I am very bad at wheel of fortune when my ears are stopped up

You wouldn't think they'd be related, but you'd be wrong. You'd also be wrong if you thought that this would not be important to me. I am the wheel of fortune master. And it stings a little when my awesomeness wavers.

My students are so talented

The same girl that painted the sophomore banner is my student aid. I was able to help her fulfil a "lifelong dream" of completing the wet floor caution sign. Apparently there is some scene in the movie 300 that it bears a striking resemblance to. I definitely saw that movie, but mostly i just remember a bunch of roaring, bare-chested men on ego trips banging on their chests and dragging women around by their hair. If that didn't happen it might as well have.

Apparently the janitors weren't too happy with her addition, but I love it. :)

Overheard between students

One of my Jewish students returned today after being out for 4 days. Poor guy, he really didn't look like he was ready to return.

I overhear a student say to him, "Swine flu ... huh. Is that kosher?"

I laughed outloud hysterically. Couldn't hold that in.

Some homecoming banner photos

I took these before the pep rally, so some groups had lights in their banners (i know, these are crazy!) .... and the lights aren't up yet, but this gives you an idea of why they took so long. there is a closer view of the freshman banner because it's harder to tell what it is. all of them are painted expertly, and you can kind of tell that here, but in person they are impressive!!

We lost :(

For the first time in about 5 years ... the senior class lost. It was so sad!!! They really tried their best though and I was really proud of them. The way the competition works here is that the different classes compete in about 8 different activities, one of which is the banner (that's what we were still working on LATE LATE on Thursday) ... one is the skit (ok that ran pretty late too) ... another is raising money for a charity.

And they raised almost $1100 for Families Helping Families and we'll be able to do such a great christmas for some local families here!!

I took some great photos which I have to show you guys but I have to download them first. The banners really don't translate well to photos, you just can't tell how huge they are and how well they are done.

Anyway, I'll post them tomorrow (I hope!)
