6:15 Uh oh. Someone is having problems...A teacher friend of mine sent this to me.
Teacher Shows Up To First Day Of Work Drunk And Without Pants
An Oklahoma schoolteacher reportedly showed up for her first day at work drunk and pantless. As reported by the Tusla World, Lorie Ann Hill came to work earlier this week intoxicated then removed her pants. Oklahoma police were notified by school officials who found Hill "in a room kind of disoriented." By the time the police arrived at Wagoner High School, the teacher was in the principal's office, wearing shorts that school officials gave her. Apparently, after being questioned by the police, Hill admitted that she had been drinking vodka.
Fox23 reported that two Wagner High School teachers found her in a classroom -- which she claimed was her own. The police reportedly found an empty cup in her car, however no DUI charges were filed against Hill because there are no "credible witnesses" that saw her drink and then drive. Hill was released from jail on Monday August 4th. (Newser)
We Gotta Ask
Seeing cases like this where your child's safety is being put at risk, would you prefer for your child to attend public school, private school or to be home schooled?
What repercussions do you think Hill should face after this stunt?
Is suspension from work sufficient? Is this a big deal since she wasn't found by students nor was she teaching a class?
6:45 Dominique Ansel's Latest Invention Is A Sundae In A Can: Cronut creator Dominique Ansel is at it again, this time with a new dessert you never thought you wanted: an ice cream sundae in a can. As a collaboration with fashion designer Lisa Perry, Ansel came up with the “Pop It! Ice Cream Sundae in a Can" which features root-beer and stracciatella ice creams, mascarpone semifreddo, macerated cherries, honey marshmallows and miniature cherry meringues. The aforementioned sweets are stuffed into a chocolate-lined soup can and frozen. The dessert in a can goes for $15. However, true to his habit of creating treats in limited quantities, the Pop It! cans were only available for one day, this past Saturday (August 2nd). (New York Post) Booo!

8:15 WE REALLY LIKE TO DRINK BEER _ Bourbon may be booming and more wineries are cropping up all over the nation, yet Americans still prefer a cold brew over a glass of wine or whiskey. According to Gallup, 41% of U.S. drinkers say they typically drink beer, compared with 31% who generally prefer wine and 23% who reach for liquor. It's the biggest gap between beer and wine in six years.
8:45 Friday Toy Memory: Kool-Aid! I just loved the delicious artificially flavored beverages of my childhood. I remember watching my mom open the packet into the pitcher, the 2 cups of sugar she added, and the fact that I could polish off the entire pitcher in an afternoon. The adverising of the smiling pitcher crashing through walls worked on me. In fact, here's one example. Ha!
