A Great BL Event

I know we don't even have plans for Ski to Sea set yet ... but I want to throw this idea out for all of you BLs and see what you think. If we have enough people interested, I would announce myself as team captain. I have never participated in Relay for Life, but always have wanted to and with my step mom passing away in August from Liver Cancer, I think now is the best time for me to really get involved. Have any of you lovely BLs participated before? I think if we got a team together, we would have the best 'camp' around, as well as some of the best ideas to raise money, plus its for a great cause! I guess if no one is interested I will make my own one-person team and call you all heathens for not wanting to support a good cause.

Dear Better Lovers, do you recall Kelly's blog post of this picture by Edward Monkton:

WELL, he really does have a fabulous website, and so last week I sent him an email saying:

Dear Mr. Monkton, i am writing YOU to tell you that you have some very silly fans in the Seattle-ish area [see attached]. Mrs. Rafferty

And then I attached this photo:And today, I recieved this email response from our British friend:

What a delightful message, Mrs Rafferty.

Thank you very much for getting in touch and sending me this wonderfully odd photo!

Best wishes,

Edward Monkton.

Delightful! I love the internet....and Mr. Monkton

Message from God.

Kelly, this is God speaking. God says you should NOT, should not in any shape or form, go to Wyoming. What the hell is in Wyoming? The steer to man ratio is like 105 to 1. Do you understand what I'm trying to say, Kelly? Do not go to Wyoming.

You should probably come back to Bellingham and get your buddies in line, because they are just out of control. Nicole just had a phone date with someone who makes board games. His name is Milton Bradley. I don't understand exactly what's that about. She keeps talking about Sorry and I don't know if it's the game or the date itself.

God's got to go back to work, because God's got bills to pay. Hurry back to Bellingham, because some people miss you. God is not one of them, but some people do. Bye.


I think we should get BL trucker hats, or BL beer cozies/coozies, or both.

We would be the envy of the town!

Join The Club

Hey BL-ers! March 1 - 7 is No Cussing Week!

Please give me your ideas within the next five hours.

Someone help me with my lesson plan.

Objective I want to teach: Students will understand the changes in gender representation from previous eras to the Modernist Era.

Objective I should probably teach: Students will understand how the purpose of art and literature changed from the Victorian Era to the Modernist Era.

Text: "Eveline" by James Joyce

Go. Help me.

ALSO, on Tuesday I was asked to talk about American media and the Obamas. My focus might be, "Would Barack Obama have been elected if it weren't for the media?" or something similar, because there's ALWAYS media, and I want to discuss the modernness.

You can go ahead and help me with that, too.
