boba fett is short for roberta fettuccine

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.

Made it to Florence, where the wisteria are truly astonishing. Sorry about the crappy pictures - the journey was long, and we didn't get cleaned up and back out of the hotel until the light was fading, but I had to share this four storey

@CobaltVelvet scientists: here's a black hole with the mass of billions of suns, an event horizon as large as the solar system, and an inferno of an accretion disk that's blasting out unbelievable amounts of hard radiation.

Fediverse: i wanna pet it.

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.
