She's headed to Mississippi to do a stint in a program like Teach for America except it's Teach for Mississippi.
Okay, that's not the name of it -- but it's that type of program.
She and I chatted about Lady Ga Ga.
I called her Lady Gag Gag.
Her: She's a performer -- she's our Madonna.
Me: I'm assuming that you mean Madonna as in "Like a Virgin," only not.
Her: Yes, that Madonna. Lady Ga Ga is out to shock and get attention -- she doesn't claim to be a singer.
Me: She's not "my" Madonna, btw.
Her: Semantics, semantics -- you know what I mean.
Me: You're about to teach school -- there is no such thing as "you know what I mean."
Her: *rolls eyes*
Well, Little Miss Teach for Mississippi -- this cartoon's for you -- cause it sums up how I understand Lady Ga Ga.
ETA: My nephew sent me a link to an article written about Lady Ga Ga in June of 2009 -- if you're interested --- http://www.slate.com/id/2220502
