slow news week

October 31, 2007

As the title suggests, don’t expect a lot of news this week.  It’s not that I don’t have any to post, I’m just crushed with massive amounts of homework again.  In fact I have more recommendations to post than ever.  You’ve probably noticed my sporadic posting; I’ll have upwards of 5 posts one day and nothing for the next week or weeks.  So sit tight I guess.  I know I have some other emails to answer but I have to finish up these papers for class first. 

 

In the meantime, Happy Halloween!
