Carnival of Education & Other Odds & Ends

The Carnival of Education has been up and running over at the Right Wing Nation. My post “Teens, Trips & the Rubber Chicken” was included, but you don’t have to go there to read it here.

But you know the drill. If you want to know what’s buzzing around the EduSphere, you really need to go there and see what everyone else is saying.

Fans of this blog know that next week is spring break, and I’ll be in NYC with nine DIs (Darling Inspirations) for the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s national journalism convention where we will claim our first ever national award. (Can we get a big WOO-HOO?!).

So chance are, I won’t be posting for a week or so. If that makes you have some sort of withdrawals, you can hop over to Blog Critics and read another post I have over there by going here. I would love to see your comments there.

But before I go, I’d like to leave you with a little something that occurred on Friday as we tried to get everything ready for our NYC trip. The kids couldn’t decide whether they wanted to try and do the standing-out-in-front-of-the-Today-Show thing yet, so I told someone to call and get all the information. One of the sports editors called and got the location, but not the time. He didn’t want to call back.

Me…“Why not? We’ll never see these people.”

No response…so Mikey the extraordinaire volunteered to call again. It went like this…

Mikey…“Hi. What time do I have to get there to stand outside in the morning and act like an idiot?…OK. Thanks.”

Me…“I can’t believe you said that…”

Mike…“Why? You're the one who said we’d never see those people.”

Yeah, this trip is going to be some kind of fun.

We've stood outside Today can get there anytime after 6:30 depends, of course, on whether it's a weekday or not. Not surprisingly, crowds aren't as big since Katie Couric isn't there anymore. Have fun, be safe, and if you're checking your blog tomorrow, PS: Don't forget mañana's Sx3!
