Yes, I’m Still Gonna Blog

I just finished a PowerPoint for a presentation I need to do tomorrow for that big project that everyone / no one knows about. Even on vacay, I can’t go on vacay. It’s just not possible. However, I’ve been listening to some excellent music, drinking some quality beer, and learning and interacting with more people every single day.

With that said, I can’t quit this blogging shit. I’m approaching 250, and I usually write quality posts every day, not just random bulletins, so I found it imperative to just keep it light and simple. Besides, what good is my Google Reader if I can’t share everything I read? Check it out:

Tracy Rosen knows what good teaching is all about. Damian and I, though, have different ideas (it’s funny, honest).

My brother from another mother, Carl Cowan, shows us how Feist counts to 4 with the help of Sesame Street.

Andy Park still amazes me with his photo skills. If you need hot photos like that, feel free to holla at him.

Gotham Schools seems to be a good new resource for teachers to read. Nice and simple. And they like me apparently. Thanks, JD.

A Carnival of Education hosted by my people at A Voice in the Wilderness!

Me on the cover of Essence Magazine? Over Obama? I think I know why I wouldn’t make it on there, but Zack seems to think I deserve it. More power to my man, Zack.

Christina, I’ma tell you what another writer told me: find your voice.

Necole, Necole, anyone who ever says you’re not fair and balanced needs to check this post. (for the fellas … and some of my ladies, too.)

I added a few new cats to my sidebar, mainly Xicano Power, New Millenium Negro, Mike Parent, The Bowery Boys, and The Black Lounge. When you visit them, tell them I said hi. No really. It’s how I roll.

Alright, I’m going to leave you with this:

How is McCain accusing Obama of playing the RACE CARD?! BWWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Mr. McCain to you I say, good night and good luck!

jose, who is excited to mentor at least one more Teaching Fellow this coming year (congrats to those who got in)

McCain is looking for anything to discredit Obama at this point, as if the whole Ludacris thing wasn’t enough (I still bump Luda, btw)

Thanks for addin me to the blogroll

There is just so much good stuff to read and interact with!!

ps – re: sesame street … remember this one?

Missed the Luda deal, but you hafta know that McCain’s implication of Obama playing the race card backfires with lots of white folks. Especially the ones who detest BS. ;)

Go “O!”

Vacay, here I come also! As to voice…have one…just lost the blog voice. But, it’s coming back! Thanks to folks like you who remind me to stay on track.
