The Bunny Has Left The Building

I'm not really here anymore. Not posting, or updating this blog, I mean.
I was going to take it down, but my blog mentor suggested I leave it, so I can have a place to go back & see where I started, if I should so desire. So that's what I'm doing. Those of you who were a part of it - thanks. Anybody who landed here randomly - sorry to waste your time. Next blog. :-)

I Hate Change!

Found out today that my boss, who I have loved working with/for, is being moved to another job in the school district. Instead of being our Principal, he's going to be Director of something-or-other. And on top of that miserable change (yeah, I know - it's probably going to be a good change for him - just sucks for us!), we're also losing our Assistant Principal, who we all adore, and who was at our school when it opened... She's being moved to another middle school.
One of the teachers said it best; this is like losing both of your parents! :-(
I don't understand why the District moves people the way it does, without real reason...
Of the people we're getting as replacements, I have not heard great things about the Principal we're getting, so I'm just going to cross my fingers & do my job (and bite my tongue. A lot.)
The Assistant Principal we're getting is a better situation. She actually used to teach at our school, and I really like her. So at least we'll have her...
So, I'm not at all happy about losing the two people we're losing, and I'm not thrilled about one of the incoming people, and God, I hate changes!!! , but at least one of the newcomers is a good one. So that's that.

And A Fun Time Was Had By All...

Our school recently held a Talent Show. At first, when they were putting it together, even close to the day of the show, things weren't looking so great. We figured, what the hell - it's a middle school talent show - it doesn't have to be anything but fun.
But let me tell you - those kids pulled together a fantastic show - we have some very talented (and very brave!) students at our school! There was singing, there was dancing, there was even a mini fashion show. Very creative kids we have around here!
Some of the faculty even performed a band act for the finale - what a blast!
I hope that we will continue to have these shows at our school - it was such a great time (and I was just in the audience), we had a terrific turnout, and our kids should be very proud of themselves.
The teacher who did most of the work for this show deserves a standing ovation - she did a hell of a job!

A Sign of Age...

Hoo Boy! I was sharply reminded of my age recently, but it was still amusing. I think.
I've been talking to a high school student I know about computer/video games, and we've recommended some games to each other to check out. I, of course, told him all about Guild Wars, and the upcoming Factions campaign, and he told me to check out Black & White, which looks pretty cool.
Anyway, I saw him again yesterday, and asked him whether he had looked at Guild Wars. He said he had, and that he thought the graphics were great, and that "that game is sick"
Well, being a die-hard GW fan, I started to protest- "No, it's nohhh...oh. Sick is good, isn't it?"

Yup. Sick means it's awesome. And it also means I'm too old to understand the language. Bummer.

Just For Fun

My daughter came across a fun site, good for a little stress relief, and sent me a link to it, which I have since lost, but found plenty of links with the same game on them, so I'm sharing one of them with you. (Totally work safe - only turn your sound down if you play it). Have fun!

I am a A Crystal Dragon!

I took the Inner Dragon quiz and found out I am a Crystal Dragon on the inside:

In the war between good and evil, Crystal Dragons take the side of the noble and good....
When it comes to the powers of Chaos vs. those of Law and Order, your inner dragon tends to do things by the book. ...
As far as magical tendancies, Magical spells come as natural to the Crystal Dragon as breath from its body....
During combat situations, a true Crystal Dragon prefers to defeat opponents by the use of spells and other tactics....
Fun-loving and good natured, crystal dragons tend to be responsible rulers. They establish domains in the cold, open northern reaches, building castles out of snow and ice. They leave these castles open to the sky, for they love to watch the stars on clear, cold nights.'
Hatchlings have glossy white scales that become more and more translucent with age. By the time they reach adulthood, these scales become luminescent in moonlight. In the full light of the day they glow with a dazzling, almost unbearable brilliance.'
Like other benevolent dragons, the crystal dragons prefer to talk rather than fight. Even without special abilities, they can be charming and engaging to an extreme. Gems and metal ores are their foods of choice. A crystal dragon's breath weapon is a cone of glowing shards. The shards slice and cut those caught in the cone.
This Dragon's favorite elements are: Quartz, Ice, and Good Natures
