I think I've finally decided to catch up with S4 Mad Men. This is basically just a forewarning to expect the flood of "DON FUCKING DRAAAAAAPER!!!!!!!!"s to return. (And through some grand cosmic irony, his current paramour is named Bethany ahahahaaaahaaaaaa WHY NO YOU ARE TAINTING MY NAME.)

ETA: Oh, but I finally finished Sungkyunkwan Scandal (I put off the last episode for over a week because I just didn't want it to enddddd, b'awww) and THIS SHOW IS SO GOSH DARNED PERFECT. Most of my quibbles just have to do with wishing that it was longer so certain storylines could have gotten more resolution, but overall EEEEEE AMAZING EEEEEEEE. :D :D :D

ETA2: PETEPETEPETEPETE how I have missed that little bitch. (But, omg, so glad -- in so many ways -- that I am not watching this show along with fandom.)

ETA3: Okay, so certain aspects of my work life have been kind of crap lately, but today was nice and I feel the need to record that for Future Me to look upon the next time I have a moment of COMPLETELY DESPAIRING OF EVERY CHILD EVER, AUUUGGGGGHHHHH. Anyway. In my elementary class, we were finishing up a story where the two leads get paired off by the end, and the closing lines are an exchange of "I love you"s. The kids all squabbled over who would have to read that page, because -- "No, Teacher! NO! NO!!! Ew! I can't read!" Bahaaaaaaha they were all so embarrassed and scandalized, it was beautiful. ("Dirty! Very dirty!" one of my students declared.) Then I had them brainstorm ideas for what might happen after the story ends, and every single one somehow ends with a killer/killing/everyone dies. I asked them to come up with at least one happy ending, so somebody suggested that maybe they got married and had one hundred babies. Umm...? Probably not happy for her uterus, but close enough -- and then of course somebody chimed in with, "And then, they are die!" OMG, I FINALLY UNDERSTAND KDRAMAS NOW. Expressions of love = bad, lots of dead bodies = good. Right. And then because it was Pepero Day, I got some boxes of candy from a couple of my middle schools boys and, ahahaha, they were so hilariously awkward and embarrassed about it, like it physically pained them to do something sweet for me (and I'm guessing that most of them only did it because their moms made them). Also, Tuesday, I got the best excuse ever for a missing homework assignment: "I AM DO! But... my book ran away."

They don't like happily ever after? D : Otherwise, though, your students are hilarious and adorable. At least this time ; )

Haha, seriously -- today started with Horrible Problem Troll Child walking into class and saying, "Why are you looking at me? I don't want to see your face!" TRUST ME, KID, IT'S MUTUAL. (Actually, he was loads better today, but still. Uuuuuggggghhhhh UGGGHHHHHH.) So, yes, this is why I feel the need to diligently record every time kids make me feel warm and fuzzy and hopeful for the future, instead of old and crotchety and get-off-my-lawn-ish. :P
