I'm going to brood about getting censored for telling about donating my rectum to science for charity when I got a colostomy to survive cancer and then read about somebody walking for "Breast" cancer. I guess you can say "breast" but not "rectum".

Play Go Fish with my niece and nephew, because my lying frigid boyfriend did not want to have kids and went and joined the Army and died in the siege of Normandy. So now I am an old maid that paints at the Senior Service Center with all the others of us unwanted old ladies.

Spend some time with my youngest while my oldest skis with his friends in CO.

We'll probably go bowling, drive up to Moon Marbles, maybe go swimming, and if it warms up enough, hit the zoo.

Sue, it's not that she can't entertain herself; it's simply that you are far more entertaining than anything she could come up with on her own.

The most excitement I'm going to have is going out with some friends to look for chert to practice our flintknapping skills (i.e.--smash it into pieces). Other than that, I have three 20 page papers that I need to get a start on. So basically, it is just a week without classes for me. A sort of amnesty week. Just a break from classes and nothing more.

Pulling my hair out, one a a time. That, or hiding from my youngest who can't seem to be able to entertain herself AND pulling my hair out. When the hair runs out, I'll switch to fingernails.

I am going to work, read some books for class, and wait and see what the weather will do next in Lawrence, Ks.

Welllllll - we thought it was spring, but yesterday it snowed all day and most of the night sooooooo, we will be shovelling the stuff again. It was just about all gone. Yuk and nuts. So indoor activity will include painting my baseboards white and looking for someone with a mitre saw to cut them and brad nail them on. Sure am sick of renovation stuff. Can't find anything anymore in my house. Think I'll just chill out on the couch with a good book and forget it all until spring arrives here in the frozen north. Hey maybe I'll light a fire and toast marshmellows this evening after the hockey game. Hey, the grandson scored a goal last night, yipee and Norfolk beat Portand 4-3.

I am pretty sure there is no place to fly, out of Corsica unless we use a helicopter. As I understand it camping in public parks is a no no in France as well.n As well I suppose Antonio's does not exist unless I got really luck and how do you spell Eiffel?

Pardon me I had to make something up. Actually the Colesium is too. If I would bother to look either of them up or spell them right. Anything else. Is the Champs-Elysee actually have stores in it?

Competing in the annual "Spring Break Games".

It is an amateur contest held each year. I plan on taking home the gold medal. The games are kind of a version of "Hot Potato" involving the passing of devil spawn.

The water polo team scheduled a match during spring break, so I'll be photographing that. Otherwise, since the most time-consuming part of my business is centered around the local high school, I actually will get a bit of a spring break. It'll be nice to have before my three spring sports start to keep me busy.

We are flying to Paris and taking a canal and motorbike ride down the countryside and sleeping at Montpelier. The next morning we are having brunch in the Riviera and then we will yacht down the mediterranean to Ibiza and spend the night there listening to the soundscape competition on the west beach. The next day we are going to sail to Corsica and look at some relics. Then we are flying up to Switzerland to ski for a day and have a night in the Alps sipping Swiss chocloate and Vodka.
The next morning we are flying down to Italy to go gondoling and take a quick tour of some more relics and the parthenon and the Colesium, then we are going to jetski until the sunsets and have wine on the bay at Antonio's. The next day we are flying up to Paris to a fashion show and some groovy underground bar tunes Old Orleans style music while the city lights flare up in the early morning and dance under the stars to the glory of existence and camp in the field near the Eiffle Tower. The next day we are going shopping at the Champs-Elysee and getting some fabulous new things to show everyone.

The next morning I am going to wake up and go to work like the rest of the people on earth and make sure I hit all the nails in straight and my boss is going to ask where I have been for a week.and I am going to say...

. . . and this is something of a centric question. What'll the non-students get to say? Oh well, guess it is a weekend.

Well, right now I'm in DC doing a Business School international project. Then I get to rest for three days while my wife is working, then we're probably going to Herman MO for a couple days to chill out together.
