Think About It Thursday and A game of Tag

Rachel from 1001 Books hosts this weekly meme in which she posts a reading related question that makes us think. This weeks question is:

I want to know if you have kids (or nieces, nephews, grandchildren, whatever) do you read to them and what are your favorites?

Nope, I don't have any kids of my own and our nieces and nephew live on the east coast so there isn't any reading going on. I should read more to my students, but there just isn't enough time in the school day.

A Game of Tag

Erin from I teaching for Living....What's your super power? tagged me this week for a little game of 8 questions.

1. What is your favorite TV show and why?
Even though the last season was last year, my favorite TV show is still LOST. Carl said he was going to get me the complete box set for Christmas, so don't expect much blogging from me once I get it.

2. What book do you recommend I read?
My favorite book, A Rose for the Crown by Anne Easter Smith. It's a about the love story of Richard III.

3. If you had to give up one piece of technology, what would it be?
I could give up my cell phone. I really don't think I'd miss it except that most public pay phones have been removed. The only reason I have one now is because we don't have a home phone.

4. What is your favorite part of fall?
See my 5 Fall Favorites here.

5. Pick one word to describe yourself.

6. Besides Blogger, what website do you spend the most time browsing?
I check my Google Reader very often...other than that, not much of any site.

7. What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
Chocolate. Yesterday I discovered that I had accidentally bought a Hersey's bar with almonds to make s'mores with the kids at school...we have a strict 'no nut' policy at school so I hid the evidence in my mouth!

8. What is your dream job?
I have it! I love teaching my kids. If I had to do anything else, I would want to work with my husband as as Special FX Make Up Artist.

I know I am suppose to tag 8 other people with 8 of my own questions, but I am not going to. Why? Because I want my followers to focus on writing about their Fall Favorites and linking it up to the 5 Fall favorites Link Party. You have until Saturday to get your post linked so I can draw a winner on Sunday! Consider yourself tagged!


  1. You did a great job with the Tag game. I think I would have hidden the evidence don't really have any favorite TV shows but I have gone back to watching a lot of Everybody loves Raymond shows. I guess I'm regressing. Have a great day.

  2. Brilliant! No one would think to look in your mouth for contraband. :o) La

  3. and your mum...hiding the evidence :0 I had to talk about my favorite stories that I use to read with the boys for Think About IT Thursday. Tomorrow I'm off to write my Fall Favorites post since you've converted me ;)

  4. Hey Cortney, I was wondering how it's going with you quitting smoking? I hope you were able to resist.
    My son hid his tattoo from us for a long time, and I accidently saw it one day. He knew how we felt about tattoos. LOL He wanted me to tell his dad. I told him no, that was his job. Dang, my son was a grown man in his 20's then.

  5. Hi Cortney! LOST was my favorite, too! Although frustrasting to watch (and get no answers), it was thought provoking..not to mention the eye candy called, Sawyer (YUM)!
    Have a great Sunday!

  6. LOST was my favorite, TOO! Although frustrating to watch (and get no anwers), it was also thought provoking...not to mention the eye candy named, Sawyer (YUM)!
    Happy Sunday!
