Big Movie Fail

Who would have thought that a movie titled "Shaolin vs. Evil Dead" could be so full of fail. I wanted zombie kung-fu. I'm getting Daoist teen angst. It's teh suck.

OK there were some vampires toward the end. Aoombie kung-fu vampires would be cool except their main attack was the bunny hop. It was still teh suck.

Does anyone have any experience with the Berkely East Bay Humane Society? I am considering volunteering there as a cat cuddler this summer. If it's Berkely I would assume that there is enough public oversight to make sure it runs well. I volunteered for S.F. Animal Care and Control as a dog walker and really liked it.

Right now Im in the English room (supose) to be watching two girls as they play on Myspace. i would rather gouge my eyes out then correct another paper. For those of you who know where I work, feel fre to come and kill me now. Please?

Wacky Teaching Stories

#1 We got a new pet hamster yesterday. A cute, baby, fuzzy hamster. I always let the kids vote on names for the pets. The run-off vote came down to either Truffles or...Medea. Let's just hope the little bugger never gets a chance to reproduce.

#2 One of my students wasw very loudly singing the "bow-chika-bow-wow" song in class. I was concerned, to say the least about what he had been watching. I kept him back from art and we had the following conversation.
Me: So, where did you hear that song?
Him: Well, there's this video I found on the internet...
Me: (in my head) OMG! He's been watching the pr0n on teh internets. I'm going to have to tell his father!
Him: Made by the people who did Halo.
Me: Red vs. Blue!?!? Oh, thank god!

Turns out he's an even bigger fan of the series then I am. I walked him to art and we had one of the best student/teacher bonding moments evar!

We had our first field trip today and nobody got kidnapped or dead! So woohoo! Also, we had a great staff meeting in which I got to vent some about the part time RSP teacher from the very depths of hell. But best of all, afterwards I was chatting with some of the other teachers and we got to talking about the odd hair colors and clothes some of our students have. I mentioned I wished I could wear some of my odder clothes. I daid I always wanted blue highlights in my hair, but because I'm a teacher I can't. The others looked my dead in the eye and asked "why not"?

time to call Angelique and make an appointment!

Best Rube Goldberg Contraption Ever

Keep in mind that this was done in 100% real time. It took 606 takes, 6 million dollars and 3 months to get that last perfect take.

It has sound and you really need to hear it as well to appreciate it.

Party Invites!

So, last week I turned thirty but didn't have the opportunity to really celebrate. However, if your Saturday night is free come by Caer Leonis around 8 p.m. and wish me a happy new decade! I'm not looking for a big rocking party, just the wonderful company of all my friends. If you can make it leave a comment here.
