Subject: RE: Thinking about leaving Guam. Nah, bought a hou
From: Naemanson
Date: 11 May 08 - 02:56 AM

I'm back on line! The computer's fixed, we've finished moving into the new house, and we finally got the cable connected. We are in business again.

We really like this house. It's comfortable. The yard is large and that is rare in Guam. We are near the end of a dead end road, just beyond the end of the pavement. There is only one farmer who lives farther down from us. So it is quiet here.

There was a little trouble with the neighbor's dogs barking at us and annoying the cats but my slingshot soon ended that. Now the cats come and go as they please. The dogs spend their time on the other side of the houses. Neko finds endless pleasure in bringing lizards, geckos, and grasshoppers into the house so she can slowly murder them in air conditioned comfort. Wakana refuses to close the door firmly so the cats have found they only need to push on it and it opens for them. Sigh.

Neko is a very strange cat. She talks as she walks. She isn't asking for anything. She doesn't want to be held. There is no shortage of food in her life. She just meows continually... all night long... as she walks on us... when we're trying to sleep. I have thought of inviting the dogs back over for a game of tag with her. Neko doesn't want to sit with us on the couch, won't let us hold her for any length of time, and doesn't do any of the other things a cat likes to do with people. She loves to play with me but she plays too rough for me to risk my flesh and blood. I use a stick.

The Mama on the other hand follows Wakana around like a puppy. She goes out and comes in several times in the morning as we prepare for work but when we leave she insists on being outside for the day. She disappears into the brush and only comes out after the sun has set.

Neko runs in a panic to the door when she sees us getting ready to lock it. Being stuck outside for the day rates very low on her list of priorities.

I told Wakana that the cats treat her like a god. I don't rate with them. The best I can hope for is for them to see me as some kind of emergency backup god. I provide food when she isn't home and I open the doors for them. Other than that I am just in the way.

Hey, Brett, school should be over in a few weeks.

Have you and Wakana given any thought to relaxing?

Not a bad concept after a major move, and major job shifts.

We do need some advance warning if you're planning to revisit Maine. The cottage is availabe in any month except August.

Kat Logan is celebrating her 50th birthday this weekend with a song party, and commemorating her engagement to a very mellow guitar/banjo player.

Cheerily.

She has always gone to visit my siblings when THEY bought new houses... Grumble. grumble, gripe, gripe.

We've been jerked around a lot in the last few weeks. It turns out the hold up was by the appraiser who took two weeks to look at the house and then never uploaded the appraisal to the VA so they could give the bank the thumbs up. Now we are running out of time and hope to close on the house tomorrow or Saturday. We are getting antsy. I'd like to get things moving if you'll pardon the pun.

Today I started showing my kids the stage play Sweeney Todd. They all agitated for the movie starring Johnny Dep but I squashed that. The purpose for watching the play is to get some experience with a big performance on a live stage. They don't need to see another movie.

Of course the play is a little rough. Keep in mind they cut an hour out of it, reduced the sexual side of it to a washed out depiction of a rape and tossed out all the bad language. The poor beggar woman in the movie just hangs around and has little to contribute. In the play she is always wandering on stage and quite often solicits the men in quite vulgar fashion. ("How'd ya like to split me muff, dear?") Consequently I required the kids to provide a permission slip from their parents. Those who didn't bring it in had to spend the class in the library. There was a frantic rush at the beginning of class with kids phoning parents to ask to have the slip or a note faxed in to the school.

They weren't all that hot to actually watch the play. After all, no Johnny Dep. However, the end of class caught them by surprise and they groaned about having to turn it off. They were getting into it. We had fun.

We got into a great discussion today. One of the kids quoted the time worn comment, "Why should we study this, I'll never use it."

Brett: What are you going to be doing in 10 years?

Kid: I want to be a radiologist.

That doesn't answer my question. What are you going to be doing in 10 years?

Kid: I don't know.

Brett: Then how do you know which subject you learn here will help you then?

Kid: Oh.

Brett: I use geometry and algebra all the time in my carpentry work.

Kid: I'm not going to be a carpenter.

Brett: How do you know that? You just told me that you don't know what you'll be doing in ten years. Suppose a carpentry job is all that's available?

At that point the kid conceded that maybe she might need some of this stuff after all.

Another conversation from today.

Kid: College is expensive.

Brett: There are ways to reduce the expense.

Kid: How?

Brett: You start with good grades.

Kid: Ugh!

Sigh, these kids have no interest. They are smart kids but they cannot be prodded into doing the work.

When we talked of myth and legend and the differences between them I had them think about the stories they grew up with in Guam. There are a number of stories that I call the Chief Stories, tales of great feats by various of the old chiefs of Guam. There is the tale of the first mermaid, Serena. There is the tale of the two lovers who leaped to their deaths rather than be separated.

We discussed these and a few others and tried to categorize them into either myth or legend. It was a fun class.

As for performance, well, let's just say I am going to have my hands full getting the kids to read the plays let alone memorize anything.

Good one, Charley!

Brett, you should hop over onto the Accountability - Heave Ho thread. You've got us all beat, I think, in clearing out clutter! I actually threw two books away this past week. First time I think I've ever done that. Felt awful for a few minutes. I also ripped out some colour plates and illustrations from a couple of old ones nobody wanted. I am going to frame them for my grandson's bedroom.

Would the kids be interested in putting on their own production? What about West Side Story? Would they be able to relate to that one better do you think? What tales do they know of in their culture that might be like King Arthur, in myth etc, I mean, that they could track down through the generations? just some thoughts...you've probably already had the same ones.:-)

I spent the weekend putting things into boxes. I filled seven boxes with books to donate to the Notre Dame library. The arrival overwhelmed the librarian. I warned her that there were more on the way.

And... (I hope you are sitting down) I threw away a bunch of books too!

Today I ordered a dumpster for the house. They'll deliver it tomorrow. I have three bags of trash in my office. And you should not make the mistake to think they are trash bags.

You see, the local hardware store made a mistake. They either ordered, or had sent to them by mistake, a bunch of big paper bags to use for leaf disposal. Well, in Guam we do not have to worry about leaf disposal so they were selling them at $1.00 per bundle, 3 bags in a bundle. I bought 3 bundles. These things are huge, they stand on their own, and they are easy to move.

At school we were studying the legend of King Arthur. To cap it off we watched the latest movie about him so I have now seen that movie four times in the last two weeks. I think I've had enough of it.

I set a challenge for the kids. I told them to assume the movies was a 100% accurate picture of where Arthur came from. With that as the starting place I wanted them to imagine how that story became the legend we know today. Well, I thought it was a great assignment. But they didn't. They whined about not knowing the legend, about not being able to understand the assignment, about anything and everything without doing the assignment. Sigh. This generation is doomed.

Well, I guess I better fill some more boxes.

I'm definitely back! It cost $255 and took forever but I have computer back and it is fine. It's better than fine. I had the memory increased and added a second hard drive.

Cats are fine. Wakana is too. We are packing and preparing to move once we close on the house. The next two weeks will be pretty hectic. There is a lot to do.

You should see this place. We are not all that neat anyway but now every room has been reduced to footpaths and there are only two narrow places left on the couch in the living room. We are piling boxes there. The books shelves are emptying and the pile of boxes is growing. Neko, the younger cat, has a great time exploring the changed configuration in the house. Mama, of course, spends her days outdoors and only comes in to eat and sleep in the evening.

At school we are studying drama now. I will be showing them plays on video as well as having them read the required curriculum. They are pretty bored with the whole thing. They can't see how it affects their lives and they want nothing to do with the subject. I think I need a better idea.

One course of action is to explain that there are plenty of boring activities that seem to have no purpose in their futures. That will get me exactly nowhere. At fifteen kids don't care about their future. I need them to look at what they see everyday with a more critical eye.

I'm back. The computer is still not 100% and the hard drive may collapse any minute now but I can use the Internet again.

We've been on our Easter break. We go back to school tomorrow. Ugh! It's our last quarter but in literature we will be studying drama and that should be fun. The book has Antigone and Julius Caesar in it. I'd like to show them some other plays as well but I don't know what the time frame will allow.

I heard something interesting on This American Life today. I was listening to it as a podcast. They had a show titled Testosterone. Part of the show was an interview with a man who had started out as a woman. He described his old self as a bull dyke feminist. Then he started the testosterone treatments and he suddenly realized why all men are jerks. He described all sorts of changes in his behavior and attitudes. It was a very educational show. Check it out.

We aren't any closer to getting into our new house. The VA needed my old case files because they couldn't confirm my qualifications. Of course a lot of my paperwork was burned in the fire but I managed to find my purchase documents for the house in Bath (Maine). The bank forwarded them to the VA and now we wait... and pack. The bank suggested we get a thirty day extension on our agreement with the sellers.

While driving home today I had a new experience. Just before I reached the ACE hardware store my driver's side rear tire blew out with a loud BANG! That was exciting. I pulled into the parking lot and changed the tire but the old one is shredded. I've had plenty of flats but never a blowout.

I'm hungry. It's 2:22 PM here and I haven't eaten since breakfast. Enjoy!

My wife and I worked for Liberal Academy. It is a real school but not very good (since we left). They only teach Japanese and English as a Second Language.
