Tagged...Writer's Block??

Did the tagging ever end?  Is this a new round?  I'm so tired from all of the running I can't remember.  I was tagged by Krista over at Stellar Students:





The rules are the same that applied last time.  Link back to the person who tagged you. Answer questions.  Tag more with new questions.  I may have to cheat.  Forgive me.
 1.  What is your favorite way to relax after a rough day in the classroom? a bubble bath, listening to Josh Groban with a nice drink of some kind

2. What is your favorite subject to teach and why? This has changed over the years.  Right now, I think I'd say math thanks to math rotations.  I'm loving it :) {Not McDonald's either}

3. How/Why did you get into blogging? I was constantly stalking with no real purpose.  I also wanted to have "something" that I did that meant something to me.  Not that being a wife, mother and teacher weren't enough, I just wanted something "just for me".  That's blogging.

4. If you could visit anywhere, where would you go and why? Australia or New Zealand because they are both beautiful places.

5. What is the one thing you could not do without in your classroom? My SmartBoard!  Who else feels this way?

 6.  Who or What inspired you to become a teacher? I've always wanted to be a teacher.  I think that I had great roll models along the way.

7. What is one of your funniest teacher moments? I had a kid years ago in my room who struggled.  He was so lovable.  Everyone enjoyed him.  We were studying inventors and the students had to create a new invention, bring it in and explain how it worked.  His was a battery connected to a small light-bulb.  Not really a new invention, but the best he could do, I'm sure.  At the end of his presentation, a student asked him, what happens if the wire becomes disconnected.  He said, without skipping a beat, "Then, I guess you're screwed."
Yep, I guess so.

8. What book are you reading right now or who is your favorite author? Right now I'm struggling to finish Cutting for Stone.  It's a long one.

9.  Why did you decide to become a teacher? I really don't remember wanting to ever be anything else.

10.  What are 3 of your favorite places to shop?Ann Taylor Loft, Holister and Trader Joe's {there's not one in my town...so I try to go to one whenever I'm traveling...how lame am I?}.

OK- I was totally lying about Holister.

Did you even believe me?

OK-here are my 10 questions:

1. If you could have one wish, what would it be?
2. What is your favorite breakfast food?
3. What is your favorite vacation destination?
4. Who is your best friend and why?
5. Do you have pets?
6. Are you organized or disorganized?
7. What is the funniest thing that you remember from childhood?
8. Do you like scary movies?
9. What job would you like to have for ONLY one day?
10. Salty or sweet?

OK- I'm tagging everyone.  See, I told you I was cheating.  I just don't have it in me to try to find people who haven't been tagged.

So-if you are having a mental block and want something to write about...here's your chance :)

Oh- and I'm heading home and back to reality....boo, hoo, hoo :(
