Hello all! It’s Wednesday yet again, and a pretty good one at that. I’m beginning to settle back into teaching, waving goodbye to summer. It’s a slow and slightly pitiful wave, but it’s made easier by the hilarious people I work with on a daily basis. People make all the difference, don’t they? Just to give you a sampling of the fun that finds its way into random moments–we may or may not have had a serious discussion about naming our new water cooler today, replete with a survey of possible name choices. Seriously awesome.
And in that spirit, my first news story looks at someone else’s day at work. Can you imagine handing over a ring that costs more than most homes just for a guy to swallow and throw back up? Weird day at the office to say the least.
This next story begs the question: Seriously, Finland? It’s Santa Claus.
And in the word of science, Legos rule! Okay, maybe just Lego-like road materials. Still cool, though.
That’s it for me this Wednesday night. I may or may not be looking forward to finding out the results of the water cooler naming survey. Middle school teachers are so similar to middle school kids. *Giggle*
