Let the bodies hit the floor

I love seeing someone truly talented in a particular field branching out to satisfy other forms of creative expression.  Justin Lamb can pen and perform a poem better than an average bear.  Lamb is currently based out of New Orleans where he works on his craft daily.  Check out this track that he and James Hamilton recently released.  Let the bodies hit the floor reinvents Let the bodies hit the floor with soulful overtones.  Click the picture of J Lamb and James Hamilton (Chilly Diamond) to stream the track or check out the music video.  I’ve attached a two of my favorite Justin Lamb poems below.  Connecticut features one of the best satirical comments regarding Connecticut “…all of our fortune cookies read: You’re Fucked” while Sweaty Teacher tackles issues on a glandular level.  Lamb will release a spoken word CD in early 2012, check back for details.

My 3 and 4 year old students had to dress up and the teachers decided to jump in on the fun.  My costume was more like a character that I call Single Dad.  I strapped a doll to myself and put on some thick glasses then went around saying, “Have you seen my child… will you be my wife… Carol is that you?”

I had my Pre-K students fill out a worksheet recently.  It would have been unfair if I didn’t match their efforts by completing the assignment as well.  Miyaka, Lil, and Joelene are all great teachers!

I love black people

One Friday, in an effort to make work a more spirited place, oranges were handed out with the message, Orange you glad it’s Friday!  I love the whole thing but on Monday I felt empty again.  I helped myself make Monday better.

In this picture I’m doing my best Marilyn Monroe.  Thanks to Kat J for the skirt and Canadian denim vest.

Dress Code

I’m one of two guys that works at my day care.  Summer is coming up and everyone wants to show off their crazy bod so we need to set guidelines for an appropriate look.  While it didn’t apply to me I felt like I had to speak up about the new dress code memo that went out.  My bod is my words, how can you try to stifle my self expression while teaching someone to tie their shoe or serving steak fingers and a vegetable medly?  I’m lucky my boss and coworkers have a great sense of humor.  I just ate so my belly is confident in this picture.

Shout out to Lanette for coaxing me into asking about a gym membership dressed like this during my break.  She was so kind as to accompany me to the gym above our day care and witnessed me telling the woman at the desk that I was ‘trying to get that beach body’.  She was very nice to me and not just all customer servicey.

2009: A nice little picture from the greatest summer camp in the world.  Unfortunately I can’t show you the full picture with the kids in the background enjoying the scene because I don’t have legal permission to do so.  Fortunately it is still an awesome picture, what a farmers tan, let us not forget I was being paid for this…

Mustache Mondays

It’s called Mustache Mondays, ya dig.  Shout out to Kat J. and Jeremy A. of Killing in Apathy.  That sentence wrote itself.  The kids at my daycare think it’s real sometimes because they’ve only been alive for three years.
