Friday Cemetery Blogging

Once again foiled by the dastardly foibles of technology. Can't get me photos to upload today for love nor money. So. Perhaps we should talk amongst ourselves.

How has your week been? Mine - ok. I finished teaching the drug offender classes earlier this week. It was one of my better classes. This bothered me somewhat because the class was made up of people who were very much like me - same socio-economic/racial group. I've wondered about this for the last two weeks. Did I relate better to them because they are like me? Did they relate better to me for the same reason? Did I make more of an effort to connect with them because we are more alike? Or was it simply that their personalities meshed with each other so that they felt more comfortable being a part of the group and contributing to the discussion? I don't know, but it made me think.

Jackson is covering the island in the kitchen with (insert descriptor that rhymes with kitchen and makes for a cool sentence, but would also get your mouth washed out with soap) blue tile. Its his first tile job and looks pretty good. Props for picking out cool tiles, dude!

KaptainKatie got honorable mention on her literacy day poster - her theme was "Camp Out Your Imagination". Poor kid - all she got from the deal was a certificate and a lecture about "think how well you could have done if you'd really worked on this instead of spending thirty minutes on it the night before it was due."

Rumor has it we will all wear costumes to work on Monday. So far the plan is for everyone to wear aluminum foil hats to keep the aliens out of our brains. I'll let ya know how it turns out. (Of course, anyone going to court is forbidden from wearing their anti-alien gear.)

So...what? Aluminum foil be used as a weapon???

Headless-in-GR said...

*can* be used...

More of a shield than a weapon, Headless. It also works to keep the spys from reading your thoughts.

Headless-in-GR said...

Yeah, but how come you can't wear it in court then?!? It should be *required*!

Friday Mom said...

And your costume will be....? Or, is the aluminum foil the costume?

Lorna said...

alum. foil in court might be good

no pics though. I was looking at mine again - the one in the churchyard - do you think the stone looks like a face or is it just me?

My mother in law used to use aluminum foil to keep from hearing voices. No Joke. It worked until she got meds.

I hate to hear about the problems with the photos, but then again, I can't post photos either, and Lord knows, misery loves company.

I'll content myself with looking forward to the aluminum foil head pictures.

I agree with headless. alum. foil hats should be required in court.
