Wordle Never Lies

You know, it turns out this blog is about the other guy. This whole time I thought it was so obvious that Barack Obama was my candidate that I haven't gone around shouting "Barack Obama" to the rooftops of the world, but it turns out that without even meaning to I mention that other, more spiteful, one a lot. In fact, he comes up nearly as often as my two favorite words: thinking and busy. Here's the proof.

I'm Really a Giant Nerd

How excited was I that I was finally able to get this to work for my calculus discussion board about homework help questions? Don't ask. It's too embarrassing. It's quite possible that I high-fived myself...but at least it wasn't a high-π, which is just about the nerdiest thing I've ever done in public.

Too Busy to Blog

So, I've been busy with teaching. Not bad busy, just busy. Too busy for important things like blogging.

I will not, however, be too busy to vote on November 4, despite what you may think after watching this video, which amused me, even though it was yelling at me to vote. Yelling at the woman who even voted for school board members and shoe-ins in the primary. Funny. And is that how you spell "shoe-in"? Probably not.
