I cannot claim to have them.
Therefore, could a kindly mod please fix this gaffe for me, and change 'There and Back Again' in my post (last paragraph) to 'An Unexpected Journey'.

Grateful thanks in advance. Crazy

Been flying upside down this week, girl?Laugh

Though everything else made perfect sense.

Just checking to see if anyone was paying attention [In reply to] Can't Post

Gold star to you. Cool
As I was mowing the lawn this afternoon a little corner of my brain alerted me to the error. Small parts of my brain are still functioning reasonably well, others clearly are not.
Which makes me think I was extremely lucky to get promoted this week! Laugh

I was kind of hoping [In reply to] Can't Post

you might have a time machine and let me come for a ride in it...then we could make bets on the Hobbit board about the plotlines of the next two movies and win all of them and look brilliant. Oh well....

Promotion! Congrats Starling!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

And I totally missed your error in that post because the rest of it was so perfectly expressed. Though it lacked any decent _________ profanity.

Is there a Tolkien topic that you have wanted to look into more deeply, and write about your thoughts on it? If so, we'd like to hear from you for the next TORn Amateur Symposium- coming in November. Happy writing!

Wheee! Three Cheers! [In reply to] Can't Post

Are you managing other teachers now? Are you at the same school?

But it may simply be November Seasonal Forgetfulness. I just remembered today that I forgot to teach a student a piece he was to play in church last Sunday, and which his parents expressly asked me to go over with him. He said it went well anyway, thankfully.Blush

NSF [In reply to] Can't Post

I think I have a case of that.
My promotion means that I will be more in a manager position, apart from one day a week classroom teaching/mentoring a new teacher. I have been trying to teach a very challenging class three days a week, and run a busy special needs unit, manage and support 25 staff, and support the families, all in the other two days. I mostly feel like one of those people in traditional tales where they are told to spin a room full of straw into gold by dawn, except I've been trying to do that every day. Luckily I have a very supportive Board and Principal, and they are doing their best to make things better for me, and hopefully for everyone else as well.

So now I will have much more time to file my nails. Sly

My manservant has vanished too [In reply to] Can't Post

I sense something suspicious could be going on. Unless they are both together and working hard to secure our bank accounts so that they can deposit further millions into them. They have been so trustworthy in the past...

In the "passed" [In reply to] Can't Post

I believe. I noticed unusual activity on my online handheld manservant fraud detection touchscreen. There were 2 thumbprints entered in the secret database. I believe the second belongs to your now-previous employee.

However, I set up a decoy account named "starling" with a fake contact for them to meet with in the southern part of North Dakota (which all PDQ Bach lovers will recognize as the town of Hoople). I set them up in a hotel room with Ground Hog Day playing in a continuous loop on the in-room television. They will not be able to leave (ever).

Shall I place a couple of ads for new manservants in the next edition of the Tolkienia Times?

To be followed by DSF and so on!Cool

I can't believe you've had to carry all that for so long--and through 2 earthquakes and aftershocks no less!
Nice bosses are a tremendous help, though.

Glad things will be better now!Smile
