What I'm Missing Out On

Recently deleted emails. Unopened mystery surprises, discarded with nary a backward glance.

Obama's disappoints gay activists
Obama proclaims gay pride week

(I got these in the same week! Hmm)

PILLS FROM CANADIAN PHARMACY
pills for you

RE: your request
RE: best vacation tips
RE: (well, all kinds of things ... *delete, delete, delete*)

hello
hey there
hot for you p9ssy webcam

Pelosi is at it again
(delete, but wonder if this is a "sex" email or a "politics" email)

America needs us to unite! Please help!
(all this time, I thought this was just a pro-family organization sending these emails out. I had no idea God had called it to save the entire nation! Or that *my* donation is going to make the difference in whether America survives! Ah, well. If America fails somehow and becomes a Chinese Muslim territory with bunches of gay Muslims promoting Rainbow Jihad on every streetcorner, don't look at "what our leaders did." Just remember that Mrs. C deleted that email without looking inside. Now it's just too late. Whoops. My bad.)

Most scary, I found emails in my inbox from my address that I DID NOT SEND. D says it's easy to manipulate the system to get it to do things like that. He is a mainframe programmer. I'm pretty sure he didn't rig the system to send me the "make her scream with plesure" email, or the "pill makes your p*nis gigantic" email that "I" sent to myself, along with the other assorted emails that are a little more boring in the title.

SO.

If you get one of these wiener emails, or emails about "plesure-able" sex, and it looks like it's from me? Sorry to disappoint you. You might want to delete that. You don't want your computer to get all virus-y.

  1. Oh man, I thought you had the secret answer to the question we have all been asking. I guess I won't open that email. Just kidding. You are too funny. Thanks for the laugh today!

  2. *snigger* The spammers have been hard at work recently but none of mine is as interesting as yours. I just keep taking the trash out...

  3. What a relief! All these emails about me needing a breast enlargement from Mrs. C. I was getting really offended.

  4. Now you've got me thinking about that one moment in SNL's Celebrity Jeopardy where Sean Connnery asks about the topic the pen is mightier.

    Juvenile humor, but I thought it was funny in college.

    [...wait... I still think it's funny...]

  5. Bonnie, some of these emails probably have answers to questions you didn't even know you had, bayyybeee! :0

    Ganeida, I attract a higher class of spammer than you do, *obviously*.

    Virginia, you still need that breast enlargement. Actually, why don't they call 'em BREASTS enlargement? Because...

    /kidding.

    Luke, I ill-advisedly clicked on the link and had to laugh, too. He's "sitting on a gold mine??" Um...?

    'Tis best not to inquire.

  6. lol, they keep getting sneakier and sneakier! I now get several like "Allison, we found you naked!" or "Allison, your credit card application was DENIED!" or "Allison, is this your wife [engaging in sexual activity with a virile man]?"

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!
