Can we just take a moment and say: How great were these two last night? (How great are they, period.)
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler rocked it.
Here is an awesome timeline from New York Magazine of their friendship that will make you totally misty-eyed. (If you’re at all a sucker like me.):


Their best friendship is our best friendship. It reminds us that people are kind and funny and able to photobomb each other. So, let us walk you through the history of mankind’s greatest friendship since Jesus and whichever apostle he liked best.

Writing is like breathing, it’s possible to learn to do it well, but the point is to do it no matter what.

The number of teachers who have left their jobs this year has gone up by more than thirty percent in Houston, KHOU.com reports. According to the data released by the Houston Independent School District, at least 300 faculty members have quit so far — an increase of 66 over the same period last year.

Those leaving could probably relate to the sentiment expressed by a Jacob Santillan – a veteran of the U.S. Army – in a resignation letter that has been making the news all over Houston. In it, Santillan described the conditions as untenable, and said that he preferred going back into combat to ever teaching in a public school classroom again.

After spending only a single semester teaching in a HISD middle school, Santillan has had enough. And he believes that there are a growing number of teachers who feel exactly as he does – warning district heads that unless things change, they would continue to lose teachers Houston desperately needs…

 A full quarter of teachers who have resigned have been on the job for a decade or more.

Conversations With My Cat

What’s that?   You’re hungry?  OK, here’s some wet food.

What now?  You want me to shovel the crap outta your litter box?  Wow, this stuff really does clumpify!

OK, you want attention now.  I have time. I’ll pet  you.  I don’t need to look for a job.  I can’t anyway since you’re sitting on my keyboard. 

I get it. You don’t want the dog to sniff your butt so you’re hiding out on my lap.  That’s flattering.  Hey, that’s my sandwich!   You have Friskies!
