What are your taxes paying for? Do you agree with the way Congress has decided to allocate your money? (Click here if my blog screen is too small for you to see the whole gadget)

I have to say, these are some pretty wonky priorities. For example, I would love to see defense (26.3%) and education (4.8%) switched. But that's me.

Need laughter? Look no further.

If you don't already watch the Colbert Report, you are missing out on a lot of laughter in your life. Just saying.

So, let's try to make a potentially very long story kind of short. With videos. So that actually makes it much longer.

  • Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert hated each other because they both had their own (competing) Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors, but now they are BF's for 6 months.
  • Colbert told his audience that since he raised $26,000 for with the sale of his portrait, his BF Jimmy would match it.
  • Fallon learned about this and then announced to his audience that if they could pitch in to make that $26,000 match, his BF Stephen would perform Rebecca Black's Friday live on his show that week.
  • This is Rebecca Black's Friday (although I don't actually recommend you watch it).
  • And this is the HILARIOUS performance that ensued.

PS. YAY that $52,000 was donated to DonorsChoose!! I've had a project funded through them - it's a pretty amazing program!

Oh crap

Hi. Quarter 3 is OVER. Ten more weeks of school. Sigh.

Also, on my class website every week I post the newest Flocabulary Week in Rap. Corny, yes. But the kids love it and it does an awesome job of reviewing the week's news in about 60 seconds.

Here. Enjoy.
