"Melissa I can't believe how much we have in common! It's almost scary! One of my very best friends from SMU was PSEO from Rosemount. She was saying the same thing about PSEO students! You're very lucky to have had the chance to take college courses! I guess it's more popular and easy to do now! You must be a smart one...I couldn't have done that when I was high school! Way to go!"
Yup, and as you could see all of my stalking...we continue to have much more in common. Now to get a little more freaky, what years were you at SMU in Winona? Also, I'm curious
how someone from Rosemount was doing PSEO at SMU? Oh but I guess it's not that strange, I mean I was from Winona at MSU in Mankato...lol! My silly family moved during my senior year, maybe it was the same for her too!
I think having a map of where everyone is located on the first post of the thread would be great! And then a list of where everyone is from and perhaps their 'real' name (if they want) next to their screen name?! I get confused with so many different people! Maybe I can manage to remember the Midewestern porition of the site!
Will do, I think I'll take down some of my MN pride stuff and maybe mention Midwest a bit more prominently in the title of the thread....how's that sound guys.
"I used to run websites myself but stopped due to time and resources."
Wow, now that's something I don't know anything about....but then my hubby's the computer guy, :smash:so I can always ask him for help!
"I am learning a lot with Photoshop myself (yes, mine are all made myself as well)"
Lol, myne too....but self taught. :nod:I just started fiddling one day and I've known bits for photo stuff! In fact I have the coolest PHotoshop Elements book for digital photographers, and I learned this weekend how to restore old photos that are full of dust and scratch marks. It is so cool and how to manually sharpen photos, because well here's saying it..the auto command just doesn't too the trick. I do love seeing all of your sigs, it's like a new one each day!!
"So Melissa(sooks) I say to you: Don't worry you will get there some day!"
So true, I mean look you're almost to 100 now and with 100 posts you get the blessed fun pretty stick power!
"I am on the student government. .... Melissa(Mas) did I ever tell you that I want to be a first grade teacher"
Cool to both! Teacher rocks, my sister-in-law teaches 1st grade! She is incredible with those oh so needy 1st graders! I prefere middle school the best, but high school is good too! It is nice that the grade schoolers love you though, I guess I'm more of a fan of the love-hate relationship....yet my students love me!
I mean how couldn't they? *sticks big nose in the air*
"Melissa, my friend, your sigs never fail to amaze me! "
Thanks again, I do my best work -- especially for my friends!
"Uh-oh! Am I the only non-Minnesota midwesterner here? Yikes! "
Nah, but you are the BEST one...lol!
We're glad to have your company here!
"I have to say that I am not looking forward to the next semester to begin as I have a class on Tuesday nights in Minneapolis and I won't get home until WAY after the show is over! !"
I hear ya, a couple of tuesdays a month, I take care of the 8-11 year-old girls for activity nights at church. I do miss the 'live' like element...but it is nice to 'race' thru the adds when I get home.
SooksMe too, but did anyone else get that announcement scrolling across the screen that this network might not carry the CW anymore?!
"I really just wanted to say how excited I am that we see yet another new espisode of Gilmore Girls tonight! (I'm sure that's a common statement around here but had to say it to someone!)"
Did anyone else freak out, just like me and not even caught the convo that was happening at the time!
I'm so FREAKING out :fight:and about ready to write a flaming letter about how many shows I enjoy on the CW! I think I'm going to cry, please say it ain't so!!!!!!
my DVR! "
Me too, it's the best thing.....I Hope I'll be able to continue using it to DVD the rest of the season. That whole announcement has gotten me really mad, we might have to change TV providers!
Michelly - Spoilers = EVIL! !!!
"s far as talking about things: well, I don't know if you read spoilers or not (I DO! I DO!), but if you are "spoiler free", you qualify to be a Spree. In their thread, they go into great detail about their lives to distract themselves from reading spoilers! I now defer you to the "other" Melissa in MN, MasBYUgal. She is a certified Spree and can fill you in! "
I love being surprised, plus I really don't have time to go out and search for spoilers!
Ha - I love this thread so far! "
Yeah, keep it up gals!
Cool table I'm a sensing!
"not just detail oriented, but also friendly,"
Just a little Minnesota nice, spreading around the world.
"Melissa (the expert) - is it your vision to allow us to talk about anything within this thread or are there limits? "
Lol, I'm an expert. Coolness....I guess I was kind of envisioning it along the lines of the spree thread. Lots of length and meat to our posts, we can get to know each other really well as long as keep up with MINNESOTA/MIDWESTERN events. Like the big snow storm on the way...lol!Did anyone else have thunder and lightening this morning?
, it was nuts. Luckily the school I work at had a late start date today and I was in the shower and the thunder was shaking the house! Crazy huh? It's almost December and thunder storms? GO figure?
Okay, we need to do something so know one confuses the two of us Sooks. I mean we could always call you Sooks, but I think first names are so important if everyone is comfortable enough to share them. Everyone can call me Mel
if you want and we can call you Melissa. I've NEVER BEEN A BIG Missy fan, unless you are?.....Lets figure something out...
