Calling all Saucy Readers: I Need Your Help!

Hello my faithful followers! The time has come for me to start a new blog...don't worry. You don't have to follow it. Here's what's going on: I am in a class at Hopkins called Paperless Classroom, the purpose of which is obvious, and I'm super into it for many reasons:

Reason #1: I'm all for going green. I threw out so much paper last year and hauled home even more to recycle, but I'd just rather not use so much.

Reason #2: They are severely limiting how much copy paper each teacher is allowed at my school. Basically I have 1,000 sheets to last me a month. I have 120 students every day in 2 different subjects, so even if I make class sets I still have to make 60 copies. Also, I already spend too much money on my classroom. I don't want to spend more buying paper.

Reason #3: I HATE HATE HATE waiting in line at the copier in the morning. I have much better things to do.

Anyway, so for my class, I need to start a new blog that is for the class, and potentially can be my teacher-y tech blog, but despite all my skills, I am having a hard time coming up with a name for my new blog. I want it to be something that works for a teacher, but still sounds kinda quirky and, you know, like me. So, now is the time dear readers to contribute! Your mission:

Give me names, or give me "F"!
(for not starting a blog)

(Heh, heh, get it? It sorta phonetically matches.)

Or to ask more nicely, please leave lots of comments on this post with lots of ideas for names for my new blog. The winner will get a fabulous prize! Which may or may not actually be fabulous...or even a prize...but um...I will dedicate my new blog to you! (it's okay, you still don't have to read it.) So, let the ideas pour in!

Many thanks,

Teacher Dani

I promise I have been giving it some thought, but I'm not very good at names. What classes are you teaching? Maybe you could just give it a name and refer to it like it's a person. You could do it after a historical character like Bonaparte, Plato, or Hancock (it would be kind of fun to say "Consult Hancock for your homework!"). Or do you have a favorite piece of literary genius you could use for a play on words like you did with "give me names or give me f" like a book title or poem? Or you could do a funny acronym and use a word from what you're teaching like "TORY."
Anyway, just some ideas that might help you come up with something. I'll keep thinking about it. =)

All great ideas...I will have to dwell on this. :)

Dad still insists you must use D-5 somehow in the title, but you know how quirky (weird) your Dad is.

I'm having a hard time giving you suggestions because I'm so preoccupied with the fact that you may not continue with Deliciously Saucy, Fastidious and Precise when you have a new blog taking all of your time.

Good luck going 'Green'. I hope you can make good use of all the 'learnin' you get in your class. Good luck with namin your new blog and I'll put my tiny brain to work to find some suggestions.

Love you!

Don't worry, I'm definitely keeping DSF&P. If I let a blog go, it'll be my new one.
