Blogger of Note? Très BON!


Shall We Dance

This PhotoShopped marvel by Daniel Kurtzman. The real Dancing With The Stars

are Mario Barrett & Karina Smirnoff.

Welcome to Our Nation's Capital. I wanted to tell you that DC is not all about politicians & those with whom they share cozy relationships, but then I had the brilliant idea to re-post this Superior Snap from the election that was so much about Hope.

So, it's my sincere hope that y'all didn't just exit my digs here when you first saw the 4th & the 3rd letters of the alphabet, snuggled up so closely together. The fact is, we here in the DC metro area like our politics & our steaks about the same way...a little overdone.

But there's so much more to do here than politico-watch. And I'd like to welcome you to my humble blog to tell you of a few of your options, should you ever visit the Land of the Free & the Home of the Cherry Blossoms.

I'm Mrs. Scribe & I'm just tickled that Pam & Sandy from Words of Wisdom have deemed my little space on the Internet a Blog of Note. My 2 intrepid bloggy friends started this enterprise in March as a way to recognize content over commercialism out here in the blogosphere.

I started blogging because I love the conversation. I try to post when I have something to say~which often can be daily, but most recently has been sporadic. With the school year winding down, we teachers tend to pick up the already frantic pace.

As a 16-year veteran of a public high school in the DC 'Burbs, I write about my life: teachers as babysitters, mothers as teachers, children as mentors & as friends. But I also take the time to stop & smell the roses, posting about the exploits of my hubby, Mr. Fairway & my 2 mostly grown chicas, Ella Numera Una y Ella Numera Dos.

I'm a 5th-generation Texan who was born in Norwalk, CT & my motto has always been "Question Authority." I'm the newspaper & yearbook adviser at Our Humble High School & my chief nemesis, Principal Man, can attest to the fact that I prefer, when the spirit moves, to march to the beat of a different drummer.

But enough about moi! Sandy & Pam wanted me to alert you to 3 of my favorite posts. I've decided to focus on school-related rants, in honor of that ticker posted at the top of my sidebar. It's never too early to think about a getaway to North Carolina's OBX. Exactly one month to go, but who's counting?

So, here goes:

An Apple~and an Ulcer~for the Teacher

Behavior Modification, Big-Time?

No Sex for Santa This Season...

Thanks for coming by! And thanks mucho to Sandy & Pam, for helping us to keep this blogging janx real.

Yay that is very cool, congrats!

Responding to your post of my blog, I will say that I was really nervous when looking for a new job because of my tattoos. I have two that are visible - one on the inside of my left wrist and one on the outside of my right ankle. Both are small but I know tattoos can carry a stigma with them.

However, I feel like they're becoming more acceptable in society so hopefully no one with tats will have to worry about that kind of thing much longer.
