The most controversial issue consuming Happyland's school board of late is this: Should high school students be allowed to ride snowmobiles to school? Yep, that's a sign that we live in the country snowmobiles dominate school board debates for almost 8 months. The answer, for those of you interested, was a 4-3 vote against this seasonal mode of transportation. Nevermind that no snowmobile trail leads directly to the high school, or that the insurance company, county sheriff, town police and state sheriff opposed allowing snowmobiles on school properties. I believe one of the major deal breakers for the school board members voting on the issues was where to park the snowmobiles.
And speaking of politics and education with a side of religion dished up, I'm on a panel discussion at my church tomorrow morning. The topic? "School Choices for Your Children." I'm representing the "Public School Option" alongside the charter school moms, the homeschooling moms, and the parochial school moms. When it's over, I'll race out in time to don my hairnet and apron and serve sloppy joes to at Mr. T's PS (parochial school).
I would love to buy the soundtrack for Sons of Anarchy--if such a thing existed. Sadly, I have to go on the official SOA website and find the list of songs for each episode and then buy them individually. Alas! But I'll do it--a little bad-ass biker music makes an excellent addition to my disco play list. They both make me run faster, disco makes me run in a happy, bouncy kind of way, SOA rock makes me run in a more determined, woman-warrior kind of way. Biker/disco fusion. It could become a whole new fashion trend.
Spill it, reader. What's your fusion of choice these days?
