it took me 21 seconds…

to do this.


are tonsils really necessary?

Well, having just gotten over my second case of strep throat in 2 months….I think not.  At least, that’s what people are telling me.  Blame the tonsils, they say.  Take them out!  Get rid of them!

Surgery doesn’t sound fun, but neither does regularly having strep throat.  I was lucky this time because it was spring break and I only lost one day of work…

Plus, my doctor had the nerve to be on vacation while I was sick!  Can you believe it??

field trips: worth the pain? discuss…

42 students. 4 adults. 1 bus. 1 hour drive. the great outdoors.

Recipe for disaster or the best day they will ever have? I’m not sure at this point.  I’m really wondering, is this year’s field trip worth the hassle?  I guess I will find out tomorrow.


One of my students, when asked what meiosis makes, just replied, “BABIES!!!”

I guess only science geeks will get that one?

A minute later, he scared us by saying, “If you say ‘sperm & eggs’ real fast, it sounds like something you’d have for breakfast.”

I tried walking out of the room and coming back in to start fresh, but it didn’t work.  😛
