run the fuck away

It's morning...

And what a morning it is. I've got a one on one with a student from 8:30-10:30, a meeting with another student during lunch (or perhaps earlier- hopefully), and after that I'm leaving to meet Cate, and take her to the SUNY Health Services. Poor dear is sick as I've ever seen her, coughing like you wouldn't believe.

I actually had a dream that I remembered last night which is unusual. The dream itself was unusual too though... Cate and I were at my parents' house (my parents were absent), having a threesome with Cate's friend Roo. 'Cept it really wasn't Roo, that's just the model my mind used, it was decidedly someone else in manner and bearing. Don't know who, if anyone.

There you go. I've officially posted a dream into LJ.

Read about halfway, and imagine the gasp I made at mention of a "radius" and "torque".


Okay, so lets analyze the day, shall we? This morning, I met with Annette, a delightful student. She's sharp, full of questions, and refuses to bend over and take it from New Horizons, and does things- like demand one on one sessions with instructors (read: me). She's in the Java track, and knows programming- but from the COBOL era. A pleasure to have in class, she might not be a genius and the sharpest knife in the drawer, but she is still sharp, and learns well.

Then, at lunch, I'm meeting some guy from KAPL (Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory) to tell him what material our JBuilder class covers.

Then, I leave as quickly as I can, and try and get to Colonie Center as rapidly as possible, in order to meet Cate, so I can accompany her to health services, and get this respiratory bug looked at.

The weekend.

I meant to be productive last night, but I was dead tired, Cate was sick, so it was an episode of "Red Dwarf", a few episodes of "Gargoyles", and some reading. I've almost finished the second book in the Harry Potter series. These are definitely books I would have liked growing up; 'course, I would have thought Harry was a stupid jock, and been madly in love with Hermione (at that age, I was just like her). Actually, the only characters that I find personable are Hagrid, Dumbldore and Snape. Harry is a stupid jock, Ron is a toady, Hermione needs valium.

Dinner was... wonderful. Cate and I went to Saso's with Jeremy. Wow. It was good.

Starting with some wasabi and chowder filled spring rolls, and some sushi. The main course, for me, was seafood ramen- real ramen. Oh, and lets not forget the really good chilled sake. Mmmm... with green tea fried ice cream to finish up.

An orgasmic meal, let me tell you.
