Cold and Spicy

Well... it seems that every class, this now being my 3rd to be involved with, has their lingo, inside jokes, words that get said WAY too much. It was once "piggyback" which seems to rear its ugly head on an annual basis, consistently causing me to wince and throw up in my mouth a little bit, which is a good segue to this year...

It seems that the word "spicy" has taken on a special meaning this year, also potentially leading to unwanted bodily functions. From my personal relations with the owner of a local Asian restaurant (take it as you will) to a possible theme for the upcoming anthology... as long as everyone agrees (good luck with that), "spicy" is the first word to penetrate our daily vernacular. I am just glad that I can provide a muse (or a victim) for the class to get ammo from. I'm sure others, people and words, will soon get the chance.

Anyways, the 2nd day has ended. Nancy gave me reason to believe that her storytelling would put me to sleep (in the best way possible). Beautiful, comforting, and compelling. Thanks for sharing with us all. As for Jackie, I know her all too well and saw the voice, humor, and imaginative storytelling coming from miles away. She is living proof that truth is always funnier than fiction. Keep writing Jackie, many need your voice. And both of you need to podcast. Your voice behind your words are what make them yours. Others deserve the experience of hearing it.

Thank you all for making over 6 hours a day in a cold basement room during my 2 months off something I would never consider missing.

I'm blissfully ignorant of y'all's spicy conversations -- but I sure enjoyed meeting and re-meeting everyone today -- any chance you got a podcaster?

We already have a list of "Podcast Nominations" posted on the wall... so I doubt it will be a problem.

Well, "Spicy" certainly sounds interesting, but I've still got a soft spot in my heart for "Burnt Sienna".
