I’m Here

No really, I didn’t forget you. Just got busy away from the ‘puter. Plus, like junior high, isn’t it better to play hard-to-get? More tomorrow, promise!

Published Poet – Whoa

I need to look through the archives to see if I ever mentioned that I used my 2004 Magnetic Poetry Calendar to write a poem and submit it to the Magnetic Poetry website. [update: Yes, I did.] You tell them what kit you used (there are like 20 or more now) and if they deem […]

Wise words

Me: How do you know it’s the same guy? Maybe it’s his evil twin?Junior: Hey, not everyone has an evil twin…

Ouchy Boo Boo Tummy

I think I got food poisoned yesterday. I’m going to say it was from lunch, because I started to not feel very well before I even ate dinner. It only got worse from there. I stayed home sick today, which is saying something, because I don’t get sick days. I just couldn’t see driving all […]

First Grade Valentine Fun

Okay, don’t read this if you’re at work and you aren’t supposed to be doing anything that involves laughing. Mr. Crunchy grabs Valentine’s Day in public schools and gives it a good kick in the pants. I don’t want to spoil the funny, but the 2nd to the last sentence of the first paragraph made […]

And Another Thing

Where have all the regulars gone? I’m starting to get a little nervous that I haven’t seen/heard from many of you in the past week or so. Did you guys charter a bus to head out to LA for the Awards Season?
