My 6-year-old son just informed me that the new president made a new rule. It’s the "No more baths rule." So, guess who just vetoed that new law. Apparently even first graders were watching the inauguration yesterday.
Earlier this month Horror World posted an interview I did with the amazing Carrie Jones. Carrie hasn’t been able to post a link on her blog yet, as she’s been sunbathing (or something) in Vermont for the past couple of weeks. Here’s the interview. While on the subject of Carrie, I’ll say I finished her latest book, Need, the other day and loved it. Highly recommended. I hear she’s been working on something about possession lately. That might be good.
So, I’ve been teaching parts of the Bible in my AP Literature and Composition class. Because of various interruptions, the unit has stretched a week longer than originally planned. I tell ya, I will be glad to end it on Friday. I have a fundamentalist student in one of my classes and we are constantly clashing. My Wiccans, atheists and Buddhists are doing fine and understand why we’re looking at the Bible, but this one (there are really two, but one keeps it to herself) wants to argue for literal interpretations for everything. Well, everything except the Song of Songs/Solomon, where she wants to say the Christian interpretation of the song being about Christ and his church is the correct interpretation. No way it’s just an erotic love poem! Anyway, a couple more days, a quiz and a timed writing and we’ll be done with that. Just for shits and giggles, I’m also having them watch Dogma. George Carlin as Cardinal Glick. That’s just so brilliant!
Time to fish a certain boy out of the bath tub.
