I DO MATH, so thank you very much (updated)

Hey, a big thank you to those of you who've stopped by my blog the past few days. I've had quite a bit more traffic than usual so....

I did a little math.

Math, you ask? Yes. I calcutlated some averages. Now, it wasn't easy, I'll admit, getting to where I am today, mathematically.

***b Highschool Story Thyme b***

In highschool my Algebra II teacher, Mrs. Patton, told me, "Cory, you have like, an F+ in my class. It is a week before school is going to be out. To pass my class you must pass the final."

"Alright, Mrs. Patton! I'll do it! I'll do it!" quoth I.

I set about to make the best grade of my life. Yes, I'd hardly passed Geometry; yes, I'd nearly failed Algerba I; yes I actually did fail Chemistry [Professor says, "Cory, you've got like, an F-zero in my class. You will not pass." But you know what! ...I sure showed him or not! And I took Driver's Ed. the next semester.]

I digress.

BUT
this, this Algebra II and the important grade would be different.

I worked and worked. I studied. I got help. I did everything in my power. I took the test. Easy, easy test. I easily must've made like, an A+ on it.

The next day or whatever I went and checked the test score sheet outside Mrs. Patton's office. There, in plain black and white, was my name, and my grade: 50%

I was in a sweat for a day or two, then I got my report card.
Algebra II: C-

Who knew? I do love math after all.

Anyway, enough of that-- on to the good stuff.

I checked my this morning and figured that yesterday I had over 7 times as many visitors I usually have and over 10 times my weekly new visitors. This is an encouraging development for a pretty new blogger.

So thank you all very much for your support. I really appreciate.

Thank you,
Cory

PS-- To thank you all once again, there is a secret link to a wonderful place hidden within the text somewhere.

I'm curious if any one has found it yet. It seemed appropriate at the time.

All those moments of painstaking scrolling and I uncover... a purple dancing man-eater. --Egad!

I don't what came over me. I googled "story time" to see what I'd get.

I'm a disgrace to my uniform.
