QUOTE OF THE DAY (OR MORE): "No, no. You don't understand. This is an '89 Calico. I'm pretty sure that exceeds the Kelly Blue Book value. The cat's totaled." --A comedian whose name I forget talking about a vet who presents a $3,000 bill for a 12-year-old cat

  6. Manic Mommy, the teacher and I emailed back and forth a bit. I felt compelled to write a follow-up email that went something like this: "The irony of what I've asked you to do is not lost on me..." and he responded something like this: "it wasn't lost on me either..." lol. Shawn - hmmmm. I'm sure they're used to it with HIM, anyway...

    Jeff - please stay away from my children, thank you.

    Carolee, shut UP! You're kidding me. Wow! Thanks so much! My first award! I'm having another glass of wine to celebrate! yahoo!

Please feel free to let me know what you think - especially if you like it. If not, please reconsider (just kidding!) I can take constructive criticism! Really I can...
