Did I tell you I had 14 days left in my Master's Program?
It has been consuming my entire life, which accounts for boring posts, exhausted Alex, and boring posts.
What the hell does a girl have to do to get some comments around here, anyway?
It frustrates me that people involved in ongoing flame wars get readership and comments galore.
Instead of sleeping with someone, looks like I should piss someone off...Like I can see that happening, the blogsphere Passive Agressive. Guess I'll just keep groveling.

That's OK. I don't get any comments either.

Maybe we'll comment for each other...

OTOH, you are ONLY 14 days from completeing your Masters.

Good on you!

I haven't been getting comments lately either!

But yay! for your almost-completed master's.

Bah. Comments. Overrated.

Sorry I haven't been around, been doing hubby stuff and dad stuff and you know, just stuff.

I hope you're hanging in there and I'll page you on MSN some time soon.

I always comment.. even if it makes no sense I still comment.
So 14 days until you're here?
I won't eat sushi but I'll drink like a fish!

Thanks for the words of encouragement...13 days, 13 days. I think I was just feeling pissy yesterday. Imagine that ;)

I don't know why I like comments so much. I think I compared them to crack, before. Sometimes I just feel frustrated, I think. Definitely. THPT. I guess I should expect beaucoup comments when I don't have time to give beaucoup comments.

Believe me, I was not finger pointing at YOU of all people. Especially since I have barely been making it down my blog roll! I guess I just felt like complaining.

Last class ends in 13 days - the actual ceremony isn't until July 24th, you both are still going to be there, right? Right? Right? Poke. Poke.

i don't get many comments either, chica.

but, anyway, congrats on finishing your master's. i'm graduating with mine in 2 days, and i can't wait. it's such an awesome accomplishment.

i hope things are going well. email if you need to talk.

Hey Alex!

First, CONGRATULATIONS on your Master's. I know you are counting down the days and hours at this point!

Second, I am terrible about never commenting. I always read but rarely comment. I will try to speak up more often!

on May 8, 2004 09:14 AM Alex. said:


You know I think you rock. Maybe you can lend me your hood. I'm scared of the whole damn thing, quite honestly!

I don't want to FORCE you to comment. I was being pissy (imagine that!) I will admit, though, that I read your blog all the time. I just didn't comment because I didn't think you knew who I was, being that you were one of the Mosaic Minds Blogstars, and all! I am not worthy! :)
