a few things i've learned this week:
  • The beautiful/terrible thing about teaching high school seniors is their capacity for independent thought.
  • Somehow, 75% of my "advanced" sophomores are incapable of posting a comment on a blog without intense and painfully specific instruction.
  • Tom Brady's human.
  • When it comes to high fashion, I am completely incapable of distinguishing the difference between daringly original avant-garde, and laughably ridiculous costumes.  I do recognize that a model should never look like she's pooing fabric, however.
  • When my DVR wonks out and refuses to record a single thing, it becomes alarmingly clear that I've forgotten how to watch television without it.  (So, did I miss the premieres of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and "Fringe"?  Oh yes.  I did.)
  • Bill O'Reilly may not be the total asshat I always assumed he was.
  • My seniors are of an age where they refuse to believe that Limp Bizkit was ever not a joke.  Furthermore, the mere mention of Carson Daily's name is enough to send them into a helpless fit of giggles.
  • No time is ever a bad time for hot chocolate.
  • I can only make it through six days on the job before resuming my habit of chronic (yet charming!) tardiness.
  • Doing a Google image search for keyword "PETA" is akin to searching for keyword "Porn."  Trust. (And maybe don't try it at work.)

You'll be happy to know that It's Always Sunny doesn't premeire until next week. And the Fringe premeire is online, and will be rebroadcast on Sunday night. See? I'm here to help you with all your tv watching needs.

Well what do you know! Did my husband feed me false information yet again? Oh yes. He did.
