Let's share, shall we? [Click the button above for FF how-to's and gentle guidelines.]
***A student wrote (in a story that I was grading)..."A helicopter landed, and an old guy (about 50) rescued them." I guess that means I'm three years away from being an old lady. [I gave him an F.] Only kidding, of course.
***Great News! Robert did not make it onto the F-List this week! (the cut-off was yesterday)
***A high school friend and I recently reconnected on Facebook. A few days later, she left this humorous message on my wall:
"I have to share: was checking your cooking blog out and thought I was printing a bean recipe, then a casserole one...it wasn't one page or 3, it was 38 pages x 3!!! If ya need a copy, I got a couple extra!! Thankfully, made your SIL's baked beaners last night, and the troops love 'em! Thought this would give you a chuckle and smile. Can't wait to try casserole!" Thanks, Lynn!
***WOOHOO!!! I won Michelle's BlogHer $200 VISA Gift Card Giveaway!!! I'm going to
***BTW, Amon Maternity is having a SUPER SALE from now through February 15th. If you use the coupon code SUPERSALE, you will get 50% of your purchase and free shipping if you buy two items. That's a serious discount! And since I have an ad in my sidebar for Belly Dance Maternity, I thought I'd mention them, too. They also have some beautiful-looking products (which, thankfully, I'm not in the market for, but in case you are...)
***A moody, female 6th grade student of mine "forgot" to take her schoolwork home tonight. I called her dad and offered to drop it off on my way home (it was on the way). He was very appreciative! (I'm pretty sure she wasn't.) Can't wait to get the evil eye when I go in tomorrow [insert maniacal cackle here.]
***So far, I've read Fragments from just five contributor to last weeks' record breaking 51 Friday Fragments posts!! They may back up all the way to spring break, but I am going to read every one, never fear! I've been just buried in work this week. Seriously; I've been burning the midnight oil like crazy and have not been playing on Facebook or doing anything fun. That said, I am happy and inspired at work and doing good things for kids. If you've missed me at your blog, know that it's not for lack of desire to know what's going on with you. Please leave a little update for me in the comments and let me know if I MUST stop by ASAP!haha [I'm saving the FFF Award for next week.]
***What's the point in collecting cookbooks if you never open most of them? I purged my cookbook stash of 60% of the books I had. All are new and barely touched. Coincidentally, the next day, the high school asked for donations of items for a silent auction. I donated the books. A cute basket, some measuring spoons, etc. combined with a handful of cookbooks would make a great auction item!
***Dear Anonymous Advertiser: You're so inspiring! That's right; the advertisements you keep adding to my archived posts have inspired me to stop allowing anonymous comments on my blog. I won't miss you....
Okay, now it's your turn! Leave a link to your FRIDAY FRAGMENTS post, and I will keep them all nice and warm until I have "dug out from under," I promise! :)
