“It’s pretty much my favorite civilization”

April 29, 2005

My third grade art students were watching a video about ancient Egypt as part of our Egyptian art unit.

In unison, the kids whispered among themselves “Hey, Napoleon Dynamite!”.

We ate at one of those sit-down chain resturants yesterday (you know, the ones where miscellaneous items are individually bolted to the wall and/or ceiling?). I got thinking- will we ever look back nostalgically at these restaurants like we do diners?

(old man in the future)- Remember the good old restaurants where we could dine under a hockey stick bolted to the ceiling? And what about those menus? Every item had an exclamation point at the end of the description like it was the best food they ever made!

Don’t Panic

Just 21 more days (which is half of 42!) until the release of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy! If you don’t know what it is, I suggest that you check out the movie’s website. If you really don’t know what it is I would suggest reading the book first. Star Wars has got nothing on this movie.
