Things I Have Learned and Now Share.

If I die tomorrow, I die wiser, for I will never, ever, not even entertaining the thought for one stupid fucking microsecond of a moment, tell myself that I can fill in the page numbers for my references later. Later being, of course, two and a half months later.

I hate myself so much right now.

I went through it with Victoriana--I think we all have to learn it painfully. But you'll feel the better for it later.

at least it's only for one chapter, painful as it is. if it was for the whole thing... man, i think i'd just give up ;)

To be honest, I realized that I'd made the mistake when I still had about six months' time before the book was due, so I had time to correct my mistake. But, yeah, I was...livid with myself. :-)

After Bush is going I'll shift my aim to whatever conservative Republican is available. Like stds they're never going away.
