I got some requests to take the word verification on my blog off. It has been a few years since I last got that snotty kind of automated advertisement comment, so I thought, "why not?" Within eight hours I got an anonymous advertisement comment asking me to visit their site. Then less than five hours later I got another, this time telling me just how entirely awesome the new electronic cigarette is and how I should buy one. Given my previous experience and the speed with which my blog was attacked, I am afraid I am putting the word verification back on. I'm sorry, but I don't like the automated comments coming through like they do. It's really sad that you cannot have a nice thing without having to defend it in some way. The weird thing is some people don't have that problem. I wish I knew the secret.
I have to go to my happy place...
I had another split shift. On the up-side, tomorrow is a day I can come home at a regular time. We still have a half-day of classes. There are more student led conferences, though. Speaking of which, OMG! A couple of them were horrible. The rest were pretty good. I guess, given my duty as a responsible human being and educator, I cannot elaborate. I'd love to, but, ah, hell...I gotta. One of the kids looked like he was trying to arrange himself so he could sit comfortably on a very sharp stick. He looked like he was physically in pain.
Alas, there are many things I see each day that I should not share. Let's just say, "Kids are funny."
