Re. the pet peeve post:
Oh my gosh!!! Me too!! Chalkboards I mean. I wouldn't call it a pet peeve though. For me it's just...an awful thing. The board, the chalk, seeing either. I've figured out that I am more sensitive than most people to textures in general, so textures I may have found uncomfortable if I were *ahem* normal are like a nightmare for me rather than, just uncomfortable. I don't even touch similar textures, like newspapers. I am certain that I would not have gone into teaching if whiteboards had not replaced chalkboards.
You are not alone, Drewzer.
Praise whiteboards! You and I should write the inventor of whiteboards a letter expressing our admiration and thanks his/her role in the dissolution of *grits teeth* chalkboards!
