Books that Rhyme and What They do to my Mind

Rhyming books, books, books
makes my brain cook, cook, cook.
Frizzles and frazzles
then sparkles and dazzles.
Whenever I read a book that rhymes
my brain must continue for quiet a long time.
I can’t think thoughts straight
Unless they rhyme great
I must go to bed
Before I fry my brain dead…

Where's Unlimited!?!?

Unlimited is a very responsible person.
If you leave her a voice mail you can bet that she will return your call within 48 hours.
If you send her an email you can bet that she will respond within 24 hours.
If you send her a text you can bet that she will respond within 1 hour.
If you send her a text asking if she is still alive you can bet that she will respond within 5 minutes...right?
Well not this weekend. After calling and emailing without getting a response I started to worry, so I sent Unlimited a text that read:
I just start to worry when I send emails and leave messages but you don't respond. Especially after your almost heart attack story...are u ok?
I thought surely she would reply within minutes....but no, nothing, nada, zip, zilch. I was afraid we lost Unlimited forever!!!!!!!! Luckily Unlimited just forgot her phone, and decided not to check email while she was away...

Unlimited: Don't let this happen again!

It's the Little Things In Life

Even though I try very hard not to, I end up taking the simple things in life for granted.

I wish I could breathe through both nostrils again...for those of you who have this ability, be thankful.

The Internet is an Amazing Thing

I can honestly say that I don't know what I'd do without the Internet.

I use the Internet for:
communication-blogs, news, emails
ideas-lesson plans, art activities

I've also used the Internet to verify questions for schoolwork and for fun (i.e. "was that the guy in that other movie"). The Internet is a wonderful place to support my hypothesis or defend my answer, but I've never used the internet to prove a teacher wrong. Well, I was on Facebook today when I happened upon a new group titled, 10,000,000 strong for Chris beating his statistics teacher's expectations
The description reads:
Chris' statistics teacher said it would be impossible for him to contact 10,000,000 people for a sample group... too bad she didn't think he'd actually try.

Currently the group has 717 members. I wonder if he'll actually succeed...and if he does how long will it take? As far as I can tell, this group was started Feb. 13th around 8pm, so about 5 days. (5 x 24) Which is 120 hours. (717/120) That's about 6 members an hour. (6 x 24) 144 members a day... (10,000,000/144) so it would take him 69,444 days to get to 10 million. (69,444/365) 190 years...Good luck Chris!

Intern Support

I work with one of the best intern groups ever!
We meet every Friday to have breakfast together and catch up.
We constantly visit one another during the week just to say, "Hi."
We always take time to share our experiences.
We try our best to help each other during tough times.
We are supportive and encouraging.
But most importantly we know how to have a good time.

I'd like to give a shout out to:
Unlimited- You are my Emilio. Happy V-day.

The Power of Technology

So as I sit here in the dark I am thankful for my iPhone. You see my power is out, and yet I am still able to blog, surf the net, watch videos on youtube, check email, and listen to music......at least until the batteries run out.....then what will I do!?!

How I Got My Blog Name

Someone asked me about this and then recommended that I post my answer. So here you go:

When I started this blog I couldn't think up a name...I was playing around with different things and somehow I thought about silly corn, like "corny" as in a corny joke, I tend to be a big fan of those.

Then I thought of a farmer seeing the word "corn" and reading this blog but being very confused b/c it's nothing about corn.

And then Charlotte's Web inspired "That's some _______" again with the farmer theme. Let me just say it was one crazy brainstorming afternoon.

I picked it as a joke, but the more I think about it the more it fits. Corn will pretty much grow no matter what, but if you take good care of it, you'll get a better crop; kinda like students.

So a I read a chapter in my art textbook about music when I was reminded of a movie called Paradise Road. This movie is one of many movies that inspires hope through music. If you've never seen it watch this clip. It explains the power of music much better than I can.
