It's 2 R's, one B, 2 E's, y'all

If real life weren't getting in my way, I'd have a lot to tell you about everything that's been going on. Lately my calendar has started to look like a doily or something, with little holes all around it letting in the light. I like to be busy, but I have to have time to stop & think, as well. About what? you ask---life, the universe, and everything else, I guess. What to put on my schedule next, maybe, or who I need to fish out of my address book. I have always been That Person: the one who keeps up with everyone when no one else does. I have never been regular about it, or very good at it; it's just that my friends are worse at it, for the most part. But if there's someone in the crowd that you haven't talked to in 3 years, chances are I have (it might have been 18 months ago, though). I hate to let go of people I've known forever. It's worse than giving anything else up. Ironically, however, I hold a grudge worse than anyone I know. Go figure.

So, this week for me is yet another crazy one. I have plans for Mon. (dinner w/family)---Tues. (cookout; more on that later)---Weds. (a new dance lesson; we'll see how that goes)---and Thurs., of course, is the 1st of 2 Memphis Blogger Bashes. Maybe people will start to spell my name right afterward. I'm the blog nazi, after all, and I insist on proper grammar, capitalization, and punctuation (or else [what, I'm not sure]).

Don't feel bad — everyone likes to add an 'A' to my name where there's not one.

The way I figure it, at least they're getting the pronunciation right.

Forgive me, oh Great Mistress of the Local Blogosphere.

And as for your repeated questions about anonymous comments. Since they're anonymous even if I make them registered, I've never bothered. Even anyone got libelous I might.

I not even. Sheesh. Effing typo demons.

No if not I. Fine. I give up. Anything else misspekalled STAYS! And to think, I'm an English teacher. Sigh...

You have me cracking up, David!
I just love the New Spelling (remember the New Math?).
Seriously though, you're giving up teaching, right?

You're lucky. I got an email earlier tonight that actually managed to misspell my name so badly that she didn't get a single letter right.

She called me "Asshole".

My Mom really needs to spellcheck.

Why, Serrabee? Are you insinuating I should? :-P I finished up teaching May 31, so I can start law school (one week to go.) I'm still coaching though. *Resists the urge to point out that his wreslters making the All-American team is totally because of great coaching.:-)*
