Most excellent news! I'm looking forward to reading it. Just put it on My List!

You nailed this for me with something as simple as a cookie. A free cookie. That was really quite profound for me. I, too, would like to thank you ladies for growing this into something amazing. Of course, I hope I'm not one of the complainers you're talking about - the post I wrote on Monday is a reflection of a small percentage of women who choose to write. I love to write. That's why I'm still doing this. This was my favorite part of what you wrote: Why do most of us attend the Community Keynote, a swagless, boozeless affair that forces us to listen to other people reading their posts? Because it's amazing content that brings us closer together in the listening. It cements our belonging in that community. I believe we crave that more than we crave free stuff. Yep. That brings me closer to more writers and for that I am ever grateful to you women.
CSN just started contacting me via email and now I must go back and seriously peruse their site. Thanks for the heads up on this. The lamps are beautiful.
This bloody, gory mess we live with is almost second nature at this point. (That wasn't meant to be a joke about Mother Nature, but I'll be darned if it doesn't work here!) My aunt was 10 when the onset of menses occurred and my mother warned the three of us girls about it way before then so that we'd know what to expect. When I see you next week I promise not to bring any of this up, ok?

Best of luck with the band. Fun and danceable certainly does have its place. ;-) I can't get into the whole Poken thing but that's because no matter how many times people explain it to me and I click on links that explain it to me I just don't get it. I'm just not drinking the Kool Aid. Plans? Lots of time with my boys. Wii boxing. Painting my toenails for a touch up until the pedicure. Getting a facial tomorrow. Possibly shaving my legs so I don't cut the hell out of them and wear bandages during BlogHer. See you soooooon! xoxo
Girl, you are a GOOD mom. You patiently show him the way with every step. Way to go. BOTH of you.
I love how you kept saying "we learned" because even the experts in education are learning about kids. You are fighting the best possible fight for your son. Keep on. You know that I'm supporting your efforts and cheering you on. More importantly, for me, I'm learning, too. From your efforts, from your son, and from all kids with IEPs.
Love Amos Lee. Mason introduced me to him. Not, like, in person you know. But still. Pretty awesome. Happy Christmas! (Feeling British today)

I don't get into race wars in the kitchen unless I don't get an INVITATION TO EAT. Then, I'm cool. I believe MLK, Jr. said something about the races sitting down at the table together. If you're cooking, I'm all for that! ;-)

Oh, honey! That's awesome! Yes, everyone WILL see it and you can say, "There was a picture of me in the highest grossing People magazine EVER." I was just thinking tonight how I need an indoor fitness routine because this humidity is forcing me to stay inside. Sad, isn't it? But good on YOU.

I love my big iPod and I thought I'd never fill it up. It's not quite full yet but I have the option. It's about having OPTIONS. Women must know this better than men because we have a buttload of shoes. Go for big, Kevin!

You're doing all the right things. I'm inspired listening to all the changes you've already made! Good on you. But we need a respite. For sure.

Dude. I did snippets today! And I had already declared myself having a "Feel Good Wednesday" thingie. That 404 kicks so much ass.

Enjoy the vacation. I'll bet it will do wonders for you.

Why did you do that to me? Why did you get me all happy and excited for Katie and allow me to formulate my "Congratulations!" speech to her because we both share the passion for education and then you go and tempt me with those last few links and NOW? Well, I can't finish a thought and my eyeballs are bleeding.

I was gonna go with "Hawaiian", too. But then my daughter called my son that very word the other day. He seemed confused, but she's all kinds of hip so I'm going to ask if it that's making a comeback. Plus, I'm going to shop for a new bra so it's a WIN-WIN.

I'm from a good Catholic family. We didn't talk about sex. Only abortion and I recall seriously NOT connecting the two. Why are you asking me? I got pregnant at 14. Coincidence?

Katie stays where she falls is pure poetry, man. Market that stuff. You'll make a killing. I'm surprised she didn't growl at you like a monster and rip you to shreds for waking her. How nice of her.

I want to capture lots of things I can't believe I get to see. Also, I want to show them to the world in the hopes of me being able to stop shouting, "No! I really heard that! Yes, I DID see that!"

You are wicked. I'm only forgiving you because of what you said about book dustjackets. That's the ONLY reason, too.

You are so wildly entertaining. And weird. Spanish business? Or was there supposed to be a comma there: Spanish, business. That is pretty cool. I've never heard of it. And to think you got the degree at a university in the middle of a cornfield. Hmmm... muy interesante.

I know what you mean. I was there last week all gaping-mouth and jealousy and wondering WHERE ARE THE CABLE CARS IN ILLINOIS? but it did no good. The plane was on time, even. Sorry, dude. Time to come home. Glad you're having that much fun, though!

Great post! Normally I would just read YOU and skim it (I'm telling on myself terribly just there, aren't I?) but I loved it. Having just been on 4 planes in the last week, I must admit to only really looking for the Mile High Couple. Alas. I did not see them. Unless they were the ones wearing the trenchcoats.

Every once in a while I will check the paper and they will TELL US where the cops will be sitting. Why would they do that? Then, I just slow down during that time. Uhhhh...I mean... I'm still very careful about my driving.

Ditto what Eve said. But it's CST here. You know that. You expressed the "triple jumper" quite well and even sold the idea to me. I had never really thought about that, but it makes travel so much faster and far more fun to do. Spidey's webs are, in fact, biodegradable. When he's slinging all over the city you never see the residue, do you? See. It's all gone. How nice and neat of him. I like a superhero who doesn't leave a mess in his wake. That's very important to me. Good stuff, Kevin! I'm off to read about hot dogs now. Thanks for playing!
