today, my first day at home, was spent christmas shopping with mother. i convinced her to spend $90 on a coat for me. and apparently i was a good luck charm for finding the gifts she needed to. i’m still a little lovesick, coweyed, moonstruck, but that is only to be expected. apparently, i, he who has too many versions of Lord of the Rings to his name still doesn’t have the one necessary for this class i am taking. i need one with continuous pagination. granted, i have this version, but not this version which is the one we are supposed to have. my version is better.
