If I’m allowed to include HDM, I’ve read 47, nearly 25%. Not bad, especially for someone who did not take a single English course in college.

In other news, I finally finished painting my room, and moving all the furniture back into place. It is now a very lovely pale lavender, and I must say I’m a bit proud of my accomplishment. Now all I have to do is move all of the mountains of stuff in the living room back into my bedroom (at least, what I’m not selling, giving away, or throwing out). Sigh…guess I’d better get to working on that.

HDM

What's HDM?
High Definition Mopsies? or is it more like WMD? Maybe something got transposed...was it supposed to be Her Majesty's Dude? They call him "King" instead of "Dude". The once and future King? The Once-and-Never-Not-quite-really-at-all-anything-to-do-with-a-King?

What's HDM?

sorry for posting such an inane comment. Congrats on your room li'l sis!

Girl, I need to talk to you!

I think you don't have YM, and I don't have AOL, or your email address. Ummm, I'll send you an OWL at FA.
