You know I'm all about confessions around here, an open book, if you will.  This is a big one.  When I first started blogging I was envious of two things:

1.  That Top Ten Blogger Award so many of you donned on your sidebars
2.  My friends whose blogs were "Fascinating" {Mine? Notsomuch.}

Then Kristen wrote this about her nomination and I remember giggling, guffawing, and realizing it really wasn't anything to get my knickers in a knot over.  I really hadn't written any posts that garnered amazing amounts of comments...afterall I had just started my blogging journey back then; so fascination remained nothing more than a tune in my mind...

Human League - Keep Feeling Fascination by hushhush112

{Growing up I didn't have MTV so I never knew what these people, who sang my favorites, looked like.  I'm wishing I could somehow have kept it that way}

As I was saying, that silly 'ol award and me not getting nominated for it - I was okay with that.  Really okay with it. Fine, fine. I mean really - people's GIVEAWAYS were sometimes the reason for receiving such an "honor"....pshhhhh...Even if I HAD been nominated I wouldn't have bothered with it.  Pish. Posh.

Then I opened my email...just you're not going to believe it {Or maybe you saw it coming}...

Accelerated Degree Programs

I know, I know - some of you out there might be a tad bit envious.  What can I say?  I'm fascinating. This here blog fascinates somebody, somewhere...I just gotta figure out who and where they are and I'll say a big 'ol thanks for thinking that of me and this here post.  {Why do I sense a bit of computer generated something or other goin' on here...something's fishy in Denmark}.

Any way you slice it - somebody out there in interspace wants to acknowledge teachers and their educational blogs.  THAT I can appreciate and for that I'm grateful!!!!!

Sooooo.....if, say, on May 14th you're sitting there vegetating on the couch, wondering where you should go next with your evening, you may want to click on this here little badge of honor and vote!....

Accelerated Degree Programs

My friend, Matthew Pelletier, Director of Public Relations over at Accelerated Degree Programs tells me that voting begins May 14th and ends May 21st. I've got some heavy competition....I won't mention any names but things might get a little Nutty once voting begins.  {Don't worry. I'll send you a friendly reminder because even fascinating bloggers need to eat and I might just win a 100 dollar restaurant gift card...can you say PFChangs!?!}


If you haven't entered to win the Easi-Speak USB Recorder from Learning Resources, be sure to check it out {here}.

That's enough fascination for one evening.



  1. Congratulations! I love your blog and will definitely stop by and vote for you!

  3. Oh my goodness...I almost said the same thing on my blog about this award (referring to Kristen's post about it...but I couldn't find it).

    It is still fascinating. I do find you fascinating with every post :)

    If I win, I'll take you to dinner.

    How's that?


    Fun in Room 4B

  4. OK- let's make a deal- whoever wins has to take the other one to dinner- via face time....could you imagine that servers face when a phone is held up to them to order???? hee hee
    You are extremely fascinating, woman!
    And so honest- you say the things that are on our minds:)

    Going Nutty!

  5. Congrats! I just love your blog!
