I cannot brain today.

Some days in the classroom I am unstoppable. Technology failures, student screw ups, you name it, I can roll with it. Today, not so much.

AV equipment did not work...AT ALL. Media people could not solve problem so I could show my powerpoint.

On another day, I could have done it without. I've done it before, I can do it again. But I cannot do it today.

I gave them credit for attending, announced I'd move the test off 1 weekend. Sent them home.

The good news is that now I can show On the Waterfront for the acting chapter, since it's now three weeks of films instead of two. Maybe not a silver lining, but a shimmer of rainbow for a second there.

(For those keeping track the other films I'm showing for the acting unit were Little Miss Sunshine, Wednesday will be Singing in the Rain, and then OtW next week.) Now, it's time to use the unexpected minutes to catch up on paperwork.

Trying to get through the day, one gasp at a time.
