Grace should be my middle name.

Did you guys know that it's the knew thing to say, "You owe me 5 dollars!" when someone else blushes? Yeah, that along with the truly horrible "Ain't know hollaback girl..." lyrics are the cool thing if you're 12.

How do I know this? Well, the other day my students were filling in information for a contest they were entering and they were asking if my name was Ms. Grace or Mrs. Grace. Now, preferably, I would be Miss Grace, but it's all very un PC and such, so I said just M-S. So they said, "You aren't married?"

"No, I'm not married."

"Do you have a boyfriend?"


"We're not talking about that..."

"OOOoooooooo! Miss Grace, you owe me 5 dollars! You owe me 5 dollars"

The class chants.

"You're turning red!!!"

"No I'm not."

"What's his name? What's his name?"

"I never said that."

"Ooooo, you owe me 5 dollars!"

In other news, there are officially 4 days of school left. I think I sort of began the celebration on Friday with happy hour, which lasted until 2am when I got home. There was beer. Lots of beer. There was also a 2 divorces, my boyfriend and a lesbian. All in the tiny town that I lived in. Who knew?! There was salsa dancing and someone may have dropped a glass of gin and tonic on the floor. But if course, that couldn't have been me, right?

Other than that, I have also been up to some home decorating, ebay, Thirsty Thursdays at a minor league baseball stadium, teaching and playing tennis, and bowling. You happy now, Earnest? It's not like YOU post every day.

It's definitely not me. In the last 30 days, everything that culd have possibly gone wrong has done so, six ways to Saturday. The most exciting thing in my life so far in 2005 has been the big fat car accident I got into last week when I was rear-ended by not one, but two cars, and as a result I will spend the next four weeks in physical therapy.

I need to get out of this year SO BADLY it's almost hard to believe.

thanks for the love, people. yesterday i got a manicure. tomorrow brings a hair color change after i spend an hour getting my neck screwed with. electrodes on the side of your neck do not constitute a massage, no matter what they tell you.
