Ok ... I'm procrastinating

I'm supposed to be developing a syllabus, assigning readings, deciding on in-class activities, gathering supplemental readings, establishing expectations, writing objectives, etc...

Ever since saying that I wasn't going to post again until March, I've been obsessed with this damned blog. Now everything shouts, "Blog Me!" Not to mention, my 1st Blogiversary is coming up soon. Shouldn't I acknowledge that by announcing something new and cool -- something I've been working on for a while and keeping semi-secret? Danielle's birthday is coming up, and she would like a little shout out. (she's not shy, in case anyone was wondering.) Little Man is doing fun and interesting things. I'm doing weird things (as usual) like wearing sneakers today. Who wears these things? Shouldn't that be discussed? I have all these f-ing memes that I promised to respond to. Can I do that without revealing too much about me? Mysterious Scorpio that I am. Also, can we discuss the constant misspelling of the word "weird" in blogland? People that I know well, are wicked smart, are excellent writers and tell a kickass story ... but can't spell WEIRD? Several people. Argh!

You see the dilemma? Even if there's no knitting, can't there be Living? Life? Observations? Bitching? I can't assault Wifey with all of my random thoughts, so shouldn't I assault you instead? If I'm allowed back into the fold, there might even be teaching stories...

And about that knitting thing ... can't I just knit a little stockinette? Some mindless garter scarf or something? Puh-lease? Pretty please? My fingers are threatening to dive straight for my nose in a public place unless they get a bit of the yarn-crack. Help!!

Ummm... you're overthinking! Just write the damn posts already! We, if you haven't noticed, are still reading.

Yeah, blogging and knitting have my vote. If you don't have some "me" time, what good will you be to your family and students??? Not to mention, selfishly, I was going to miss your wierd blog entries on these here internets ;)

(note the incorrect spelling, just for you)

I have many fine traits. Unfortunately for the unwashed masses, modesty is not one of them. Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday dear me-eee, happy birthday to ME!! -- and there will be yarn purchased on honor of the big day...

Now go back to your syllabus, etc! (You did want me to provide the responsible voice here right? Or, should I remind you know that blogging is a valuable outlet for relieving pent up stress?? Just let me know which side I need to argue, and I would be happy to rationalize either decision...)

So glad that you decided to post. Not sure I could wait a full 6 weeks. I obviously checked in hopes that you would. BTW, I hope to have the hiking scarf finished soon, I'll post a pic asap.
