Random Ramblings

Just a few of my thoughts on the world around me

Winter Boots (Anyone who has ever dressed a child will love this)

Winter Boots

Did you hear about the teacher who was helping one of her
pupils put on his boots?

He asked for help and she could see why.

Even with her pulling, and him pushing,
the little boots still didn’t want to go on.

By the time they got the second boot on, she had worked up a sweat.

She almost cried when the little boy said,
‘Teacher, they’re on the wrong feet.’

She looked, and sure enough, they were.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t any easier pulling the boots off,
than it was putting them on.

She managed to keep her cool as, together, they worked to get the boots back on,
this time on the correct feet.

He then announced, ‘These aren’t my boots.’

She bit her tongue, rather than get right in his face and
scream, ‘Why didn’t you say so?’
like she wanted to.

Once again, she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting
boots off his little feet.

No sooner had they got the boots off when he said,

‘They’re my brother’s boots. But my Mum made me wear ’em today.’

Now she didn’t know if she should laugh or cry.

But she mustered up what grace and courage she had left to
wrestle the boots BACK onto his feet again.

Helping him into his coat, she asked,
‘Now, where are your mittens?’

He said, ‘I stuffed ’em in the toes of my boots.’

Tuesday Tunes-Lord of the Rings, Lindsey Stirling

As I spend all day during this blizzard typing my thesis on J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, I thought I’d share some Lord of the Rings music with y’all! Isn’t Lindsey Stirling amazing?!

Friday Fun!- 2/22/12

So, I don’t know about you all, but here (Missouri) we’ve had about 12-inches of snow. That makes three short school weeks in a row for me!! Anyways, I assure you it was spent doing profitable things. 😉 Well with that out of the way, here we go!

•I found this video quite interesting and spent much time watching it over and over again.

•An ad I recently placed in the paper

•And this, kids, is why we ALWAYS wear seatbelts!

•This is SO me

•Worth the read, I promise.

•Heehee! Reminds me of Sally Sparrow and the Doctor, but much creepier.

•Ding-dong, the cat is dead (unless, of course, it’s Schrödinger’s cat…)

•Every time I look in the mirror, little friend, every time…

•I know what happened. Life happened.

•A new way (or is it old?) way to do the hokey-pokey.

•As you all know, I play a variety of instruments, primarily the flute. I recently discovered that I can also beatbox and rap, having never heard for a great length of time either one performed. This shall be my next endeavor, thus combining flute and beatbox.

•*GASP*

•*DOUBLE GASP*

•Maybe you’ve seen Messy Mondays, where this previously homeschooled dude basically talks on life in funny little ways. His “You might be a homeschooler if…” 1, 2, 3 often apply to me, and I’ve never been a homeschooler!

Well I hope you all have a marvelous weekend!

This shall be posted whilst I(jojo aka admin1) am off Bible-Quizzing. For those of you who may be unfamiliar to this term, Bible-Quizzing is an international competition where every year one or more books from the New Testament are memorized and teams of up to five quizzers compete three at a time. This year we memorized Acts 🙂

* Om nom nom…

*How disappointing would it be to see this?

*Happy Valentines Day!

Sorry for such a short post, but there is homework to be done and bags to pack! Have a great weekend!

Friday Fun!-2/8/13

•So today we went to get my little bro’s permit test taken. On the way beck, traffic was insane which was weird since it was the middle of the day. Some dude skid across both lanes and into some vehicle which had already been removed by the time we got there. Turns out, this same guy had just taken his test right before my brother.

•Share if you’re against Middle Earth bullying

•Just get mom

•Cookie Monster has violent tendencies!

•This is how guys should always open doors. There would be so much more awesome!

•Bully!

•I know it’s not Halloween, but this is still awesome

•Smile and the world will smile with you!

This video just makes me want to be an anesthesiologist even more.

•I wonder if it always works?

•Seriously? If this is how guys think they should talk to us…. LOL!

•Then again, some of us may be desperate.

WOW!
