Yes I know, not an original topic. But I figured it would be a nice prequel to "20 Hypothetical Questions Episode Whateverthehellwe'reonrightnow" (sorry, fatty :))

Also, I must say, sometime in the near future I am going to open fire in a public restroom. Is it REALLY THAT HARD for a person to flush the damn toilet after they use it? Nooooo, they must leave the pleasing sight and delicate aroma there for the next innocent victim. Ladies, PLEASE practice the fundamentals of basic hygiene and courtesy? Is it too much to ask?
I feel better now. Vent away.
I hate the big-wigs of the WB for canceling Angel and renewing such shit shows as 7th Heaven and Rheba(sp?). Both of the shows have DREADFUL acting, writing and direction. And, oddly enough, are LESS believable that Angel. I would also like to publicly damn my brother for getting me hooked on that damned show in the first place. ;)

APOSTROPHES ARE NOT THAT HARD PEOPLE, GET IT RIGHT.

And today it was my math teacher, who has known me for nine months. For crying out loud...
