I'd just like to point out that if you're wondering where the "bad words" in my original post went today, you're not the only one! Apparently, a new editor is in town, and his name is Andy.
He expressed some horror the other day at my profanity, because apparently his mom's elementary-school class may be reading this blog at some point. (No one told me!) So I agreed, grudgingly, to put on my youth-friendly writing cap for future posts. Then I logged back in today, thinking I might take a pass back through that first post to see if I could clean it up for young eyes...and I saw that my work had already been done for me.
I could get, um, peeved, but what's the point if I can't curse about it? =)
Still, I feel a little bit like I'm in a strange, 1984-like world today. The truth of the internet, constantly revisable...
But it's cool, it's cool. Welcome, fifth graders--I hope you enjoy our blog.
