B-WISER is being lots of fun this year. After the terrific start Sunday night, we've had two really good day of classes. Yesterday was measurement day for Dee and I. Today, we worked with power and work and force and stuff. One of the girls, after playing with film canister canons, said "My brother's gonna be jealous!" And another girl said she was having so much phun in physics. They've been lovely girls, and we've got 2 more days to teach them stuff.
Tuesday night is traditionally the teachers' night off. Half go off to the outlet mall near here and shop 'til they drop. But Dee, Joyce, Carolyn and I opted for toys, appetizers, and a movie. We went to the Toyriffic toy store in Smithville where I spent too much money on lots of cool toys. (Alas, they didn't have Chrononauts, but I told the store owner about the game and she's going to see about getting it for her store. She loves "new" game ideas. Oh, and Amy, you might be interested to know that she knew of the owner of that toystore in Yellow Springs. Hadn't met her, but specialty toy stores are rare enough that folks know of each other.)
Our next task, after spending lots of dough, was going to Applebees for half-priced appetizers and $1 off drinks. I got an amaretto sour (no surprise) and we shared cheese sticks, coconut shrimp, spinach/artichoke dip & nachoes, riblets, and onion chips. Filled us up nicely. And we sat there talking until 15 minutes before the film.
When I read off the offerings to Carolyn the other night, the only two which interested her were Mr. & Mrs. Smith and the Star Wars movie. We decided to go see Mr. & Mrs. Smith. And we really enjoyed it. Mayhem, violence, and lots and lots of laughs. My kind of film. I think dad will like it, too. :-) Plus, Angelina Jolie is nice on the eyes. (And I guess some folks like Brad Pitt, too... His face is funny, however. Though I don't think I'd kick him out of bed for eating crackers.)
Tomorrow is Flight Day - I hope it doesn't rain on us! We really have been blessed with perfect weather these past few days. And I wouldn't mind if it continued for the rest of the week. :-)
