Overheard in my Classrom: II

I don't want to go on vacation! I love school! I want to stay forever!

I want to stay until I'm 257 years old!

I want to stay until I DIE!

I want to stay until my socks get dirty.

Friday's Feast

From Friday's Feast.

Make up a word and give us its definition.
Batterlingus: the act of licking cake batter off the spoon.

What is currently your favorite song? Wake Up Call by Maroon 5

What’s at the top of your Christmas wish list this year? A house.

Main Course
Name a scent that reminds you of someone special in your life. I was once in love with a musician who wore Kouros by Yves Saint Laurent. Every time I smell it I go out of my mind.

Who is someone on television that you feel probably shouldn’t be, and why? Ryan Seacrest. Why? He's an arrogant fuckwit with absolutely no talent and no personality. Also, he's a total tool.

Now Read This

It's been a long time since I read a book that has made such an impact on me. It's incredible how one woman's spiritual journey across Italy, India, and Indonesia can feel like my journey - and even better - everyone's journey. If you haven't read it, do so. While men may consider this a chick book, it's not. It's a book about transformation, inspiration, learning, balance, health, friendship, love, and food. Read it.

So, read any good books lately? Do share.
