Maybe we got our drums from the side of the road, maybe we don’t practice as much as we should, maybe I only assembled my drumsticks an hour and a half before showtime (and they’re not even done yet), but we had a really good night as a band.
My students and I read some restaurant reviews today, in preparation for their latest essay assignment which requires them to write a review of a restaurant in town or on an exhibit in the campus museum. We stumbled across articles by the same author, who wrote in what we called “exalted, fancy language.” She used phrases like “scrupulously fresh” and “sassy lettuce rolls.” We just had to look her up.
“Oh, now it makes sense,” one of my students said. ”She looks like what she writes!”
Hello there. We hope your weekend is going well and that you enjoyed our mini games yesterday. That being said, it brings us great pleasure to announce that the Fall 2012 weeklong game will be October 1st- October 6th! Very soon, we will be giving out the link to our brand new website so that everyone can register to play. In the meantime, this video diary was found on campus…prepare yourselves as you see fit and good luck out there!
This was my FAVORITE book as a child! It’s about a princess named Elizabeth (that’s me!) who wanted to marry Prince Ronald. A dragon came and stole her prince and burned all of her clothing so she was forced to wear a paper bag (hence the title). Elizabeth chases the dragon and challenges him to completely an arduous task that ends up tiring him out, at which point she rescues her love. He tells her she isn’t pretty enough now that she’s not looking like a princess and she leaves his sorry butt and goes off to live her own life.
I think it’s incredibly empowering and a great message. I’d love to dress up as the Paper Bag Princess one Halloween!
