Hello Fun Seekers. Welcome to “Fun Friday.”
Before we get down to bid’ness today, I want to encourage you with two things.
First: I write these blog posts very fast. So they sometimes contain typos. I can’t catch them all. So if you ever spot a typo — for a present post or a previous one — please let me know in the comments section. I would greatly appreciate it. You are my proof readers.
(Firefox is a much better browser. If you don’t have it, I recommend it. It’s a free download.)
I’m not a fan of toolbars on my browser, but I’m diggin’ the Alexa toolbar. It’s notified me of several helpful articles I would have never seen otherwise.
The toolbar has a lot of nifty buttons, and if you’re a blogger, it will help your blog – and all other blogs that you visit – in the Alexa rankings.
The toolbar is a free download. Just click here to download it. Install and you’re set.
Now on to the subject at hand . . .
Many, many moons ago in a galaxy far, far away I used to teach high school. And at the end of each school year, when the yearbooks rolled out, I would write on my blackboard a list of “what not to write in someone’s yearbook.”
It was an annual tradition. Some of the other teachers liked it so much they began stealing it, posting it on their blackboards. So I was forced to copyright the material.
But now . . . for the first time ever . . . I am making my erstwhile, infamous yearbook list public and available for popular consumption.
You are free to steal it. I only ask that if you use it, you put a link to my blog at the end of the stolen property: http://frankviola.org
One short anecdote. When some of my students finished reading the list, they’d softly say (with head pointed down) . . . “now what am I going to write in my friends’ yearbooks?”
So all of you teenagers, 20-somethings, 30-somethings, parents who have high school kids, and school teachers out there, here’s the list.
If it gives you a smile, pass on the joy (via the Share buttons or links below). And answer the question at the end.
Use at your own discretion . . . or risk:
- I was the first to sign your crack.
- I had a great year, hope you did too!
- Keep on truckin’.
- Stay sweet.
- Have a great summer.
- Keep in touch (K.I.T.)
