Today I learned that my friend Donna died. I have written much about her over the years, although I never identified her, and I never tried to get any of the stories published. If I looked up the old Facebook status "It's Complicated" in the dictionary, it might say "my relationship with Donna." But instead of dwelling on the difficult times, I will always remember how funny she was; she would do almost anything for a laugh. She was truly one of a kind. RIP my friend.

It finally rained -- YAY. It wasn't a huge storm, but at least it was something. I finished grades, and now I'm in that day before students have access to them, so no outraged A- or B+ students emailing and demanding an accounting (yet). We had sad news yesterday, that one of Bob's cousins passed away over the weekend. And, I am irritated about something minor in the scheme of things...recently I've bought a few kindle books, and they don't allow lending! WTF? If I bought paper I could just hand it to anyone I want. This is a major downside of e-reading. What gives, amazon?

Working away on end of semester grades, which are due May 19. I have many ideas swirling around for writing and drawing but...they will have to keep.

I have been walking around barefoot because my shoes and socks are too hot (it has been feeling like July, not like May). I haven't worn no shoes in YEARS. I didn't think I'd be able to walk. Buess what? I can, and it feels good.

Happy May! The semester is really winding down, my last class is Tuesday. It was a pretty good semester overall.

I've been thinking a lot about ethical behavior (even more so than usual) and it seems to me that there is a shocking low level of ethics -- not just among the famous & well-known, but among the ordinary & little-known. It's depressing.

Somewhat unrelated, and it wasn't the spark for this post...

A reminder to continue to boycott!
Stewart's must groove with high-stakes tests.

Progress is being made on the addition to Campus Center. Also...a lot of noise!
