They make me swear that I won't help any of the other candidates. I swear Today I commented that I was glad I didn't have to keep time management charts. What a busy day: 1.

BLOGGERS ARE READING IN LARGE QUANTITIES...ARE YOU? I cried out, "AVIRA KADAVIRA!" and one little girl jumped and shrieked! I put my little darlings in a large group circle this morning at 7:40 A.M.
