Randoms

Random things today!
I've been buying those prepackaged salads for my work lunch.  I would love to be like those perfect women who spend their Sundays cooking and preparing their lunches for the week, but I also want to spend my Sundays not attached to a stove or in the kitchen.  So I head over to the grocery store, where they have wonderful salads all ready made.  I don't have to worry about throwing a bunch of stuff together in the mornings, I know exactly how many calories I'm eating, AND I get my veggies for the day. It's a win-win.  Plus, I found this edible cookie dough!  Yes, I know that all cookie dough is edible, but this stuff is supposed to not make you sickly if you eat it. It comes in a cup that I can take to work and have for dessert after my lunch. To make up for that salad I just ate instead of a cheeseburger.


Soccer season is almost over. I have become healthy enough to occasionally spend Zane's practices walking around the fields.  There's a sign saying that the distance around the field is a mile, but the pedometer on my phone says it's more like three-quarters.  Not that I'm complaining.  I've found some random along the way.  I'm glad that I am not the only Texan interested in preserving scientific facts rather than someone's "alternatives".  Facts are facts are facts. We all have our own opinions, and that's just fine.  But our opinions should be informed by real data, and there shouldn't be any debate over that. And we should at least be willing to listen to people and to consider their perspective, instead of unilaterally shutting them down. 


Dave Grohl, for those who don't know it, used to be the drummer for the band Nirvana.  However, he's been very busy since then, just being a musician and helping other musicians.  He's the hardest working man in show business, James Brown notwithstanding.  I found this quote from Mr. Grohl on the internet, and it resonated with me. I think I will make a poster and put it on the wall in my office so that the students who visit will  see it. Middle school kids try so hard to be like everyone else; but maybe they will at least think about this quote.  Maybe it will make sense to them someday, and maybe it will help them make a good decision one day.  
That would be really cool.
