I hope to read 50 books in 2008. Here is what I have read so far:
March 24 was the 365th and last day of the year in many European implementations of the Julian calendar.
Each Easter season, Americans buy more than 700 million Marshmallow Peeps, shaped like chicks, as well as Marshmallow Bunnies and Marshmallow Eggs, making them the most popular non-chocolate Easter candy.
Mom and Dad took off for Easter and left me home alone, so I am doing Mom’s list for today. Since she has told you all sorts of things about her, I thought I would tell you about me.
Things I like to do:
Cats are the sleepiest of all mammals. They spend 16 hours of each day sleeping.
I watch entirely too much TV. I will admit that. And yet…
I have very distinct memories of watching certain shows when I was a kid.
Today is the official first day of spring. Spring is my favorite season. It contains several of my favorite events:
I also love the change in weather.
in Just- spring when the world is mud- luscious the little lame balloonman whistles far and wee and eddieandbill come running from marbles and piracies and it's spring when the world is puddle-wonderful the queer old balloonman whistles far and wee and bettyandisbel come dancing from hop-scotch and jump-rope and it's spring and the goat-footed balloonMan whistles far and wee -- e. e. cummings
Common date of the Equinox. In astrology, March 21 the day of the Equinox is the first full day of the sign of Aries. It is also the traditional first day of the astrological year; and International Astrology Day.
We are watching last Thursday’s LOST. It was a Sun and Jin episode. There was a sweet little scene with them on the beach talking about getting ready for the baby. Jin suggests they talk baby names, but Sun says it is bad luck. I don’t know that it could be bad luck if you aren’t pregnant.
Names I like for our yet-to-be-conceived baby. I am not going to tell you which one we have actually chosen for our first born.
Girls names are too easy. I just keep thinking of them. There are many ladies in our family that we would like to honor.
Boys names have not been as easy. There are lots of names that I like, but they either don’t go well with our last name or I have had a student with that name that was a problem.
A 22-year-old kid is sent to a maximum security prison for larceny. Benefiting from a cliché often found in prison stories, he ends up with an older, veteran cellmate who takes a liking to him and helps him get acclimated to prison life.The first night in the cell block, the kid hears something strange. Other prisoners are calling out numbers in the darkness.”Sixteen!”All the prisoners laugh, except for the new kid.
And so on. The kid asks his cellmate to explain what everyone’s laughing at.
“Well, at night, we’ve got nothing better to do than to tell jokes.”
“But they’re not jokes. They’re just numbers.”
“That’s all you know. Thing is, we’ve all been here so long that we’ve heard all each other’s jokes so often that we’ve memorized them. So rather than tell the whole joke again, we’ve numbered ’em all. Now we just remind each other of the joke by calling out the number.”
So the kid calls out, “Eleven!”
The entire cell block erupts in almost hysterical laughter.
Then the guy in the next cell calls out, “Fifteen!” Crickets.
The kid asks, “What happened?”
His cellmate answers, “That guy never could tell a joke.”
That is one of my all time favorite jokes. Just the line “That guy never could tell a joke.” can crack me up. And…sadly, it is reminiscent of me, I never remember the whole joke (unless it is short), but punchlines…I can do punchlines.
