:augh:

Assuming that to do your paper you need the computer but don't need internet access, unplug your modem and let the power cord fall under the desk.

If reading the boards means crawling around on the floor first, you'll probably be less likely to do it.

Whether or not you'll then actually work on the paper is another question entirely, but you won't be reading the boards.


P.S.: I should be working right now. :)

Oh my G-d! If I even start thinking about the sewing projects that I have, I'll simply pass out! Eric, all I can say is, "good luck with that!"

I finally finished, at about 3 this morning. When I got up to leave, I forgot that I still needed to write a reflective page about what I thought about the paper. Ugh. Next time, seriously, I'm going to start earlier. I mean it this time.

My question exactly... Eric, what's a "Gates of Hell" dress? Pics peese?

and I'm so anal... I've got a spreadsheet cataloguing all of my garb and yet to do pieces... And my "DONE" stamp isn't a stamp, it's more of a color code change. It's such a relief to see a listed item go from red to black on the monitor... and I've still got:

3 leather bodices
2 boned bodices
1 full length chemise
2 short chemise
2 skirts
and I'm not even looking at the fey garb until this summer. :faint:
