have a set of used, defective ovaries for sale if anyone wants them. I sure as heck don't.

One word of caution: they will make you bleed to death. Okay, probably not to death but it sure as heck will feel like it.

I finally figured out why Los Angeles burns to the ground every year...

You have got to be kidding me...

At work I recently had a co-worker tell me about how she and her husband want to take a week off for a special health related get-away. What is this far off land and what kind of exciting adventures lie on the horizon for them? A big fat ENEMA, only the trendy word for it is Colon Cleansing. Isn't that an oxymoron? There is no such thing as a clean colon. Colon is almost a synonym for dirty. Even a week long enema isn't going to make that thing smell like roses.

Not wanting to be unfair and go off my gut reaction to this, I did a little research. What are the main arguments for Colon Cleansing? It will clean your body of toxins (which toxins?) and will remove years of accumulated fecal matter from your gastro-intestinal tract. That one made me think. If we are accumulating all this fecal matter, why can people in their 40s and 50s poop with no problem never having undergone this procedure? Shouldn't they be stopped up with fecal build up?

Several testimonials say that once the process is complete you feel light and carefree. I think anyone would feel great once a week long enema is over.

Remember kids. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Need a laugh?

Some days you just need a giggle. Today (and yesterday) were one of those days. My IA shared this with me.

Maybe it is time to revamp my scarf collection!

A Teachers Worst Nightmare

A teachers worst nightmare is losing her gradebook. I am living that nightmare as we speak. I have not lost my gradebook but rather the flashdrive that had all of my grades entered into the grade program. With 6th grade matriculation meetings starting tomorrow I need this like I need a hole in my head. It looks like I will be spending the next couple of days re-entering all of the grades from the last quarter. Someone shoot me now. Oh, and if you find a black flashdrive somewhere between here and my school let me know- it may just be my saving grace!

Thought for the day...

As an American citizen I have the right to detain you until the authorities arrive.
I also have the right to kick your butt, which is obvious your father failed to do.

It has been a while...

It has been a while since I have scrapped. In fact, I don't think I have done any scrapbooking since I got married. Well, here is my first attempt after being away from my hobby for a while. (Almost 4 months!)

I don't typically have my pages this cluttered but I decided to try and break out of my typical mold. I am trying to psych myself up to scrap my wedding pages. I guess I am like my mom in that way- I don't want to mess them up. Oh well, I guess that is the beauty of digital scrapbooking- if I don't like it I just delete it.

I'm Posting

So, my lovely wife has been bothering me because I don't post enough. "You don't even read our blog do you?!" yeah. So today I am posting. What about? I might as well update you all to this very second in my life. I was just reading about sumps. What are sumps? Good question, one I had asked myself and have been researching for the last few hours. I will save you the trouble of typing "What is an aquarium sump?" into Google by telling you what I learned. A sump is essentially a tank beneath your display tank. You then have your display tank overflow into a tube that runs down into the sump. Inside the sump you place your heater, filter and protein skimmer, as well as a pump to run the water back up to the display tank. This way the equipment isn't showing in your display tank. You can also use some of the space in your sump as a Refugium, which is a fancy way to say a place you let things grow where they won't get eaten. Things to grow there would be shrimp or crabs that you would let get bigger and propagate so that you can then feed it to the fish in the display tank. Any further questions? Here is a link to the articles I read. So I do post. Occasionally.

Baby Time!!!

Jordan and I had a baby! Okay, actually one of our zebra danios had fry. Most were eaten before being able to hatch but we found one lucky guy swimming around. We have no idea if he will live but here's hoping!

Oh, but today someone at church asked me if I was pregnant. I didn't know that coughing and not feeling well meant you were pregnant. Who knew right?

You just never know...

You just never know what you will find in my classroom. The other day a student service from the office about had a heart attack when Kaitlyn scurried under her foot. (Don't worry- Kaitlyn was in her plastic ball). In the last week I have had 2 new additions to my classroom- a red eared slider turtle and a dwarf bunny. Speedy and Scat love to explore my class.

Speedy and Scat happily exploring the classroom.

Speedy wasn't too sure about being out of her tank...

I really have to wonder what the administration is going to say when they finally walk into my class and see all of my animals. Hm... oh well.
