Derby City

I'm down in Louisville for a week grading AP U.S. History tests. There are over a thousand readers here to nerd up a perfectly nice town. The days are arduous but the swag is sweet.

I'm not allowed to take pictures of our work area, so here's a photo from the convention center's bathroom:

Def Leppard watches you pee!

I'm staying at the Ho...

...tel Galt House.

This is how Wisconsin Republicans think educators live all the time.

Louisville has ridiculously large street signs.

The city knows how to make metal sexy.

Even the litter is appetizing.

One of 875 bridges in Louisville that crosses the Ohio River.

I jogged across it last night. It was an amazing run.

Towanda needs a bridge like this to span the creek that runs through town.

Don't question the amount of Yum here.

Well, I wasn't going to but now I really really want to.

Duck, duck, sewage water.

Your mom's the Belle of Louisville.

Freakin' physics, how does it work???

Word on the street is that I'll be meeting up with Betsy and her boyfriend for dinner tomorrow night. I can't wait to try Louisville's finest McNuggets. I'm sure they will be Yum!

This is betsy and I can't figure out how to log in on my mobile device but this blog is awesome. You made our metal look so good. P.s. don't mention the amount of bridges to the locals. It's quite a controversy.

Hey Sally, we North Carolina Republicans think that the pictures that you are showing is the way North Carolina teachers live and the new budget has been designed to rein in some of their extravagance by taking away some of their perks.

Did you have to buy that Back Pack and Water Bottle? Have you seen Rick Patino, I understand that he can show some people a grand time in Louisville. Have you seen a Louisville cardinal?

Is the KFC Yum Center the home arena for the University of Louisville Cardinals? I haven't heard that Louisville has an NBA or NHL team, so it might just be.

I believe it is for the Louisville Cardinals.
