Let's post funny things here! Something that made you chuckle or lifted your spirits.

I'll start.
Last night we were at a 2 yr. old's birthday party. We knew about 1/3 of the people there. A young couple with a toddler enters the room. The little boys sees my dad sitting on the couch. His face lights up and he runs to my dad and lands in his lap. He is so happy to see him. Now dad is not a lovey dovey type of person, but this boy snuggles right up to him. Apparently grandpa, who is sitting on the other side of the room, looks a lot like my dad. They both wear hats and have white mustaches. Eventually the boy realizes that his grandpa is across the room and goes to him. It happens 3 more times through the night.

Apparently my boys (remember I teach an all-boy class) have debates at the lunch table almost every day. Often someone who has duty will come by and tell me what they have debated on that particular day. Sometimes they get very animated and involved in their discussion. I remind them about appropriate noise level in the cafeteria (and not standing up to talk to someone 5 seats down from you), and move on. It's actually quite funny what they carry from lessons into the discussion, or sometimes thoughts they had that were spurred from lessons. Below are some of the topics I have been informed of. Remember, they are 7 and 8 year olds.

During Red Ribbon week the discussion ended up being about whether there were good drugs or if all drugs were bad (think Tylenol, prescriptions, etc...). The same week they discussed their parents' drinking habits.

When studying fairy tales the boys debated about the rudeness of the Gingerbread Man and Goldilocks.

When beginning to write our Marine pen pal they debated which branch of the military was the best branch.

Two weeks ago they discussed the length of time you had to be in our classroom to not be considered a new student any more. We had just received our first new student that week.

This past week they discussed women's rights. This was spurred from studying about Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, and the fact that he went to a school where women can't attend.

Book Fair going on here this week...yesterday a Kindergartner bought a Star Wars Lego book. The book was about Yoda, but came with a Storm Trooper Lego. I said, "Oh, Storm Troopers are the bad guys." He said Storm Troopers are "cool." "But they're the bad guys!" I repeated. "Wouldn't a Yoda Lego be better?" He stood his ground, and continued to maintain the coolness of the Storm Trooper. Made me laugh.

I've been vetting LT reviews today, making sure they're legitimate reviews before pushing them to our library customers' catalogs. This snippet made me giggle:
"This book was beautiful and I very much enjoyed it. However, I feel the nuances were lost on me, like a rhinoceros playing with a robin's eggshell."

So there is clearly something about the LT font that makes the "m" look like an "r n" - it made me laugh when I saw that I'd been added to the 75 book challenge's list of readathoners for this weekend and they typed GlitterFe r n" for my name :) Might ask about getting that changed to "GlitterFemme" -- that doesn't look like "Fe r n r n e," does it??

I swear I'm turning the staff tag off after I post! I've also submitted my request to have the name changed... I'm sure Tim will get a kick out of that (if he sees it before someone else gets it, that is).

The TAG! I see the tag! I feel like I just spotted a rare bird!
GlitterFemme does look more like two m's. Funny how the mind can play tricks on what we see!
I would miss GlitterFern because thinking of glittery ferns makes me happy.
If you change the end to mmmme it looks like an caterpillar with a smiley mouth.

Okay, so basically someone Tweeted J.K. Rowling saying they'd love to get the Harry Potter story from Draco's perspective. This was her reply:



With the note "It would look a lot like this."

My little brother is worth many a chuckle, but the best ones are when he doesn't intend to be funny.  He traveled light, content to use whatever showering toiletries we had to offer.  While elbowing each other as we brushed our teeth, one morning, he informed me that my bodywash stinks.  This struck me as an impossibility since it is unscented.  Seriously, my husband and I use this stuff:



Toothbrush in mouth, I picked up the half-empty refill bottle, uncapped it, and squeezed the bottle a few times under his nose.

He smelled nothing and responded, "So you're telling me that I stink?"

Is there a point in showering if you smell like a bed of roses?

So our dogs always love the t-shirt ropes, and we have to replace them every one in a while. With Lily teething, we've had to replace them a little more often than usual. Mom's been saying for a few weeks that we need to make some more.

Yesterday I was folding t-shirts and putting them away in my bedroom when Lily pranced in, gently took the shirt out of my hand and pranced right back out. Luckily it was an old stained t-shirt. When I went in the living room to check on her, she was laying down on it. Now they have pretty blue ropes to play with.

The other day at dismissal time, a student named Juan was not in the correct place to be picked up. I was sent to go get him, telling the teacher in charge that I needed Juan. She says, "Which Juan?" and gives me a student. "No, that's the wrong Juan," I said. We both were giggling, but neither Juan knew why. :)

Thank you. I so needed some pirate talk today. It would have worked so well for keelhauling patrons coming in at the blooming end of the day with massive fines on their library cards.

Either that, or we need librarian ninjas.

I'd say we should do a ninja day theme, but invisible text would make site navigation pretty difficult.
