Snack Time


Confession . . . I read all the Twilight books.   Yup.  And I even saw the first couple of movies.   And shocker, I admit, I liked them.   I don't, however, like Kirsten Stewart, she's a little too monotone for me.  Okay, A LOT monotone.   But still . . . I liked Twilight.   Sometimes it's fun to go away into fantasyland for a couple hours.   And we have a lot of fantasy to choose from.     I haven't watched The Walking Dead, or The Vampire Diaries, but I hear from good sources that they are good.  Again . . . fantasy.

It's when the fantasy/reality line gets crossed that should concern us.  Case in point.  A teacher in Norway (but could have been anywhere).  She apparently did not just cross the line, she sprinted across it.      She brought a vial of her own blood to her classroom and poured it out on a plate.   The students asked if they could touch it, and they put their fingers in it.   Then they asked how to get it off their fingers.   The teacher demonstrated - - by putting her finger in her mouth.   The children followed her example.   Yes, true story.  I'm not sure what, if anything, she was trying to teach them, but I guess we should be grateful that she wasn't teaching sex education.      

Yes, she's been fired AND tested for those icky diseases that can come from drinking a blood cocktail.   And the thought comes to mind - - I wonder what she'll put on her resume?

Oh, and by the way, did I mention she teaches, I mean taught, kindergarten?

  3. That is vile and disgusting and I hope she's doing jail time too. Omg.. If she was my kid's teacher she'd be in the hospital. How did she get a teaching certificate?? Oh Judy this just gives me the creeps.. And I'm with you Kristen Stewart needs help starting with a hair brush..

    1. You make me laugh so much. Sometimes all I have to do is see that you've commented and I start laughing. I don't even have to read it! But, yes, you're right - - a hair brush would be a good start :)

  4. That's just plain weird and disgusting! What in the world was going on in this teacher's mind? I'm thinking she had some pretty big issues under wraps! It used to be that school was a relatively safe and sane place to send your children, definitely not so anymore.

    2. Oh, that is sick! I love the Twilight books and movies and I have watched all of the movies including the last one. You should watch the rest of them; you'll LOVE Breaking Dawn II! LOL I know that lots of people think they're dumb and don't like them but I do; what can i say? I don't however, desire to be a vampire! :) I finally understood STephanie Myers' purpose in using Vampires(understood it at the VERY END of the movie!). That's when I really loved it! And I am still sick at the thought of that kindergarden teacher and what she did to those kids! Unfortunately, I am really good at visualizing! :)

  6. It's hard to believe that the thought NEVER crossed her mind that "this might not be a good idea" at any time. Apparently they just don't teach CRITICAL THINKING anymore. That is scary. If they aren't teaching it to the teachers, who will teach it to the students? And if no one is teaching it, and no is doing it, what will that mean for society? I guess everyone will just do what they are told.

  8. I'm not impressed with Kristen Stewart either. I'm not a big Twilight fan, but I have seen the movies.
    The wannabe Vampire teacher is disgusting!

  9. I loved Twilight too, and I understand why they chose Kristen Stewart. They wanted someone with no personality so the girls watching could superimpose themselves onto her.

  10. Hello Judy..nice to see ur comment on my post. Rangoli is an art..It is drawn with hands..using colors especially formulated for that purpose or even with flowers..ppl all over India draw different types of rangolis on auspicious occasions. It may be a small and simple, or the lavish one like you saw on my blog. It symbolizes joy, spirit and happiness. I draw simple rangoli at the entrance of my house during festivals like Diwali, Holi and Dushera. Some people draw it daily. Also check this link for more details.- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rangoli

  11. Wow-- I wouldn't want that teacher in my son's kindergarten. You do have to wonder what she was thinking. What's the best case scenario when you bring in a vial of blood to share with kindergarteners? Ug.

  12. That is pretty gruesome! My daughter loved Twilight and so I read the books, and watched the first two movies, and in the theater, when all the middle age women heaved sighs of joy when the werewolf boys took off their shirts, um, I was done. It got too weird....but not as weird as that teacher!

  14. Stories like this make me want to homeschool my children. I don't even have children but, if I did, I'm leaning toward homeschooling as an option.

    I love the Twilight series, too. I see the books & movies as just being fun ways to escape reality for a couple of hours. I think the scariest vampire movie is definitely 30 Days of Night.
