haha, yes, i agree social graces are great to have. maybe i'm being a little to charitable, but i took him to be making a dig relating to gumming up the boards with stuff that tends to not relate so much to the thread topic - or at least is tiring to read through if you're not one of the more frequent posters. there are hundreds of guests and readers who never post but get annoyed (they express it occasionally) that they have to cycle through pages and pages of chat in order to get useful info - or put up info requests that end up getting ignored because they're swamped by the chat of more frequent posters. not trying to be combative, or finger pointing, but just saying - it's a consideration to keep in mind. it can get really bad for some of the other threads.
of course, it sounds like masterhearts just IS one of those posters, so maybe that is being a little too charitable after all...
and yes - i always read it as master-T-hearts too. *doh*
wow, until you separated it for me, I was just reading master-hearts...
My hopes for today, in order of likelihood of actual occurrence:
1) Brother emails me to say Purple Envelope has arrived (DLS 1/31 and in on ASW, so it's about time...)
2) Brother also says I got a VCE (otherwise haven't been held or anything, and some VCEs to CA/postmarks of 1/31, 2/2 etc for January applicants give me hope.)
3) JR1 email
Feel like I'm on Wheel of Fortune yelling "C'mon BIG MONEY BIG MONEY" as if it actually has some effect.
Except I'm just yelling "C'mon BIG DAY BIG DAY" in my head, alone, in my room, over and over. Hm, maybe I should get to work on my thesis, huh.
