It's should be a holiday. Yes. It should.

According to some posts on the internet, Ferris Bueller's day off was June 5, 1985.
Now I didn't want to be fooled, so I looked it up.  According to IMDB, the Cubs game that is referenced in the movie did indeed take place on June 5th 1985.  The movie started filming in the fall of 1985...but the pretend day of Ferris' day off was June 5th.


Here's to Ferris.
And all of the students who are getting schoolitis this time of year.

Emma's office is right there. Daly plaza.  Can you see the Picasso?
Now that red structure that I see is not in Daly plaza.
(random movie making)


The original flash mob.
Thanks Ferris.



  1. All I ask is that you never discuss this movie with my husband. We saw it during his first years as a teacher and it was one of those comedies that struck way too close to home. Not Funny, to say the least. Poor first year teachers. John has had a few Ferris' in his tenure...there is a reason we have no children named Cody or Travis!

    I remember spring always struck around October 1st for me. So not a student in high school (-:

    Happy Friday, Donna Elsie! Love you!


    1. Oh man. As you know I was a goody goody straight arrow so this is far from my reality. Is that why I hate Napoleon Dynamite. I am a dorky loser with s side pony?

  2. Zach's students are way over the top this week. Perhaps this is why!!!

    Love Ferris. Love this post. Love this movie, kind of a love letter to my favorite city.

    Pardon me, while I sneak out of my office early today...

  4. Today is my hubby 's birthday!! Good reason to goof off :-)

      Happy belated birthday to your DH. Not a fan of FBDO, but as an educator I understand teens in classrooms during the spring...perhaps start school for them at 1PM and go until 9PM, dinner instead of lunch at school. ;-) love and prayers, jep

    I love that movie and now I have an excuse to watch it each year. Thanks for sharing the date. Also, the red piece is a Calder sculpture in federal plaza just a few blocks from the Picasso statue in daley plaza.

  6. The parade scene is one of my favorites. So silly, so unlikely -- yet very funny. Dressing like Ferris, Sloan and Cameron was a popular choice during Molly's high school years. :)


Hello. So nice to see you. Would you like to leave a comment? Be very kind.
