Except this is a friggin Geography paper. I think the prof went to school with Leacock.

edit: Ohhhhh, excellent point about the hardship issues. Never occured to me to examine that aspect. I'll save a few apple turnovers for you if I can. Yes another tough day of teaching tomorrow. Apple and cranberry turnovers. Next week is tougher. Test for the little angles and then double stuffed potaotos.

And I get paid to do this.

jees.... took you long enough to get home.

With my family being from rural Quebec going back forever, there is NOTHING easy about that kind of living, no matter what period.
I've had relatives have to get off the farm for mining.

Either that's card pluralized or it's going to be about as thick as a phone book.

I guess its time to toss the winter tires onto the commuter. I wonder if it would be a good idea to do it while I'm waiting at the laundromat... I'd end up with dirty hands (not great for folding!) Also, I hate that I need a light for the commute home now.
