funny*subbing*moment numero...???...

so yesterday,
in the second grade that i subbed in,
i was teaching them about the flag.
we talked about the stars:
how there's 50 now, because the U.S. has 50 states,
and
how the first flag had only 13 stars,
because in the beginning of America, there were only 13 states.
***
simple enough.
easy enough.
***
the funny part came
when I posed the question:
*
"What do you think the 13 red and white stripes symbolize?"
*
and
little Ian Tau, uncertain,
answered:
*
"The blood of Jesus Christ?"
***
***
Haa haa!
wrong subject, buddy, but good guess.
***
happy last*day*of*sept!!
YESSS!!!

*BIG*hair*

i have big hair, people.
it's wavy/frizzy/curly
and when I let it go natural,
I always look like a brunette, bohemian, grungy Carrie Bradshaw
***
it gets pretty wild.
***
so, my last post was about
my *teacher-hair* where i wore
my hair back in a tight, professional bun.
I wore my hair like that Thursday,
subbing in a 3rd grade class.
I subbed in the same school
--in the same 3rd grade class--
the next day,
but wore my hair down and natural.
yep. my big hair...down.
[it was a different look to them,
to say the least]
***
well...
...this 3rd grade boy walks
up to me,
opens his eyes wide,
and goes,
"Miss Zampelli, your hair looks like it blew up!
It looks like World War II is going on in there!"
***
thanks, Diego.
thanks.
***
happy **Saturday/Sunday**, porkchops.

note to my homework

**i know 'your' should be 'you're' but hey, i got it off weheartit, okay?!?!
i hate college.
next to the word 'sham' in the dictionary meaning "something that is not what it purports to be; a spurious imitation; fraud or hoax" should be the words: see college.
***
college, you sneaky bastard, you don't fool me.

"...however do you want me, however do you need me..."

i feel like the title of this post is addressed to God.
yesterday i proclaimed
that i needed to get
"...back to life, back to reality..."
as in this song
***
***
i thought of the phrase,
then listened to the song
about four times,
and realized "Holy shit, yes!"
It is addressed to God & the Universe and my current state of being.
***
***
it took me 'til yesterday
-- the 20th day of Sept --
to accept that it's Sept,
and that
SuMMeR 2010 is definitely
just memories now.
***
***
i'm game to get back to reality,
in the form of:
subbing the for the next three days,
reading and researching and writing a 25-page thesis to focus on,
getting serious about the restaurant biz and making extra dough, or getting the F***OUT...
***
...and all in the mix I'm thinking of
how to construct my Halloween costume,
being a bridesmaid to my best girlfriend,
her birthday,
my birthday,
eating right,
exercising,
caring for the *babies*,
being a good girlfriend,
creating a new template/title/awesome-focus for my 2011 blog,
adapting to the colder and colder weather,
what I need to do to sign up for even MORE school after this semest [seriously kill me],
getting a new iPhone [where's the white one, people??!!]
and
clothes clothes and more clothes.
[that last one calms me down.
like really and truly, outfit-planning is my escape.
am i alone in this???]
***
***
oh, universe!
however do you want me?
in this state of *coo-coo, coo-coo*ness?
***
***
if so,
then this
is
my
PLAN of ACTION:
preferably
wit'
***
i love those guys.

*south*fla* recap - Part 2 - [date night] KEY*WEST

after two days with the Grams,
we left and headed south for Key*West:

**
longggggggg stretch of road
***
**
*
we arrived!!
[4 hours later]
***
**
*
my Key*West attire:
***
**
*
first stop upon arriving:
crib.
***
the style...
...was like that of the house at the end of *Away We Go*
***
**
*
outside Hemingway's second-story bedroom
was a balcony that wrapped around the house
...and was surrounded by lush palm-tree forest.
***
**
*
*thumb*cats were everrrywhere:
it was said Hemingway himself had about
40-60 of these *thumb*cats roaming around.
weeeeeeeiiiiirrrrrrdddd.
***
**
*
i'll stick to my normal-toed *babies*,
thanks very much.

i'm hiding behind the Jurassic-Park-like shrubbery
***

**

it was interesting, Mr. H.
***
gotta get back on my mope, though.
sorry, dude.
we mopeded to...see what's at the end of the block?
in the left hand corner?
***
it's:
the southernmost point!
[although, honestly...we didn't really think that. we just didn't.]
***
**
*
then,
we chowed down @ Alonzo's
***
stupid sign if you ask me.
***
**
*
me & my mojito, always & forever.
***
him & his,
