Pencil powers  
I noticed that my TA corrected my paper in pencil. everyone has to re-write their essay, and originally there was a note saying to cite all my sources (which I would have complied with, except all my sources are notes from the lecture, and nothing is directly quoted or even paraphrased from that!) so I erased the note that says "cite sources." so now I dont have to, because I wasn't told to. (and we turn inthe original paper, so she will see that there is no note. hahahahah!)

yeah, but that won't keep her from dinging you for it anyway.

yes it will, because no one else had to cite sources that didn't exist. anyway, she didn't take any points off. I think it was just a sugestion.

gah! have you no morals and/or self respect?

See, the hidden trick to this, is that citing our sources was not even part of the assignment, nor was i penalized for not doing it in the first place. Add to that the fact that no other section was asked to cite sources, along with the fact that there was nothing in my paper that I could have cited, brings me to the conclusion that the penciled note was more of a helpfull tip than concrete instructions. her point is duly noted, and i intende to cite sources in the future.

so all in all, this really wasnt as devious as it may appear on the cursoury reading. much like saying "I was driving 70 mph on my way to school," and failing to mention that you were on the freeway.

hey budy, you can rationalize it all you want! but deep down you know you did wrong!

much like when I had an illigitimate child...

but keep that on the DL, ok?

i dont think they make erasers big enough to rub out that mistake!

especially because it was with my sister.

appearently she's a firstyear student at UC santa cruz, where ever that is. her name is lauren, and she likes beans.

does she also have a third eye?

are you that livejournal person someone told me about who responds to every comment? cause you dont have to. unless of course you want to have the last word, in which case you can reply to this and I wont reply back. then you can say "ha!" in my face.

and she does have a third eye. and i hear her bipples taste like chicken jerky.
