Monday Meet Up!

So this is a record.  It's still June and I'm posting AGAIN!  This MUST be summer vacation.  Let me start by pointing out that blonde over there on the right.  She's the reason I'm sporting a sunburn.  I decided to play around with my Art Studio app this morning and wasn't paying attention to how long I was sitting in the sun.  Ouch! I feel obligated to disclose some information here:  I look nothing like her.  The blonde hair is now graying (long, but graying), there are a few extra pounds hanging around, and my feet aren't that small.  But I created her in the image of what I would want to look like if I was a piece of clipart.

This is the real me.....

I thought I'd join in with The Teaching Tribune's Monday Meet Up.  I know, this is Week 4 for everyone else, but it's Week 1 for me and I'm pretty excited about it!


Here are a few completely random tidbits about me.  



I'm curious, what's the most interesting food item you've ever eaten?  

Be sure to head over to The Teaching Tribune to read some entertaining tidbits about your fellow bloggers.

  1. The most interesting things I've ever eaten were forced on my as a child! I am not an adventurous eater. My parents never hear the end of making me eat things like liver and onions or turnip casserole. Of course they never eat those things now!

    1. Oh I know exactly what you mean! My dad was a liver and onion fan. That's right up there with the jellyfish. I remember cutting the liver up into little bites and smothering it with ketchup. I shudder at the thought of it.

  2. Oh my goodness, nothing to do with your post but your dog is ADORABLE!!! I wish my dogs could be our classroom pet, they'd be so tired everyday and we could all get a good night sleep!

    1. Thanks! He's the baby of the bunch: a 45 pound lap dog. In a perfect world, Gus would come to work with me every day. Alas, the only classroom pet we have is Lars, our betta fish. He's not near as cuddly.

  5. Hey Lori - the only fish I care for is fried perch! So jellyfish is a big NO to me.

    Hope all's well ... sounds like you're doing swimmingly ... and that you're savoring summer. I just spent four days in San Diego and will be coming back to CA next week for a workshop in Santa Barbara. Such a pretty part of the country!

  6. Jelly fish! Wowsa! You are adventurous! A few months back I ate blood sausage. I know that isn't too interesting, but for me it was pretty darn adventurous!
