My eyes! The goggles do nothing!

Well...my brain is full of sciency wiency stuff.
I just helped tutor the grade 11 japanese student staying with my brother. I had to relearn a bunch of biology I haven't looked at in ages: parts of the cell, all about bacteria and wading through the latin gobbledegook that is taxonomy...and apparently, there are now 6 Kingdoms in taxonomy instead of 5. Sheesh! I am constantly amused at the need for scientists need to describe and classify. They divided a kingdom into 2 just to be more anally descriptive and divisive...rather arbitrarily if'n you ask me...but then I still think Pluto should be a planet, so what do I know? :)

Yesterday was bliss. Maxing and chillaxing and relaxing all cool and shooting some b-ball outside of the school...and all that. I relaxed...I made a fiery hot breakfast of taters and sausages with some chipotle peppers in them (they cooked up hotter than I thought) and finally finished The Time Traveller's Wife. I highly recommend it. AND we got tickets for last night to see the local production of Waiting for Godot. It is a somewhat experimental and obscure play. It's a play by Samuel Becket I've always been curious to see but never figured it would make it to way out here... It's just collections of dialog between 4 bizarre people as they wait for someone. Not so much plot as exposition and absurdity...Not for everyone but *I* liked it.

And, my trusty new appliances came. They look very cool. I gave them all hugs of welcome.
I have thoroughly relaxed and today made up some muffins and pumpkin cookies, and even tried my hand at celiac baking. My sis-in-law was recently diagnosed celiac...so since I was going over there today to tutor Kyoka, I thought I'd bring her bakey munchables. It's so unfair that I bring over other stuff and she can never eat them. I even put peaches in them (which my brother hates) so they are all for her. Score.

Anyhoo...time to get back to the pledge drive mines. I just ahve to keep reminding myself it is for a good cause and I think I am ready to get back to it for a little while longer. It's all over friday, so I can see the light at the end of the tunnel...faintly.

Cheers.

Good for you for helping to tutor the young'un!
And for working the pledge drive.
Six kingdoms? I thought it was just plants, animals, and fungi. What hole have I been living in?
