Had five takers for Dungeons and Dragons club! Trying a MTG draft in person at my LGS tomorrow, my first. Going to see the Mariners play their last game of the season in a couple weeks. Seattle treating me well so far.

Starting an early morning game club for my students who want to learn Dungeons and Dragons. Turns out there is an LGS just a few blocks away from the school. Called them up and they do kid-friendly D+D events twice a week. This is going to be fun.

One of my sixth grade students described himself as a “male Snow White” and did his project surveying the iterations of a certain “invention” on shapes. “Shapes are everywhere. It is a language. You cannot escape shapes.”

In the case of teaching middle school science and math, “returning to tradition” is an absolute dumpster fire of a choice. I hate physically grading papers. I hate all the junk. And class management becomes so much easier. A wave of silence and serenity washes over my classroom

Died because they wouldn't let him pay off his $1 bail. What an immoral system.

I'd love to know who's out there doing great work on early modern women and marginalia. Self-promotion very welcome!

"Mom, can we have charismatic megafauna?" "We have charismatic megafauna at home."
Unpopular opinion: I don’t think we should be cloning extinct animals like mammoths if we can’t be bothered to keep extant elephants from going extinct.
