Did you know we're in the middle of Borders Educators' Week? Any current or retired educator (and this includes Sunday School teachers, homeschoolers, etc) gets 25% off every single thing they buy, now through April 8. I wait for this week every year!

Name someone whom you think has a wonderful voice.
I'm a Josh Groban fan...

I'd say around a 7. I don't wash it as often as I should (especially in the winter - what's the point?), and it tends to collect pieces of my life as the weeks go on...extra gloves, receipts, overdue books, running clothes in case I'm motivated after work...
How do you feel about poetry?
Interestingly enough, though I'm an English teacher and a writer, I'm not a huge poetry fan. I do like to read it occasionally (love ee cummings), but I don't like to teach it, and I'm not very good at writing it. I tend to enjoy it on the surface level, rather than analyzing it for all its hidden meanings.
What was the last person/place/thing you took a picture of?
