If you cross a buffalo with Corporal Klinger...

So I just got in to work, and was told that our other espresso bar machine just got called in for an error message. The first one got called in on Saturday and we’re still waiting for the part. It’s probably not befitting someone in my development position to cry.

I said I wasn’t going to, but then I discreetly sharpied names on the inside of 18 plastic eggs.

I had to call reinforcements to come up with more.  Mostly my parents, plus some friendly punmasters and other such beloved doofuses like myself.

Egg-gar, Eggwin, Eggwina, Scramblella, Shelldon, Shelly, Pegg, Megg, Gregg, Eggbert, Leggolas, Eggster, Fry, Chicky, Leggo, Humpty-Dumpty, Sunny, and Bob.

Every time I hit Bob I laugh until I’m in tears.  Because this is work and I’m an adult.

Thank you, I’m in public and now everyone here thinks I’m crazy or high. :p

Here’s the link for more information about the PS244 fundraising campaign

Here’s the link to the GIVE IT ALL TO ME Library Collection at OutofPrintClothing.com.

Check it out! The good folks dropped me a line about this project last week, and I’m happy to boost for Library Week.

So hey, #education…

I’ve been lucky enough to have libraries, even if they were little more than a closet full of books, in all the schools I’ve worked with or in over the last few years. In my opinion they’re nothing less than essential to students’ ability to learn freely.

Also, all of these are very cute, which is a fun bonus for scholastic fashionist@s.

Hey, labicycles, I feel like this might be up your alley.

My 3rd grade teacher once told me to read the books that are the the most damaged on the outside because you can tell by the damage its been read by a lot of people, and there’s usually a great story on the inside.
This advice hasn’t failed me yet.

i’m a third grade teacher & i’m *totally* stealing this - it’s genius. :)

I’m a high school teacher, and I’m definitely stealing it too!

This is just good advice. Everyone should steal this. And follow it.

"There’s a principle in game theory known as min-maxing, meaning that in any given system, behaviors will evolve that maximize gain for minimum effort. This means that a lot of thought has to be put in to bulletproofing a new system against min-maxing. Take the internet, for example. The designers of the internet thought it was going to be this wonderful open community. They were expecting it to be nothing but unicorns shitting rainbows. But in come the min-maxers with their spam, bot nets, and viruses."

A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.

"ooh!  a poor person in need of help!  i better make sure they get arrested!"  to me, that’s the issue that’s most troubling.  Apart from that, the statue, and the idea behind it, is one of the parts of Christianity that even a grouchy atheist like me has to admire…

It’s good to be reminded that some people have the right idea and take the right lessons. The existence of this statue surprises me, and that reminds me that I don’t always have the whole picture of an institution.
