I got tagged. I didn't know about this phenomenon, but luckily, it came with instructions attached.

The rules: A. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning. B. Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves. C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

#1. I love to be outside more than almost anything. Particular soft spots: whitewater rafting, hiking in Moab, and exploring in the woods. I believe that people are at least partially solar-powered, and as weird as it may sound, I think this kind of activity can have a huge influence on the way you feel.

#2. I have a deep-seated that's not taking it far enough...I have a NEED to have pets. One of my favorite games to play is "If I had a dog, I would name him/her....."
(Point and case: Russell just found a cat in the parking lot and I fed it 2 and a half hot dogs and a can of Russell's tuna.
Point and case #2: I fed a skinny dog half a roll of crackers a few days ago when my family made a pit stop on the way to Phoenix.)

#3. I love the water. I love to swim, wade, splash, float, row, water the garden, take a bath, etc. I worked as a life guard for 5 years, and I have been swimming since long before I can remember. I love it.

#4. I don't have a whole lot of shame. Or perhaps its just a lack of maturity. I make up nonsense songs and sing them in public places. I dance around parking lots, campus, and my classroom. I make sound effects when surprised or agitated. I have an entire costume box full of things like pirate swords, turbans, and kimonos. You get the idea.

#5. I'm a sucker for a good story. That'll get me every time.

#6. I have a fascination with names. I own 4 name books, and frequent baby name sites. I don't really know why. Maybe it stems from years of stupid name jokes. But I have lists and lists and lists of names stored away on computers, in journals, and on old scratch paper. However, I often call my friends and family by names that are not their own. For example, I have renamed all of my younger siblings. They are now Durd, Foreesto, and Normie. My niece and nephew are Moon Fry and Mowgli, my boyfriend is Wusso, and my dog is Pooper.

And now I tag someone else.... I tag Russ, Kelly, Annie, and Bryant. I do not expect that they will all actually respond. And yes, I realize that wasn't six people.

Dreaming of Pants

I went to sleep the other night with a t-shirt at the end of my bed.

I then had a dream I was trying to squeeze into little kid clothing.

When I woke up, I was wearing the t-shirt as a pair of pants. Seriously. I had one leg through the head hole and one leg through an arm hole.

I have no idea how that happened.

Math Problems

Today, I was talking my class through a tricky math problem dealing with clocks. They are still mastering the whole A.M./P.M. thing. One of my boys raised his hand and said:

"Miss Hulet, A.M. and P.M. might scare me if they were vampires."

I wasn't really sure how to respond to that...

I suppose that A.M./P.M. vampires would scare me too.
