Update circa December 12th: School=whoa but the amazon marketplace is helpful. You too can spend only 2.99 on a text book and then pay more than that for the shipping! Also: Actually went to a Backstreet Boys concert. Embarassed? Yes. Still screamed like a teeny bopper? Well....I won't confirm or deny anything. Talk to my publicist. (I don't have a publicist, but as soon as I do, I'll be sure to let you know how to contact him or her. Any volunteers?)
Update circa June 11th: Amazon marketplace not so helpful, as they lost my 18 bucks. Still managed to get a copy of the civil war text in time for the class to start. Between costuming (I'm doing someone else's renn. stuff now, as well. I've branched out.), summer session, calculating the years until I'm on my way to possibly Indiana for a doctoral program AND packing up to move soon, life is crazy hectic. But I wouldn't have it any other way.
Also: Note to self: Return books to library and pick up reserves by the 14th..of June. And when I see this around the 24th or so, I'll think "Bugger!"
