Yes, Women Objectify Too.

Hold on a minute...I just uploaded the picture and need a minute to collect myself. This man should really be illegal. Ok, ready.

After school last week, I was perusing the blog subscriptions and came to I'm slightly addicted to the Twilight phenomenon, duh. I stopped dead in my tracks when this particular picture of Kellan Lutz, aka Emmett, appeared on my screen. Oh where oh where have you been, Mr. Lutz?! I'm embarrassed to admit that I enlarged the photo on my computer and continued to gawk at it for a while. I didn't realize that a male student had walked into the room asking for help on an assignment until he tapped me on the shoulder. I turned around. He gave me a high five and said, "Giiiiiirl, looks like someone needs to go to church and PRAY! Damn!" He giggled and sauntered out of the room.

I'm over the embarrassment and ready to take another gander.

An 80s Dating Montage. Seriously!

I don't even have comment to post about this yet. I'm still laughing too hard. This is obviously a video dating service from the 80s. However, did these people really actually exist? This is simply...FANTASTIC!

Down and Out? I Know The Cure.

We all get to feeling sad and pathetic from time to time-like the world is trying to keep a sister down. I have recently stumbled upon the cure to this loneliness and self destruction....

It will cure everything! I promise. If you don't find yourself laughing at the audacity and sheer bizarreness of some of our fellow Americans, you might be dead or someone with which I can't relate. It is a daily reminder of just how awesome you are compared to the loons found in those pictures! It is sheer comic relief. Enjoy perusing the pictures of whack-jobs!

Question of the Day

Rep. Joe Wilson, South Carolina

How do we teach our children to respect not only the office of the President, but also one another if disrespectful behavior is being modeled in Congress?

I Don't Want To Coach Football. I Just Want To Dance!

I was perusing twitter a while ago when I came across Coach Stew's most recent post and it sent me into a fit of laughter. The mental image that came while reading the post was almost too much for me to handle.

Twitter Post: CoachStewart Driving in this morning at 6:30 a.m., I was listening to "Halo" by Beyonce ... I absolutely love her!!!!

Mental Image: StewBear in the locker room shaking his Beyonce Booty singing, "All the honeys who making money, throw your hands up at me!"

Or adapting the chorus; Can't you just hear the Defensive line singing:

Stew, I didn't know you could get down like that!
Coach, how your playas get down like that?
Stew, I didn't know you could get down like that!
Coach, how your playas get down like that?

Enjoy your hump day, folks!

Education or Endangerment? Seriously?!

I'm shocked and amazed that there are individuals out there that truly believe that the President is going to attempt to brain wash our students today. I wonder how many of these individuals have read the pre-published speech prior to making their ridiculous judgement? I have many an idea as to what the real problem with some individuals might be. Not everyone has moved towards the 21st Century.

I find it unfortunate that some individuals wouldn't want children to hear a message directed to our future about personal responsibility and how they play a huge role in the state of our nation. Then again, it is a personal freedom to not listen and have a personal opinion no matter how ludicrous it may seem to me and others. With that said, it is distasteful that the office of the President is not always respected regardless of personal party preference.

I look forward to the dialog that will hopefully take place afterward.

Demetri the Stud Email

I recently received the following email, and almost shot liquid out of my nose when I began listening to it. Though I was laughing at Uber Demetri Douche Bag, I couldn't help but to feel an immense amount of disgust at the sheer audacity of such an ego maniac. It is so unfortunate for those of us who are single women in this world that men like him exist. However, for those of us with an evil yet playful spirit who enjoy laughing at other people's misfortunes, it is Divine. This post is for you...

Here is the background story that needs to be read prior to listening to the audio.

The story is this: a girl was out with friends having drinks on King St (in Toronto). This guy (Al (we changed his name to Dimitri to protect his identity)) approaches her and won't leave her alone -saying how cute she is. She finally gives in and hands the guy her business card to get rid of him.

The attached is an MP3 file of not one, but TWO voicemails this guy left. This goes down in the history books - especially the second voice mail. After hearing them you can clearly see why she didn't call him back - instead she called in to the Z103.5 morning show & had them play this on the air.

Classroom Clucking

Everyone knows it is not considered appropriate to eavesdrop. With that said, it doesn't mean that it doesn't happen. At times, eavesdropping is a valuable tool. At other times, it is a vicious weapon. When I am at work, I try, and I mean TRY very hard, to NOT eavesdrop on the students. There is some information out there that I would prefer to NEVER know about. Most of this information happens to be hot topics for most adolescents and teenagers.

The only major problem with this practice is that kids are loud! They are noisy. They have no interest in considering their environment and who and what is around them. They will talk about anything, anywhere. I have to remind them, often, that I am, indeed, still in the room; just because they aren't talking directly with me, doesn't mean that I can't hear their conversations.

I was walking through the hall on the way to the office when today's overheard hallway conversation occurred. It gave me a chuckle. I laughed not because of a child's ailment, but rather how the student was able to show mastery of a learned Mathematics skill. It was a whole new type of assessment of a learned skill.

Student 1: "Hey, ######, did you see ******'s four nipples today in the locker room? Yeah, you heard me, he has four."

Student 2: "Four! No way, dude! Where are they?"

Student 1: "Two where they should be, and two more about 6 inches away. If you drew vertical or horizontal lines through them, they would be parallel. Either way both sides of his body are symmetrical."

Student: 2: "Parallel and symmetrical?"

Student 1: "Yeah, I learned about those words in Geometry class."
