Couple of Things from Today

:: DAMNED KIDS::
 
First, this morning in Kindergarten we started a new unit, gleefully entitled "My Toys". FUN! No. Of course not. Because it is school. And just because it is a unit on "your toys", kids… don’t think you aren’t going to have to memorize shite and do spelling tests about it and stuff. And, of course, learn weird-ass new vocabulary associated with your wonderful toys. Weird-ass vocabulary that they expect my wee six-year-olds to learn like "palette". But here’s what’s even stranger… Jenny knew what it was. HOW DOES SHE KNOW WHAT PALETTE MEANS?? I’m not even sure I’m spelling it right. She amazed me this morning. Earned herself a sweet high-five.
 
Both my M-W-F 2:30 class and T-Th 2:30 class drive me nuts. The only thing that the T-Th class has going for them is that I only see them twice a week, and they are followed by my most kick-ass class. In M-W-F we’ve gotten a new kid (I say "we’ve" because Woody and I share classes. If I teach them M-W-F, he teaches them T-Th, and vice versa.) named Brian. We’ve nicknamed him "Hannibal". I swear this kid is a psychopath in the making. Woody does a nice impression of him – the little weirdo (Brian, not Woody) can’t sit still or keep quiet. And you should have seen the way he moved his head while reading his presentation. Yowza. I’m a wee bit frightened of this kid.
 
One of my "good" (it is all relative at 2:30, folks) kids in this class, Jenny, brought in a new pencil case with Babs Bunny on it. It has a great Konglish poem on it:
 
My love loves me and all the wonders
i see a rainbowshines in my window
 
Thanks, jerks. This is why I can’t teach grammar to these little fuckers. (This, and the fact that I’m not sure what a preposition is…)
 
 
::JODI NEEDS::
 
First, I have to precede this part by saying this: I hate to give Brendan credit for anything cool. But this is cool, and he is *sigh* the one who told me about it. So, thanks Brendan.
 
What you do is type your name and "needs" into Google, like this: "Jodi needs". And then Google tells you what you need. Here’s the first 10 for me…
 
1. Jodi needs deliverance from lust, unforgiveness and the mental attacks…
 
2. Jodi needs someone experienced to work with her, she is slow to trust…
 
3. Jodi needs to excuse herself from the table and leave through the nearest exit…
 
4. Jodi needs to focus on men somewhere between being married and having never been married…
 
5. Jodi needs a ticket to ride…
 
6. Poor precious Jodi needs a man…
 
7. Jodi needs a therapist much more than she needs a coach…
 
8. Jodi needs sleep…
 
9. Jodi needs to understand that it isn’t "all or nothing"…
 
10. Jodi needs to relinquish all control…
 
HOW DOES GOOGLE KNOW ME SO WELL??? EERIE…
