A Fun Noember

Well tonight is the election, should be interesting to watch unfold. Started working on my NANOWRIMO story. It's kind of difficult at the moment as unfortunately I spilled a soda on my laptop last week and shorted out the key between the c and b on my keyboard. Looking to get a new one at Christmas perhaps, we will see.

I hope to get some of my story posted shortly, so far I have refused the temptation to revise so that part of my goal is going well.

Anyway, off to watch the election!

Kingdom Hospital

Red Dragon Tattoo (LP Version) - Adam Schelsinger

Ah Netflix...you got to love Netflix.

Red Dragon Tattoo by Fountains of Wayne...awesome song, I had heard it before but had forgotten about it until I heard it being played on Kingdom Hospital. Yeah, so I rented Kingdom Hospital from Netflix since when it was on television I was working at night and did not get a chance to see it.

I love it! I especially enjoy the references to other King novels and such that are in it. Its amazing to me how much of the things he has written tie into the Gunslinger saga. I am just in awe of the man really.

Gonna have to figure out how Ian does the whole music thing on his blog so I can start adding some of my eclectic taste in music on here for the masses that are not reading my stuff! Oh well, hopefully things will pick up since I am actively blogging now. I figured it out!

I am excited about NaNoWriMo, I have my basic plot swirling around in my head now. Still trying to work out the particulars but I know it begins with an event just after the Civil War in the South somewhere. I like it really, I ran some ofthe basics by my wife and father and they both seemed to really like it and get excitied by the possibilities. Now all I have to do is write it..should be fun!

Getting Better...

Well I spend the day working on my lessons for the next week and reorganizing myself for school. I actually think that I made a big difference in how things will go for the next 9 weeks. I feel more prepared now, so much more than I did for the first 9 weeks.

I am trying to figure out what I am going to do with my classroom website. I don't think any of the kids have even looked at it so I want to spice it up a bit. I have a few ideas, but I am always looking for more!

So, what would you want to see on a classroom website that would draw you there? It having content about the topics we are working on is a given, but in today's society there has to be more, some sort of entertainment to draw the students to it so that they want to check it out and see if anything is different.

So Ideas?????
