Friendly Friday Fragments with Questions Even

Thanks to Mrs. 4444's for hosting Fragments and Joy for doing the same for Friendly Friday.  Can't forget Hilary for her wonderful questions.

Friday Fragments.

    Mommy's Idea
  • I am speaking at another conference this weekend.  Two in a row. Looking forward to seeing all of the North Carolina Festival Folks.
    • On a related note: You can view the presentation here.
  • I got to have a sort of lunch with Heather this week.  Otherwise, we have been two ships passing in the night. 
    • On a related note: There is only three more four more weeks of this schedule from places unmentionable left.
  • I am starting to use my blog for teaching my classes.  I didn't know how it would work but it seems to be doing okay.  If you really want to know what an RFP is click here.
    • On a related note: I have bonus points ready for any of my readers that submit the assignment at the end.
  • Working on my annual review today.  It is not that often that one has a year as good as I had in 2012.  On the student teaching evaluations there is a question, "The professor is an effective teacher." My scores, I averaged 4.9 out of 5.0.
    • On a related note: In my publishing I hit four top twenty journals with two in top five.  That is a career for some people.

Friendship Friday - Blog Goals

That is a good question.  I do not really have blog goals.  It is just really blog as a form of mental masterba- well-lets just call it self gratification that people have a strange desire to look upon now and then.  For instance, I did officially go over 50,000 all time page views this week and have been averaging over 5,000 a month recently (knowing these numbers makes my quantoid heart proud).  Sincerely, I thank everyone who stops by and I really do love comments.

Since this is about some shameless self promotion (and I am not above that), I invite everyone to participate in the hops that I host on a weekly basis.  They are:

The Monday Quiz About Me
Wordless Wednesday
Thirsty for Comments Thursday

So drop on by and try one of these out.

P.S. Heather is looking for a couple of co-hosts for Thirsty for Thursday - so hop over to if you are interested.

Friday Four Fill In Fun
This week’s statements:

1. Making sense is hard.

2. I get happy easily.

3. The number of emails in my inbox is insane and a little out of control.

4. Traveling  to conferences makes me feel beat up for the next week but it is generally worth it.

Me, presenting at this conference last year.  Ignore how big the belly looks.
