A few small clarifications and updates:
*My Messageboard of Love has a reprieve! We decided to be extremely lovey-dovey and appreciative of Jill Conner Browne and each other. Let's see how long it lasts.
*Stephan Pastis from Pearls Before Swine let some of my "crockydiles" live, too!
*Emotionally, I'm feeling better. Physically, I have both a cold and a headache. I just needed to hibernate.
*Don't ever let us go too long without 'net access at our house--L'Ailee and I fought because my brother and I couldn't put it back together, so she had to wait for the cable guy yesterday. But everything's better now, both with our connection and with us.
*People want to know what L'Ailee contributed to her school's dress code! It's not that she was a wild kid--anyone who knows her knows that she is, despite appearances, usually a model of cool, ladylike reserve. It's just that she tends to express her wilder side in her dress. The "thou shalt nots" added to her former high school's dress code, specifically on her account, are: elective (that is, non-medical) baldness for females, backless tops under the school uniform jacket, and heels over three inches. She also helped her chess team defeat one at an all-boys' school by having the girls put on makeup, push-up bras, and low-cut tops.
*What's really funny about this, to us, is that I look a lot more conservative, but my personality is much less conservative than hers.
