  1. 1. A whole bunch of wires and tubes which don’t exactly increase my confidence in the soundness of this building.
    2. Banners that my alma mater, my homeroom’s namesake, sent us for free. Alumni office rocks. Also lots of STRONG LANGUAGE (little posters students make with their favorite lines from books, movies, songs, whatever) and fiftysome vocabulary words. Also today’s revised revised revised schedule.
    3. Lots of pants that don’t fit but will again someday when I have lots of free time.
    4. Same as halseanderson.
    5. The faint hope that the library will organize itself.

  2. I’m a Blockhead!

    Laurie: your LJ entry above motivated me to Speak (Shut UP, Pamela) for the first time in days on my own LJ. I have had no desire to do much of anything, let alone write. Thanks for letting me tag myself out of oblivion. {}

    Is there a pill to cure my disease? Forget about Writer’s Block. I took over the entire state of New York.

    -Pamela, wishing YOU grins on a grey Friday morn

    There is nothing there.

    What have you been hanging onto for too long?
    Silk blouses suitable for office work but not for working at home. Some of them no longer fit. But I cannot seem to part with them.

  4. 1. A new fan/light kit – that I put in myself!
    2. A small patchwork quilt. I like seeing the broken pieces rearranged in a new pleasing way.
    3. A lot of stuff that doesn’t fit. Or maybe I should say a lot of hopes and dreams.
    4. Nothing. I have enough distractions already.
    5. Extra pounds, brought on by stress, brought on by extra pounds, brought on by stress… The writing is on the wall.

    Wow. You really kicked off some thinking here.

  5. 1. What’s something that’s hanging from your ceiling?
    Cobwebs.

    2. What’s something that’s hanging on your wall?
    One of my most prized possessions, my daughters hand print in the shape of a flower with a lovely poem. I look at it every day as I dress for work and it makes me realize how blessed I am.

    3. What’s something that’s hanging in your closet?
    A bunch of clothes that do not fit me right now, but I am determined that they will!

    4. What’s hanging from your rear-view mirror? (for those without cars, what’s something hanging from the rear-view mirror of a car you’ve recently ridden in?)
    Nothing, I can’t stand to see stuff dangling from the rear-view mirror.

    5. What have you been hanging onto for too long?
    A relationship, sadness, a few regrets, those clothes in the closet, extra weight, the cobwebs on my ceiling and a few eggs in my refrigerator.

  6. 1. A string of Tibetan prayer flags.
    2. A purple tapestry with an elephant on it that my friend got in Zambia (where she used to live).
    3. Dresses which I rarely ever have an excuse to wear (but they were on sale!).
    4. Like I can afford a car… I can’t even afford a bike.
    5. Old clothes that are at least 4 sizes too big. I haven’t even had them taken in, because almost everyone gains weight as they get older, so I figure they will fit me again eventually, even if it takes 10 years.

  7. 1. What’s something that’s hanging from your ceiling?
    a photo-mobile. Basically wire that you can clip photos to! Pretty self explanitory, I suppose

    3. What’s something that’s hanging in your closet?
    Last years prom dress, hoodies, jeans of differnet(?) sizes because I hate buying jeans..they’re all too long.
    4. What’s hanging from your rear-view mirror? Nothing..I hate that people have weird stuffed animals in the backs of their cars, too. Interesting, but I can’t help but think that their houses must be filled with lots of junk, seeing as how even there car is cluttered.
    What have you been hanging onto for too long? The idea that I will never be as good academically than I was last year, a friend who drifted away, and memories of gym class…any gym class.

  8. 1. A sign that says “REFERENCE DESK.”

    What’s something that’s hanging in your closet?
    My coat would be, except I’ve been wearing it! Ack!

    What’s hanging from your rear-view mirror? (for those without cars, what’s something hanging from the rear-view mirror of a car you’ve recently ridden in?)
    I haven’t ridden in a car in a while.

    What have you been hanging onto for too long?
    An old shirt from about 10 years ago that I still wear regularly. It’s probably time to throw that out.

    what have you been hanging onto for too long?
    -A broken dig-dug toy from my old workplace. Actually, I should toss that…

  11. What’s something that’s hanging from your ceiling?
    Nothing; I’m not a ceiling-hanging type of guy.

    What’s something that’s hanging on your wall?
    Well, at home. . .nothing — yet. I have a piece of tree with an eagle painting on it that I bought while on Mackinac Island that I need to put up somewhere. But at school. . .well, also nothing. But early next week, the tessellation posters my geometry class did this week will be up. I’m excited for that 🙂

    What’s something that’s hanging in your closet?
    Finally I have something! Lots of clothes. T-shirts, dress clothes, and a couple sweatshirts.

    What’s hanging from your rear-view mirror?
    Again, nothing. My Ion has enough blind spots in front of me; I don’t need to add any.

    What have you been hanging onto for too long?
    I just made a lot of cuts in my life, materially and emotionally. So I think right now, I’m in a good place. Probably should donate more clothes, though.

    Also, on a wonderful side note for you and everyone to read:
    Today in my geometry class, we had a test. I recently added a bookshelf to my room, so after the test, a good number of my students were willingly going up and checking it out. I was looking at what they were poking around at, and a couple different people were definitely interested in my little Laurie Halse Anderson collection (Catalyst, Speak, and two copies of Twisted)! It was very good to see them searching for those books, and in a math classroom, no less!

    OK, I’ve written about 5 times more than you did. I think that violates some sort of LJ Code of Conduct.

    –Brian

    a light (pretty boring)

    What’s something that’s hanging on your wall?

    What’s hanging from your rear-view mirror? (for those without cars, what’s something hanging from the rear-view mirror of a car you’ve recently ridden in?)
    cherries (for some odd reason, they are fake though)

    What have you been hanging onto for too long?
    everything…

    Look, a facebook fanclub for you: http://hs.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2207999034

    i thought it was cool…

  13. Wow, I wish I could live a place where it snowed, I’d love to take pictures out in the cold of everything. I really like the picture of your dog, I can see it on the cover of your next book (even if put in randomly).

    The weather here is random and unpredictable. Monday is was freezing. Tuesday it was chilly with a breeze. Yesterday it was hot. Today it was hot. Tomorrow I’m hoping is chilly.

    I don’t get it. December should not be hot weather…it should be cold. Why why why is it still hot. I want to wear hoodies and sweatshirts and drink hot chocolate…but it’s still too hot for all of that.
