    I can just imagine... Mr Joe Schmoe, Obey's boss comes walking in and comes face to face with a full sized Darth Vader. He turns on his heel "I won't ask" he mumbles.

    Good plan //runs off to change sig line//

    ..and I like my boss. He seems to be a good guy. :D But I'll still let Vader "convince" him that I need opening day off. :D

    Speaking of signatures...
    Admiral, you have a species name in your sig... the first word of it should start with a capital but not the second, also it should be either italicized or underlined. (Sorry, biologist have this drilled into them, its a bit of a pet peeve now)

    actually, "burned" has become accepted as proper in American-style english.

    "burned" is a verb, not an adjective.

    Did somebody mention grammar?? :D **bats eyelashes and flashes English BA yet again**

    Actually, both "burned" and "burnt" are acceptable, and "burned" is used much more now than "burnt." In fact, "burnt" is archaic and... dare I say... old skool. :D I mean, c'mon, how often do you actually hear somebody say "burnt" anymore? Really?

    //end grammar lesson

    ....

    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazzzuuuuuuuuuuuuuuup? ;)

    I hear burnt quite a bit.

    But I have several bachelor friends that don't like to go out for dinner.

    hehe, I'm not grammar police, just a habbit I have. I'm not going to go through and correct people just out of the blue, but they were talkin 'bout it. (I don't care what the BA says, I think I'm right, hehe)

    All my friends hate letting me read things they've written b/c I always have to correct their grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. I used to want to be a journalist (still do kinda), and in high school I was the human spellchecker for just about every story in the paper before we went to print.

    BTW, Dragon, burn is a verb, burned or burnt (whatever) is an adjective. ;)
