GingerSass - adding ginger to your sass


I feel oddly compelled to post something here tonight, but I don’t have anything to say.

So hi.

Here’s a meme. It was one of the first ones that popped up when I Googled “memes.” (I think it’s kind of accurate as to where my teacher mind is right now.

Also, check out this workshop by one of my favorite blogs/ instagram accounts to follow, FosterMoms. This is far more worthy of being posted on here than Alan from The Hangover.

Back to my ramblings. I’m so ready for it to be summer. I’ll be nannying this summer, moving this summer, and trying not to move much off the couch when I’m home this summer. I’ll also be wearing sneakers a lot, which is something I’ve invested a lot into lately. A LOT. Like I own multiple pairs of shoes that could be considered sneakers that weren’t bought at Payless. If you’ve followed this blog for awhile, you’ll know why this is shocking. (I still suck at exercising, btw.) BUT, back to the importance of this unimportant paragraph, I’ll be wearing comfortable shoes and breathing a bit this summer.

I’m excited.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend. <3

Applebees likes Golden Gays.

I was tweeting with my friend Paul about the Golden Globes when I jokingly  started hashtagging #GoldenGays.


Suddenly, Applebees (THE VERIFIED ACCOUNT!) was following me.

I mean, I’ve eaten their fine cuisine for years. I’ve been followed by chains before. But this… this was new. This was the first time a chain followed me, unprompted, with no type of tweet even mentioning their food.



Like the time I decided that Cory Booker followed me because I referred to Cory Booker as the Chuck Norris of my generation, I’ve decided that Applebees has followed me because I’m awesomesauce. That, and they love the “Golden Gays.”


This also prompted me to decide to live tweet the Golden Globes tomorrow night under the hashtag #GoldenGays. Who knows? Maybe Applebees will follow along and join in the fun.

If you give teenagers a laptop…


I preemptively started to clear my car last night so I’d have less ice to chip off this morning.

We had the first snow fall of the season last night. We only received a few inches by me, but South Jersey got an unexpected buttload.

The roads were alright driving this morning. It was the rain that was horrible.

When I got to school, the parking lot hadn’t been touched. Most of the snow had melted… and turned into ice. I slipped 3 times, and I feel like I pulled something.

A lot of teachers called out today, and, because we have so few subs in our district, I’m currently covering a Spanish class.

You know how if you give a mouse a cookie he’ll want a glass of milk?

If you give a bunch of teenagers laptops during a free period they’ll be quiet and let you write a blog. They’ll also ask for advice on how to beat level 72 of Candy Crush.

I don’t mind this coverage.
