Things my students said as I handed them assorted poems, and asked them to read them, fold them, put them in their pocket. (Poem in Pocket Day is April 18 but we will be on break)
* Do we get the same poem or different?
* Why am I carrying a poem around in my pocket?
* I don't have pockets
* Why did I get this poem about dogs? I want cats
* How many times do I need to fold the poem before I put it in my pocket?
* Can I trade my poem?
* Thank you for the poem, Mr. H!
Florence continues to be ridiculous.
This thing and the manual for it are both in the Galileo museum.
Not pictured: Galileo’s finger, which is also there, and which is super gross.
Newsflash: Florence is picturesque.

There's a group (https://www.parentsforfuture.org.uk/) formed to support kids in their #ClimateStrike, I think I was waiting for this. Saw (but can't re-find) a rumour there will be a call from students for solidarity action on May 3rd.
This video is clearly doing the "think of the children!" thing but, given that it's true and I've spent a lot of time trying to visualise this recently, I'll let them off. Watch it.
Would like to carry on a conversation about this; plz boost to help me find fellow parents / tired relics of failed campaigns hoping for one last shot at redemption. (Is that the plot of The Expendables?)
I forgot to post this on Sunday. As terrible as the tunnel is, it's nice to see the fecking Viaduct finally start to come down.

PB: never mind all the Duolingo I failed to make time for, I'm ready for this trip to Italy now.
I just ran my first full two miles since at least Christmas. In 26.5 minutes.
On the one hand this is much slower progress than I'd hoped for last summer. On the other, the fact that I can not only run for two miles without a break but even enjoy it is huge progress. A year ago I don't think I'd even ever done a half mile in my life.
