Back in School

Oh, what a glorious weekend in New York City with the roommates. Too tired to post about it now, but soon...

In the meantime, USC had a rough loss, but the loss was numbed a little by all the beer pong at the USC Alumni bar in New York City. So I still love Coach Pete Carroll with all my heart and appendages, and here is one of the many reasons why:

THE 10 MINUTE VIDEO ON WHY I LOVE PETE CARROLL

In other news...

While in New York, I met up with my literary agent, Michael, for drinks, and he gave me a ton of books. It was like Christmas. Half of them hadn't even been released yet. I was like a kid in a candy store.

So I'm back at school today teaching, and I have good news and bad news.

Good news: my AVID students borrowed every book my literary agent gave me (Apparently, this group of 10th graders LOVES to read and that makes my heart happy)
Bad news: my regular 10th grade English classes BOMBED their quizzes today. And I mean bomb as in bomb-dot-com. They royally bombed them. Hiroshima bombed.

But I received some great dialogue from My'Jina (pronounced Mah-zha-nay) the "Zha" as in "Zha-Zha Gabor"

MY'JINA: Why are you giving us this quiz?
ME: Because I told you I was going to.
MY'JINA: How do you expect us to know this?
ME: I don't know... study?
MY'JINA: I don't study. You're dumb for giving us this quiz.

  1. But of course the teacher is to blame! Well, it couldn't be the student, could it?
