----A guy named Simtoshi whose dad lives upstairs claims to hold the Guinness World Record for smallest carved statue----

----I spent a significant portion of today, the last day of preparation before school starts, transferring textbooks from a chicken shack into a pickup truck-----

----My 12th graders are going to be tested by the state on "Tess of the D'ubervilles," a 450-page novel about social mores in 19th-century England; when I asked an experienced colleague how many pages per night I should assign for that level of material, she responded, after serious consideration, "Two, and most of them won't read that much"----
