Got A Goofy Saying?

In my classes, odd and interesting little phrases seem to always....

...pop up in our conversations.

At least when they first emerge, I always think they would make a good bumper sticker or saying on a T-shirt.

I do see strange things on shirts and on cars, and someone comes up with these lines, but it's a whole other step to design a shirt or have a bumper sticker printed.

And yes, this means I have a resource for you.

As they say in the infomercials, but wait, there's more...yes, if you have any great ideas for a birthday or holiday card, or any other kind of card, check out this website - http://www.caddylakgraffix.com/Writers_Guidelines.asp.

Here's a excerpt from their website - "We occasionally purchase captions and messages and will consider unsolicited verse submissions appropriate for our product line. These Writer's Guidelines will tell you exactly what we are looking for and who we want to sell products to."

They have all kinds of cards, for example you can check out Christmas cards here - http://www.caddylakgraffix.com/favorite_sites/favorite_sites_christmas.asp or birthday cards here - http://www.caddylakgraffix.com/favorite_sites/favorite_sites_birthdays.asp.

They also do all kinds of mugs, key fobs and refrigerator magnets. Check them out, it might be a good way to make some money for extra projects or field trips.

One more thing...if you have anyone in your circle of friends who like animals, you have to look at this website - http://www.caddylakgraffix.com/favorite_sites/favorite_sites_subcat_animals.asp.

Here's an example - know anyone who likes or collects frogs? Here's the site for you - http://www.caddylakgraffix.com/favorite_sites/Favorite_Sites_Frogs.asp.

Send us any links or other resources that you think any teachers, students or even just regular people might find interesting or useful.

Listen, read and speak. Make your new language your own.

My best to you as you make your way through this intriguing , constantly shifting linguistic landscape.
