.... Looks like they sold the house next door, so I'm going to be getting new neighbors. At this point, this is neither good nor bad, I like the neighbors I have now but I don't know the new ones so I'll just have to wait and see.
.... I've lost my special STS powers, they took them away. Three years ago when I became an STS they gave me an administrative login for the school I was at. They also, accidentally, gave me the same access to the school I was at right before. I let them know, and for some reason they couldn't figure out how to un-link me from the Jr. High. Then when they linked me to my new school (the one that rhymes with schmeisenhower) I had administrative access to all three schools. Which meant that I could do all kinds of things, including seeing what classes everyone at the schools was teaching, and who was in their classes. Not all that interesting, but it made me feel powerful. Of course it also meant that to get to my own grades I had to login, choose the school, click on 'staff', scroll down to my name, click on it and then click on the class I wanted to do grades and/or attendance for. Yesterday I logged in and it went straight to my classes. No other schools, no list of staff, no extra-human powers. Not bad, since it cuts getting to things down from four clicks to one, but, man, I used to be powerful.
