    Come on down, the weather is fine. And there are lots of sketchy people in FL already, so you'll all fit right in!

    That is sweet Tasha!

    Y'all are totally welcome here in Alaska. You can't see Russia from my place, but you can see Canada!

    I am cracking up! My first thought upon reading the o.p. was "We would kill each other!" :lol::lol:(re: political discussions threads!)

    We should wait until after the election for sure, and no political discussions allowed at the retreat!

    Maybe we could go to a lodge in the Alaskan wilderness . . .hehehe

    You would all be shocked to meet me in person. I am very reserved and do not get into political discussions at all!

    I second the motion! :lol: Really, it would be very neat. During the summer would, of course, be the best. I still vote for Hawaii... :whistle:

    I know! There are very few of us here in the area. The flip side is that I don't have to worry too much about collegues seeing me on line! I'd love to meet you guys. Hawaii sounds like a dream, but Key West might be more affordable. Of course coming to Omaha might be a good central location for all interested parties!;)

    Oooooh-are you a famous person, blessedhands?

    Hahaha-are you BETH NEWINGHAM?

    She's the only famous teacher I can think of at the moment.... and she lives in Troy, MI. Unless you are trying to disguise yourself.

    Hmmm... maybe we COULD coordinate a CA meeting. That would be so great! I've wanted to meet up with TeacherShelly (she's only about an hour from me), and Katenar is down south. I have several teachers on my myspace that are close, too.

    What are you guys doing on Veteran's Day? No school here-would you want to meet up somewhere? I certainly don't mind driving!

    Really!!! Care to join me in a new thread??? I think it's a really great show..when I don't fall asleep! :lol:

    Okay, not to hijack...but it is just like us here at AtoZ...a nice mix of folks, who all want to do the same thing, get out there and be ourselves..getting together to share likes/dislikes. There is something for everyone!

    Yes, Beth Newingham is in Michigan. Heather Renz is in Oregon; she's well-known, also. Then in NY... it could be Hilary Clinton. :haha: That's all I can think of, anyway.

    blessed's profile says she's a student teacher, so that rules out Louanne Johnson that and the fact that she taught in CA. I suppose she could have moved, but she'd never be a ST.

    Cause you're famous:D:D:D

    You're also a gorgeous 25 or possibly 26 year old woman of Jamaican ancestry, who finished high school at 16 with high marks and has good shoes. You've changed hairstyles at least once and dyed your hair red, and work in health care on the weekends. While you visit Chinatown often, you don't know too much about schools on the lower east side of Manhattan, and you want people to call you Nikki.

    Hmmm. . . okay, so I guess I rule out Usain Bolt and Patrick Ewing, who wear nothing but sneakers. I can't see Shaggy working in health care. And I don't think Bob Marley would appreciate being called Nikki.

    However, I have figured out who blessedhands is, and she's not Dear Abby, or Hilary Clinton. She's Carla Campbell.

    Now, admittedly I don't know exactly why a supermodel would be working as a student teacher and in health care. But NYC IS a hotbed of modeling. And the website also references that her career went somewhat dormant in 2004 (suspiciously, just about the time it would need to if she were going to start a teaching career).

    There's even some telling quotes on the website:

    Now, tell me she's not really talking about teaching. Though it does cause me to wonder if she's got a set of champagne bottles littering her floor.

    (don't accuse me of stalking until I show up at your school. I got everything from here)
