Great meme! I just might have to steal that. I just did something on teaching after having my toes stepped on in another blog.I hate when people put teachers down. My temper flares in a heartbeat!

Please go check out my blog!

From the looks of your meme, we share many of the same ideas. :)
Have a great day! Stay warm!

3. What’s a word that rhymes with DOOR?
My first thought was not DOOR. And surprisingly, it didn't begin with an "H" !

HoosierGirl5 said...

Tookie - I'm on my way. Glad you liked it. We teachers have to stick together.

Sushiboy - are drawing on your Indiana knowledge! There are Speedways everywhere!

Metalmom - Well....what was it?


Sushiboy said...

Yah, I was just thinking today of how much I miss some of the burger joints out there. Ralley's and White Castle to name a few. And the chicken places out there! Church's and Popeye's Ah man, just can't find good fried chicken everywhere out west like you can in IN.

Sushi - You can't beat White Castle! Why don't you, Superwoman, and the kids take a road trip this summer and let me treat you to some?

E.Craig - At least I'm honest about it!
