I’ve been feeling very… mysterious lately. (As mysterious as someone who claps their hands when they get *a good poker hand can be.) So much stuff is currently going on and I’ve left you with nothing but Ja Rule to listen to. Partly because I’m too lazy to blog about everything that’s happening (so much typing! And how do I fit the typing in when I’ve got TWO new hobbies? Football AND **Twilight?) and because part of me doesn’t want to jinx it. But mostly because I’m lazy.
Anyway, in the spirit of secrets and all that is mysterious (please …READ MORE
Everyone has them. The movie you must see, the song you must hear, the book you must read, the city you must visit. When I talk about my ‘musts’ I’m almost fanatical, my feelings are so strong on each of them. My list of ‘musts’ don’t necessarily mean they are my favorite. They are just what has stood out, became memorable and left me with something that I think others might find valuable. So, I give you a few of my ‘musts’, and hope that you will tell me a few of yours

I’m going to level with you.
I’m a list person. Writing down everything I need, want or should do brings me the peace of mind that I can’t get with vodka shots with beer chasers yoga. However, when the to-do list gets insanely long I start adding things that I’ve already done. Just so I can check them off. Because crossing off things on my to-do list rates right up there with licorice and Don Cheadle on my list of things I love.
Sometimes, I completely forget the point of a to-do list and just write a list of everything …READ MORE
I’ve been blogging a lot lately and was going to spend today eating popsicles and writing tweets declaring my love for the book “Then we Came to the End” by Joshua Ferris (in a word- genius), but I’m feeling ranty so you get another post. Hurrah!
pisses me off. A lot. If you haven’t been following along, this is the new cover of The New Yorker magazine. It’s Obama dressed up like a Muslim, Michelle is a terrorist, there’s a burning American flag in the fireplace and a picture of Bin Laden looks on as the mighty couple …READ MORE
Ten Things I’ve Done Since The School Year Has Ended & I’ve Become An Unemployed Rockstar
(aka A Brief Review of the last week which has prompted me to become a dancing fool- reminiscent of my tender youth, complete with a renewed appreciation for embarrassing drinks- such as the monkey’s lunch)
1. Marveled at how kind you all are. The comments and emails from my this post have blown me away. It was a horrible day and I wrote without honestly expecting the feedback I got, but each comment, email, phone call really made a difference. I may …READ MORE
This is my last BUSY week, school is done this Friday and then I’m sure I will be blogging 21.8 times a day out of boredom until I find a summer job that feeds my soul pays my bills. Instead of trying to cram in blog posts, I’ve been really focusing on planning great lessons for my last week. As a class we’ve been having a tremendous amount of fun, but I’m not looking forward to the last day of school. One of my favourite students- Taylor, asked me if it would be okay if he went to the bathroom …READ MORE
I’ve seen about 900 gazillion different versions of photo memes going around. Because I’m lazy a trailblazer, I decided to write a post about my life and include as many silly photos of people I don’t know as possible. Because what’s creepier than putting pictures of children you don’t know on your blog? Absolutely nothing.
I get up around…
I’m a teacher, so many people suspect I walk each day into a roomful of children who look like this:
Which would be fantastic, but it’s entirely inaccurate. I have a few who look like this:
And one …READ MORE
Do you ever have one of those weeks where your hands move instinctively to your head just to make sure that your brain is still attached? And you wake up counting the hours until you can get back into your bed? And your best daydreams involve singing Oasis in your bathtub with just a bottle of gin for company? Yeah. That’s this week.
When life gets full, my brain shuts down. One of the first things to go is any ability to write anything remotely entertaining. That, and sometimes I forget to put pants on. So here’s a scattered list …READ MORE

The trilogy I’ve titled ‘everything you didn’t realize you needed to know about me’ ends with this one. The first part is here and the second part is here. The original came from Brookem and is found here.
I Never… push snooze, order a plain Coke (I’ve never had one without some sort of alcohol mixed in it…), watch CNN without getting overly panicked, pass up a shoe sale, do not know where north is (it’s this weird thing, I ALWAYS know where north is. It’s like my body is a finely tuned compass. Wow. That’s like a title for …READ MORE
