In case you're new to SNYDERMANIA, you can get your copy of Spirit Guide Bar, The Eight Fingered Criminal's Son, and the Stories from the Spirit Guide Bar CD on Amazon.com.
Spirit Guide Bar is a is a different kind of Christmas story.
Gotta admitted it, sales have really tapered off. I'm thinking of heading out to the local mall to do some selling out of the trunk of my car this week.
"Pssst. Hey pal, wanna buy a book?"
I guess I really need to finish that last chapter of my new book.
So I'm five weeks into my return to the teaching biz. It's been tough taking over a class that was taught by at least five different people, but there has been progress. Most of the students can now raise their hands to speak and refrain from tacking classmates while entering the room. I'm now working on getting them to stop banging their pencils on their desks while I'm talking. It's been at least a decade since I last taught junior high and I completely forgot about the psychotic pencil banging phenomenon. Some of the little squirts obviously do it to see if they can make make scream at them until turn red, and fall to the ground gasping for air. Others, and these are the ones that baffle me, seem to pound their pencils on their desks completely unaware that they are making a commotion. I knew I has accepting a great challenge when I signed on. Surely, I'll figure something out.
Sound proof pencils?
I do like my students and it is pretty cool to have a two week break after five weeks on the job.
Maybe I'll take another crack at that last chapter.
