... a few fun thoughts for the day:
1. There is a kid at my school whose name is Thankyou. I saw it on the in-school suspension list today and I looked up the kid to make sure it wasn't a typo! He's a pacific islander, and his first name is all one word: Thankyou. Maybe I'm culturally insensitive, maybe it's really a common name in his culture, but I had to laugh. I mean, seriously? The only worse name I've seen was a Hispanic kid in a McMinnville elementary school named Yoda. Luckily, he didn't look
2. My school got a bomb threat yesterday... yeah. Gave one of my kids a key to the bathroom across the hall (kept locked because it's constantly tagged with gang graffitti)and the poor kid came back to class trembling, with the following comment whispered timidly: "Ms. W... um... there's a bomb threat written in the bathroom....butIpromiseIdidn'tdoitI'mnot
introubleamI?" Poor kid. Apparantly they caught the kid, but it wasn't reassuring that it was written literally ten feet from my classroom.
3. I bought shiny new kitchen stuff. Went to a "Pampered Chef" event my co-worker was holding (dontcha just love pyramid schemes? You'd think people would learn that the company's the only true winner there) and I heart kitchen utensils/appliances/bakewear/anything used in the room... I could have spent so much but I was a good girl and only spent $40. I can't wait for it to get here! :o)
