Today is especially nice as far as Fridays go because I'm done with finals! Hip-hip HUZZAH!
Actually, I lie. I have one more final to do sometime today. It's a take home that I have to e-mail into the professor. I think I'll bang it out over a nice glass of orange juice while rocking out to Dio.
Also, no offense to anybody, but if you posted a diary that got deleted, it was probably because it was half a sentence and then trash to fill the word count. We're trying to discourage that.

I only joke because I care. This reminds me though that I should get my first player done today. Don't anybody worry, because I'll so totally get it done. My player is good.
- Is Towers' job on the line this year? - Down at the bottom of this page. Check the notes. I don't even know why this is a question. We're not talking about a government office job here. You need to be judged continually or else you're not concerned with winning. On the flip side, Towers just won a division title (albeit with the 82-80 record), but he still achieved success. So...
