And now we take you to the regularly scheduled Wednesday Night Bullet Post in order that I might find something else to talk about besides sneezing. I can only imagine how weary people have grown with that topic by now. At least the people who had to deal with me on a daily basis.
*Isn't it nice that I'm not sick this week?
*State mandated achievement testing started on Monday and I'd hate to miss all the fun whilst searching for tissues.
*I miss the husky voice, though.
*Except for the part where I called down to main office with a question or something and Mrs. Secretary Who Sits At The Front Desk said stuff about my sexy sickly voice.
*That was disturbing. Especially when she put other people on to listen to me and verify my crazy hot phone voice.
*This makes it particularly difficult to maintain a professional demeanor in the classroom.
*Hand to God, she put one person on the phone to make creepy purring sounds at me!!!
*Interesting Classroom Conversation:
Ms. Sheep (using her pen to indicate a Very Important Detail on a worksheet): And if you look at this example, you will see that...oh! I'm so sorry! I just wrote on you with my pen whilst enthusiastically attempting to education you!
The Future Farmer: I am going to sue you over this.
MS: Go ahead. What exactly do you think you are going to get out of this?
TFF: Seven cents.
MS: Wow. That was fast. Actually, you won't get seven cents. You will get a boatload of credit card bills and a very fat cat. That is it.
TFF: Seriously? I like that fat cat! I'd really get the fat cat? Awesome!! Hey everyone, I get the fat cat!!!
*He should rethink that.
|Fat Cat is currently chewing through the mini blinds|
*It's not really his fault. His brother, the Absurdly Gi-normous Kitty, has been carefully bending the slats on the other side and snapping them off so he can stick his gi-normous head out for a better view.
*What else was he to think? Blinds are clearly there to be slaughtered...
*I forgot a had a big box of honey nut cereal. Then I remembered and now I'm eating a lot of honey nut cereal.
*More honey nut cereal than anyone should ever eat in one sitting.
*I didn't even know I like honey nut cereal.
*Perhaps it is a reaction to the horrors of state mandated achievement testing?
*This year we are doing one test per day instead of lots of tests per day.
*Less testing per day.
*For two long weeks.
*There is no good way to do that much testing.
*Today we got an email reminding us that we still have to do two more fire drills, one evacuation drill and a lockdown drill while the weather is still appropriate for such frolics.
*I think that will make the perfect counterpoint to achievement testing!
*Not really. I'm just trying to make the best of it.
*Amazon Associates link still not working, but I'm not going to let that get in the way of a couple recommendations!
*Actually, it appears that I am. Nothing seems to want to link tonight.
*I swear to you that I've read some stuff! Honest!
*I'm just not linking very well.
*I'll keep playing with it and see if I can make something work for you at some point in the near future.
*I've never been one of the I Hate Blogger club members.
*It's free and it does lots of stuff.
*I do not like Blogger very much tonight.
*Not at the "hate" stage yet, but getting there...
*I got healthy. Why can't Blogger work out its issues with Amazon links?
*Blogger needs more fiber or something.
*This link should work!
*I can't wait to see American Horror Story!
*I can't stay up until 10:00, but that's OK.
*I got a DVR so I could not stay up for The Walking Dead.
*Now I don't have to stay up to watch anything!!!
*I wish I could but I can't even if I am healthy again.
*4:45 comes very early and I need to be at my best if I am not going to be sick for state mandated achievement testing.
There we go. That should cover us. I didn't make the book thing work, but I still consider that a temporary situation. We are going to think of it as delightful bit of suspense rather than a hurdle.
Because that is the way a healthy mindset works.
