Give me bread or give me death.

There's this thing at my school called music fest, which sounds way more rock band that it actually is (keep in mind by school from here on out and forever I mean elementary school). Each grade level prepares and performs two songs revolving around a theme. The performances are nearly two hours for two nights, and of course it's required for teachers to be there. The theme this year is "going green!" Sorry...I'm not on that bandwagon. I mean, I'm all about not trashing the planet and keeping it clean, but when a bunch of little kids start singing about holes in the ozone layer, I get a little squirmish (my mom would be proud- haha). Speaking of all that jazz, I'll go ahead and post this email that I got from probably one of only 10 republicans in California...

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had once failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan". All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A......

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy.

When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.
All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.

Could not be any simpler than that.

K so I don't want to be too political here, but that was too good to pass up. I completely wholeheartedly agree. Moving on. Back to me being at school from 8am-9pm for two days. Today I brought my Denise Austin 10 minute target toners DVD and most definitely shut my blinds, locked my door, and worked out in my classroom. Hah! I had this funny image in my mind of one of the janitors coming in and I'm like doing butt exercises...aye aye aye...fortunately that didn't happen.

Is it ironic to have Special K Protein Shake in the morning and a Kneaders cranberry duo chocolate cookie in the afternoon? Probably. I was thinking about what one of my "weaknesses" is...I was reading a friend's blog who can't "get off the coke" (being the drink). I definitely can't get off the carbs. I mean, chocolate is good too, but even more than that, give me BREAD! I did a low carb diet once...lost the lb's but man, not even worth it.

I can't believe it's nearly March...bring on Spring time and warm weather. BRING IT. Egh...I just thought about the time change though and that whole "spring forward" notion...not the best idea ever.

A really good idea? Bread. In all its varieties and wonderfulness.
