  4. Frisky Librarian - Vespertine is awesome.

    Twisted Susan - That well googled! :) I did a subject on rhetoric this semester and Aristotle is all about the enthymeme

    DDG - I think I am sensing a pattern...I'll e-mail you my favourite peanut butter cookie recipe (ok, that's a lie, but it's my favourite gluten free peanut butter recipe! :)).
