I remembered this recently. I couldn't find the comic that I first saw so I decided to make my own. It needs work but you get the idea.

Planning Period

Teachers have a lot of work to do and in order to prepare for classes they have what is called planning period. Important, necessary, good. For the people who substitute for them from time to time it is called free time. I have nothing to plan. I could do some work but I am simply not motivated to do so. My favorite are teachers who have 1st or 7th period planning because it means that I get to show up late or leave early. Teaching one class and then having planning is absolutely worthless. Today I am just antsy. Seriously, I walked around the school for a while and stopped in the office to see if there was anything they needed done. I'm like a bored little kid.

In other news I feel that I should report on Mr. Joe. I know that full updates are available on his blog but I would like to note that I'm pretty sure he's jealous of the Xbox. It's funny because he's never shown jealousy for my computer which I spend hours on but there's something about the Xbox. Perhaps he senses how incredibly angry I can become while playing it, I honestly do not know. I do know that every time I play he suddenly becomes needy. Mr. Joe is not a very affectionate dog. He likes a good scratch but rarely begs for it. When I play Xbox he nuzzles his nose under my hands and gets as close to me as possible. It's funny to me.

Also, a couple of notable quotes before I leave:

Me: I don't believe in politics
D: I don't believe in politics either but it keeps happening

Jo: I would live in a communist country if Jesus was in charge
J: Then you're gonna love the Kingdom of God

Good friends

It's so good to be around friends. It really doesn't matter what's going on in my life, if I can be around friends, I'm good to go. To be honest, I'm probably too dependent on other people. I have a hard time being alone and I'm discovering that it has very little to do with boredom. I don't care that I'm bored because I'm alone, I care that I'm alone. I need some sort of community living situation.

I went to College Sunday School at First UMC Montgomery this morning and we discussed the economy and how that pertains to our lives and what we should be doing personally. I have decided that I can fix the economy. It's very simple. We will just declare a year of jubilee, releasing everyone from their debts. It'd be like wiping the slate clean. They used to do this several thousand years ago. I'm bringing it back. Unfortunately no one owes me anything so I can't really release any one's debt. Well, I guess the IRS owes me a return on my taxes. Somehow I don't think calling the IRS to tell them not to worry about it would do any good in helping get this year of jubilee idea off the ground. I am a little convicted about my stuff though. I should get rid of it. I just don't want to. This is the fundamental problem for many Christians. We're supposed to do something but we just don't want to let go.

Blah. I will deal with that soon. It keeps coming up and I can't avoid it.

Oh well. For now, I'm out. May I highly recommend checking out Make a play list, listen to music, but it doesn't download it so you're not stealing. Hooray!

West Wing Love

So using I can now view every episode of the West Wing anytime I want to. Seriously, all I need is the Internet and I have all the joy that is so easily had by viewing The West Wing. Toby having to talk about the panda, CJ and the turkeys, Josh in the fisherman overalls, not to mention all the more serious, life changing scenes. I was talking with a friend about taxes and she said something about how, even though poor people need help, it's not right for hard working people to have to spend more money on taxes. As a response I pulled up Will Bailey's tax explanation to the interns.

My name is Samantha Lewis and I think I'm falling in love with the Internet.

Movie Day

So, substitute teaching is possibly one of the easiest gigs around. Sure you have to put up with the occasional kid who couldn't care less what you say, but all in all, it's awesome. Today I subbed for a teacher who has AP Calculus students and Statistics. Already these kids are generally pretty smart which, in my experience, means that they actually KINDA wanna be at school or at least see the purpose of it, and are generally really well behaved. I can usually get away with being pretty lenient with them because they wont take it and walk all over me.

So, not only was I in there with these awesome kids, it was also movie day! Are you kidding me? I got payed to sit around and watch a movie today. Seriously, that's ridiculous. It was a really good day and as a bonus I got to eat with a few of the youth which was a blessing indeed.

My name is Samantha Lewis and I am happy.

So, it's come to this...

My life is in such a state that I have now started a blog for my dog. I'm not sure what it says about a person that 1) has enough time to write a blog on behalf of their dog and 2) is on a level where they feel they can write something similar to what their dog might be saying.

Mr. Joe's blog can be found at The name of the blog is Bababablog, Blogbabadoo.

"Uh, I'm not sure what my address is..."

So I was filing my taxes today when I was prompted to give my adjusted gross income for 2007. I know that most people keep up with these things as they are important. I, however, do not. I had to call the IRS and ask them. I talked with a very nice lady, we'll call her K, who was happy to help, she just needed to confirm that I was Samantha Lewis. She asked me my social security number and I gladly told her that it was 123-45-6789. Then I gave her my middle initial and then my phone number. Then, she asked for my address. This is what happened"

Me: 117 Camp Lake Stephens Drive
K: Did you have a different one last year?
Me: Oh yeah! It must have been 1884 Hill Hedge
K: Um, no
Me: Oh, 1521 Wellman or 301 Briarcliff?
K: No
Me: OH! 939 W. Outer Drive
K: No
Me: 106 Panama
K: No, not that one either
Me: Can you at least tell me what state it was in?
K: No, I can't release that information.
Me: Yeah, ok. Um, gosh... OH! It must be 1500 East Fairview. I was there a really long time.
K: No, that's not it.
Me: I really just don't know what to tell you. I just named like 15 addresses.

Anyway, I never came up with the address so she had to ask me a bunch of other questions. Also, at the end after she had told me my 2007 AGI, I asked if she would tell me what the address was. She said no.

My name is Samantha Lewis and I've moved a lot recently.
