    Live for the little joys, Vince, live for the little joys.




    And that was meant sincerely, not sarcastically from me.

    For a change.

    Was mostly quiet and peaceful here, Don.

    But honestly, that's mostly good enough for me anymore.

    Good morning! Just had some waffles and bacon, and thought I'd check in and say hello.

    Ahem. I don't know if you noticed, but I now leave trails of profuse coolness. Also, I am a demon hamster.

    This was how I answered questions in High School. It might explain how I had such bad grades.

    That's OK, Vince. The important thing is, you're loved.

    Everyone who can read this is someone I consider to be a friend, so I wanted to take this opportunity to give you all the chance to tell me how much I mean to you.

    Go on, don't be shy.
    Have I told you recently how much you mean to me?

    Oh, I'm keeping it for a bit. I need to scamper up to Query Hell and surprise them. They're used to squirrels, but demon hamsters...

    Cool! I can multiquote, just like the big kids!

    I hate to mention this, but Napoleon died in exile, not in battle.




    Though speaking of, I have to get back in the academic groove. Work resumes tomorrow and mid-term grades are due. And I am not allowed to just fail them all.

    Well that's not fair. What if they all deserved to fail?

    Oh, I'm sorry, I wasn't clear there.

    I meant I'm not allowed to arbitrarily fail them all just because I don't want to be bothered resuming grading today.



    I can fail them all if they earn it, of course.

    Wow, seven pages to catch up on since Friday? Dang, you guys are fast. My head is spinning. And a new member! I love new members....to tease. Heh.

    Sweet.

    Also, this dial up is seriously irking me. I did the multi-quote thing so that I could reply to multiple posts at the same time in this post but none of them show up when I was ready to post, probably due to the stupid slow speed of the dial up. Grrr.

    Sigh. I had so many witty replies to so many posts lined up and now it's all going to waste. I am sad. Well, not really, but a little.

    My brother was supposed to upgrade to DSL, but as usual The Evil Empire, er... I mean At&T goofed up his order again and now he has to get that straightened out...again.
    Grrr...again.

    I hope everyone had a decent weekend so far. I saw Act of Valor with some friends on Saturday. It was a little predictable but it was ok and the ending was sadder and more intense then we thought it would be. Decent war movie, if you're into war movies.

    I'm sure they've earned it. I wouldn't even bother to check.

    Hi Beatrix! Thanks for the rep points!
