American Politics
So I'm back in the hallowed halls of academia yet again. Very interesting course on American Politics. First assignment is to take this test to see where you fit into the realm of the american political spectrum. I'm a Leftist Libertarian. Where do you fit in? Take the test & repost! www.politicalcompass.org

Allergy Season
Well allergy season is definately upon us. I am one of the lowly victims of this yearly plague. Everything hurts. Today I surmised that it is very difficult to get small children to pay attention to their teacher when her voice sounds like a frog. Perfect, especially when teaching gym class.

No grammar today kiddies, the grammar queen is out for the count....(come on, I know you are disappointed).

PS - I have hearby decided that i do not have enough LJ friends, get your friends to add me so I can feel like people actually like me and think i'm interesting!

islands and bunnies
Well, a fabulous weekend was had. Lovely little jaunt to Pender for a few nights. Also met up with the parents and spent some time with them on the boat. I have also found my new favourite book of the moment "Eats, Shoots and Leaves" by Lynne Turss. I would definately recommend that all of you out there should check it out, if only to read the hilarious anecdote on the back. Then spent a great evening with the family for Easter dinner. Funniest moment of the evening was watching createaworld. hunt for eggs with a cranky 2 year old cheering him on.
Am currently watching a very interesting documentary on Starbucks - full report to follow.

Nuns, puppies and grammar, oh my!
Today I took my grade 3's to St. Ann's for a field trip. This is especially funny as my Mom went there as a girl. It was a pretty funny thought to sit in this beautiful chapel with the morning light streaming through old stained glass windows, only to be imagining your mother sitting there for religion class.............
Also went for our Wednesday volunteering session at the SPCA tonite. One of the doggies who has been there for such a long time is finally going to his forever home on Monday! So of course a party must be had in his honour!!! I wonder what you bring to a bon-voyage patry for a pit bull.............. But check out the Victoria SPCA website for Tyson's gorgeous pics under adoptable dogs at www.spca.bc.ca/victoria

Todays grammar gem from the DTV (Deluxe Transitive Vampire)deals with compounds!!!

Both simple subjects and simple predicates can be compound, which means that more than one thing is going on, or is being gone on about. A compound subject contains two or more subjects joined by AND, OR, or NOR, which share the same verb, are doing the same thing, are share the same predicament.

(A debutante) and (a troll) are squatting under the bridge.
(The werewolf) or (his wife) wreaked havoc in the pantry.
(The innuendo) and (its consequences) missed their mark completely.

Miss Suzy's fabulous update!
Torquil and Johquil frequenlty dissagreed on the physical nature of their friendship, still they plotted their tryst.

The debutante is squatting under the bridge, full of nervous chills of what lies in the future.

The werewolf must be cautious, for the last time he had eaten a girl so sweet he had a toothache for weeks.

The door which was driven by an anger only we females can describe was slammed in his flabbergasted face.

Looming over the lifeless corspe of a sorry sucker (no pun intended) the vampire began to powder his nose keeping careful not to be noticed.

- That was kinda hard, but in a "ooh this is exciting" kinda way. I'm soooo glad your on here, makes me use my noggin'.

career enhancement
Well folks, you are now officially speaking to the new Learning Assistance teacher extraordinaire at my fabulous little school! Everybody now - let's hear it for me!!! (I would cheer for myself but I can't as I am presently extremely frozen from undergoing the needle at the dentist's.) Also, hurray for two (2) four (4) day weeks back to back!!!!! I heart long weekends...............*sigh!*

Also, today's lesson from the Deluxe Transitive Vampire continues on our fascinating look at our dear friend, "The Predicate". Now, Miss Suzy delightfully added her own extended version of yesterdays lesson, and I challenge all of my other darkling darlings out there to add your own addendum to today's gift of grammatic voyeurism! As always, the focus of the lesson will be defined by our good aquatiance, the parentheses ().

The subject doesn't always precede the predicate:
- There were (fifty-five lusterless vampires) dismantling the schloss.
- Into the circle of blind conformists leaps (a dissident) shining with woe.

ok, that's mine! Let's see who can "out-predicate" Miss Suzy today!

Today's posting from The Deluxe Transitive Vampire:
The predicate () is the other necessary part of the sentence, the part that has something to say about the subject, that states its predicament.

Torquil and Johquil (plotted their tryst.)
The debutante (is squatting under the bridge.)
The werewolf (had a toothache.)
The door (slammed in his flabbergasted face.)
The vampire (began to powder his nose.)
