Today I've had two diet cokes, which, added to the stress and anxiety of a regional singles conference coming up this weekend, makes me more jittery than usual...I can't stop bouncing my leg and I jump at the slightest provocation. My students, the other teachers, a piece of paper.
I would also like to discuss the fact that, in order to cut down on expensive teacher gifts (like $60 MAC eyeshadows and $100 bottles of wine) from parents who may or may not have ulterior motives, the administrators at my school have advised the moms to FEED US. Yes, because it is much better to have homely, makeup-less teachers with double chins that scare the children. Just today the menu included:
3 boxes of Krispy Kreme Donuts
1 grape/chocolate cake (don't get me started. I've had chocolate fondue with cherry TOMATOES here)
12 little mini cheesecake type things
10 vitamin C drinks (for our health, hahhahahaha)
It's 4:50pm and I'm just waiting for the late entries to vie for our attention. Who knows what tomorrow holds!
And, just to let you know, one of the seamonkeys (TM) left for dead, made a miraculous Lazarus-like recovery and now sports a wraith like body and what appear to be testicles (unless they are egg sacks..my gender awareness with seamonkeys is sorely lacking) Will we have Sea Monkey Babies? I can't find the babydaddy if that's the case, but knowing the way things go these days, she/he probably ate the mate. oh, I don't liek the word "mate".
