Back to normal?

Train set and match spied under the blind

Shiny and contoured the railway winds
And I've heard the sound from my cousin's bed
The hiss of the train at the railway head

Always the summers are slipping away
-Porcupine Tree

Lunes (as in lunatic)

Rough day. A few classes canceled. Not for good, but still a pain in the balls The telephone and the Internet won't work. Just one of those days. But warmer. It was mid 50's F today. Life is just exhausting sometimes.

This is the end

My only friend....the end
Can you picture what will be
so limitless and free?
Desperately in need

of some stranger's hand

in a desperate land

-The Doors

Martes (as in Mars; the Bringer of War)

There was no hot water to shower this morning as they were putting the new water heater in. Bollocks!

Another class canceled. We'll make it up on Thurs.

At least the damned know one thing - they're damned
-El Dude


A new class today. Sisters, mid and late 20's. One's an accountant and the other is a doctor. They were referred to me by Elena, another private student. Nice gals. Very bright. I've done this 50 times already. New students - always interesting. It was really fun.

Internet came back last night. Orange turned it off even though we hadn't received a bill in 2 months, and Don had called. It's like the blind leading the stupid here. Everywhere maybe.

Time for sleepiness. Make up class manana at 8:15. Ugh! But that's alright. I love class with Monica. She's been a student for over a year now. I know so many people here. I teach, therefore i am. It's only 4C and wet. It will be 9C tomorrow and sunny. It should be a nice day.

Big game for Atleti tomorrow. It's the quarter finals of the Copa del Rey. They are playing Celta Vigo, from the north and a second division team. They had a thrilling 5-1, 2nd leg win against Recreativo Huelva last week to advance on aggregate, 5-4. Huelva is also a second division team.


Never trust Massachusetts. The election of Scott Brown is a stiletto to the kidney of the health reform bill. I don't know how much it would have changed things, but it would have been better than nothing. Hearings to discuss booting Massachusetts out of the Union begin next Tuesday, led by myself.

The case against Massachusetts

  • They replace Ted Kennedy with a newbie Republican that spells the end of Health care Reform
  • They started all of the problems with the British in the 17oo's; See Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party,
  • Pat Smith resided there for many years
  • David E. Kelley, who unleashed such plagues upon us as The Practice, Boston Public, Ally McBeal
  • They don't sell beer on Sunday
  • The Red Sox
  • They are just a bunch of Massholes


Caught up on some much needed sleep. Woo hoo!

The humidifier i bought two years ago has saved my life. Our heat is electric and dryer than the Mojave Desert. My face was so dry i was like a mummy. But the humidifier and moisturizer has saved me. The weather has been warmer, like 50 during the day, which isn't bad at all.

Tonight i had pizza with American Laura and we watched The Invention of Lying. It was funny. Tomorrow i'll see Cara.


Trying to clean up my Mac's hardrive. 210 GB of space used! WTF. I must have a lot of MP3 duplicates.

My work schedule changes yet again on Monday. Now i have to go to Tres Cantos (up north by bus, 4 days a week). But, it's work.

Time to publish this lengthy missive
