Just a bit, mind you, but that’s better than before!
1. I love to bake homemade bread. People are always threatening me with a bread machine, but I do not want one. Not in the LEAST! Bread machine bread is not homemade bread. It’s only truly homemade bread if you mix it all up in a huge bowl, measuring with your eyes and the palm of your hand, throw it on the table and knead it with your own two hands, divide it into loaves yourself, and bake them in an oven. Calling bread machine bread “homemade” is like calling Betty Crocker Cake Mix cake homemade. They’re good, sure, but they are NOT “homemade.” They are cheating.
2. I can not make good homemade cake, so I cheat with Betty Crocker. Sometimes, I cheat with Duncan Hines. It depends on who’s cheaper that week. I am a discount cheater.
3. I want to dress up and go to a party.
4. I don’t understand why school textbook companies put such lousy poetry in their textbooks. It’s almost as though they don’t want our kids to learn to love it.
5. Textbook companies that put abridged versions of anything in their textbooks are not good companies.
6. School systems that purchase a textbook containing an abridgement are not good school systems.
7. I am bored. Seriously, dangerously, bored.
8. I am also exhausted. Seriously, dangerously, exhausted.
9. I want to bungee-jump off a bridge over deep water. That way, if the cord breaks, I won’t splatter on concrete; I’ll just swim to a rock and hold on until a heliocopter drops a rope and rescues me. Then I can tell people that not only have I bungee-jumped; I’ve also dangled from a heliocopter.
10. When Kim had J.D.’s baby, Scrubs may have jumped the shark for me.
That’s ten things, so I’ll stop now.
Don’t forget: The Carnival of Education is over at Steve Spangler’s blog this week, so get your entries in!
