Sam will, of course, republish these on his own site but these should tide you over until his return.
@sarcasymptote - My fellow teachers call me the copy machine whisperer, but really I think I'm just the only one who knows how to read.
@dandersod - @sarcasymptote and hopefully the only one who can read twitter, haha.
@sarcasymptote - @dandersod you've overestimated my tact. While fixing it, I told everyone, "all you have to do is follow the goddamn instructions."
@sarcasymptote - @fnoschese @torquedu @calcdave @physicscarp @gotphysics there are tons of videos of eastern europeans doing stupid shit that shows physics
@samjshah - @cheesemonkeysf would you like to create the next favorite tweets? I'm going to be busy for the next few weeks and won't be crazy tweeting.
@k8nowak - @samjshah I 2nd the nomination of @cheesemonkeysf to make the next Favorite Tweets.
@cheesemonkeysf - @samjshah You mean because I am totally wasting time instead of working on my SBG gala post for @lmhenry9 who is slaving away?
@cheesemonkeysf - @k8nowak @samjshah OK, but you realize there's going to be some insane stuff in there.
@k8nowak - @cheesemonkeysf @samjshah Natch. Kind of counting on it actually.
@calcdave - @cheesemonkeysf @k8nowak @samjshah The insane stuff is my favorite! #favourite
@samjshah - @Mythagon can we also make anything vegetarian from t.co/C4T53i3 ? and eat t.co/kxjsDnd again? YES! we will do these things!
@cheesemonkeysf - @samjshah @mythagon Now I'm sad. There's TONS of great vegetarian recips on smittenkitchen.com .
@samjshah - @cheesemonkeysf @mythagon why don't you just come on by utah
@cheesemonkeysf - @samjshah @mythagon Do they allow drop-ins at PCMI? Or would I just be your chef-slave? ;-)
@Mythagon - @cheesemonkeysf @samjshah I like the idea of a chef-slave. I'd be willing to hide you in my room.
@samjshah - @Mythagon @cheesemonkeysf awesome... i think this is going to work out just fine
@park_star - @Mythagon @cheesemonkeysf @samjshah why to to Utah and be a chef-slave when you can go to SK and be a chef-slave? Real novelty is a SK vacay
@samjshah - @Mythagon @cheesemonkeysf don't listen to @park_star! you need a passport to go there, while you just need a unicorn ponycorn to go to UT
@park_star - @samjshah @mythagon @cheesemonkeysf lies! Unicorns and their riders are admitted w/out passports.
@sophgermain - Post coming later. Lots of feelings.
@park_star - @sophgermain feelings? Like you need a hug? Good thing you're moving closer to @samjshah
@samjshah - @park_star @sophgermain oh, I am weird about hugs. so ... maybe.
@k8nowak - @samjshah @park_star @sophgermain He IS weird about hugs. You have to throw yourself at him. And have inertia. Yall are probably too skinny.
@cheesemonkeysf - Dear @k8nowak, Thanks for the tip about the need to take a running start if you want to hug @samjshah /cc @park_star @sophgermain
@k8nowak - @cheesemonkeysf don't underestimate the element of surprise, too.
@sarcasymptote - @samjshah @sophgermain I like the idea of that being a euphemism. "continuous everywhere but differentiable nowhere IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN"
@sarcasymptote - Holy shit, these fucking copiers are fucking pissing me the hell off.
@fnoschese - @sarcasymptote Don't hold back, Greg. Tell us how you really feel about those copiers.
@sarcasymptote - @fnoschese @btwnthenumbers @cheesemonkeysf I did unleash a tirade that included "holyf***************************tch" in the copy room, + 100 more.
@Mythagon - @sarcasymptote @fnoschese @btwnthenumbers @cheesemonkeysf have you tried threatening it with glitter?
@fnoschese - @Mythagon @sarcasymptote @btwnthenumbers @cheesemonkeysf Have you tried your Sonic Rainboom yet? bit.ly/jK8D9y cc: @samjshah
@samjshah - @fnoschese @Mythagon @sarcasymptote @btwnthenumbers @cheesemonkeysf that's a pretty fantastic superpower
@ddmeyer - The Two Lies of Teaching: If I say it, they will learn it. If I don't say it, they won't learn it. bit.ly/iOLAKs
@k8nowak - @ddmeyer re 2 lies of teaching STOP STEALING MY VIRTUAL CONFERENCE POST. j/k but seriously. weird.
@sophgermain - @k8nowak you're already thinking about your virtual confgerence post? damn.
@k8nowak - @sophgermain yeah it has sparkly rainbows and everything. @sarcasymptote and @ThinkThankThunk are gonna eat it up.
@cheesemonkeysf - @k8nowak @sophgermain @sarcasymptote @thinkthankthunk Oh please. Enough with the sparkly rainbows. Like they need any more encouragement.
@k8nowak - @cheesemonkeysf @sophgermain @sarcasymptote @thinkthankthunk too late. the sparkly rainbow IS IN.
@sarcasymptote - @k8nowak - @cheesemonkeysf @sophgermain @thinkthankthunk NICE! I haven't thought much about where I'm going with mine yet.
@park_star - @cheesemonkeysf @k8nowak @sophgermain @sarcasymptote @thinkthankthunk UNICORNS!!!
@sarcasymptote - @park_star @cheesemonkeysf in regards to eating habits? I was always really confused by the pyramid, but I GET THE PLATE NOW.
(read from bottom up)
@k8nowak - Subject line in email from @Sephora: "Tan for Free" Halfway expected body of email to say "Go outside, dumbass." It doesn't. Weird.
@samjshah - "In their report, performance is described in terms of the content and process task demands of the subject matter and the nature and..."
@samjshah - "...extent of cognitive activity likely to be observed in a particular assessment situation." BORING.
@samjshah - ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
@jybuell - . @sophgermain just sent me a 3 word text w/ no spaces and one word spelled wrong. So yeah, sounds like they're having fun.
@jybuell - my phone was dead. also yea i was drunk.
@cheesemonkeysf - @samjshah Best line of the night goes to @btwnthenumbers: In re KA, someone asked, "What's the goal again?" BTN pipes up with, "Badges!"
@ddmeyer - Just ran into @jybuell at the JiffyLube. Weird, but not in a weird way.
@druinok - One thing I've learned this week - you guys have ruined me! :) I hold other teachers to a MUCH higher standard because of your excellence
@woutgeo - Found out today that replacing the radio in a civic is a PITA. OTOH, feeling very manly right now.
@sophgermain - dued, @woutgeo, I had dinner tonight with my parent volunteer who apparently went to your workship this year. #smallworld
@ThinkThankThunk - Let's try to stay positive about ed reform. Conversations about feasible fixes are better than this-is-why-it's-broken. We know. Chill.
@DianeRavitch - Teach for joy. Teach for beauty. Teach to touch students' hearts and stir their imaginations. Teach to make them care.
@fnoschese - The only two badges I am proud to show off... #FathersDayAcademy yfrog.com/h4iqsdqj
@sarcasymptote - @infinigons since EVERYONE loves the guy working insanely on math problems in a bar on tuesday nights
@samjshah - great. our time was "planned from 8:30am-9pm. Now we have 3 readings and 3 written pieces to do. #waaaimtired
@samjshah - hm, still chugging away. it's 12.06. tired. #ugh #wowimtotallyawhinerwhenimtired
@park_star - I love summer time - everyone starts blogging up a storm!
@k8nowak - In geometry review, teacher: "distance formula? anybody?" kid: "r times t? *facepalm*
@ddmeyer - @k8nowak Feels dirty using Twitter as my gripe machine that's all. Tell me to get over myself.
@k8nowak - @ddmeyer oh at least 50% of my twitter use is "please validate my whining" so I can't talk. complain away.
@fnoschese - @ddmeyer @k8nowak Oh, c'mon. YOu know you love griping on Twitter. We all do. ;-)
@sarcasymptote - This typo (FROM OUR GRADUATION PROGRAM) seems almost too good to be an accident: lockerz.com/s/112899279
@sophgermain - @sarcasymptote amazeballs.
@untilnextstop - Math units should be organized around BIG IDEAS / themes in mathematics. Seems obvious but it's turning my world upside down. #klingsi11
@calcdave - @untilnextstop A month ago, I asked the district's Alg2 teachers what the main theme was for the class and they all threw up their hands.
@k8nowak - @calcdave @untilnextstop Funny, I would have said "maximize despair"
@calcdave - @k8nowak @untilnextstp Yeah, Alg2 seems to be our Franken-class, too. #everythingyouneedtoknowbutdoesntfitcoherentlyelsewhere
@jybuell - @calcdave @untilnextstop Alg 2 main theme is "things we can't put in other course so we're going to invent one"
@sarcasymptote - @jybuell @calcdave @untilnextstop in Algebra 2 in NY, the main theme is, "cover so much shit that no one will like math in the end."
@k8nowak - The six stages of NY Alg2Trig Regents grading: disgust, disbelief, amusement, apathy, ice cream sandwiches, inebriation
@samjshah - How much do y'all miss me? I miss you! Wish I could hang out virtually with you!
@lmhenry9 - @samjshah I miss you bunches of sparkly rainbows and unicorns. Looking forward to when you can be back on Twitter.
@cheesemonkeysf - We are bereft without you. I can barely feed and dress myself any more.
