I blame you! update AND 5 things Meme

It must be your lucky day. Two blogs for the price of one!

Like my dear friend
Em, I am in love with my stat counter. Yesterday I had 82 page loads. 82, people of blogdom! Of course 30 of them were probably from me, obsessively seeing if anybody had left a comment on my blog. But hey, that means I had 52 other page loads. People like me! They really do. Maybe I'll even get nominated for one of these. Ok, maybe they ended up here by mistake. Or maybe the aliens kidnapped them from their regularly planned blogs and dropped them here. Either way, people visited! That is the highest page load I've ever seen on my stat counter. Do you know what that means? It's all your fault again! Now I really can't pull myself away because people are actually reading and leaving comments. I came to work today with the best intentions. I had to grade 7 papers before I could check anything on the computer. I've been at work for over 3 hours now. How many do I have done? ZERO!!!!!! With shame, I told my students I PROMISE all papers will be done by Friday. So after your bonus post of the day, I'm not checking in again until I get at least 15 papers done. Promise. I mean it. No, really.

Ok, now for the bonus blog.
