Random!

I'm not sure what to make of some of the advertising over here. I mean, is this really the best Princess Cruise Lines could come up with? For the banner ad on the NY Times website?? Really?!? It looks like Captain Steubing from the Love Boat, only less suave and more bald. For the banner ad?!?! Really??


I just started watching the Amazing Race and .... uh.... this has got to be the craziest bunch of couples they have ever put together. I can't wait to see how the self-described "Zen in the 'hood" yoga couple implode. ;) Yes, I am evil like that. [Note: Unbelievable. That couple just got eliminated 12 minutes into the first episode! I can really pick 'em, huh? My new pick for fabulous blow-out are the Poker Chicks.]

Mean teachers really suck. I am not only ready to complain to the principal about my son's teacher, I am thisclose to wanting to go in and slap her across the face with a pair of leather gloves. Wait. Make that a fish:

If my son comes home crying one more time because she has been unnecessarily and/or inexplicably rude to him, there is a trout out there with her name on it. Harumph.

A certain somebody offered me a sincere apology, along with full acknowledgment of past shortcomings, regarding their behavior and lack of support that was offered when I was attempting graduate school over the last couple years. Without naming names, those of you who have been reading a long time will know of whom I speak. You will also know that the past year has been tough, not just because of the move and fear of the unknown, but because I had to spend a lot of time healing and burying a lot of resentment and anger and resetting my expectations on what I'm going to do with my life. I cannot tell you how much it means to me that this person finally understands how I felt. And can doubly appreciate what I do for this family.

This cracks me up:

What cracks me up more? That I did my first search for this clip not in YouTube, like I had intended, but on eBay. And was all like "wtf?!" when it pulled up zero matches. I bet if I had looked it up on American eBay, instead of the UK one, I would've found something pretty interesting. Something like this, maybe?


Yeah.... I am totally getting some of those.









Go check out the awesome, uber-cool Un-Mom, Keely. She hosts this spewing mental meltdown every Tuesday and she will totally go all Mexican Midget wrestler on your ass if you don't like it.

  2. I cannot believe you are seriously considering bitch-slapping a fish with leather gloves. What has the fish done to deserve that?!

  3. Is she rude to all the kids or just your newbie. I would bring it up with the other parents and find out what her deal is. Then you can flash her your lucha keys.

  4. Maybe that teacher doesn't like Yanks. We did, after all, kick butt with the Brits about 230 years ago. Maybe she holds a grudge. I think bitch slap is in order.

    or maybe sic the Mexican Midget Wrestler on her.

  5. I would suggest talking to the teacher. Then, if she's rude to you, use the BIG fish. Also, I can't get the picture out of my mind of the Gene Simmons and a miniature white Power Ranger doing battle.

  9. Yes, sounds like your son's principal needs a serious fish(bitch) slapping. Ummmm, does she know just WHO she's messing with????

  10. Sometimes Monty Python is all that can be said about that... my son had a evil wench teacher one year. In one of his first classes with her, she mangled his first name. He told her 'it's spelled 'XYZ' but it's pronounced Warbler Mangrove.' Unfortunately she saw little humor in that. It might work for your son however.

  11. Don't wait for one more time to go in and smite the teacher with the fish.

  12. Great RTT. Send the Wrestler after the teacher

  13. I wonder why the apology now? hmmm... can you volunteer in her class or just sit in to observe? I like to see for myself and if that doesnt work ..opt for secret recording's of the bitch (duct tape to your angel "s body) then approach principle with evidence *Y* Xp

  16. Amy, you have to step on that teacher. The English can be arseholes when it comes to discipline. Don't think for a minute there's any of the political correctness that Americans will show. Get on it. NOW.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'll go further and say that the uptight bitch possibly hates Americans. Watch it. Lots of British do. If she does, your boy is a target. Again: get on it. NOW.

  18. I love it when Braja takes charge. Sounds convincing to me.

    I love the opportunities this change has provided you (bitch teacher and tech troubles not withstanding)
