1. I noticed that one of my second grade boys has a Twilight backpack. It says Team Eduard. I’m pretty sure he has no idea what that means…
2. Maurice Sendak died today. He was 83 years old. He was a controversial children’s author and illustrator, but I will always love “Where the Wild Things Are.” Here are a few of his own words and an illustration to send him off:
“And he sailed off through night and day
and in and out of weeks
and almost over a year
to where the wild things are.”
3. The “Castle” season finale was amazing. Amazing!! Best quote of the episode:
“Every morning I bring you a cup of coffee, just so I can see a smile on your face. Because I think you are the most remarkable, maddening, challenging, frustrating, person I’ve ever met. And I love you Kate, and if that means anything to you, if you care about me at all, just don’t do this.” Tear!
4. 14-year-old Nick on “The New Girl” knew how to make an excellent mix tape. Best part of the season finale: Everyone’s super cool dance moves.
