OMG! Living where you live and you've never had Key Lime Pie?? That's going to be the first thing I do for you when we meet - make you a pie! After hugging you, of course...

LOL Gneiss! Meringue only looks like cow slobber when it's not done right. :P How about whipped cream, is that better?

Kids are back in school today... hallelujah!

I saw my ex-boyfriend when I dropped my Son off at school this morning. It literally made me sick to my stomach. I HATE seeing him, even after all these years, it makes me uneasy.

Glad to hear the Kiddos are back in school! I'm watching Handy Manny with my Daughter and trying to talk her into watching Twilight with me!

How you doing today my Sista?

We watch Handy Manny, too.

I think I'm going back to sleep for a little while.

My son told me LAST NIGHT right before he went to bed that he has to have To Kill a Mockingbird for class on Tuesday. He's been out of school for 10 days! 10 days we've had to go shopping, and he waits until 10 p.m. last night to tell me?!? Thanks. Stupid teenagers. LOL

Oh I feel you on that last minute thing! I hate when my Son does that, but in all honesty I"m the biggest procrastinator so he must get it from me!

Go get some rest Girl =)

Whipped cream sounds yummy.

I read To Kill A Mockingbird in 10th grade. One of my friends insisted on calling it How to Kill a Mockingbird. What is this, an instruction manual? So much decent literature was ruined for me by being forced to read it for high school English class... *sigh*

I had to read To Kill a Mockingbird in 10th grade too. It was ok. I enjoyed a separate peace much more.

If I was designing a curriculum, I'd make a list of books and let the class vote on which they'd like to read and discuss. And they wouldnt all be all American and British classics from 100 years ago either. Its the 21st century people. lol

In 12th grade my English teacher gave us a list of about 50 books and told us to pick one and read it. Fahrenheit 451, Clockwork Orange, Lord of the Flies, 1984, Oliver Twist, blah blah blah. I chose my book because the day before the report was due I realized I hadn't read a book yet. So I went to the school library and One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich was the shortest one I could find, so I read it in one night and got an A on the report. Solzhenitsyn wasn't bad but there are far better books out there, and that list was what my teacher came up with? Sad.

Oh my gosh - what fun talk. Pie and books - and banana bread..

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my all time favorites - read it as a teen, in my 20's and again in my 40's and most recently in my 50's (that is really old - me not the book).. and reread Fahrenheit 451 this year (a timeless book).. OK - so that kid of yours is reading Mockingbird TSH - wonder how he will like it.. pretty tough topic..

Love lemon meringue pie. Tried a lime version this year and was wonderful.. Do you ever put chocolate chips in your banana bread? really good..

:ghug

I haven't read TKAM since I had to read it in school. I have no idea what my son will think of it. He loves books and loves to read, but generally hates anything he "has" to read. LOL

KB - I DO sometimes put chocolate chips in my banana bread! It is so yummy. I generally DON'T put nuts in it, though. I've actually gotten compliments because of that. I've had people say they love banana bread but don't like nuts and it's really hard for them to find banana bread without nuts. I like nuts, but I tend to not like nuts IN things (like breads and brownies) so I leave them out. Must be ok because the bread always disappears REALLY quickly!
