TGIF (or nearly)

I am ready for the weekend.

I was reflecting on things, recently, and realized that things have been rather dry on the amusing-notes-written-by-middle-schoolers front. Sorry, but I can't MAKE them be crazy and funny.

Things at work are better this week than last. I am generally enjoying myself throughout the day. I still don't think, however, that doing classroom intervention with poorly behaved adolescents is my calling in life.

At home, I am rather frustrated because I can't find the charger for my camera battery. I haven't used my camera much since Christmas, but when I wanted to use it over the last weekend, I couldn't because the battery was dead and the charger wasn't in the place where I habitually keep it. *sigh* So I guess this means that I'll have to spend some time this weekend cleaning and going through my stuff till I find it.

RIP, Betty Hutton

I kept thinking I had something about which to blog, but then kept forgetting about it. Finally, I remembered while at a computer.

Another great Hollywood legend has passed on.

Betty Hutton gave audiences a lot of laughs, and my personal favorite of her films is The Miracle of Morgan's Creek. She died on March 15, of colon cancer.

Let's see...

I've accomplished little in the past week. All I've managed to do is go to work each day. I'm tired.

Things have been kind of slow on the funny-notes-written-by-middle-schoolers front. I also don't have dramatic stories or anything.

The funniest thing that happened last week was when I was having a conversation with some of my young male students about such things as the function and significance of the grill. One young man insisted that a grill with good bling would attract girls. I responded that they are all too young to be worrying about girls so much.
Me: You should be enjoying your youth. You'll have plenty of time to be grown up, and worry about girls and romance and stuff, for the rest of your life. How old do you think I was when I had my first boyfriend?
Them: [various guesses] 12? 14? 16?
Me: No, no, I was 18. I was an adult before I had a boyfriend.
Young man: So before that, you only dated girls?

Haha. Priceless! These kids are really quite narrow-minded and limited in their conception of the world.
