Jason loves Pizza!

Jason loves Pizza!
Originally uploaded by Jason In Japan.

So I assigned my freshman English students to make a pizza for their homework. The "English learning" part of the assignment was to read the recipe in English and follow the instructions to make a "traditional pizza" including the crust.

Some students made their own style pizza, on toast or gyoza skin, completely missing the point of the assignment, but most of my kids did a good job. They had to take a picture of the pizza and post it to our campus forum for my class.

Two students made this pizza and told me it was called the "Jason love pizza." :)

It's nice to know someone cares. ;D

LEGO Sandcrawler

Amazing custom-built Lego Sandcrawler from Star Wars: Episode 4.

Not the most exciting vehicle in the Holy Trilogy, but
an amazing job that took 9 months and contains over 10,000 Lego pieces.

I had some pretty awesome Star Wars toys when I was a kid, but
I was already 8 years old when the first one came out, so most
of the toys were bought for and played with by my younger bother, who was only 2 years old when Star Wars: Episode 4 came out in 1977, but was the perfect age of 5 when The Empire Strikes Back came out in 1980.
