Well, today I should be working out and dieting, but I already consumed a Mocha Latte and a Cinnamon Crunch bagel from Bread Co., my vice. Perhaps I will do better later today. I have a ton of grading to do, as my quarter grades will be due Monday, March 15th, of course, the Monday after my illustrious 38th birthday. I almost made myself 39 in a conversation with my sister this morning. We shared stories and solutions about our dreaded eczema. My hubby started laughing about the "hand" box my sister covets - a box of medications and solutions she guards with her life. The eczema on my finger is so bad my students don't want me to hand out papers for fear of "getting" something! :-) If they just knew that **STRESS** makes the flare-ups worse! Well, today I should get going - I have to take pants to the tailor, deposit my tuition reimbursement check, get some new pillows for the bed, buy cat food, and pick up prescriptions. I really need to get my transcript from Webster so I can finish the process at Rockwood. And I need to peg my hubby to show me how to get my images hosted. Not to mention, the reading I have to do in Growing Up Gifted for my survey class. Hopefully, I'll find my creative literary magazine downstairs and begin writing creatively, once again! Until then....

Ohhhh yeahhh baby - the 80s WERE my life!

You're The Guns of August!

by Barbara Tuchman

Though you're interested in war, what you really want to know is what
causes war. You're out to expose imperialism, militarism, and nationalism for what they
really are. Nevertheless, you're always living in the past and have a hard time dealing
with what's going on today. You're also far more focused on Europe than anywhere else in
the world. A fitting motto for you might be "Guns do kill, but so can

Which Lord of the Rings person do you want? (many out comes for anyone plus pics to)
brought to you by Quizilla
OMG! I almost died when I saw this quiz. Being a middle school English teacher and all, I thought I would test just how well I practice what I preach......well, lemme show ya!

Grammar Fuhrer
You are the grammar Fuhrer. All bow to your
authority. You will crush all the inferior
people under the soles of your jackboots, and
any who question your motives will be
eliminated. Your punishment is being the bane
of every other person's existence, because
you're constantly contradicting stupidity.
Everyone will be gunning for you. Your dreams
of a master race of spellers and grammarians
frighten the masses. You must always watch your
back. If only your power could be used for good
instead of evil.

What is your grammar aptitude?

Responsible Lady
Fulfilling Duty. Whether this is based on what
society has taught you or your own sense of
right and wrong, you have a strong sense of
duty that you need to fulfill in order to feel
right about yourself. This doesn't necessarily
mean you're driven by guilt, though. It could
just as easily be the tickle of pleasure you
get from doing the right thing. ^_^ You just
have to be careful not to forget that other
things are also important sometimes, like
looking after yourself. Please rate my test, if
you liked it.

You are Form 0, Phoenix: The Eternal.

"And The Phoenix's cycle had reached
zenith, so he consumed himself in fire. He
emerged from his own ashes, to be forever

Some examples of the Phoenix Form are Quetzalcoatl
(Aztec), Shiva (Indian), and Ra-Atum
The Phoenix is associated with the concept of life,
the number 0, and the element of fire.
His sign is the eclipsed sun.

As a member of Form 0, you are a determined
individual. You tend to keep your sense of
optomism, even through tough times and have a
positive outlook on most situations. You have
a way of looking at going through life as a
journey that you can constantly learn from.
Phoenixes are the best friends to have because
they cheer people up easily.

You are Cleopatra of the Nile. The great
biographer of the time, Plutarch, wrote of
Cleopatra, 'Her actual beauty, it is said, was
not in itself so remarkable that none could be
compared with her, or that no one could see her
without being struck by it, but the contact of
her presence, if you lived with her, was
irresistible . . . It was a pleasure merely to
hear the sound of her voice, with which, like
an instrument of many strings, she could pass
from one language to another . . .' You have a
spark in you that draws other people to you.
Indeed, you are drawn to others because you are
always curious. People can talk to you; and
you have a passion in life to know, live, love,
and learn. Please rate my quiz.

You have a mysterious kiss. Your partner never
knows what you're going to come up with next;
this creates great excitement and arousal never
knowing what to expect. And it's sure to end
in a kiss as great as your mystery.
