Get Back to School!

Happy Monday, y'all!

A bitch would like to remind a St. Louis city folk that today is the first day of the new school year.

Pause…sip coffee…continue.

Not that you’d know that by reading the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s website this morning.

Lawd, have mercy.

A bitch sincerely hopes that this city’s daily newspaper managed to put Back to School on the front page of the print edition…cause they sure as shit don’t have it up on the website at 5am in the morning…

…and that would have been a good time to highlight that shit, instead of the news that Kings of Leon is planning a concert to make-up for the one they walked out on due to the infamous pigeon shit incident.


Anyhoo, today is the first day of the school year for St. Louis city schools…and we’ve got a major problem when it comes to getting students to plant their happy asses in the classroom during the first weeks of school.

So, remind your friends and family…and be extra careful driving to work this morning as youngsters will be at bus stops or walking to bus stops.

What about the cute animal story? I hope they didn't forget that!

Maybe you should be grateful. We had a flood in Ames, IA that led to a boil alert. The Des Moines Register ran an article yesterday under the headline "Ames may drink tap water today", but that was published before the boil order was lifted, as the first sentence of the second paragraph stated. I wondered how many people interpreted the headline to mean "We're allowed to drink the tap water today." First do no harm, right?

Aside about the Kings of Leon incident: my good friend and her new husband are visiting from Spain, and one of the first things they did was attend that concert. Welcome to the USA!

I start grad school in two weeks and I just moved into an AWESOME apartment (tho if I don't get a job the rent will pinch me). I'm so psyched and loving my life right now Shark-fu. Best to all those St. Louis children.
