These things have nothing to do with one another

-I recently learned that Caesar dressing has anchovies and raw egg yolk in it and that salmonella can be carried on the shell of an egg, not inside. So if you wash an egg with antibacterial soap before cracking it, you lower your chances of getting salmonella if you eat something with raw eggs in it.

- I will have four days of substitute teaching this week. I'm totally a productive member of society!

- Which brings me to this subbing quote (about my eyes, again. Apparently none of these children have ever seen green eyes):
Girl With Hand On Hips Who Is Looking At Me Distrustfully: "You are wearing contacts."
Me: "Nope."
GWHOHWILAMD: "Uh, yeah you are."
Me: "Nope, no contacts."
GWHOHWILAMD: "There is NO way your eyes are that color."

- Yesterday, I went shopping for "teacher" clothes. (I worked in an office for four years, but since I dealt with people mostly on the phone and not in person, I sometimes dressed a little less than professionally. Since I'm teaching now, I need to beef up my professional wardrobe.) I bought a pair of forest green dress pants for $10. Can I wear green pants without looking like a weirdo? Stay tuned to find out.

- I also found a sweater/ shawl thing that I'm not totally sure I understand, but it was $4, so I bought it. (If there was a shopping Olympics, I'd be sure to get a medal.) The sweater has long sleeves, the back is short like a shrug, it's open in the front, and the front hangs down long, like a shawl. I can't find a picture of what I mean, so hopefully the fashionistas among you know what I mean and can tell me how to wear it. Wrap the front around my neck? Leave it hanging? Use it to lasso misbehaving kids? Help!

I love how you bought something that you dont even know how to wear....hilarious!! I don't have the guts to do that one. I do however own a pair of panties that say "Password protected" and a shirt that says "Talk nerdy to me"
I'm such a dork...haha

J-Diggety said...

Haha!! I like the lasso idea for your new shawl/sweater :)

And green eyes are totally the coolest... says another green-eyed gal ;)

A new restaurant opened and the Caesar dressing is nothing like I've ever tasted before. All the other salads I've eaten haven't had the anchovy thing going on. Next time I go, I'm gonna ask what ingredients are in the dressing. Hey! Maybe I'll even get the recipe!

GWHOHWILAMD: "There is NO way your eyes are that color."

Uhh, I think we're gonna have to see a picture of your eye(s). ; )

Katherine said...

I found out that Caesar dressing had anchovies in it when I was about 9. I haven't eaten it since.

And totally can not help you on what ever it is you bought. I have a hard enough time pulling off normal clothes.

Sarah said...

everyone who i know that has one of those sweater/shawl things leave it hanging, but it might look cool wrapped.

Leah Rubin said...

Cool! Now when those wacky kids ask you how you got green eyes, tell them they match your pants. See what they think about that!

Jules said...

1. You cannot scare me out of Caesar salad dressing until you start talking calories
2. Kids are funny, and I mean that in so many different ways
3. If you ever reveal your identity and decide to come shopping in the Midwest, please take me with you because...
4. $10 pants rock and...
5. I can tell you that you may leave the sweater open, drape it over your shoulders, tie it in front or back, or hit anyone who gets in your way with it.

Bored Housewife said...

Agreeing with Jules about the sweater. You can also make Caesar salad with mayo or plain yogurt and it really tastes just the same.

yellA95 said...

Oh green eyes are AWESOME! And i know what you're talking about, either tie it in front (sometimes that doesn't look good though...) or just leave it hangin! It's actually in style now to do that...

The Girl In The Frame said...

Oh Tova, you should take a picture just of your eye so we can have an idea of why kids ask you that. :)
I have a friend whose green eyes are very light, like lemon(ish) green.

You make me laugh with your writing!

Jasmine said...

I get the same commentary on my eyes. They aren't really green or blue, and sometimes they change to one extreme to the other. I know how you feel!

Up Rooted said...

The sweater sounds like one from Victoria's secret. On the model she has it twisted in the front and tied in the back. It looks really cute. Kinda like a wrap. If the one you bought is as long you could try that look. Just go to their web site and look under sweaters.

Diane J. said...

Hmmm, as a mom of five boys, I'm going with the lasso option. LOL

You crack me up.

Sassy Britches said...

Those poor chilren need to get out more. Or you should at least capitalize on it in some crazy way to get them to do things you want.

I'm with everyone else on the shawl thing. It's kind of like a cardi, right? I've never thought I could pull it off because I like my booty covered. BUT (no pun intended), I think you could wrap it around your waist or flip it over your shoulders or swat flies with it, the list really is endless.

I am REALLY interested in the outcome of the green pants issue. You'd really have to accessorize well to pull it off wihtout looking like a leprechaun or forest ranger. Keep us posted!

Sassy Britches said...

Also, my apologies for the incorrect spelling all over the place. I just got all excited and was typing fast and furious! ;)

Yvonne Todd said...

Love Cesar salad, with anchovy paste. It wouldn't be the same without them. Sometimes I even add anchovies to the salad.
About the shawl thing. I have one too. Love it, but I've found that I need to be about 9" taller and 108lbs to pull off the look. Julies has it right tho, and you can wear it "backwards" too.

Cora said...

*le sigh*

I love teaching.

Well, most of the time anyway.

:-)

NINA said...

God! I didn't know Ceasar salad dressing had anchovies in it...
Thanks for the info...
Oh, and Im sort of back!

mel said...

I have a few of those "sweater shawls" I love them! The best way to wear them is with a thin tank top underneath and belted. Thin belts look great too. Here's a pic. http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/img-thing?.out=jpg&size=l&tid=10129499

Eddy said...

LOL My cousin tried on a sweater like that the last time we went shopping together, and she couldn't figure out how the heck to wear it either. Watching her try was too funny.

Anyway, this video should help:

How to wear a wrap sweater

Hello Tova! People never seem to reconcile the fact that an egg comes out of a chicken’s bottom! I guess in America it's kind of different because if television is to be believed (is it?) eggs are bleached and treated before they reach the consumer, but over here (U.K)they aren't and come complete with lil smudges of unmentionables and feathers! I always antibac my eggs before cracking.

Re Green trousers – sounds like fun!

Tova! I have a wrap sweater that I leave open but I see some people pulling off the tied look with success...

@Coco I had no idea that eggs being bleached and/or treated was abnormal. I mean I get brown eggs but they have been treated. If I found a feather I'd die.

Eve said...

Haha... that's funny. I have green eyes too and I do wear contacts, but my eyes are still green. So people ask me all the time if I'm wearing contacts and I say yes, then my husband reminds me that they mean 'colored' contacts. ;)
