my monkied brain

dear gods, it's two days in a row

i won't tell if you don't.

i had the most scrumptious breakfast with two friends - out of course, because LA does nothing great if not it's breakfast type things - of salmon-benedict,(poached eggs, house cured salmon & wilted frisee on a shredded potato pancake with hollandaise) at this place called Square One.  The memory of the food is making me hungry again.

And as far as I can determine I'm set up to get to school tomorrow and do my official TA orientation (yay) and I will probably even be paid on time and everything (another yay), so that's two things starting to get themselves sorted out.  Not that I have a syllabus from the actual prof, but I probably wont' get that until classes start (this according to both him and other friends who have TAed for him).

Sadly, I was commenting to samanthahirr, that I'm one of those "kind of strict but eventually kind of ok" TAs. I used to think I was going to be sorta mother-ly, but I save that for my friends. I'm more the 'expects a lot and wants you to think because I assume you've got a brain' kind of teacher. That's a little frightening, given when I've had those kinds of professors in the past I've had both good and bad experiences with them.

What kind of TAs did you like when you had them? The ones that let you leave early, or the ones who make you talk even when you hated it?

I will admit, I like being able to control mediate a discussion. Really I do ;)

Oh, and apparently I left my cabin light on in my car and drained my battery, so I got to buy a new one of those today too. Awesome. Oh well, at least my car isn't going to die on me tomorrow when I have to get up at the crack of dawn to go to school.

It's so weird that i'm back on my LA schedule where 8 am seems so early, when in Japan I was waking up at 6:30 am without a problem. But the dawn comes around earlier there too, and I think that's part of it. Sun? If you're listening to this? Could you just come up earlier tomorrow for LA just for me? yeah, didn't really think that was going to work, but it can't hurt can it?
