Armchair BEA - Introduction

Good morning Armchair BEA participants.  I know that we cannot be in NYC livin' up the real Book Expo, but I love that creative bloggers have organized a way for us to participate vicariously.

I have to be honest, though, ya'll.  I *suck* at intro page.  Seriously.  They are one of my many "i-hates" items.  So, I thought I'd be a sly trickster here and just link posts that I've already written about me.




Finally, I love pig tails and try to wear them at least monthly!

  3. Welcome to BEA! I hated pigtails when I was a kid. I thought they were childish. Now I like wearing pigtail braids. I think they're cute.

  12. Hi! I can't believe that you biked through the Everglades at night, I would of been freaking out. Nice pics of the alligators though :)

    PS. When we were in school they use to take us on field trips to the Everglades, I hated it. I am so not an outdoors girl-lol

  20. Oh my you are brave 'gator bike rider, lol. I had no idea they actually "stood up" to walk away! Crazy.

    Hoping to try kayaking this summer. Husband does it. I prefer a canoe, but yeah, there really is no way I'll get stuck in the kayak, right?

    Enjoy the week!

  21. I too have strong opinions about censorship and fully believe in the value of self censorship as a skill.

    Unless I'm ill or traveling (and don't have access to the internet), I post a review each and every day. Come learn more about me and my blog.

  24. I loved the photos of your classroom (especially the bookcases of course)! I remember your post about the biking trip through the Everglades - it made me laugh and shudder all at the same time. :)
