Crowns vs. Crayons

9 Feb

But we’ll get to that in a minute…

Today was a pretty good day.  I mean any day that is going to end in pancakes…is a good day. 

Other reasons:

Had a pretty good cold weather run.  Score!  Read here if you want some tips on cold weather running.  I definitely agree with the layering.  I had on two undershirts and then a wicking jacket.  My aunt got me the Nike Combat thermal:

From the academy

I really like mine a lot.  It’s also a compression shirt, so it sucks you all in.  Pretty great.  I also pretty much always wear my cheapo gloves from Target.  They are good for keeping fingers warm and wiping the snot away from you face, that’ll inevitably happen…  I ran/walked about 3.5 miles (3.4 if you’re really counting, I like to round-up). 

Number two reason why today is a good day: I also have two American Horror Story’s to watch.  I know I’m late to the party, but I am really enjoying this series!


It’s wrong on so many levels, but I can’t stop watching it.  That rubber suit guy…what the hell is that all about?   That creepy whistling song?  Not okay.

It wasn’t okay in Kill Bill and it’s not okay now in American Horror Story.  Also Jessica Lange is really good at playing bitchy, crazy people. 

School News

Crowns vs. Crayons.  When I moved to Ohio from Michigan there were a lot of things that were different.  People saying, “please” when they wanted you to repeat something, y’alls all over the place, the general Middletuckyness of Middletown.  But, one thing in school really perplexed me.  When we were doing projects and using colored pencils and the such the kids in my class would ask for crowns.  This was all very confusing as a) we were not at Burger King and b)last I checked I had not turned into a princess over night.  It took me a couple of times to realize that they were asking to borrow my crayons.

Today one of the first graders said she brought in crowns for the 100th day of school, but of course she meant crayons.  It was driving me crazy!  Luckily the general teacher called her on it.  Not that I want first graders to feel bad, but it’s just not right!!

What do you call them crayons (the correct way;) or crayons…?
