Hi again. I'm really angry at the computer at the moment - I can't open my e-mail inbox without the message that iexplore "has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down." (I can, however, SEND e-mail... but that's kind of pointless when you don't know what people are saying to you.) I see that I have a new mail from Martin (a long one, 16kb) and I can't read it because the computer freezes as soon as the mailbox opens. Same with the comments on my website and some links on other sites - I get the same error message. And they gave us a big long lecture about not using the lodge computers, so I can't use those anymore either. If it were something more "essential", like booking a flight or registering for classes, I could ask Billy to use his computer, but since it's just for "fun", I can't. And my last day off is tomorrow, a Sunday, so the library is closed and I can't use those computers either. So basically what it means is that (probably) no one will hear from me again until I leave. Sigh. Glad I'm going home on Wednesday.

Oh, Mom, by the way, I finished filling out that stupid driving booklet - all I have to do when I get home is watch the video and answer the questions that pertain to that, plus get two more passengers to fill out the passenger pages. Then I'm done. I must say that I think this is a silly hoop to jump through (as you put it), especially since I'm 20 and have been driving for almost 5 years already. For Catie it might be beneficial, and others under 18, but for older drivers there really is no point. I really think they could find an easier way of giving us insurance discounts, but whatever.

Gonna go now and teach class. Just today and Monday and Tuesday left of classes - Sunday's the canoe meet and all that - and then Wednesday I LEAVE... YAY!!!
