FUN Friday


Let's have some fun!

Frank Caliendo is a very talented comedian. Here is one of my favorite clips of him (warning, it's a bit long):

Everyone has seen Will Farrell in The Landlord by now. But have you seen the outtakes? Oh the joys of working with small kids who have a mind of their own! She's so cute.

How many of you are afraid of Zombies? (Okay, I know you're thinking - this is FUN Friday and there is NOTHING fun about Zombies!) Well, never fear because the CDC has a page to help you prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse:


I was teaching 2nd Grade Kindness yesterday. We play a fun game where the kids pull items out of a bag and we have to decide if they are Kind or Unkind. If the item is kind, we have to decide who it would be kind to give it to (Bugs the Bunny, Harry the Hamster, Pip the Cat or Nemo the Chihuahua). If it's unkind, we toss it in the trash.

A girl pulled out milk. She held it up so everyone could see as she announced, "Milk."

Me: Is it kind or unkind?

Class: KIND!

Me: I know a lot of tv shows and movies show people giving milk to cats but it's not good for them. It's unkind. When they're kittens, where does their milk come from?

Class: MOM!

Me: And where does our milk come from?

Girl in the back row: CARTONS!

I do heart my job! Never a dull moment working with these kids. The funny stories get me through the sad ones.

I'm ready to start the weekend! We've got a long bike ride planned, a fun hike on the agenda...and I'm digging into the garage to finish the last of the organizing! Which may not sound like fun to you, but it is so much fun for me (minus the black widows, gotta keep our eyes open for those). And, of course, my Crit Girls always brighten up my Saturday night.

What about you - any big plans for the weekend?


  1. Girl in the back row is going to grow up to be awesome, you just know it. I may or may not be going out tonight, I have to finish The Name of the Wind today, and tomorrow I have two books to pick up from the library to read and review before my holiday in a week and a half. So not *huge* plans but should keep me busy-ish. Have a good (and active sounding!) weekend, Jennie.
    - Sophia.

  2. Haha great kid story!

    I'll be attending a fundraiser tomorrow night. Else should be a low-key weekend.

  3. Haha, our milk totally comes from cartons! Too cute!

  4. Cartons! Would she be shocked if she knew it was cows?

  5. LOL on the cartons story. Actually, a few years ago I babysitting a little girl and she asked me since white milk comes from white cows, then does chocolate milk come from brown cows? Kids can be so funny.

  6. Cartons! Hahahaha! So cute, and so true.

    This weekend? Not much going on here. I have zero energy. Am coming out of my flu but just feel totally wiped. Have a good weekend, Jennie!

  7. Cartons... *snort* Too funny. Yes! I saw that Zombie thing, and I enjoyed it very much. I don't care for zombies, but I like that the federal government is taking Hollywood serious for once. :D

    sigh this weekend was bananas. <3
