What you see here in the above snap, besides the gakking Happy Face & all, is the remainder of our '09 Yearbook Stash. For the record, we have 141 books left. 71 have already been spoken for. That means, butofcourse, we have 70 left to sell.
Think I'll give three away to departing/retiring teachers. The gal who compared Our Humble High School's student-run newspaper to Playboy and/or Hustler deserves one for giving us cover on the letters-to-the-ed front. The other 2 are retirees-don't really care for the Old Crone who's my department chair, but what the hell. And I adore the other abuelita, who's retiring to partake in grandmothering full-time.
We've been selling about 25 yearbooks a day. Let's see...25 per day, with 7 days of school left? I'm optimistic about getting rid of 'em. And at $70 a pop, I see some new computer and camera equipment on the horizon for my journalistas.
This just in, courtesy of The Washington Post: The local plant that makes Ben & Jerry's for our neck o' the woods is shutting down. Whatever shall we do? For the record, the factory also makes Klondike Bars, Popsicles & other novelty ice cream for Good Humor.
Drat...there goes my diet!
