Also, I need to start drinking more often, because I had a glass of white merlot with dinner, and I'm a little woozy now. (Maybe I'm just not used to the feeling anymore, I don't know.) Maybe I will instate a quota of one (1) Woodchuck Amber per evening or something (I hate the taste of beer), because this is just sad. My favorite drink in college was Long Islands, y'all. And if nothing else, you'll have 100% more annotational entertainment as I attempt to work while toasted.
Oh, Jillian emailed me the other day--"The Extreme Makeover Home Edition show has announced email casting/nomination for Illinois and the more people to send in nominations for us the better." The entry with details at Christina's journal: "The TV show Extreme Makeover Home Edition is casting for the state of Illinois. We have sent in the application but I need the help of my friends and your friends if possible. I only have until May 7 to get as many letters to the producers to try to get our family chosen." She also describes what they need--why they'd like to get on the show.
Another entry from Erin (see previous entry), and it's not good this time. ETA: She's deleted and reposted something else.
More linkspam--I apologize for the sheer massiveness of it, but various crapnesses got in the way of posting. You may want to at least give the headlines a cursory skim, because there's some really good stuff in there.
