~ Does anybody else think it's a bit weird to hear Barry Manilow singing Christmas songs? Especially since he's Jewish? Or, maybe he converted. It still isn't as creepy as hearing Karen Carpenter singing "I'll Be Home for Christmas".
~ As I was wiping down my door handle, one of my 3rd graders asked me if I was "a germaphobia".
~ I've been listening to Christmas music via Songza. The categories that I've been listening to have "Fairytale of New York" by The Pogues. Every time I hear that song, I picture the look on Kathy Bates' face when part of the song is played in "P.S., I Love You". A friend who is married to a Brit said it's a big-time song in Great Britain.
~ This morning, I noticed one of the 3rd grade teachers looking in the mirror. I stopped and said, "You look beautiful!" She told me that she didn't put makeup on that morning, and that last time she didn't wear any, one of her students asked her what was on her chin, and she proceeded to explain to him that it was zits/pimples. He told her she needed to cover it up because it was distracting him.
