Too Much Work Makes Teacher Grumpy

Tomorrow my favorite band, Old97s, are playing in San Francisco for FREE in the DAYLIGHT and I’m not going.

Isn’t this the same band I’ve seen every time they’ve come to the West Coast in the last 10 years?

Isn’t this the same band I saw three times in one week?

In two states?

Isn’t this the band I have a 13-year-old girl obsession with since I was in my 20s?


And I’m not going.

Why you ask?

I’ve got too much work to do.

I’ve got teacher work to do: grading, progress reports, lesson plans, goals for my evaluation and I’ve got TONS of yoga homework to do. I’ve also got a dryer sitting on my porch mocking me.

Poor me.

Sometimes it sucks being a responsible grown up.

That’s really all I wanted to say.

That and I’m hella going to their show in January!

  1. Aaaww Tami – I shouldn’t have mentioned it, you’d be perfectly happy with your homework and your dryer. I’m not going either – mom duties – and I’m obsessed with the band that plays right before the Old 97’s (Okkerville River, they’re friggin awesome!). We’re lame. If you had said you were going I would have dropped everything and carpooled though . . . just to give you something to think about ;)

    P.S. You said Hella (you Californian you).

    Sympathetic hugs,
