Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving! I am so excited for Vegan Turducken: Pumpsquash-o (Potato inside of a squash inside of a pumpkin). Thanksgiving food is by FAR my most favorite cuisine: gravy, pecan pie, yams, cranberries… gravy!!!
For my student teaching, I am teaching a two week unit on The Crucible. So far, we have played a game called Witch Hunt! (a modified version of Mafia or Werewolf), I have lost my voice lecturing about Puritans for 5 hours, & we had a class discussion about capital punishment in Texas. Oh, and I've been wearing striped stockings and reproduction Victorian lace up boots everyday to teach. The students call me a witch, all in fun, of course.
This week, I signed a petition for one of my students who wants to be cannonized as Patron St. of Chocolate Oatmeal, and another who wants to be patron St. of Pimp Daddies.
