Becki, I know, I know, but I had a class in standup comedy to create and teach. Then the school told me yesterday that they were not going to pick up the class again in the spring due to the noise level. Ummm, it's standup comedy, a room full of high school class clowns being funny together, yeah, it might be noisy...oh well, at least now I have some awesome new material teaching the class PLUS all of my former students are boycotting at school, I love them...
