Today I went and searched the Bellingham Public Library for our new book. They don't have it yet (sadness). What they do have is a great collection of books available for those who search for titles that begin with 'Best American'. Here are some of them;
*Best new American Voices 2009 *Hana-Kimi: for you in full blossom *Best American Gay Fiction *The baby boomer's song book: 65 hit songs! *The best American erotic poems : from 1800 to the present *Don't fill up on the antipasto: Tony Danza's father-son cookbook : with memories of an Italian-American family and 50 of their best recipes *The Best American crime reporting 2008 * Car Talk. Field Guide to the North American wacko! * The Best of American Dream Homes (Kris, is your new home in here?)
Okay, as I kept scrolling down to find titles to add on here, I saw the book but they only have it in Lynden or Deming and neither of them are in ... damn Gina.
Hurrah for the BL Blog!!! And hurrah for Giant Pencils! Last week in the middle of my class I pulled out the GIANT PENCIL for taking notes! It was quite hilarious, and the professor warned me that "Just because I have a bigger pencil, it won't make me smarter" Whataver. I got one of the highest scores on our exam.
I am also taking a Greek Mythology class which is awesome. Did you guys know that Aphrodite was born not only from Zeus, but also from the genitals of Uranus after he was castrated and they were thrown into the ocean. Pretty useful information, and I think Greek mythology should definitely be considered for our book club.
And in other also importante news, Lawrence and I are purchasing a home. We close Nov. 21st. So I think a BL partay in Ferndale is definitely in store if you guys are up for it!
Oh my land. I just noticed the BL of the month! I am so honored. Here is my speech:
"Holy mother of literacy and cobwebs! I am shocked, SHOCKED, to be earning this award. I want to thank God and Harry Potter and Don and the people who invented alcohol and words. Oh my, oh my, I want to eat a pie.
I am in the land of despairity ... the land of no internet at home. Paradise City has not not had internet (yes I just used a double negative) for over two years. Too bad I'm a teacher that works on weekends and Comcast's stupid schedule of either 8-12 or 12-4 monday through saturday does not work for me. Boo you Comcast.
My HLP whom happens to be residing in Califorina right now sent me this wonderful like to this wonderful product Bacon Salt! Not only is this the best thing to happen to me in quite some time, I now have a favorite blog, sorry Nicole, Kelly, Lynn, Lindsey, and all of those other blog-tastic blogs, you have been beaten by BACON!
I was going to blog about my wonderful free interenet experience at Woods and all of the memories it has sparked in my brain, but instead I got utterly facinated with another great form of one of my favorite foods, bacon.
I took up E-thomps' suggestion on reading banned books from that list she posted. I read A Day No Pigs Would Die, which was good, but sad because I had no BL's to discuss the book with. Sad. Go read it and tell me what you think, seriously it costs like $5 and took one day to read, plus as an added bonus, you will read all kinds of fun mid-western idioms like:
- Cleaner than a cat's tongue - Eviler than sin on a Sunday morning - More confusing than a pig in a poke
Lots more, I promise, I didn't even write down the funniest ones.
Lynn beat me too it, a blog about food. I bet she beat me to it because her arms are waaaaay longer than mine.
I know I have a bit of a sweat problem in this picture, but look at one-eyed Lynn, thats besides the fact though.
It is true that teachers learn from their students. I will openly admit that today, I learned something from one of my students and it was this; how irresitably delicious and healthy these are. They are the perfect after school snack for me as I relax after school and need something to hold me over until after my strenuous work-out and I can make myself something a tad bit more delish and of more substance or value. They are a wonderful replacement for my previous addiction to Powerthirst.
Does anybody else absolutely love all the food scenes that seem to be so prevalent in young adult/children's lit books? They totally made me want to eat things that I would never have actually eaten, because I was a picky, picky child.
I have recently fallen in love with Anderson Cooper . Talk about sexy older man, how I would love to brush my hand through his sliver hair that sits attop his intellegent brain...
Anyhow, it was love at first sight when I saw Andy on funny lady Kathy Griffin's show 'My Life on the D List'. If you aren't in love with him yet now you will be . But really, I am more in love with Andy Coops after watching his coverage on the debates and the upcoming election. I especially love him for airing a highlight section on his show about Sarah Palin in which I found out about this. Make sure you have the volume up on your computer folks, its classy and I laughed my ass off.
Booyah I am the first one to swear on the BL blog.
"Kelly, what else do we need to complete these fish tacos?" my roommate Scotty Too Hotty asked me.
"Corona," I responded, matter-of-factly. [How the h is "factly" a word?]
"Yeah!" he squealed.
So I put on jeans (I was wearing only a tube top. The rest of me was naked) (psych, I was working work pants) and my Better Lovers hoodie.
This is where it gets good.
"Oh, Heavens!" I gasped to myself. "I live near my students now. Will they see me and read our clever slogan and spread rumors about their Humanities teacher's sluttiness?" What a conundrum. What a motherfucking, fatherblowing conundrum.
I decided to wear it anyway, and I saw a student, but he didn't see me.
