Hello World!

Hello. Me again. Sorry I don't have a more interesting life to tell you about, like if I was a weaver in Mongolia. Or a belly-dancer in Morocco. Ick. Bad image.

Maybe I should employ some guest Hello World! writers so that they can bore you with their lives. Hmmmmm....

It did occur to me, however, how busy we're going to get as September 26th approaches. Due to what I can only describe as divine intervention (May Your Coffee Pot Always Be Full, Captain), I'm on mid-semester break that week so the chances of a nervous breakdown are significantly reduced. Nevertheless I am contemplating installing an intravenous coffee drip in my room.
