Thanksgiving was interesting. My dad managed to mess up almost everything except for the acorn squash which reminded me of that very first Friday Night Dinner. Remember the feast we had then? I think that's when I nearly started a fire with that nifty slicer/dicer/shredder that I absolutely had to have. Ah, memories.
Black Friday I headed up to New Hampshire to visit with the Wallace clan. Haley is already walking and talking. Man, the time flies. Friday night we (Nicole and I, not Haley and I) went to see RENT (which I thoroughly enjoyed and I recommend) and met one of the more interesting teenagers I've seen in a long time. She was informing total strangers about her love affair with the movie, how she got into it and explaining which characters have AIDS (although she couldn't quite remember what AIDS stands for, but bless her little heart she tried hard). She provided much fodder for the ride home.
While we were out and about we stumbled upon the town Christmas tree lighting that included fireworks and a Jesus band belting out Christmas carols. It was New England at its finest. It was almost enough for me to up and move.
Eh, I should probably go back to finishing my work. I hate the end of the semester

I'm in love. Head over heels can't stop thinking about it kind of love.
Kareene and I headed over to Ikea today to pick up some things for her new apartment and while we were browsing I found this magnificent piece of furniture. The picture doesn't actually do it justice. Now I'm trying to find a way to justify purchasing the couch. I'm not coming up with an awful lot.
After our shopping excursion we headed over to Arthur Ave for lunch, which was spectacular. I ate far too much and I'm still feeling the effects 5 hours later. So much for the trip to the gym.
Current Mood: in love

|07:42 pm - that's jean.|
me: would you go to a party if the invitation was written in rhyme?
jean: who sent it?
me: i'm writing it and i'm trying to gather support for my rhyming scheme
jean: If it was someone I didn't know well I would say, that's kinda gay but creative
jean: if it was a good friend I"ll call them and tell them they were gay and that I'd be at the party
me: you've never called me and told me that i'm gay
jean: because you would yell at me and tell me you didn't like the use of the word gay in a bad manner
jean: and I'd roll my eyes and say, "fine, then you're lame"
jean: and then you'd be annoyed because you put alot of thought and work into your idea
me: you know me well
jean: it's been a while

My 5th graders are studying the classification of living things. On Friday, one my kids asked me if why when we write the scientific name that the genus is capatilized, but not the species. Of course I had no idea, but I promised to investiagate and get back to the class. I started by asking my scientist friends and then moved on to my latin speaking friends. Apparently nobody has any idea, For all you that shrugged your shoulders, I have the answer!
And because I'm thinking about it and I promised Michelle, Great Big Sea has release a live concert on the internet, you can see it here. It's totally worth checking out, espically if you havent seen the group since they added Murray (of Moxy Fruvous fame).

Yesterday the bodega across the street from school went up in flames about 10 minutes befoe morning line-up. Luckily it's on the opposite side of the building from where the kids enter. Nevertheless we had freaked out kids left and right, a building that took in quite a bit of smoke and a smell that lasted all day long.
Plus it ruined my lessons on observable outside weathering. And I wore my hair down so I smelled all day too,
I can't wait for this lunar eclipse to be done with so things can get back to normal!

This is courtesy of a mailing list I'm on:
Arnold Schwarzenegger, a little known California politician, has made the first commercial of his gubernatorial campaign available on his website. It's not the surprisingly violent finger jabbing that scares me; it's the fact that the ad makes it look like the man has fangs. I also wish they could have found a more flattering photograph of Maria Shriver for the homepage: joinarnold.com.
Who should you vote for, given the opportunity? The porn star, of course. Apologies to the more sensitive among you, but please admit that she has some brilliant planks in her platform, including taxing breast implants and limiting jury duty to the unemployed. It's all right here: marycareyforgovernor.com.
Only in the United States.
