Re: I got most of them
okay, hold up missy.
i went back and LOOKED at my LJ to see what you were looking at so I could better understand your point of view but this post has nine million "Christmas"s in it?!?!?! My typed out entry about my husband's office party used the word "Christmas". The previous entry about Hallmark used the word "Christmas" both times. So the only times that i can see where i've used "xmas" was in someone else's code on the stocking and in my little tags, which are only tools for me to quickly retreive postings on a specific topic not a real comment or post or anything. i have way more Christ in Christmas than Xmas phrases!!! but i went ahead and changed it from xmas to christmas. it won't do capital letters, so that was the best i could do.

anyway, mom called me today and said she found a whole bunch of my old teaching stuff from when i was in school. i don't know what's in it, but she's holding it out for me to go through. She says it's supplies i bought (??). If it's anything useful would you like it? i truly have no idea what to expect - she said it wasn't books and she described some of it as "cards and supplies" so i'm hoping that it's something good :)

I won't post my answers for fear of ruining it for other players. Can I get the answers? (I got most of them.)

thanks for saying my clues were good! i'm terrible at clues! i tried to figure out how to get the words "letters" and "send" into that one - i figured you knw what IMHO stood for so maybe you'd think it was odd i explained it. i reread it and thought it was the dumbest thing ever - LOL

well done you for getting so many of them!! you did better than me :)
