It’s a drag…

I’m being a bad boy again. I’m cancelling my 8:00 class for Tuesday morning. I only have one more teaching day left and there’s nothing left for me to cover that only takes one class period. I’ve thought about trying to condense a two day lecture into one day but I’m not sure it’s worth it. And I’ve tried to think of something else to cover that wasn’t on the syllabus and that’s not coming to me either. Tomorrow (Tuesday) is my last day of teaching for my 8:00 class. On Thursday, I’m out of town and I have someone else covering the class, and next Tuesday the costume designer is guest teaching, and a week Thursday I’m giving my final exam. So there you have it. I don’t think any of my students will mind not having to get up in the morning and I know I won’t mind.

Tonight I was invited to dinner at the faculty choreographer’s house. I’ve known her for 10 years and it’s actually her fault that I’ve spent my winter and spring in Iowa. It was quite nice. We had pasta, chicken and vegetables and sat around and dished about the school. She apologized over and over again for bringing me here in the first place. I’ve assured her it was a nice experience and that I’m glad I’d done it. It’s easier to say that now that the light has appeared at the end of the tunnel. The evening ended with us taking a walk in the balmy 80 degree evening.

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it but I’m going to Portland, Maine this weekend. My friend Michelle is performing in a drag show. If you were reading my blog last summer I posted pictures of the first performance she and her friends put on. It was a lot of fun, with muchos, muchos drunk lesbians in the backyard and garage of one of Michelle’s friends. The show was hysterical and was a huge hit. They performed again last October to a sold out show. So they’ve gotten the group back together and are performing once again. I’ll be sure to post pictures when I return. More than anything, it’ll be nice to be out of BFE, Iowa and in the large city of Portland

    Ah….sounds like you’ve got “short-timer’s” syndrome. 😉

    Enjoy the trip to Maine.

    Did you know that Portland, Oregon is actually named in honor of Portland, Maine? The story goes that two men were the “founders” and developers of the area, one from Portland, Maine and one from Boston, MA. They both wanted to name the city for their hometowns. Who had tails and who had heads has been lost to time, but the fellow from Maine was the winner.
