I was wondering what kind of icing you used! The cake sounds delicious enough and then to add cream cheese icing... well, that really is the icing on the cake!

I  heard a lot about Neil Gaiman in the Reading Rainbow swap I was in. I haven't picked anything up yet... I do have a copy of You Suck by Christopher Moore...and I need to return it to its rightful owner (I've had it for a year Tongue ).

I loaned a bunch of books (one irreplaceable) to a "boy" and he dumped me and never returned my calls when I asked for them back. Lesson learned...

And, I was at a Red Sox game about 2 weeks ago, and I saw Stephen King (a rabid Sox fan) on his way to the mens room. He was about 5 feet away, and he is really tall!!

Those flowers are gorgeous! I'd have to buy a new coat to wear them on...or make a new bag to put them on. I love them!

Nice looking square, Puppy_girl!

I worked on mine for a bit today, but this is the square that is giving me the most trouble, for some reason. I'm on round 8, and I had to undo it once already. Then, I got stuck in the same spot (the corners) and I had to stop. I'll get it eventually...I hope...

I bit the bullet and bought some online from AC Moore and it was all on sale! I bought 2 packs of the inkjet kind plus a bunch of the other kind (I've been looking all over for black, and they had it!). They also had a deal on shipping (flat rate $6), so I bought some other stuff, too.

I can't wait for it to get here!

But, I'm definitely searching for it in the store so I can use a coupon the next time Wink

Sign-up date range:  5/24/08 - 6/22/08

Photos of all 'prizes' are DUE NO LATER than 6/23 so everyone has an opportunity to see what will be offered before the drawing and sendouts.

Drawing will be done on 6/25, PMs will be sent to the 'prize' creators letting them know who 'won' their item and where it should be sent to.

So the drawing is done 2 days after sign ups close? We are already dying from anticipation for the sign up date to get here.

Sorry!  I am not off from work until Tuesday and Wednesday, so I cannot do the drawing until then as I have NO time to get it all put together into the 2 hats.  I will have the information sent out to everyone by Wednesday evening, at a decent time, not midnight or anything Smiley  Probably by about 7-8pm.  Can't wait!

Yay! The waiting is half of the fun! Once the package gets here, it'll be over...until the next round Wink

Can't wait to see them, angeltreats!

If I use a coupon (40% off), it'll probably be way cheaper than online, especially when shipping gets added in...

There is a Michael's about 5 minutes from work, so I won't even be paying for extra gas! Now, I'll have to wait until I get a coupon in the paper. I hope my newspaper subscription starts soon Wink

you should be glad you could get your students to enjoy books
my brother just finished 7th grade and you couldnt get him to pick up a book if you paid him
thats what the generations of kids are coming to Tongue

"Silent" reading usually wasn't! Last year, I gave my kids a choice, read or learn to crochet blankets for the Snuggles project. I had a bunch of kids pick up hooks!

CraftADDchick, I'm so jealous of you.  I went to college in the Amherst area, and I miss it so much.  There are, indeed, some great used book stores in the area.  The Raven is the first one that comes to mind.  I think there was a place called the Book Barn, too, but I could never find it. 
Don't miss Bart's ice cream while you're there.  It's yummy.

Thanks for the used bookstore tips! I'm sure that I'll be strolling to the center while I'm there. They provided free campus housing for the week (even though it's only a little over an hour to drive, free is cheaper than $4+ for gas!). We'll have partners by then so I can pick out some perfect books!

I was reading something the other day where someone was criticizing someone elses grammar and the criticizer actually spelled grammar wrong..

I saw this somewhere, too! I laughed my head off!!

And, I really think the reading/spelling/grammar thing is connected. The more you read, the more you are exposed to words (usually correctly spelled) and varied sentence structure. Reading is the best way to build vocabulary, too!


And, I love Bill Bryson! I've read a few of his books, and have several more that I haven't had a chance to read, yet.
