My Apologies To Mrs. Hickey


Also to Mr. Doucette and Mr. Russell.

Those were the best teachers I had during my otherwise miserable school years. They deserve a mention, as good and entertaining people, since my piece in today's Boston Herald otherwise makes it sound as though my classrooms were supervised by nothing but ogres and trolls.

Also, I am friends with some teachers - Chris Mauger comes immediately to mind - and if my schooling had been accomplished under the tutelage of such as he, I probably wouldn't be the warped and frustrated individual I am today.

That should cover my ass. Now go read the screed.

Soon, with more better stuff (which phrase proves how much my English classes impressed me...)

Have A Happy Holiday!


Everybody knows there are no holidays in August, right?

Wrong! You just have to be a little creative about it. And I am, in today's Boston Herald. Read my column and find out about a whole bunch of days you can take off (if you don't mind giving your boss a really flimsy excuse.)

Here's a handy link to the article!

Thanks for reading! I'll see you sometime after my celebration of the coronation of King Otto I of Germany in 936, which took place on August 7.

Suldog? Was in der Holle ist ein Suldog?


See? All kinds of reasons to take days off!

Soon, with more better stuff.
