99. What is one thing that attracts you to the opposite sex?: They're decorative and they smell nice. Oh, and good hugs. And bad puns. In someone of the opposite sex, I look (physically) for longish to long blond hair and glasses, and mentally/personality for good sense of humor, computer competence, and other compatible traits (unlisted by request).
100. Are you thankful for your friends?: I'd be dead without them.

Got chewed out from four different directions this morning. First, my best friend wanted to know why I hadn't come to school on time as usual. (Zing!) Then, my sister grouched at me for staying up so late: it was bad for me. Then her boyfriend just glared in my general direction over the phone. Then, icing on a cake of grouchiness, David was late to work.

I'm sorry!!!

I didn't mean to stay up that late! I didn't mean to keep you up that late!

Math Class

Got to review my teacher today. HA HA HA HA !! All his reviews are belong to the students, so he's going to come out looking fairly lousy. I wrote down what I've been saying all along, minus most of the profanity, and I'm going to Xerox my last test and the extra credit he's been giving and hand it over to the Dean or something. This really pisses me off. I don't want to have to take it over again, but it's equally academic dishonesty if the teacher is falsely inflating student grades.
