I'm A Believer

1) This song is about a guy who fell in love when he saw her face. Do you believe in love at first sight? I don't know about love, but I've had some fantastic relationships from first sight.

2) "I'm a Believer" is the best-selling Monkees song. Can you name another one? Pleasant Valley Sunday

3) On their TV show, the boys competed for the same girl. Have you and a friend ever been romantic rivals? yes, but it wasn't a big deal and neither of us ended up with the guy

4) In another episode, the Monkees visited the circus. If you were confident there was a good strong net beneath you, would you walk across the high wire? sure

5) The Monkees show originally aired on Monday nights. Do you have a favorite day of the week? since I'm on summer vacation, every day is my favorite day

6) Davy Jones guest starred on an episode of The Brady Bunch. The plot revolved around Marcia's efforts to get him to perform at the prom. Share one of your memories from a school dance. we used to have live bands play at our dances when I was in high school, we had some favorite local bands--no one danced, we just sat and listened

7) At the height of their popularity, the Monkees' faces and logo appeared on a lot of merchandise, including lunch boxes. Which would you rather have for lunch -- chicken salad, tuna salad or egg salad? chicken salad, although a good egg salad can be wonderful

8) You have an afternoon all to yourself. Would you rather spend it at the mall, checking out what's new in the stores and people watching, or walking through the forest, observing the birds and trees and leaves? at the mall, if it's a real mall not like our local mall which is desperate

9) Do you have a good memory for names? relatively good, yes--although as a teacher I learn hundreds of names per year and sometimes get confused

After breaks I sometimes confuse names of my kids. :). Vacation is fantastic, but mine is quickly coming to an end. Back with kids on 8/13. Live bands?!?! That sounds fun!

Having the summer off must be great :)

I would fail horribly at trying to remember a new batch of student's names every year. I think I'd just have to point and call them all "Hey You".

Another reason why I would suck as a teacher, as if beeing a poor speller wasn't bad enough

I'd have loved to have live bands at our school dances! That would've been awesome. Our DJs were never great. They were cheap, but you get what you pay for!

Happy Weekend!!

I love how open you are for walking that high wire.

I've never understood how teachers can not only remember all gazillion kids in their classes each semester/grade, but so many of their former students as well. Probably just as well I never went into teaching.

I love the Monkees. When we have 4 people walking (especially if it is my dad) we always do the monkee walk. I would rather be at the mall too!! I love having a good memory for names.
