Tomorrow, on total last-minute impulse, I'm flying to Austin, Texas to hang out with a good friend of mine for Memorial Day weekend.
My question is, tomorrow night I want to have a good dinner of authentic texas ribs and chili, with a side of Lone Star beer. Anyone in the Texas area have a recommendation for a non-yuppie place where I can make this happen. The more WT the better, IMO :).
I am a first year elementary school teacher, and I am trying to put together something for my students on their last day. It got me thinking about what we actually remember and retain from school. (I'm still going to do it, whether or not they remember it.)
What was your best teacher-related elementary school experience? What was your worst?
1) This is the first time I have ever signed a lease for an apartment. My lease is ending in early July and I am interested in extending it. Is now the right time to contact my agent? I have been trying contacting my agent but still unable to reach him. And while I find plenty of information in contract but terminating the lease, there is nothing on extending one.
2) I have to write an arts grant for one of my assignments. While I find many tips on how to write an arts grant online (through Google and my tutor links), I am more interested in knowing how to actually write one. Does anybody have any idea where I can find a sample for reference on the structure and language used in writing an arts grant? I also manage to find templates for grants and proposal but nothing tailored for the arts unfortunately.
3) I am doing a horror animation for a graduation project. My friend is writing a score for me and I am wondering if anybody have any recommendations for good horror music. I tried doing a search on Google and kazaa but I am not really looking for rock/metal/grunge or cheesy halloween ecards type of music but something more moody/atmospheric and well thought out. (ok, i know I am vague) My friend is classically trained and majoring in sound and she has accessed to a good music editing program so I hope to use make use of that.
what are some things that you wish you would've remebered to bring with you to college? (i don't mean things like a toothbrush or hairbrush, but little things like bandaids or envelopes & stamps that you could easily forget)
I have a question about adages.. I heard the saying "Beer before liquor, never been sicker; Liquor before beer, you're in the clear." My boyfriend heard "Beer on whiskey, mighty risky; Whiskey on beer, never fear."
So which is right? Is it better to have beer first then liquor, or liquor then beer?
