Me & 2 of My Fave Peeps

This picture is six months old, but I like it. So there.

How Glass Blocks Brought Joy to My Hum-Drum Existence

I've owned this house for more than six years, but the basement windows have always been boarded up. I've had several visitors from Singapore (besides Rohaizad) and they were all afraid to go downstairs because it was so dark and dungeon-like.

Well, today as I sit here typing, I am getting glass blocks installed down there. What a life-changing experience! The dungeon is no longer a dungeon! If I wasn't such an inhibited person, I would've set up a folding chair down there and watched the workers work. Instead I just go down there every three minutes and look.

Like Shouting "Fire!" in a Crowded Theater

I have the greatest classroom in the world. It's up in the corner of the fourth floor of my school and has huge windows overlooking the city skyline. When I sit at the piano working with my choirs, I can see the panoramic view.

Last Friday I was directing my choir and behind them I saw a blimp fly past. I was so startled, I shouted "Blimp!" Probably not the wisest thing to shout in a room of high school girls.
