TV shows: Buffy, Simpsons, Letterman, Boston Public (it's sensationalized, yes, but I'm a teacher; it's my trade and I always need helpful tips, like what to do if my students are gang members and shoot at me or if one of the classrooms on campus is really a sex hotel in disguise)
Reality TV: Survivor 6, American Idol 2, Joe Millionairhead
Pets: a grey tabby furball/rugrat
Thanks for providing good & fun reading material! I'll try to visit more often and post.
Hi to everyone. I hadn't noticed this thread before when lurking as a visitor. Registered this week.
Occupation: Home maker
Marital Status: Married 10 years, 2 kids age 7 and 5
Real location: Florida
Originally from: England (South London)
I have been living in Florida for 1 year now. My husband was recruited from England and works for an American company.
The TV here is very different from what I was used to, but I have slowly but surely got hooked on (some of) it. I am enjoying Joe Millionaire, Survivor (Thailand was the first one I saw) and American Idol. I got to see the British version before moving over here, so if you have any questions about it, then I'm the one to ask!
I really like this forum and will be visiting often.
Welcome, Shayla and LOTL! Lady, you and fluff will have some stuff to talk about. She's a transplanted Brit, too.
And Shayla, if one of your classrooms is a sex hotel in disguise, I expect you to post it here first
No problem.And Shayla, if one of your classrooms is a sex hotel in disguise, I expect you to post it here first
That was actually a fun episode. Several students would stand on the landing and alert the couple of an approaching teacher or school administrator. The jazzy bomp-chikka music would stop playing and the bed would turn back into a couch. Ultimately, everyone got in big trouble, and the Mr. Madam was tried in student court.
I rarelly venture in here anymore... not very friendly of me!
Welccome to all the new members. This is a great board, you will have a blast here. It is a great place to hang out
