But Living, etc.

I've been a bad, bad blogger.

Yesterday in my ESOL class I tried to teach jokes. Normally, I wouldn't do a "unit" on jokes until the advanced intermediate level. My students are smart, but they're at a beginning intermediate level, and the jokes didn't quite work. I talked about puns, knock-knock and light bulb jokes. I told them why the chicken crossed the road. They looked at me. Finally, one of them said: "I see. The question is very strange, but the answer is very serious. It is funny."

Catherine Wagner read at CSUSM on Thursday, and we had fun hanging out with her and Ambrose this weekend. I'll post doodles etc later.

Next weekend: Feminaissance et WACK!
