Vegetarian Vultures and Other Tales from the Classroom

There are so many tales. Some of which are so old I may not remember them. I am an elementary teacher. I have been teaching for seventeen years. Yes, I have lots of stories. Stories that will curl your hair...some might make it fall out! I will start posting them here as I remember them. Here's a new fresh one.

I have recently divided my class into two groups for a special project. I thought I would use our school initials to name them so that there would be no A, B...A's are better than B's business. So they were group B and group V. Well, in the course of calling them I discovered they are so close sounding that I needed to name them. So I started calling them Buffalo and Vultures, just to be silly. When one girl whined that she didn't want to be a buffalo I told her that it was better than a vulture because they eat dead stinky skunks. Then, my comedianne from the V group said..."Ewww. If I have to be a vulture, I am going to be a vegetarian vulture!"

My Husband Needs to Blog

Hello out there in blogger land. I told my husband today that he needs to start a blog. He will probably never do it, but if he did it would be much better than mine. He is quite the expert in all things financial, but he is stuck in his job as a coach...which he loves....most of the time. I just think his knowledge is a bit wasted on me. He has taught me most of it. He also talks to the kids...but there are many more people who need this kind of advice in the world.

On HOLD with Toshiba!

Call #1
Okay, I called Toshiba Saturday about a charge they made on my credit card. On Saturday I was told that since it was Sunday I needed to call back the next day on Monday so I could talk to someone in customer service.

Call #2
Called on Sunday...which should be Monday by their logic. Anyway, I told the whole story again and was told that customer relations is closed on Sunday(??????) and to call back on Monday between 8 and 8 Eastern time.

Call #3
Yes, it is really Monday.
This call lasted 43 minutes and the end of which I was disconnected by them.

Call #4
Still Monday, I called back. This call, in which I had to again explain what I needed lasted 39 minutes before they disconnected me.

Call #5
(Yes, I am stubborn!) $86 is $86. Still Monday, about one hour before closing. This call I asked to go straight to customer relations, which I go to go to hold. 36 minutes later I am disconnected by them again!

Call #6
Monday still, I just talked to the info people to try and get some info on when and where the charges took place. This call lasted 10 minutes in which I was told that the representitive would call me in 1 to 5 business days.

Call #7
To the credit card company, which said it would take care of the charge.

Call #8
My husband thought he could make something happen and called the same number. He gave up after 16 minutes on hold.

Final story still to come. In 1 to 5 business days.

IN the meantime, read my forum post:

My Newest Monster is a Cat

Here is my newest bath monster for kids. Several people had told me to make a cat or a dog. Well, I tried the cat first. I knew the ears would be easier. Anyway, I love it and so does my real cat Zoe! She didn't even hiss...which might mean Purrful, bath monster number nine, doesn't look a lot like a cat or at least doesn't smell like one.

Still only one student. He was late and I was afraid he wasn't coming either. So, I sent him with fifth grade to CEI, got my summative conference done, and now he is going to read to me as soon as he finishes his spelling. He also brought money for me to make a scarfette for his mom. What a sweetie! Anyway....if your reading this, thanks! I hope you have a great day where you are. Best wishes!
Hers will be blue and baby blue, but alot like this.

One Student!!!

Good morning all. Here I am in my classroom. Why am I not busy teaching 15 minutes into the school day??? Could it be because I only have one student attending today! One is gone to the Houston Stock Show. The other two...who knows? This hasn't ever happened to me in 17 years of teaching! Well, I know someone will get loads of AR points today. He needs it!

Have a great day where you are!

Anyone Seen My Cat?

Anyone seen this beautiful cat.
She was Mama cat. She was a great mama for several litters of kittens, three of which we still have. She was beautiful, protective and she loved me...finally, after months of attention. Her trust took a while to earn. I know you haven't seen her. I know the horrible truth is that she was killed by the coyotes that roam near here. REst in Peace Mama.


Okay, I want to know your opinion of Lost this year. Do you like the new turns and twists? I love the show and am total hooked of course, but I have a feeling if I was a new viewer I would have given up on the show by now. First off, where's Sawyer. This see-sawing back and forth is rather soap operaey. They tempt us with nice juicey scenes of Sawyer three weeks ago. Wow! Then last week, NO SAWYER! Now, this week, very little Sawyer. I don't care to see Ben every week, but we seem to. I wish Sawyer would kill him already. Maybe that's why Locke let him out!

Captain USA

Okay, I looked at a picture of Captain America so I could figure out how to make a super hero. I think I will call him the blue flash. I should have put more red in to call him Capt. USA.

This is Lennyy the Bath Monster.

He can help kids have a good time and get clean. Made especially for little hands and completely washable and safe for the little ones. He is Bath Monster 1 in what will hopefully be a long line of Bath Monsters. I think he is already spoken for, but check my site for more.
