Stupid Ass Science Fair

Tonight I am a little punchy. This week has been all testing all the time at work which makes for five days that suck ass. On top of that we have off Monday (awesome!) but our science fair projects are due on Tuesday morning (total bullshit!) Guess who hasn't started a project with her class yet?!?! Guess who doesn't really give a shit about science fair?!?! I'm sorry but it is WAY more important to me that my kids were prepared for the tests this week than having a stupid project board done-which by the way they don't really do. My assistant is putting it together after school tomorrow. I googled "Science Fair projects in 24 hours" yesterday when I realized that I was shit out of time and came up with one where you test how much liquid is in different types of fruits. My students and I weighted oranges, apples and bananas in class today and made predictions about what percent would be liquid. Tonight as you can see "we" are finishing the experiment and collecting "our" data in the morning. So basically I am doing MY science fair project tonight (like all great procrastinators) and would like to factor in an additional variable to our data...alcohol. I am definitely drinking while doing this and make no apologies about it. I've dried the oranges and apples already and they are doing well but the bananas are a different story. Here's hoping I don't fuck this up in the eleventh hour...

All of that cut up fruit would go super nicely in a fantastic Sangria mix...

Let us know how the project goes and I can slip you a killer recipe!!! :-)

Shit... Now I'm thirsty for Sangria... :-)

Looks like part of the makings of some good sangria too.

Good luck!

Um, I afraid I have to apologize. I just changed your number of followers from 69 to 70.
You're just too good to not follow though I hated that lucky number.
