Second Congratulatory Gift

Here is my second congratulatory gift (the first was a CD of 'inspirational' music from a friend). It's from my secret pal at school. Isn't this a nice pen set!? And the OU stickers....awww.
Not *quite* there yet, maybe when I start going to class the OU crazy-mania will hit me.


On another note.....something has been bothering me. I think this calls for a vote. At work, a school, mind you, would you rather get an email asking you a question or a phone call? Cuz, see, the whole phone call thing just annoys me. I have kids to work with! I can't come take your call right now, and then later during my precious 15.2 minutes of lunch (kidding) I have to find time to call you back only for you to say "Hey, if you talk to so-and-so today, would you tell her I'm leaving her a key in her box?" Um. Yeah. Why don't you just leave her a note?! (The person doesn't have email yet, so she couldn't email her, not that she would've anyway, because she's obviously a *caller*.....) But I can check my email about 20 times a day because it only takes a second, and I can even respond a lot faster because I don't have to leave my room! Ok, done ranting, go vote!

Uh-oh, you've got sooner fever; there is no hope, it is terminal. Seriously, I am so proud that you've been accepted!
OK, about the call vs email: If I am at work, an email, since it's a better use of time. If I am at home, I like the personal touch of a phone call. So I'm a 50-50 vote; do you have a place to vote half-and-half?

The 15 minute lunch is NOT an exaggeration...I think it's more like 12 minutes...from the time one class leaves your room, someone stays to ask a question, you clean up after them, eat fast, then set up for your next class...only another teacher really understands...
