two days after jesus's

by new york standards it is past midnight. here in texas i still have 18 minutes or so. but in the grand scheme of things i am now 24. and yes, i am an age that is also the name of a popular tv show. go me.
*insert sound of party noise maker*
i might have some friends in town who will want to play with me. i definately have the entire third season of buffy now as well as plenty of movies to keep me occupied. who knows. dad said he might even share his good bourbon with me.

it was so funny they forgot to laugh

so i thought i was being really, really clever the other day when i was making up my final exam for my precious little students. i thought surely when they read the answer choices for this question at least ONE student will snicker. just a little bit. i was wrong.

so i submit to you, oh friendly blog readers, my favorite test question of all time.

Paleomagnetism is:
a.) a method of dating organic material
b.) a method of dating rocks using changes in the earth's magnetic field
c.) a method of studying paleoclimate
d.) the concept that paleontologists are very attractive

come on .... just a little bit funny?

it's in the cards...

You are The Moon

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.

The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out. alcohol! maybe this is one of those tarot double meanings.
