It's Friday night and all I wanna do is sleep

Does the bald eagle, the symbol of American freedom and our national bird, remind you of Hitler, one of the most evil men of the 20th century?


According to one of my students today, the two could be twins. After showing a picture of the bald eagle during Nature class, a boy exclaimed, "It looks like Hillter, Hillter..."

"Hitler?" I asked.

"Yea. Hillter. You know..." and then he proceeded to do the Hitler salute.

At least he knows something about history. The stereotype might be that Asians are smart -- and students here do study a lot -- but I have plenty of kids who can't even find Korea on the map.

In other news, you know your week is boring when the highlight is a toss-up between finding organic, non-fat milk at the store (and that was an exciting moment ) and having a killer night of chicken soup/norebang/ho dduk with friends.

It was a decidedly lame week. A freezing cold, decidedly lame week. A freezing cold, overworked, decidedly lame week. Too bad we're all working tomorrow, too.
