Right!

1. I don't write in my books, although I do take notes.

2. I use a lot of post-its to colour code and flag ideas.

3. I'm a fast reader.

#3. It's not that you're incapable....it's that you have a "critical eye," and seek to understand every little detail and nuance.

You're right. I'm a relatively slow reader. I read each passage fairly quickly, but go over it several times to absorb the rhythm and cadence of the words, and to cross-reference with other books. Don't forget all the words translate into colours for me, as well. I also take a lot of breaks because it's hard for me to focus very long.

3. I'm having pizza for lunch.

Yep, sadly it's number three. I'm losing my mind, here.

I haven't yet. I'm not sure they could anything for me. I'm optimistic at the moment. Trap is still in place, a window is open, and he's been stirring about. Hopefully this will be over soon.

If it were me I'd want to lay many large rat traps. Even though I really like squirrels.

I like squirrels, too, although my affection for them has diminished over the past three days.

I'm googling remedies, but I'm sure you've tried them all. Maybe high-pitched noise?

Any noise just make him hunker down and hide.

1.) I have received a great grade for my current class which is Spanish 202.

2.) A grocery store across the street from my school allows customers to have a free 8 OZ cup of Yerba Mate every Monday.

3.) My school gives free lunch tickets to eligible students; eight tickets per term.
