I am a Sell Out

I think I just sold out.

I don't feel guilty for it either.

If you notice a new link on my sidebar, I have made a recommendation to my readers. If you link to it directly from my blog and decide to purchase it, I get an gift certificate. Now, I think this is good for Amazon. Good for me.

I heard about this arrangement on Rosie O'Donnell's blog. All of her profits go to charity. My profits will feed my music/movie/book habit. It is a pretty simple process for those in the blog business. All you do is go to the Amazon site, sign up, and they make the links for you. All you have to do is post them in your blog's template. Email me if you have any questions. I am going to change my recommendation once or twice a week. I might even have two, but we'll start with one.

Don't feel guilty. It is a great idea--
1. I like books you like; so I appreciate recommendations
2. If I am going to buy a book, I would like a friend to get a reward.

Great idea.

You have probably already read this one, but since you are a teacher I thought I would pass it on.....1995 fan.

A 30-ish man standing in line at a check out counter of a grocery store was very surprised when a very attractive woman in front of him turned said, "Hello!" Her face was beaming.

He gave her that "who are you?!" look, and couldn't remember ever having seen her before.

Then, noticing his look, she figured she had made a mistake and apologized.
"Look," she said "I'm really sorry but when I first saw you, I thought you were the father of one of my children," and walked out of the store.

The guy was dumbfounded and thought to himself, "What the hell is the world coming to? Here is an attractive woman who can't keep track of who fathers her children! "

Then he got a little panicky. "I don't remember her," he thought, but, MAYBE.... during one of the wild parties he had been to when he was in college.... perhaps he did father her child!

He ran from the store and caught her in the parking lot and asked,
"Are you the girl I met at a party in college and then we got really drunk and had wild crazy sex on the pool table in front of everyone?"

"No!", she said with a horrified look on her face. "I'm your son's second grade teacher!"

Hullo! Don't feel like you sold out. This is a great idea. I think I will do it, though not today.

We will definitely get together soon and play literati. It's been crazy busy around here.

Ok take care.
