I'm Not One to Give Homework. . .

. . . but I need to buy a little time while I take care of some tasks, like watch Fiddler (and file some papers at the same time). Yesterday got a little too crazy--at the last minute I wound up taking my mom to Mass because my dad, who was playing for that Mass, had taken her car after it was discovered the A/C wasn't working in his car as the result of a belt/reel/something problem. (The universe is telling him to stay off the road! Not working!)

Then I drove my parents--Mom driving from the backseat--to Dad's b-day dinner. My brother and SIL came with the younger kids (I think Oldest Nephew was with his dad) so that was fun. I heard all about their bowling adventures from earlier in the day. Middle Nephew (age 4-1/2) is obsessed with numbers so he was all over everyone's scores. Hilarious. And I'm not sure why, but Youngest Nephew (2yo) was quite convinced he knew the burly guy sitting at the far end of the banquette and was practically cuddling up to him. Poor guy was just waiting for his takeout order. Bless his heart for being so nice to my little nephew.

Anyway, some of the library tweeps were sharing this NYT article about a solution to bullying. As someone who was bullied in middle school, I have a lot to say about it, but I need to time to organize my thoughts. But really I'd like to discuss it rather than just give my opinions. So, if you feel inclined, take and read. Comment if you like.

I can't find where I raved about that one on my blog, but YES. That's a great book. I own that one, too.
