Vote For The Worst

I don't know if the website Vote For The Worst has any appreciable impact on the American Idol voting or not, but you gotta admit, they are having an awful lot of fun in the process.

Now that Sanjaya is gone (my bets are on him shilling for shampoo or toothpaste- and real soon), the VFTW people have focused thier sights on Phil Stacey or as the pictures will show- "Nosphilatu"

Talk about separated at birth!

Thing is though, Phil really can sing, unlike Sanjayayas.

"Hanami" or Cherry Blossom time

Today we rounded up all the kids at the middle school and headed off to the old Fukuoka castle grounds for a little time under the cherry blossoms.
The blossoms are past their peak of beauty, but not too far past it, and it is still quite beautiful. The weather was a perfect 65 degrees with a bright blue sky.
It was a lot better way to spend the afternoon than in a classroom~this was a unanimous decision!
This motley crew is the 6th grade class, most of which are in my ESL class, and all of which were in my charge today as John, their homeroom teacher had to stay behind at the school today.
