Best Practice

Inservice day coming up.


I love to sit at the feet of experts.






Authority delivered through jargon is the balm in Gilead.


Afterwards, the spectral form of the expert floats around me, reminding me of how most effectually to disperse curriculum.



































I know, I know, I just posted yesterday.

But I forgot that I was supposed to do this thing, so I needed to plug it onto the end of some kind of post.

The thing I needed to do is show you this picture:

That's me in my pajamas.


But it is also the lovely Asplenia, who blogs at asplenia.blogspot.com, and who very nicely made me sell her a shirt that says "I'm stupid and I am with me."

It was my only Zazzle sale. So far.

So yep, I have started a Zazzle store.

There is really nothing there yet though.

Here's where you come in.

Asplenia made me do it, and if there is something you want, you'll have to make me do it too, because I have the design sensibilities of a donut.

Tell me what Gweenbrick crap you might possibly buy, and I'll make it for you.

Beware though, Zazzle price gouges like you wouldn't believe.

Drop me a line at gweenbrick@hotmail.com

Oh the store, right. Here it is: http://www.zazzle.com/gweenbrick

Thank you all so much for reading gweenbrick and commenting so much!

And thank YOU, Asplenia, for being my human guinea pig!!

  1. So, pedagogy is a wrinkled old woman in a pink sweatshirt. That explains so many things. You rock.

    1. Thanks thescousewife! Pedagogy can take on many forms, but for me it has always been old and pink

  2. Ha, that's a great shirt! (I agree about Zazzle prices... I want to be like "IT'S NOT ME! IT'S THEM! THEY CHARGE $20 FOR A PLAIN MUG!")

    1. Yeah its a rip-Marianne at We Band of Mothers had all these great ideas for me on how to sell stuff without zazzle, but then I got lazy and just picked zazzle anyways.
      The moral of the story is that good ideas are wasted on whiners.

  3. Love the facial hair, leg hair, and sensible shoes… Pedagogy’s lesson in sensible fashion... priceless –lol- Bet she has an aroma aura of old body patchouli.

    1. Ewwww-old body patchouli-I am worried that someday someone will describe my breath as smelling that way

  4. "Uuuuuuse the foreskinnnn" has just become my new motivational phrase, replacing "My biological cock is ticking".

  5. My favorite was always, while I was being kicked, spit on, pinched, punched in the mouth, and having my hair pulled, there was always a behavioral SPECIALIST (because I'm just a behavioral THERAPIST) standing there saying, "Use positive reinforcement... use positive terminology!" As in... what? "Good job not killing Dani!! Good job!"

    1. Exactly. The layers of bullshit in special education are astounding, especially when you consider how many tax dollars go towards funding the nincompoops who consider themselves experts.

  6. With this post I believe you have truly convinced aLL of your readers what line of work nOt to get into .... (I love writing sentences that begin and end with prepositions.) I will search for something Gweenbrickish that should be created ...

    1. Haha-what you wrote right there is one of my favorite comments ever.
      It makes me think the whole point of this blog has been to scare people away from special ed.
      Job well done?

    2. Sí, Señor, eXcelente!

      My recommendation about Gweenbrick items would be 'brand recognition'. I would want to make sure there is a consistent look and feel to your items, so that people know its your item. For instance, the other item in your online store has your recognizable art, but the clothing has just words. So maybe a 'Gweenbrick' word logo?

    1. Thanks Mandy! Though whenever I have been called a something "machine", it has never been good: eating machine, drinking machine, pooping machine; I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and trust you meant it in a good way.

  8. I think any of your catchy phrases would be good on a shirt. I scrolled thru a bunch of your old post looking for one to jump out and me, but they all jumped out at me. (I am scared of my computer now, what with the jumping letters and all-- thanks for that.)

    1. Thanks for always being so encouraging, MOV! If anything particularly strikes you as a good idea, let me know. I really suck at this kind of thing, but it would be so cool to actually sell gweenbrick crap

  9. He he he - no! - HA HA HA HA! I thought pedagogy was the action of staring at our feet.
    There have been so many things I thought should be in a Gweenbrick store - I'll have a browse. That's a good one ^ but I have too many issues to wear it...huh, maybe it would be good therapy.

    1. Since you are an artist, Julie, I specifically tag you to be my merchandise designer. You can have half of the ten cents that Zazzle pays me.

    2. Hyperbole must sell a lo------t of stuff eh?

  10. How about "Uuuuuse the foreskinnnnnn!!"? Too much, maybe?

  11. Oh my.

    I was once sent on a three day course in "social pedogogy". I only signed up because it meant getting paid overtime.

    And I thought it was going to be about feet.
    And I am definitely going to be getting something from your shop - I just need to have a think about what.

  12. Well very cool about your store and your first sale! And what a horrific post this was - but of course I enjoyed it lol.

    I'll keep my eyes open for fun Gweenbrick stuff that could work on a T-shirt. It will be fun!

  13. I want a drawing of you on a hooded sweatshirt.

  15. I dreamt that I was part of a Gweenbrick cartoon last night. Scary, huh?
