I'm about to go on a tangent...be warned. I am about to talk about some rappers who have like 3000 times more money than me so don't feel bad if you have no idea who or what I am talking about...just look at the pictures, nod your head and smile:)

Did you hear that rapper T.I got busted again for a drug charge only a few months after being released from jail. T.I. might be the only rapper that I openly admit to liking because he is too cute and makes angry motivational songs that make me "buck my chest and throw gang signs in the car" on my way to work. Plus, he looks awesome in a suit and has no tattooes which I admire only because that goes against the grain of the look of a typical hip-hop artist. Bla bla bla...yadi yadi ya...I like him.

(I spotted someone watching me as I was taking these pics)
But dude, come on. You just got out of jail and you have the number one movie of the week! Why do people with talent and money find ways to screw it up? Meanwhile I'm poor and can't sew, hum, scratch a record or bake a cupcake without calling the fire department and I've managed to stay out of trouble. Geesh! And his woman was busted with him. They are taking this Bonnie and Clyde way too  far.

*raises hands and drops the mic*

End scene. No judgement zone back in full effect.

In completely unrelated yet wholesome news, one of my students surprised me with my favorite cookies today! DOUBLE STUFF Golden Oreos! I may have mentioned in class a time or two that Golden Oreos make me happy. We've been doing "getting to know you" activities and I told my classes that Golden Oreos are a major food group according to my personal food pyramid.

 In 1st period, kids kept asking me if I had seen Juan* yet and I kept looking at them like they were crazy. Juan* finally came to class and he had a bag of Oreos to give me. He even told me that he bought it with his own money! How cute is that!?!?

Needless to say Juan* earned the class the right to listen to music during class. I'm ashamed that I accept cookies instead of the typical "teacher" apple...but not ashamed enough  to give the cookies back:)

*His name isn't really Juan*

What is up with that? What is the appeal of drugs? I just don't get it. And do you know that some of the babies I work with don't even think marajuana is a DRUG. Seriously. They think that it is ok to sell or ok for their dad to sell or WHOEVER because it isn't really a drug. How did that happen to us? What can we do to change it.

I have never had a golden oreo. Ever in my life. That is surprising since I have had just about every other kind of sugar known to man kind.

LOVE those shoes.

Love you forever if you come over and leave some nice comment love for the sweet photographer I interviewed this week. I always feel so bad when my photographer interview girls don't get a lot of comments because it is scary to put themselves out there like that. Do you know what I mean? Of course : )

I love that student that brought you a treat. Juan is a real sweetie! Happy weekend. Enjoy your 3 days off! Kaishon is starting school on MOnday. I am not dealing well with him growing up so much. Not well at all.

I love that denim shirt. The one I want costs $58... hmmm, not in the budget right now.

That outfit is adorable. I love how high you wore the skirt. Don't worry, I too tell my kids that the way to my heart is with dark chocolate, but maybe that's because I'm really picky about my apples.

GIRL! I WAS TOO THROUGH WITH T.I.!!!

THANK YOU!!!

I saw Takers twice last weekend, even braved going to the theater to see it with this bedbug craze, and this fool and his wife (I love them as a couple) go and do the DUMBEST THING POSSIBLE!

WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM??!!!

Here I am telling everyone he has a great career in film and he goes and gets arrested...AGAIN...FOR DRUGS!

*Sigh*

BTW, I love that long skirt. You know I'm going to be on a search for one! LOL!

This T.I. situation makes me want to donkey kong him. (Prior to his marriage, if he was 6 inches taller, I would've moved to Atlanta to stalk him properly) I can't imagine having whatever it takes to be sucessful in rap and continually crapping on it as if it's not wanted. Meanwhile, my trash guy wanrs to be a rapper (he gave me his mixtape for Christmas) and can't catch a break. *sigh

And if one more person makes Free T.I. their Facebook status, I'm setting something on fire!

Corie said...

I have no words on the T.I. issue (shaking my head).

Now your outfit is too cute! Now I want a denim shirt...haven't seen one though.

Alissa said...

Good Job Juan and that skirt is so cute.

I miss my bribing teacher days. I still have 30 coffee cups that students over the years brought me. I loved them all. What about Paris Hilton and her cheap self..."That's not my purse with the drugs!" She and T.I. should date.

Mish Dish said...

I love this denim plaid number on you. Oh, and I'm with ya on the T.I front. He's got the golden lottery ticket. What is he thinking? xo Mish

Sunny said...

If only you would've stomped and yelled "SEXUAL CHOCOLATE" while dropping the mic. lol


I agree 10-fold with you on this T.I. thing... if you haven't yet, you must see Takers!

How sweet is your student??? It shows he was listening. I love it~!

Delurks to tell you how much I like your blog and how funny I think you are. I also like the yellow square with the outfit deets.

Either weed should be legal or alcohol shouldn't.

Despite my feelings about weed, I don't smoke and I don't think a convicted felon should be dumb enough to smoke. Just drink like the rest of us law abiding citizens and call it a day.
