I Wanna Brag About Me

I haven't had much to say about school this semester. That's because all is quiet. I love my professor and my classmates are most pleasant also. My other class is online, so not much to talk about there. Last night I experienced a proud moment, and had not a soul to share it with. My on campus class is a research and writing class.

Every week we write a short paper about some topic. Last week was our mid term exam. The professor stated last night that she was not happy with the midterms. They would need to be rewritten or modified. She said only two people in the class submitted papers worthy of being graded. She had copied them and passed them out to all of us. I was shocked to see my paper! Mine! Mine was one of the two "good" papers!

I was especially surprised because I really didn't spend as much time as I should have on the paper. As a matter of fact, I wrote and submitted the paper in the same evening. I really didn't feel that I submitted my best work.

She also used another one of my papers as a "good" example. Now every time I do something really air headed, I can reflect on the time that my paper was passed out to the whole class as a good example of a paper. I know I use a lot of slang on my blog, but I really do know how to speak. Well except for this one line of my paper that declares that "the world is full of nuts". I wish I would have said something like, "The world is full of unsavory charachters". Doesn't that sound much better? I think so.

After my most recent posting regarding the IRS, my refund is being processed. Someone from the IRS must be reading my blog. I mean it COULD happen. This is wonderful news as I don't know how much longer Sissy's car is going to last. It's in pretty bad shape now. Every time I stop, I have to put the car in neutral and then back in drive again. If I don't do this, the car won't drive. It just revs up really loudly. So I guess my tax money (as I predicted) will make a brief appearance and be gone shortly afterward. Never to be seen again. Sniffle. Sniffle.

I have changed mind a minimum of three times about the kind of car I want. I won't say anything about it here, just in case I change my mind again. I keep going back and forth between a really small car or a small SUV. What should I pick?

YAY YOU on the paper!

We have a Jeep Liberty and we really love it. It, of course, does not ride as smoothly as the van or a car, but it is nice here in the ice and snow. But do you get ice and snow...? And the little hatch back thingy (is that what it's called on a jeep?) just seems a little more convenient than a trunk. I know you will make a good decision.
Good Luck.

I am really leaning towards the small SUV. We hardly ever get any snow or ice here. If a flake of snow falls from the sky, the schools close. I REALLY want the SUV....deep in my heart. I have no practical reason other than I just like small SUV's.
