French toast #3

6 slices of Challah slightly toasted
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 c. egg nog make it youself or get the organic type, NO Safeway egg nog with yellow dye 5.
1/2 c. milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Cinnamon
Butter

Combine the eggs, egg nog, milk vanilla. Pour onto a plate and sprinkle the cinnamon as evenly as possible. Place the pieces of challah toast and coat evenly on both sides. Fry on a med-high skillet until slightly golden on each side and cook until done through. Serve with copious amounts of maple syrup.

French toast is always best as a late night snack, I think.

I was driving down the freeway to get somewhere fast, and of course there was a jam all the way down to the colloseum for some Jesus on Ice spectacle. A guy in a light magenta pick-up with the back end open cut in front of me on the way to the exit. Ever impatient, he pushed his way to the front and drove right through the median, but in his haste he hit a bump and a bright and shiny brand new dolley fell out the back and hit the ground. A man with a beard, a belly and a baseball cap came out of his mini-man. He picked up the dolley and put it in his mini-van.


I went to the bookstore today to pick up a copy of Aquinas' Summa Contra Gentiles and I came across a pile of books left on the New Paperbacks counter... books that had no logical place among Reading Lolita in Tehran, and other titles. It was probably a stash collected by some lonely book-lover who had hoarded these books so she could escape into a corner with them. Why would I assume that this person was female. Read below:

  • DSMIV Made Easy
  • DSMIV Training Guide
  • Life of Pi
  • The Lucky Shopping Manual
  • Positive Discipline in the Classroom
  • Natural Ferility and Pregnancy
  • Skills Training Manual for Treating the Borderline Personality Disorder

I don't even want to enter the mind of such a person... nor the classroom. I did read through the little manual for creating a positive learning environment in any classroom and I did come across the idea called the
"Choice Wheel." A wheel to spin around divided in sections, and each section containing one of the following selections. Spin the wheel and choose a consequence... I mean choice:
  • Shake hands and take turns (doing what?)
  • Apologize
  • Walk Away
  • Class Meeting
  • Use an "I" Message
  • Tell Them to STOP
  • Count to Ten to Cool Off
  • Go to Another Game
