We had a great 9 day-I celebrated 9 with all of my classes, yelling "nueve" with the second graders at 9:09:09, playing 9 games with everyone else.

Matthew and I drove around town looking for a tasty #9, finally settling on Taco Bell.

Then I worked on my class for what felt like 9 hours. :)

Now I know you've been waiting with bated breath...

9 Quiz answers:

1. William Henry Harrison

2. New Hampshire

3. Here's a list

4. Kazakhstan

5. 1 Kings 9: 9 And they shall answer, Because they forsook the LORD their God, who brought forth their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and have taken hold upon other gods, and have worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil.

6. Self-checking.

7. Hotel Room Service by Pitbull (but I'm checking at night, so is it possible it has changed? Linda answered with something different earlier today) (additionally, I have never heard of the band or the song. Does that make me old?)

8. Another list

9. Fluorine

I was tempted to try and make something for prizes, even entertaining the idea of 9-patch quilt blocks...I could make potholders, or table runners! Thankfully I was able to reign it in.

I made up little prize baggies of 9 each of 9 different flavors of Jelly Bellies. I'll be sending those out to all the participants; Linda, Mary Ann, Sarah, and Sara, thanks for celebrating with me!

And, because the point of the day was to commemorate 09/09/09 and really enjoy it, I'll also be sending out a baggie to Michele, who celebrated by having a baby boy...9 lbs! Made my year. :)

Now, I've got 4 gifties left...leave me a comment and tell me how you celebrated, and I'll send you one!

Um, I went to work. And I told 9 students 9 times that they could not drop all 9 of their english classes.
