Supporting Tad (very UnPC do not read if offended)

My sister and I just laughed so hard my stomach still hurts. And of course it was a topic prolly only we find funny and is very unPC in a way

When I visited at the end of April. Ssome kids down the block found supposed tadpoles and gave my nephew one of them. Since then my sister has been dealing with this thing. She's been like I have not cleaned the water or anything and it still lives.

She then was asking me how long it takes for a tadpole to turn into a frog - and I said hmm and teasing said about 4 - 6 weeks (I think really most varieties itakes about 8 - 10 weeks)

Well this set her off cause she was like Julie it is a frog head and tail and no legs, it is deformed. I wanna get rid of it. I have it on the microwave and it is just like staring at us.

So I start teasing - well you left it on the microwave so it got zapped and is deformed now and is prolly going to turn into a monster – or maybe it will never grow its legs. And I go on about well you could oopsie it inttoilettoliet or such when son not looking and she is like no can not do that but what am I going to do with this poor thing. She will not even touch it in anyway to change the water - lol

Then she starts big time and it is all downhill from there - My son's tadpole is a quadriplegic and will never look like a regular frog (which in an odd use of the prefix that fits a frog that unfortunate malady is also known as tetraplegia)

And we went downhill from there - we discussed getting paper faces of the froggie and selling them for a dollar to support the Tad Foundation and help other quadriplegic frogs (you know like those things they ask you to donate a $1 at different fast food and other stores and you sign your name and they display it around the store) I was like you could put the papers along your front door and stuff

Then we decided on holding a 4k walk (1 k for each limb)

And then on to a telethon and who would sing and host (of course special appearances by Kermit and other famous reptiles and amphibians - we went on and on with the guest list and who would do what and such)

All to support Tad and get him a wheelchair so he could still go down to the lake and stuff and bring awareness to this issue.

Of course we ran into a glitch - he'd need an electric one since no limbs but first time he drives it into the water... Well we'd be calling the local French restaurant.

Basically that was the conversation tone - dissing on her son's poor froggie

Quadriplegia is a serious issue and you can find out more at these sites


okay off to working still on projects for work and tyring not to go crazy

Just some random funnies and idle blips of life

Was getting gas yesterday and pulled in and there is a pickup truck with a big boat. I pull up and ask for my $10.00 worth and watching finally notice the guy up on the boat fillig it up - he is shaking his head going, "Shit, oh damn, shit." Well we keep getting our gass and he is muttering and occasionally grinning so I have to ask next time I catch his eye,

"How much"

"306 gallons and I thought it was not empty, oh shit."

My next thoughts are - "Crap fill my tank hurry before he sucks the damn gas station dry" lol


My co worker is a goof but then so am I - so we are always laughing. He was telling me flag football stories yesterday as he was preparing for the schools annual staff vs players softball game.

He use to use the hup swivel step to keep his flag safe. So here is this grown man demonstrating how he'd be running and then do a "hup" and like shot his hip out and over and skip while still running. He said he'd always get touch downs cause everyone was laughing so hard at his little hup fairy move that they'd stop chasing him.

Then he went on to his wife and no huddle story - hehe- he likes to call huddles and try to plan and his wife always gets on him about doing no f*ing huddle and it is a waste and all that but he still got them to do it. So he plans a play for his wife to cut here and there and then he'd throw the ball. Well the center gets in and he has to get rid of the ball meanwhile his wife is doing her stuff and then turns waiting for the ball. He said he had to run after that as his wife ran the field cursing him out about the huddle and then no ball and all that....


Attended a kindergarten orientation and watching those kids OMG they are funny - of course I was as bored as they were with the talking and bouncing around a little too...


not sure of plans for the holiday weekend (at least it is a three day weekend) I think I am going to see Fuzzy Bunny Slippers tomorrow, not sure what else figure something out


Just got another conference proposal for International Reading Across the Curriculum my boss wants me to present at - it is in Chicago at the end of March or April or sometime - will start working on that.


officially all 8 presentations for the HSTW conference were accepted for the conference so I am presenting a bunch - will need that great Nashville nightlife at the end of the day I think - lol


Worked on Welding curriculum with welding teacher yesterday, it was cool learning the differences in techniques and what is used for what. Will be going in classroom next week to observe and such.


Going to see Melissa Fredrrick next Friday - got the tickets yesterday


Gotta match the NJ standards to the new hospitality and tourism curriculum for my Boss this weekend - guess that is what I am doing - lots of typing and curriculum projects.


Sisters are not too bad - kinda weird - my youngest, who is the weirdest of all, is again pregnant but had complications... she continues to play this game that is... it is incredibly stupid and no way to get through to her... sisters are the best and worst people in your life sometimes - other sister is having family things with her partner - I hope they get through ok - preggers sister (not youngest) getting tired a lot and still working through some stuff but I think it is a more thumbs up or at least sideways day right now then thumbs down which is good

Life's F*ing ironic Cycles and A good concert

Well been long week - Thursday was my anniversary - well ex-anniversary now I guess. It is also the day my ex called and said he had signed and I needed to sign the property settlement divorce papers as that is the major step in the divorce (still have to do the file in court and he wants to do it early so I am whatever) so hey is that a life cycle for you or what... married and the separation official process all on the same day....

we have biologic cycles, weather cycles, oceanic cycles, geologic cycles, bank checking cycles, menstrual cycles, guess my relation went in a big cycle too....

funny - more than feeling melancholy over being anniversary I was more depressed over fact I was not depressed about being divorced (well separated, official court stamp still needed for the d word) and yet I thought I should be and then realized what really hit me is the not being in a relationship

Friday had to sit through this web conference for work that was not scheduled until 3pm - who schedules a web conference for 3pm on a Friday (when most schools get out at 230…) well it turned out I had no problems getting in (I am the director now for this program so figured I better attend – lol) and it ended up being all about conference registration which I had already completed a while ago – lol

So I worked on some other projects while listening to the conference call portion and trying not to laugh.

Then went up to Tom's River and the Rittacco Center again – this time instead of the auditorium (where I saw Vanessa Carlton) they had it in the basketball gym – which was cool– had the stage and then a big space and then the bleachers.

It was Relient K and Good Charlotte and it was a good show. Good Charlotte had a graveyard themed stage complete with gargoyles, tombs and this call metal gate overhead with the word Nevermore.

The lyrics of the songs CG sang really hit home – very much home, like I could sing a lot of them and mean them.

I was sitting in the bleachers dancing around – really moving my legs and stuff and as I watched the whole evening – the people around me just sat there – lol – I was like geez I was the only freak moving and dancing and getting into the music – hehe they could have rented the concert DVD and saved money – lol.

But eh I love concerts cause I people watch, can feel the music not just hear it (Oh damn when the bass goes and rumbles your chest that feels awesome) and the stories they tell and most importantly I like to dance. I am no good dancing and was doing it sitting down – did not feel like getting mushed in the center area were people were standing.

But I like to dance – I'd go more to clubs but it is weird going alone and dancing alone…

Picked up this flyer at the concert about a music expo coming in September to Asbury park – it is targeted for bands and how to break into the business – but there are some neat things with it (like workshops on learning how to work a soundboard – sounds demented by I'd like to know that – I always like to sit behind the booth in concerts and watch them)– I might go could be wacky fun.

Got my one nephew a GC wristband – he likes the band and would have gone with me if not in Arizona – lol

Went to a party for a person from work today (same one I went to Lisa Marie with) – it was fun and we had a good time – I was the youngest person there but it was cool

Okay gotta go finish up grades, mowing lawn, doing laundry and all that yucky house work… not sure what to do tomorrow… hmmmmmm I'll have to think of something :-D

Stone Pony, Don't Look, Don't Look - ha made you look

Keeping Busy

Whew- had an awesome day Sunday – went to a concert with a friend from work – traveled up the parkway to Asbury Park and the Stone Pony to see John Eddie and Lisa Marie Prelsey – that was fun. We got to Asbury park early and fond it is a run down place and true shore town as the venus the stone pony is across from the boardwalka dn the ocean and nothing really was open. We walked around a bit, hit a local dive to have a drink watching the locals.

My friend enjoyed teasing me as I was facing her and she started decribing this one person. My back was of course to the person and from the colorful description what is the first thing I wanna do??? Turn around, and of course I can’t, not in a place like this and her describing this person. Don't look, don't, okay drop a napkin damn she moved, try to stretch damn she moved, stop laughing at me Donna and stop telling me all the funny, I wanna see dman it.

Actually the person I went with was funny and kept getting me in trouble – lol – anyhoo I finally got "interested" in the baseball game on the tv behind me and got to see the local chick who looked very local and very run down and basically was going around to all of the men in the place trying to get picked up or at least a drink…….

Man it always happens with me – people describe something funny and there is no way I can see it and enjoy without being totally obvious damnit – lol

The venue was cool – local, small but great – I plan on going back.

While standing in line, met this woman from the Bronx (we are only about an hour south of NYC) and her 20 year old son – the son had extra ticket because a friend of his cancelled so the mom came. The son and I chatted about Tri Amos and other stuff while my friend talked to the mother – they were funny and helped make the time go faster.

The concert was great and liked seeing Lisa Marie that close and all as did my friend who states she does not get out enough and I was bad getting her out… but hey we are going at least to see Tori in August and maybes others too – I am a bad influence dragging people out and about.

Gave my last final tonight and then a few of the students and I went out after – that was fun and nice and boy did the topic go all over :-) (somehow we got from planetary geology to female ejaculation and then to PBMers and over to deep sea exploration and the show Survivor and it just kept going as the drinks kept coming – j/k I was very good and listening and people watching and enjoying myself)

Tomorrow working on writing a class on using electronic formats such as blogs – hey what a co-winky-dink, to enhance writing in the classroom. I try to have some fun topics in there with the more serious stuff like the current day classes of Reading Comprehension (5 periods of that tomorrow during the day).

Looking for a movie - not sure if I will be able to find it or not… The Incredibly True Adventures of Two Girls in Love

Plugging away to the end of semester and stuff

Finals week for one college class I teach and last lecture and lab this week for the other with final next Tuesday. My students conned me into driving out to the college yesterday to hold a review for them. I am such a push over - hour drive out and back to help them review... but I was glad some showed up and if it helps them... then that is what matters.

That is the type of person I am - kinda pain in the ass for me - but it matters to me to help people out and do stuff. So many people today don't take the extra step or only sometimes do or even end up getting kicked or ignored

I figure enough shit comes from other sources why be a source of that myself... of course that leads to sucker being printed on forehead and ending up in situations that are really more pain than pleasure... but I keep sticking my hand out to help and sometimes yeah it gets chopped off... I suppose the practical side of me knows one day the hand does not grow back, one day I do not hold it out...

But until then working to remain optimistically, naive and blonde and moving forward with my half catching on to things and blushing when I finally figure it out attitude to life - lol

Well I now am going to become an expert in Welding - yup you read that right and I am LMAO - I am now co writing the Welding curriculum for the high school along with having the Allied Medical curriculum added to my ever growing list of summer projects to over see. Wheeeeeeee no two days are ever quite the same at work - fun and insanity wrapped into one - hey that describes me very well - :-D

Also working on writing other curriculum and lesson plans - working on one how to purchase Cell phones and such - man-o-man I stared at standards last night until I went nuts - hurray for posting and writing and RPGs saving my sanity - need more saving though - lol

Got tickets to go see Tori Amos in August managed to con someone from work to go with me - actually same person I am going with Sunday to see Lisa Marie Presley at the historic Stone Pony in Asbury Park - oh yeahhhhhhh and Good Charlotte and Reliant K next Friday

Music and writing the things that keep me sane through all the pressure and projects and crappolla - need someone around to share the insanity with - hehehe

Some songs to share

Garbage - Why Do I Love You

I'm no barbie doll
I'm not your baby girl
I've done ugly things and I have made mistakes
And I am not as pretty as those girls in magazines
I am rotten to my core if they're to be believed
So what if I'm no baby bird hanging upon your every word?
Nothing ever smells of roses that rises out of mud

Why do you love me (times 2)
Why do you love me, it's driving me crazy
Why do you love me (times 2)
Why do you love me, it's driving me crazy
Why do you love me (times 2)
Why do you love me, it's driving me crazy

You're not some baby boy
Why you acting so surprised
You're sick of all the rules
Well I'm sick of all your lies
Now I've held back a wealth of shit, I think I'm gonna choke
I'm standing in the shadows with the words stuck in my throat
Does it really come as a surprise when I tell you I don't feel good?
Nothing ever came from nothing man
Oh man, ain't that the truth

I get back up and I do it again (times 4)

Do it again (times 3)

Why do you love me (times 2)
Why do you love me, it's driving me crazy
Why do you love me (times 2)
Why do you love me, it's driving me crazy
Why do you love me (times 2)
Why do you love me, it's driving me crazy
Why do you love me (times 4)

I think you're sleeping with a friend of mine
I have no proof but I think that I'm right
And you've still got the most beautiful face
It just makes me sad most of the time

I get back up and I do it again (times 4)

Do it again (times 3)

Why do you love me (times 2)
Why do you love me, it's driving me crazy
Why do you love me (times 2)
Why do you love me, it's driving me crazy
Why do you love me (times 4)

Tori Amos - Crucify (excellent lyric writer - she is cool)

Every finger in the room
is pointing at me
I wanna spit in their faces
Then I get afraid of what that could bring
I got a bowling ball in my stomach
I got a desert in my mouth
Figures that my courage would choose to sell our now
I've been looking for a savior in these dirty streets
looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
I've been raising up my hands
Drive another nail in
Just what God needs
One more victim

Why do we
Crucify ourselves
Every day
I crucify myself
Nothing I do is good enough for you
Crucify myself
Every day
And my heart is sick of being in chains

Got a kick for a dog
Beggin' for Love
I gotta have my suffering
So that I can have my cross
I know a cat named Easter
He says will you ever learn
You're just an empty cage girl
If you kill the bird
I've been looking for a savior in these dirty streets
looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
I've been raising up my hands
Drive another nail in
Got enough guilt to start
my own religion
Please be
Save me
I cry

Why do we
Crucify ourselves
Every day
I crucify myself
Nothing I do is good enough for you
Crucify myself
Every day
And my heart is sick of being in chains

Field Trip rocked and other interesting notes

Awesome field trip, the students were great, weather rocked and we stopped by Pat's Steaks in Philly on way back for lunch.

And I did not get lost, lose any students or have anyone injured - even though we had to go down a couple of outcrops on our butts, yay prides, butts and all intact!

The students enjoyed it, many never having really done anything like this and saying they never had a teacher who made them do stuff like this or made them laugh and the like. I mean I had them up and down the hillside, on hands and knees peering at rocks, digging in the dirt for sediment, drinking from the stream and acting like a bunch of giddy kids.

Plus they learned something too!!! Lol

I love checking different things out and traveling and learning. Listening to the students talk was great and fun and the drive up and back was cool too, got into a lot of conversations cause the students range in age from 16 to upper 40s in my class - that is a great mix because the perspectives are so diverse.

I love listening to them talk and the topics - lol from family and the shit they pull (wow we found out we have some wild siblings amongst the people who were in the car), to being responsible in relationships, to kids in school to concerts (Oh found a new venue AWESOME more music - getting ready for concert this Friday) - to entertainment and the like - it was great. I love teaching and sometimes it is the worst thing in the world -LMAO

Trying to figure out if I wanna drive down to Dragon Con or fly - I kinda wanna drive but the drive back would be hard and means I leave a little earlier from the convention... but I'd like to take an extra day or even two going down and just explore some... I think I will do that...

Okay off to prep my conference presentation for Wednesday - Effective PowerPoint and Rubrics - ooo doesn't that title send chills up your spine? Okay maybe that is dry heaves... hehe

And leaving with a song or two as the thoughts for the day

Amanda Sena - come play in NJ :-D

Amanda Sena - Monsters

Vs 1
Let's sit down we need to talk
I've got a lot on my shoulders
that I need to get off and
And I know this is all new to us
But I believe we'll be okay
If we just get through another day

You're changing
I'm changing
We're turning into monsters again
You're losing
I'm losing
This is something we need to win

Vs 2
So he's gone we need to
start a new
we need
we need to know
we need to listen
and we really need to believe
I'm messed up again
and I know you are too
But I believe we'll be okay
If we just get through another day


Vs 3
Let's sit down we need to talk
Lately I've been noticing
that we're falling apart
this isn't how it was supposed to be
but I believe we'll be okay
if we just get through another day



I'm Alright - Written by:Amanda sena

Vs 1
I don't know much about love
never have and never will
I guess you can say I'm lame
I've spun around 1,000 times
and have always ended
back in the beginning of the game

VS 2
My blood runs thick and cold
my prophecy is bold
and I'm still realizing it's fine
The other side is sold
my soul is turning old
nothing no longer expands time

And sometimes I can't remember where I'm coming from and
there's times when I feel sorry for the things that I've done

But I'm alright
I'll survive
I'm okay this time
Don't worry about me, I'll be fine
I'm alright

Vs 3
The answers have no cure
the holy trail ain't pure
and yet the world still seems to revolve
In times both high and low
I still have some things to show
and yet some more jigsaw puzzles to solve

Vs 4
Inside your broken dream
are you conformed into the mass parade?
Nightmares frighten me
I shiver when I sleep
and relive the feeling when I wake



Upon your back you crawl
sprawled upon the floor
guess what's behind your door
everything you need/ this is all...

Field trip a comin and cooking yummies

Well decided to celebrate Cinco de Mayo by cooking – made tortilla chip and green chile crusted salmon, jalapeno chicken sausage, and homemade Mexican rice. Only thing missing was my jalapeno cornbread – I was not that ambitious… lol

Finishing up more grading for my geology class. We have a field trip scheduled for tomorrow morning but weather may call it off, well the students think it will be called off,

We are meeting at 7:30 and if I can break into the college if still raining, we will have the field trip anyways – yes they are not getting a day off – I am a "hard ass make them work" teacher… :-P

If we do go, should be fun. It is a nice location in the middle of Philadelphia – yes a park in the city and yes geology there too – lol

Actually to do most field trips I have to have the students drive at least an hour or so (and listen to them whine) cause well southern NJ is FFFFLLLLAAAATTTT – lol

Not to dis where I live but except for the funny make me laugh so hard I choke up for minutes beach replenishment games (oh do not get me started at the millions of dollars spent to preserve a little sliver of moving sand…) geology is a little boring here – I do miss Arizona in that regards… um okay guess I miss it to cause of sisters living there – hehe yes Kath I do still love you - :-P miss you lots actually and hope pregnancy is going well!!! Man another niece or nephew coming - I have like almost a dozen of those - my sisters just keep popping them out - lol

Listening to Andrew Holtz, Dance Divas trance mix, Reliant K (seeing them in concert next Friday with good Charlotte) and Michelle Branch, yes my tastes are odd tonight. Working on Fur Elise and Ode to Joy still ala piano plus trying to get through the chapters.

Actually mood been a bit odd, reflective, dreaming and the like… ah well

Dreaming is good, keeps me from wishing certain things and the like…

Well got my flip charts, sharpies and illustrations all set. Clipboards, check, field trip lucky hiking hat (tan ball cap with dark blue mickey surfing :-D ) check, hand lens and ruler and the like… check… alllllright I am stylin'

Wish me luck :^)

Hooray - Getting Some stuff done

Hooray tests are graded


Hooray Hair is shorter

(been trying for a long time and finally got my usual - straight so it just hangs at my shoulders and my bangs are right about eyebrow length - wow a real rebel in hair fashion - and oh I have never, ever colored my hair at all, not dye, or paint or as my crack-addle brained sister once did..

flashback coming up

Oh My God It's PINKKKKK - screams of true terror screams heard through the house...


are you bleeding Beck? Oh my god Beck your head.. its


Calm down what hap... Wait I gotta stop laughing - ph shit Beck your whole entire

Its was supposed to work, Jessie is so going to dieeeeeeee, oh my god its pinkkk

Beck what exactly - can I see the dye package maybe there is a way to reverse

package thrust at me as she whimpers

Um beck this is a package of Tropical Cherry Koolaid - see the Koolaid man - where is the... Oh shit - you didn't

I didn't;t have any money and Jessie read in Teen Beat you could use Koolaid to

My guffaws as I roll on the floor having collapsed drown out her string of curses

Her entire scalp not just hair was like this funky salmon bright pinky pink - and you could see her pink scalp too - and it took a week before most of it came out -


ROTFLMAO for a very long time and still to this day

flash back done

Hooray got teeth cleaned -

orthodontist may not yell at me when I go in for next adjustment - although the sucky thing that keeps the water down as they clean kept clogging and feel out spraying us a few times and she kept telling me to close my mouth around it so it could suck out my tonsils and I personally was wishing it was someone trying to suck out my tonsils not this tube - lol plus the special treatment they do now cause of the braces is NASTY - it is baking soda and salty and it feels like a sand blaster and also chaps my lips really bad and hurts the lips and dries them out for the day more than the teeth/gums - not that I need to worry about dry lips as I have no one to impress with said lips - sigh and lol

Hooray got laundry done and caught up

Hooray got schedule printed for work and some work done on presentation for next weeks conference (Effective ways to use powerpoint - which will be fun case I get to make a really bad powerpoint presentation - reallllllllllllllllyyyyyyyy bad - like music blaring neon yellow and stuff flying in and out and all over the place - a damn lot of fun)

Hooray got through some of movie Pieces of April - there is something about watching a poor couple trying to cook a turkey and dropping it on the floor, stuffing it with everything but the kitchen sink and the like that just makes me wanna be a vegetarian - lol

okay off to have funny doing... work - hehe

I have been trying to do the right, nice thing... i think I am failing... death, despair, the cancer and shit are winning.. trying to stay more in the mndset like my last posts... but I am a bit worried here... not for me, for her... I found myself, my cente even if it is not where I want it (hence the three strikes title cause you all know what comes next in that saying).... but I actually am ok with that just upset with this tangled web.. it si soooo, I can;t see the start point anymore - lol but the end point is starting to scare me

Just a Weekend

Well had an ok weekend - too short kinda but when is it not (well I suppose if you work, or have a horrible family reunion to attend too or get into it with some skanked out ho who is trying to steal your boyfriend/girlfriend... not that I have to worry about the last or prolly ever will...)

But Saturday was ok - taught my lab in the morning - we did shorelines and beaches - aka why those idiots buying million dollar plus homes in California and here along NJ shore are idiots and throwing their money away and why people Wildwood laughing their asses off as Ocean City and towns North of WW spend millions of tax dollars to pump sand onto the beaches that is swept away by nature and deposited guess where - Wildwood - LMAO - hehehehe - wait I pay taxes although I do not live in a shore town - yet somehow some of my taxes still go to beach replentishment.... oh FUBAR

Anyway after lab a person from work, her son's school 4-8th grade puts on a musical every year and his babysitter was in it - plus it is his school (a catholic one) so she invited me and the three of us went to see

Dear Edwina - which was actually really good -I was laughing and the music was not bad

Then we went to a volunteer Firehouse because they were having a fundraiser spaghetti dinner and some of her students (she teaches special ed, English and Career Exploratory) were working there.

Then went home and watched Dogma and found mixing Mike's lemonade, Barcardi Green Apple and Orange Vodka is not bad but makes for a bitch of a time typing on the computer - lol nice and tasty and spinny though - I like the fruity tasting crap the best - :-D

Sunday was pretty routine - got to sleep a couple of hours and got up (yeah no headache or hangover just a little tired) and did some errands and then work around the house - ahhhhh sparkly oven - lol

Need to watch the Pieces of April movie still I rented (I rented the three and have one left - lol) I got it cause it looked funny and stars Katie Holmes which I selected for one of my characters - but not the Dawson's Creek character image for my character - want the rougher, edgier Katie - hehe - this movie looks funny and like it might have more of that type of character

Plus nice reason to go see new Batman Movie

Speaking of which I WANNA SEE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE - damn busy schedule - maybes Thursday...

Trying to decide if I wanna get tickets for the Warped Tour - it comes in August - never done a festival type thing like the Warped Tour, but they have some bands I'd like to see.....

Lots of meetings, workshops (Teaching how to use the smartboard to teachers) and Monday stuff for work - plus need to grade meteorology tests - I am not sure I wanna do that... ok I will do it... later... after awhile, in a bit, around the corner, if I stall long enough maybe someone ping me and distract me... PING ME PEOPLE, distraction.. hmm maybe I go clean the oven again - okay that is just badddddddd -

I love procrastination - when that feeling/attitude was invented, the world finally balanced - j/k
