I actually did. he was nice and we had a nice conversation, we actually have a couple of mutual friends. I figured that I honestly should have been much clearer in terms of what I wanted from him, and I told him at the end what I wanted next time, if I go back.

As cool as that looks, I'm barely cut out for Drottkvaett. I can't even get my head around the agglutinative grammar in turkic languages, let alone how to make the meters work. I'm also a (bad) linguist, not a poet, so we'll leave that to incandescent.

i dont have any, but i have steered my brothers to buy 4 of them. they look really nice, and they have been able to get them for as low as 250 when there is a great sale going on.

"Think about it." It drives me nuts when people say this, as it presupposes that I have not thought about it, and that if I had bothered to think about it, of course I would agree.

I hate when people, particularly subordinates, finish with, "Does that make sense?" It is usually used when something actually does not make sense, the story is incomplete, etc.

In know, right? Stream of consciousness commentary to one's supervisor isn't usually a plus to one's career. Save it for ur blog mang.
