What should I show for a movie tomorrow? My students are, in essence, done with work days, but I can’t really start anything tomorrow (plus, after a week of MCAS, they’re really done with academia and there’s no need to push). I thought it would be nice to give them some down time.

I’d take them outside (they’ve been begging me to hold class outdoors), but it’s not supposed to be as nice as it was today. They won’t want to go out if it’s cloudy/rainy and 50ºF. Or, maybe they will, and I’ll tell them *I* don’t want to. In any event, it’ll be an inside play day.

We played softball today in my phys. ed. class. Damn, my arm is sore! As I get older, it takes longer and longer to warm it up, and I pay for it more and more when I shortcut that process. Ow! **editor’s note to Chili, who will say I deserve it: You’re right.**

I set my alarm to get up early for laps in the pool. Pfffft! I had low expectations anyway. My days have been long because of MCAS, and I wasn’t at all sure I’d have it in my to push myself. We’ll try again tomorrow.

Can you tell I’m between things to focus on?

Kiss of the Spiderwoman is the wrong answer, right? It's got Spanish in it, though!

Do you want your movie to be something they can chew on, or do you want pure brain candy? If you're going for the mindless decompression stuff, I say show Ironman - and bring some popcorn.
