1. Who was your last celebrity sighting? Who was the biggest celebrity sighting?

2. What's for dinner?

3. How hot is it by you?

I know.  Several of us here have famous family, but we don't quite live thru them.  Ya know, Spring?

And how come financial analysts are so good but they're not as rich as their celebrity clients?  Hmm.  A stumper!

Are you also going to introduce yourself? I'm a WAHM. I have children in middle school and elementary school. I've already referenced my DH. We have a few pets. I'm middle aged. My hobbies include reading and working out--usually at the same time.

Welcome. Who is this sister of yours that is a celebrity? Laughing

I'm a bit worried about your mental health, Thardy. I have no idea why you would hurl such accusations against a new person to the board. Particularly one who doesn't drink...

You are new? lol. And who is this "celebrity" sister of yours?

I don't friend my kids' teachers. I am friends w/the ones I knew before my kids started at the school, but I don't think it is appropriate to "friend" teachers b/c I'm not their friend, kwim?

Okay, honey.  Then why don't you introduce yourself?  Tell us all about who you are, your interests, age, kids, family pets.  Your employment.  TIA.

yup-- the girl's teachers are the same way which is very responsible.   the band and chorus teacher (a married couple) at her junior high are friends with one of my best friends, a music director and actor who also teaches at another junior high.  The band director just friended me on FB and the girl is all sorts of jealous ...b/c apparently he's REALLY COOL

The Girl is anxious to graduate - so that she can friend her band director on FB.  Apparently he posts some neat stuff, but he won't friend anyone until they graduate.  Very responsible of him, of course.  And he won't friend their parents either, until their kids are out of band/school.  (Unless he has a non-teacher-parent relationship with them independently.)
