What's Goin' On
My 19 year-old daughter whom I call Supergirl Two or SG2, a.k.a. Ultimate Spawn on her dad's blog, is done for the semester. She'll be living between her dad's and my house and...hopefully working. She has an interview tomorrow at a local supermarket. I always preferred waitressing when I was in college: fast money and you could cheat. This tells you that I am, in fact, 30% evil. hehehe She is still in suspence about a couple of her grades but she thinks she did well.
Meanwhile, Supergirl One or SG1, a.ka. Elder Progeny on her dad's blog (he's always been more clever than I, cunning runt!), called me today to announce that she is DONE for the semester and she is most happy and relieved. She said she had pulled an all-nighter and fell asleep at 6:30 a.m. today. My advise: take a blanket and a warm body and go lay out in the spring sun.
And me, I'm happy now that I'm home. Work had its magic moments, as it does daily. My thought for the day has been: I think that if children were properly entertained, they would learn so much more than if they went to school. Followed by a mantra - you think too much, you think too much...
So. I read this article in the New York Times on Sunday, went to Feministing today, at the suggestion of my daughter and had to talk about it here.
At feministing, I was introduced to the funny and charming Liz Spikle on a youtube video they featured. I'm looking forward to reading her blog which discusses mental health issues. I have a strong feeling she's on my side. :-) Check it out. Especially if you don't have a mental illness.
