What the...English?!? I love pussy

Ok, so I've been saving this gem for awhile, let me give you the details....

I stumbled across these lovely chopstick and spoon sets (pretty much what everyone eats with over here) and laughed hysterically in the store for quite some time, I bought a few sets, and after thinking about it, returned a few days later and bought them out of what was on the shelf.

I can't imagine what the lady working the store thought of me, but they were simply too good to pass up.

I have since since them to a few of my friends in the U.S., but wanted to keep the gifts as a surprise for them, so without further ado - here are the "I love pussy" chopstick sets.

 Showing detail - "I love Pussy; I have a very good time"

So, to those I sent them to - I hope you enjoy them and that they remind you of me you get a good chuckle out of them.

So, until next time....

Active lesson and song with my 3rd graders

Had a commands lesson with my little 3rd grade cuties, we listened to the song and they had to follow the commands (stand up, sit down, turn around) as the song sped up.  If they messed up they were "out".  We played this a few times, and it was a ton of fun.

Just one of the many reasons why 3rd graders (the youngest I teach) are so cute.

Typical conversation with the VP

Just had this conversation with my Vice-Principal at 1 p.m.:

VP: The school is OPEN today.
me: OK?
VP: It's open
me: OK, I know?
VP: Just wanted you to know.
me: oh, you mean NOT-open and tomorrow
VP: Yes, I forgot those words

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime."
