Children no longer "borrow," they "redistribute." Complete bullshit. It doesn't matter that it's not really borrowing, your 2nd grader understands the concept of borrowing, she does not have a f#*@ing clue what the word "redistribute" means. Next - lattice method multiplication. Problem one - kids don't know what a lattice is so calling it that doesn't conjure up any connection for them. Problem two - you already can't read their smudgy, dull, indecipherable pencil numbers, why are we making it worse by asking them to make a diagonal grid in a one-inch space. And then have them put the numbers into the tiny diamonds?

Anyway, so here it is...Ta Da!!!...I am now on Twitter. I figured out how to get on all by myself and set everything up. I really don't know what I am supposed to do over there, I mean you can't even "like" anyone's comments, but I am so 21st century blogger now. I had a personal account which I never used, but while I was fooling around last night, I did comment on something Boy wrote. One of his friends "favorited" it (a lame-ass substitute for "like") and by morning Boy had erased my comment. I considered commenting on the fact he did that, but figured it would spur on teenage unpleasantness.
My next big accomplishment will be switching my domain name to Google and then making my URL a ".com" versus a "blogspot.com." That ought to send me over the edge (past cutting edge if you will) trying to figure it out. If I do not have to be hospitalized/medicated after that I want to figure out how to get the formatting on the actual blog to behave. I would ask The Party to help me, but, one - he's still in Paris, and two - it will likely devolve into our usual conversation which is "You're stupid" "No, you're stupid." Said with love of course.
