Happy Pythagorean Triple Day!

This is the first one this century that didn't happen during the school year, unless you count 8/6/10.

I was teaching for 3/4/5, 6/8/10, 5/12/13, and 9/12/15 (and their permutations), although I'd have to check which of those were actually school days and not weekends or holidays.

The ones that we have left to go in this century are 12/16/20, 7/24/25 and 10/24/26. Sadly, I won't be retired by then.

RIP Glen Campbell, Country Boy with True Grit

I really wanted to write a couple of verses to this, but I also really wanted this up today. So I might come back to it later. I might even ask for help on this one.

Slap on the Back

Numeric practical jokes. You have to figure that ''Kick Me'' doesn't work well when you don't have feet(*). Or meters.

This is a very rare rear glimpse of the numeric characters. I've only done this, I believe, once before, and that was part of the joke.

And I haven't really used these guys in quite a while. I need to use them more often. And give more of them actual names.

There's always that kid that has to jump in to get part of the credit.

I use "Jeopardy" rules -- if you didn't buzz in (raise your hand) and get called on, the person currently answering can steal the answer and get the credit.

And if you think I inserted a girl into the class last week just so I could do this, well, you'd be incorrect, but it certainly helped. I haven't been waiting my whole career for this one, but I did write it in a notepad quite a while ago!

When is Who on?

Joke's on Michele: she'll have to sit through a whole Christmas special with two old male Doctors before we get a quick introduction to the new Who.

Oh, and "Spoiler Alert!" if you somehow missed the news.

Just What the Teacher Inscribed!

I would've put 'Mom and Dad', but I had space limitations. Space: the final frontier.

Plus, from real life, there's a good choice that it's a single parent carrying on the good traditions while the other is poisoning their minds with 'weird stuff'.
