plagiarism

these little yellow birds have been hanging around the house for the past two weeks. I noticed today that they’ve started building a nest hanging from the Christmas lights outside.. which are right by the front door. why build a nest right where hoards of people stream past every day?
it means the Christmas lights must now stay there forever. but can never be turned on, because they’re building right around a bulb. i’m sure they don’t want a blue christmas light flashing all night in their little house.

WHEN I TYPE IN CAPITALS, I’M REALLY HOLDING DOWN THE SHIFT KEY, WHICH MEANS WHEN IT COMES TO PUNCTUATION I HAVE TO UNHOLD THE SHIFT KEY, WHICH IS UNCOMFORTABLE.

mumm’s computer is broken. it’ll only start up in safe mode. if I try normal mode it makes a louder-than-usual grinding noise for about 5 minutes and then just stops, and seems to shut down, only it still sounds on. this is after seeing “found a registry error” and restarting last night, only it never restarted.
at least it isn’t mine. gosh, how panicked would I be. i’d better do a backup.

Sarah got her OP in the mail today. she walked in and wordlessly handed it to me.
14.
she said, “oh well, I can still go to Townsville,” her voice thick with barely-held-in tears. shrugged, half-laughed, and locked herself in her room.
I can’t remember if I mentioned it, but she got caught plagiarising two drama essays. they give a warning after the first one, only she handed in the second one before her teacher had graded the first, thus before she got any warning. so she failed drama, and failing! dramatically impacts your OP!

I failed chemistry, physics and maths B. you don’t even want to know my OP. 🙂
of course I’d ceased attendance after the first semester, so it’s a miracle I passed at all.
