Five Things Friday

Happy Friday all.  I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am, especially in the calf-al area, that it’s Friday!  We’ll get to why as we quickly swing into 

1.  Yesterday afternoon was the open house for our school; a chance for teachers to meet with parents and students, introduce them to the new classroom locations, give supply and novel lists, a general run-down for the year, and just make that initial contact.  Can I just tell you first that it went SO well!  Even though I’ve been through six years of open houses, parent-teacher conferences, and other school events, I was still all

But once I got through the first one or two introductions and spiels, I was all

but it was more like

2.  Yesterday was the first day in over three years that I wore high heels for more than an hour.  Thankfully my feet forgave me because they’re covered in callouses from running, but my calves were all

We’ll have to see if those shoes make it back into rotation.  They’re too cute not too though.

3.  A Geometry theorem:  If both James Patterson and I have the same writing style, then I should be rolling in book advancement checks.

I stand by my point that math sucks.

Other great words of writing wisdom from the mouths of those who should know.

4.  I’m gonna be a mom!

NOT!  Calm down Mom and Mother-in-Law!  Of course I would announce to my entire family via blog post that I was pregnant, who doesn’t????  Two days ago I joined the website Savethewords.org, whose mission is to preserve the bountiful language that is English.  They posted a staggering statistic that 90% of our communication is through only 7,000 words.  Does that number seem low to you too??  Anyways, I have adopted three adorable words:

Boreism: (noun) the behavior of a boring person

I could tell that my date was only capable of boreism, so I hid in the bathroom for an hour.

Fopotee: (noun) a simple-minded person

Only a fopotee would purchase the new Paris Hilton album.

Prandicle: (noun) a small meal

The only way to enjoy a prandicle is if you know a buffet is waiting for you afterwards.

5.  Tomorrow marks the last weekend before school starts so you know what that means!

  1. You really had me going at first on the “mom” thing! As the parent of an 18 year old, 19 year old, and 21 year old I will tell you that you made the best choice on your adoption! 🙂

    I.am.Garfield. Literally! I have had a full week of work from about 8-8 each day. What the heck am I even doing on the computer this late at night? Oh, yeah-looking for a video clip to help with the parts of speech. 🙂

    Hope you have a jammin great day at school on Monday!

    • I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I’m choosing to spend the last weekend before school starts AT SCHOOL! Thankfully, my home-away-from-home has a much lower monthly payment =)

      • LOl! This is the 1st time in 8 years of teaching that I have NOT been at the school on this weekend. I’ll probably go in Monday and realize I didn’t do something extremely important-like lesson plans, etc. 🙂
