and certainly a large number of Jesuses (but that comes with the territory)
I also get the "typical" "odd" names like Lavita, Laquanda, Benessa, Tamika, Tenisha, Chanell, Bettina, and even Griselda, etc. pretty frequently.
But this semester I have a Shennandoah as well, and I think that's pretty damn awesome!

And now, here they are, my cars parked side by side.
The Golf is longer, the Jeep is taller - but they are both pretty tiny compared with the majority of vehicles around here. I felt like I was a pro parallel parker in the Jeep last week at work - I could squeeze its short little body in some pretty impressive spaces. It's really easy to parallel park when you're sitting up higher!
Amelia had an egg baby to look after for Home-Ec - lucky for her Hazen was a willing babysitter...
Amelia jumping Raffi impressively... she's the only one of us who earned her food!
We had a couple of nice post-riding lunches at the ranch house (which has bizarre decorations on the walls)

The chopstick wrapper illustrated how to use chopsticks if you have extraneous digits, too few digits, or perhaps a lobster claw, depending on which part of the illustration you are examining. We also weren't sure what we were picking up with the chopsticks: a coin? a paper towel roll?

|IMPORTANT NOTICE: Possible Inclement Weather|
Date: January 10, 2007
To: All Bakersfield College and District Office Employees
From: G*** C**********, Associate Chancellor, Educational Services
At the present time, national and local weather forecasters are predicting noticeable amounts of snowfall within the Bakersfield community overnight and on the morning of Friday, January 12, 2007. In order to alleviate some of the potential problems encountered during the 1999 heavy snowfall, administration will evaluate the situation early Friday and issue a decision regarding closure of Bakersfield College and the District Office.
If a decision is made to close Bakersfield College and the District Office, the information will be given to the local media (radio and television) for publication. A notice will also be posted at the Bakersfield College and District websites. In addition to checking these resources before coming to work on Friday, personnel are strongly encouraged to call the telephone numbers below to determine if a snow closure notice exists.
Bakersfield College 395-****
Kern Community College District Office 336-****
If a snow closure is determined at your job site, please do not come to work!
Thank you.Granted, it has been reaching around freezing at night, however, I highly doubt the likelihood that we could get enough snow to actually last during the day and cause problems. Well, if there were Canadians driving around Bakersfield that is...
