Christmas Ornament

Here's MY idea:

know how ya have those packages on christmas day shipped from loved ones? how about the uber cool Ornament & Package Opener?

A Mini Santa-Headed Dagger stored in a Stocking cute protective covering. Child-proof and cat-proof of course. It hangs from your tree so you don't have to go and hunt down a pocket knife or pair of scissors with which to open packages :-)

Rough six weeks...

Please keep Susan Wilson, a fellow awesome math teacher I work with, in your prayers. Her mother died this morning from complications of pneumonia I believe. She'd been in the hospital since Thanksgiving.

I feel like a decapitated chicken running around trying to find its head.

I'll be in Austin the next three days. All by myself in a king-size suite, spending my days with other Algebra teachers...

This is all last minute and I have to get everything ready for 3 days of a substitute.

We decorated our Christmas tree!!!

I give finals in a week.

Funny Stories from the Week

Other than all the frazzlements of the week:

#1 Teacher: You're getting new seating charts and you will abide by it while the sub is here.

Student: But I like my Seat!!

Teacher: But your seat doesn't like you.

#2 Student: My calculator is on crack!

Teacher: The calculator is on crack only if the user is on crack.

#3 This is the best, really, I almost had to leave the classroom to laugh and laugh and laugh...

Teacher: So you have to remember that with slope, the y change is on the top.

*working examples*

Student: This reminds me of reproductive systems.

"blink blink" Class and Teacher look strangely at Student.

Random Pondering from other students: I guess with putting the ys together...

click the link for the best line:

Student: yeah, just remember that y is always on the top!

after many giggles, Teacher informs class that she'll be disappointed if they ever forget that with slope, y is on the top. she has to quickly finish examples because she can't ask "now what's on top?" anymore without giggles from all...
