This will be my last post for a long while (at least by my standards); we'll be moving later this morning, and won't have Internet access for a few days.
We got done with VBS yesterday. I need to explain one of the shticks of the week; when the key concept of the day was stated, the kids were supposed to shout "Eureka!"
Here's where you can tell I've been at this too long. Where did we get another California earthquake yesterday? Eureka!
On the more serious side, I did get to use the video I was showing to talk about forgiveness with the kids, and seems to be hitting a chord with quite a few of them.
How do we caption this picture from the EU Summit?
"Go easy on Jacques, hun. Not only did the EU die, but his pet hamster did, too."
It isn't quite dead yet, but the UK doesn't want to be the EU's sugar daddy. Even the rather Eurocentric BBC keeps running a "Net Givers and Takers" chart, showing the UK, even with their precious rebate, as the #2 net giver. They are playing budget hardball; if this were baseball, the benches would have been cleared twice.
Is this the first movie with a blog as part of the plotline? The Perfect Man's not normally the kind of movie I'd research, but I wandered into a dead tree review of the movie in the Free Press, where they mentioned that the Duff character had a "online diary." I'd prefer "online journal," but that's not a bad description of a blog to the cyberclueless, especially for a teen girl's amusings.
"Al Qaeda #2 Urges Violence"-Shucky darns, I was expecting him to invite us over for a big ol' pig roast and sing Kumbaya instead. That's just so out of character.
Phat. Pee-aych-ay-tee. Phat.
Well, at least things are changing from previous spelling challenges there.
