Dot it.

That's what my mother never does to her i's, making her handwriting even harder to understand.

Speaking of handwriting, does anyone actually write in cursive after the fourth grade? They should teach you to sign your name and get on with it. I am almost 30 and I honestly have no idea how to write a capital Q, X, or Z in cursive.

People who don't like the answer I give them frequently get abusive and curse at me.

I would have expected her name to be mary jane, or is that your live in helper's name?

I wish I had a live in helper. Although, right now I would settle for a nurse... my b.f. is home sick, and boy is he whiny! What is it about sick men that makes them whine so much?

Like in Billy Madison when his 4th grade teacher made fun of him for being unable to spell buzz or Tony Rizzuto in cursive. hee!

I stopped writing in cursive long before I graduated from high school. Whenever I send a friend a handwritten note, I have to practice my cursive several times before I can write the letter. ::oops:

I don't really have printing or cursive anymore... my natural writing is a combination of the two. I have to really concentrate when I'm required to do one or the other.

My dad is a printer by trade. we used to have printing presses in our basement and when i was a kid, my dad would make a float to look like a printing press for the field days parade and i got to sit in it and throw candy.

Given our winter thus far, we now expect that our power will go out with each significant storm.

Remember the Emergency episode where a kid became bloated after eating raw bread dough and the leavening distended his stomach? I don't think that could really happen.

I had a crush on Gage (I think he was the dark-haired paramedic) when I was a kid. They filmed that show a few times down the street from my house...

I once saw Green Day play in some girls apartment above an abortion clinic in Milwaukee. They were like 16 or 17 years old and were like 4 years from making it big.

I've always enjoyed the hyperbole and sarcasm of the Peter Gabriel song "Big Time."

Peter Gabriel was huge when I was in sixth grade. His song "In Your Eyes" was featured in one of my favorite films of the 80's, "Say Anything."

Why don't they make any songs about blue eye girls :(
What about:

Are your eyes still blue

Behind blue eyes

Between blue eyes and jeans
Blue eye blue

Blue eyes
Blue eyes cry'n in the rain

I wish I had "20 eyes in my head" like in that Misfits song.

I own every Misfits album and tshirt that I can get my hands on....personal faves are "She" and "London Dungeon."

And of course....
