I made you an LJ post, but I ated it. I have meant to update more this week and failed miserably, so here is a catch all post.

Happy birthday a little late, [ profile] wanderlustlover! Or... is it early? I am not sure with time zones. I hope it is/was wonderful.

I cannot believe it's May already. This year is flying by.

I am watching cute squirrels sproing around my now-green yard. Our flowers and plants are coming back, which is always a magical thing for me every single spring.

I finished Hatful of Sky, the second in Pratchett's Tiffany Aching series, and I am here to tell you that I love his witch characters with a love that is vast and deep. It's rare in fantasy (as we all know) that you see female relationships written about in such ways. I mean, female protagonist, antagonists, mentors of different stripes - and some supporting male characters, who are nice but not the reason for the story. I'd love to read more about Granny Aching, but more Tiffany and Granny Weatherwax would be juuust fine. I'll snag the third book from the library tomorrow, I think.

I meant to write a more complete review on my Unwigged and Unplugged concert experience, but I fail in that, too. Here is the website, though!

I am, I realize, not unhappy that SPN only has one more season to go. I still enjoy watching it, but yeah. Sometimes endings are a good thing.

I caved and now have a DW account. I am vivien there, with no 529. I don't know how to do the code, or I would. I don't really plan to do much with it. I might post fic and/or back up my journal there. I am keeping my LJ as my main journal, though.

Work is good! I taught a class for teachers for the first time, and despite being worried I'd screw things up totally, I was not as nervous as I thought I'd be and it was also easier than I thought it would be. I got very good reviews, too. So that was a huge weight off my shoulders.

This time next week I will be in OK. This trip happened a bit on the fast side, but I am glad I am making it.

Hokay. I quit talking now.

Waugh. Tomorrow the Governor's plans for budget cuts will be announced. It's not going to be pretty. The term "blood bath" is being bandied about.

I hate waiting. At least I'll be in schools tomorrow, observing kids and teachers hard at work. Hopefully I'll be able to keep doing that.

*kicks bad economy* There's a stimulus package for you.
