  • Mood:
i give. can't sleep. i'll just have to try to pass out early tonight.

the Cough of Doom seems to be mostly gone, though.

so i was talking to my mom this morning, and i mentioned one of my roommates's mildly insane class schedule. :) [*ducks*] [this started from me telling my mother that i found the row of BCC postcards on the bulletin board amusing, and about moving the DND game.] my mom says "oh, you mean she doesn't have a degree?" "no, mom... most of my friends up here these days don't. in fact, i can think of two in Seattle that do." [though i'm sure there are more, i just couldn't think right then.] "oh."

i don't think my mom realizes that both my roommates are a couple years younger than me, and still very much in a legitimate age range for college, take I. still... i think she expects people to have degrees. i'm starting to get to the point that i don't. or rather, i don't really expect either way.

however, curiousity killed the cat, and all that, so we present one very long poll...

    Yuletide letter placeholder, ahoy!

    I did Not Prime Time this year, which made me actually write something for the first time since Yuletide. It was fun! It was also a lot more low key…
