I think hisnamewasbeanni should write me a haiku.

Hey there PPT
Beanni didn’t write you one
We’re better than him

Hey there the Mrs
(And Pablo as well I guess)
You guys can suck it

That was very rude.

How rude you may ask, good sir?
Very very rude.

And the battle begins!

I fully reject
This manipulation of
Your two followers

Whoa whoa whoa hold up.
That’s the mayor of tumblr. 
Just ask her father.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!

Power corrupts one


Absolute power corrupts


One absolutely

I see what you did.

There, there clever boy. There, there.

Do not fear power. 

Beanni just called me
corrupt. You are dead to me

Beanni. No mas Beanni.

Hi! I hope you don't mind me asking: how your South Beach Diet is going? I have found your updates to be very inspirational; I'm thinking of trying that diet as well.

It is still going well.  I gained a few lbs once I switched to Phase 2, which is to be expected since a lot of what you lose in Phase 1 is water weight.  I actually expected to gain back much more.  But I have also stayed down in the inches I lost.  Phase 2 is much more “doable,” but I find myself much more tempted since I’m not under the confines of Phase 1 if that makes sense. 

Also, I think South Beach works best with regular exercise.  I’ve been having some back and foot problems unrelated to the diet that have caused me to skip out on exercise more than I’d like — but have to to avoid an injury.  I will feel better once I get back to jazzercise.

I go back to Florida in a little less than a week and the jazzercise places in my area don’t mesh with my work hours.  Currently, I’m looking into local aerobic classes or gyms so that I can keep this up.

We have a new Rec/Community center that is halfway between where I work and live (and my commute is under 8 minutes) so I’m hopeful to do some classes after work with come co-workers who will help keep me accountable on the exercise thing.  I also know a group of gals that do Zumba after work hours in a classroom once a week, so I may join in on that until the community center opens. 

Thanks for the question.  I haven’t been posting as much mostly because I don’t want to bore people, but am happy to answer questions!

We love you, Weird Al. ‘Cause you’re weird. And you love parodies. And so do we so we parodied your face with breakfast food.

On the Path to Equity: Improving the Effectiveness of Beginning Teachers | Alliance For Excellent Education

Roughly half a million U.S. teachers either move or leave the profession each year—attrition that costs the United States up to $2.2 billion annually. This high turnover rate disproportionately affects high-poverty schools and seriously compromises the nation’s capacity to ensure that all students have access to skilled teaching, according to this Alliance report.

"And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard."
