Since that's mostly how I pronounce it, between it being her name and me
being Allways Right...sorry, wait, I'm being overwhelmed by my superiority
complex. Or, more likely, it's lunchtime and I'm hungry again. I wonder if
I have enough change for onion rings...the non-Terry-Brooks flavored kind.
Actually the giddiness could be the effects of test-driving cataloguing
systems. I know, I already have a perfect one, but since it looks like I
will have tremendous influence on what the school chooses (because nobody
else wants the joyless job) I am just casting about to make sure there isn't
an option better for them. It's making my eyes hurt.
