Sorry- the code it told me to paste was flawed in some way. I've tried this before and it's really a pain. Maybe I'll be able to fix it...

As a side note, if I haven't been posting much it's because midterms are next week and I've a heap load of work to do what with grading papers and all. I'm so behind, and I've got 11 books checked out from the library right now. Not having the time to read them drives me insane!

Yeah, and what's worse is they're all heavy duty books, except for one P.G. Wodehouse, which I'll proably start and finish tomorrow. I also have 3 more in transit from other libraries...

No, I would say the grass is pretty green on campus, thanks to all the rain we've had lately.

Yes, and in order to have the last word he posts an insignificant parenthetical phrase. Even more tacky. And a smilie isn't a word, so there!
