    Hi Katy!So nice of you to drop by. I\’ve spend some time reading your stuff and we are so simliar! Books, teaching, likes and dislikes… It looks like I get the honor of commenting first, so that is pretty awesome! Thank you for the nice things you said. Wow, I just can\’t believe people want to read my stuff… I\’ll be back because I want to check out the links you have for educators. Been compiling my own for a while and haven\’t published them yet. Take care.Kelly

  2. Laura says:

    We have a few things in common, like:
    there are more, but I know it is annoying listing the numbers like that…

  3. Darcy says:

    Cheesy pop songs and boybands rule the world!  According to me anyway… 🙂

  4. Christina says:

    LOL @ "I think shopping & pedicures count as therapy".  Too funny!  Yet, I know it\’s true .. lol.  I\’m going to do a comedy blog on pedicures soon — so many people mention them, ya know? I did this blog a month ago called A Lower Leg & Ankle Massage – Just for you! and I got tons of comments .. mostly private .. lol .. Anyway, I never mentioned feet once (I don\’t think), yet half of the women who commented to me about it talked about feet and toes .. lol.  I just have to blog some of this good stuff .. lol.
    My serious note:  The heartiest congratulations on your work with Special Ed.  I adore you for that!  My little brother has Downs.  He has been the inspiration of my life for all of his now 45 years. Twas the great work of many people like you who helped him to be the fine gentleman he is today.  You feel rewarded today?  Just wait, Young Miss, for a decade or two to come and for you to see your students then.  You will cry many happy tears to see how many have developed and then you will truly feel the reward of your career, yet you will shed some sad tears for those who continue to struggle.

    Second comment of the day: Ha! I love this list. I can relate to so much of it–maybe even write the exact same things on a list of my own! I also read the Hurricane Katrina one–I\’m originally from Pensacola and used to travel to New Orleans often–hurricanes are old hat to me…moving here to Oklahoma, about 30 min. SW of OKC, TORNADOS have been a HUGE fear…I used to live in Cabot, Arkansas, not too far from Little Rock actually, so I know that you deal with tornados there too. Anyhow, great space you have, enjoy your week, and I\’ll definitely be back. Toni

  7. Rodney says:

    Really enjoyed your space. Motivates me to do something with my neglected space. Keep up the good work. Teaching is a sometimes thankless but noble profession. I admire you for teaching!

  8. Unknown says:

    you should email me with one of those comments

  9. PointlessBallyhoo says:

    Thanks for stopping by my space and letting me know the reason for the slowness. I think I\’m going to procrastinate changing the address, though. LOL.

    I\’m with you on #\’s 3, 4, 17, 29 (for the purses!), 96, and 100 (I watch "CSI: Miami," "CSI: NY," and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent." Do "Crossing Jordan" and "Medium" count?)

    How can you not like to watch movies? I this only because people don\’t like it when you talk through them, or is there another reason?
