I saw a call for short stories for STARbooks Press and thought "Hey, I don't have anything better to do, necessarily." Since it's a holiday anthology, I did a bit of research and learned about der Belsnickel, which is like St. Nicholas's antithesis. He metes out the punishment for naughty boys and girls. So I decided he should mete out some "punishment" for "naughty" grown-ups too. I know, I'm so clever. But I finished it last night and I heard back from the editor this morning--he likes it. Woo!

Today I've had my shake for a late breakfast. I think I'm going to have some leftover chicken and some eggs for a late lunch, before I go to work. I'm actually holding class in a coffee shop today. Which only means I'm placing myself in temptation's way, but I can't just isolate myself from places where temptation exists!

Anyway, I'm doing this as part of an experiment. I hope it doesn't fail. I want to take us outside the classroom to see if that promotes a more casual conversation style. I think they're too intimidated to speak in class. Like they're so caught up in WHAT IT ALL MEANS, they don't just want to chat about the characters and the plot and things they found interesting.
