Over on her blog, Madeline Robbins writes about her first memory, My Mother Went Out for Lemons. Go read it; it's a great story.
It also prompts me to write about my first memory -- or, well, my first memory that's a coherent story.

I've got a new story live at The Sockdolager today.
It's one I'm very fond of -- a time-travel story, sort of.
Go here to read it: Down The Twisting Alleyways.

Politically correct, invented as an in-joke by Leftists for those of us who were taking things a bit far (out-Veganing the Vegans, being more holy about using the correct pronouns than even the most Tumblr of the Tumblrites), was taken up by the Far-Right as an excuse to be as rude as they liked, under the guise of not being (I guess) a Leftist.

For those of you who have not yet seen Zootopia, I cannot recommend it highly enough.
I was not that excited about seeing it, frankly -- a Disney movie about a bunny who wants to be a cop? Whatevs. I went mostly because the kid wanted to see it so badly, and since my child almost never wants to go see a movie, we'll take her to anything.
Spoilers from here on out:

I am just back from an early evening walk with the little dog.
Our new little dog, Heywood Floyd -- not that new, I suppose; we've had him since July -- is, we have determined, part Jack Russell terrier, and very high energy.
Without at least one long walk a day, he is fraught with unexpended energy, and rushes through the house, rrrrring and flailing and finding toys for everyone to throw him.

Yes, that time.
Annual evaluation time!
I'm trying, y'all. I'm trying. But seriously, what a waste of my life and life-force.
Plus, the language this enterprise requires. Learning goals. Assessments. Multiple literacies. Demonstrated Learning Outcomes. Global perspectives. Kill me now.
It's not bad enough that Drumpf is apparently going to be a serious candidate for our country's highest office -- I have to spend the next week writing this... document.
