I'm a Bagel on a Plate Full of Onion Rolls.

Living Life to its Snarky Potential


USA, Michigan, USA

Public School
I teach history to high school students, because I like it actually. But sometimes I get the feeling that they are trying to destory my soul.

I have recently realized that my husband does not have very much respect for my creative talents.  When we met I was studying to be a professional performer, hopefully in musical theater.  When I met my husband I quit and changed college majors.  I now teach (oh the irony) and LOVE… Read full post »

Kanye, You Are Such A Douche

When I saw Kanye West pull a Joe Wilson on poor Taylor Swift, I wanted to go right over to my Mac Mini and delete every frakking album of his that is on there.


 Honestly, I don't think Taylor Swift is at all as good as Beyonce, but seriously.  When… Read full post »

I feel like I am a cliche right now.  I majored in music and theater in college and quit when I met my husband (and realized that I actually wanted a job and a career) and now I teach history to freshman and I LOVE it.  But I miss doing shows… Read full post »

I'm Michigan Skinny...

...which means I'm actually fat.  I has really dawned on me recently that I am a fat fatty fatterton.  How does that make me Michigan Skinny?  This is a phrase my oft-foot-in-mouth hubby used to describe me when we were in San Diego visiting his brother.  I had double Spanks (aka… Read full post »

We're Cheering for y0u Amy Poehler

Go Amy! Go Amy! 

The hubbie and I watched NBC's new documentary style comedy, Parks and Recreation starring Amy Poehler, with all of the anticipation a mother would watch their little chick perform in a piano or dance recital.  She worked so hard and we want her to be good.

So from the get-go,… Read full post »

I have a varied and particular list of "Sexiest Men Alive" and I am not going to include Hugh Jackman.  Even though it seems like it would be futile to make said list and not start off with my favoirite Aussie, Hugh's hotness is a little gratuitous at times.  Like he's… Read full post »

Who knew I could dread pink so much?

The dreaded pink slip. 

 A few weeks ago the assistant principal at the school I work at sat downt the entire staff and told us there was likley to be a 4-5 million dollar budget shortfall for the next academic year.  She was very upfront about it, in a positive manner and I give… Read full post »

Cold War Perspectives

Cold War Collage

I was looking at my vintage 70s era globe I still keep in my classroom and I thought about how different it is for me to teach about the Cold War than someone just a few years older than myself.  I think that teachers my age (post 1981) are going to… Read full post »

Apparently, I Am Pure Evil


I am trying to cram 2 chapters and a test in before spring break and it is bringing out a special type of whining in my classroom.  I assigned their regular homework and a 1 page personal narrative (sooooo easy), a test study guide (most of which we do in class… Read full post »

Day of Reckoning?

I gave my first test of the trimester (segment of a school year, not a pregnancy) and as usual, I haven’t the faintest idea how my little snowflakes have done.  It is generally hard to tell how a kid is going to do until you have actually tested them.  I have/… Read full post »

Every few months I stumbe on a ranting op-ed which expresses extreme distaste for "kids these days" and their over-indulgent parents. 

 I usually read on, amazed at old folks general dislike for all succesive generations, but then they have to go and say something I agree with:

''I don't kn… Read full post »
