We had the identical first blood drive experience. One of my friends had to skip a class and monitor me because the nurse didn't trust me to stay by myself. I haven't given blood since.

I can't believe I forgot The Replacements! I love Keanue (?) Reeves. Also, Rookie of the Year was one of my favorites when I was little. The pitching coach is hysterical.

To the doctor: I don't think I got your friend request. I do have a profile picture. There's one other person in it. Email me if you still can't find it. Also, check tomorrow about the quote.

Glad someone got it. I thought it was easy too.

And your topic of choice is?

I think I may have over simplified this a bit. The Doctor is right, there is a time and a place for everything. And in a a formal group, political correctness is a good thing.

Newgrant18, I've been called more than one imprintable word to my face and I'm sure countless others behind my back. Yes, it stings. But I'm not calling for hate speech, at all.

When I was writing about this I was thinking about Bill Cosby who's been called "Uncle Tom" for speaking out against the high rate of unwed mothers in the African-American community. Because what he said isn't PC people feel it's ok to disregard it. When in actuality, he's attempting to spark an important conversation.

I think I'll write another post clarifying this. I hope you keep reading even if I am a "Hoity-Toity Girl That Goes To Exclusive Eastern Colleges Expecting To Become Rich High-Society Wife."

I think looking it up is called "using your resources." Congrats. What are you thinking?

I have to day this is the first time I've been accused of "cuddling the radical kooks on the right." Longtime readers of this blog know that I never call for censorship. But I'm also sensitive to the issue of violence against women. This game trivializes a very serious problem and I'm going to say that I don't like it. I won't buy and I'l going to discourage other people to do the same. Thanks for reading.

I think (hope) that a BA has worth beyond what it's in. I think a liberal arts education teaches you how to analyze, how to write, how to think things through. Those are valuable skills in any market place. I hope.

You've got it. I have to say, I've struggled with both these topics before, so you're not going to make it easy. But in the end, they'll be good posts. I hope. Check back later in the week.

Thanks for reading!

Wow! I turn around, leave this blog, come back and have 6 comments! How exciting!

Anyway, I played catchphrase last night. Another great game. I highly recommend it.

I'll just remind everyone: No one likes a cheater. Although my brother excels at changing the rules mid-game. It drives me crazy.

And I love Nancy Drew!

Happy New Year!
