    LOL, I thought you guys would enjoy reading it.  That is actually what a teammate, from my last class, submitted as his contribution to a group business research paper.  Like the the day before the paper was due!!  I had stupidly volunteered to put the paper together and ended up staying up very late working on fixing it.  I didn't have time to deal with this person, and I am not the greatest writter, but I can put together decent stuff when I focus.  So I figured it was easier to fix his part, than to try and have him submitt something that made sense.  But we got an A, or I got an A anyways

    Jesus, I think it's not very nice that you put my portion of the paper up there like that!

    Looks to me that the CDC may have been redistributing their wealth of knowledge.

     

     

    But your story reminds me of graduate school.  I had one group partner that consistently provided research with the most pictures.  She would have been presenting coloring books if they were in Maryland's library.  Anyway, ... on a topic of business globalization, she presented a telecom company common in Europe and North Africa.  To describe the business' operations, she copied directly from the company's annual report.  I was proof-reading for the group and noticed that there were an abundance of complete sentences and not one dangling participle.  I was stunned at her sudden inteligence.  I googled a few lines which took me right to the source.  I had to rewrite her entire section since it was due the next day and she was unreachable.  Fortunately, we graded each other which accounted for 20% of our semester grade.  She got what she earned.

    OMG!!!!  Sara - that is so awful, the worst.  If it is not too late (kitty is not too stiff...blunt, i know), put the kitty in a small box.  when my kitty was hit by a car, the vet curled her up in a small box so it looked like she was sleeping...didn't freak my kids out as much.  If it is really cold outside, the back porch is the best idea.

    I think she needs two whiskey glasses, and a bottle of Johnny Walker.  Two glasses so that one will be always full while she drinks the other one

    I can make "so-good" brownies or lindzer tarts (I've never made them all by myself but they are soooo good when I help my mom!) or a big bottle of wine? Hard liquor of your choice? Beer?
