Good ones, deej.

Grew, it is only day 8. Don't hurt yourself with the numbers. Save your strength for that last week.

In reality, I'm much more worried about the four papers I have to turn in on December 7, one of which I'm made absolutely no progress on in the past month. :mad: The prof changed my topic on me...ok, so he redirected me after telling me to choose something meaningful to me. The other three I think will come together nicely with just a week or so of concentration. I was going to panic about my word count until I remembered that I'd already given myself permission to fail (although I'm sure I won't let that happen).

I still want the Gin though. Can't have it in the house, though, because one of my housemates is allergic.

Isn't she an adult? Can she not refrain from drinking it? Or is she allergic to the smell? That'd be...weird.

Well if's like her coffee allergy, coming in contact with it makes her itch. While that may be amusing for all of five seconds, I'd rather not risk leaving it around. She's actually allergic to pine, juniper...all of the evergreens.

Which makes sense, since gin is made from juniper berries.

But a coffee allergy? God forbid! :-o

Ach, let us never speak of such evils again. :scared:

You know, it's a good thing I gave myself permission to not finish this thing, because that's where I'm headed. On the up side, I may actually have something to work with when my academics slow down.

Then you're still a winner in the long run. Good for you. :-)

Exactly. The only "prize" for winning is an icon for a website. Big whoop. What matters most is that you learned something of yourself and your abilities.
