- there has never been a plus* sized winner before.
- she recognizes the same thing i do....most plus* size girls' flames flicker out as the cycle wears on
*plus sized in ANTMland is normal size for the rest of us. thus, i refuse to think of these girls as fat.

gosh tyra is such a man. i can't stand her.
don't worry tyra, that's the same way we feel about you!
my early pick for favorite is lauren. but i will definitely have to wait until the casting special to project this season's winner.
careful, ladies, i am an accomplished professor of all things antm. i will not be out-fierced.
i am so excited to hear that the writer's strike is over, but only because that means my most beloved show is coming back on. here's a hilarious tribute to my favorite cornell grad.
i had a great time in columbus this past weekend--except that it was freezing. enjoyed food and spirits at these fine establishments:
- frog bear & wild boar
- starbucks (in the hotel lobby)
- darby's sports bar (yes, it's IN the hotel). things got a little crazy here when allie and i had several brews and put elton john and justin timberlake on the jukebox.
for all you teacherly folk, the reading recovery conference was great...even if you're not at a reading recovery school. i learned so much about guided reading, writer's workshop, and other such wonderful activities. i got to see regie routman, jeffery williams, and katherine paterson speak. all of these are ASTOUNDING educators and actually have applicable ideas for today's classroom. i would recommend this conference to any teacher i know.
this weekend, i will be in philly with my love. i can't divulge where we are staying b/c it is a surprise, but pics and stories are to follow, i'm sure.
