Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.

Well, this isn't quite accurate, since white attracts everything.

Yes, I must admit we bought it too.

My favorite line is,
"Smashing in the fact of a pinata that resembles Summer Wheatley is a disgrace to you, me, and the entire Gem State."
Now who TALKS like that? And yet it exactly captures the principal's personality and the whole feel of the movie.

I've said, on more than one occasion recently, that *I* should the one wearing a bib instead of the 2 and 1 year olds in my house.
