Another little school bit: At school today, one of my 7th graders told me she has a hamster named “Jeffy,” or so I thought. It was awesome because Jeffy was my first cat. He was only named Jeffy after Samantha was out of the question because he was a boy. Anyway, this 7th grader is way cooler, because her hamster is actually “Geoffie” which I think is just great. Plus, she had a video of Geoffie on her camera–of him in a hamster ball, and her sort of shoving him around in it on a linoleum floor. 7th graders rock sometimes.

I like the title Rockahontas even more now because last year I had a colleague whose first name was Hontas, short for Pocahontas. And she’s not Native American either…just a family name.
