Daria

(no subject)

Some guy on a web-based personal-ad service just emailed me to say I need to lose 50 pounds and get a new face.

First day of class

The good news is, they laughed at my reading-Beowulf-barefoot-in-the-snow joke, and a couple of others, too. Smart kids.

I'm not really sure how it went. I felt silly and clumsy, and I felt like there were too many long pauses and nervous smiles on my part. And I didn't think to go around the room and have everyone introduce themselves, like Katy did in her session. But hopefully I can do that next week.

The really good news is, the kids seemed to all be bright and articulate. I think the discussion should go well. And it doesn't matter if they like me or not as long as they learn from me. But I really want them to like me anyway.
