Today I went to school and got nothing new achieved or done. It's like we're done our work and can't admit it to ourselves, so we sit around, crack jokes, and then go home. Really, there are worse ways to make money.

I had a tuna melt for lunch! Very exciting.

What was NOT exciting was The Happening. This is a terrible movie and I implore you not to see it. I saw Forgetting Sarah Marshall as well and even the copious amounts of Kristen Bell couldn't convince me this was the new Superbad. Funny, though not hilarious. You see WAY too much of Jason Segel's schlong. The word 'schlong' should appear more in daily conversation.

But I couldn't resist anyway.

Well, that's that. Or, it pretty much is that. Done, that is.

Other than a bit of marking and some time spent doing professional development for a couple of days, I've finished my first year of teaching. Without a doubt, this was one of the hardest, most time-consuming things I have done in my life. It's also one of the most worthwhile. There's a certain satisfaction in life that comes from looking around at everything you have and everything you're doing and knowing that it's all going to turn out just fine.

There were many days when it didn't feel like it. In many ways, this semester wasn't as good as my first. Switching schools, dealing with new people, and teaching a course I'm not qualified for all put me through the ringer. But I worked hard (too hard as Catherine can attest to) and it's pretty much done.

Crazy.

So, I did what most normal people would do. I went to see The Incredible Hulk this afternoon and enjoyed it quite a bit. It's not the downer-fest that Ang Lee's Hulk was and the fact that Iron Man shows up at the end is pretty cool. It delivers action and two beefy characters tearing up Yonge Street.

Otherwise, things are okay. Married life is wonderful and Catherine deserves many awards for putting up with me. Yet on top of all of this, she even went out and bought me a Transformers Animated Starscream figure. I tell you, this girl is gold.

What else can I say? Not much, because the buzzer just went letting me know that the laundry is finished and that I must continue on with my house-husband duties. My wife expects a clean home, though I don't have to worry about dinner tonight because she's going to Blue Jays game and I'm meeting up with Scott, Ben, and the Northview Heights crew (where I did my practicum) for beer and mayhem. Scott said he was paying, so that's even better.

Behave!
