You know you got juice...

When your students are so fired up for their AP Biology exam that this is the kind picture you get texted to you

I am just a WIZ with the paint program. My services are available for a small fee.

Brought tears to my eyes, I was so proud. (she is fine, btw)

And yes, I text with my students. My husband is convinced I am going through some sort of peri-menopausal midlife crisis and regressing to the maturity of a 17 year old girl.

'Cha, as if!

My husband is convinced I am ... regressing to the maturity of a 17 year old girl.

So wait ... I missed that day when you had matured past the level of a 17 year old girl?

Hahahahahaha!

Somebody said something really nasty about you in a comment on SteveQ's blog. (I think it was a 17 year old girl, but I don't remember.) This commenter implied you were of easy virtue!

As if virtue were even an issue where you're concerned!

I went to a restore-funding-to-our-libraries rally in Trenton today, so I may have to post sooner than I expected. Because I got my picture in the paper, here.

Can you spot me? I'm the guy near the back in the red shirt. (My hands are in my pockets because I was ... um ... "adjusting" myself. Either that or i was saying, "I got yer library cuts, Governor Christie, right HERE [grab-grab]." In all likelihood, it was both these things.)

Excited for a Biology Exam? Sounds like shades of Better Off Dead...

New reader...love anybody who liberally uses my favorite "fucking" word.

Keep up the great work, kids benefit greatly from people like you who don't take life too fucking seriously.

Already like this Glaven guy too.

LOL at your AP Bio student... Awesome that you have them so scared that they're texting you pix from the hospital.

Of course, the scarier than an AP bio teacher in the weeks before the AP bio exam, would have to be 100s of librarians protesting 'en mass.

Do you think they shushed each other in the crowd?

Regressing?!? Wethinks you might already be there....

I am friends with a high school teacher and an elementary school teacher on facebook. But they were the cool ones. So that must mean your students think you are cool :)

@ Rapp - Glaven does not like you...

Jo Lynn said...

You *did* recently have a post title something like "Happy 19th birthday to me!" ;)

Hey B*tch! Teh 'Bride, who I thought had stopped reading my blog altogether - she gets enough of my sense of "humor" at home - just yesterday started reading it again¹ and followed one of your comments here to your blog and started reading about your hub's fight with cancer and sez she saw where you said he got like all hot body temp-wise at night and she told me I should pass a long this here link to a site that sells body temp-regulating pjs.

See, there's the difference between me and Teh 'Bride: I come here to mock you mercilessly; she comes in Peace to Help and Serve Mankind. (I say MANkind because I told her you're a tranny.)

@NeilZ: Don't worry. You'll always be my First True Hate.

¹ Because she saw where, at the beginning of Genteel April, I promised to start May with the most obscenity-laden post EVER. She was disappointed when she saw I didn't do it.

That's what I do: disappoint foax.

B@st@rds changed the picture at that article I sent you the link to in my first comment! You can's see me anymore!

SteveQ said...

Oh, she's MORE than fine. She's jailbait and tethered to a machine; my kinda girl!

Then again, I go cruising Jenny Craig centers for perimenopausal women with mid-life crises, too.

Kimberly said...

Hey, I text with my youth kids all the freakin' time. They are why I started texting and I love it!

Roisin said...

Damn. I can honestly say, I'd probably have done the same thing as that poor, misguided girl in your picture. The things we do for college credits.

Willie said...

I really want to believe that there's something wrong with someone that into biology but just can't. It's actually very cool and you should be proud!
