Last night my DH and I went to see the new Star Trek movie. The movie was really good and my only negative comment is that Uhura’s character was a bit sappy. I took some yarn along and cast on a plain sock while we waited for the previews to start.
No, we didn’t bring the communicator or badges, they were only used for the photo. However, there were people there dressed in Star Trek costumes. I really wanted to take a picture, but I was afraid of making someone angry. The babysitter survived the night unscathed too!
This morning the girls and I went to several garage sales where this treasure was discovered. I sure hope the batteries run down soon. Who ever thought up the idea of a singing trout anyway?
There are 25 school days left in the year! Normally I refrain from discussing students, but as no names will be given I’m going on a rant. I’ve worked with student X all year long. Throughout the year student X has been disrespectful, rude and disruptive. This student talks back, lies and physically hurts other students without remorse. On Thursday X hit me in the face twice while pretending to “raise his arm” to answer a question. The third time in as many minutes that X’s fist came towards my chin I caught it with my hand and told this student to “Never hit me again.” Of course the student feigned innocence. Then on Friday X wouldn’t answer or respond to me when I spoke and this student also refused to follow directions. I walked away and went to work in another classroom. X had adult supervision and was not left alone. Had I stayed I probably would have screamed. There is not enough money in the universe to be treated this way, especially by a student that you’re trying to help. The guardians of said child believe that everyone except the child is to blame. Anyway, I’m hoping to make it through the rest of the school year without incident. I found these mutated clovers while weeding. Maybe they’ll bring some luck.
Do any schools out there still practice corporal punishment?
