And it wouldn't count as baking without the obligatory skull cookie.

The Wicked Teacher of the West may do me a great honor, but leaves out some important details of her story. Naturally, I am righteously outraged: someone is wrong on the internet! Well, leaving out important details on the internet, at least. So, in the traditional and time honored way, I am writing a pithy but searing rebuttal!
What her post leaves out is that she, as my middle school computer science teacher, was the one who piqued my interest in computer science. I am immensely indebted to her for not only providing the opportunity of making Lord of The Rings digital madlibs in perl (ah, the obsessions of my youth), but for encouraging and providing countless opportunities for me to do more than just my classwork. A large percent of the Things I've Done she mentions were made possible by her.
So how's that for a smackdown, huh? I think I have a beautiful future ahead of me in blog flame wars.
And by the way, thanks for being my tech heroine.

From my turning-everything-I-find-into-earrings phase, the cephaloearrings.
In a hollywood heist style move, I turned one of the earrings into a necklace and wore it to my high school graduation, in clear violation of the rules. It was pretty epic, I had to hide it in my robes and get it through the full pat down and inspection.
So goes my life of crime.

Try and use $0.84 when you spend money today.
Also, I am very impressed by the girl who set the new pi reciting record at my former middle school's pi day celebration. Not only is getting 256 digits totally awesome, but it is also 2^8. If this were an adventure film, this would be a vital hint. I think it is fair to say that my middle school is way cooler than your middle school. Another girl did 50 digits in Spanish.
I think a school is doing something right when Pi Day is a bigger deal than Christmas.

Introducing my newest idée fixe: The Sierpinski Triangle!
....a sierpinski journal entry
written during math class, fittingly enough, although we weren't talking about anything terribly related, and none of the writing has much to do with math...
