The story behind the name:

One evening, at the Old Broadway Grill in Fargo, North Dakota, my brother caught the end of a Mountain Dew commercial. In the commercial, a Mountain Dew drinker was riding a shark in the ocean. My brother exclaimed in surprise, not realizing that it was a commercial. When I told him he declared "All I saw was a guy coming out of the shower with a shark." Of course, he meant water, but the idea of showering with sharks has been with me ever since.

Brain gone

Brain is gone. Or, if it is still there, it's wrapped in layers of cold-medicine-induced cotton.

I CAN NOT believe I'm sick AGAIN!! A little over one month ago, I got sick when I was in Fargo. Now, I'm sick again. And this blog might suck because I'm having a really hard time pulling coherent thoughts together.

I told Darcey about my sickness this morning. She said that I was going through a lot of stress right now (new job, new house, ect...) and that it was no wonder I was getting sick. I guess that's probably true. But I don't think it helps that most of my students have been sick at one point or another during the past four weeks.

So, here I sit. I'm at my desk drinking a Toffee Nut Latte, trying to drum up any productive juices that might still be within me somewhere, but failing miserably. I really want to get these three speeches graded before I leave the office today at noon. Perhaps I shall find some motivation as the caffeine from my latte kicks in. I hope so. Anyway, I think I will end this torturous blog now.

  1. That latte is all you get! Don't you dare sneak one in tomorrow morning when I'm not there to harass you.
