was one student trying to convince me he was put in jail last night, and I was like, "Why are you here then? You need a better prank."
