Tom the Turkey

This morning we had a surprise waiting for us at the front of the school. His name was Tom the Turkey and he was from the local Los Altos farm. When my principal was told that Farmer Bob was going to bring Tom the Turkey to school this morning he was a bit shocked to actually find a real turkey- he was expecting Farmer Bob to be dressed as Tom the Turkey.

Rainn Wilson Warrior Princess

I can't get over this picture. I was sick today and noticed my processing was a bit slow. Shirin sent me a link to this picture and I couldn't figure out what was so special about it. I thought she was just sending me a picture of Xena the Warrior Princess who "let herself go" after all these years. Once the cold drained out of my head and allowed me to process a bit more quickly I realized that this is Rainn Wilson. Wow.

Wales Street Sign

I heard this story on npr. Apparently in Wales there was an Englishman who was hired to translate a road sign into Welsh. He emailed a translator and was surprised to get a reply so quickly. The road sign was put up and the townspeople were upset when they read the sign saying: "I am not in the office at the moment. Send any work to be translated"
