It's Been Too Long...

Hey everyone -

I have been quite the slacker when it comes to posting.  Honestly, my system for documenting awesome moments kinda failed last year.  That and ASB was keeping me really busy.  However, you my loyal fan(s?) (love you, Mom!) have been asking when new moments will be posted.  I had no idea that you all really read this thing.  Awesome. 

I do have more moments from last year that I'm going to post, and the new school year is right around the corner.  Look for updates in the near future.  Enjoy the rest of your summer!

ECMOA for the Week of May 25 - June 5, 2009

It has been well established that I am a slacker. However, I promise to post the rest of last year’s moments this weekend. I’ve also been piling up the moments for this year.


We’ll start things off with a little Romeo & Juliet.

“See? They use a rope ladder. It is just like using her hair.”
- this particular student was convinced that R&J was just like Rapunzel.

While looking at a picture in the textbook from the 1963 version of the movie:
Student #1: “This is like a horror movie.”
Havig: “Oh, the picture?”
Student #1: “There’s a squid in that jar.”
Havig: “No, that’s just the liquid spilling over.”
Student #2 to Student #1: “What is wrong with you?!”

When Juliet “dies” and Romeo visits her tomb to die by her side:
Student #1: “How can that not tell she’s not dead? You just have to listen to their stomach.”
Student #2 “Their stomach?”
Student #1: “Y’know, their breastal region.” (said while circling his hand over his breastal region)

“You said that Lady Montegue died of grief, but really she was assassinated by ninjas.”

“That’s a lot of suck.”
- on the ending of R&J

“Jesus loves you, so it’s okay.”
- reasoning that it would be more logical for Friar Laurence to kill Juliet instead of sending her to a nunnery.

Student #1: “So it’s like the Prince and then Safeway and Fred Meyer.”
Havig: “Exactly.”
Answering another student’s question about who rules Verona and how the two families fit in.

Vocab moments:
“When I wrote it down, I wrote turdious.”
- instead of tedious

At some point I appointed a student (student #4) to be my minion and told her how she had to do my bidding. Later in the semester, minion was one of their vocab words. For their vocab assignments, they draw a picture to help them remember the word.
Student #1: “I drew a picture of Student #4 for minion.”
Student #2: “So did I!”
Student #3 “Me too!”

Other freshman moments:
Student #1: “Why would you eat raisins when you could eat chocolate?”
Student #2: “Why don’t you like raisins?”
Student #1: “They’re disgusting and taste like old lady.”

“Don’t, or I will punch you in the face. Twice.”
- one girl jokingly to another about the second girl putting her hair up.
